With over 20 years teaching and playing experience, I believe, first and foremost, that drumset lessons should be FUN! I provide a supportive and nurturing environment where you the student can work towards unlocking your musical potential without fear of intimidation or judgment. You will help create your own unique lesson path and structure, selecting books, songs, genres, and learning methods that work best for YOU. A typical lesson involves listening, playing, notation-reading, discussion, basic drills, and more. Together we'll work to achieve YOUR goals, be that playing professionally, joining a band, or simply learning a few of your favorite tunes. Most of all, we'll work toward tapping into the joy, ecstasy, and FUN, that only music can provide!

About Jeremy T.

I've been drumming for over 25 years and I'm STILL obsessed! I've played in all sorts of bands--rock, folk, jam, reggae, fusion, jazz, Irish-rock--in venues ranging from small corner pubs to large festivals and arenas. I spent the last 4 years playing full-time in Key West, Florida, averaging over 300 shows per year. When I'm not home practicing, you can find me at one of Chicago's many awesome venues, checking out new drummers. I STILL love learning new grooves, fills, songs, and playing with new bands. For me, drumming is a kind of meditation, a sanctuary from the chaos of the world and its myriad obligations.

I'm equally passionate about sharing my experience with interested students. Providing a laid-back, judgment-free learning environment is my number-one priority. My very first drum teacher was the OPPOSITE of nurturing, so I've made it my life's goal to treat each and every student with love and compassion. I also put tremendous emphasis on letting the student guide the lesson process. My job is to help you learn whatever you want to learn. I will, from time to time, nudge you, but always in a positive direction. I also feel strongly about exposing students to new music, and encouraging you and your parents to join me for weekend listening sessions at local clubs and theaters! Let's get together and jam!

Our 7 year old so is taking lessons with Jeremy and having a blast! The lessons are engaging and tied to the music our son likes. He is learning a lot and improving every week. We highly recommend Jeremy!

I recently started to learn the drums and I am glad I'm learning from Jeremy. He is very patient and always asks if I have any questions. He helps me understand something by giving examples. I am learning a lot from Jeremy as my drumming instructor.

Jeremy was my first drum teacher and he was wonderful. He had a very focused teaching approach that made the path of progress clear. He keeps lessons fun while informative. He is a kind and encouraging teacher who is invested in his students.
