Private Drum Teacher

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 am available for SKYPE lessons. 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

Private Drum Teacher

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

You've got to walk before you can run, so I focus on the basics. But, the basics can be a lot of fun! Especially once we start to apply them to your favorite songs, and being creative with them - that's kind of what it's all about!

About Mike

Learning to play an instrument is a mixture of a lot of fun, and a lot of hard work. My strength is finding what will inspire my students to WANT to put in those difficult hours of practice, and then showing them how to apply what they have learned in a creative way, so that they experience the fu

Amazing, patient really informative instructor and just a great guy. Highly recommend.
Vince
Mike was really the best instructor I could have asked for. Knowledgeable, patient, and best of all, chill when he needed to be. I was just picking up the drums for a high school band I was in at the time, and he was more than willing to help me learn whatever dumb song me or my band had decided sounded cool at the time. At the same time, he showed me a lot of really excellent practice techniques, directed me to some solid literature for different rhythms to work on, and would sit with me through a whole hour of my relentless mistakes like it was nothing. More than a good instructor, he's a really cool guy! He never missed a beat!
Fred
Mike brings it all to the lesson...musicianship,
decades of experience, versatility and creativity.

As an instructor, I've churned out over 400 students over my 12 year teaching career. Many of my students tour with their own bands and or perform in their high school marching and jazz band. I work from industry standard material and include my own lesson strategy that's proved trident true over the course of my teaching career.

I've performed on stage and recordings with many well known drummers. A few to name, are Tommy Larkin's, Ed Shemanski and Winston Watson. I proficient teaching any style and have applied all styles into my repertoire while performing and recording. I teach drummers how to become a musician, not just a drummer. ...

Aidan did a wonderful job helping my son learn percussion- several instruments. He is patient and empathetic, and great with even young kids. I appreciate that he tries to let the kids do things that are fun for them while still teaching the basics.

"Ray R. is what I would call a "Performance Teacher" to me. I am a guitarist and play with him to improve everything from rhythm to live performance skills. 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."

Not only does he have great chops, but a really positive attitude and very creative sensibilities. He has a very solid understanding of time and rhythm, and his ability to articulate what he is doing makes jamming not only fun and rewarding, but I also learn something new from him every time.

Besides being one of Long Islands best percussionist, he happens to be the most warmest, patient, personable, and fun loving soul I have encountered.
