I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over fifteen years and teaching for about 12. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels (lessons at my studio will be on electronic kit).

Private Drum Teacher

Hi! Music is my life and passion. I believe I was born to play drums and want to give my musical knowledge to as many people as I can.
Whether you want to learn how to play from scratch, get back into it after taking time off or anything in between I will show you what to do and how to do it correctly and musically keeping it fun and challenging. Reading rhythms from snare drum to full kit and even treble and bass clef. I have you covered..I've owned and operated my own school of rock for almost 2 decades, and can teach anyone how to play. I am also a professional guitarist and bassist, so when you get to a certain level we can (and will) jam to your favorite songs. I can guide and consult you on the right gear to buy for your best progress and budget. Let's do this, I’m ready to rock!

About Sandi

I am a lifelong musician, originally self-taught on several instruments including drums/ percussion (primary) electric lead and acoustic guitar, 4 and 5 string bass, ukulele, piano/ keys, and voice. I am a recording artist and have released several eps singles and albums. I played all bands in high

Jack
Sandi's a great drum teacher and is specifically great at connecting young burgeoning musicians and having them learn to play well together. This was especially important for me in helping me be comfortable playing in band settings which was and is the most important aspect of being a musician for me.
Emily
I just started taking lessons with Sandi this week. She was great and made it lots of fun! She made sure to gauge my skill level before I arrived, and prepared a fun first lesson for me. She is really skilled at telling how much challenge to give a student, which makes it fun for the student but also makes you want to practice and come back to learn more! Sandi is laid back, very approachable and super friendly. She’s a wealth of information on music, equipment, and even is helpful with booking classes through the website!
Kristen
This is my Second attempt at learning guitar - my first attempt with a different teacher ended before I could strum a song. Sandi’s teaching style makes learning guitar enjoyable. She teaches chords and songs and introduces music theory as you progress. Sandi also provides the encouragement needed to keep practicing even if you think you’ll never get there.

"Highly recommend Kevin! Just started drums and did 2 months of lessons with him at his in-home studio. Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!"
