Daytona Beach is known for its amazing beaches and exhilarating automobile races. NASCAR’s famous Daytona 500 coupled with the city’s fantastic resorts seem to make Daytona a city that could not ask for anything more. Then again, here at TakeLessons we think that the city could use some new musical talent.

Gregg E.

Daytona Beach, FL

About Gregg

My name is Gregg and I was born in Daytona Beach and have been a life long resident of this area. Like most drummers my interest in drums began when I was a small child. I would collect empty coffee cans and gather a couple sticks from the yard and "make a joyful noise". When I was in elementary school I joined the school band and learned to play the snare drum and other percussion instruments. At the age of 14, I joined my first "garage band". Our first gig was at "Skateland". We received $5.00 per man. Since then I have been in countless numbers of bands and played at many different venues
in and around the Daytona area. In 2005 I started the Daytona chapter of "Drummers for Jesus" of which I am still the chapter leader.
I have been playing drums for over 45 years and my passion is helping others learn to play. Learning to play a musical instrument has a positive affect on every aspect of your life. You're never too old to get started so don't let age stop you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am currently enrolling new students of all ages and skill levels at very affordable rates. I am a registered Drumsense instructor. Drumsense is an internationally acclaimed teaching program that uses a proven method based on books and playalong material by contemporary players and teachers.

From day one you will be playing on the drum set. Many students are able to play several basic beats to music on the first day. We will cover many genres of music over time. You will learn all 40 drum rudiments and how to apply them to the drum kit,as well. Every one of my students have been excited after their first lesson when they see what they are able to accomplish when they are given proper direction.

I have a fully equipped studio with multiple drum sets to accomodate all ages. My studio is equipped with a sound system for playalong music and other valuable teaching tools that I use that make the learning experience fun.
If you are interested in getting started on a fun and exciting adventure of learning to play the drums, contact me today and make an appointment.
If you have an ipod I can record your entire lesson on it at no extra charge. I provide a hard cover notebook to keep lesson notes in and play along music on CD's to practice to at home.
The program I teach is very comprehensive and structured which makes learning to play the drums easy and fun for all ages.
I look forward to hearing from you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in music store with 3 drums sets: 2 for adults and 1 for children.

*** Specialties ***
All genres of music are included in program.

Great instructor!

My son who is 6 started lessons with Gregg 3 months ago. I cannot believe how much he has learned in that short time. Gregg is very encouraging and is able to keep his students on track and focused while still having a great time. I would highly recommend Gregg for any age student as he is very knowledgable, patient and kind!

Mr. Eckerson is wonderful!!

My son started taking lessons with Mr. Eckerson over the summer of 2012 in preparation for 6th grade band. His experience with his band teacher was, for lack of better words, horrible. Mr. Eckerson made sure that Jake's confidence wasn't shattered and that his desire to learn was still intact. Jake is still getting lessons and is loving learning his craft. Without Mr. Eckerson Jake most definitely would have given up on even wanting to learn. I see his confidence getting stronger everyday and I don't even mind the noise coming from his bedroom!

Wonderful Teacher

My son has been taking drum lesson from Gregg for 4.5 years. Not only is my son the 1st chair percussion in his Middle School Advanced Band and also the Jazz Band but he made The 2013 Middle School Volusia All County Band. None of this would have been possible without taking lessons from Gregg!

Eric B.

Port Orange, FL

About Eric

Music isn't just a career choice: it is a way of life. I have been playing music since I was a toddler; everything I have learned about life has been through music. I believe that self-expression is important to being confident with yourself. I look forward to sharing my passion for music and teaching with any students who are ready to learn!

I have over a decade of performance experience and have played along the East Coast with several bands. Some venues I have performed at recently include The Plaza Theatre in Orlando; Backbooth in Downtown Orlando; The Crowbar in Tampa; The Bandshel
l and The Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach. Some groups I play with are Run Rhino, The Mighty St. John's, The Children of Stone, and MPG (Mobile Performance Group). I am a versatile musician who primarily performs and instructs on Drums, Bass, and Guitar (acoustic and electric). I teach nearly all styles of music, including classical, jazz, funk, and rock. I have graduated from Stetson University with degrees in Digital Arts, Music, and Business.

I am also an accomplished computer musician and sound engineer. I am fluent in a range of professional software programs which includes Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Amadeus Pro, Cubase, and MaxMSP. I have done sound for large national touring acts such as Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, and Matt Costa.

I feel that nothing is impossible. Great results aren't given, they are earned, and I know how to set goals to reach those results. This is a virtue I like to share with students. My dedication to music has helped me accomplish much at a young age.

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons accommodate the unique needs of the student. My lessons don't merely teach you musical theories: I will teach you how to express yourself through your instrument as you learn those theories. You will gain technical knowledge and the tools to experience your musical potential. Lessons with me are the perfect extra-curricular activity for your child, or a great experience for you. A large part of my curriculum is more than learning how to play a few cover songs. The lessons are also about becoming more confident with yourself as a person and developing character along the way. You will learn about the discipline, patience, and dedication that it takes to stand out among professionals, not just as a musician, but as a strong individual. Music is a part of that. What you play becomes an extension of yourself. Young or old, everyone has something to share with the world through music.

In a given lesson, you can expect half of it to be about the basics of your instrument and the literature for reading music. The other half is about how you can apply these principles in a unique way that relates to yourself. However, the lesson is all about the student. If the student wants to learn in different ways that is never a problem. All I ask is that you're eager to learn! Everybody has different musical tastes and different learning styles. That is what makes every musician unique and every lesson exciting.

I enjoy teaching people of all ages 5 and up and have experience teaching groups or individuals. From beginner or experienced, hobbyist or professional, every person has a place in the wonderful world of music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio: computer, recording gear, mics, amps, keyboard, guitars, bass, drum kit

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to their house I ask students to provide their necessary performance materials, i.e. drumset, guitar and amp, essential books, etc. I always provide all necessary teaching equipment, i.e. computer, additional guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Drums- Funk, Jazz, Classic Rock, Metal, Punk, Blues, Hip-Hop
Guitar/Bass- Funk, Blues, Metal, Rock, Hip-Hop
Music Recording/Songwriting- Electronic Music/electro-acoustic, Rock, Funk

We think Eric is great teacher too! I have been bringing my 6 year old son for drum lessons for several weeks and he has been great with him. I was amazed after the first lesson that he already had my son reading music. The progress they make in 30 minutes is amazing! Thanks Eric :)

Lela G.

Deland, FL

About Lela

QUALIFICATIONS:
MUSIC AND EDUCATION:
I am 23 years old and have recently finished school for my degree in Music Therapy and just completed my 900 hour (6 month) internship at a behavioral health hospital.
I have been musically involved for eleven years, gaining experience from many avenues including band, private lessons, and musical gigs. I taught music theory and ear training at an after school music and arts business for 1.5 years and worked with a variety of students ranging from 6 years old to twenty years old. As a music therapist, I am required to be proficient on my main instrument
(flute) plus on guitar and piano. I am also required to be proficient in the creation and implementation of goals and objectives, people skills, and to have an empathetic, understanding, and positive approach in all I do. I believe these skills contribute greatly to the effectiveness of my teaching. I am also qualified and willing to teach adaptive lessons for students with all types of disabilities.

PSYCHOLOGY:
I have a minor in psychology and have always been interested in the subject which has lead me to much research of my own. I have completed a practicum at a behavioral health hospital and an internship at another behavioral health hospital. I have taken multiple psychology classes- a few being abnormal psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, and brain and behavior.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
Education experience: I taught music theory for 1.5 years in Tallahassee, Florida. I am currently a certified substitute teacher in Volusia county Florida for elementary through high school and I teach flute sectionals at a local middle school. I am also a teachers aide in two kindergarten classrooms. This job requires me to teach students individually and in small groups. I also do music groups with the kindergarteners once a week. Prior to this I have been a regular dividend in a kindergarten classroom for a semester, have lead flute choir and flute sectionals, and have volunteered often in an elementary art classroom.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
My teaching style is organized yet laid-back. I am understanding and positive in my approach.
I have access to lesson books/textbooks and can make suggestions for you based on your needs and desires.
Our first lessons will be based around assessing your strengths and weaknesses. From there I will create a schedule customized to your specific needs. Your input is important to me as I am always willing to be flexible based on your personal needs and preferences.
Learning is FUN so I will make sure you are enjoying the lessons as well as getting the most out of them that you can!

Juli R.

Sanford, FL

About Juli

Hi! My name is Juli, and I have the best job in the world! It has been said that "where words fail, music speaks." When you make music, you speak a language that transcends cultural, emotional, and age barriers and touches the soul. My passion is to help people to develop a level of proficiency that will enable them to be lifelong lovers of music.

I have a B.A. in music education, and have been teaching choir, musical theatre, and private voice, piano, guitar and ukulele for 8 years. My specialty is vocal technique, and I have experience working with singers recovering from vocal injuri
es (in conjunction with a speech therapist). If you want to sing pop, Broadway, jazz, or classical, I'm your gal!

I absolutely love teaching beginning piano, guitar and ukulele as well! While I do use method books to provide structure, I also like to get outside of them and use alternate teaching techniques to keep things fun.

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on.
