Teaching since:

Hello, My name is Ethan Lyons and I’m a graduate of the Bishop Hendricken High School Class of 2017, and I give private drum lessons to people of all ages in the comfort of their own homes. I recently auditioned and was accepted to the University of Rhode Island’s Music program, and will be studying music education in the fall of 2017.
While I love to perform, I believe that my passion is teaching. Over the past year I’ve been teaching and mentoring younger students as well as my friends and colleagues, and I wish to expand my clientele. I give private drum lessons to people of all ages, with a concentration in rudimental snare drum. Over the winter I was invited to march in the 2017 Rose Bowl Parade, Bands of America Honor Band in Pasadena, California as a snare drummer in the drum line. Marching snare drum requires an extreme amount of meticulous concentration to technique, and I believe that this focus on technique is the key to being a good percussionist, which is what I focus on in the beginning of the private lessons. I also teach basic music theory in rhythms, so that the student can read drum music at a basic to intermediate level.
After I feel like the student has grasped the ideas of the technique, is able to apply it to the snare drum, and is able to successfully read sheet music, we then move over to the drum set and apply the same ideas around the drums. I play professionally in small jazz ensembles, and in a local rock band called “The Naticks”(recently named Best Indy Band in Ri by Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.) I’ve also played in numerous school ensembles, and at the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School for some time. The drum set lessons focus primarily on rock and jazz, with some basic lessons on other genres like latin and afro-cuban.
My goal is to foster a love and appreciation of music in people of all ages. Being able to connect with people of all cultures and languages through one universal connection, like music, is something indescribable, and I wish to share my passion with other people.
