My 12 year old son has very much enjoyed working with Leo on percussion. He very much looks forward to his instruction time and even after Leo left our area is able to do on-line instruction with him. Leo is patient, professional and flexible. Thanks, Leo, for all you do!

Private Drum Teacher

I have been teaching since 2008 and have a BA in Music. I have played and studied drums as a secondary instrument for quiet sometime. I have had some accomplished drum students. I teach all the basic rudiments and have a strong focus on learning beats by ear. I like to teach my drum students to read and do rolls with a strong concentration on the snare drum.

Teaching music is one of my passions. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. After each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music and have enjoyed their time. Music is a lifelong skill that can always be practiced and

Private Drum Teacher

I have been a drummer for 14 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty. I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

When you take lessons with me you can expect to build a strong foundation in counting rhythms, learn practical beat patterns, improve improvisation, learn to play along with a guitarist and/or bass player (me), and learn a wide array of songs and drum fills to prepare you for any situations you might have as a drummer.

I also will give you my personal number to give you advice on buying gear, additional things to practice, and any questions ...

Private Drum Teacher

I started studying the Drums when I was a teenager. I wanted to learn in order to improve my rhythm and timing on the guitar but I fell in love with the drums and continued private lessons and studied on my own so that I could create and record my own material. I started teaching in 2009 and have worked with over 100 students. Some of my favorite drummers are Chad Smith from RHCP's, Dave Grohl from Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Taylor from Queen, and many many more.
There is not just one book that will give you everything you need so I teach from a number of books by different companies like Alfred, KJOS, Hal Leonard, Railroad media, song books, to individual pieces from music notes. I also create, print, and email custom lessons created on a program in my Mac.
I use Pearl drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Roland electronic set, Sabian pad, LP cow bell and bongos, Vick Firth sticks, Tama Iron cobra double bass pedal, Evens and Remo heads.

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

I enjoyed learning from Christian today. I am 70 years old and did not feel out of place. He made me comfortable and he is very knowledgeable about how to go about teaching. He was very polite and patient with me and was able to go over things and explain professionally in a manner that did not insult my intelligence. He seems dedicated to teaching and does it very well .
I highly recommend this man to anyone that wants to learn how to play the Piano.
Wade J.
Christian has been top-notch in every way I could hope for. His communication prior to and after the lesson has been stellar, taking time to prep me then follow up with thorough, well written tips and details. (It's clear that he values the student's time as much as his own, and seeks to make the experience individualized and worthwhile for those he teaches.) The lesson itself was spot-on, being well balanced in both fun and degree of challenge. Feel very fortunate to have found him!
Cayden
Christian easily connects with my teenage son. He is professional while at the same time relaxed and easy-going. He stresses the importance of learning the basics but there is no high pressure. He strives to teach music that is interesting to my son and that challenges him. He does a great job of explaining things. We are happy we chose Christian as our teacher.

Hello my name is James! I'm a professional musician and teacher from Florida. I've earned my Bachelors of Science in Music in 2017, and have been giving one on one lessons since 2014.
I'm proficient in a variety of style of music on the drum; rock, funk, jazz, hip hop, gospel. My goal is to get you playing new beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.
Best part is, I've got all the instruments you would to need to play at my studio!

"Highly recommend Kevin! Just started drums and did 2 months of lessons with him at his in-home studio. Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!"

Not only is Ray an absolute beast of a musician, he is a wonderful teacher. As many people may know, just because one is a good musician it doesn't necessarily mean you also know how to be an effective teacher. Ray is the best of both worlds! I have improved leagues since I started playing with him some months ago. I COULD NOT recommend his as a teacher enough."

Jesse is an incredible instructor and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I have been taking drum lessons from him for just a few months and have improved incredibly since starting out knowing nothing. Very encouraging, and great at spotting aspects to improve upon.

Also, he puts together band nights with all of his students (across many different instruments) which are incredibly fun, and a great way to get practice with others.
