Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My lessons consist of assessing what goals a student has to achieve and using that as a template to grow them musically. My mission is to teach students in a way that equips them with whatever technical skills they required to play the drums effectively, as well as grow their passion and love for music. Having been taught by a multitude of very credible and popular musicians, I have a well rounded approach to teaching that will allow students to excel quickly.

Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Chris Fleming and I've been teaching drum lessons for approximately 5 years, as well as professionally drumming the past few years. I myself have played drums for 9 years and built up a solid "curriculum" of sorts for teaching students due to the very professional lessons I was given during my musical development years. I have taken lessons from Steve Goold (drummer to Sara Bareilles, Owl City, Carly Ray Jepsen, and Ben Rector,) Zach Miller (drummer to Jason Gray and Sara Groves,) and many other qualified teachers.

Stylistically, I am qualified to teach students pop, rock, country, folk, funk, worship, gospel, Latin, and some jazz. I strive to teach my students the importance of understanding the art behind music and the drum kit's role in that, and give them the necessary exercises and practices to achieve their goals with their instrument. I have my students tell me their goals and I then develop a plan of action to allow them to satisfy those goals.

- Drum for various churches in the Minneapolis Metro area. Some small churches as well as some mega churches.
- Freelance musician for a few local city bands.
- Toured and drummed with pop artist, Shuree.
- Recorded drums for various artists in studios around Minneapolis.
- Have taught around 10 drum students over the past 5 years and seen much musical growth in many of them.
