My approach to teaching drums will have you playing within the first few weeks of lessons. I teach with the focus on getting students ready to play in any sort of ensemble. Jazz, rock, pop, funk and free styles will all be discussed.

Fantastic instructor. Ben started at the basic foundational instruction (including how best to hold the pick) and together we built a custom practice outline that has helped me to achieve my goals.

Private Drum Teacher

I have been performing drums for over 20 years and I have 15 years experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. Within the first few lessons your will be able to play basic songs and take fills and in short time you will be able to play syncopated grooves from all genres of music, make up your own grooves and fills and play essential rudiments. I have written two instructional books which I use along with other classic drum education material like Ted Reed's "Syncopation" and "Advanced Funk Studies" and "Stick Control". I love helping new students discover their talents and I can't wait to meet you!

Chresten is a fun and informative teacher. The pace is a little faster but challenged me to move forward. Patient and takes the time to go over any questions asked. Very thorough. Thank you.

Really nice class on topics I was aware of but not particularly experienced at... Chresten was fast but not too fast....he explained things over and over, aive us time to sample it, and then gave us pieces to practice on!

I’ve always thought music was an important part of life, a necessity, even from a very young age. Great music brings people together, breaks barriers, pushes the envelope, and inspires great ideas. Learning to play an instrument requires patients, ambition, discipline, determination, and a want to learn as much as you can to evolve as a musician and a person. These quality’s transfer into every aspect of life, whether you become a professional musician or you take a different path. I started teaching drums because I want to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained over my years of playing to students who are eager to learn. Most of all I want my students to have fun!

I found Jeremy through his Web site about 7 years ago, and at the old age of 55, decided to pursue a lifelong dream of learning to play the drums. Jeremy patiently worked with me over the initial 5 years of our lesson time together in my home, and I achieved the level of proficiency that allows me to enjoy sitting down to play along with songs that I like, as well as more experimentally with my son and neighbor, both guitarists, during our random "jam" sessions. I took a break during the first part of the Covid pandemic but am now back to my weekly in-home lessons with Jeremy, and we have a new plan to help me continue to improve my playing. Jeremy is patient, attentive to my needs, is able to figure out how to best help me, and overall, he is an incredibly talented and gifted musician. My lessons with him have allowed me to achieve a lifelong goal that has become a core aspect of who I am, and what I love doing with music.
