Private Drum Teacher

Drummer with nearly 20 years experience playing in rock bands as well as in worship settings. Lessons begin with a focus on fundamentals of drumming (drum set) but can expand into what the student specifically wants to learn. We will also focus on the role of the drummer within a musical group and learn how to navigate those intricacies. Beginner and intermediate students preferred but all ages are welcome, its never too late to learn how to drum!

About Joel

Personally, my favorite style of music to play is rock/alternative but I also favor acoust

Joel has been great so far! We’ve just started with him, but he is extremely friendly and kind. He’s very encouraging and positive about growing our son’s skills. Would definitely recommend him, especially for children. He’s really good with kids.
Tracy S.
I’ve not had lessons from Joel, but I have attended several events in which he was drumming. One of THE best drummers I have ever heard! Whether you’re just starting out or have been playing for a while I have no doubt Joel will help you improve your drumming skill.

I found Scott’s expertise and approach to teaching music recording to be most impressive! He is highly skilled at determining the level necessary to explain the recording process and consistently thorough in making sure that every step is clearly understood before moving on to the next. I learned a lot from Scott in a short amount of time and would highly recommend him.

Scott is a very talented producer and drummer and is very patient and easy to work with. i highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn Ableton and advance their engineering/ production skills!

I am brand new to music production and Scott broke everything down very easily for me. He also gave me great recommendations on starter kit equipment to purchase that was not too expensive.

"As a piano teacher, I am amazed at the progress my 16 y.o. son has made in one year of lessons with Mike. Mike definitely has a talent for reaching his students in fun and creative ways, and does a great job at teaching to each student as an individual. I've seen him interact with other students, and you can just tell he loves what he does and sincerely cares about his students. My husband has also sat in on a lesson and saw how Mike has a gift as a drummer as well as a teacher. We look forward to the next level he will take our son as a drummer and musician.

I highly recommend him as a teacher to any age student. His curriculum is solid and he keeps it fun and engaging. You won't be disappointed!"

Profile_116578_pi_Ray%20Rojo%20Drummer
"I took lessons from Ray for about 4 months because I wanted to take my drumming skills to the next level. Ray's teaching method is unique and effective. It's simple as that!. After 2 lessons my band mates started noticing better chops, more control on the drum set (as far as dynamics) and tasteful fills. My hand/foot coordination has improved radically thanks to those exercises customized and developed by Ray that target the weak areas. At my first lesson, Ray and I discussed my short but demanding list of concepts that I wanted to work. He was able to understand all my concerns in a heartbeat and put together a teaching plan that covered more than what I was expecting. Needless to say that Ray is a humble person and a great drummer ( I stole a of of licks from him!). The studio is very neat and organized. It has technology and equipment that as a student you can use for free. Another advantage is that Ray's studio has two drum sets so the theory and the actual practice happen in real time. Also, the studio location is very convenience. If you are a drummer looking for effective drum lessons, any style, any level don't hesitate to contact Ray. You won't regret it!. He is an A+ drum instructor."
