dy for me and all of his other students. Many years ago, I was lucky enough to have a professor in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at UCLA who had the ability to provide the perfect amount of background, not too much, not too little, in his graduate courses so that no matter what the student’s undergraduate degree was in, there was never a problem with them understanding the newly introduced graduate level concepts. And now, I am lucky enough that I found a drum instructor who was willing to take on an old guy (remember the many, many years ago stuff above ) and work around my problems with arthritis, senior moments, bad vision, and an occasional decrease in motivation. While I am probably his oldest student (a distinction I could have lived without), I have listened to him work with several younger, in some cases way younger, students and he is another one of those special people who can teach. Not everybody can teach. Of those that can, many don’t teach well. And, of those that can teach well, not all of them can teach well to people with a broad range of backgrounds, skill sets, motivations, and ages. Tony has the ability to teach well, no matter what your circumstances."

By Clint L. - Dallas Drums Instructor
Hey everybody! Dallas drum teacher Clint L. here. Today I want to talk to you about the Dallas, Texas music scene and more specifically, what it is like to be a drummer and teach Dallas drum lessons.
Dallas will always be one of the most exciting places in the US to be a musician. As you may know, one of the top music schools in the nation, The University of North Texas, is right outside Dallas. I had the good fortune of attending this school when it was still called North Texas State University. This institution continually turns out some of the finest musicians in the world.
On campus, you can usually find one of the lab bands either rehearsing or performing. There are many jazz and dance clubs in Denton. In Dallas, you can hear virtually any and every kind of music that you want.
As far as the drumming scene, Dallas has one of the biggest markets for cover bands of any city in the US. Currently I am a part of three different bands. One is a pop band that performs live every Friday and Saturday. The second is a Progressive Rock/Christian Rock band that has recently been signed by a record company in Oklahoma. The third band is an original project with a long-time friend who plays bass. This is more of a jazz rock band, and we are currently in the writing stage, and doing a good bit of recording as well.
Being a drummer in this market and teaching Dallas drum lessons is very challenging but exciting. If you want to make a living at this, you must be versatile and cover all styles. Yes, there is plenty of work but there are also a ton of musicians. The brotherhood of drummers has a very strong bond here. Even though we compete with each other, we also help each other out as much as we can.
I couldn’t be happier being a full time drummer and instructor here in Dallas. I have been staying busy not only with three different bands but also as a freelance musician. I also teach private drum lessons to a number of students, both beginner and advanced, out of my home or in the comfort of their own homes. If you are interested in taking drum lessons in Dallas, give us a call and join the fun!
