"Experienced drum teacher of 12 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of rudiments and reading. I specialize in rock, funk, jazz, and world music. I use an assortment of books, mostly hand outs, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more. Let's grab some sticks and rock and roll!"

About Aaron
Berklee College of Music graduate, Aaron M., has been teaching students of all ages for over 12 years.
"I love watching young musicians grow into seasoned players and have had tremendous success with all my students. I believe that learning songs and playing music is a critical element in the learning process of becoming a good drummer/pianist, and musician. This is why I bring a powered PA speaker, mp3 player, and (sometimes) a guitar to my lessons for the student to play along with and learn familiar songs. Over the years I've learned to strike a balance between Reading/Rudiments and Playing/having fun, so as to maintain students interests and growth."

My boys, ages 7 & 5, started piano lessons with Aaron a year ago. He has taught them technique & theory all while using songs they boys love. There are days that the boys are not the most cooperative. Aaron is amazingly patient and persistent in getting the boys to do their lessons. I really appreciate and have learned from this patience when it comes to the nightly practicing. I am pleased that the boys have been working with a male teacher and I think it really helps them relate to the music and the lessons. If you are looking for a patient yet knowledgeable piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Aaron.

Indianapolis, IN

View Full Profile

I approach drum set from a rudimental stand point. I like to start my students off just working on their hands and then over time I incorporate the drum set itself more and more. Usually after about two months of studying with me, the student is on the set for the majority of the lesson.

The styles I specialize in would include mostly rock with some jazz and latin styles as well.

About Alex
Alex was born May 31, 1987. Since both of his parents were band directors, he grew up in a very musically inclined family. When he was 15 years old, during his freshman year of high school, he started studying percussion. A year later he began studying under Chad Kohler and continued to do so until 2009. During spring semester of 2009 he studied briefly under Richard Walker at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). In the fall of that year he then transferred to Butler University for an academic year and studied under Craig Hetrick and Jon Crabiel.

Beginning in 2011 Alex began studying attending University of Indianapolis and is currently studying under Paul Berns as well as Art Reiner. In addition to studying with them he has also went back to continue to study with his mentor Chad Kohler. In the time since Alex gr
aduated high school, he has been continuously presented with teaching opportunities. At the time, though, music was not looking like the best course of action for him. With the aid of Chad Kohler, Alex then began getting more involved with teaching percussion. Alex eventually went on to arranging his own parts for his students, as well as composing original percussion ensemble pieces. Alex is currently pursuing his Master's Degree in Music Technology at IUPUI.

In the time since he has been out of high school, he has taught at a number of schools including the Lynhurst 7th & 8th Grade Center, North Putnam Jr./Sr. High School, Broad Ripple Magnet School for the Arts & Humanities, and Lawrence Central. He has also taught at Arlington High School and Short Ridge High School.

When it comes to teaching music, what is known to be as the “Holy Trinity” comes to mind. While teaching I personally believe that it is important to challenge students just enough so that they are not discouraged and are still able to have fun.

The Holy Trinity plays a big role in this. What it consists of is embracing your students from all angles. This would be from ensembles and private lessons, which in turn then encourage them to practice. Ensemble, private lessons, and practicing are the three main categories that make up the “Holy Trinity.” And in using this, you can also be more involved with your students as well. It is always a good idea be friend your students as well and not just be the “teacher.” There is a great quote that goes like this, “They will never care about how much you know, until they know how much you care.” In which case has been proven to be very true time and time again.

It is important as a teacher to be able to inspire your students and to encourage them. Which is why I think it is important to be a good friend as well to your students. This way a kind of trust is formed and in turn can easily lead to the success of a music program. Also I do believe that it is important to expose students to as many forms of music as possible. This way they are not just stuck in one kind of mind set and if they choose to go into music for their career, then they have many different experiences they can pull and relate from. Plus they will also have some more knowledge of different cultures and music genres that can help not only create better music but also be more overall worldly in their personal life out side of music. Being able to learn about music is very important, and can easily impact a student’s life in many different ways that most subjects just do not have the capability to. This is what I believe about learning music and why I also love to teach it. I want my students to be able to have all the same great experiences I have had and more. Which is why I personally believe so heavily in a good music education.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach to teaching that I use comes across as being pretty laid back, I do expect what some might consider to be a lot out of my students. This is because I want to make sure that my students will be successful as musicians.

While a student is studying with me; they will learn about percussion from multiple angles. They will learn and be able to understand many basic music theory terms and principles. They will also learn how each percussion instrument is tied to one another in technique and how to easily transition from instrument to instrument.

Depending on the age of the student, after about three months of studying with me, the student will know a few major scales, most of the standard American rudiments, and some basic drum set concepts. After 6 months, the student will know all 12 major scales, be familiar with all 40 snare drum rudiments, and know a good portion of basic drum set.

Please keep in mind that results may vary depending on the age of the student and the amount of practicing they do on their own. Results also depend upon whether or not they are practicing correctly, which is something they will also learn how to do with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In-studio lessons in basement with acoustic drum set. Street parking or drive way. Seating available for parents.

Lessons at the High School will be in the band room with their equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I mostly specialize in marching percussion as well as 2 and 4 mallet percussion.

I have been teaching for 40 years and have had many students go on to professional careers in music, and many that didn't. My main philosophy is to impart the joy of music making to my students. I take a student through all phases of drumming and/or percussion performance. I can teach beginners or high school students preparing for college auditions. I tailor what I teach to each student on an individual basis after assessing their needs and what they want.

About Craig
I have been the Assistant Principal Timpanist and Percussionist with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra since 1992. I have also been an Adjunct Professor of Percussion at Butler University since 1995, and have been a frequent Guest Lecturer at IU's Jacob's School of Music. Prior to the ISO I spent many years as a drum set player including playing for Matthew Morrison (Glee), Idina Menzel (Glee, Rent,etc..), Marvin Hamlisch, touring Europe with the American Youth Jazz Band, touring the US with Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, and Jimmy Dorsey. Also played for 4 years in the University of Delaware Jazz Band, Dominic Spera's Jazz Band at Indiana University, playing literally thousands of gigs with Al Cobine, Cathy Morris, Jim Farrelly, weddings, the Jazz Kitchen, Chatterbox, rock bands, etc
I hold a Bachelors degree from the U of Delaware, a Ma
sters from IU, and Performers Certificate from IU, all in percussion performance.
Teaching is a passion of mine, and I want to teach more from my home rather than Butler or IU. I love teaching students of any age and level of playing!

Profile_111635_pi_isaac%20%28me%29
Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

I am a professional, active drummer with a firm grasp on all styles ranging from rock to jazz.

About Isaac
I am Berklee College of Music graduate that studied Contemporary Writing & Production - a skill set that has led me to both play/record and write music for the drums, a variety of percussion, piano, guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, trombone, euphonium, and voice. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY as a professional freelance composer and an active performer with my band.

Having had the opportunity to teach students of a wide range of ages (4-50 y/o), I've seen that everyone learns differently and at their own pace. My goal for each lesson is to hone in on the student's interests and base lesson material off of the music that they want to learn - be it classical, rock, or even video game music! I want there to be application for every thing taught in my lesson, and for the student to be able to relate one musical concept to another.

I
want all of my students to be able to have the feeling of playing music with another person, and at some point in my lessons I like to jam with my students! It's essential that my students understand that what they're learning, be it a song, or a scale, or and idea in music theory will have some sort of application involving another musician. This sort of communication is what keeps music fascinating to me!

I am available to teach any of the instruments mentioned as well as any music theory, writing, or production lessons as well. I hope I can help you meet your musical goals!

· Drum · In studio
Isaac really catered to my needs in our one on one lessons. I went from barely knowing how to hold my sticks, to having a firm grasp on the difference between matched and traditional grip. His command of styles is astounding! Regardless of the genre, Isaac always had a firm grasp on what to play. We leaned jazz songs, rock songs, and blues primarily, but when I looked up his band Oh Malo, I was surprised to see him playing very fluently in an experimental/avant-garde setting!

Isaac always broke down material in an intuitive manner, and found a way to incorporate the fundamentals into whatever material we were working on. I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Isaac is my favorite producer! He has taught me so much about audio engineering and arranging. This past year Isaac produced and arranged my band Visen's debut album. He also wrote the interlude for our record. I couldn't be happier with the work he put into the album. However, beyond being an incredible producer and composer, Isaac is an amazing teacher. He is as patient as he is knowledgable, and he taught me how to concisely record and mix my own vocals.

He is extremely musical
