Private Drum Teacher

I have over 10 years experience teaching drums to all different ages. I received the “Outstanding Youth Advocate” award from Berklee College of Music's Community Affairs Dept. in 2014 for teaching at the Boys&Girls Club in Allston, MA. I perform a lot around the northeast U.S., spanning a diverse spectrum of styles.

If desired, I can teach out of several books - including Garwood Whaley - Musical Studies for Intermediate Snare Drummer, Charley Wilcoxon - The All-American Drummer: 150 Rudimental Solos, Charles Dowd - Funky Primer for the Rock Drummer, and Tommy Igoe - Groove Essentials 1.0+2.0

Or I can teach without any books as I have a wealth of knowledge in me!

I teach rudiments, hand+foot techniques, coordination exercises, grooves - stemming from rock to funk to jazz, bossa nova, samba, west african, and much more.

My son enjoyed the lesson and wanted to practice right away.
John
Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.
Chris
Josh is an awesome teacher. He is patient and supportive and always comes up with ways to connect me to the concept he’s teaching. I asked to learn drums “the right way” so we spend a ton of time on fundamental exercises that i suspect are boring for him but he never shows it. He is always upbeat and positive and I enjoy our lessons a lot. Could not recommend him more highly.

I've been performing and recording drums for over 20 years and seek to share the experience I have gained in an accessible and fun way.

About Alex

Hi, there! My name is Alex and I can't wait to teach you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2004 and have loved helping my students get comfortable behind the drums, understand rhythm, and start performing. I went to Webster University and the Los Angeles College of Music and earned a degree

Matthew
I've been fortunate enough to know Alex for a while. I have been in a few bands in my day (not as a drummer) and, I must say, Alex is my favorite drummer I've worked with. He has also helped me along with developing skills with a drum kit both, in person and online, and I'm better for it. Now, still working at it, I'm doing my own drum work for original tunes and really enjoying the process. I keep going back to Alex for help, especially footwork. I must also say, $25/30 minutes and $45/hour is a STEAL to work with Alex.

Excellent experienced! Highly skilled and prepared!

I work on the fundamentals like drums placement and body posture, technique, understanding of rhythm, role of the instrument in a band and playing simple grooves with the right sound and feel which is the foundation of becoming a demanding drummer in the industry. For me it is very important that the student sounds right on the instrument, depending on the styles of music he/she performs whether that’s Pop, Rock or Jazz.
My approach to every student is different as every student's learning abilities and goals are different. I work on a plan with the student and progress step by step according to his/her goals. A big part of my teaching philosophy is practicing with songs and playing with bass loops which is a great way to lock with a bass player and build your groove.

"Evan is a terrific drum teacher for our two sons. My youngest is a beginner; Evan has structured lessons for him but definitely encourages creativity. My oldest is in a band at school and Evan is great at reinforcing the style of music that he plays at school (mostly jazz) and teaching other styles that my son enjoys playing (mostly rock). He is organized, dependable, and easy going. He is flexible when we have conflicts. Most importantly, not only does he have great skill but he has a great demeanor for teaching: he is kind, encouraging, and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommend him!"
