Online Drum Teacher

Hey everyone! My name is Bobby, I'm a 30-year-old Salt Lake native. I studied at Westminster College and have a minor in Orchestral percussion.

I've been teaching for over 7 years both young and old students and I'm looking to teach beginner/intermediate drum students.

I focus on teaching students to learn how to read drum music, drum kit, beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.

Thank you so much for looking!

Bobby is amazing and accomplished. The kindness and encouragement he has shown my son is unparalleled. We will be continuing our lessons with him! Thanks man!
Nathan
Bobby's a very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable drummer who also knows how to teach well. Often times musicians don't always know how to teach their craft, talented as they may be, but Bobby certainly knows both how to play and how to teach. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their drumming skills.
Matt R.
Bobby has a wealth of knowledge and passion about music and can help you learn how to play your favorite songs on drums from any genre (alternative, indie, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classic rock, dance and more). 2 months ago, I knew nothing about drums, and in just 9 lessons so far I can now play a handful of songs and grooves. I learn so much each lesson, and Bobby does everything he can to help me succeed. I highly recommend Bobby.

Online Drum Teacher

My experience spans over 25 years of performing and teaching every drumming style. Each lesson will include period of rudimental work, rhythm reading, and playing different styles behind the drum set. I believe in creating an environment that is focused on playing music well and where the student can have fun while gaining confidence. It is important to develop drummers into functional musicians with good technique, reading skills, and time. We will cover all styles of drumming from jazz to rock/pop, including funk, progressive rock, all of the Latin styles, even hybrid drumming and other percussion as desired.

About Mariano

My experience as a performer and teacher ranges from early music to today's rock and pop, including various percussion instruments from around the world. When studying for my bachelors and masters degrees in music, I did course work in music recording, jazz studies, and music history. In addition,

"My son (6) and I have both been taking drum lessons with Bobby for close to two years and it's been an awesome experience. My son, of course, started from scratch, and I had some basic chops before starting, but with seemingly endless patience and dedication, Bobby has gotten both of us to sound great. We quickly progressed from basic 4/4 rhythms into the cooler world of paradiddles and ghost notes, learning techniques like dynamic drumming that go a long way towards making us both sound like legitimate drummers.

Knowing basically nothing about the technical aspects of drumming when we started, we needed Bobby's help to set up our kit. He showed us how to tune our drums, position the toms and ride/crash cymbals, and all around just get the best sound possible out of our basic TAMA drum kit. When Bobby gets grooving on our drum set, it becomes obvious that it’s not the size or cost of the kit that matters.

When we talked about what styles of music we were into and the kind of music we wanted to play, Bobby found perfect selections for us to play along to and he seems to have the sheet music to every song out there! One time I filmed a street musician drumming the funkiest of beats and after I showed it to Bobby, he broke it down for me so that I could play it too.

Bobby has been the perfect instructor for us and I strongly recommend anyone at any level who's interested in drumming to become a student of his."

"Al is an awesome teacher.

When I was looking for a drumming teacher for my son, I looked at several of the teachers' profiles. I thought that Al's profile was the best fit for my son who had no experience in drumming, and my son has learned so much from Al. Al is a wonderful teacher and very patient. He adjusts to the likes and needs of his students. I like that Al is a professional musician/performer and brings that experience to the table too."

"Joe is a great instructor. I took lessons with him when I was 19 and then stopped. I hit a wall in my progress and was feeling uninspired for months. I was split in so many directions, I was not making any significant progress. I tried online for a while and then it hit me. Go see Joe again. I did and within the first week I was back on track.

If you are a new drummer, go see Joe! I remember when I was first learning from Joe. His teaching style makes it easy to learn.

If you are a drummer who is stuck in a rut and can't progress. Go see Joe. He'll get you back on track.

I won't stop now. I will continue to train with Joe until the student has out-mastered the master."
