Private Drum Teacher

I can teach everything from how to hold the sticks and hit the drum using proper technique to reading drum charts and understanding notation, (and even some music theory if you like). I have experience playing multiple genres, including rock, jazz, and funk, and I have a wealth of drum books to draw from, from having taking lessons on and off from various teachers since age 10.

About Paul

I began taking drum lessons at a very early age and continued on and off with various teachers for the better part of twenty years. I will always be grateful to them for the knowledge and wisdom they imparted on me and for the positive influence they have had on my life, especially the ones with wh

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

"Ben has been teaching my 8 year old daughter drum technique since Nov 2015. He has done a great job at connecting with her too make her excited about music! I appreciate how he encourages her play intuitively, which is teaching her principles that she can apply in all aspects of music, not just in playing the drums. I would recommend Ben for a student of any age, but I have been impressed with how he has connected with my daughter."

"No experience, no problem. Colin knows how to play.

I had never played drums before my first lesson but I had a singing background which gave me a good rythm. Colin was able to assess my coordination and abilities within that first lesson and understand how hard to push me. Colin is very good at the drums but knows what it takes to get there. Despite his elite skills he is able to relate well to the beginner, understand the different issues they are having, and provide a solution. I've been taking lessons at Colin's house where he has a couple of drum sets in the basement. The equipment he has is very good. It can be a little cold in the basement during a minnesota winter but when you're drumming it's not a big deal. I would say that his basement is an average place to play, but he's got good equipment which is most important. While teaching he doesn't follow a lesson book. He provides a good progression of excersises that allow you to gradually learn while using the entire drum set. Colin is a great teacher who is always willing to answer your questions and provides very fun lessons."

"Jimmy is the best instructor ever!! I went into playing drums not really having any knowledge of music what so ever. I have been playing for 7 months now and I have learned so much. He is so encouraging and is always giving you positive feedback on how your doing and it makes you feel good about yourself and how you play. I am always learning new things about my instrument and how important my roll as a musician is no matter who I am playing with or for. With Jimmy the lessons might be once a week but he is always there no matter what day or time to help you out with any questions you may have. He is the best there is no one else like him!!! Every lesson is fun and I look forward to going every week!!"

"Michael is a patient and encouraging teacher. His lessons are energetic and we always get a lot done. You can tell, too, that he is knowledgeable and passionate about the material. He can apply both technical skill and professional experience to his lessons, while also adapting to the student and allowing them to advance at their own pace. He motivates with praise but will tell you when something needs work/practice. I leave every lesson excited to continue learning and improving. I recommend lessons with Michael!"

Drumstick Sizes and Types - And Why It Matters

Drummers, you've got it easy.  Grab some sticks and something to hit, and your makeshift instrument is just as good as the real thing... right?  Sure, maybe if it's just an impromptu jam session with friends.  But for proper technique and to really improve on the drums, you'll need the right equipment - which includes your drumsticks. Choosing the right drumsticks can be as selective as buying a violin bow for violinists, and you may need to test out several different types before settling …
