About Joseph

I have been playing music for over 25 years and teaching for nearly 20 years. I have been a successful part of Rock Bands, Jazz Bands, Blues Bands, Marching Bands, etc. So, whatever style of music you are interested in or wanting to learn, I can help!

I am currently a working musician with multiple groups in Southern California as well as a working Studio session musician. This helps bring a lot of up to date and "real life" knowledge and skills to every lesson.

On top of that, I have spent the past 10+ years honing my skills for Training, Coaching, and Developing. So, I can promise two things. You will get results and you will have FUN!

I will design your lessons around you and your goals......not mine!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ultimately, my goal is to make sure you enjoy yourself and want to keep coming back. In t

hat process I will make sure you get results.

I am laid back and very patient. Two qualities I feel are necessary to be successful in this field.

I design my curriculum for each individual. This is because everyone has their own goals, there own level of ability, and their own needs as far as how to get there.

Locations:
1) If you are located in Orange County, all lessons will be at my studio in Santa Ana.

2.) If you are located in the Southbay or West LA, I will come to your house for lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Drumsets, PA system. Amps, Guitars, and Keyboards.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have acoustic guitars, a practice pad, and a djembe. I expect my students to have their own drumsticks and, ideally, their own guitar and practice pad or drumset.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock/contemporary & marching band style percussion/drums. I also specialize in folk style guitar and bass.

I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

About Matt

I am passionate instructor who is fueled by seeing success in others. No other feeling is more fulfilling then seeing the growth of another human.

I have been teaching private lessons in my own studio for about 8 years now. I've taught 7 marching bands and currently writing music for some with an emphasis in percussion.

Currently pursuing a degree in Music Business at Northern Illinois University. I've participated in Drum Corp. tours such as Colts Drum & Bugle Corps ('13) and Phantom Regiment ('14-'16), and also marched 5 seasons of WGI with Cavaliers Indoor Percussion.

The drums are the backbone of most music, so you have to be able to feel the groove and stay tight and on top of the beat. I encourage students to pick their favorite songs, and we drum to those while learning proper technique, rudiments, song form, fills, rhythm, different grooves / beats, and anything they want to know about the drums. I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years and have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music. Drums is a beautiful art and form of expression and is just the tip of the iceberg we can tackle called Music.

About Eric

MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w

hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

Eric is super nice, helpful, and the best part is he didn't laugh too hard when he heard me sing on the recording we were working with! He always works at my pace and is super easy to communicate with. Thanks brother!

I've been playing drums since I was 8 years old, and I've been teaching regularly since 14. I love everything drums/percussion related and I really want to share everything I've learned at a reasonable price so others can experience the same joy that I know I do.

I'm the oldest of 6 boys and have a lot experience working with kids. My approach to teaching values having fun over anything, this is music after all.

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.

About James

Hi! I have been a drumset educator for over 3 decades. I benefited from formal education on the drumset, and I want to pass that along to you so you can experience the full joy that this wonderful instrument can bring you! I understand that each student's journey is specific to them as an individual. As such I tailor my teaching to the direction that they want to go with drumming.

Jim has been a fantastic teacher to our son. He explains everything patiently and approaches his lessons very systematically. He selects songs that incorporate essential drumming skills (e.g. songs that include doubles, paradiddles, accented notes, etc.). This way, the the student is able to develop an understanding of how theory fits practice.

My students have fun and learn quickly! I teach all skill levels and all styles of percussion, specializing in drum set, orchestra percussion, and four mallet marimba. Every beginner that takes a lesson with me with be able to play a drum beat and a snare drum piece on day one. After a few more lessons, they will be learning songs and creating their own drum beats! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

About Nicholas

I am a professional drummer and percussionist. Currently playing with Meadow Brook Theatre's musical productions, in a four piece hard rock band- Rezination, and with the Adrian and Rochester Symphonies. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelors of Music Education.

My students can expect to improve every week in their drumming technique and musicality. Every drummer has a unique voice; I teach students foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I encourage students to drum with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. Students can learn to play contemporary music by ear, by using lead sheets, and how to read music and pursue classical excellence. I also teach rudimental snare drum, marching tenors (quads), four mallet mari

mba, timpani, and hand drums.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Kevin Peter Jones is an active drummer, percussionist, and music instructor in the D.C. Metro area (DC, MD. & Northern Virginia). He has over 30 years of teaching experience and a passion for sharing the gift of music with others.

About Kevin Peter

Kevin started his musical journey at the age of 8 and has not yet stopped. He began his study on a traditional drum kit and branched out to orchestral percussion from his participation in school orchestra and marching band.

He plays and teaches everything from rock, jazz, and pop to orchestral instruments, like the timpani and hand percussion. It's safe to say that music is Kevin's life, and he feels blessed to be able to inspire the love of music with his students.

High school was the first step towards Kevin becoming a professional musician, as he was fortunate enough to attend Elk Grove High School in Chicago, which had an award-winning marching band and orchestra. He was a top All-State soloist during this time and decided to continue his study of music in college.

Kevin attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music and Georget

own University (amongst others) to further his musical education in the realm of jazz and orchestral percussion. He gained exposure to many different styles and had an active performance and recording career alongside his studies.
