I have a 100% rate of getting my students into their school of choice as of yet. Although I don't guarantee it, I will work relentlessly to make sure you are well prepared though. I will also lend you PDFs of books to help you save a buck.

About Scott

I have been playing drums and percussion since the ripe old age of 9, in 4th grade. Originally wanting to play the clarinet, my music teacher thought my sense of rhythm was too good to waste and placed me in the drum section. I was the only kid who didn't want to play drums. Over twenty years later

Had my first lesson with Scott today. I was very happy with the way it went . I'm 50 years old with no experience at all - so I can honestly say the lesson was enjoyable without any pressure.
Jack F.
Scott is amazing with our 7 year son beginner. He has him so engaged and excited to learn & play. He's a one-of-a-kind teacher.

Scott is inspiring, motivating, caring, attentive, personal and professional. In only a few weeks my daughter is developing a solid foundation in technique, rhythmic notation and musicianship. I would strongly reccommend him.

Hello my name is James! I'm a professional musician and teacher from Florida. I've earned my Bachelors of Science in Music in 2017, and have been giving one on one lessons since 2014.
I'm proficient in a variety of style of music on the drum; rock, funk, jazz, hip hop, gospel. My goal is to get you playing new beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.
Best part is, I've got all the instruments you would to need to play at my studio!

James is a very thoughtful and patient instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago as a child and always wanted to learn more. James was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable. I finally have the confidence to continue what I started many moons ago.
Layla
Thank you James! I was not that good with music growing up. Drums and guitar looks so complicated and I was interested. He is very patience. I don't have good rhythm with music! After getting 1 or 2 beats right i was excited! Practice and lessons make Perfect?? I hope so! "

Michelle is a great teacher. She is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about music. My child loves going to class and hates missing a class (only when she's sick). She makes learning music fun but it also firm if the child doesn't meet the expectation. It's been a year since we started lessons and we couldn't be more happier.
Izabel M.
Michelle has been very good at keeping my 8 year old engaged and interested in learning to read music. We are looking forward to many more lessons.

Online Drum Teacher

My goal is to unlock your creativity! As an active musician, producer, and teacher, I love helping people learn to read, write, and play the music they love and envision. My teaching philosophy is that every aspect of music is connected and therefore to really get it, you have to learn it all! I take a wide ground up approach inching away at rhythm, melody, theory, technique, and feel altogether, advancing all musical skills equally over time.

About Joshua

I am a Nashville-based musician and record producer, originally from just north of Chicago in Gurnee, IL. I began my musical journey at the early age of three. My parents recount me banging on pots and pans before I could speak, so they placed me in piano lessons at three years old and drum lessons

I first started taking lessons with Josh about two and a half years ago and I have truly valued all of the time we’ve spent together! He is such a supportive and fun instructor who focuses on teaching in an engaging and individualized way, which helps students to reach their personal goals and more! Josh constantly inspires me to view music from new perspectives, encourages me to explore outside of my comfort zone, and has ultimately helped me get closer to reaching my full potential!
Zach
Josh is a great teacher who is knowledgable and personable. He works to make content understandable and applicable to the student. I highly recommend taking lessons from Josh if you are looking to deepen your understanding of music production.
Lindsey
I struggled with piano for a while because it was pretty tedious at times and I would get a bit bored... but that never happened when working with Josh! I learned so much from him AND had the most fun while doing it. Now I’m so excited and inspired to play.

"Mike is a very good drummer and a very good instructor! I'm a student and it's a very fun, productive time, and just an all around good experience. All the songs I am/have learned are awesome and it's not confusing. In fact, its the exact opposite. If you ever have a question it isn't awkward or uncomfortable. All the songs I learn fit in my music taste and the way he teaches is very simple and I feel like i have made an incredible amount of progress. I can't wait for next lesson!"

"I started studying with Dave at the young age of 15. Under his care, he instilled in me a passion for music and the drums that I don’t think I would’ve gotten anywhere else. Because of him, I entered into Berklee College of Music as a competent MUSICIAN, never mind drummer. If you’re serious about learning how to play drums, you want an instructor whose passion is infectious, who will inspire you to want to get better after every lesson. I can’t recommend anyone higher than I recommend Dave."

"Highly recommend Kevin! Just started drums and did 2 months of lessons with him at his in-home studio. Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!"

"Michael has been teaching drums to my 6-year-old son for the past 5 months. He has been really great to work with. My son loves going to his lessons, where he always has fun. Michael's demeanor is perfect for my son, keeping the lesson light and breezy in tone, but making sure he is always learning proper technique and advancing his skills.

Michael is very flexible, always working with us to adjust the schedule when needed. We rented drums at first (which we were able to do through Michael - I asked, he provided; no pressure sales), but when we were ready to purchase, he helped us find the right set. Michael even helped us get a reduced price through a local music store.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Michael. The best testimony that I can give is that my son loves to practice his drums every day, without having to be asked!"
