*** Lesson Details ***
For most of us drummers and rhythmatists we cannot go an hour without banging something or tapping or humming or moving.. if this describes you or your child then Im the guy who would be delighted to foster your development in your lifelong pursuit of the ultimate beat. I cannot give you God given talent , but I can take what talent god has given you and accentuate the positive. Work with you on fundamentals, technique, timbre, timing, tuning, sight reading..the list goes on..Its a lifelong pursuit..How long you choose to pursue it is up to you.. Im here to be your mentor.

Im pretty laid back with teaching discipline. Either you got it or you dont. I cannot push you or force you into practicing.. You must inherently love music and love rhythm and love drumming or percussion. If I am working with you on Kit drumming you will be starting out with the basics unless you have experience. I normally do an assessment to determine where you are at.. If I am teaching you hand percussion or African or Asian based drums then its strictly an aural based learning experience. No books just memorization. Kit drumming will require either you have your own Drum kit if I am coming to your house or of you travel to my studio I will have 1 drum kit to share , but you must have your own sticks. I do employ books in Drum Kit lessons. I will give you the names of the books based on what I think your level is and we can go from there..

Music is a complex yet beautiful language. Once you are immersed in the culture of the beat your journey thus begins. And journeys like these last a lifetime. I hope I can be a part of your experience.

Many Blessings
One Rhythm
One Love

I had my doubts at first of taking a class online, because I am not an easy student, my body awareness is not very good, but Corbin is such a great teacher and he knows very well what he is doing, so I was pleasantly surprised with the results. He is patient, encouraging and to the point. Highly recommended.

Corbin was fantastic!! He really knows his stuff. I came to him with a few things to work on and he identified them without me telling him. He also picked up on several other items that we addressed. He had some great techniques to help me identify what I could do better and then had the suggestions for improvement. I am looking forward to working with Corbin again. Excellent experience.

I worked with Joy during her directed production of "dtf" as a part of Drexel University's Director's Lab performance during fall of 2016. Joy was an absolute blast to work with and was extremely encouraging during the course of our rehearsals leading up to the performance. She really helped my scene partner and I to explore our characters on a much deeper level than what was proactively displayed on stage. I felt that it helped me immensely as an actor during the show as I felt much more comfortable in my position on stage and more "in-tune" with my character. Joy is a wonderful director who puts in maximum effort for directing and takes a personal and effective approach to actor preparation for her productions!

Joy helped me prepare monologues countless times. She had a really great sense of getting right to the meat of things. " why is your character doing this..?", " who are they talking to?" " what's the subtext?" " what is the underlying need?" These are all questions she's helped me sort out. She's also great at telling you what is playing/working/reading in terms of actor choices. Love her!

About Brian "Bizzy"
Brian “Bizzy” Linder, an altruistic and empowered professional in
the entertainment industry, started dancing in his adolescence.
During Bizzy’s transition to becoming a professional dancer, he had
the opportunity to work with Freedom Theatre (located in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) for various productions. Subsequent to
networking with many managers and directors in the business,
Bizzy landed his first series of opportunities to choreograph many
shows and projects throughout the Philadelphia region.

In 2007, Bizzy decided that it was time to relocate to Atlanta,
Georgia so that he could further his studies in dance. He also
received a few teaching positions (Dance 411 Studios and Gotta
Dance Atlanta), which helped him solidify his niche and market his
brand as a dancer/choreographer.

A year later (2008), Bizzy decided to relocate to Los
Angeles,
California where he could focus on breaking into the industry.
Moments later, he received a few opportunities to teach at some of
the most sought after dance facilities in Hollywood (Debbie
Reynolds Dance Studio and Debbie Allen Dance Academy). His craft
has lead him to work with brands such as Verizon, Chanel, along
with the likes of Wyclef Jean, Jill Scott, Will.I.AM, Alicia Keys, LeAnn
Rimes, Raheem Davaughn, Ludacris, Jazmine Sullivan, Flo-Rida,
Keke Palmer, Leona Lewis, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Enrique
Inglesias, Beyonce, and many more.
