Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

So, if you’re ready to improve your skills?

Alot of people question whether or not they or there kid have the ability to even learn an instrument. I can have anyone leave there first lesson with the ability to play a beat and a drum fill after there 1st lesson!! Adaptive teaching styles for 1 on 1 lessons makes learning easier and we always have fun with our instruments!!

My emphasis is in two area:
1. a strong technical base on the instrument
2. an understanding of music forms
the student is encouraged to follow whatever style fit them the most, in keeping with these fundamental principles

Marc is extremely patient and passionate about his teaching. Not only does he emphasize the basic techniques for a beginner like me to master, but also make it fun for me. He also tries to motivate me with music theory and history which definitely help me understand the music better and inspire me to master the basics. Marc has an amazingly amount of knowledge in everything else as well, such as physics etc. that shows up in his teaching from time to time, which makes the learning experience much richer!
Brian L.
Marc is an incredibly friendly drum coach who also knows when to push his students to their limits. He has the rare ability to inspire his students so that they perform to the best of their abilities. If you don't sign up with Marc for your next drum lesson, I would suggest re-evaluating your decisions.
Rafal W.
Marc is a great teacher. Classes are always very friendly and productive. In my case, each class begins with a review of progress/practice, and ends with a meaningful and personalized homework. He is also very flexible, sometimes I had to move my classes around and he's always super responsive and understanding. I knew nothing about drums, and I am happy I decided to begin my journey to learn how to play them, with Marc as a mentor!

First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)

Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..

Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

Online Drum Teacher

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.

About James

Hi! I have been a drumset educator for over 3 decades. I benefited from formal education on the drumset, and I want to pass that along to you so you can experience the full joy that this wonderful instrument can bring you!

Jim has been a fantastic teacher to our son. He explains everything patiently and approaches his lessons very systematically. He selects songs that incorporate essential drumming skills (e.g. songs that include doubles, paradiddles, accented notes, etc.). This way, the the student is able to develop an understanding of how theory fits practice.

Jim is an absolute gem. he has a great personality and my son absolutely loves him. oh yes, he is a great instructor as well. can't say enough about James. a class act

He knows his stuff, is patient but strict and gentle but firm. He even hosts recitals for his students a couple of times a year. We feel very fortunate to have signed up with Jesse. If you are interested in learning an instrument you will be glad to have Jesse as your instructor."

"I took up drums 2 years ago in my early 40's. Francisco was my first drum teacher, and he patiently introduced me to the instrument, exposed me to many different musical concepts and traditions, and really increased my interest in music and drumming. He is an amazing player, and I learned much from watching him play in lessons and also live. Unfortunately he moved from Boston to CA, which was my loss.I reccommend him without reservation."

My son started taking lessons with Steve at 7 years old. He's now 15 and still at it. Steve is patient, intelligent and has a great way of working with students at their level.

"I have know Ty Key for over ten years, he is a human metronome. He can play any style of music and play it to perfection. I have seen him perform with different bands and different styles over the years and one thing is constant, his play stands out. I have seen him record at East West studios In LA tracking both live drums and the total live percussion set and the results were amazing. He plays in the pocket, both rhythm and solos. I could not feel more comfortable recommending someone who has mastered their craft more than Ty. He is easy to get along with and an outstanding teacher. He has worked as a drum technician and teacher at school ever since I’ve known him. He is a great person and you would lucky to learn from him."
