Accepting beginners.

Serving students of Humboldt County and Online.

I am accepting students of all levels, ages, and instruments. No experienced required. I teach rudimental percussion including quads/tenors and snare drum as well as many world percussion instruments such as Tabla, Atsimevu, Kanjira, Frame Drum, and Riqq. I also teach an extracted language of south and north Indian drumming which includes exercises and ideas that will broaden the rhythmic palette of any instrumentalist. In addition to serving any instrument through a conceptual mind expansion, I teach a universal hand drumming technique that can be imposed on any percussion instrument.

My teaching style is rooted in a traditional and flexible approach designed to serve the needs and goals of my students. From that, I wish to have a fun and relaxed environment for my students to learn. My approach is positively-minded and geared towards developing your own unique voice.

I have been teaching for over 18 years and

I am a professor of percussion at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
I can teach all styles but prefer jazz. I think the most important thing to learn is keeping good time and staying in the pocket. I have two books published: "The Art of Drumming" and "Deeper Into The Art of Drumming" endorsed by Elvin Jones, Jack DeJohnette, and Roy Haynes. The object of the lesson is to get you out there playing gigs and earning money. Go to kaufmansartofdrumming.com to get more information.

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

I have been performing drums for over 20 years and I have 15 years experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. Within the first few lessons your will be able to play basic songs and take fills and in short time you will be able to play syncopated grooves from all genres of music, make up your own grooves and fills and play essential rudiments. I have written two instructional books which I use along with other classic drum education material like Ted Reed's "Syncopation" and "Advanced Funk Studies" and "Stick Control". I love helping new students discover their talents and I can't wait to meet you!

"Fantastic!!!

My son started taking trumpet lessons with Jesse last summer, but soon confessed that he really didn't like the instrument. He asked if he could try drums. I suggested that he do that and perhaps try some guitar or keyboards also. He has stuck with drums and loves it, but also asked Jesses to help him with a vocal song he'd like to perform for his school's talent show this spring. I LOVE the fact that Jesse can help him try out so many different aspects of musicianship in his fabulous in-house studio! The first "recital"/jam session was so amazing that my 9 year old daughter asked if she could also take lessons with Jesse. Now both of my kiddos are singing, Jamming and keyboarding together, and it is so much fun.
I hated piano lessons as a kid. I was always in trouble for not practicing enough, but everything the teacher gave me to work on was so unappealing. I wanted a different music experience for my kids. I have found it with Jesse. He is so talented and inspiring. He listens to his students and gently moves them to accomplish amazing results. With his back help, even beginning students can feel like they are part of a band and really making music.
I feel so fortunate to have found Jesse and for my kids to have such a positive and well rounded musical introduction. I have even decided to take guitar lessons for myself now!
My husband had similar negative music experience as I did as a child and was very negative about my efforts to have our kids take music lessons at all until he came to the first recital/jam session at Jesse's studio. He loved it and could completely appreciate how much fun the kids were having learning how to play music in a more modern and flexible environment."

Murray does a great job of encouraging the student while he is teaching. He takes the time needed to explain the very basics before moving onto the more difficult concepts.
