The drums are a vibrant and energetic instrument that can be enjoyed by players of all ages. Whether you are a complete beginner, or are playing at an intermediate or advanced level, our teachers can help you reach the next stage with private drum lessons in NYC!
In your drum lessons, you will learn how to read music, how time signatures work and how to hold your rhythm. You will also be instructed in the best drumming techniques, correct posture and how to hold drumsticks. If you’re interested in learning a specific genre or style, our instructors will customize the lesson plans to cater to your interests.
Without professional instruction, it is impossible to ensure that you are playing with good technique. Beginners may struggle to learn the correct way to play the drums when learning alone, and can quickly develop bad habits. Intermediate and advanced players are missing out on a wealth of knowledge when they choose to learn without a qualified instructor. A private teacher, however, can point out issues you never knew were a problem.
All of our instructors are screened to ensure your safety and the quality of your lessons. What’s more, you’re protected by our 100% Money Back Guarantee, so you can take your first lesson at no risk!
New York City is one of the most important places in the world for music, being that it was central to the birth of hip hop, salsa music, disco, Latin freestyle and punk rock. It’s also home to hugely-popular music magazines Spin and Rolling Stone, and several important venues, such as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall. Taking drum lessons in NYC will give you the chance to be a part of this culture, and who knows - maybe you’ll be the next to make it big in the New York City music scene!
I divide my lessons into technique (mostly done on a practice pad) and coordination (playing drums).
Learning the rudiments is essential for any drum set player or a percussionist. First, I focus on getting a nice clean single roll, double roll and a buzz roll which are the building blocks of all styles of drumming.
Once the student masters that he will be able to play with a nice feel and groove and have a natural approach to the drums so he can express himself effortless and with ease.
It will be lots of fun and you will groove with a smile on your face!
I teach all styles and levels of drumming! Focus on listening, playing along to songs and recordings, groove, time keeping, technique and reading. Some discussion of music theory and history. I tailor my lessons to meet each individual student’s needs and expectations. I encourage students to bring their favorite songs and we usually end up working with those. I also like using songs by The Beatles as they provide a perfect (fun and familiar) platform to learn many different aspects of drumming and musical performance.
I've been teaching drums/percussion for over 15 years! My curriculum comes directly from my extensive knowledge from attending Percussion Institute of Technology in Los Angeles, CA and my hands on experience touring nationally and internationally with bands since the age of 16! We will start with proper technique, posture and rudiments and graduate to proper coordination, tempos and various styles and patterns. My teaching philosophy is simple, "You get what you give".
My teaching approach brings together a great combination of real-world experience and a studied knowledge of how the brain learns music at different ages. I've been teaching for over 10 years and love teaching students of all ages and levels.
