My drum lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of the student. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" mindset. Beginners will learn basic technique, reading, and coordination. Intermediate and advanced players will learn the skills necessary to take their playing to the next level. Some examples of genres and concepts discussed in lessons are rock, metal/double-kick, jazz, funk/fusion, Latin (Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, etc.), grooves and timekeeping, rudiments, polyrhythms/complex rhythms, 4-way coordination, and odd time signatures.
I utilize various method books, drumless tracks, and other listening examples to further the development of the student. I believe in keeping the atmosphere of lessons fun yet focused. A sense of humor and patience are required to learn such a complex instrument!
I also offer beginner level lessons on piano and guitar.
Lessons are available in the comfort of your home. All ages and skill levels welcome.
In addition to gigging, I also maintain a steady private teaching practice. From 2009-2013, I was a guest instructor at Berklee College of Music's annual Percussion Festivals, conducting drumset masterclasses and ensemble classes with mostly high school aged youth. In 2012, I was a counselor/instructor at Camp Jam, working with high school aged kids on bettering their musicianship and assisting them in performing with rock bands. I've also conducted small summer camp masterclasses at Boston Drum Center in Acton.
I still continue to perform and record regularly around New England and parts of New York, as well as teach privately. I also play cajon on some gigs, as well as guitar, piano, and am currently working on writing some original music, as well as several fiction and instructional method books.
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!
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).

Students can expect to will learn how to play drum set with proper technique, learn how to read music, write music, and transcribe by ear. Lesson curriculums are made to cater to the students goals and needs. My goal is to help my students grow as students, performers, and as people!
During this time I conducted the SDSU Percussion Ensemble, performed professionally with the San Diego Symphony and San Diego City Ballet, and had a large private studio of 37 students.
I recently moved to San Luis Obispo to work in arts administration. My experience as a professional performer, educator, and administrator provides my students with a well rounded background to pursue music at a variety of levels in a fun and engaging manner.
*** Lesson Details ***
Whether my students are young or old, taking lessons as a hobby or wish to pursue a career in music, I tailor my lessons to meet each individual student’s needs and expectations.
I have a lot of fun teaching and I want you or your child to have fun during our lessons.
I try to build on what the student already likes, listens to and has a passion for. I encourage students to bring their favorite songs and we usually end up working with those. I also like using songs by classic artists like The Beatles as they can provide a perfect (fun and familiar) platform to learn many different aspects of drumming and musical performance.
In addition to being a drummer and percussionist, I have a strong background in music theory and I want to make sure my students not only know how to play their instrument, but also become familiar with reading and writing music.
After a few months taking lessons, you or your child can expect to have a better understanding of music and have acquired the basic tools and techniques which will allow you to play your favorite pieces of music.
*** Travel Equipment ***
For drum set lessons, I will provide my own acoustic drum set as needed. It is highly preferred that the student have a drum set at their location. The student should also supply a location in which to have a private lesson.
*** Specialties ***
All styles of drumming
*** Curriculum ***
My curriculum changes depending on the student's ability level, age, and instrument of choice. I typically use a method book for reinforcement of musical fundamentals, and a supplementary "project" piece of music that the student enjoys playing and learning. I do this so that my students can see direct connections between music fundamentals and playing music that they enjoy. My own personal knowledge and experience as a musician is always added to each lesson as well.

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!

Please feel free to hit me with any questions before we start lessons!

Fun drum lessons that will make practicing and the lessons enjoyable for the students.
Can assess the musical weakness of the student and have a plan how to improve that.
I play other instruments with the students on drums to give them a feel of how to play with other musicinas

Before we get into my lesson structure, a little about me and why I know I can help.
I am a full-time musician and music producer. I started playing percussion in 6th grade, which was 14 years ago. Since then, I've literally immersed myself in music about as much as you can!
I've competed in honor and all-state band for 7 years in a row throughout middle and high school, was 1 of 6 awarded into the Governor's Honors program for percussion in 2010, and was the only recipient of a jazz drum set scholarship at Georgia College in 2011. Our high school percussion ensemble was one of the top competing schools in the state and so was our indoor drumline during 2007-2011.
Music has always been my life. I was INCREDIBLY lucky to have been fostered and taught by some of the most passionate and selfless music teachers in the state. Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way ...
In gist, here's are the skills I can teach you exceptionally well:
- Music Production
- Drumset / drumming

As far as music production goes, it's now my main focus. I started learning the ins and outs of music production in high school in 2010. Since then, I've taken courses in music technology throughout college, made music as a hobby, then took the full leap in January of 2016. I'm on the journey now and since that time I've had some pretty amazing things happen. I produce music almost every day, so everything you learn from me is what's current and what works!

Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way and help students learn to discover what they truly love?
I DJ as well. It's been amazing to DJ for over 20 weddings in the last year alone. I don't only do weddings, I also DJ around the city in clubs and venues every month. Started with the decks in 2011.
Flash forward to today and I'm hustling harder than ever. After graduating from The University of Georgia in 2015 with a degree in Management and Music Business, and a minor in Music Technology, I am a full-time, touring music producer and DJ. I reside in Virginia Highlands (very safe, family-friendly area) in Atlanta and have my own house, studio, and drum set, in which I can tutor you. In person - or online!

DJing and producing music go hand in hand these days. I started DJing in college for fun and for cash as a broke college student. That was back in 2011.
Flash forward to today and weddings, private events, and my own DJ gigs are the main way I make most of my income. I have 4 weddings booked already in October alone, some booked for 2019, and have done over 20 weddings in the last year.
I run my own Wedding DJ business with dozens of 5 star reviews ("OnCue Events" on weddingwire). And the DJ that I sub-contract under is one of Atlanta's top DJ's. Luckily, he was my mentor!
Check my weddingwire profile here if you would like:
If you're not interested in weddings, no fear. Those are great fun and a way to earn some money. But what's even more fun is playing your own shows. I've been lucky enough to have just signed with a booking agency for my artist name, Pure Colors, so I think I can teach you a thing or two about how to slay the dancefloor!
Here's what I know:
- How to DJ in Serato (currently using)
- How to DJ in Traktor
- Ableton DJing (less proficient)
Why I actually know what I'm doing:
I do this all the time. It's taken years of practice to become a great DJ. I used to think it was easy, but I've come to learn that with most skills in life, anyone can be okay and call themselves a DJ. But if you want to really get a grasp for how to professionally DJ, make smooth transitions, beat match amazingly (without using the sync-button...), read a crowd, learn new techniques and prep your tracks, and other things I haven't mentioned, well...
I can help!
Where I've played:
- Aisle 5 (Atl)
- Terminal West (Atl)
- 3 music festivals in 2018, (Athens Ga, Tennesee, Sparta Ga)
- 2 self-promoted events at Speakeasy Atl
A lot of people come out to these shows. Anyway, I hope that helps put some trust in me, that's the point of all this info.
Genres I DJ, and therefore what I can teach:
- House music (deep house, disco house, jackin house, funky house, downtempo house, G house)
- Pop and Top 40
- Rap / Hip-hop
Have any questions?
We'll go over all the basics if you're new to it, or I can teach more advanced lessons to those looking to get out of the bedroom and into the club. Let's talk! :)

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.
I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me.
