Moeller, Groove, Creativity in problems solving, the essentials ;)

I enjoy trying to make a connection on your level. We all come from different backgrounds but teaching and learning music is just like learning a language.

Interested in creating a natural feel and sound on whatever instrument you play? Improving your technique? 4 mallet marimba? Drumset?

For the better part of my adult life I have been performing and teaching classical contemporary music. Although I am well versed in the traditional repertoire of classical percussion (orchestral and contemporary chamber music/solo), my heart is first and foremost a performer. If you are looking to become creative musician who enjoys a challenge and likes to find creative solutions to skill-building, let me know! I'm sure I can help and would love to work with you!

I'm Lucas, a professional drummer and educator in Chicago. I'm passionate about playing music and am so grateful that I get to make a living doing what I love. I played drum set with Blue Man Group (up until they stopped doing shows due to the pandemic), I regularly perform at the top jazz clubs in Chicago, and I've toured the country with indie bands. I'm also a high school percussion ensemble director and college drum set teacher, so I have a broad range of experiences to pull from as I craft a customized plan to help you meet your drumming goals.

I started playing the drums in my hometown of Tucson, AZ at 9 years old, following in my mom’s footsteps, who played drums at my church. It wasn’t long before I started playing in punk bands, jazz groups, and youth orchestras. I moved to the Midwest to study music at Northern Illinois University, and eventually went on to earn a master's degree at DePaul University. The Chicago music scene has provided me countless opportunities to play

My high school son has taken lessons from Lucas Gillan for the past three years and has grown musically under his instruction. Lucas brings much expertise and motivation to each lesson, I highly recommend Lucas for percussion lessons!
Megan
Lucas rocks! He was my daughters teacher for an amazing 5 years. She learned so much from him. From rock, jazz, tenor drum in high school marching band, to snare drum in a famous Chicago bagpipe band. He’s very patient and very gifted. We miss having him in our home, felt like a family member.

As I have taught many students on many different instruments, my focus has been on providing students with a firm foundation, including proper posture, breathing, embouchure, technique, and pitch/rhythm literacy. Beyond a traditionally classical approach, I believe strongly in listening to my students to realize what they desire to learn. Many students are primarily interested in learning the jazz style, including improvisation, which includes a great deal of listening, transcribing, and practicing of patterns/riffs.

Online Drum Teacher

Teaching students how to play with bands and read music are both important. I've played over 27 years and taught over 17 of those years. Grooves, coordination, reading and soloing are all aspects of what I teach from mostly my own books. I combine having fun with the commitment of practicing into a well rounded learning experience. I have recitals for students to show off their talents 1-2 times yearly. I'm versatile in teaching new drummers or advanced students. I look forward to our lessons.

About Danny

I've played drums about 30 years and taught lessons about 20 of those years. Each student is different and I've evolved my lessons to accommodate teaching each student. My background consists of all styles of Drumset, marching band, rock bands, soloing and Troopers drum corps. Also playing in jazz,

Mr Piper is the best instructor ever!! Not only is he good at what he does, his passion for what he does sets him apart! I'm so glad that he teaches my 6 year old son on a level that he can relate to, AND that challenges him simultaneously. Looking forward to having him work with my daughter who is also a percussionist!

She has years of professional experience teaching and playing across a wide range of drum styles. In terms of her teaching style, she is very patient and uses a methodology that is clear and EFFECTIVE. If you are a beginner or advanced drummer, I HIGHLY recommend Alexa. You will not be disappointed. She will teach you the fundamentals and advanced rhythms; you will be playing popular beats in no time; you will have FUN practicing and playing because Alexa's approach is positive and tailored to what you want to learn. She is a great teacher, a good communicator, makes learning drumming FUN and most importantly, gets RESULTS."

"David is a world-class musician with the rare ability to communicate the most complex musical ideas clearly and simply to students of all ages. Within the first hour of the first lesson, David helped our son, then age 12, identify technical issues that were causing him problems and stripped away bad habits that were holding him back. With David's professional guidance in both drums and percussion, our son's progress has been remarkable. In our son's own words: “David is creative with a good sense of humor, which always makes lessons fun.” We cannot recommend him more highly."
