Private Drum Teacher

I teach with an encouraging, positive mentality that will foster fun and a love for the drums! For beginners, I start from the ground up with proper technique, rudiments, musicality, all while ensuring room for creativity and curiosity.

After that, and for drummers with a little more experience, you'll learn to:
-Use rudiments in a musical and practical way on the kit
-Build your drum vocabulary
-Play musically and with purpose
-Read and write music
-Write fast charts for gigging

I teach out of my music studio in my home, a roomy and professional space with a beautiful kit to play on, or online.

From day one, Cassie has not only been enthusiastic about music, but also about creating a relationship with my daughter. I can visibly see progress in my daughter's understanding of rhythm in what we listen to and she loves to create games around the subject. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Cassie.

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!

I studied with Abel for 3 years as an adult student and had a great experience. He’s a very dedicated drummer and teacher, is patient and smart, and is also a cool guy to hang out with. He became a great mentor, and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am today without him!

Wonderful drum teacher! Works well with children of all ages and is incredibly patient with his students. I’ve known Abel for years and I highly recommend him for students looking to improve for their technique to compete in school bands.

Great first lesson! My son was very comfortable and excited to keep going.
Natalie
Lydia was very welcoming and kind, and put me at ease during our first lesson. She knew I wanted to work on mallet percussion, and had a lesson plan ready for me on the marimba. She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!
Mike
Lydia's teaching style is fantastic! As an older learner, she was very patient and understanding with me while still helping me reach my goals. She taught me many different ways of playing and different styles. It is a pleasure to be taught by such a remarkable percussionist!

Online Drum Teacher

Hi!

I'm a drummer classically trained by many local Metro Detroit session musicians and even the drummer who supported Uncle Kracker for a long time! I have been drumming for more than half of my life with a natural talent and affinity to progressive rock and metal. I can teach and read sheet music, teach proper sticking technique (such as Moeller, throw catch, and rudiments), and teach the best way to fall into a groove for songs. I have experience with teaching math as a tutor for many years and want to expand my tutoring experience into my greatest passion; which is drums. I'm excited to get to know you or your student!

About Joshua

I've drummed in many live concerts ranging from festivals like Arts, Beats, and Eats in Royal Oak, to venues like the Emerald Theater and the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit. I have also played one special concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a young teenager. I can learn by ear and play just abo

How to Read Drum Sheet Music | How to Play Drums

Think drummers don't need to read music? Think again! Drum sheet music is a great way to learn your favorite beats and write things out so you will remember them later. Drum sheet music is written on the same five line staff as traditional music. At the beginning of the piece, you'll see the time signature. Written like a fraction (4/4 or 7/8, for example), the time signature lets you know how many beats to play in each measure and what the rhythm should be. You should also see the number of …
