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 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!

Linear patterns and four way coordination patterns will be applied for developing good coordination skills and ambidextrous discipline in advanced players. Beginners will learn to grasp a feel of straight quarter, eighth and sixteenth note beats. Shuffle and swing rhythms will be covered so the student can get a feel of grooves that are based on these concepts. Students may also learn about music and rhythms from all over ...

Online Drum Teacher

Time and groove are the bulk of how a drummer communicates. Stick and hand technique are the "vowels", "nouns" and "adjectives". As a drum instructor for over 20 years, my teaching philosophy has always been to assist a drum student in his or her drum vocabulary. All ages are welcome. Never too early nor too late to learn rhythms!
All styles are welcome as well as all genres. Drum set, hand drums, shakers... rock, pop, blues, jazz, latin jazz, salsa, Afro-Cuban, Soca. The possibilities are endless in the world of rhythm and percussion!

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

"Taking drum lessons with Thomas online has been so rewarding. I finally dusted off my old drums and went on a search to find a great teacher and I found him. I'm not looking to become the next Neil Peart or anything. Just want to have fun and learn. He's very easy to talk to and helps me grasp musical concepts in a really digestible way. He has me working on exercises and my durability on the drum set has improved worlds beyond where I thought I could ever be. I really love his work with Minor Characters, a Chicago band he was in. I'm an older guy but I was motivated by Thomas to start jamming in the garage with some friends of mine who play guitar and bass We have about 10 songs we play each week and Thomas helps me work through each one and every week I get better. Take lessons with this guy. He'll change your life!"

5 Best Drum Books for Beginners

Learning to play the drums is not something you can do in a single day or a single lesson. Drumming is an art form, in many ways, and it takes time to develop. Beginner drummers can get frustrated easily, but stick with it and you’ll be playing the drums (and playing them well!) sooner than you might think. While private lessons are the quickest most efficient way to learn to play, you’ll also need to practice at home to really develop your talent. Combine this with the right drum books, and …
