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.

Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

About Joel
I am a fan of a wide variety of music. I am especially fond of music that provides a structure for improvisation and the unexpected results that can arise when musicians allow themselves to explore their instruments without the restrictions that typically more formulaic styles impose. However, I also enjoy music that is incredibly orchestrated and requires exact mechanics and pristine technique. Most of all, I need music to feel generous toward the listener or I lose interest very quickly. Music is a gift. It can change your life if you let it. If you are adventurous and willing to challenge yourself you can find all the treasures of the universe in the mastery of an instrument. Did I mention its a lot of fun? Pick me, you wont be disappointed.

Experienced teacher of 5 years with 15 years professional music experience. Learn to play your favorite songs, and also learn what makes those songs work so well. Students will learn the basics of rhythmic theory and hand technique, as well as advanced songwriting techniques and improvisational methods. Cater to every student's individual strengths, needs, and goals, regardless of age or experience. Every student receives personalized lesson plans in a laid-back learning environment. Specializes in all ages and experience levels. Let's get you on the right path towards true musicianship!

About Jesse
I'm a professional percussionist, pianist, and recording artist born and raised in Woodbridge, VA. I have 15 years of professional music experience, ranging from touring/session work to marching band composition. My life as a musician imbued a unique outlook and philosophy on musicianship and how we learn to play. I pride myself on my personalized approach to each individual student, allowing them to create in a fun, relaxed learning environment.

I have students of all ages, beginner to expert. I work very well with young students, as well as students with special needs. As a teacher and a musician, I firmly believe that music is meant to be a fun and creative exercise. We must invent, reshape, and redefine the standards. I teach students to understand the fundamentals behind their instrument, recognize patterns, and manipulate these bui
lding blocks to create something new. Everyone has different goals and expectations, and my lessons are framed to set any individual along the path to mastery.

As a drum teacher, I teach fundamental concepts like basic hand techniques, counting, introductory rudiments, and more. For more experienced players, I can teach concepts ranging from Latin groove to songwriting as a percussionist to advanced improvisational techniques. I hold the belief that a drummer must be a musician first, so music appreciation is a primary point of learning for all my students. Whether you're just picking up the sticks or you've been playing for years, I'll always be able to unearth new creative potential.

For my piano students, I again work well with students of all levels of experience. Beginners and intermediate students can expect to build a foundation of solid hand fundamentals, music reading & writing, musical comprehension, and a basic understanding of music theory. More experienced players will explore advanced musical concepts, such as composition, advanced chord structure, modal theory, and more. As with my drum students, piano students should expect a relaxed learning environment.

I currently handle a roster of 50+ students and multiple bands. When I'm not teaching, I'm playing with local Virginia outfits Roraima, Model Trains, & Walkabout. I've toured for Be Still Cody, Funeral Advantage, and Cocoba. I specialize in funk, R&B, experimental, and punk rock.

I had the opportunity to observe Jesse Harman's musicianship first hand 2 years ago. They were performing with a group in the Port Huron, a town in Michigan. Harman not only showed great professionalism in their craft but brought an amazing sense of fun and creativity while performing. Off stage, they handled their equipment very meticulously and with utmost care. To summarize what we have here, it is a devoted musician, who has not only mastered their art(and continues to develop said abilities) but as an added bonus, was a very kind individual and all around swell human being.

I haven't had the privelege of taking an official lesson from Jesse, but as their classmate and friend, I've learned a lot through osmosis. I've concluded that Jesse's talent is immeasurable, as I've seen through their many performances as a marching and concert percussionist, pianist, pop/rock/prog drummer, etc. They are not defined or confined by any particular style or genre. They do it all.
Beyond Jesse's immense talent is an even greater work ethic. They work hard to maintain and improve upon their talent, but they are also one of the most approachable and relaxed people I've met.
I've seen performances of bands Jesse has coached, and it's clear that not only are their kids technically proficient, but they have great confidence in themselves, too.
Jesse always leaves me inspired to become a become a better musician, solely through performance. I imagine the difference is that a real lesson will actually make you a better musician.
