Private Drum Teacher

Along with hand drums such as doumbek, I can teach you to transfer rhythms & techniques to other percussion instruments. At first I thought I couldn't learn middle Eastern instruments or gongs, but discovered I could. Learn to hold a steady beat to support the music, or someone soloing and eventually learn to solo yourself. My lessons build on the lessons before to develop a wide vocabulary. We'll explore and play other percussion instruments, too, if desired. Drum and be merry, come one, come all!

Chuks is amazing!!! alot of talented musicians i know really suck at teaching but he's a combination of both. He makes everything so easy that you start thinking like a pro in one hour. His personality is incredible! always smiling!:))
after a month of lesson i can easily play by ear and transcribe practically anything, and he makes you think "outside the box". Thank you so much Chuks!

WHAT YOU'LL GET WORKING WITH ME

Now accepting select drum students ages 10+ for live, one on one online lessons.

There's nothing more fulfilling than learning to play, and by studying with me, you'll get an incredible knowledge of the basics and advanced techniques of becoming a great drummer.

Whether your goal is to join your first band, lay down electronic beats for EDM, get better in your current band or church ministry, my goal is to help you excel quicker and better than you ever could by doing it alone.

I am a pretty serious drummer and accept students who are serious about their craft. You don't have to be incredible - but you do have to want to improve and have the dedication to study, practice, and perform. Oh, and we have a TON OF FUN along the way!

So, if this fits your idea of a teacher, please set up a no-risk intro pack of lessons. If you're not satisfied, or I'm not your cup of tea, TakeLessons offers a refund for your remaining lessons.

Online Drum Teacher

I am a Berklee College of Music Alumni and have years of experience teaching. I started teaching in France, and then taught some classes in Boston. Spent 4 years studying with some of the greatest drummers out there from Rock to Jazz, and HipHop drumming ( James Murphy from the blue man group, Marko Djordjevic, and Omar Hakim), after spending another 4 years studying Jazz in Paris. I have a passion for teaching and transmission. After touring with bands like Lick Neon and playing around the US I felt like I wanted to go back to teaching drums. My teaching is unique, very centered on playing, and less centered on books because to me the best way to learn music is to play by ear and to learn how to listen. I will teach you basics and rudiments, but very quickly I will show you how to use those in a creative and fun way, so that your appetite for learning more keeps growing. I would love to meet you and get you closer to your drum dreams !

About Clement

Teaching means the world to me. Music has been transmitted from generation to generation during the whole history of humanity and to keep music alive, we need people to be fully dedicated to transmitting what they learned to keep music growing, and to empower people to believe in themselves and tha

Easy going and good temperament with my 5 year old.
Mia
Being a first time drum student , I took lessons with Clement and he was so patient and really helped me build the confidence that I needed. Although I'm only playing for a hobby, I feel as if I can now call myself a drummer thank you to the guidance as well as the standard that Clement held me too. Also great hip hop producer!
Florence
After having taken some lessons online with various instructors, it is clear to me that Clément has been my best experience. Learning drums online was never easy but I am very busy so that's my only option, and he made sure that I always understood him clearly, sent me some exercises to practice after classes and always encouraged me and made me believe in myself. Still take lessons to this day and now I have my own band ! Thanks Clem :) !!

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

I would highly recommend Casey."

"I've been taking lessons from Bobby for 6 months. I already play piano.... but drums are very different from piano. I like his teaching technique and his patience. He's very understanding, his lessons have lots of variety and are fun. He takes the time to get to know his students, so he understands what each student wants to achieve from their lessons. I'm learning a lot from him...two thumbs UP."

Some form of drumming tradition exists in nearly every culture around the world, meaning just about everyone has the chance to enjoy some of the surprising health benefits of drumming.
