Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
You will learn how meditation applies to music, and how you can use meditation to not only transform your life, but also your playing. If you can not quiet and still the mind, it is very hard to learn anything, especially music. A busy mind also gets in the way once you have learned to play drums, or any other instrument by trying to distract you from playing while performing. Learn some simple techniques to focus and become a channel of music so you can perform like a pro.

Hi, my name is Lucas, and I'm excited to be a part of the Take Lessons team.

I've been teaching Music and Meditation since 2004, and have developed tools and techniques that make learning easy and fun.

Whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned pro, I am here to help you reach new levels in your practice, and to assist you in growing to your full potential.

I graduated from Musician's Institute of Hollywood CA, and earned a degree in Percussion in 2007. I'm an experienced and drive person and my teaching style is adaptable and effective.

I studied Meditation and Nutrition at the Optimum Health Institute San Diego, am Krya Yoga Certified, and Have taught workshops and events privately as well as for groups.

I am the #1 Best Selling author "Drum and Grow Rich", and "Lucid Meditation - Your Guide To Gaining Freedom, Focus, & Fulfillment". I wrote, played and produced a full length musical meditation album in the style of EDM, and am happy to help you create your own album too!

You will get huge take always from every lesson, because I really figure out what will help you progress the fastest towards your goals. I look forward to connecting, and helping guide you on your journey!
