Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over fifteen years and teaching for about 12. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels (lessons at my studio will be on electronic kit).

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is wh

Private Drum Teacher

I started studying the Drums when I was a teenager. I wanted to learn in order to improve my rhythm and timing on the guitar but I fell in love with the drums and continued private lessons and studied on my own so that I could create and record my own material. I started teaching in 2009 and have worked with over 100 students. Some of my favorite drummers are Chad Smith from RHCP's, Dave Grohl from Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Taylor from Queen, and many many more.
There is not just one book that will give you everything you need so I teach from a number of books by different companies like Alfred, KJOS, Hal Leonard, Railroad media, song books, to individual pieces from music notes. I also create, print, and email custom lessons created on a program in my Mac.
I use Pearl drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Roland electronic set, Sabian pad, LP cow bell and bongos, Vick Firth sticks, Tama Iron cobra double bass pedal, Evens and Remo heads.

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from tak

Charlie S.
Christian was very careful as I knew nothing about music. He explained the guitar’s basic function in language that I can understand. I am more enthusiastic about playing than I thought possible.
Braylon C.
A great instructor. Very patient with my son who has never touched a piano before. Very knowledgeable about all types of music and different instruments. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for lessons.
Emmett S.
My son Emmett is always excited to spend time with Christian! Each lesson is well organized and they cover a lot of material focusing both on skills and fun items. Technology part of things can be challenging but Christian each weeks puts the time in to make the experience better for all of us. We are having a wonderful time and learning a lot.

Instruction also includes how to play correctly so as not to develop negative playing habits. In the case that you have developed negative playing habits, how to correct them.

Emphasis is also placed on proper warm up techniques, stretching exercises, holding the sticks correctly, posture, plus drum kit "throne" seat placement, and correct stance, if playing concert snare or percussion. Independence is also developed through simple easy to grasp exercises. In addition, drum exercises are individually tailored to the particular needs of each student.

Chuck has also developed a special ear training method utilizing CD and MP3 technology. This method reduces the amount of time it normally takes to develop good listening skills. These listening skills decrease the time that it takes to learn new songs, and learn how to interact with other musicians.

This is Chuck Reichel the drum instructor at Sound Picture Recording. I've been doing studio recording sessions and also playing live performances covering most styles of music for many years. I myself have studied drums in the past under several top notch drummers. I enjoy seeing my students exc

Chuck is a very talented and experienced teacher, he makes the classes relax , entretained and fun. He is very insightful and detects my kid strength and weakness. I have seen my kid improving in his drum skill that eventually would take him to the next level.

Chuck is a fantastic teacher! He is really patient but also pushes me to go beyond what I think I can do. He is very systematic and fundamental, which has given me a great foundation in my rhythm skills.

Nancy
My son has a great student–teacher relationship. It takes the right teacher to help enjoy learning while challenging him to improve with each lesson and not to short any song. Steve's online sound experience has really impressed us.
Dale Smith
I played an organ years ago ( I am 70 years old) and lost a lot of skills. I now have a digital piano, but I was not satisfied with my progress.

So I signed up for lessons with Steve. I took piano lessons from Steve for about 18 months. I moved about an hour away, so it was not practical to continue with him.

The lessons from Steve were exactly what I was looking for. He figured out my skill level and set up a plan for me. He stressed the fundamentals while teaching a song at the same time. Being able to play a song, even a simple one, was a great reward. Then we progressed to develop more skills and more interesting songs.

Steve is patient, attentive and a good coach. He genuinely loves teaching and finds that “spark” in to build on. I saw this many times as I would listen to him teaching the student before me.

Steve is a great teacher and I strongly recommend him.
Nicole
Steve is a great instructor and took the time to work through any challenges and helped our son grow as a drummer. He has a great virtual setup that makes it sound you are in the studio with him.

Mike is very approachable and makes learning easy. I tried to learn the ukulele on my own and it was overwhelming and frustrating. He is very knowledgeable and is experienced in a variety of music, including drums. In every lesson, my skills and confidence improve! Mike is the best!

"Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son.
