On time, very professional, amazing skill-set and very patient with my child. We feel fortunate to have Mark as an instructor.

Mark rocks!

Mark’s incredible skill as a drummer is only matched by his abilities as a teacher. In just a short time with Mark’s instruction, I have made vast improvements in my drumming. At my first lesson with Mark, he determined my skill level and what I sought to achieve with my lessons. Almost immediately, the fundamentals Mark showed me were translating into my drumming with my band. Mark has opened doors in my playing that I didn’t know existed. Mark is incredibly patient and really cares about ensuring I receive significant benefit from my lessons. Mark really goes out of his way to make sure I fully grasp everything he shows me. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to learn from a true master at his craft and from a teacher who takes pride in his students and his teaching. Thank you Mark!!

Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students

I have been teaching drums since 2003, and I start my students using The Drumset Musician, by Rick Mattingly and Rod Morgenstein. I also choose materials, from my extensive library, to address the needs of each individual. I am familiar with rock, country, blues, jazz, and world grooves, as well as marching band and orchestra. I teach the components of and purposes of voices within the set, proper grip, reading music, coordination, and feel. I also teach students how to analyze and map songs, so they can excel in a band setting. If a student is wanting to be in marching and symphonic bands, I can prepare them for those pursuits, as well. I have two sets in my studio, as well as abundant hand and auxiliary percussion instruments.

About Tracy

I have been playing the drum set in various bands since 2001. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class, private lessons, and I have been a full time music teacher in

"Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!"

He truly cares about his students and has a positive energy that helps motivate my son to be a better player. Colin has the chops and spectacular sense of timing and song memory. I would recommend Colin to students of all age and ability levels."

"After many years of not playing drums, Evan has done a lot to help me remember how fun it is to have fun on the drums!

His teaching style is creative and interesting in terms of what material he brings and how he incorporates it into what you're working on, he communicates in a way that I find easy to understand, and scheduling and communication outside of the lesson has been a breeze. Our online lessons have been surprisingly easy (as someone new to this way of learning)--Evan's set up is easy to see and hear and feel like you're talking to a human being, and having the lesson recorded and sent over has been hugely helpful for reviewing the material.

Evan also happens to be in my opinion the most creative, interesting, and musical drummer in the city of Seattle, at least that I know of. Highly recommend!"
