Private Drum Teacher

Beginners- We focus quite a bit on developing a split foundation of rhythm. This included written notation and basic rhythmic dictation. We start learning how to feel rhythm, and play simple drum beats or patterns well

Intermediate- In addition to the above info, we start to learn more advance techniques, and how to incorporate them into playing the drums.

Private Drum Teacher

I have developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. I have the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers! My approach focuses on:
-building an understanding and relationship with each drum
-the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming
-how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums
-basic mechanical techniques
-development of each limb
-learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them
-learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set
-gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer
-learning your favorite songs on drums
-how to play in a band

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

"When I say he is the best instructor ever, I mean that he is the BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER! I took lessons from a teacher closer to where I live, however, did not feel I was effectively learning. I decided to look in the Atlanta area for someone, thinking there would be more options. Casey came up so I decided to give him a try. The hour+ drive I take to get to him is 110% worth it. I have learned so much from him; he is incredibly talented and has the best teaching strategies...not to mention he is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I look forward to continuing to work with him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to seriously learn to play drums."

"Jimmy is the best instructor ever!! I went into playing drums not really having any knowledge of music what so ever. I have been playing for 7 months now and I have learned so much. He is so encouraging and is always giving you positive feedback on how your doing and it makes you feel good about yourself and how you play. I am always learning new things about my instrument and how important my roll as a musician is no matter who I am playing with or for. With Jimmy the lessons might be once a week but he is always there no matter what day or time to help you out with any questions you may have. He is the best there is no one else like him!!! Every lesson is fun and I look forward to going every week!!"

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."
