Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

Matt is an amazing instructor. I highly recommend him.

Private Drum Teacher

I believe that drumming is a universal practice for joy, health, communication and discipline available for anybody...any age...any brain...any body.

I enjoy helping other people find the groove within them, strive to improve, and adapt their drumming regimen to make "the work" of drum practice feel more like the "play" of sport and meditation ... fun, free, and refreshing

Online Drum Teacher

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Shiv is a great teacher, he is practical, uses songs to get you started and keep you interested in learning drums. He is young and has been learning music from very young age. It is relief for me when i go to drums classes as it clears my mind away from daily grind.
Ekta
My son took drum lessons from Shiv for a short time. Shiv really connected with my son and sparked an interest by starting with my son’s favorite songs. We could not continue due to conflict of timings.
Anyil
Shiv has been teaching our son since he was 6yrs old and although he’s young, he’s great with connecting with the students and explaining things to help you understand. My son really enjoys his lessons & we highly recommend Shiv. He has a passion for music & tracing and he’s really good at it.

Online Drum Teacher

Experienced teacher with 20 years of playing under my belt.

I teach with an encouraging, positive mentality that will foster fun and a love for the drums! For beginners, I start from the ground up with proper technique, rudiments, musicality, all while ensuring room for creativity and curiosity.

After that, and for drummers with a little more experience, you'll learn to:
-Use rudiments in a fun and practical way on the kit
-Build your drum vocabulary
-Play musically and with purpose
-Read and write music
-Write fast charts for gigging

I teach out of my music studio in my home, a roomy and professional space with a beautiful kit to play on.

I have tons of experience with young students!

About Cassie

I am a professional drummer and percussionist with a healthy live gigging and teaching portfolio. I have 20 years of experience under my belt. Drum students can expect to improve week to week on the kit. I teach students the foundations of drumming while fostering their unique style and creativity

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!
Cassidy
I am a super beginner at drums, and Cassie was always so patient with me and helped me take some amazing leaps in my progress in just a few sessions! She’s super flexible and was always willing to teach me whatever beats/skills I was interested in learning more about. Not to mention- she is such a talented drummer herself, so she is just a wealth of knowledge and inspiring as heck. Absolutely awesome instructor!

"Hi, I just started taking lessons and I absolutely love it! I have an excellent teacher that takes his time to show me the right techniques and fundamentals to achieve the goal of playing professional. He has great expertise and pushes me to be the best. He makes sure I understand why I need to do certain things such as rudiments and learning to read notes. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. He's always full of energy and ready to teach me so I can go far in drumming. If your looking for a fun cool teacher full of energy who loves teaching the art of drumming Mr. Rufus is your guy!
