Dan taught me to play dozens of genres over a decade of study, ranging from jazz and Latin standards to 9-min long progressive metal epics, and that one World Tour orchestral score with the tempo modulation. I've played at drop-in jazz jams and rock gigs thanks to Dan's training. Highly recommend.

Stephanie
We had a wonderful experience with Dan as my son's drum instructor. My son started at a fairly young age (6) and was interested in playing more what he heard on the radio, anywhere from Taylor Swift to Metallica. Dan was extremely patient in developing his lessons with my son by incorporating these types of songs in his lesson and keeping my son's interest up throughout the 30 minute lesson/"jam session." I'd highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in learning drum skills like those of Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, and other rock and roll legends.

Private Drum Teacher

I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

About Matt

I am passionate instructor who is fueled by seeing success in others. No other feeling is more fulfilling then seeing the growth of another human. I have been teaching private lessons in my own studio for about 8 years now. I've taught 7 marching bands and currently writing music for some with an

About Brian

The only thing I've ever wanted to do was play drums. My parents bought me my first drum set at age 6. I've spent my whole life learning how to be good at what I love. I still study and practice almost every day, but now I pass my knowledge on to others. If you want to see one of my early students

Brian taught drums to me for probably four or five years, and it was seriously great. I always looked forward to having lessons with him because I knew I'd learn a lot and most importantly it would be fun. I don't take lessons anymore but I still think about many of the things he taught me when I sit down to practice. He definitely helped shape me into the drummer I am today and I'm proud to say he taught me.

Brian was my son’s first drum teacher. He was amazing! Ethan really learned the basics of how to play and enjoy the drums. We wish Brian lived closer so we could continue to have him as a teacher.

Brian Cramer thought our youngest son for I believe about 5 years. It was a great experience for our child. He loved his lessons and was always looking forward to his time with Brian. Noah became an excellent drummer and to this day can sit at his drum set and play really well. Brian was enthusiastic, fun and dedicated teacher. We were lucky to a found them at a time when our child was eager to learn. Thanks Brian!

Online Drum Teacher

I teach drum set and marching percussion, teaching for four years. I teach both tenor and snare drum for marching.

Lessons are tailored to the individual student and their experience, goals, and materials available. Having the respective instrument at the teaching location is preferred, but the minimum materials required are drumsticks, a drum pad, and a stand for the drum pad.

Drum set students should expect to learn the basics of technique and drum set-up. From there, lessons are tailored to the individual student, specifically what genres they are interested in. For beginners, I use "The Best Beginner Drum Book" by Drumeo.

Marching percussion students learn a heavier emphasis on technique, constantly being implemented into lessons. Students learn a variety of musical pieces and see technical and musical growth through each piece.

About Kevin

I've been involved in music since fifth grade loved it since! As a performer, I was heavily involved in my high school's music program being involved in: the advanced jazz band (drum set), advanced choir (baritone), musical pit (drum set/auxiliary percussion), show band (vibraphone/tenor drums), an

Online Drum Teacher

I break teaching down to an easy-to-understand language by demonstrating techniques, rudiments, drum set styles, and playing along with music within the drum lesson. I've been drumming for over 10 years, and I have been teaching for 4 years. I combine knowledge of contemporary drumming techniques along with applications handed down through other drummers for different learning experiences for students. Whether chosen as a hobby or a possible career route, having an experienced drum teacher is key.

"Marc is a great teacher. Classes are always very friendly and productive. In my case, each class begins with a review of progress/practice, and ends with a meaningful and personalized homework. He is also very flexible, sometimes I had to move my classes around and he's always super responsive and understanding. I knew nothing about drums, and I am happy I decided to begin my journey to learn how to play them, with Marc as a mentor!"
