Hey drummers!

Learn to groove to the music you love!

My name is Dani Danor. I am a professional drummer and teacher. Drums and music have always been my biggest passion.

My number one goal in teaching is to get my students as excited as I am about this incredible instrument. And why shouldn't they? This is one of the few (if not the only) instruments that use all four limbs simultaneously. How crazy is that? Imagine how many rhythms, sounds and melodies can be created? Endless!

Drums are the heart of the music all around the world! Whether it's rock 'n roll, funk, jazz, hip-hop, salsa, samba, or electronic music, the drums are what make everything feel so good!

If you too would like to begin (or continue) exploring this amazing world of rhythm and sound, you are welcome to contact me to schedule a lesson. I teach at my studio in Crown Heights as well as at the students' homes.

All ages and levels are welcome! Feel free to contact me for more information.

All the best,


A little about me:

* Performed in music festivals worldwide including Montreal Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Jazz in Marciac, as well as renowned jazz clubs worldwide such as Blue Note, Birdland, Jazz Standard, Ronnie Scott’s, Bimhuis, New Morning and The Cotton Club.

* Artists I've worked with Include Grammy-nominated Jazz Vocalist Cyrille Aimee, rock star Cinjun Tate(of Remy Zero), and Fred Thomas(James Bown's bassist)

About Dani D.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a snare drum and pad for the first few lessons but will require my students to purchase a beginner drum kit once needed ( usually within a month or so).

*** Specialties ***
I work according to each students level, goals and time constraints.
In my lessons I make sure to devide our time between technique,reading and practical playing( learning grooves to songs starting from basic rock through swing, latin and funk)

I've been taking drum lessons with Dani since January (6 months) and have been really enjoying our lessons. Dani's a great teacher with a positive attitude and that made all the difference. I'd leave the lessons feeling excited and inspired to practice the new beats he taught me. Super glad we're able to continue our lessons online during this period. I can't recommend him enough!

Dani has been by far the best drum teacher I've had! His enthusiasm really makes me wanna practice and get better. He genuinely cares about my growth and after taking lessons for about a year now, I feel much more confident to play with other musicians.
