Drum Lessons & Classes in Travis - Chelsea

I have been a drummer my whole life. I started at the age of six and have two degrees in percussion performance.
My name is Noel B., and I am a musician living and working in New York City.
When teaching a new student I employ many different methods. To me, music is about playing with people. Its important to be able to play by yourself but there are things you just can't learn unless you play with people. I liken it to taking soccer lessons but never playing on a team. Also, its important to perform. All of my students are invited to perform at a venue with a grand piano that professional musicians in the city play. This really helps the students and I set goals, and achieve them. I also use some method books, theory and other things, but just making it about playing makes the lessons much much more fun and inspiring for the students.
I currently teach at two music schools apart from my Private studio. O
I hope to inspire others to pursue a musical life. No matter how serious and long, or short and light.
One of my ultimate goals in teaching is to help my students develop the skills and knowledge to not only be able to play well, but to also be able to teach themselves (and hopefully others in the future). Thank you for your time! Have a great day!

Noel has an extremely diverse background in much that goes well beyond the guitar - He's an awesome drummer as well. This made the lessons even more interesting since he could offer perspective from the drummer's point of view, stressing how important rhythm is to becoming a solid guitarist.
On top of everything else, one of the things I like the most about taking lessons with Noel is that sitting down with him is like sitting in on a jam session - a pretty cool feeling for someone who's somewhat new to music, but has always wanted to learn.

My teacher is amazing. A master professional in his musical field. He teaches like he's done it for decades, even though so young. I would dare to say he can teach with his eyes close. I love all his teaching techniques, from theory to scale, to practicing the Hanon Studies, to ear training and on. I like how he plays along with me while teaching me a new musical score. He completely dedicated to teaching his student and making sure his pupil is satisfied with his performance. He'll even help you with preparing you for an recital or musical event. He knows how. I highly recommend for teaching any pupil from age 3 to 92. He'll ask me what I want to do next, and then we look for scores that I can learn according to my level.. He's attention to your needs as a student and works around it. I always look forward to going to my next lesson and see how I improved and what's new score he's prepare for me to learn.
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.

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. Twenty years later here I am, a professional freelancing percussionist and teacher. The journey to where I am was a long and winding one but I can't imagine it any other way. After learning basic drumming in elementary sch
If you choose me as a teacher, I will shape you as an overall musician, not just a "Drummer". What this means is that you won't just learn beats from me, you will learn all the fundamentals of basic to intermediate music theory, from note reading and rhythm to chord changes and ..... You will start on a practice pad and quickly go to a drum kit. Lessons will be half and half, but more 75/25 drumkit, because everything you learn on a pad can translate to the kit! I would also teach you timpani and xylophone if you like so you can broaden your horizons and even get into the middle/high school or college you want. I have most of my books of pdf that I can give you to print or you can purchase your own copies. You would also need to purchase a practice pad and eventually a drum kit. If you don't want to purchase a drum kit then there is almost no reason to study it since you won't be able to practice between lessons. Practicing, let's talk about that. It is expected that you practice the material we learn in the lesson throughout the week. Now I know everyone is busy, but if you can put aside 25 minutes (a sitcom without commercials!!) a day then you will have a better understanding and better retention of the material. Doing this will let us just review the material a little bit and go on to learn new and exciting things.
The bottom line in choosing me? I am a professional musician in the trenches of the nyc music scene and know what it takes to make it.

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over fifteen years and teaching for about 12. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels (lessons at my studio will be on electronic kit).
I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.
*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

By the end of their first lesson, students will be able to play a basic drum beat along to music!
Drum lessons are structured around the development of four basic skills: technique, groove, reading, and musicianship. Lessons are also flexible enough to be tailored to the interests and needs of each individual student. Most importantly, I make it a priority that the student leaves each lesson having learned how to apply what was taught in a musical setting.
I've been playing drums for 15+ years and have studied with the following great drummers: Jeffrey Kraus, Peter Jarvis, Joel Rosenblatt, Kimberly Thompson, Dom Famularo, and Stephane Chamberland.
Throughout high school and college, I played in percussion ensembles and rock bands, performing throughout New York City and New London. Currently, I write and play my own music for a solo project called East River Soundtracks.
I offer drum lessons for beginners that cover all of the basics necessary for you to become not only a great drummer but a great MUSICIAN. The curriculum will consist of four main pillars: technique, groove, reading, and musicianship.
I absolutely LOVE this instrument and am excited to help you get started on it!

I have been working with students of all ages and levels for over 26 years and have learned something meaningful from each and every one them. Nothing makes me happier when I see them getting into great schools and acquiring lucrative jobs that make them happy, My students walk away with tools to not just play a musical instrument but a skill set strong enough to tackle any task.
I am equally versed in performing on and teaching drum-set (Pop, Rock, Jazz, Latin etc...), all the percussion instruments of the orchestra (ask about my state of the art recording studio where all of these instruments live), and hand drums including congas, bongos, Djembe etc... Anything you can strike scrape or shake is available for study either online or at my studios.

Unlike most other music teachers, I believe the student should set their own goals. If you want to play in a band, I can give you the tools you need. If you want to learn to read and write music and be the virtuoso you can be, we’ll work towards that. If you want to learn a few chords or melodies for your own enjoyment, that’s fine too. I’ve learned in over half a lifetime of playing and through teaching students of all ages and levels in both private and group lesson environments that no two people are the same. That’s why I work out a personalized curriculum to help make the most of our time together and help you achieve your goals.
I am a patient, thoughtful drum set teacher who has worked with students of all ages. I work on tailoring each lessons to a particular students needs and goals. I also work to develop a good fundamental base of applicable theory and drumming technique with each student. I am open to teaching many different styles of drumming such as:
Additionally I can teach specific African, Cuban, and Brazilian rhythmic concepts as well as free improvisation.
I have studied with jazz legend Eddie Marshall as well as classical percussion with William Winant. I also have a good general knowledge of music theory which is very helpful when trying to figure out songs or compositions. I have studied composition and improvisation with many incredible musicians such as Roscoe Mitchell, Ben Goldberg, and Hafez Modirzadeh. I additionally have a BA in jazz performance from S.F. State and a MFA from Mills College in music performance.
