Private Drum Teacher

I teach various styles of music including, jazz, fusion, funk,Afro-Cuban , neo-soul and rock. I teach rudiments and classical drum technique utilizing various method books in order to facilitate proper technique, coordination ,chart reading, and overall musicianship. Improvisation is key to communication on the band stand . I coach students on how to practice efficiently and effectively in order to be able to play music with others. Lessons are geared to students’ goals and learning styles.

Tom is a great instructor! Cam is learning so much and making great progress on the drums!
Cheryl I.
This is our first Drum instructor and we are thrilled with Thomas. He is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about teaching. His approach is positive in nature, meeting the student where they are at, takes their interest as the lead, and starts teaching there. My 11 year old son really likes him too! We go to our 4th lesson this afternoon.
Paul
These lessons were great. Regarding drums, I was an absolute beginner, and Tommy's lessons turned out to be an excellent jump-start. I used to play keyboards and guitars before, and I enjoy picking up by ear rather than reading notation, so I really liked informal and 'non-notational' way the lessons went. There was no hard notation drill, and yet Tommy had covered most rudiments, basic techniques, and patterns needed to rock in about 10 lessons. I'd recommend this for anyone who doesn't know how to hold sticks but want to get introduced into rock drumming.

I strongly recommend Christian Johnson for any type of percussion teaching."

"David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!"
