Private Drum Teacher

I am a Percussionist of the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance. I have studied under Ray DeMarchi (BVNW), Jenny Wagner (FCBB), Derek Frank ((Pro)ject C4) and currently Dr. Nick Petrella (Head of Sabian Music Education and Adjunct Professor of UMKC.) This is currently my 5th year playing with the Fountain City Youth Brass Academy.
My studio is a learning place for the beginning percussionist to enhance their skills in drum set, concert and rudimental (marching) snare drum, 2 mallet and 4 mallet marimba playing, and world percussion (hopefully timpani and more soon!)

Sarah taught two of our sons beginning percussion lessons. She is very warm and put the boys at ease, without sacrificing expectations. She made lessons relatable to each boy and never compared them to each other. Sarah has a wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience that make her an excellent choice in percussion teachers.

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 :)

Online Drum Teacher

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.

About James

I benefited from formal education on the drumset, and I want to pass that along to you so you can experience the full joy that this wonderful instrument can bring you!

Jim has been a fantastic teacher to our son. He explains everything patiently and approaches his lessons very systematically. He selects songs that incorporate essential drumming skills (e.g. songs that include doubles, paradiddles, accented notes, etc.). This way, the the student is able to develop an understanding of how theory fits practice.
