About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

My lessons are both fun and educational, with flexibility to honor each student's needs and goals. During my time as a drummer, I have had the pleasure of studying music with Dr. Richard Ripani, Eddie Bell, and renowned big band drummer Duffy Jackson in Nashville, TN. I am currently finishing up a degree in Studio Music/Jazz Performance at UT Knoxville, studying with Professor Keith Brown. I want to pass on all the knowledge I gained from them to you! See you soon!

About Daniel
Hey there! My name is Daniel and I am a local drummer and private teacher recently graduated from UT Knoxville, having studied with Prof. Keith Brown. In May 2017, I earned a BM in Studio Music/Jazz Performance (drum set) and a minor in music business. I started teaching kids ages 7-14 when I was a senior in high school, and I am now looking for new students! I have experience in multiple drumming styles: big band jazz, combo jazz, rock/blues, church/CCM, folk, funk, and R&B. I look forward to meeting you and helping you towards your drumming goals!

Groove is everything! Drumming is far more about feel than it's about flash. If you want to be the drummer who is in high demand you need to have both feel and flash, but feel is something that is not common. It's easier to learn flashy antics than a meat and potato drumming foundation. I've been a professional musician for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to bring your internal groove monster out, how to improvise solos, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

About Shon
My Name is Shon M.

I was raised in a family that has a tradition of passing the art of music down from generation to generation. I began playing at age 5 and I play 5 instruments professionally and 15 instruments in all. I studied music at Morehead State University and Musician’s Institute. I've been a touring and studio musician since the age of 16. I have been teaching music for more than 35 years. Many of my alumni have gone on to become professional musicians and teachers themselves. My approach to music education is somewhat unique, although it is gaining popularity in the mainstream of music education. I view music more like a language, as opposed to what some have called more of a data entry approach. Don't get me wrong, reading music is important and I do it everyday, but your music lessons should be teaching you how to play a
n instrument, not spending the majority of your time in learning to read right out of the gate. Yes there basics you must learn, but when you were a child, you didn't learn to read as you spoke your first words. You were learning to speak your language long before your learned your ABC's. There are many musicians with little formal training who play an instrument so well you'd swear you can see smoke coming from their fingers. Let me tell you, they weren't born that way. They learned to speak the language of music. The fact is, it's so much easier to learn to read music, after you have a basic understanding of how to speak the language. So say good bye to the frustrations of banging you head against the wall with the complexities of reading music and wondering how much longer you're going to have to endure this ongoing torture before you learn to play something cool, and say hello to having fun while learning how to play an instrument and the songs and styles you want to play...

You may have studied music before and given up because it was too difficult. Please know that's not uncommon. But I’m here to tell you, there is a better way! So if you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument or sing, there is no better time than now.

Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

I have 5 years of professional teaching experience, and have designed individual lesson plans for students of various ages and experience levels. I will help you build a solid foundation on the art of drumming as we navigate through topics such as technique, groove, creativity, and musicianship. Your enjoyment and improvement are central to my work! Let's get to it!

About Daniel
I am a drummer, composer and improviser from New York City. I graduated from Oberlin Conservatory with a Bachelors in Music, with a focus on jazz drumset, where I also studied various styles of world music and percussion.

I have been drumming for over 12 years, and understand the difficulties of figuring out where to start, what to practice, and how to improve. My versatility and formal training has helped me to provide students with a solid foundation on the technical aspects of drumming (reading music, hand technique, rudiments, coordination etc.) along with helping them find their own voice. You can expect me to design personalized lesson plans that are catered to your personality, taste and improvement.

To facilitate my students' learning, I provide various written materials, from method books to my own exercises. I typical
ly start lessons on a practice pad before moving to the drum kit. I also work closely with the student to develop concise and organized practice routines, so that they understand what to work on during their own time. In my experience, I have found that this foundation in routine and gradual improvement is central to great musicianship, and with time, will open up a world of possibilities for creativity and expression.

I am very familiar and comfortable working with beginners, but can teach students of all ages and experience levels. Whether you want your child to turn their banging into music, or are looking to take your chops to the next level, I'm your guy!

I'm a licensed k12 music teacher and professional musician who knows how to transform beginners into competent musicians. My lessons are fun, methodical, and tailored to each student so you're always learning in a way that works best for you.

After going through the basics I focus our lessons on music that the student wants to play. I use a variety of materials that I've created myself in addition to the usual method books and I've made all of my materials work just as well online as they do in person.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

About Dan
I’m a licensed k12 music teacher and professional musician with a passion for teaching students of all ages and abilities. Whether you’ve never played before or have been playing for years, I can help you achieve your musical goals.

Over the last ten years I’ve taught hundreds of private students and have worked successfully with many different learning styles. I’ve led dozens of students from their first notes to being fully competent musicians. I teach all styles: rock, pop, jazz, latin, country/bluegrass, funk etc.

Studying with me, you'll learn the music that you want to play in the comfort of your home. I'll teach you the basics of reading music and rhythm, but getting you playing your favorite music is always my focus.

I also have a lot of experience working with school band programs, so if you're a student or parent of
a student in a school band or marching band, I know exactly what is needed to succeed in that environment.

I'm like you. I never liked sitting through lessons where they gave you nothing but fundamentals and made you learn genres you did not want to learn. I learn best when I'm learning how to play music I want to play! Over the years I have played in rock bands, orchestras, worship bands, percussion ensembles, and jazz ensembles. After playing in these multiple genres, I have found how to make drums fun and engaging while still learning the fundamentals to succeed quickly. I change my teaching style to suit each of my students, and I honestly believe that it does not matter if you're five years old or 100 years old, learning drums is possible and within your reach!

About Alec
My name is Alec, and I am from sunny and crazy Las Vegas, NV. I have been playing drums since almost eight years old and have played a lot of music. I have performed in rock bands, punk bands, worship bands, drumline, percussion ensembles, orchestras, jazz ensembles, and cover bands. I am a current college student in Phoenix, so I understand how hard it is to learn something. That is why I love to keep an emphasis on helping you, my future student, discover what excites you to learn drums in the first place. Although I learned in a classical setting, this does not mean I'm going to make you play Thelonious Monk and Coltrane (unless that's your thing). While I love jazz and classical, what ultimately got me into drums was wanting to play Metallica and Dr. Dre. Playing the music I wanted to play helped me become the musician I am today. So
if you want to learn how to play U2, Alicia Keys, Keith Urban, Charlie Parker, Dave Matthews, Meshuggah, Kendrick Lamar, Led Zeppelin, or whatever it is you want to learn, I'm going to do my best to help you play what you want to play.

I have spent many hours behind a drum set, so if you're a new drummer I would be happy to get your journey started. Basic rhythms, rudiment exercises, different drumming styles...etc

About Ryan
Hi my name is Ryan and I'm a classical guitar student pursuing a degree in Music Therapy. I am fairly new to teaching, which is why I think I would be a good candidate for beginner students. It will be my goal to give you the learning experience that YOU want. Since everyone learns differently, I will want you to tell me what interests you and we can let that be a guide for where to start your lessons as well as what subjects to expound upon. So, if you're just wanting to learn some guitar chords or you're interested in learning the fundamentals of music theory so that you can begin to sight read sheet music, I am here to help. :)

Thanks, -Ryan

Rhythm is the foundation of any musical skill. What better way is there to learn about rhythm than with rhythm instruments? While lessons will mostly be taught on a traditional drum set, some hand percussion instruments may be used as well as anything on which we can play a rhythm. Lessons will be tailored to the students’ interests but they will learn to read and write drum notation, proper playing technique, the mechanics of a drum set, tuning, how to play their favorite songs, and how to accompany other musicians.

About Tim
Hi, I’m Tim. I have a passion for drumming and teaching students of all ages and abilities. Above all things, I want my drum lessons to be fun while being informative and challenging. I believe everyone has some sense of rhythm that may just need a little guidance. My lessons put a focus on important “base-line” developmental concepts like reading notation and technique. Students will learn what they want to learn without missing out on the essentials. Guiding students to their “Ah-ha” moment is why I love to teach.

I've been playing drums for 18+ years and teaching/performing for 16+ years. I’ve been in several original bands and am currently the back-line drummer for the house band at Howl At The Moon in Ballpark Village in St. Louis, MO.

The Studio has 2 traditional kits set up [a student kit and an instructor kit] and a home-m
ade electronic kit. Hand percussion instruments include a Djembe, Bongos, Cajon, and Bongo Cajon. We can also utilize audio and video recording in the studio.

I have been teaching private drum lessons for 5 years and enjoy sharing personal experiences. I have taught lessons to students of various ages and levels and have helped them learn how to read music, obtain good hand posture, develop their techniques and build their free command and independence on the drums. In addition, I can include standard repertoire, sight reading and critical listening. I find that a combination of classic fundamentals and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy their instrument and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. I am very patient with students and parents and enjoy helping them comprehend exercises and musical concepts that they might be struggling with. Finally, I hope to help teach students what it takes to become a great musician as well as how to steer past some common roadblocks. 

With all my students, I first assess their skill level, ability and goals to then create a custom lesson program to best suit their needs. ...

About Tommy
I am a drummer, producer and educator from Chicago, IL. As a recent graduate from the University of Colorado Boulder, I moved back to Chicago to pursue my music and teaching career in the summer of 2018. I have been playing music and taking lessons since I was 5 years old and picked up the drums (my true passion) when he was 10. I have been producing, writing songs and session drumming since my early teens, recorded and collaborated with dozens of artists and have an extensive performance and touring background in various concert settings such as theaters, weddings, music festivals, dive bars, private events and jam hosting (averaging 100+ shows per year from 2015-2018). This past year, I had the honor of playing sold out theaters and have shared the stage with legendary and blossoming musicians from projects such as The Motet, Lettuce, V
ulfpeck, Snarky Puppy, The Floozies, RJD2, Break Science, Melvin Seals & JGB, Zach Deputy, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Werks, Tauk, The Magic Beans, and the Jaden Carlson Band among many others. In addition to teaching, I play in a number of Chicago bands, regularly session as a studio drummer at Fort Knox Studios and lead my own rock n roll inspired solo project. I specialize in performing and improvising in a variety of styles including: Rock, jazz, blues, country, hard rock, R&B, hip-hop, funk, jam-band, bluegrass, singer/songwriter, Cajun, zydeco, New Orleans based music and several Latin styles.
