Drums:
One of my favorite instruments to teach , and definitely a fun instrument to learn, is the full Drum Set. You will love my method as it is very easy to follow. Starting with very basics of learning rhythms, within the first two lessons you will be able to play beats with a band! Study with me for over twenty years if you like and you will learn all styles of beats, polyrhythms and more.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.

Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

To the extent of what I learned in my experience, Andrew is a great percussion teacher for students looking to join a band or marching band. He obviously had a great amount of knowledge and experience with the instrument itself but also the teaching of it. By the end of the first lesson we had already moved to patterns with 8 strikes on each hand and was presented with an arsenal of other exercises for afterwards to find a rate of improvement when given time. He is a very patient teacher and is sensitive to mistakes and which ones to focus on. I could safely recommend him to any of my friends who are also into percussion, and can speak from experience that any nervousness of getting a new teacher quickly dissolves after the first lesson. Great teacher.

I have a background in fundamental rhythm, rather than teaching the student to simply play, I teach them to read and write their own rhythms and drum beats in a fun and hands-on manner using methods that music teachers around the country use in their classrooms. Furthermore, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 4 years old from their very first lesson. I’ve developed my own method for children to read drum music using simple and an easy to understand rhythmic language.

Online Drum Teacher

Hi, my name is Liam, and I am excited to help you or your child learn how to play the drums.

My 20+ years of performing across the country taught me how to wow audiences from 10 to 10,000. But teaching has taught me compassion, and how to break big, complicated things down into bite size pieces.

I’m most interested in students learning to play music they love, and learning the techniques and the rudiments to help them get there along the way.

Playing music is fun, and learning it should be, too.

About Liam

Hi, I'm Liam. My story starts two decades ago with a snare drum and a private teacher, the summer before I was old enough to try out for school band. I practiced all summer so I'd be ready. When tryouts rolled around, I conquered. Yes! By the end of the year, we learned a Beatles song. That was

We couldn't be happier with Matt. He has taken a shy, not-so-confident young boy and turned him into a proud, musically knowledgeable and darn good drummer !!!
