I have been playing drums since I was 5 years old! I have my undergraduate degree in Percussion and Music Composition and a Graduate degree in Music Composition. I work as a session drummer on recording sessions, and I can teach nearly any style of music--rock, jazz, folk, latin, and more!

About Davy
I am a full time percussionist, composer, installation artist, and recording engineer in Los Angeles and Eau Claire, WI!

I have an MFA in Music Composition/Experimental Sound Practices from CalArts in Los Angeles, and a BFA in Percussion and Music Composition from the university of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

I have worked with Grammy-winning artists Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, and Rob Moose, have performed at REDCAT (LA), the Milwaukee Sculpture Garden (WI), The Cedar Cultural Center (MN), and have played for composers Michael Pisaro, Amy Knoles, and more!

In addition to my work as a freela
nce music teacher and musician, I am the Lead Fellow for the CalArts AmeriCorps Saturday program at CalArts in Valencia. I oversee 10 CalArts Student instructors, teach music theory, composition, and electronic music, and work with students and parents to culminate our academic year with a massive outdoor concert in CalArts' Wild Beast Concert Hall!

About Athan
Hello potential students, my name is Athan G. and I would love to be your new teacher! I have been teaching for over eight years, and love it as much as I love music itself. I have extensive experience in helping students reach their goals, becoming the best drummers and musicians that they can be.

Whether beginner or advanced, and any genre from jazz to rock to hip hop, I feel I have the knowledge to take your drumming and music-making to the highest level (and of course, have a blast doing it!)

Athan really knows his instrument. He can quickly find your technical deficiencies and determine how you can overcome them. He's laid back and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

Hi, there! My name is Lenny and I’m excited to meet you and help you achieve YOUR musical and drumming goals by making lessons truly about YOU!

Unlike many music teachers who quickly jump into tedious exercises; my first goal is to find out which bands YOU like, who YOUR drumming heroes are, and what YOUR drumming goals are.

Then we can have fun with exercises, learn cool techniques, or jam out in my awesome studio based on your favorite music! My goal as the teacher is to have you playing as much as possible during the lessons so you have fun and learn something important EVERY SINGLE LESSON. You should walk away from every lesson smiling and feeling confident!!!

All you have to do is show up and have fun, I take care of every else.

If you are curious as to playing ability or background, click on the videos below. Quick background is I’ve been a busy private teacher for about 12 years. Have taught literally thousands of drums, bass, guitar, piano, music recording ...

Lenny is an amazing drummer and performer. He really improved my drum playing skills after just one session! As a guitarist, I have been messing around with drums for years but I really feel like these lessons are going to take me to the next level. Lenny is awesome!

Carlos was awesome. I needed to learn a song for play in a video. He took me with patient and step by step I learn not only what I need but even things like gestures body, face and hands position. I feel very confident with myself after the lessons. He also has a great knowledge and is very strict. When you do the stuff good, you really know... But generally and most important I have very fun because he is very nice!. Thanks Carlos for the lessons!! I still playing "colmillos"!! haha.

Carlos has been wonderful to teach Drums as well as Ear Training. It's difficult to find an instructor and I feel extremely lucky that I ended up studying with him. Really knows how to hone in on the specific techniques that you need to improve your playing skills and become a better player. He talks and listen to you and he perfectly knows how you can be your best. He is very knowledgeable, patient, persistent and makes this a lot of fun. Also I learn Spanish with him! I really enjoy! Greatest teacher!

I'm an experienced drum teacher, my main focus is to find out what your goals are and help you achieve them! The lessons will be tailored to your specific needs in a fun, and always musical way. You'll learn rudiments, technique, and reading while playing along to your favorite songs.

About Ray
Hello! My name is Ray R. and I'm a professional drummer and drum instructor.

I have been teaching private lessons for over four years and I'm currently accepting new students at my home studio, the studio is fully sound proofed and sound treated to make the lessons more enjoyable. I count with two drum sets, which allows me and the student to play together, making the lessons more fun and efficient. I'm also available to travel to your place if that's your preference. I've taught students ranging from 3 years old to 60 years old.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Performance of Contemporary
Music from Musicians Institute, where I have also been a private tutor in subjects including technique, reading, and overall drum set playing. Currently a drum instructor in Cornel School of Contemporary Music, teaching reading classes and contemporary styles, and at Modern Music School, where most of my students are kids. I'm also a published author with 6 educational drum books available in Amazon that are perfect for a beginner drummer who is first learning how to play, or for intermediate players who are looking to strengthen their foundations as drummers.

I'm a huge fan of teaching and take the opportunity to help you improve at something you love very seriously. I look forward to helping you accomplish all of your drumming goals!

Ray R. is what I would call a "Performance Teacher" to me. I am a guitarist and play with him to improve everything from rhythm to live performance skills. Not only is Ray an absolute beast of a musician, he is a wonderful teacher. As many people may know, just because one is a good musician it doesn't necessarily mean you also know how to be an effective teacher. Ray is the best of both worlds! I have improved leagues since I started playing with him some months ago. I COULD NOT recommend his as a teacher enough.
