My drum lessons will be catered to creating a well rounded musician whether they decide to pursue learning drums for fun or if they decide to pursue a career as a musician. My real world experience lends itself to teaching more than just a rote set of techniques. I studied privately and then attended Berklee School Of Music for a year before embarking further on my professional career. I've been playing and studying since the age of 10 and have years of experience playing professionally. I've been on a major label and toured with Powerman 5000, and have been a performing drummer in the Blue Man Group show in Las Vegas for over 20 years.

Stressing reading, rudiments and proper technique will be balanced by learning to play beats, fills, songs and understanding the role of the drummer in a given band or musical situation.

I prefer the lessons to be driven by the students interests so I'm open to creating lesson plans around what they want to learn in order to become the player they ...

Private Drum Teacher

Drums were my first real hobby, and a great confidence-builder when I was growing up. I've spent many hours playing drums, and it's become a very rewarding part of my life. I specialize in teaching the techniques of playing the drum set, and I'd love to show you how to do it. So, sign up! I promise it'll be fun. You won't regret it.

Mark is an American composer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer.

I started teaching private music lessons my senior year of high school, in 2006. Since then I've taught over 100 different students of all ages from 3 years old to 78 years old. While still living in Ohio, I was the one and only official guitar teacher for Guitar Center Youngstown through the duration of 2008-2009. In late 2009, after moving to Los Angeles, I continued to teach privately and with several music schools all around the city. I currently live in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of LA with my wife and two little kids.

"Mattia is an extremely patient and cheerful teacher, an excellent instructor for a first time student. My child had no previous musical experience, and Mattia worked with him to learn the basics, even when he forgot his drum pad at his other parent's home. Mattia was flexible with the instruction time, and you can tell that he simply enjoys the subject and sharing his knowledge with others. Happily recommend!"

"Within the first lesson it was obvious how much Scott is passionate about playing music and helping other musicians succeed. What I really liked about Scott was that he didn't beat around the bush when it came to finding areas that I could improve upon, but in the same respect, he made sure he celebrated the successes and progress being made. That's the kind of teacher that can motivate someone to improve and feel fulfilled after the hard work being put into a craft. I unfortunately had to stop taking lessons due to outside circumstances and if I got the opportunity I would take more lessons with Scott."
