Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have a background in fundamental rhythm, rather than teaching the student to simply play, I teach them to read and write their own rhythms and drum beats in a fun and hands-on manner using methods that music teachers around the country use in their classrooms. Furthermore, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 4 years old from their very first lesson. I’ve developed my own method for children to read drum music using simple and an easy to understand rhythmic language.

2013

My name is Trevor Sellman and I’m excited to help you learn to play drums and percussion. I have over 12+ years of experience playing and 5 years teaching. I hold a Bachelors in Music Business with a focus on percussion and drum set. I’ve taught students from ages 4 to 50 and I enjoy giving every person the opportunity to pick up some sticks and learn. I’ve played styles from jazz to heavy rock, orchestral to country and everything in between, there’s no style that I’m uncomfortable teaching. I look forward to meeting you and having fun while learning the fundamentals of rhythm, drums, and percussion.
