Private Drum Teacher

I believe that drumming is a universal practice for joy, health, communication and discipline available for anybody...any age...any brain...any body.

I enjoy helping other people find the groove within them, strive to improve, and adapt their drumming regimen to make "the work" of drum practice feel more like the "play" of sport and meditation ... fun, free, and refreshing

I studied with Abel for 3 years as an adult student and had a great experience. He’s a very dedicated drummer and teacher, is patient and smart, and is also a cool guy to hang out with. He became a great mentor, and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am today without him!

Wonderful drum teacher! Works well with children of all ages and is incredibly patient with his students. I’ve known Abel for years and I highly recommend him for students looking to improve for their technique to compete in school bands.

Jimmie is a great instructor. Perfect for kids. He’s patient and my son looks forward to coming to his lessons!
Tory H.
My son is extremely pleased with his drum lessons he is receiving from Instructor Jimmy Howell Jr..
Desiree
Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

"THE BEST!!! We are so blessed to have met Mr. Spencer. My 10 year old son is so engaged in the lesson and the practice at home because Mr. Spencer is so encouraging!! Mr. Spencer is so generous with his time and talent. He helped us choose an appropriate starter set for my son and set it up for us at our house. We are so grateful for that!
