Hi! I’m glad you’re interested in taking drum lessons. I’m all about making learning to play fun. I’ve found that encouraging the student’s interest and enjoyment of music-making is the most important contributor to progress.
In the first lesson, it’s most important for us to communicate about what your goals are with the drum set. Whether you want to play in your local church, school, or even just play along to your favorite records, my job is to help you obtain the skills you need to make it happen and have a lot of fun in the process.
I tailor each lesson to each individual student – a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t usually work because each student has different strengths, weaknesses, and goals.
I welcome students of all ages and skill levels, even complete beginners!
I have a Bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Miami. I’ve studied the drum set formally for many years, and have spent thousands of hours rigorously studying and practicing many styles of music – everything from hip-hop, to jazz, to samba. I have also been performing professionally since I was a teenager and frequently perform locally in mine and others’ groups.
I recommended Jack to my students when I moved away, and they were all pleased with his lessons.
Jack is an amazing drummer and a really good teacher, too. My favorite part of the lessons are when we'll work on something by playing together.
He was a great teacher and super fun and funny. Drums are hard but are lessons are fun!
Jack has such a unique approach to the drums. He's all about getting control of the instrument and can help you work on really specific problems. Great to work with!
Jack was extremely knowledgeable and very patient with my son. Would certainly recommend.
