Snare Drum instruction....I normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

About James B.

Hello! I am James and I have taught in the public schools in Connecticut for 35 years teaching all the Band instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums), and also piano. I have also taught beginning violin, viola, and cello.
I have taught privately for many years and have worked with students from ages 9 to 75.
In addition, I have performed professionally throughout Connecticut with numerous jazz bands.
When students study with me, they describe to me what they would like to accomplish on their instrument, and I will customize the music lesson to their own personal musical needs. This philosophy always makes the lessons more enjoyable for the student, as it becomes tailored to the individual.
So.....sign up and find out for yourself how we can achieve your musical goals!
