Structured, but not too structured - makes my progress happen very quickly. Always fun!

Michael is a patient and encouraging teacher. His lessons are energetic and we always get a lot done. You can tell, too, that he is knowledgeable and passionate about the material. He can apply both technical skill and professional experience to his lessons, while also adapting to the student and allowing them to advance at their own pace. He motivates with praise but will tell you when something needs work/practice. I leave every lesson excited to continue learning and improving. I recommend lessons with Michael!

Today was my first lesson with Aaron. He was professional and works with a planned curriculum that we then tailored to fit my particular needs. His attention to the basics (I'm a beginner) with plans for where to work on improvements made me feel at ease and confident that we will be able to work together long term to reach my goals, and likely exceed them.

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!

Online Drum Teacher

I have been teaching drum for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

"Wow! For someone who was completely new to drums and understanding rhythm , Ross was absolutely perfect for what I needed. His attention to detail shows just how knowledgable he is of his craft, and makes hard matters easy to understand! (even a 6 year old could understand him)

His professionalism strives even through online classes, because he's so keen on making sure you understand the context.

Would HIGHLY recommend!"

"We would like to thank John for becoming our all time favorite drum teacher. In just 7 lesson John managed to not only give our daughter the support and teach the techniques she needed for her upcoming concert, but also boost her self-confidence tremendously. Our daughter is a quite girl and as the only percussionist in the school band, she needed and needs to learn from someone with John's experience at teaching children.
Thank you, John. We can't wait to take more lessons soon!!!"
