Hello my name is James! I'm a professional musician and teacher from Florida. I've earned my Bachelors of Science in Music in 2017, and have been giving one on one lessons since 2014.
I'm proficient in a variety of style of music on the drum; rock, funk, jazz, hip hop, gospel. My goal is to get you playing new beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.
Best part is, I've got all the instruments you would to need to play at my studio!

James is a very thoughtful and patient instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago as a child and always wanted to learn more. James was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable. I finally have the confidence to continue what I started many moons ago.

Thank you James! I was not that good with music growing up. Drums and guitar looks so complicated and I was interested. He is very patience. I don't have good rhythm with music! After getting 1 or 2 beats right i was excited! Practice and lessons make Perfect?? I hope so! "

Private Drum Teacher

I have been teaching drum for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle

Hello, my name is Doyle B. and I am eager to help you reach your goals! I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees

Private Drum Teacher

I am a multi-instrumentalist with 8 years of collegiate education under my belt and coursework in music theory, jazz, composition, and audio engineering.

I perform professionally with groups on a weekly basis and play in a variety of styles.

Percussion was not my first instrument, so I had to work much harder to catch up to my peers. All of my formal education is strictly on auxiliary percussion, so I treat drum kit as an orchestra of percussion instruments, rather than a standard instrument. I am all about fostering growth through creativity and self-evaluation, and I seek to help students grow as musicians from a comprehensive perspective.

I walk students through more than just functional drumming; I enrich their knowledge and facility with studies in music theory, ear training, and composition to avoid training "drummers", but rather: musicians.

About Machado

I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, audio engineer, and educator based out of Portland, OR. I have 8 years of collegiate experience in performance, composition, theory, and pedagogy from Washington State University, University of Puget Sound, and Whitman College. I play

I'll get right to the point. Paul's personality made it extremely easy for me not only to be comfortable but to feel really appreciated. I was fearful that Paul may feel like, "oh great another person who THINKS he has something but can't sing a lick!" I experienced the exact opposite. Within 15 minutes he located what has been my most frustrating issue. I felt like I was already ahead of the game and we hadn't even started yet! Paul has the rare balance of a sense of humor and still following an agenda to meet my goal. Thanks to Paul I really feel like I can, and WILL reach all my goals. AND enjoy the journey to them!! Can't wait for the next lesson!

Online Drum Teacher

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Online Drum Teacher

Most times it is the beat that first draws you into a song. When you find your foot a-tapping to the rhythm of a song you know you're hooked into it! We'll begin by learning the parts of a drum kit, basic techniques, warmups/ exercises, rhythms, then we go into applying that knowledge to learning your favorite songs!

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of re

"These lessons were great. Regarding drums, I was an absolute beginner, and Tommy's lessons turned out to be an excellent jump-start. I used to play keyboards and guitars before, and I enjoy picking up by ear rather than reading notation, so I really liked informal and 'non-notational' way the lessons went. There was no hard notation drill, and yet Tommy had covered most rudiments, basic techniques, and patterns needed to rock in about 10 lessons. I'd recommend this for anyone who doesn't know how to hold sticks but want to get introduced into rock drumming."

"I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best."

"When my son's school mandated that all students learn an instrument and I found out that he had been assigned DRUMS, I was at a loss. The lessons provided by the school were basic and I didn't feel that my son was getting the full benefit of all the drums had to offer. Luckily, we found Mike!

Mike set my son at ease instantly. He is very personable and has the gift of getting to know his students in a genuine manner. His friendly demeanor and willingness to use humor, without talking down to his students, sets him apart. Mike took the time to get to know Tom, including his musical interests, so that he could create high-interest lessons that motivated my son to practice and increased his love of music. Mike was able to explain clearly to my son what they were doing, how to do it properly, and why doing it correctly was worth the time invested. Not having had experience with drums, I had no idea how much technique is involved! Mike provided not only drum lessons, but life lessons as well.

As a parent, I have always appreciated Mike's timely communication. I have never had to wonder when my son's lessons would be, when payment was due, or what to do when I had a scheduling conflict. (By the way, Mike understands the chaos that sometimes goes along with being a working parent.)

To sum things up, Mike is a charismatic teacher who uses his expertise to instruct his students in how to become exemplary musicians and people. I recommend him without reservations."

How Much Are Drum Lessons? 4 Factors That Affect the Cost

When you want to start beginning drum lessons, you'll find a variety of prices depending on a few factors. While the average price for a half hour lesson can range from $15 to $40, you might not be able to find a private drum lesson instructor at either end of the range. Some of the things that can contribute to how much you'll end up paying for beginning drum lessons are where you're receiving the lessons, what city you're in, and the experience level of your teacher.
