About Athan
Hello potential students, my name is Athan G. and I would love to be your new teacher! I have been teaching for over eight years, and love it as much as I love music itself. I have extensive experience in helping students reach their goals, becoming the best drummers and musicians that they can be. As a musician, I have been fortunate to study and play with some of L.A.'s top musicians, participating in the country's top student groups and receiving honors at many music festivals and competitions. The lessons I've learned from these great experiences I hope to pass on to you, the student, in o
rder to help you get the most out of our lessons and to turn you into the best musician that you can be. Whether beginner or advanced, and any genre from jazz to rock to hip hop, I feel I have the knowledge to take your drumming and music-making to the highest level (and of course, have a blast doing it!) I have a passion for teaching, and would love to have you as my student!

Athan has a really easy going teaching style and makes it very easy to learn. The exercises were very well applied and tuned into the music I also liked to hear. He was open to hearing my comments and working with my feedback during the lesson. Overall, I'd definitely recommend Athan to others.

A really good guy as well.

Thank you for the experience.

About Lenny
Hi, there! My name is Lenny and I’m excited to meet you and help you achieve your musical and drumming goals by making lessons truly about YOU!

Unlike many music teachers who quickly jump into tedious exercises; my first goal is to find out which bands YOU like, who YOUR drumming heroes are, and what YOUR drumming goals are.

Then we can have fun with exercises, learn cool techniques, or jam out in my awesome studio (it's a recording studio with TWO drumkits!!!!) based on your favorite music! My goal as the teacher is to have you playing as much as possible during the lessons so you have
fun and learn something important EVERY SINGLE LESSON. You should walk away from every lesson smiling and feeling confident!!!

All you have to do is show up and have fun, I take care of every else.

If you are curious as to playing ability or background, click on the videos below. Quick background is I’ve been a busy private teacher for about 12 years. Have taught literally thousands of drums, bass, guitar, piano, music recording software, and DJ lessons. I have seen it all, and can help you with anything.

Lenny is an amazing drummer and performer. He really improved my drum playing skills after just one session! As a guitarist, I have been messing around with drums for years but I really feel like these lessons are going to take me to the next level. Lenny is awesome!

Lenny taught my son drums for about two years. It was great seeing Brandon learn and grow on a consistent basis and Lenny is great with kids. I sat in on most of the lessons and actually learned a lot myself!!! 5 Stars!!!

About Ray
Hello! My name is Ray R. and I'm a professional drummer and drum instructor.

I have been teaching private lessons for over four years and I'm currently accepting new students at my home studio, the studio is fully sound proofed and sound treated to make the lessons more enjoyable. I count with two drum sets, which allows me and the student to play together, making the lessons more fun and efficient. I'm also available to travel to your place if that's your preference. I've taught students ranging from 3 years old to 60 years old.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Performance of Contemporary
Music from Musicians Institute, where I have also been a private tutor in subjects including technique, reading, and overall drum set playing. Currently a drum instructor in Cornel School of Contemporary Music, teaching reading classes and contemporary styles, and at Modern Music School, where most of my students are kids. I'm also a published author with 6 educational drum books available in Amazon that are perfect for a beginner drummer who is first learning how to play, or for intermediate players who are looking to strengthen their foundations as drummers.

I'm a huge fan of teaching and take the opportunity to help you improve at something you love very seriously. I look forward to helping you accomplish all of your drumming goals!

Ray R. is what I would call a "Performance Teacher" to me. I am a guitarist and play with him to improve everything from rhythm to live performance skills. Not only is Ray an absolute beast of a musician, he is a wonderful teacher. As many people may know, just because one is a good musician it doesn't necessarily mean you also know how to be an effective teacher. Ray is the best of both worlds! I have improved leagues since I started playing with him some months ago. I COULD NOT recommend his as a teacher enough.
