Private Drum Teacher

I have over 10 years experience teaching drums to all different ages. I received the “Outstanding Youth Advocate” award from Berklee College of Music's Community Affairs Dept. in 2014 for teaching at the Boys&Girls Club in Allston, MA. I perform a lot around the northeast U.S., spanning a diverse spectrum of styles.

If desired, I can teach out of several books - including Garwood Whaley - Musical Studies for Intermediate Snare Drummer, Charley Wilcoxon - The All-American Drummer: 150 Rudimental Solos, Charles Dowd - Funky Primer for the Rock Drummer, and Tommy Igoe - Groove Essentials 1.0+2.0

Or I can teach without any books as I have a wealth of knowledge in me!

I teach rudiments, hand+foot techniques, coordination exercises, grooves - stemming from rock to funk to jazz, bossa nova, samba, west african, and much more.

Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.

Josh is an awesome teacher. He is patient and supportive and always comes up with ways to connect me to the concept he’s teaching. I asked to learn drums “the right way” so we spend a ton of time on fundamental exercises that i suspect are boring for him but he never shows it. He is always upbeat and positive and I enjoy our lessons a lot. Could not recommend him more highly.

Private Drum Teacher

My lessons focus on musicality and execution in a professional setting. I have played with a huge variety of artists, including Joan Baez, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Emmylou Harris, Glen Hansard, and Bob Weir. I also earned a jazz degree and played around NYC for 20 years. My advanced lessons explore the intersection of technique and music, while my beginner lessons focus more on individual interests and how to achieve our musical goals.

About Liam

I have been playing professionally since 1992, in every setting imaginable. From coffee bars to Carnegie Hall, I have played them all. I have supported and collaborated with famous artists like Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Glen Hansard, and Bob Weir, and spent 10 years on the road touring the US and

I was very impressed with how Ryan engaged my son during his first lesson. He was able to make it fun and educational for him. I think what made a huge difference was his ability to hone in on what what kinds on music my son was interested in and some how work it in to the initial lesson plan. He showed him how much fun it could be and then was able to incorporate the basics from there. Also, he is extremely patient and laid back making it stress free. Thank you for a great lesson! We look forward to continuing more.

We scheduled Ryan to come to our house at a specific time to teach our 15 YO son. He did not show up and called 2 hours after the scheduled time to say he was misinformed by Take Lessons as to the time (even though we had confirmed the time at the beginning). We planned to resume the following week and again he did not show up. He did not reply to texts, his voicemail was not set up on his phone and he made no efforts to let us know that he had cancelled with us.

What a flake and a disappointment!

Online Drum Teacher

I have been teaching drums since 2003, and I start my students using The Drumset Musician, by Rick Mattingly and Rod Morgenstein. I also choose materials, from my extensive library, to address the needs of each individual. I am familiar with rock, country, blues, jazz, and world grooves, as well as marching band and orchestra. I teach the components of and purposes of voices within the set, proper grip, reading music, coordination, and feel. I also teach students how to analyze and map songs, so they can excel in a band setting. If a student is wanting to be in marching and symphonic bands, I can prepare them for those pursuits, as well. I have two sets in my studio, as well as abundant hand and auxiliary percussion instruments.

About Tracy

I have been playing the drum set in various bands since 2001. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class, private lessons, and I have been a full time music teacher in

"Josh is the absolute most attentive music teacher any of my kids have ever had. He spoke with my son in a manner that was welcoming, understandable and patient! No temperament at all. He praised at the right times to encourage my son and quickly corrected issues. The lesson continued without breaks for the whole hour plus, but seemed like 15 minutes. I was incredibly impressed and also had a very entertaining time as I learned about drums in the process. Also, my son has ADHD. I thought my son would have trouble focusing. But with Josh's innate ability to work with him, the ADHD never was an issue. I would totally recommend Josh to anyone wanting to learn drums. Absolutely great session. Also, getting a sampling of his drumming skills was so very cool to see."
