Hello to all, My name is Ronen and I am originally from Tel-Aviv, Israel.

I came to the United States to pursue my academic career in music and graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007, majoring in Professional Music. My coursework included Music Theory, Music Technology, and Music Business as well as other related professional music courses. My practical experience included private lessons with internationally renowned drummers such as Dave Dicenso, Kenwood Denard, and Mike Mangini. Additionally, my hands-on classes included Rudimental Labs, Drum Labs, Fusion Labs, Studio Drumming Lab, Contemporary Applications for Percussion, and Afro-Cuban Drumming. Through this broad curriculum, I have expanded my cultural understanding of music.

With more than fifteen years of solid experience in the music world and teaching field, I am a highly professional drum teacher and have been instructing students of all ages and levels informatively and creatively. Students under my teaching methods are engaged with numerous styles of music and cultures, and develop gradually while achieving excellent music and performance skills.


*** Lesson Details ***
In general, and depending on the student requirements, I teach drum rudiments, music notation, a range of styles, drum tuning and setup. As part of my method, I divide my class/lesson into four sections, which begins with warm ups and proceed with drum rudiments and coordination. I devote the second portion of the lesson to reading and playing orchestral snare drum pieces, and in the third section, students practice different types of rhythms. In these lessons, as well as in private classes, I use drum-method books such as Joel Rothman's Mini-Monster Book of Rock Drumming by Joel Rothman (Fort Lauderdale, Fla: J.R. Publications, 1981), Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer by Jim Chapin (New York: Jim Chapin, 1971), Ted Reed’s Progressive steps to syncopation for the modern drummer (Van Nuys, California: Alfred, 1996), as well as many music charts. In the last portion of the session, I engage students in an open discussion about their progress, improvements and goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I teach students separately and collectively. During my lessons, I teach drum rudiments, how to read drums’ musical notation, various rhythm styles such as rock, funk, shuffle, and drum tuning and setup. I divide my classes into four sections beginning with warm ups, which included drum rudiments and coordination; the second portion of the class is devoted to reading and playing orchestral snare drum piece, and in the third section, students are practicing various rhythms, where I included books such as Mini-Monster Book Of Rock Drumming by Joel Rothman, Four way coordination by Jim Chapin as well as various music sheets. The last portion is devoted to an open discussion and enable the students to ask questions which were not discussed during the lesson.

Ronen really rocks! He is terrific with my son who can tend to have a short attention span and be fidgety. His explainations of the lessons are clear for my son comprehend and he is very patient. The lesson at Ronen's home which is very welcoming and he leaves in a great neighborhood which is a plus.
