We had our first saxophone lesson with Benjamin today and it was excellent! He is clearly a master that can assess a student’s skill level and adapt the lesson to suit their needs. He is just what we needed :)

Private Drum Teacher

Clifford Drum School offers exceptional education personalized to each individual student. I've been teaching for over 8 years and work with each student to develop lesson plans based on their interests. Lessons take place in a professional environment where students get to learn drumming fundamentals, reading, music theory as well as learning to play their favorite songs by ear. Finally, students will have the opportunity to perform at student recitals as well as learn about recording technology while recording their own drum covers (student performance examples below!). Lessons are also available at the student's home for a nominal fee.

I was surprised at how easy it was to connect with Aaron. His diving right in was fun as we got into playing music from the first moment.

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

Hey everyone! My name is Bobby, I'm a 30 year-old Salt Lake native. I studied at Westminster College and have a minor in Orchestral percussion.

I've been teaching for over 7 years both young and old students and I'm looking to teach beginner/intermediate drum students.

I focus on teaching students to learn how to read drum music, drum kit, beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.

If you or someone you know is interested please feel free to email or text me.

Bobby is amazing and accomplished. The kindness and encouragement he has shown my son is unparalleled. We will be continuing our lessons with him! Thanks man!
Nathan
Bobby's a very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable drummer who also knows how to teach well. Often times musicians don't always know how to teach their craft, talented as they may be, but Bobby certainly knows both how to play and how to teach. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their drumming skills.
Matt R.
Bobby has a wealth of knowledge and passion about music and can help you learn how to play your favorite songs on drums from any genre (alternative, indie, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classic rock, dance and more). 2 months ago, I knew nothing about drums, and in just 9 lessons so far I can now play a handful of songs and grooves. I learn so much each lesson, and Bobby does everything he can to help me succeed. I highly recommend Bobby.

My lessons are both fun and educational, with flexibility to honor each student's needs and goals. During my time as a drummer, I have had the pleasure of studying music with Dr. Richard Ripani, Eddie Bell, and renowned big band drummer Duffy Jackson in Nashville, TN. I graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Studio Music/Jazz Performance at UT Knoxville, studying with Professor Keith Brown. I want to pass on all the knowledge I gained from them to you! See you soon!

"James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!"

Drum tabs are an abbreviated, simple form of musical instruction used in place of traditional sheet music for drummers.

Instead of looking for sheet music in the music store, for example, you can simply go online and find thousands of drum tabs for all your favorite songs.
