Learning a lot about the guitar

I started out with no experience playing guitar. Within a few weeks Stevie has taught much of the fundamentals. I am now feeling confident as I play my instrument.

He's always on time and has excellent communication skills.

I would definitely recommend Stevie to anyone interested in learning about music.

Online Drum Teacher

The things students would expect from me in a lesson would be the concept of keeping time with a metronome. Playing grooves that the student enjoys to hear. Using rudiments which would build creativity in the students playing. Exercises that building the strength of the student's wrist . The basic concepts of reading sheet music . And mainly to have fun playing over songs the student loves listening to.

Sam is an awesome teacher. His style of teaching makes learning the music AND the theory behind it a lot of fun! One of his best abilities is that he can understand questions really well. I have a lot of long, crazy, seemingly nonsensical, confusing, rambling questions, and he is able to ANSWER them all! I am continually astounded! He's assisted me in making a lot of progress, because of that skill, and others, such as patience and articulation, and demonstration. I would recommend him.
S
Sam is a fantastic drum instructor! He has the expertise to teach both beginners (like my child) and advanced students. His personality is winsome and friendly, firm yet kind. He explains music theory in an extremely accessible way - convincing his student why the theory “stuff” makes musical expression even more fun.
Tiffany
Sam is an amazing teacher! He’s so easy going (so my kids feel comfortable, able to ask questions and ask for input). This is great for confidence building! He’s also extremely knowledgeable and able to inspire the creative artist within your child. He gives concrete, helpful instructions on how to improve and practice each week. My kids always have a plan for their week which makes improvement a no-brainer. My kids have improved by leaps and bounds since taking lessons from Sam. They love the skill and artistry they are attaining and love their lessons from Sam. Great guy, great teacher. You will not be disappointed!!!

We will develop solid time, technique, reading, and rudiments. To foster musicality we will focus on critical listening . We will focus on effective practicing to maximize our efforts. We will learn to apply rudiments and stickings around the drums for interesting and dynamic fills. We will play together to focus on listening and ensemble skills. We also have the ability to record our lessons for later review.

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.
