I have mostly taught beginner drummers to get the basics down. -separating the limbs to work independently - rudiments - basic beats and grooves used in popular music - and how to read it and write it on paper if you are interested.

also - "how to count" ...and "understanding song structure"

I have also worked with a few excellent, established drummers on "what to play in the studio" and how to be a good session player...how to be consistent and simplify.... etc

About Billy
I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing studen
ts for college music classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next.

Each person learns differently and I am good at connecting with how you learn - then we can use a book or CD or not according to your needs.

I have several books to choose from as well as CDs and other tools. BUT .....some things are learned best through 1 on 1 instruction and explanation without a book.

I like to see progress every week and I usually do.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs instrument only to start and discuss from there.
I have many tuners, metronomes, props, books, etc

*** Specialties ***
I teach using modern popular songs as vehicles but back up examples with theory and some reading and ear training.
I usually get quick results and my students can understand the music as well as play it.

Billy is a great teacher with a wealth of music knowledge and experience! Our 9-year old son is taking guitar lessons with him. Billy has met him right where he's at, and has made the lessons fun and engaging for my boy. GREAT WORK, BILLY!!!

Since this was the first time venturing into playing an instrument and reading music, Billy was very patient with me. I left the lesson knowing more about the ukulele, the C scale, and the C F & G chords. I highly recommend Billy.

We will approach developing skills on the drums in two categories, sticking techniques and grooves. Each lessons we will go over sticking patterns and learn a groove that corresponds with the sticking. Grooves will cover various genres like Rock, R&B/Neo Soul, Gospel, Jazz, Latin - Jazz.

About Quamon
I've been playing saxophone for over 20 years and hold a degree in music performance. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of traveling and performing as a professional along with being recognized for various awards for my improvisational and compositional skills. I've released 5 CD's of my own which showcase a lot of my original music. One of my targets in helping students is to help bring out what they already have inside their soul. I had great teachers that helped me to better express what I was hearing and imagining inside, and I want to pour into my students out of the abundance
of what I've received from my teachers in addition to my own personal experience in the area of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to start out by breaking down how I look at music from the stand point of it having two sides, a technical side & a conceptual side.

The technical side deals with all of the mechanical things needed for one to have together to get around on the instrument first like, sound production, tone quality, scales, arpeggios, etc.

The Concept side deals with what music the student came up listening to from the stand point of what genre, what artists, what songs, etc. Then, I'll need to know what are the goals that are desired to be accomplished based on what the student projects conceptually by way of the artists that they like.

Then in future lessons we can break down the details on how to actually get to the desire goal of the student.

I've been receiving instruction from Quamon for a little over one month, and I'm very impressed with my progression. Quamon is very patient and knowledgeable. His assignments and homework are tailored according to my interests, and I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in improving their musicianship.

I have performed and recorded with many artists including Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Patti Labelle and Larry Carlton. I specialize in drum set, school band, jazz band, auditions, and drumline. I focus on what the individual student wants from lessons (learning songs, preparing for auditions or to be in a band, technique, reading, etc). Some of my students have gone on to University of North Texas and Berklee School of Music. I have students that play with King Diamond, Collective Soul, Paul Rogers (Bad Compay)... I have performed on television including Americas got Talent.

I've been teaching beginner/intermediate skill levels for drums for the past few years now and enjoy every moment of it. Within the first few lessons you will be playing your first drum beat. I specialize in fundamentals, playing by ear and progressing students into an advance state.

About Chad
Hello everyone my name is Chad, I've been playing drums for 27 years, I'm self taught and can play by ear. Starting out is frustrating and personally, I wish I would have had someone to teach me in the beginning. I've only been teaching for a few years now, but it has been a great experience and I want to continue to grow as a teacher. I'm happy to teach at my studio In Haltom City or at your location provided its within 25 miles of Haltom City or Benbrook where I reside. I've had the pleasure to play in various rock, classic rock and blues bands in multiple venues over the years. I specialize
in teaching beginner/intermediate skill levels and look forward to hearing from you soon.
