We will develop solid time, technique, reading, and rudiments. To foster musicality we will focus on critical listening . We will focus on effective practicing to maximize our efforts. We will learn to apply rudiments and stickings around the drums for interesting and dynamic fills. We will play together to focus on listening and ensemble skills. We also have the ability to record our lessons for later review.

About Aaron C.

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student.

I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus. I've performed on cruise ships, in clubs and bars, and in concert halls.

As a drummer I'm well versed in Jazz, Rock, Latin, Funk, and Orchestral/Band Percussion. We will focus on solid time, technique, and musicality.

On the piano we develop solid fundamentals through reading and technical exercises, a grounding in theory, and an understanding of musical structure. You will learn to play from a fake book, play with a band, and improvise. I will also equip you with the tools to write your own music.

Happy to teach students both drums and piano. We can do this as a split one hour lesson, or alternate weeks. We will also work on ensemble playing by playing together.

Aaron has been great for my son (who's 8 and just starting). He's fun, super patient and keeps my son's attention well throughout the lesson. He has paced the lessons well so far. We're very happy and totally recommend Aaron.

I loved how Aaron interacted with my children and that he took a little extra time to talk with me and explain things. Both of my boys really enjoyed their lesson and are excited for next week.

My first lesson with Aaron was fun and very helpful. Aaron is an experienced teacher & musician with a great personallity who obviously loves music. I'm psyched to learn from him and motivated to go forward. I especially liked his approach and his ability to break down complex musical theory into basic concepts for a begginer's level of instruction. Feeling good about my choice of instructor.
