Specializing in drumset and marching band technique/skills. I will work with students on all aspects of drumming to ensure a well rounded education while adapting the lesson to each individual. Great match for most levels of skill and experience! Drumset available for use during lesson.

About Joseph
I have been playing music for over 20 years. I have been a successful part of Rock Bands, Jazz Bands, Blues Bands, Marching Bands, etc. So, whatever style of music you are interested in or wanting to learn, I can help!

I am also a Certified Personal Trainer with a Fitness Nutrition Specialist Certification. I have been Personal Training for over 2 years. I personally have struggled with weight for most of my life. Through that struggle I have developed a true passion for nutrition, fitness, health, and weight loss. I am eager to spread my knowledge and experience to others and help you reach any goals you may have!

On top of that, I have spent the past 6+ years honing my skills for Training, Coaching, and Developing. So, I can promise two things. You will get results and you will have FUN!

I will design your training aro
und you and your goals......not mine!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ultimately, my goal is to make sure you enjoy yourself and want to keep coming back. In that process I will make sure you get results.

I am laid back and very patient. Two qualities I feel are necessary to be successful in this field.

I design my curriculum for each individual. This is because everyone has their own goals, there own level of ability, and their own needs as far as how to get there.

Locations:
1) Rehearsal Studio is my rehearsal studio. I have a full drumset, PA, guitars, and amps available at this location.
2) Apartment is my apartment in Hawthorne. Students are welcome to come here but we have limited options for instrumentation here. Practice Pads, hand drums, and acoustic guitars are the only options at this location.

*** Studio Equipment ***
5 piece Yamaha Drumset with Zildjian Cymbals. PA system. Amps, Guitars, and Keyboards.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have acoustic guitars, a practice pad, and a djembe. I expect my students to have their own drumsticks and, ideally, their own guitar and practice pad or drumset.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock/contemporary & marching band style percussion/drums. I also specialize in folk style guitar and bass.

My drum lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of the student. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" mindset. Beginners will learn basic technique, reading, and coordination. Intermediate and advanced players will learn the skills necessary to take their playing to the next level. Some examples of genres and concepts discussed in lessons are rock, metal/double-kick, jazz, funk/fusion, Latin (Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, etc.), grooves and timekeeping, rudiments, polyrhythms/complex rhythms, 4-way coordination, and odd time signatures.

I utilize various method books, drumless tracks, and other listening examples to further the development of the student. I believe in keeping the atmosphere of lessons fun yet focused. A sense of humor and patience are required to learn such a complex instrument!

I also offer beginner level lessons on piano and guitar.

Lessons are available in the comfort of your home. All ages and skill levels welcome.

About Richard
In 1999, I picked up a pair of drumsticks for the first time and have been hooked ever since. In 2006, I graduated Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Drumset Performance, having studied with Mike Mangini, Dave DiCenso, and Terri-Lyne Carrington, amongst many others. Upon graduating, I've had the privilege of performing with some of New England's top club and GB bands, as well as some original acts in various genres. I've had the honor of performing at functions for Fenway Park, TD Garden, and The Blue Man Group. In 2012, I recorded with the NYC-based rock band The Young Presidents, appearing on several tracks that included Corey Glover (Living Colour), Jake Hertzog (Montreux Jazz Guitar Winner 2006), and Adam Ezra. The recordings were produced by Rob Fraboni (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan)
. You can hear me on tracks 4, 5, 7, & 9 on their album "Coalition".

In addition to gigging, I also maintain a steady private teaching practice. From 2009-2013, I was a guest instructor at Berklee College of Music's annual Percussion Festivals, conducting drumset masterclasses and ensemble classes with mostly high school aged youth. In 2012, I was a counselor/instructor at Camp Jam, working with high school aged kids on bettering their musicianship and assisting them in performing with rock bands. I've also conducted small summer camp masterclasses at Boston Drum Center in Acton.

I still continue to perform and record regularly around New England and parts of New York, as well as teach privately. I also play cajon on some gigs, as well as guitar, piano, and am currently working on writing some original music, as well as several fiction and instructional method books.

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!

I've been teaching Drums since 2004 and recently started back January 2013. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play all rudiments and as time goes on you'll be able to play in bands and in JH and HS bands. I typically use the Haskell Harr, and now include Alfred's Drum Method book for Snare; Tommy Igo for drum-set. His posters from Vic Firth are great resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Paul has been a tremendous instructor for me and my journey on learning acoustic guitar. During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly. I highly recommend him as an instructor!

I can get you through basics and intermediate concepts.

About Nathan
Whatever you want to know about anything... ANYTHING pertaining to guitar or popular music in general, I've got your back! I started teaching in college where I majored in music theory and performance, but was picked up to play guitar in the Texas dancehall band "The Emotions". I never finished my degree being on the road with the band, but as a musician, its all about the experience! I also have the technical "know-how" to make it simple to comprehend advanced concepts that will boost your chops exponentially! If you want to learn how to play your heart out while challenging your mind, I can show you ALL the secrets to mastering guitar... just like the PROS.

Nobody is completely original... If you want to play your absolute best, GET INFLUENCED BY THE BEST PLAYERS!
