Private Drum Teacher

I am a professor of percussion at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
I can teach all styles but prefer jazz. I think the most important thing to learn is keeping good time and staying in the pocket. I have two books published: "The Art of Drumming" and "Deeper Into The Art of Drumming" endorsed by Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, and Roy Haynes. The object of the lesson is to get you out there playing gigs and earning money. Go to kaufmansartofdrumming.com to get more information.

About Richard

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers

Rich really has a great feel for the needs of the student, And he has a great way of teaching music and music theory to someone who has no background in it. The lessons were a gift from my four boys and I plan on continuing the lessons going forward
Tim S.
The thorough and patient instruction is much appreciated.
Timothy B.
It's nice having a pro like Richard customize the lessons because he creates a greater understanding of music theory as a whole and then can bring it back down to a specific application like practicing scales with a clawhammer technique. I can tell he's gradually moving me along to meet my personal goals. You can't get that out of a book or a video.

Experienced teacher and performer. I teach at the college level all the way down to youngsters (5 year old minimum age for me). I LOVE music and playing the drums and I'd like to share my experience with YOU!

As a performer I've toured the country multiple times with various artists, sometimes playing to crowds as large as 7,000. I've been on dozens of recording sessions and I've performed in just about anything type of venue you can imagine.

As a teacher I've maintained a roster of private students for over 10 years while also teaching as adjunct faculty for multiple colleges in Massachusetts. Additionally, I have a music therapy background which has shaped and informed my teaching style.

My favorite genres are jazz, rock, R&B, country, metal, basically anything with rhythm! Lets connect and get you moving forward on your instrument.

About Patrick

A strongly devoted musical student throughout his grade school years, Patrick came to Boston in 2004 to study at Berklee College of Music. He is currently a multi-instrumentalist and music educator in the Boston area, touring with multiple New England groups. With a diverse background and teachin

"When I say he is the best instructor ever, I mean that he is the BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER! I took lessons from a teacher closer to where I live, however, did not feel I was effectively learning. I decided to look in the Atlanta area for someone, thinking there would be more options. Casey came up so I decided to give him a try. The hour+ drive I take to get to him is 110% worth it. I have learned so much from him; he is incredibly talented and has the best teaching strategies...not to mention he is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I look forward to continuing to work with him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to seriously learn to play drums."

Yuichi has been a really great teacher for our 7 years old son. He is very patient and really great with kids.
