My son really enjoyed his first lesson. Looking forward to how he will progress.

David came on time for our schedule lesson and came in ready to go. He helped my son the corrected way to blow trumpet (which he never learn from school) and broke down lesson so that he is not over wheeled. In just first lesson, I can hear the difference in my son's use of trumpet.

Private Drum Teacher

I am a Berklee College of Music Alumni and have years of experience teaching. I started teaching in France, and then taught some classes in Boston. Spent 4 years studying with some of the greatest drummers out there from Rock to Jazz, and HipHop drumming ( James Murphy from the blue man group, Marko Djordjevic, and Omar Hakim), after spending another 4 years studying Jazz in Paris. I have a passion for teaching and transmission. After touring with bands like Lick Neon and playing around the US I felt like I wanted to go back to teaching drums. My teaching is unique, very centered on playing, and less centered on books because to me the best way to learn music is to play by ear and to learn how to listen. I will teach you basics and rudiments, but very quickly I will show you how to use those in a creative and fun way, so that your appetite for learning more keeps growing. I would love to meet you and get you closer to your drum dreams !

About Clement

Teaching means the world to me. Music has been transmitted from generation to generation during the whole history of humanity and to keep music alive, we need people to be fully dedicated to transmitting what they learned to keep music growing, and to empower people to believe in themselves and tha

Nice guy
Easy going and good temperament with my 5 year old.

Being a first time drum student , I took lessons with Clement and he was so patient and really helped me build the confidence that I needed. Although I'm only playing for a hobby, I feel as if I can now call myself a drummer thank you to the guidance as well as the standard that Clement held me too. Also great hip hop producer!
Florence
After having taken some lessons online with various instructors, it is clear to me that Clément has been my best experience. Learning drums online was never easy but I am very busy so that's my only option, and he made sure that I always understood him clearly, sent me some exercises to practice after classes and always encouraged me and made me believe in myself. Still take lessons to this day and now I have my own band ! Thanks Clem :) !!

Online Drum Teacher

I teach drum set and marching percussion, teaching for four years. I teach both tenor and snare drum for marching.

Lessons are tailored to the individual student and their experience, goals, and materials available. Having the respective instrument at the teaching location is preferred, but the minimum materials required are drumsticks, a drum pad, and a stand for the drum pad.

Drum set students should expect to learn the basics of technique and drum set-up. From there, lessons are tailored to the individual student, specifically what genres they are interested in. For beginners, I use "The Best Beginner Drum Book" by Drumeo.

Marching percussion students learn a heavier emphasis on technique, constantly being implemented into lessons. Students learn a variety of musical pieces and see technical and musical growth through each piece.

About Kevin

I've been involved in music since fifth grade loved it since! As a performer, I was heavily involved in my high school's music program being involved in: the advanced jazz band (drum set), advanced choir (baritone), musical pit (drum set/auxiliary percussion), show band (vibraphone/tenor drums), an

Marc is extremely patient and passionate about his teaching. Not only does he emphasize the basic techniques for a beginner like me to master, but also make it fun for me. He also tries to motivate me with music theory and history which definitely help me understand the music better and inspire me to master the basics. Marc has an amazingly amount of knowledge in everything else as well, such as physics etc. that shows up in his teaching from time to time, which makes the learning experience much richer!
Brian L.
Marc is an incredibly friendly drum coach who also knows when to push his students to their limits. He has the rare ability to inspire his students so that they perform to the best of their abilities. If you don't sign up with Marc for your next drum lesson, I would suggest re-evaluating your decisions.
Rafal W.
Marc is a great teacher. Classes are always very friendly and productive. In my case, each class begins with a review of progress/practice, and ends with a meaningful and personalized homework. He is also very flexible, sometimes I had to move my classes around and he's always super responsive and understanding. I knew nothing about drums, and I am happy I decided to begin my journey to learn how to play them, with Marc as a mentor!

"My son is 9 and has been playing for over four years. Keith has done a great job pointing out some fundamental flaws in his technique that would have plagued my son for years. It's been an invaluable experience to work with a teacher that is so good with kids and has a lifetime of knowledge of professional drumming. The stories about the old "rock days" keep it entertaining."

She also was flexible when we needed to change our lesson times from a weekday to a weekend morning time slot and was always on time and very professional.

"Joshua is extremely talented in reaching the student at his/her level. He is extremely positive and looks to connect with his students to give them a panoramic view of music in general and then drills down to how that would relate to the drums.
My son is always excite to see Joshua and looks forward to each lesson. Joshua takes the work out of the lesson and lets the student have fun and explore, all the while teaching basics without it being apparent to the student!

Just a really awesome person and instructor!
