Let’s make some NOISE! Develop your inner rockstar as I teach you the ins and outs of the drums!
Arguably one of the loudest instruments, the drums are also one of the most fun to play! As a drummer who has been playing and performing for more than 15 years, I know just how much fun can be had from behind “the kit,” and I can’t wait to share my knowledge with you in a positive, nurturing, and professional environment. In our lessons, we will learn a range of patterns and rudiments, how to read drum sheet music and play to a metronome, proper grip and stroke technique, playing dynamically and with feel, coordination, stage performance “dos and don’ts,” and more. Join me as I teach you the basic concepts of the drums in a hands-on and practical manner so you can start rocking out as early as possible!
About Veronica F.

Hello there! My name is Veronica, and as a drummer, singer, and all around creative located in the U.S., I am wild about music and I can’t wait to share that love with you! Working with children is my specialty, and I have taught within the public school system for 5 years; I have worked with children as a volunteer instructor and counselor at a non-profit organization for 10+ years; and I presently teach drums to children for a local performing arts school. In addition to working with children, I have performed and played the drums for 15+ years, trained with some of the best and brightest in the industry, and I have extensive experience as a vocal performer (30+ years!). With my lessons, I like to create a positive experience for my students, and you can expect: ● A high level of attention, professionalism, creativity, and FUN! ● An immediate hands-on and contextual approach to get students playing their instrument as soon as possible while incorporating music theory fundamentals. ● Imaginative learning to help students enjoy the lessons while employing practical application and reinforcing core principles. ● Progress that is achieved at an individualized pace suitable to each student’s level of proficiency. One of my greatest achievements is being able to share my affinity for music and to witness that spark of joy and enlightenment that others experience when they learn something new. Let's get started today!

Ms. Veronica is knowledgeable, patient and courteous. She has a passion for the drums and it shows in her teaching. My son was nervous before his recital, but her belief in him and her encouraging words gave him the confidence to play - and he did great! She has been the best music teacher we have had thus far!

Mrs. Veronica is an awesome teacher. My boys and I love her. She is so patient, caring, knowledgeable, friendly and FUN!!! She has given us the confidence we needed to accomplish our dreams little by little. She takes time to explain everything so you don't feel rushed and that makes learning easier. She deserve 100 STARS!!!

I just want to say that Mrs. Veronica is an amazing teacher! My daughter loves attending drum lessons and she has told me time and time again, "Mrs. Veronica helped me to learn things with the drums I never thought I could do!" The encouragement, support and structure she provides is exceptional and I am thankful for a teacher like this!
