Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I teach a wide variety of students ranging from beginners to advanced, with my youngest student being 5 years old and my oldest in his late 50's. I believe whether you are a beginner, thinking about music as a hobby or someone who wishes to pursue music as a career, I am positive I can cultivate and grow your musical capabilities based on your specific needs.

Providing my students with knowledge from a musician who is actively furthering their career is important to me, I want my students to know that I am aggressively pushing the boundaries of drumming alongside artists such as Grayson Erhard, Emma Mayes & the Hip, and my own jazz influenced hip-hop trio Smirk.

My name is Ryan and I offer private drum lessons.

Music, specifically drumming, is my passion. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to make a living performing & teaching drums. Watching a student work on a new song for months and finally get to the point where they are ready to perform it is a truly great feeling. Many of my students have been with me since they started playing drums, I feel very grateful to maintain such fantastic students.

Any time I have a show locally in Colorado, I often put one of my students & their family on the guest list and allow them to come backstage and see what it's like to perform on stage in front of a crowd. This offers the student an opportunity to see their teacher perform and a fun night for the family.

You can catch me performing locally with Grayson Erhard, Emma Mayes & the Hip, and Smirk.
