The drum set is primarily an ensemble instrument, and I believe it should be studied as such.

My approach focuses mainly on strong fundamentals of playing, particularly on solid time, feel, touch and sound: concepts that are essential for playing music with other people to create meaningful music.

I like to tailor a syllabus for each student in accordance with their own preferences. I want my students to be equally inspired by drumming material in the context of music they enjoy but also to point them towards fundamentals of the instrument that are the foundations for all styles.

About Timur

Having graduated from Berklee College of Music, Timur arrived in NYC in 2008 with a set of drums, a pair of running shoes and a handful of books on meditation, he set about collaborating with as many people as possible. Highlights include playing pop music with Grammy winners and nominees at Flux S

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

"Perfect Drum Teacher for a 6 year-old!

Mike is simply the perfect drum teacher for our high energy 6 year-old son! He has taken the time to get to know Annan and understand how to best teach him. As a result, he is able to push our kid to challenge himself, while still making it so fun that he doesn't want the lesson to end. Mike is also very organized, which makes it easy for the parents to understand what your child is supposed to be practicing throughout the week. He also gives exercises for practice that the kids actually want to do. As a result, Annan practices on his own and is often trying to push himself to do even a little more so that he can impress Mike at this next lesson. If you have a young son who is interested in drums, I can't think of a better teacher than Mike!"
