Renaud was a great teacher, full of enthusiasm for music and drumming, for passing on his expertise, a lot of fun to learn from and very patient.
He was very flexible with adjusting to my varying schedule.

Renaud is an incredibly patient teacher and works very well with our son. They have a great rapport and Bruno has made huge progress over the last couple of years that he's been working with Renaud. His rates are very reasonable (almost too reasonable!) and he conducts himself always in the most professional manner.

Renaud is a Great Instructor!

My son, Liam, eally enjoys his drum lessons with Renaud. He comes home excited about what he has learned and goes straight to his drums to show us. Renaud is teaching him the fundamentals, as well as challenging him with new rhythms. Liam's ability to read and write music has improved, as well as his speed. We are very pleased.

Private Drum Teacher

After years of playing with some of the best musicians on the planet, as well as learning from the great masters of the past, giving clinics and guiding countless students through their musical paths, I've built gradual methods of internalizing rhythm and movement that are meant to not only help the student learn that which they're pursuing in the most efficient way possible, but inspire them along the way -- cultivating their passion and encouraging them to engage with the material with the type of fascination and curiosity that brings about the best student they can be.

We will be working on knowing where One is, technique and movement around the drums/pad, soloing, harmonic rhythm, as well as any material the student themselves would like to work on.

About Daniel

Touring drummer, educator, multi-instrumentalist, clinician and composer, collaborated with artists such as Avishai Cohen, Pat Metheny, John Patitucci and others, teaching private lessons in Brooklyn. The methods of internalizing rhythm I've developed are intended at providing the student with an

Private Drum Teacher

In general, I work with my students on technique, their ability to play grooves, drum theory, sight reading, developing their sound/style on the kit, and establishing a deeper connection with the drums and music through various exercises and discussions. How I go about teaching these things is relative to where the student is at in their ability to play and understand music.

About Bryce

I’ve been playing music for a total of 13 years and 8 of those years the drums have been my primary instrument. While in high school, I played for the school jazz band and in the pit orchestra f

Online Drum Teacher

I make drumming understandable to someone who has not yet learned the craft. I will give you a series of tests to see what level your natural skill for rhythm is at.

We will work on getting you playing beats from day one. Whatever music you're into we will work on getting you playing that type of music. In addition, I will teach a break down of the basics and what has worked best for me.

Essentially I will implement the rudiments necessary to becoming a well-rounded beat maker. Depending on where you're at with your level of playing I will also play guitar to your drum beats so you're able to really enjoy the playing experience.

About Gregory

Hello, Future beatmakers! My name is Greg and I am here to unleash your hidden potential. If you have a burning desire to learn amazing tried and true methods to get you playing and keeping the beat fast, I'm your guy! I will never make you work harder than you want to, however, I will let you know

"I have been receiving instruction from Keith for several years now. As an older student I appreciate his patience and style of instruction. He has become a great friend and mentor and his knowledge/experience in the drumming realm is boundless. He has a great love for music and in particular drumming. I would HIGHLY recommend him for anyone who wants to learn or take their skills to a higher level. He is a great instructor and a great person !"

"Jim has been a fantastic teacher to our son. He explains everything patiently and approaches his lessons very systematically. He selects songs that incorporate essential drumming skills (e.g. songs that include doubles, paradiddles, accented notes, etc.). This way, the the student is able to develop an understanding of how theory fits practice."

"Passionate about drums; reflected in his teaching

Lou took me by surprise after the first few lessons. His preference is to teach the foundation and basically build up from there. This sort of put me off at first because I wanted to learn a specific genre without all the extras that I thought I didn't need. Fortunately, he was able to help me understand that by learning all of the simple rudiments, I can play anything I want. Now, I haven't reached that stage yet, but I have no doubt that I can get there with Lou's help."

"Michael has been teaching drums to my 6-year-old son for the past 5 months. He has been really great to work with. My son loves going to his lessons, where he always has fun. Michael's demeanor is perfect for my son, keeping the lesson light and breezy in tone, but making sure he is always learning proper technique and advancing his skills.

Michael is very flexible, always working with us to adjust the schedule when needed. We rented drums at first (which we were able to do through Michael - I asked, he provided; no pressure sales), but when we were ready to purchase, he helped us find the right set. Michael even helped us get a reduced price through a local music store.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Michael. The best testimony that I can give is that my son loves to practice his drums every day, without having to be asked!"

Preparing for a Drum Audition: Cruise Ship Musician Gig

A few weeks ago we discussed how to prepare for a gig, but what if you're stuck on the very first step of getting through the audition? Check out this expert advice from DC-area drum teacher Andrew T., who has experience working as a musician for Princess Cruises:   As musicians, most of our gigs stem from informal auditions, which are typically very loose and relaxed. But what happens when you are asked to audition formally for a gig with a large corporation? From 2007 to 2009 I worked …
