Hello, my name is Jerry and I've been teaching drums for over eight years! I teach various styles of music so whether you're interested in classical theory studies or like would play by ear I am able to teach new ideas and help develop a practice routine to meet your specific needs! In no time, you will be able to perform whatever your musical heart desires. I have a great studio for your learning environment equipped with everything you will need.

Please contact TakeLessons to set up lessons with me.

(I am also a beginning piano teacher, as I also studied classical and jazz piano in college.)

Jerry's method of teaching is gradual and very informative. He takes the time to listen to what's being said, then analyze the student's needs and sets the pace based upon aptitude.

He asks pertinent and relevant questions to determine the processes to apply that will bring about the best results. Very patient! Great first lesson and good study material.

Jerry is the drum instructor for a young man interested in playing the drums in our church. Jerry was a very delightful, caring and knowledgeable instructor. Our young man just loves him and look forward to attending his drum lessons. Real glad we chosen him to work with.
