My drum lessons are the most fun for many reasons. I focus you on the music you love, stay as far away from boring material as possible, while teaching you the most important aspects of drumming such as technique, hand positions, posture, pocket, feel, timing, ect. But I use music as the guidance system. We will cover drum rudiments, we will cover different genres like Rock, Pop, Metal, Hip Hop, Classic Rock, Reggae, EDM. We will have a blast.

Jason instructs my 6 year old son on a weekly basis, via FaceTime. He’s fantastic. The drum lessons have been a great way to keep my kid engaged in learning music during the pandemic. Jason is patient and thorough and keeps my child focused and happy. If you’re lucky enough to get room on Jason’s schedule, take it!

Craig tailors lessons to the needs and goals of the individual student whether they are a beginner or an advanced student. Being able to work with the students to reach their full potential by giving them a strong vocabulary and command on the instrument are areas he is able to shine on them, but more importantly make it fun while they are learning the instrument.

Really couldn't ask for more. Craig's been working with my daughter for years and we couldn't be happier.
Stephanie
I came to Craig as an adult, with little to no musical training and was hesitant to take lessons because I had no idea what expect. In the time I have worked with him I have learned to sight read, play along to songs , have a strong grasp on the fundamentals and work on improvisation. He continually challenges me to try new things and expand my vocabulary. As an instructor Craig is professional, non judgmental, patient and is an experienced teacher. A lot of people can play drums, being able to teach others is an entirely different skill.
Billie
Craig has been working with our son for over 5 years. He is an exceptional instructor. Our son had no previous drum lessons prior to working with Craig. Our son really enjoys his lessons with Craig and has really excelled. We would highly recommend Craig

Online Drum Teacher

Hey everyone! My name is Bobby, I'm a 30-year-old Salt Lake native. I studied at Westminster College and have a minor in Orchestral percussion.

I've been teaching for over 7 years both young and old students and I'm looking to teach beginner/intermediate drum students.

I focus on teaching students to learn how to read drum music, drum kit, beats, fills, songs, and rudiments.

Thank you so much for looking!

Bobby is amazing and accomplished. The kindness and encouragement he has shown my son is unparalleled. We will be continuing our lessons with him! Thanks man!
Nathan
Bobby's a very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable drummer who also knows how to teach well. Often times musicians don't always know how to teach their craft, talented as they may be, but Bobby certainly knows both how to play and how to teach. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their drumming skills.
Matt R.
Bobby has a wealth of knowledge and passion about music and can help you learn how to play your favorite songs on drums from any genre (alternative, indie, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classic rock, dance and more). 2 months ago, I knew nothing about drums, and in just 9 lessons so far I can now play a handful of songs and grooves. I learn so much each lesson, and Bobby does everything he can to help me succeed. I highly recommend Bobby.

"Great teacher with a lot of passion!!

I started taking lessons with Casey about 8 months ago. He is the third drum teacher I've had and I definitely won't be looking for another one! He has a lot of patience but is always striving to make me work harder and be a better musician. He is passionate about what he does and it shows! I've learned and grown as a musician significantly faster with Casey than any of my previous teachers. He makes the hard work fun! I would absolutely recommend him to beginners and intermediate players as well! He is a lot of fun and he's flexible! Try him out, you'll be rockin' in no time!"

"David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!"

"Wow! For someone who was completely new to drums and understanding rhythm , Ross was absolutely perfect for what I needed. His attention to detail shows just how knowledgable he is of his craft, and makes hard matters easy to understand! (even a 6 year old could understand him)

His professionalism strives even through online classes, because he's so keen on making sure you understand the context.

Would HIGHLY recommend!"

How to Read Drum Sheet Music | How to Play Drums

Think drummers don't need to read music? Think again! Drum sheet music is a great way to learn your favorite beats and write things out so you will remember them later. Drum sheet music is written on the same five line staff as traditional music. At the beginning of the piece, you'll see the time signature. Written like a fraction (4/4 or 7/8, for example), the time signature lets you know how many beats to play in each measure and what the rhythm should be. You should also see the number of …
