I've played drums about 30 years and taught lessons about 20 of those years. Each student is different and I've evolved my lessons to accommodate teaching each student. My background consists of all styles of Drumset, marching band, rock bands, soloing and Troopers drum corps. Also playing in jazz, concert and orchestra bands gave me opportunity to perform and compete many places including P.A.S., scoring a 1 @ state and G.C. drum off. I took private lessons for a few years before leaving to college in Hollywood, CA, attending M.I.(Musicians Institute) with one of my instructors becoming the current drummer for Korn, "Ray Luzier". I now teach mostly out of my own books on how to read music, coordination, grooves, soloing and playing with bands. If you are not local, I offer online lessons too. I have 1-2 recitals each year and make it possible for online students to participate. Accepting beginner to advanced drummers, come check it out.+ Read More
Sometimes I'm asked to demonstrate a drum clinic at various school's and music stores. I always bring my gigantic drum kit of 20 drums and 28 cymbals with many accessories and 7 foot pedals. I usually stress coordination, reading and different styles at clinics. Unless I'm asked to demonstrate something else specific. Most clinics are inbetween 1-3 hours.+ Read More
Teaching private drumset lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. Each individual is different and needs to be taught in the best way for them to progress quickly. I wrote my own books to break down beats, patterns, rhythms, songs and solos for learning step by step material. I offer every genre of music with coordination and reading notes. I enjoy my job.+ Read More
Teaching a drumline of 8 - 16 drummers how to play snare, tenors, bass, and pit instruments. Marching style and formations were included. Every morning and most afternoons we had practice for about 4+ hours daily. The Drumlines took 1st place many years in a row during my instruction.+ Read More
Learning from some of the best instructors in L.A., we examined music theory, ear training and keyboarding as well. Each class room had a drumset for music. Each student also had 24 hour access to their own practice room with a drumset inside the school.

Danny is awesome, looking forward for continued lessons
Patient, knowledgeable, motivating! Perfect for me!
Danny is patient with kids, but if you want to be driven to perfect your talent, he has that within himself too. He has the education and passion to help you go as far as you decide to go.
Danny is the best Drum teacher I have ever met. He is super patient and can get the kids playing really well. He did so good with one of my kids that I added another one and they both love playing the drums. Also his recitals are great and it gets the kids a chance to perform on a stage with an audience. I highly recommend Danny as a drum teacher.+ Read More
