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 teach all styles of drumming, but I try to match the student with the style that they love. It’s that love of music that will push them to try harder, reach farther and become a true musician. My students have the opportunity to learn how to read, write and transcribe drum charts as well how to maintain and tune their drums. I teach my students how to play along with recordings and encourage them to join a band or ensemble so that they can experience the joy of music from the start."

About Carmen

I have been a teacher and performer in the San Francisco Bay area for over 30 years. I teach Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Latin, and Classical styles on drum set and percussion instruments. I provide all of the sheet music as well as the recordings that I utilize for the student's assignments.

Kay D.
Carmen is top notch! She has been teaching our children for five years, and has been extraordinary all the way. It began when she personally delivered a used drum set to our home that she hand selected for us. Then it continues with her high energy and motivational techniques to make the lessons fun - yet challenging and exciting as well. Technology is engaged to maintain the experience at home.

Carmen's communication is second to none as well. We often work during the lessons and a sitter drives the kids to their lessons. Carmen makes sure to follow up with us (when needed) regarding lesson plans, areas to improve, and even readiness for future tasks. In a word - amazing!

We are so grateful to have Carmen as the person to foster in our children a lifelong love of music and an eagerness to learn about it. Thanks, Carmen!

Effective instructor. She spreads positivity and makes learning fun. The best indeed!
Agata O.
Carmen has been teaching drums to my now 10-year old son for three years. Her patience, extensive repertoire of teaching methods always adapted to his learning style and progress, her contagious energy and her love of all things drums kept my son's motivation high and let him grow his abilities. I am very proud and impressed when he reads drums scores or figures out the beat of a song. Perhaps the two hardest parts for this young man were learning to play with the metronome and regularly practicing his rudiments. Carmen's many teacher's tricks, including books, posters, recordings, apps and well timed challenges with awesome awards have helped him stay on track.

Carmen keeps detailed notes about each of her students so her attention is always spot on and personalized. She makes herself available for any questions outside the classroom. A great person to be around and a talented musician, Carmen will find a way to make you into the drummer you dream to be.

"I have been taking lessons with Khalil for a little over 2 years now and it has been one of the best decisions i've made since landing in L.A. I am a special type of learner and i had never held drum sticks before- Khalil was and still is beyond patient with me and what i appreciate most is that he works with how i learn best. there has been several times he has come up with a couple different ways for me to get certain lessons. he's able to do this because he has soo much experience and such an admirable love for the art.
If you are considering taking drum lessons definitely make sure you take classes with Khalil."

"Christian Johnson is one of the finest percussion instructors I have ever known. He worked on our marching band staff for several years serving as the drumline instructor. Thanks to his patience, professionalism, and wonderful personality, the drumline grew to unseen levels and helped thrust the band into one of the finest in the state for many years.

I strongly recommend Christian Johnson for any type of percussion teaching."
