About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different b

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

My experience speaks for itself. From Drum Corp to being on tour to studio work to theater shows there really is not much I haven't played or taught, I focus a lot on how to practice because not many people really know how to practice the right way to get the most out of their performance.

About Greg

The way I teach is a little different than most teachers. Not many teachers actually teach how to practice and that seems like it's the biggest setback for new and experienced students. My experience with being on tour and with Drum Corps and theater work and Studio work I have learned that there a

Drums are the heartbeat of any musical situation. The way the drum-set is laid out makes it easy to feel how music works and fits together. In our lessons we'll be sure to cover the basics of hand technique, rhythm, melody and theory to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. Concepts are taught through the use of various method books in addition to listening exercises, ensuring a well-rounded approach to becoming a great musician.

About Anthony

Anthony is a drummer, educator and composer based in Los Angeles. He studied at Berklee of Music for his (B.M.) and Thelonious Monk Institute at UCLA for his (M.M.) He performs professionally and has experience teaching a wide variety of music genres including Jazz, Funk, Rock, Afro-Cuban and P

Not many world-class musicians are also great teachers. They either aren’t humble enough or never took the time to learn how to explain what they do. Anthony Fung is a true exception. As a lifelong fan of the drum set but someone who was always too intimidated to learn, I tried many teachers in-person & online and walked away feeling confused more often than not. Anthony was the teacher who changed that.

I first discovered Anthony’s drumming hearing him at the Newport Jazz Festival playing the drums with Grammy Winner and virtuoso pianist Danilo Pérez. Never have I been more blown away by hearing a musician live. He was in his early 20s at the time and had all the signs of someone with a special gift who would go very far in the music world. The drumming spoke for itself.

Then, later that day, he taught a drum clinic for hundreds of under-privileged high school students and adults that had the room buzzing. I saw the profound difference in the students’ playing immediately. And it became clear why people all over the world contract Anthony for his teaching.

We kept in touch over the years and I took lessons whenever I was in Los Angles at his studio. After the first lesson, I found I had already learned more facility at the drum set than from years of slogging through method books and teachers who didn’t know what they were doing.

Since the beginning of this year, I have switched over to weekly online lessons, which I found to be just as effective as in-person studies. We are now studying advanced concepts and exercises for developing technical facility and versatility as a drummer in the 21st century (and I played my first gig on the drums!). I feel truly fortunate to be able to take lessons with one of the world’s greatest drummers. No matter what genre you play, and whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced drummer, I know you’ll benefit immensely from Anthony’s experience, world-class artistry, and personable approach.

My nephew takes lessons with Anthony and he wanted to play like Travis Barker. He learned how to play All The Small Things and Adam’s song with Anthony, and he sounds great!
Alex Hahn
Anthony is a tremendous teacher who does a great job sharing his passion for music. He has amazing experience and has thoroughly studied many different genres. I highly recommend studying with him to take your musicianship to the next level!

Online Drum Teacher

I am thrilled to hear that you or your kid is ready to start taking drum lessons! I have been teaching drum set and percussion for eleven years, and last year finished my master's in percussion performance at CU, after a music education degree in Michigan.

I start students off with "repeat after me" style exercises to develop technique, coordination, and musical tone on the instruments. Then, we can dig into playing the music (s)he loves! I'm always curious to hear if there is a certain band or drummer my student admires?

About Stephen

Hey drummers! I am a working drummer and percussionist in all major styles, from blues, funk, and jazz to classical and marching band. In my off time, I enjoy playing in the mountains with my girlfriend and our cat.

Mr. Blackwell is very kind and is an amazing teacher. He takes time to help me understand music especially the theory sections. He is not just a music teacher but he is an excellent mentor.
Paul
Luther has been very helpful at teaching me the basics while also making sure we move at a pace in which I am comfortable before jumping into any new exercises. I look forward to having him as a teacher for a long time.
Brian Gee
When I was 53, I decided that I would like to learn how to play the bass guitar. I contacted Mr. Blackwell to see if he would be interested in teaching an older person how to play music. Mr. Blackwell told me that he could teach me how to play and my age is not an issue. I still remember my first lesson. I showed up with a music book and Mr. Blackwell said we are not going to use a book at this time because he wanted to teach me what I needed to know for my skill level, which by the way was novice! Three years later, not only can I play the bass, read music and improvise as needed, I play in a band and we are on the radio! If you are thinking of learning music or want to advance your music skills, Mr. Blackwell is the teacher that you are looking for! Bravo Mr. Blackwell!

I've been teaching drum set for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to properly hold a pair of sticks and as time goes on you'll be able to effectively keep time, and play along to songs. I specialize in rock, fuck, pop, and blues drumming. In my lessons I typically us the instructional books Syncopation by Ted Reed and the Drummer's Bible by Mick Berry. At lessons I have two drum sets, drum pads, sticks, brushes, music stands, and various drum books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and am excited to teach.

About Danny

I have been playing and performing the drums for the past 16 years. In a teaching situation I try and provide a relaxed and friendly environment in order to learn a students strengths and weaknesses. I want students to be able to learn at their own pace, and not to worry if they think they are

"My son (6) and I have both been taking drum lessons with Bobby for close to two years and it's been an awesome experience. My son, of course, started from scratch, and I had some basic chops before starting, but with seemingly endless patience and dedication, Bobby has gotten both of us to sound great. We quickly progressed from basic 4/4 rhythms into the cooler world of paradiddles and ghost notes, learning techniques like dynamic drumming that go a long way towards making us both sound like legitimate drummers.

Knowing basically nothing about the technical aspects of drumming when we started, we needed Bobby's help to set up our kit. He showed us how to tune our drums, position the toms and ride/crash cymbals, and all around just get the best sound possible out of our basic TAMA drum kit. When Bobby gets grooving on our drum set, it becomes obvious that it’s not the size or cost of the kit that matters.

When we talked about what styles of music we were into and the kind of music we wanted to play, Bobby found perfect selections for us to play along to and he seems to have the sheet music to every song out there! One time I filmed a street musician drumming the funkiest of beats and after I showed it to Bobby, he broke it down for me so that I could play it too.

Bobby has been the perfect instructor for us and I strongly recommend anyone at any level to become a student of his."
