I offer an understanding of the learning process it takes to learn what's next. Being young and relatable I teach FUN lessons for all ages and skill levels. My teaching ethic comes from years of marching experience and a career recording drumset in the Los Angeles studio scene. Lessons will replicate much of what I learned during my 4 years attending Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Come learn a practical approach to accomplishing challenging goals and congratulations on your decision to seek musical education!

Gerhardt provides a great foundation for what it takes to learn music and the drums. He is patient and works with you to understand your goals and music taste to make it a fun experience. His videos help to practice in off time as well...
