I have 4+ years of experience teaching drummers of all ages. I try my hardest to make learning the fundamentals of drumming fun and accessible. I want all of my students to experience the joy of creative expression on their instrument.

We can go from learning how to read drum notation to playing full songs in any style of music together. I play many instruments, so hopping on any instrument to accompany you is no problem. I'd love to hear from you and together we can find the quickest route to get to grooving!

I'm a full time touring musician, I studied music in school for 8 years, but I can honestly say I've learned more about music through my years as a touring musician. I find great joy in sharing all the things I've learned over the years.

I like getting to know my students; their expectations and goals as an aspiring drummer, and I build my curriculum around their needs.

In my lessons you can expect to learn, and have fun!

One of the best things about taking a weekly lesson with Rob is that I can practice and learn what he teaches me all week and make a list of questions to ask during our next lesson. I highly recommend his method of learning Ableton.

I can't say enough about Sean! He is funny and engaging. My 8 yo looks forward to his weekly online lessons and loves to practice. Sean presents material that is a perfect balance of challenging and achievable. It is so exciting to see my son's progress with the Djembe and his understanding of music theory grow. Sean is a fabulous find!

It went perfectly fine.

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!
Kristin
Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!
Aidan
I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

"I started a bit behind the other kids in elementary school band. Chris was the drum instructor for the high school marching band at the time and my band teacher highly recommended him for private lessons.

Chris was able to get me caught up to the other drummers within a couple months. I was finally able to read sheet music fluently and began to be assigned more advanced parts to play in the school band. Each week Chris gave me homework assignments such as working on different rudiments or reading and playing different types of percussion sheet music (bells, xylophone, etc). My lessons with a Chris paid off over the years, as I was able to join the high school marching band as a middle schooler and went on to win accolades for my drumming in the school plays. Everything I learned and accomplished most definitely stemmed from my lessons with Chris!"

Jim was really patient with me which I appreciate - since I haven't played the drums in 10 years. But I really picked it back up right away with him, really pleased with the results of our lessons.
