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!

Private 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.

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.

Hi. My name is Asael Escribano. I am 31 years old and I have been teaching at home on Saturdays for the past 3 years. I like to help people who are either beginning their journey as drummers or who are wanting to try to learn drums. I use an approach that is not completely theoretical but rather practical and focused on teaching rhytms and simple patterns to make it less “boring” and more enjoyable.

"WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!"

Not to mention- she is such a talented drummer herself, so she is just a wealth of knowledge and inspiring as heck. Absolutely awesome instructor!"

"Our daughter has been taking lessons with Craig for a little over a year. We’ve heard a great deal of progress from her since she started. My daughter's feedback: Craig takes the time to correct small details and write out the counts. He won’t rush through lessons and keeps things fun. He adapts to the students interests. e.g. took the time to create specific lessons for cowbell and drum brushes. Overall we couldn’t be happier with Craig and we highly recommend him."

"Seth is NOT your run of the mill drummer or teacher. Re-read that a few times as I cannot stress this enough. He is not going to take some cookie-cutter approach and teach you the latest beat you heard on the radio. Seth has pushed his own abilities to the elite upper echelons of drumming and has verifiable world records and performances to back that up. Seth is a meticulous individual and that translates into his approach to music and how he teaches that to his students. I have known Seth for years, studied his material (and continue to do so), and know plenty of professionals in the music industry. Seth is in a league of his own and will help you reach your own apex if you are willing to make the commitment to what he says. Get on the waitlist if that even exists, trust me."

A Beginner's Guide to Reading Drum Tabs

Drum tabs are an abbreviated, simple form of musical instruction used in place of traditional sheet music for drummers. Many modern musicians and music students prefer to use this kind of tablature because it's easier to write and easier to find. Instead of looking for sheet music in the music store, for example, you can simply go online and find thousands of drum tabs for all your favorite songs. Sheet Music and Musical Tabs Tabs are different from sheet music because they are written specifi …
