Teaching students how to play with bands and read music are both important. I've played over 30 years and taught over 20 of those years. Grooves, coordination, reading and soloing are all aspects of what I teach from mostly my own books. I combine having fun with the commitment of practicing into a well rounded learning experience. I have recitals for students to show off their talents 1-2 times yearly. I'm versatile in teaching new drummers or advanced students. I look forward to our lessons.

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band or full drum set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. My goal is to help students grow with their comfort and confidence. If you are comfortable and confident, then you will have fun. It all works together.

David is an excellent teacher! My son enjoys his personality and is learning so much. He is really growing as a musician after only 3 lessons. David is very flexible and easy to work with. He is easily contacted and promptly responds to any questions we have. Because of his extensive musical experience, David has the skills to teach every genre. We are enjoying his teaching plan on continuing lessons with David for a long time.

Let’s have some fun.

Yes, technique and repetition and practice are critical to mastering any craft, but music is about the muse—the inspiration. We explore what inspires you, invent methods to increase your skill, and lean into your enthusiasm.

Drums, along with the human voice, are the most accessible musical instruments on the planet. Rhythm is the most important part of music, and drums embody rhythm. Whether you're looking for lessons on a trap set or hand drums, my 25 years of experience will illuminate your way.

We’ll play with a variety of genres, find beats that challenge your coordination, and expand your ability to listen and discover your place in any song. Join my circle.

"Evan is a terrific drum teacher for our two sons. My youngest is a beginner; Evan has structured lessons for him but definitely encourages creativity. My oldest is in a band at school and Evan is great at reinforcing the style of music that he plays at school (mostly jazz) and teaching other styles that my son enjoys playing (mostly rock). He is organized, dependable, and easy going. He is flexible when we have conflicts. Most importantly, not only does he have great skill but he has a great demeanor for teaching: he is kind, encouraging, and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommend him!"

"Joe is a great instructor. I took lessons with him when I was 19 and then stopped. I hit a wall in my progress and was feeling uninspired for months. I was split in so many directions, I was not making any significant progress. I tried online for a while and then it hit me. Go see Joe again. I did and within the first week I was back on track.

If you are a new drummer, go see Joe! I remember when I was first learning from Joe. His teaching style makes it easy to learn.

If you are a drummer who is stuck in a rut and can't progress. Go see Joe. He'll get you back on track.

I won't stop now. I will continue to train with Joe until the student has out-mastered the master."

"Outstanding Drum Instructor

Casey has been instructing our 9-year old son for over a year. He is an outstanding drum instructor and I highly recommend him. Casey goes above and beyond as an instructor and his passion for music AND teaching is always evident. Casey connected with our son by taking the time and effort to get to know him to understand how he learns and what he likes. He adapts his approach to ensure our son is having fun while learning. Best of all, the results are tangible ... our son enjoys his lessons, looks forward to practicing, and has learned how to play and read music. I would not hesitate in the least in hiring Casey as an instructor."
