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 believe that drumming is a universal practice for joy, health, communication and discipline available for anybody...any age...any brain...any body.

I enjoy helping other people find the groove within them, strive to improve, and adapt their drumming regimen to make "the work" of drum practice feel more like the "play" of sport and meditation ... fun, free, and refreshing

When we make music it's called playing for a reason: because it's fun! My aim is to ignite joy, creativity, and growth no matter your age or background with music. I listen to you in order to help guide you through your unique path, reinforcing solid standard practices and Independence along the way. What excites and inspires you about music?

For over 20 years, I have been teaching and performing as a professional drummer and percussionist. Since receiving my bachelor's degree in classical percussion and a master's degree in video game music and sound design, I have continued to share my passion for music as an active performer, recording artist, composer, arranger, and sound designer.

I took up drums at 48 years old. It had always been a dream of mine but I was worried that as a husband and father of two it was an unrealistic dream and too time consuming. Cut to 3 years later and I am a drummer in a band playing gigs!! I owe all of this to Thor. He is a GREAT drummer and a GREAT instructor. Thor also taught my son! I highly recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing this incredible passion!!!
Scott
Thor is the best drummer and teacher! I’m so thankful for the rhythmic wisdom he shared in our online lessons. It helped take my drumming to the next level. Highly recommended 10/10
Tommy
Thor really knows what he’s talking about! He has a solid footing in rock, jazz, Latin, and many other settings and his compositional skills and musicianship really back up his expertise as a drummer. I took lessons from Thor for three years while I was in high school and now I study jazz drums at Elmhurst College. Looking back, Thor was definitely my favorite teacher. He brings an enthusiasm and friendly demeanor to each and every lesson and I couldn’t think of a better teacher for a beginner/intermediate drummer.

My drums lessons are highly customized to the needs of a student. From a beginner first picking up the drumsticks, learning proper technique, or taking their first steps in music literacy, to someone who is familiar with the instrument and venturing into different styles, my experience across genres has exposed me to a wide array of materials that will help us take you to where you want to be. We will build your plan of study together--be it just one to two lessons, to maybe a 3-month plan.

About Cristóbal

An honors music graduate of Amherst College, I have played the drums for over 9 years in a wide range of styles going from punk, indie, rock and alternative bands to hip-hop gigs to jazz and orchestral works to playing on a live band for musicals.

Brent has been teaching my daughter drum for about 1 year now and it has been great!

I highly recommend him as a music teacher.
Gautam
My 7 year old loves music and has shown an affinity towards playing the drums! Brent has been an awesome teacher and has so much patience working with easily distracted kids. He is always encouraging my son and show him both the fun side and the more technical side of playing the drums. We look forward to continuing our lessons with Mr. Brent, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play the drums
Shalinee
Brent has created a wonderful learning environment for both of my kids. Although they are at very different stages of learning, Brent has been able to meet them individually where they are in their processes. Brent’s approach is calm, engaging and fun. Both kids look forward to learning more each week.

He does a great job of demonstrating all the techniques that I need to know and teaching me a lot of different songs. Our lessons have been very productive thus far and I look forward to more!"
