Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Hi, my name's Andy! I've been playing drums since I was 13 years old. I started out taking professional lessons until I gained enough confidence and foundation to go on to perform with various groups and in live settings. I have toured all over the country and played with very talented musicians from many different genres. At the age of 18 I began teaching drum lessons to others to share my knowledge. My students have gone on to form musical groups of their own and challenge themselves with live performances. Contact me if you are looking to learn beginner drum techniques, prepare for an audition, brush up your skills, learn your favorite songs, and play the best instrument in the world! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! Let's have fun!

I have toured all over the country and played with very talented musicians from many different genres. At the age of 18 I began teaching drum lessons to others to share my knowledge. I began teaching in my hometown local music store, then moved on to various teaching websites such Reverb.com, Lessons.com, etc. My students have gone on to form musical groups of their own and challenge themselves with live performances.

Andrew didn't teach me through Reverb, but I made an account just to say how much I appreciate him. His lessons were fun, and worth every penny. I would recommend him to anyone, any age. He taught me drums for 2 years, and it was a blast. He is the most patient, down to earth and funny guy, and his teaching style was so easy to learn from. He is definitely one of a kind!!!

One of the greatest drum teachers out there, I highly recommend this, to newcomers, and old timers too!
Great price, offers, and the greatest teacher in Cali!
Tell Andrew that you know Zenon, and he will hug you for free.

Although i haven't learned with Andy through takelessons yet, he has taught me in the past in person and will be teaching me online from across the country! He is a great teacher because he is so willing to put the time into his lessons. I had no experience when our lessons started but he has helped mold me into a musician. Thanks!!!
