Teaching since:

Hi, I’m Tim. I have a passion for drumming and teaching students of all ages and abilities. Above all things, I want my drum lessons to be fun while being informative and challenging. I believe everyone has some sense of rhythm that may just need a little guidance. My lessons put a focus on important “base-line” developmental concepts like reading notation and technique. Students will learn what they want to learn without missing out on the essentials. Guiding students to their “Ah-ha” moment is why I love to teach.

I've been playing drums for 18+ years and teaching/performing for 16+ years. I’ve been in several original bands and am currently the back-line drummer for the house band at Howl At The Moon in Ballpark Village in St. Louis, MO.

The Studio has 2 traditional kits set up [a student kit and an instructor kit] and a home-made electronic kit. Hand percussion instruments include a Djembe, Bongos, Cajon, and Bongo Cajon. We can also utilize audio and video recording in the studio.
