I have developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. I have the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers! My approach focuses on:
-building an understanding and relationship with each drum
-the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming
-how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums
-basic mechanical techniques
-development of each limb
-learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them
-learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set
-gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer
-learning your favorite songs on drums
-how to play in a band

About Casey
Hi I'm a 33 year old professional musician that has worked hard to become a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area. Over the past 5 years I have toured internationally, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and have gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. I studied music at The University of Mississippi and I am qualified to teach numerous styles including Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Electronica, World and many others. I have years of experience teaching private and group lessons (I'm a recurring Camp Counselor in Summer music programs). I offer inspired beginning drummers of all ages the chance to learn the art of drum set playing within a basic, relaxed, and fun context.

***I have a very
demanding teaching schedule at a local school but am currently accepting a limited number of students in their home.***

*** Studio Equipment ***
My drum studio includes 2 drum kits to help aid in visual learning, percussion instruments from around the world, a PA system to play along to music and great vibes!

*** Travel Equipment ***
For student's home lessons I require only the student's willingness to learn (having a drum or set helps too).

*** Specialties ***
Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression.

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!

Christian music worship artist teaching drums and how to properly manage rhythms and time measurements including being aware and sensitive to the feel and flow of the music

About Aaron
I am a musician of 20+ years that passionately enjoys teaching and helping students new to music in discovering and developing their skills and aptitude for music. I have performed live on many occasions in contemporary and religious settings. I come from a musical family: My father made an album in 1969 with Bob Seger and wrote nearly half of the music on the album. My brother was a part of a musical group that produced songs that made it to a Hollywood movie. I play multiple musical instruments and can help students learn some of their favorite songs based on their level of skill. I teach out of my home in Sterling Heights, Michigan. My goal is to help students develop an interest in music and an appreciation for the history and development of music. It is also my goal to help students develop their skill in music to a place where they
can become independent in their growth and exploration of music, music writing, and music performance.

You will also notice additional subject areas I am available to teach. These subjects are my passion and joy. Should you have questions, message me and I’ll be happy to answer them.

Music & Drums is my Life since 1995, Teaching is my passion.. did over 200 gigs,

(The Suzuki method is an internationally known music curriculum and teaching philosophy. The method aims to create an environment for learning music which parallels the linguistic environment.)

I believe in creating an environment for my students that makes them passionate , comfortable & inspires them to learn. Creating an interesting schedule that leads them to ask for more. Understanding my students behavior & adjusting my teaching style accordingly helps me deliver a successful student. Learn with fun..

About Rahul
Music & Drums is my Life since 1995, Teaching is my passion.. did over 200 gigs. I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. Performing almost half the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play & shred stage with BB KING on one of my gigs.My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 20 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio as well students home for the last 20 years now. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm
not doing my job! My students are encouraged to enter competitions and recitals, as well as work on composing their own original material, so they can feel good about their accomplishments and stay motivated to learn. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages! Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs..

I can teach all the basics as well as help an individual expand that skill in a short period of time!

Greatest guitar teacher in the world. Before Trey started training me, I struggled with grasping a lot of essential guitar techniques. His patience and expertise made it so easy for me to improve at an even faster rate than I expected. He was well worth every penny.

Where should I start?!?! I heard about trey via mutual friend and the rest is history! I’ve been playing for about 3 or so years now and want to advance my playing to become a dominant figure in the country music field. I found the answer. Treys knowledge on the fretboard was uncanny to the numerous quantities of other teachers I’ve had previously. Not only were the lessons, organized and meticulously detailed, they were extremely easy to comprehend and apply to my playing capabilities. I would highly recommend to any that are looking for a fun teaching environment, someone to drive you towards success on the guitar, and also, a potential catalyst to make money pursuing your passion. Thanks trey!
