Beginning students will begin studying from the book "Progressive Drum Grooves" by Craig Lauritsen which he/she will be required to have each lesson.

Although instructor will have drumsticks, brushes etc. students should carry them along for every lesson.

A drum set or practice pad will be a very crucial part in seeing growth from our lessons.

(2nd Kit) "ideal for young children"
Fusion sized Mapex drum set with cymbals. 18" bass drum

The lesson room also has a PA system for CD/MP3 player capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide practice pad if needed. If student is learning the drum set they will need to supply for in-home lessons.

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.
