About Eric

Hi! My name is Eric D. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland I have been play drums for the past 15 years. My musical pursuits started in the 5th grade when I began playing in school band. Throughout Middle and High School I played in All County Jazz and Symphonic band.

I have now been teaching for the past 5 years and have toured the world with many great musicians. It is now that I wish to share my experience with the Nashville community! ***Lesson Details*** Lessons will take place in the student's home or desired ...

Jamie H. Nashville, TN

I teach beginner to intermediate drums students who want to work up to more advanced playing.

About Jamie

Hello! I'm Jamie, and I love music! I started teaching drum lessons to kids around my neighborhood when I was in high school, and have kept doing so on-and-off for the past several years. I like to focus on giving each student a strong understanding of the basics of drums and drum set playing (theory, notation, rhythm, grooves, beats, etc.), and play to each students strengths and interests. I like to think of my self as a big, bearded man-child, so kids like me, and I like them. As for guitar, I am mostly self-taught. I took a beginner course in high school, and have been learning along the way on my own ever since. I play rhythm guitar, and I like to think that my drumming informs my guitar playing to a great extent. I am very groove-oriented, rhythm is what gets me going!

Aaron S. Nashville, TN

I've been teaching private drum/percussion students, college master classes, and adult workshops for close to 15 years. From very beginners to professional performers I love finding the right path to success with each student. In addition to technique and reading skills, I focus on grooves, styles, soloing, and most importantly, finding your own voice on the instrument. I use a method that teaches the student how to teach themselves, leading to a style of learning that is truly limitless!

I have worked with students from 4 years old all the way to 70 and ...

Matthew N. Nashville, TN

Over 3 years of teaching experience

Curriculum emphasizes the development of student's snare drum fundamentals. Once a student has gained proficiency on one drum, those mechanics can be transformed into drum set navigation.

Reading music as well as playing by ear are both necessary skills for success on the drum set. When combined properly, a student can then improvise (play what comes to mind) tastefully.

Improving should always be fun! Motivation is everything.

Aaron T. Nashville, TN

I consider myself a coach rather than a teacher. Rhythm is about breathing, posture, and attitude! Play like you mean it.

I base a lot of my teaching in the essentials like rudiments, the Moelor hand technique, relaxed stick control, independence, feels etc. This approach allows the drumming muscles and mind to work with multiple styles.

I instruct using songs and exercises. I will guide you whatever way you choose to go!

About Aaron

Hi I'm Aaron! I started out playing drums to my brother's Led Zeppelin tapes and my dad's soul record collection. My first ever private lesson I remember learning some awesome pointers to play the song "I feel good" by James Brown. I remember that day I felt empowered as a player. Like I had what it takes. And I was given some knowledge of how to get me there. Every student has an ambition to play a certain way. To have a certain THING. I help guide them with skills and techniques to reach those goals. I'm not just a teacher, I'm a drum coach. Not only will you be learning the essentials, rudiments, hand technique, feel & timing, etc, But you will also be taking home a different perspective, posture, and attitude to playing the drums. I've toured and recorded for over 10 years

Drum · In studio
I actually had a drum instructor before I started with Aaron and ended up ditching him because Aaron was ten times better. I didn't feel like I was in a boring classroom lecture, I was hands-on and learning to play music that I loved. While learning all the basic techniques I also had the freedom to be myself in the process, which I'm a big fan of. Would recommend him to anyone! Great guy. 5 stars.
