Teaching since:
2005

My first name is Igor. I have been teaching drums, drum-set, rudimental snare drumming since 2005. My goal is flexibility and fundamentals during the lesson so that the lessons are as fun and educational but not lax and lazy.

I take teaching seriously but I am friendly with every student because I appreciate in others believing in me and allowing me to teach them the principles of rhythm.

Read my profile and about my teaching methods and, if I fit your liking and style, then let's make this happen. Thank you!
Let's make some rhythms!

Staying positive during practice is key. Keep smiling (uses up less muscles than frowning). :)
