About Athan

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself. As someone who started late (began drumming at age 16), and quickly progressed from complete (i.e. terrible) beginner to studying at nationally ranked CSU Northridge's jazz program,

Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner drum students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Start to learn about polyrhythms as well as developing your ears and body to play songs more accurately. Start to spice up your playing with ways that are interesting, but not intrusive.

Advanced
Really push your polyrhythms and add asymmetrical meters to your repertoire to expand your grasp of complex rhythms. Also learn to use dynamics, cymbal work, and fills to effectively communicate and lead a band without words.

About Jesse

*Disclaimer* I'm currently not taking beginner students for bass, drums, piano, and ukulele or children under 10 years old. I highly recommend my studio partner Melissa though. Please check out her profile: https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62 My Background I've been playing with

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Are you ready to improve your skills?

Just had my first lesson with Mattia and he gave me a lot of valuable tips right away. Exercises to practice on my free time every day which I think will provide a solid base for my practice in the future. Looking forward to seeing how far I can go!
Aaron
Mattia is an extremely patient and cheerful teacher, an excellent instructor for a first time student. My child had no previous musical experience, and Mattia worked with him to learn the basics, even when he forgot his drum pad at his other parent's home. Mattia was flexible with the instruction time, and you can tell that he simply enjoys the subject and sharing his knowledge with others. Happily recommend!
David
I had a great first lesson with Mattia and he's an excellent teacher. I'm looking forward to learning more!

Let’s have some fun.

Yes, technique and repetition and practice are critical to mastering any craft, but music is about the muse—the inspiration. We explore what inspires you, invent methods to increase your skill, and lean into your enthusiasm.

Drums, along with the human voice, are the most accessible musical instruments on the planet. Rhythm is the most important part of music, and drums embody rhythm. Whether you're looking for lessons on a trap set or hand drums, my 25 years of experience will illuminate your way.

We’ll play with a variety of genres, find beats that challenge your coordination, and expand your ability to listen and discover your place in any song. Join my circle.

"Mike has been teaching our son Luis for almost 5 years now. He’s now ten and his play is amazing. Equally as importantly as his knowledge and high skill level, he is a patient and kind man who is great with kids. He built a strong relationship with my son and as a result, Luis loves playing drums. He has just the right balance of support and encouragement to get him to learn without feeling like he’s pressured or it’s homework. Passion make perfect!!! I highly recommend Mike as a teacher for students of any age. He Rocks in many ways!"

"Kolja is great! I've taken lessons for various instruments since I was young and never had as much fun as I do in drum lessons. He has a great energy and gives positive, constructive feedback. His years of experience as a drummer and instructor were immediately evident. I felt improvement even after the first week of practice! I appreciated that he took time to understand what I wanted out of drum lessons and how I prefer to learn. I have been wanting to start drumming for years and am so glad that I found Kolja!"
