George D.
Great drum teacher. I studied with Richard about a year. I had played before, but Richard helped me build a better drumming foundation and guided me to me play better.
I now am able to play in a cover band and use some of the concepts and techniques that I learned from my lessons with him.
I highly recommend Richard for drum lessons.
Gary
My 12 year old son took lessons with Richard for 2 years in Antlanta. He is a very friendly and patient teacher. I was amazed how quickly my son progressed within a short period of time. He is now playing in his first band. Unfortunately we had to move out of state and my son truly misses his lessons with Richard, especially because Richard made it always fun. If you are looking for a drum teacher, who can bring the best out of your child, then Richard is the guy for the job!

I'm a full time touring musician, I studied music in school for 8 years, but I can honestly say I've learned more about music through my years as a touring musician. I find great joy in sharing all the things I've learned over the years.

I like getting to know my students; their expectations and goals as an aspiring drummer, and I build my curriculum around their needs.

In my lessons you can expect to learn, and have fun!

Sanil
Taking lessons with Kismat was both fun and educational, as it should be. I was introduced to a variety of different music theory concepts at a pace which suited me. It was never too difficult nor too easy. Of course your progress will be dictated by how much you practice, but Kismat's lessons will give you a clear path to follow. Over all I had a lot of fun learning from him, he's a great teacher and fun guy to jam with.
Kathy
Our son Joe has taken lessons with Kismat for about the last year. They have been the most productive lessons of our sons guitar playing! Kismat found a way to teach our son in a way that appealed to him and applied to his way of learning. I could not be happier with the experience! Thank you so much!
Ingrid
I was Kismat's employer at Guitar Center in Roseville, Minnesota. He was fun to work with and great with students of all ages and skill levels. His energy and positivity always brightened the day and inspired the customers.

I'm here to help you learn how to play drum set! For just about anything you want to learn on a drum set, with your time and dedication I can help you make it happen! I can teach across a wide range of abilities, levels, and genres. I also teach how to read music / drum set notation, in conjunction with rote learning.

I've played drum set for 19 years now, and you may be able to find videos of me playing around the Internet. I'm currently pursuing an MM degree in Composition and Theory Pedagogy from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins, and I have a BM degree in Percussion and Music Theory from the Eastman School of Music.
