Young Drummers of Atlanta: Get Out and PLAY!

By Rick A. - Atlanta Drums Teacher

Hi - I’m Rick A., a TakeLessons teacher in Gwinnett County, just outside of Atlanta. I’d like to talk about a growing trend in the area that gives young players taking Atlanta drum lessons an opportunity to play onstage with other musicians.

Jam Nights have become very popular in restaurants and taverns all over Atlanta and especially in the outer suburbs. Open Mic Nights have been popular for some time but are often limited to acoustic performers with no drum set on stage. Jam nights usually have a full or at least partial drum kit so drummers no longer have to sit in the audience and listen to their friends play acoustically. This is a great opportunity for those taking Atlanta drum lessons to get out and practice their skills!

Some of the venues are restricted to musicians 18 years old and up, and a few are even limited to 21 and up. Fortunately there are a growing number of family friendly venues with jam nights such as The Old Tucker Fountain and Shorty’s Pizza in Tucker (hosted by Chicago Joe) and The Black Diamond Grill in Cumming (hosted by former Falcons coach Jerry Glanville).

I’ve seen some remarkable young talent in all of these places. It gives young players the chance to get out and socialize with others like themselves to start bands of their own. So whether you’re currently taking Atlanta drum lessons or a beginning drum student, find a jam in your neighborhood and connect with your fellow drummers. See you at the jams!

About Aaron B.

Close

Lessons are customized for the students based on their interest and experience. I will cover the basics and rudiments with new students but allow them to create and follow their own musical path using a variety of methods and musical styles.
Learn to read, write, and play different styles of music with accompanying techniques and fills to add to your groove development.

About Aaron
Teaching drums professionally since 1998, Aaron has influenced hundreds of budding musicians to get the most from their instrument. He has studied privately with Rob Laytham (Modern Drummer columnist), Joe Leroux (marching band guru), Gary Chaffe (legendary drummer) and many others throughout the years. He has taken the best techniques and teaching styles from his influences and molded them together to form what he considers to be the most effective and inspiring method available.

I teach drum set in nearly every style and hybrid imaginable, as well as percussion and drum circle facilitation.

Accomplishments include recording 7 albums with various groups, touring with national acts across the west coast, drumming for the Warner Brothers Television house band, and still actively playing live shows and recording.

*** Lesson Deta
ils ***
I put my focus on inspiring students to explore their own creativity with the tools and techniques that I give to them and nurture. I think it is very important to cover the basic skills that the school districts expect from their music students (sight reading, proper technique, note recognition, rudiments, timing, feel, etc.). I also feel it is important for a student to find his or her style and an ability to use the fundamentals to create music that they enjoy. He has written a method book based on the fundamentals of playing a rhythmic instrument with an emphasis on allowing the student to find their niche and lead a group through a piece of music or tastefully support it.

My studios are fully equipped with sound systems, the latest recording gear, acoustic and electric sets, hand drums and dozens of other percussion instruments. I believe that the more resources a person can draw from, be it intellectual or physical, the more fulfilling the learning experience will be.

Each lesson, my students will take at least a page of music that represents the concept that they are focusing on, and a goal set to accomplish by the end of the week so that they can build upon what they already know in an effort to put the big picture together. Ultimately the student will learn when and how to utilize the concepts that they are practicing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
A Yamaha electronic drum set in my Mesa Studio allows me to control volume and dial up any sound imaginable. I have full acoustic drum sets in other studios that I use for recording and private lessons. Often I will integrate guitar, keyboard, or other instruments in to the lessons if needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sticks, Practice Pad, tuning kit, binder and books with teaching supplements.

*** Specialties ***
Music, Drums, Percussion, Theory, Composition, Piano and Guitar.
Drummers should be well versed in all genres of music. Rock, Jazz, Latin, Swing, etc.
Most of my students begin with concert and marching styles on a practice pad, then advance to the drum set.
I teach note recognition and placement, rudiments, linear playing, moeller method, rhythm theory, sub-division of notes and time, and the sight-reading to support these techniques.

I played Snare Drum in the drum line in the University of Alabama Million Dollar Band for four years. I am very experienced in rudimental snare drum and can help you learn the 26 basic rudiments as well as the advanced rudiments, and their application. If you're practicing for a drum line audition, I can help you set up a practice schedule, and we can work on your material together. Set yourself a goal and reach it!

About Stephen
Hi, thanks for visiting my profile! I love teaching. I hope you find this information useful. I have over 30 years of combined education and experience performing and teaching percussion and piano. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Percussion Performance from the University of Alabama,with Piano as my secondary instrument. I hold a Master's Degree in Percussion Performance from Indiana University, with a Cognate in Jazz Studies. I have taught private percussion, drum set, and piano lessons for over 30 years. I performed for 10 years as a contract percussionist with the Savannah Symphony Orchestra, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Macon Symphony Orchestra, and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. I have performed in orchestras with accomplished musicians including The Moody Blues (Chastain Park), Judy Collins, and Henry Mancini.

I like my students to have some fun while they learn. I ask that you practice 30 minutes a day, so that you can spend your lesson time learning and moving forward. For piano, I use the Alfred series, as well as the Real Book (jazz standards), and of course sheet music for classical pieces and popular tunes. After three months, you will have learned how to play the basic scales and chords, as well as some introductory classical and popular material. On drums after six months, you will know the first thirteen rudiments and some of the basic rock beats, and you will be playing with some rock ballads. After six months on piano, you will be playing all of the major scales and chords and the basic minor chords. You will be playing some Bach and Mozart, and you will start on some basic jazz standards. On drums, you will have learned most of the 26 basic rudiments, and you will be playing along with some medium tempo rock songs. You will have learned some coordinated independence to start playing jazz and swing styles (which by the way are the building blocks for playing R&B and hip-hop). And you'll enjoy the journey! I enjoy seeing my students grow as they learn. I have had students of mine go on to play in the Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps, get advanced music degrees, and become recording artists. The former Percussion Instructor at the University of Alabama was my percussion student. While I know that not everyone seeks to play professionally, you will learn the tools to play well. I look forward to teaching you!

Note: I will ask for an adult to be present during the lesson for any minor child (less than 18 years of age).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front and side entrance upright piano in living room plus drum set, electronic keyboard, seating for parents.

Drums --- Rock, Jazz

I had my first lesson with Stephen today and he is an awesome teacher. I've been teaching myself for the last couple of years and was very nervous about playing in front of anyone. He made me feel very comfortable and picked up my needs quickly. He's very flexible and patient. I have full confidence that he will take me to the next level of reading, performing and theory. I'm exited to have found Stephen and look forward to my next lesson.

All students will be equipped with the educational tools and knowledge to take their music career to any direction they choose, no matter how great or small. Short term and long term goals will be set and realized. The sky is the limit!! Let's begin the journey today!

About Allen
I started playing drums at the age of 8. My playing experience began in church. I participated in the marching, concert, and jazz bands in middle and high school. By the time I had reached the age of 17, I began playing drums professionally when I was offered the opportunity to play for Dove Award-winning, Grammy nominated Southern Gospel group The Martins. After high school, I went on to study music at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas on a music scholarship.

I relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Atlanta Institute of Music. After graduating from AIM, I began teaching privately and playing with various artists/groups around town. The summer of 2011, I embarked upon the “opportunity of a lifetime” to tour with 2x Grammy Award-winning Hip-Hop group Arrested Development in Europe. From there, I toured with th
e group in Japan, New Zealand, Dubai, and Qatar.

My son has always wanted to learn to play the drum. I contacted Take Lessons and was connected to Mr. Allen. As was expected, my son was a little nervous for his first lesson. After meeting with his teacher, Mr. Allen, he became very comfortable and was eager to attend class each week and was ready to learn. He loves learning to play the drum and he loves his teacher. Thanks Mr. Allen for being the patient and kind instructor that you are.

Groove is everything! Drumming is far more about feel than it's about flash. If you want to be the drummer who is in high demand you need to have both feel and flash, but feel is something that is not common. It's easier to learn flashy antics than a meat and potato drumming foundation. I've been a professional musician for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to bring your internal groove monster out, how to improvise solos, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

About Shon
My Name is Shon M.

I was raised in a family that has a tradition of passing the art of music down from generation to generation. I began playing at age 5 and I play 5 instruments professionally and 15 instruments in all. I studied music at Morehead State University and Musician’s Institute. I've been a touring and studio musician since the age of 16. I have been teaching music for more than 35 years. Many of my alumni have gone on to become professional musicians and teachers themselves. My approach to music education is somewhat unique, although it is gaining popularity in the mainstream of music education. I view music more like a language, as opposed to what some have called more of a data entry approach. Don't get me wrong, reading music is important and I do it everyday, but your music lessons should be teaching you how to play a
n instrument, not spending the majority of your time in learning to read right out of the gate. Yes there basics you must learn, but when you were a child, you didn't learn to read as you spoke your first words. You were learning to speak your language long before your learned your ABC's. There are many musicians with little formal training who play an instrument so well you'd swear you can see smoke coming from their fingers. Let me tell you, they weren't born that way. They learned to speak the language of music. The fact is, it's so much easier to learn to read music, after you have a basic understanding of how to speak the language. So say good bye to the frustrations of banging you head against the wall with the complexities of reading music and wondering how much longer you're going to have to endure this ongoing torture before you learn to play something cool, and say hello to having fun while learning how to play an instrument and the songs and styles you want to play...

You may have studied music before and given up because it was too difficult. Please know that's not uncommon. But I’m here to tell you, there is a better way! So if you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument or sing, there is no better time than now.

My piano/songwriting lessons with Shon never got off the ground. On one occasion he showed up 30 minutes late and left me waiting forcing me to cancel due to another appointment. The following week he cancelled literally teo minutes before our session was due to begin, saying he was sick. Then the following week he left me waiting and didn't show up for our scheduled session at all. When I emailed him he said he is overwhelmed with his new work schedule, won't be able to do our lessons and that I should get a refund.

I had even agreed to change my day/time when he said it would be better for him, only to be let down.

What a complete waste of my time and energy. Incredibly unprofessional and inconsiderate conduct.

I wish I would have started with Shon along time ago. I am fairly new, and he is very good at being patient with me but still allowing me to progress quickly. Lessons are packed with content, and I leave with "homework "to work on so by the time the next lesson comes around I have learned a tremendous amount. Two thumbs up !!

Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

Drums were my first real hobby, and a great confidence-builder when I was growing up. I've spent many hours playing drums, and it's become a very rewarding part of my life. I specialize in teaching the techniques of playing the drum set, and I'd love to show you how to do it. So, sign up! I promise it'll be fun. You won't regret it.

Up front, I would like to specify that I teach West African Drumming, not western percussion such as snare, bass drum, marimba, etc.
West African Drumming is best taught in groups but can also be taught solo.
This music is a combination of drumming, dancing, and singing that uses a whole slew of instruments, from bells and rattles to drums! Depending on the piece and what tribe the music comes from, either hand or stick drumming is done (or a combination of both!)

About Monika
Salutations people of TakeLessons! My name is Monika and I am a flutist, lead West African drummer, and a writer/poet.

Flute-wise, I have been playing for 12 years and teaching for a little over 7 of them. As well as teaching privately, I have organized and run rehearsals for flute choirs. I'm a big fan of auxiliary flutes!
Along with classical music, I am a huge lover of world music (more on that below) and like to incorporate Latin jazz, modern, contemporary, and pop/radio music into my teaching. It is so important to get well-rounded exposure in music and if you love other genres, it's an added bonus!

As a lead West African drummer, I have been studying the art form for 5 years. My focus has been on music from the country of Ghana, and specifically the Ewe people. This is not just a focus on drumming but on song and dance as wel
l - it's a marvelous trifecta. I have taught workshops in all kinds of settings with as many as 80 students at once! From summer programs, teacher professional development days, to in- or after-school activities, there is always fun to be had! While this style of music is best suited for a group of people, there is nothing stopping us learning the drumming techniques and lead drum parts privately.

In addition to my musical life, I am also a writer and poet. As a child to two immigrant parents from Poland, I grew up learning how to teach English, and in turn fell in love with the creative writing process.
A lot of my inspiration comes from my constant reading, musical adventures, and particularly my time in nature as a hiker.

Never hesitate to reach out with any questions - I'd be happy to connect :).

I've toured the world many times over, performing drums with Funk/R&B/Jazz/World music acts. I attended Berklee College of Music on a full ride scholarship, and have been teaching professionally for over 10 years, from clinics in Colombia, Costa Rica, West Africa, to workshops to students of all ages across the US, with award-winning groups such as Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, A.R. Rahman, & Women of the World. I listen to each students' needs and level, and in just a few lessons, I have seen students go from not knowing how to hold the sticks, to playing the drum parts to their favorite songs. I work hard to see my students reach their full potential as the next great drummers. Shoot me a message. I'm looking forward to getting started!

About Patrick
I live, breathe, eat, and sleep drumming. There's nothing more uplifting and meaningful as playing the drums to me, and I would love to have the honor to teach you.

I'm an award-winning world class touring/recording drummer and educator. I've lead drum & rhythm masterclasses across the US & Canada, as well as many other countries (Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica, West Africa, and more...) to students of ALL levels. After graduating from Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship in 2013, I went to Senegal, West Africa, to study the drumming language of one of the oldest drum cultures and perform with my mentors.

My goal is to bring each drummer I teach to their fullest potential, teaching drum technique, rudiments, coordination, independence, how to find the "pocket" and make the grooves feel GOOD so you get hired again and again
as a first-call drummer. My teaching is rooted in tradition, yet exploring ways to keep things fresh and exciting.

I am well versed in Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Funk, Rock, Fusion, Afrobeat, Reggae, and many traditional folkloric styles from Brazil, Argentina, Cuba, Haiti, Senegal, Morocco, and more. The drum lessons are specific to each student's needs and interests, and the amount of practice material will be relative the student's level of commitment. Each student will be guided to become the best drummer they can possibly be, while having loads of fun doing it.

I'm looking forward to being your drum teacher!

I have just about 15 years of experience playing drums. I have taken lessons from many drum masters with different perspectives. As a result, lessons with me will be unique because I can draw on all of my different experiences to craft a lesson plan that is perfect for you.

Beginners will see time on the drum from the very start of the lesson. I believe doing is better than explaining. With more advanced students, we can start to focus on playing by ear and learning different drum styles and patterns. Whatever your skill level is, I can build a plan for you.

About Kenneth
It all started when I took my first drum lesson in the 4th grade. From then on, I wanted to play whenever I could. I played in all my school bands from middle school to high school. Graduated Southern University, home of the world famous "Human Jukebox" which I was a member of for 3 years, as well as playing for my church since I was 13.

Along the way I have had the honor of meeting and learning from respected musicians such as Lawrence Jackson (former director of SU Bands), Herman Jackson (Brother of Randy Jackson), Jerry Lee Lane (Marching percussion pioneer) and countless others.

As a drummer that has played in all kinds of styles and venues, I can teach any skill level from the first time picking up sticks to making good drummers great and great drummers legendary.

Using my experience as a school band director (4 years), I
will come up with a customized lesson plan for each of my students that will stay on the best possible path to success. It is also because of this experience that I am also able to teach all concert/jazz band instrument method (ex. trumpet, flute, electric bass, etc.)

I have been involved in music since I was about 8 years old. I began by taking drum lessons and my teacher inspired me to always go above and beyond when it comes to your instrument. It is my hope that I can bring that same enthusiasm and inspire future students the same way.
