Private Percussion Teacher

I have a lot of experience playing all kinds of percussion! I've been doing it since I was in middle school, and have gotten a degree in Percussion Performance.

I've always played because I genuinely enjoy it, and I'd like to help people who are trying to get better for auditions, or just want to learn a piece.

These are your lessons, so we'll try to hit whatever your goal is. If you want to defer to me, then I'll start you off with basics like refining your technique, and making sure we can keep tempos steady - things that will apply to everything you play.

About Cameron

Hey I'm Cameron, I'll try to cater lessons to your goals and have fun in the process. I love sharing my knowledge, musical experience, and love for music! High energy and engaging!

Private Percussion Teacher

Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.

About Jeremiah

Tom is such an amazing instructor! He is incredibly passionate about percussion and it comes through in his teaching style. He is patient and takes the time to makes sure to cover the fundamentals as applied to learning a song. I look forward to our lesson every week!
Joseph P
Taking drum lessons with Thomas online has been so rewarding. I finally dusted off my old drums and went on a search to find a great teacher and I found him. I'm not looking to become the next Neil Peart or anything. Just want to have fun and learn. He's very easy to talk to and helps me grasp musical concepts in a really digestible way. He has me working on exercises and my durability on the drum set has improved worlds beyond where I thought I could ever be. I really love his work with Minor Characters, a Chicago band he was in. I'm an older guy but I was motivated by Thomas to start jamming in the garage with some friends of mine who play guitar and bass We have about 10 songs we play each week and Thomas helps me work through each one and every week I get better. Take lessons with this guy. He'll change your life!
Scott
Thomas is such a good teacher. He's patient with me and is so incredible about breaking down a music for me and helping me understand what I'm playing. I've become a better drummer two times over after working with him for a few months. He's very kind, too, and very flexible with my schedule! Can't recommend him enough.

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."
