Phil B.

Kent, WA

I emphasize reading and use of the rudiments. I also teach the Moeller Method and how to apply it to all the rudiments as well as to the drum set.

About Phil

Phil B. has Bachelor's Degree in Percussion Performance that he earned at Central Washington University in 1991. Soon after graduating from CWU Phil relocated to the Seattle area and has been teaching and performing professionally in this area ever since. As a performer Phil has worked with many different artists known both internationally and locally in a very wide range of styles, such as Stephen Pearcy (voice of the 80's Metal Band Ratt), top local big band The Jazz Police, Popular Las Vegas Entertainer "Zowie Bowie, and the late great blue legend Isaac Scott (voted into the Washington Bl
ue Society Hall of Fame 1991). Recently Phil has been working with some of the most popular dance/show bands in the Northwest, including The Goods, That 80's Show, Galaxy 54, Vanity, and Gold Digger.
As an instructor Phil worked as a clinician and private instructor with Music Works Northwest and the Seattle Drum School. Currently Phil teaches privately in several different studios in the Seattle Puget Sound area.

Complete 5-piece Drum Set

I teach the Moeller Method. This is a system of technique which involves three basic wrist motions. The basics can be taught in one lesson, but the application takes a lifetime. I also teach all popular styles of contemporary drum set, such as rock, jazz, funk, r&b, and many different Latin styles. I work with students on reading both on snare drum and drum set and also get them playing along and transcribing with recordings of whatever style of music is of interest to them.

I am over 60 and always wanted to learn music, especially the drums. Phil is not only a great teacher, but also has shown remarkable patients for someone like myself with absolutely no music talent whatsoever.

I would give him 10 stars if I could! Awesome! Wonderful! He connected with my son. Very encouraging and taught Joshua a whole lot. He was beyond our expectations!

Our son has been taking lessons from Phil for approximately three years (he’s 10 now) and has really enjoyed it. He really admires Phil. He has advanced along in his playing steadily. Phil has been teaching our son how to chart drum parts and also learn songs for band performances with two other boys his age. He’s not only learned drumming methods, but is also learning to listen to what other musicians are doing to serve a role and be part of a team. We highly recommend Phil… he’s a great teacher and great with kids!

Jeremy S.

Seattle, WA

I've been a drummer and percussionist for over 20 years. I've studied African rhythms with Ghanan drummers, and have taken many years of tabla lessons at the Ali Akbar College. As a drumset player, I've studied with many of the best teachers alive, and can teach any style from jazz to hip-hop to punk and onward.

About Jeremy

A Berklee College of Music graduate and a professional music instructor for over ten years, I can help you to reach your musical goals. I tailor lessons to suit your needs covering everything from skill development, music theory and musicianship, to expanding your repertoire and composing original work. I play and teach drums, piano, bass and guitar. I am new to Seattle, having just moved from San Francisco where I performed regularly at a wide array of venues such as Great American Music Hall, Freight and Salvage, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Bimbos, Bottom of the Hill, Savanna Jazz,
Amnesia, Ashkenaz, Mystic Theater and Cafe Du Nord. I play many styles of music. Jazz, rock, funk, punk, blue-grass... you name it. I can show you how to play what you want to play.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in a strong musical foundation and that learning to play music should be fun!

*** Specialties ***
Whatever style the student is attempting, I stress proper technique and understanding of theory.

David L.

Seattle, WA

My teaching technique is learner-centered. I work with students to help them build a strong vocabulary of drum rudiments and have them apply their newly acquired drumming knowledge to the songs and genres that interest them most. I have found this to be ideal for those at the beginning and intermediate levels. For the advanced drummers out there, I may be able to assist with some minor application of technique or perhaps deviate from standard drumming practices to acquire a fuller awareness of the body's interaction with not only the drumsticks and drum set, but how to maintain total postural awareness.

About David

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, Dyslexia and related states have benefited greatly.

Timothy H.

Tacoma, WA

I am a junior at Pacific Lutheran University, in the Music Education program. I have been playing for nearly 10 years and am currently a member of PLU's Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Concert Band, Percussion Ensemble, and Steel Pan Ensemble.

My hopes in creating these page are to find students, nearing or currently in the middle school age range, who want to learn the basics of percussion playing, timpani, marimba, and snare technique, as well as reading/theory, and instrument maintenance.

About Timothy

Timothy H. is a junior Music Education major at Pacific Lutheran University. He is originally from Grants Pass, Oregon, but spent his middle and high school years in Bremerton, Washington. He now lives in Parkland where he works and attends school. His main goal is to share his love of music with students and teach them the skills they need to be successful in solo work and ensembles. He is dedicated to the education of music, and is looking to cultivate a life long love of music in his students.

I have not observed Tim while he is teaching, however, I've known him for three years as he's been in our scholarship program. He is dedicated and motivated;I think he will be an excellent role model for children. I am delighted he's chosen teaching as his profession, as I think it's a very good fit for him.
