I am a professional musician with years of experience playing the drum set. I emphasize having a strong foundation in the basics of drumming and making sure that students are well equipped for whatever musical situation they may find themselves in. I teach my students how to read music, play the rudiments, and how to play a variety of styles.
I love music and teaching and I look forward to getting to know you!

I have had years of experience playing drums professionally as well as teaching a wide range of students. I graduated from Manhattan School of Music where I studied with the great teacher John Riley. I’ve also studied with Kendrick Scott, Michael Carvin, and Rodney Green. I teach about hand technique, reading skills, different styles of drumming, improvisation, as well as music theory. If you have a passion for learning drums, then I would love to teach you.

Jeanae’
Highly recommend Ronen as a drum instructor! I recently started to take lessons for the first time at the age of 52. Ronen has made this experience so much fun. He is so knowledgeable, extremely patient and understanding. He balances each lesson with not only teaching technical skill but also the history of various drum techniques which makes it so interesting. He is a great teacher and it is a privilege to take lessons from him!

Mr. Blackwell is very kind and is an amazing teacher. He takes time to help me understand music especially the theory sections. He is not just a music teacher but he is an excellent mentor.
Paul
Luther has been very helpful at teaching me the basics while also making sure we move at a pace in which I am comfortable before jumping into any new exercises. I look forward to having him as a teacher for a long time.
Brian Gee
When I was 53, I decided that I would like to learn how to play the bass guitar. I contacted Mr. Blackwell to see if he would be interested in teaching an older person how to play music. Mr. Blackwell told me that he could teach me how to play and my age is not an issue. I still remember my first lesson. I showed up with a music book and Mr. Blackwell said we are not going to use a book at this time because he wanted to teach me what I needed to know for my skill level, which by the way was novice! Three years later, not only can I play the bass, read music and improvise as needed, I play in a band and we are on the radio! If you are thinking of learning music or want to advance your music skills, Mr. Blackwell is the teacher that you are looking for! Bravo Mr. Blackwell!

"Joan taught my son from first time to an advanced beginner. She was very patient and extremely helpful. My son was fully engaged in his lessons and always enjoyed his time with Joan. Joan was very dependable, always on time for lessons and always flexible with her scheduling. She also assisted in purchasing a drumset for my son. I would recommend Joan to anyone looking to learn the drums."

"Highly recommended!

Andrew is an outstanding drum teacher. I took lessons from him for about two years when he was based in Los Angeles. He is well-versed in a variety of teaching styles and I was always amazed by his skill whenever he improvised on the drum set. His ability to break complicated sequences into more digestible pieces was immensely helpful and was invaluable when tackling more challenging beats. He is also an exceptionally patient and encouraging teacher.

He is very receptive to teaching students what they are interested in learning. One of the parts of my lessons I looked forward to was applying what I had learned that class by playing along to some of my favorite songs.

Andrew was very flexible and willing to accomodate my ever-changing schedule. Really personable and funny, too!

I was bummed to hear he was moving to the east coast. If he were still in LA, I would absolutely still be taking lessons from him!"

He sets a positive example, has excellent technical knowledge and theory, provides clear, easy to understand lessons, and allows our son to express his own interests and develop his own style of drumming. Our son is excited to see Evan each week, and looks forward to sharing his new skills with the family.

"Our son looks forward to lessons with Steve!

Steve is a great drum teacher! He has been working with my son for almost a year. He is very patient and has a nice sense of humor (which is necessary when training kids).

He conducts a review with my son at the start of each session and offers words of encouragement throughout. After the lesson is over, Steve always confers with me and objectively reviews the lesson's achievements, parts to work on, and goals for next week. Our family recommends him for young and adult students!"
