The things students would expect from me in a lesson would be the concept of keeping time with a metronome. Playing grooves that the student enjoys to hear. Using rudiments which would build creativity in the students playing. Exercises that building the strength of the student's wrist . The basic concepts of reading sheet music . And mainly to have fun playing over songs the student loves listening to.

About Scott

Hi! I'm Scott. I usually perform using a one-man band setup I created. I modified guitar and made foot pedals to control a drum set, while singing. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer.

Had our first lesson with Scott. He was great with my 7 year old. We look forward to future lessons with him!

Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.

Online Drum Teacher

I am a multi-instrumentalist with 8 years of collegiate education under my belt and coursework in music theory, jazz, composition, and audio engineering.

I perform professionally with groups on a weekly basis and play in a variety of styles.

Percussion was not my first instrument, so I had to work much harder to catch up to my peers. All of my formal education is strictly on auxiliary percussion, so I treat drum kit as an orchestra of percussion instruments, rather than a standard instrument. I am all about fostering growth through creativity and self-evaluation, and I seek to help students grow as musicians from a comprehensive perspective.

I walk students through more than just functional drumming; I enrich their knowledge and facility with studies in music theory, ear training, and composition to avoid training "drummers", but rather: musicians.

About Machado

I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, audio engineer, and educator based out of Portland, OR. I have 8 years of collegiate experience in performance, composition, theory, and pedagogy from Washington State University, University of Puget Sound, and Whitman College. I play

I started taking drum lessons at age 22 so I felt too old to begin learning how to play a new instrument. I'm so glad that Dennis was my teacher. He gave me confidence and encouragement to become the great drum player I am today. His methods of teaching are well rounded, his lesson plans are efficient and since day one he guaranteed I would be ready to play songs with a band in only 6 months. Indeed I started playing with several bands after 6 months of having lessons with Dennis. I highly recommend him as a drum teacher and mentor!
KV
V patient w/beginners and provided excellent tips and encouragement. Would recommend to anyone starting out on drums or adding another instrument to their repertoire. Provided great insight that also helped in cross-training, if already playing another instrument.
Marshal
I've studied with several teachers over the years, but Dennis was the best. I was a novice and Dennis took me to the next level. I'm forever grateful.

Preparing for a Drum Audition: Cruise Ship Musician Gig

A few weeks ago we discussed how to prepare for a gig, but what if you're stuck on the very first step of getting through the audition? Check out this expert advice from DC-area drum teacher Andrew T., who has experience working as a musician for Princess Cruises:   As musicians, most of our gigs stem from informal auditions, which are typically very loose and relaxed. But what happens when you are asked to audition formally for a gig with a large corporation? From 2007 to 2009 I worked …
