Drum Set: Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop, Country Western and World Music.

About Douglas
Originally from New York City, I started playing drums when I was 10 years old and studied with studio/Broadway drummer Roger Mancuso. After graduating from Ohio University, I studied and was managed by the famous studio drummer/author Gary Chester. As a full-time working musician I have played on many national commercials, Broadway, off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway shows. I was signed for three years to Carrere Records, a subsidiary of Warner Bros./Reprise Records. I have toured Europe and most of the USA with acts such as Luther Allison, Johnny Winter, Big Bill Morganfield, Bo Diddley, Joey Dee, Gary US Bonds, Zoot Sims, Jeremy Steig, Bobby Lewis, Alex Chilton (From The Box Tops), Eddie Brigati (From The Young Rascals), Johnny Rivers, Little Anthony (From The Imperials) and many more.

I also founded the Columbus, Ohio band The Drift
er Kings. Whose debut CD, "Diamonds On The Desert Floor", was produced by Alligator recording artist Michael Hill. The CD was nominated by the Blues Foundation of Memphis, Tennessee as a top-5 finalist at the 2011 International Blues Challenge and has been receiving airplay on stations across North America, South America, and Europe as well as being honored as a pick to click on Sirius/ XM's B.B. Kings Bluesville. It was also featured as a winner of Blues Revue Magazine's Sponsor the Bands Contest in the May/ June 2011 issue.

I have been teaching since 1978 and many of my students have gone on to pursue professional music careers. I am a very well-rounded musician and teacher, experienced in many aspects of musical training and performance. I have worked with every age level, from the beginner to advanced student, in one-on-one as well as classroom settings. I am patient and will bring out the best in my students. You will definitely benefit from my years of musical experience.

My son is three lessons in with Doug. He has enjoyed them. Doug explains things to him, jokes around with him, and keeps the lessons fun. He understands that my son is a beginner and focuses the lessons accordingly. We are pleased with the instruction.

About Charles
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Funk, pop, and classical.

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.

Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son. We highly recommend Charles!

I've been teaching drums and percussion for 10 years and my students have gone on to be accepted into top ensembles, record and produce tracks of their own, and have performance careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic rhythms on the drum set, and start recognizing different stylistic patterns. You'll also develop a strong sense of time. As time goes on you'll be able to play along to any song just by listening, and even create your own drum groove to new music! I specialize in rock, pop, and funk styles, typically use Joel Rothman's drum books as well as my own PDFs. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Zachary
My name is Zach L. I am a professional musician in the Miami area. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Guitar Performance from the University of Miami. I am a multiple Downbeat-award-winning guitarist and have been drumming for the past 13 years. I have headlined multiple international tours and received both the Duncan Nelson Scholarship and the Davidson Scholarship at the University of Miami. Furthermore, I am also an accomplished composer and arranger with my works featured by groups such as the Steve Miller Band and the Henry Mancini Orchestra. Lastly, I have held a teaching position as the Professor of Improvised Music at the Narnia Arts Academy International Summer Course in Central Italy.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students' lessons are tailored to their individual needs. I don't teach out of a book (though I do use books to supplement
material when helpful), so students will only be learning what *they* need to be learning next, based on their unique blend of skill, experience, and curiosity. With that in mind, here are some topics on which we tend to focus.

Guitar Lessons:
-Proper Technique. (How to hold a pick. Proper ways to apply pressure to the strings with the left hand. Tension-free technique to prevent injury and strain.)
-Chord Formations. (Bar chords, Power chords, Open chords, Triads and inversions, CAGED system chords, Seventh chords, Advanced jazz voicing, Chords in alternate tuning.)
-Scales/Arpeggios. (Proper fingering to build technical skill. Three note per string scale forms. Conventional scale forms. Cross-fretboard patterns. Seeing arpeggios from different scale degrees. Pattern manipulation.)
-Reading Music. (One position reading. Multi-position reading. Sight reading practice. Understanding rhythmic variation. Ledger line studies. Dollahon 10th position method for sight reading.)
-Repertoire. (Songs in genre(s) of preference. Learning to play songs from favorite artists. Learn to accompany yourself if you sing.)
-Ear Training. (Hearing melodic phrases. Identifying chords. Transcription projects. Learning to "play by ear".)
-Rhythm Training. (Differentiate between different rhythms. Metronome work. Keeping solid time. Develop ability to clap/strum/pick a variety of rhythms with good time.)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two small jazz amplifiers, five guitars ranging from acoustic to electric to archtops, and an 88-key electric piano for music theory lessons.

Zach is an excellent teacher! He has such a thorough understanding of music, and plenty of experience teaching it. Taking lessons with him are both super fun and super informative. He's got a knack for making complex things seem simple and is really easy to work with. I highly recommend taking lessons with Zach for anyone wanting to take their playing to the next level.

Zach takes the time to understand precisely what I want to accomplish with my playing, and why, and I feel that the lessons have progressed logically and quickly. Most importantly, he is a wonderful listener and patient with my ceaseless questions of 'why' and 'how'. I leave each session with greater enthusiasm and a genuine sense of accomplishment.

This is how learning should work.

I have been teaching private drum lessons for 5 years and enjoy sharing personal experiences. I have taught lessons to students of various ages and levels and have helped them learn how to read music, obtain good hand posture, develop their techniques and build their free command and independence on the drums. In addition, I can include standard repertoire, sight reading and critical listening. I find that a combination of classic fundamentals and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy their instrument and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. I am very patient with students and parents and enjoy helping them comprehend exercises and musical concepts that they might be struggling with. Finally, I hope to help teach students what it takes to become a great musician as well as how to steer past some common roadblocks. 

With all my students, I first assess their skill level, ability and goals to then create a custom lesson program to best suit their needs. ...

Before we get into my lesson structure, a little about me and why I know I can help.

I am a full-time musician and music producer. I started playing percussion in 6th grade, which was 14 years ago. Since then, I've literally immersed myself in music about as much as you can!

I've competed in honor and all-state band for 7 years in a row throughout middle and high school, was 1 of 6 awarded into the Governor's Honors program for percussion in 2010, and was the only recipient of a jazz drum set scholarship at Georgia College in 2011. Our high school percussion ensemble was one of the top competing schools in the state and so was our indoor drumline during 2007-2011.

Music has always been my life. I was INCREDIBLY lucky to have been fostered and taught by some of the most passionate and selfless music teachers in the state. Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way ...

About Joey
Lots of info below!! I'm a jack of all trades! And wanted to be as descriptive as possible for your benefit.

In gist, here's are the skills I can teach you exceptionally well:

- Music Production
- Drumset / drumming
- DJing

Before we get into my lesson structure, a little about me and why I know I can help. Why should you listen to me if I don't know my background? :)

I am a full-time music producer, musician, and DJ. I started playing percussion in 6th grade, which was 14 years ago. Since then, I've literally immersed myself in music about as much as you can!

I've competed in honor and all-state band for 7 years in a row throughout middle and high school, was 1 of 6 awarded into the Governor's Honors program for percussion in 2010, and was the only recipient of a jazz drum set scholarship at Georgia College in 2011. Our
high school percussion ensemble was one of the top competing schools in the state and so was our indoor drumline during 2007-2011.

As far as music production goes, it's now my main focus. I started learning the ins and outs of music production in high school in 2010. Since then, I've taken courses in music technology throughout college, made music as a hobby, then took the full leap in January of 2016. I'm on the journey now and since that time I've had some pretty amazing things happen. I produce music almost every day, so everything you learn from me is what's current and what works!

Music has always been my life. I was INCREDIBLY lucky to have been fostered and taught by some of the most passionate and selfless music teachers in the state. Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way and help students learn to discover what they truly love?

I DJ as well. It's been amazing to DJ for over 20 weddings in the last year alone. I don't only do weddings, I also DJ around the city in clubs and venues every month. Started with the decks in 2011.

Flash forward to today and I'm hustling harder than ever. After graduating from The University of Georgia in 2015 with a degree in Management and Music Business, and a minor in Music Technology, I am a full-time, touring music producer and DJ. I reside in Virginia Highlands (very safe, family-friendly area) in Atlanta and have my own house, studio, and drum set, in which I can tutor you. In person - or online!




My expertise:

* Drumming / Drum Set
* Music Production (Ableton)
* DJing (Serato)

-----------------------------------------

DRUMS

Because of my extensive background in percussion, I can teach the fundamentals of drumming, whether on a pad or on drum set.



Drumming styles I can teach: 
Jazz, Latin
, Funk
, Rock
, Swing

, Metal, Classical

Drumming techniques I can teach: 
Syncopation
, Chop-Building Exercises, Coordination
, Double-Bass Drum technique, Rudiments, prep for Honor Band or All- State, scales on the piano

Can even teach you the drum part to just about any song! Yes really, if that's what you want!

Years of teaching experience:
 2 


Years of playing experience: +14

---------------------------------------------

MUSIC PRODUCTION

Minored in Music Technology at The University of Georgia.

What I know and can teach:
- Producing tracks start to finish
- Navigating and understanding Ableton
- Using legal samples in your music to help you
- Songwriting
- Mixing your tracks
- Workflow techniques
- Song structure
- Advice from one seasoned music producer to another!

I've been through a lot of work and stressful times to figure out what works and what doesn't. Let my experience be of benefit to you, so that I can shorten your learning curve :)

I've written an article on music production workflow that was published by Heroic Academy. A record label named Gravitas Create interviewed me recently, regarding how to finish music. I can send those to you if you want.

Years of teaching experience: 1

Years of career experience: 3

-----------------------------------------

DJING

DJing and producing music go hand in hand these days. I started DJing in college for fun and for cash as a broke college student. That was back in 2011.

Flash forward to today and weddings, private events, and my own DJ gigs are the main way I make most of my income. I have 4 weddings booked already in October alone, some booked for 2019, and have done over 20 weddings in the last year.

I run my own Wedding DJ business with dozens of 5 star reviews ("OnCue Events" on weddingwire). And the DJ that I sub-contract under is one of Atlanta's top DJ's. Luckily, he was my mentor!

Check my weddingwire profile here if you would like:
bit.ly/oncueevents

If you're not interested in weddings, no fear. Those are great fun and a way to earn some money. But what's even more fun is playing your own shows. I've been lucky enough to have just signed with a booking agency for my artist name, Pure Colors, so I think I can teach you a thing or two about how to slay the dancefloor!

Here's what I know:

- How to DJ in Serato (currently using)
- How to DJ in Traktor
- Ableton DJing (less proficient)

Why I actually know what I'm doing:

I do this all the time. It's taken years of practice to become a great DJ. I used to think it was easy, but I've come to learn that with most skills in life, anyone can be okay and call themselves a DJ. But if you want to really get a grasp for how to professionally DJ, make smooth transitions, beat match amazingly (without using the sync-button...), read a crowd, learn new techniques and prep your tracks, and other things I haven't mentioned, well...

I can help!

Where I've played:

- Aisle 5 (Atl)
- Terminal West (Atl)
- 3 music festivals in 2018, (Athens Ga, Tennesee, Sparta Ga)
- 2 self-promoted events at Speakeasy Atl

A lot of people come out to these shows. Anyway, I hope that helps put some trust in me, that's the point of all this info.

Genres I DJ, and therefore what I can teach:

- House music (deep house, disco house, jackin house, funky house, downtempo house, G house)
- Disco
- Funk
- Pop and Top 40
- Oldschool
- Rap / Hip-hop

Have any questions?

We'll go over all the basics if you're new to it, or I can teach more advanced lessons to those looking to get out of the bedroom and into the club. Let's talk! :)

· Ableton · In studio
Always wanted to get into music production for the longest time, so I downloaded Ableton and decided to give it a go....and it looked like hieroglyphics to me. I tried to watch some youtube videos on the matter and it still made no sense. So I did some research and figured that an in-person teacher would probably be my best bet.

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.

I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me.
