Private Drum Teacher

I'm a Berklee alum who was fortunate to study with Alan Dawson, and still use a lot of what I learned from him in my teaching. I've toured around the world playing drums as well as recording on both coasts and CO, and I most recently taught at the Aurora School of Rock for 4 1/2 years. I tailor each lesson individually for each student to make the learning experience unique and educational. You won't learn if it isn't fun, and I make it fun.

About Carl

Hi, I've been playing drums since I was 13 and have gotten to play all over the US, up in Canada and in Japan. I've recorded many albums and still record to this day. Before I decided to do the teaching and recording thing from home, I taught for over 4 years at the Aurora CO School of Rock, so I

Carl gave my daughter drum lessons over the course of a few years and I can honestly say after every lesson she had she had something good to say. Carl is a very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor and watching my daughter's skill level increase because of his instruction was great. I highly recommend Carl as an instructor.
Brittany
Carl is a wonderful instructor! He was able to help our very shy daughter progress from basic drums to more advanced drums, culminating in performance ready songs. She always enjoyed his instruction and has positive feedback on her time with Carl.

Instruction also includes how to play correctly so as not to develop negative playing habits. In the case that you have developed negative playing habits, how to correct them.

Emphasis is also placed on proper warm up techniques, stretching exercises, holding the sticks correctly, posture, plus drum kit "throne" seat placement, and correct stance, if playing concert snare or percussion. Independence is also developed through simple easy to grasp exercises. In addition, drum exercises are individually tailored to the particular needs of each student.

Chuck has also developed a special ear training method utilizing CD and MP3 technology. This method reduces the amount of time it normally takes to develop good listening skills. These listening skills decrease the time that it takes to learn new songs, and learn how to interact with other musicians.

Chuck is a very talented and experienced teacher, he makes the classes relax , entretained and fun. He is very insightful and detects my kid strength and weakness. I have seen my kid improving in his drum skill that eventually would take him to the next level.

Chuck is a fantastic teacher! He is really patient but also pushes me to go beyond what I think I can do. He is very systematic and fundamental, which has given me a great foundation in my rhythm skills.

I've attended a number of masterclasses and group lessons with Andy in the past, and every learning experience has been enriching and engaging! He delves into the topic at hand with an all around approach, discussing history, pedagogical style, musical understanding, and of course, deliberate execution. When I'm working on my own, I often think back to many of the concepts he taught me, especially in regards to technique and mindfulness. As a music student, I'm grateful to be able to learn from him and am looking forward to arranging one-on-one lessons in the future!
Alex
Andy is a thoughtful, encouraging, and insightful instructor who is well versed in his studies of classical, world, orchestral, and chamber music amongst others. In his time filling in at Lawrence University while my primary instructor was on sabbatical, he gave me tips on how to internalize the "feel" of my repertoire, make my playing more efficient, increase my dynamic control on both mallet and battery instruments, and introduced me to the Afro-Colombian style of drumming. Andy's ability to cater to each student's individual needs and lesson curriculum is extremely impressive and inspiring.
Jonathan
As a percussionist studying in college, Andy is anything a student could ever ask for in terms of percussion expertise. Around UW Milwaukee, he gives excellent master classes and is able to lead full class sessions that delve into a LARGE array of topics. This may already be a selling point, but one on one lessons with Andy are outstanding. Mastery of many styles and instruments make it easy for Andy to give lessons on almost anything, including drumset, classical percussion, congas, etc. Great instructor!!

Online Drum Teacher

I'm excited, passionate, and eager to teach drums. I think a review on my Google business are a good place to start:
"Nithin is a phenom drum instructor. He’s super professional, organized and encouraging - three traits that are extremely important to me. Professional - timely, super knowledgable about the drums, and focused. Organized - had a series planned for each lesson and filmed them during the class so I could return to them later. Encouraging - understood the difficulty of learning new techniques and encouraged me to try to push through the discomfort, which often lasted for less time than I expected."

About Nithin

Hello! My name is Nithin and I have been a drum teacher for over 20 years! I have spent the past 7 years touring the world as both the drummer and bass player for critically-acclaimed, and current Late Night with Seth Meyers guitarist, Marnie Stern. My curriculum is specially designed to make drum
