I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over fifteen years and teaching for about 12. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels (lessons at my studio will be on electronic kit).

First, I would like to get to know the student and their goals in order to tailor lesson plans to reach their goals. In general, many students I have taught in the past are interested in specific genres of music and drumming, so we would go over the necessary skills needed to play those genres. I also like to teach improvisation and chops, if you are interested in learning more of a solo drumming style then I can also facilitate that. The fundamentals I like to focus on are derived from the essential rudiments, video examples and the books: "The Art of Bop Drumming" and "A Funky Primer." Styles I like particularly are: bebop jazz, neo-soul and funk. Some contemporary drummers that I like particularly are: Carter Mclean, Yussef Dayes, Matt Gartska, Eric Harland and Brian Blade. I hope to teach drums in a way that allows for each student to develop their own style with which they can employ in any group setting.

As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

Vir is a gifted teacher. He has taught my son guitar for more than a year. He meets my son where ever he's at in his practice, attention and interests with calm, skilled focus and intention . Vir's background as performing musician infuses his teaching with an enthusiasm and creativity of practicing his teaching. We are truly grateful for Vir.

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

"I had a great experience studying with Corey. I had already been playing drums for about 10 years, and I had been stuck at the same level for a long time. But then Corey got me switched on to a couple of method books and practice routines that kicked me up to a whole new level! Everyone in my band could tell the difference, and drumming is fun and exciting for me again. 5/5 would recommend Corey to any level of drummer looking to grow!"
