Private Drum Teacher

I am very student focused and driven. I want to help my student realize their full potential with playing drums.
I can introduce my student to a basic understanding of music theory and hard rock/metal drumming is my main focus - however I am versed in other music genres as well, to give my student the most options to work with.
Relaxed, fun, and detail oriented are all words I would use to describe myself.
So, if you are looking for a drum teacher that can cover: rudiments, stick control, basic tempo/time understanding, metronome familiarity, tuning of a kit, drum maintenance, and much more, look no further!

About Nicholas

I understand that learning something new can be very daunting. I know that in particular, because I am still new to teaching! We can both learn together. I want to make it my goal, to help you be a better musician, performer, and most obviously: a better drummer. I care deeply about making sure my

Online Drum Teacher

I've been teaching Drums since 2004 and recently started back January 2013. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play all rudiments and as time goes on you'll be able to play in bands and in JH and HS bands. I typically use the Haskell Harr, and now include Alfred's Drum Method book for Snare; Tommy Igo for drum-set. His posters from Vic Firth are great resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

For 9 years I’ve been showing people of all ages how they can successfully play the drums. My method is really simple and moves you forward a little at a time. You will be amazed at how quickly you are able to play you’re first real drum beat.

I’m also going to be able to advise you on the do’s and don’t of buying equipment. There’s a million products out there and it can be really confusing. I’d love to tell you how to get what you need (and no more!).

Great drum teacher!

Adam is a very skilled drummer and a patient teacher. My son has been taking lessons for awhile now and his face still lights up in awe when Adam plays. My son came to Adam as a beginner and I have seen continual improvement after each lesson. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a drum teacher.

Adam is a wonderful guitar teacher!

Adam is a great at teacher! He is so patient with me and helps me to progress at my own pace without feeling like I am lagging behind. He also encourages me when I feel like I am not doing well and he helps me to hone in on specific skills that I need to practice further. Best of all, his explanations are clear and the goals he sets for me are attainable with practice outside of class. I highly recommend him.

Online Drum Teacher

I've been teaching contemporary drum set in Orange County for over a decade, and many of my students have gone on to not only play and read notated drum set music with ease, but have continued their studies at arts high-schools and music colleges, with several of them continuing on to the professional world. I use an award winning curriculum used at many music academies and conservatories, and have received accolades for my ability to retain many students for many years. Within the first few lessons, a new student will be able to understand the basics of rhythm and snare drum notation, play a plethora of relatable and cool sounding grooves, and build a foundation that will serve the student for a life time.

Mike has designed a curriculum that is engaging, challenging, and fun. His curriculum and teaching style are also highly adaptable, whether you want to learn "by the book" and learn strict technique and theory, or if you want to purely have fun and learn a few songs. Either way, his lessons are fun, and your drumming will definitely improve with him as your guide.

Mr. Michael is so super awesome with our 8 year old. At first we were nervous but Michael is extremely engaging and made us and our son comfortable. He knew when to allow our son to have fun but also somehow was able to reel him in and make him get to work. We will continue our subscription with Michael for sure thank you!

"Noam is an excellent drum tutor!

He is so knowledgeable about the drums and passionate about sharing that knowledge. His lessons are well structured to make the most of the time available to practice existing skills and learn new techniques, as well as being fun!

He takes the time to really focus on your existing technique in order to iron out any bad habits and he breaks down new techniques in a simple and easy to learn manner.

Highly recommended!"

"Josh is the absolute most attentive music teacher any of my kids have ever had. He spoke with my son in a manner that was welcoming, understandable and patient! No temperament at all. He praised at the right times to encourage my son and quickly corrected issues. The lesson continued without breaks for the whole hour plus, but seemed like 15 minutes. I was incredibly impressed and also had a very entertaining time as I learned about drums in the process. Also, my son has ADHD. I thought my son would have trouble focusing. But with Josh's innate ability to work with him, the ADHD never was an issue. I would totally recommend Josh to anyone wanting to learn drums. Absolutely great session. Also, getting a sampling of his drumming skills was so very cool to see."

"Mike is the best teacher!

My son has been taking drum lessons from Mike for about 6 years consistently. Mike is an amazing instructor and all around great person. My son has learned so much from Mike, enjoys going to his lessons every week(the ONLY activity that he has done that there is NO complaining about going to lessons, only enthusiasm). He has grown leaps and bounds with his level of drumming, all due to Mike. Mike's studio is high tech, his teaching ability and knowledge of all kinds of genres of music and general positive encouragement and attitude make Mike the best drum instructor. He is a great role model for my son, as well. You can't go wrong with Mike!"

"We had a wonderful experience with Dan as my son's drum instructor. My son started at a fairly young age (6) and was interested in playing more what he heard on the radio, anywhere from Taylor Swift to Metallica. Dan was extremely patient in developing his lessons with my son by incorporating these types of songs in his lesson and keeping my son's interest up throughout the 30 minute lesson/"jam session." I'd highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in learning drum skills like those of Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, and other rock and roll legends."

Drumming With Your Weak Hand: 3 Helpful Tips

If you're like most drummers, you have one hand that doesn't always like to cooperate. And for some, the frustration that ensues makes it much easier to just ignore the problem and favor the dominant hand. Over time, while the stronger hand gets better control and technique, the weaker hand just gets... well, weaker and weaker. But just like switch hitters are invaluable players on a baseball team, learning how to build strength in your weaker hand can make you a much more efficient drummer. …
