I'm a working, professional drummer performing regularly with top artists in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA. I have over 10 years of teaching experience, and previously directed a collegiate jazz program. As a teacher, I believe in letting students choose their own paths. Set your goals, and I'll show you the quickest way to reach them, covering all the technical and theoretical information you'll need as we go. No matter your experience level or area of interest, I can help you get to where you want to go!

Private Drum Teacher

In my lessons I strive to make the maximum progress possible, while also having as much fun as possible. This is accomplished by imparting the most valuable, useful, and beneficial information in a fun and relaxed, low pressure environment, always with the students goals and priorities first and foremost. I also like to keep the student challenged at their current ability level.

For beginning students I stress basic fundamentals, just as you would in sports. It makes progress come at a much faster clip and avoids making time consuming corrections later. The longer you play with bad habits, the harder they are to break.

For more advanced students, I assess their current abilities, determine if any problems need to be addressed, and with their goals in mind, come up with the proper plan of action.

Having been self taught till entering college I understand all ends of the spectrum. In my career I have come across three separate groups of musicians:

My son has been taking lessons with Ed since he was 5. Ed was very patient dealing with a high energy child who had a limited attention span. Eight years later, we are still seeing Ed weekly for lessons and my son has turned into a well-rounded musician. Ed tailors the lessons to my son's musical interests and takes an interest in what is going on in his life.

We have gone to see Ed perform in several venues and he always takes the time to talk to us during his break. I highly recommend Drum Lessons with Ed for those at any skill level.

I am a passionate music professional with experience in many facets of the music industry. As a seasoned performer, I have traveled the United States for tours and major performances at festivals and conferences including Lollapalooza, SXSW, and Northside Festival. I was a finalist in the 2017 Hit Like A Girl International Drum contest.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in 2016 with a degree in Music Business Management and a minor in Music Technology. Currently, I perform across North America with my independent psychedelic rock quartet Bat House. Bat House independently released their debut self-produced record in April 2017 and were nominated for two Boston Music Awards (‘17) -- ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Music Video (unsigned artist)’. The band has recorded work with industry tastemakers Audiotree, Daytrotter, and Converse Rubber Tracks.

As a dedicated educator, I seek to bring a passion and love for music to my students through the music they enjoy. ...

Online Drum Teacher

After years of playing with some of the best musicians on the planet, as well as learning from the great masters of the past, giving clinics and guiding countless students through their musical paths, I've built gradual methods of internalizing rhythm and movement that are meant to not only help the student learn that which they're pursuing in the most efficient way possible, but inspire them along the way -- cultivating their passion and encouraging them to engage with the material with the type of fascination and curiosity that brings about the best student they can be.

We will be working on knowing where One is, technique and movement around the drums/pad, soloing, harmonic rhythm, as well as any material the student themselves would like to work on.

About Daniel

Touring drummer, educator, multi-instrumentalist, clinician and composer, collaborated with artists such as Avishai Cohen, Pat Metheny, John Patitucci and others, teaching private lessons in Brooklyn. The methods of internalizing rhythm I've developed are intended at providing the student with an

Excellent first lesson! I’m so excited to continue my lessons with Paul!

I'll get right to the point. Paul's personality made it extremely easy for me not only to be comfortable but to feel really appreciated. I was fearful that Paul may feel like, "oh great another person who THINKS he has something but can't sing a lick!" I experienced the exact opposite. Within 15 minutes he located what has been my most frustrating issue. I felt like I was already ahead of the game and we hadn't even started yet! Paul has the rare balance of a sense of humor and still following an agenda to meet my goal. Thanks to Paul I really feel like I can, and WILL reach all my goals. AND enjoy the journey to them!! Can't wait for the next lesson!

Online Drum Teacher

Most times it is the beat that first draws you into a song. When you find your foot a-tapping to the rhythm of a song you know you're hooked into it! We'll begin by learning the parts of a drum kit, basic techniques, warmups/ exercises, rhythms, then we go into applying that knowledge to learning your favorite songs!

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of re

"I started a bit behind the other kids in elementary school band. Chris was the drum instructor for the high school marching band at the time and my band teacher highly recommended him for private lessons.

Chris was able to get me caught up to the other drummers within a couple months. I was finally able to read sheet music fluently and began to be assigned more advanced parts to play in the school band. Each week Chris gave me homework assignments such as working on different rudiments or reading and playing different types of percussion sheet music (bells, xylophone, etc). My lessons with a Chris paid off over the years, as I was able to join the high school marching band as a middle schooler and went on to win accolades for my drumming in the school plays. Everything I learned and accomplished most definitely stemmed from my lessons with Chris!"
