Corey is a fantastic drummer! Take advantage of time at home while learning new skills, and this is a great way to stay active and keep your energy up. Corey has been drumming for a very long time and has an excellent positive attitude, you can't miss!
Alex
A great experience! I have been learning with Corey for about two months, and am already improving. I am a guitar player with some basic drumming experience. I was looking to finally get to the next level so I could record my own drum beats (also drumming always looked like a lot of fun!), and Corey is helping me to achieve this. He is a talented drummer himself, and was able to quickly assess my playing level so we could start building on it. He has a great eye and ear for issues with my technique and always has an exercise to address them. In a short time I have experienced significant improvement, playing some more creative drum patterns, and am looking forward to continuing.
A lot of fun, very fulfilling, great instructor! Highly recommended!

Private Drum Teacher

In my lessons I strive to make the maximum progress possible, while also having as much fun as possible. This is accomplished by imparting the most valuable, useful, and beneficial information in a fun and relaxed, low pressure environment, always with the students goals and priorities first and foremost. I also like to keep the student challenged at their current ability level.

For beginning students I stress basic fundamentals, just as you would in sports. It makes progress come at a much faster clip and avoids making time consuming corrections later. The longer you play with bad habits, the harder they are to break.

For more advanced students, I assess their current abilities, determine if any problems need to be addressed, and with their goals in mind, come up with the proper plan of action.

Having been self taught till entering college I understand all ends of the spectrum. In my career I have come across three separate groups of musicians:

My son has been taking lessons with Ed since he was 5. Ed was very patient dealing with a high energy child who had a limited attention span. Eight years later, we are still seeing Ed weekly for lessons and my son has turned into a well-rounded musician. Ed tailors the lessons to my son's musical interests and takes an interest in what is going on in his life.

We have gone to see Ed perform in several venues and he always takes the time to talk to us during his break. I highly recommend Drum Lessons with Ed for those at any skill level.

I gig, teach, and tour, full time as a drummer living in NYC. I've played drums for over 13 years and studied with numerous teachers across the country.

I perform rock, gospel, funk, jazz, country, and pop music for audiences all over and can help students identify specific, tailored, course work to help them in whatever genre.

My goal is to help students of all ages and abilities sift through the ocean of content to find the *right* challenges for them so they can play what they want to play.

This if my life, this is what I love. I look forward to working with you!

and compassionate teacher. His lessons were so well tailored to my needs. Each class addressed specific needs and goals of mine. Max is a great drummer and wonderful teacher, highly recommend.

I was a bit nervous about taking lessons as I had not played drums in front of anyone before. My first lesson was surprisingly a very comfortable expereience and something that I would definitely recommend if you are on the fence. I have been playing for about a year and felt like I wasn't progressing with YouTube tutorials anymore. Max has really been helping to take me to a new skill level!

Kevin has been able to encourage him and provide the basic fundamental instruction so that he can feel confident as he will be transitioning into the school band class soon. It is quite obvious that he genuinely cares about his students and wants the best for them. We definitely recommend this guy if your looking for someone to help you get started on the path to becoming more musically inclined :)"

"My son (6) and I have both been taking drum lessons with Bobby for close to two years and it's been an awesome experience. My son, of course, started from scratch, and I had some basic chops before starting, but with seemingly endless patience and dedication, Bobby has gotten both of us to sound great. We quickly progressed from basic 4/4 rhythms into the cooler world of paradiddles and ghost notes, learning techniques like dynamic drumming that go a long way towards making us both sound like legitimate drummers.

Knowing basically nothing about the technical aspects of drumming when we started, we needed Bobby's help to set up our kit. He showed us how to tune our drums, position the toms and ride/crash cymbals, and all around just get the best sound possible out of our basic TAMA drum kit. When Bobby gets grooving on our drum set, it becomes obvious that it’s not the size or cost of the kit that matters.

When we talked about what styles of music we were into and the kind of music we wanted to play, Bobby found perfect selections for us to play along to and he seems to have the sheet music to every song out there! One time I filmed a street musician drumming the funkiest of beats and after I showed it to Bobby, he broke it down for me so that I could play it too.

Bobby has been the perfect instructor for us and I strongly recommend anyone at any level who's interested in drumming to become a student of his."

"Jimmy is the best instructor ever!! I went into playing drums not really having any knowledge of music what so ever. I have been playing for 7 months now and I have learned so much. He is so encouraging and is always giving you positive feedback on how your doing and it makes you feel good about yourself and how you play. I am always learning new things about my instrument and how important my roll as a musician is no matter who I am playing with or for. With Jimmy the lessons might be once a week but he is always there no matter what day or time to help you out with any questions you may have. He is the best there is no one else like him!!! Every lesson is fun and I look forward to going every week!!"

When Should You Replace Your Drum Heads?

A big part of drum set maintenance is knowing when to replace your drum heads. But when is the right time to do so? Of course, the right time will depend on how often you play - and also how hard you play. It can also depend on the sound you're going for, but a good rule of thumb is to switch out their drum heads when they start losing their original tone - they may sound dull, flat or worn. Other factors are if you notice dents (likely to happen if you're still using the stock heads), if you …
