Private Drum Teacher

Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! Lessons would be catered to the goals of each student. I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.

About Jeremiah

I have been teaching drum for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle

For all of my students regardless of age I like to teach music aurally. We will first listen to what we are trying to learn then attempt to either sing or speak the phrases of the composition. We practice each phrase with many repetitions at various tempos before we move to the instrument. We then repeat this process with our instruments. For balding technique we zoom in even further to take a closer look at the music. Breaking down phrases to their smallest parts helps to gain fluency over the musical language, mastery over the technical aspects of our instruments and develop focus. To boost our creativity we use these phrases for improvisation. During everything we practice we always focus on various tools to help us improve our musicality.I get so much joy out of teaching music. One thing that I love about it is how much I learn from my students. It is a beautiful thing to embrace your own individuality. In my lessons I encourage my students to be themselves. Each lesson is ...

Brian Calhoun is a champ! After learning from him in our Drum Corps group I am now taking lessons twice a week online. He is patient, kind and super talented. I'm learning more every day. Thanks Brian!
Marian
Brian is an excellent drum teacher. He is a very talented performer, but he is most passionate about sharing his love for music and drums with anyone who is interested in learning. His passion and excitement are contagious! Brian’s kind, patient and respectful nature helps him connect with his students. He encourages them to develop their skills at their own pace, and builds their confidence while making learning and performing a fun experience. My son enjoyed working with Brian for many years and I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in beginning or expanding their skills on the drums. He is a gem!
Penny
Brian worked with my daughter jenny as part of Free drum corp. He is so patient and caring....and worked miracles with these disabled adults...enabling them to work together to perform as a marching band.

Easy to sign up and Great customer service

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.
