Donnie B.

Dallas, TX

Committed to providing a rigorous curriculum, Donnie readily adapts his teaching to best meet the needs of each and every student the first time around.

His key focus areas include drumset, marching percussion, classical percussion, hand percussion, and mallet percussion.

About Donnie

Greetings, Donnie here for all things drums, percussion, and music theory!

Throughout the past twelve years, I have been fortunate enough to hone in and utilize such teaching methods as Dalcroze, Kodály, and Orff, among employing some of my own.

I take pride in the unyielding commitment I have to a rigorous curriculum that promotes critical thinking and creativity.

My approach towards teaching is wheeled by the philosophy of "one-size-does-not-fit-all".

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to furthering your journey towards becoming better as both a musician and an individual
!

My son had been taking lessons with Donnie Bell for a year now and we could not be happier with his progress. Donnie gas very innovative approaches to teaching and is extremely patient and adaptive when needed. My son looks forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys practicing his rudiments and sets. Mr. Donnie has managed not only to teach my son how to play the drums, but to appreciate music and develop an ear for rhythm.

Ryan is an excellent teacher and my son has been taking lessons with him for over a month. He is patient, funny, and passionate about music but also knows how to connect with younger students. He makes class fun yet educational. We always look forward to our classes with Ryan. He has a true love for teaching and music. He is also open to suggestions from me regarding how to teach my son as well which is so very appreciated. We love Mr. Ryan!

Thomas S.

Richardson, TX

Lessons cover proper techniques as well as how to play with feel.

About Thomas

Hello, I'™m Thomas, but most people call me T. I started taking private drum lessons when I was 6 years old from Lucy Flohr. Ms. Lucy was one of the most influential and important people in my development not only as a drummer but in life as well (she's the lady in my profile picture). I met her at 6, and we'™re still friends 30 years later.
After Lucy I started lessons with professors at UNT (which in those days was NTSU). My glam band, Skin Deep, was getting major record deal offers, but it was 1992 when grunge took over. So under guidance of our attorney we didn'™t sign any offers. W
ith my high hopes deflated and a musically defeated heart I had to make a change. So instead of going to UNT to study music which I had been being groomed to do, I chose to go to Austin and attend UT. I graduated from UT in 1997 with a degree in psychology and decided to move to Los Angeles to follow my dream. My band broke up about a month later, but I formed a new one (Milkweed, which morphed into a blue grass band after I left, now called River Rouge) and got an indy record deal. We released "Milkweed....For Breakfast" on my birthday in 2000, and we did lots of regional touring for the next 3 years. Then I moved back to Dallas and joined JackAcid. We released "Life Through a Crazy Straw" on another independent label and toured regionally for a few years. Next was Crossing Ellum, which was fronted by Matthew JC (Founder of Emmy winning Small Guy Music and œMatthew JC and the All Stars). I spent several years playing with a heavy rock band named Social Jab that unfortunately ended before we released our CD titled S3V3N Years... I currently play in Marquis of Vaudeville.
I started teaching classmates in 7th grade and continued through high school. Then I took a hiatus from teaching with just a student here and there during college and my touring days. Now I'm back to teaching more than I'm playing, and I love it! I believe music is a phenomenal gift to us all in every facet, from listening, to learning, to creating, to performing, and it'™s an honor to be able to share my knowledge and experiences to help others learn to appreciate the blessing of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are catered to each individual student. If you want to learn theory, we will start from the beginning. If you just want to learn how to play your favorite songs, then that's what you'll learn. Your personal goals for drumming determine how I teach you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In-home music room w/ two drum kits (if needed) and seating for parents. Piano, guitars, bass, and recording equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide any manuscript paper necessary for first lesson, then I would expect students to purchase a blank manuscript book along with any books chosen to study.

*** Specialties ***
My lessons are catered to each student's goals.

There are no words to describe the benefit of drum lessons for my son. It goes well beyond drums. T is a fantastic drummer, a fantastic teacher, and now friend. As a fellow musician I learned a lot watching the lessons. Amazing experience and an amazing instructor.

I have been taking lessons with Thomas for a year and a half. He is very patient and explains things very well. I had no drum experience before I met him. I can read music and play better than I ever though I could for the limited amount of time I have been paying. I highly recommend Thomas for adults and kids. I have a busy work schedule and he has been gracious and flexible with my schedule.

Stephen B.

Fort Worth, TX

About Stephen

I have played alto saxophone since 2001 and drums since 2004. After I realized that music is what I wanted to pursue as a career, I attended Cedar Valley College where I studied music theory I-IV, jazz standards, improvising and classical repertoire. Through my studies I have learned various ways of teaching including slow practice, repetition, call and response as well as tricks that make learning fun.

*** Lesson Details ***
In order to make learning accessible, I find it easier to teach when the student is interested in their subject. I like to focus on making music fun, while still lear
ning. I'm a laid back person, but I have always needed to practice in order to get better so I expect my students to practice as well. Students will not only learn to play their instrument, but will learn that it can be an outlet for their creativity and expression. 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide sight reading material, music stand and drumsticks when necessary.
I expect drummers to own drum set(if possible) or at minimum own practice pad for beginners.

*** Specialties ***
I use a mimic technique where I play and have the student playback the same thing until it sounds correct. I also like to utilize hands on techniques so that it will apply to real world situations.
For drum set I have specialized in rock, but have tried to learn a variety of styles to become an asset such as jazz, R & B, metal, punk, pop and some Latin grooves.

Thank you Stephen!

Stephen was our son's first drum teacher and the experience was wonderful! He was very patient with Max, helped us pick and set up Max's first drum set, and provided extra material. We will miss Stephen as he has decided to move to Dallas. Best wishes to you Stephen and thank you for all your time!
