Overview

Always wanted to play the drums?

Whether you aim at becoming a pro or you just want to play along with some of your favorite tunes, I can help you get there. With years of teaching experience and degrees from Berklee college of music and New England Conservatory, I have all the tools to get you to the next level. How fast? That's up to you :)

In the lesson we go over technique , rhythm training and play along with songs in different styles. Through these steps you will learn all the tools you need to enjoy and appreciate the art of drumming and music in general.
The more advanced you are the more we can get into improvisation, polyrhythms and other complex subjects so that you can challenge yourself.

I teach all styles, and levels, in my location or in your home.

Dor is an excellent drum instructor. He taught our 9-year old in home for 6 months and was terrific. Our son really advanced his speed techniques under Dor's instruction. We only stopped due to our son's broken arm and we look forward to resuming lessons with Dor as soon as possible. He's great with kids, punctual, reliable and a pleasant guy.

First lesson with Dor went great. Dor was very accessible for questions and gave me all the info I needed. My son came back very happy from his lesson and is very excited about playing the drums. Dor walked him out to the car, which I greatly appreciated!! Great experience so far!!

I've been really enjoying my lessons with Dor. He makes each lesson fun and informative by not just going over rudiments but also getting me onto the drum kit to play songs I love. He has a great eye for detail and gives helpful constructive feedback. If you're serious about learning drums, Dor is definitely the right man for the job!

Great Teacher and drummer! I studied with Dor last year when wanting to learn a secondary instrument. As an experienced performer, Dor knows how to take his students on whatever path they want to go. Highly recommend him for both advanced players and beginner players. Very patient, kind and committed to his students.

I have been a student of Dor's for two years now. He is a very dedicated teacher and has continued to challenge me as I have progressed. Dor is clearly invested in the progress of his students and is a very engaged instructor. He always takes my interests and learning style into account when teaching. Highly recommend him to both beginners and more advanced students.
