Hi, my name is Fred, and I'm a drum and piano instructor in Berks County (Reading, PA). I've been playing drums for the past 20 years, as well as piano for the past 10 years, and have been a studio drummer for multiple albums while touring both nationally and internationally with multiple music groups. I've been a music instructor since 2009, and have seen over 40 students become more skilled musicians over that span of time. In addition to teaching drums and piano, I'm also an assistant teacher for the BCIU in the Reading School District and have a bachelor's of science in Youth Ministry from Valley Forge Christian College.
I aim to make lessons 1. affordable, 2. fun, and 3. effective. I believe that music plays an important role in the lives of humans, and it is very beneficial to be able to play an instrument. For myself, playing music is more than just a hobby; it's a passion. I strive to see other students (child, teenager, and adult) form the same passion for their instrument that I have, while expressing themselves with their own styles of play. If you're a prospective drum or piano student or the parent of one, I'd be more than honored to be your instructor.
*** Lesson Details ***
I offer lessons of any time length, from a half hour up to two hours. I try to make lessons as affordable as possible while making them as fun as possible. Seeing a student succeed and gain a passion for their instrument is my number one goal.
I have availabilities each day of the week Mondays-Fridays. You can look over my schedule to see my current openings.
