Billy H.

Arlington, TX

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.

Stephen B.

Fort Worth, TX

About Stephen

I have played alto saxophone since 2001 and drums since 2004. After I realized that music is what I wanted to pursue as a career, I attended Cedar Valley College where I studied music theory I-IV, jazz standards, improvising and classical repertoire. Through my studies I have learned various ways of teaching including slow practice, repetition, call and response as well as tricks that make learning fun.

*** Lesson Details ***
In order to make learning accessible, I find it easier to teach when the student is interested in their subject. I like to focus on making music fun, while still lear
ning. I'm a laid back person, but I have always needed to practice in order to get better so I expect my students to practice as well. Students will not only learn to play their instrument, but will learn that it can be an outlet for their creativity and expression. 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide sight reading material, music stand and drumsticks when necessary.
I expect drummers to own drum set(if possible) or at minimum own practice pad for beginners.

*** Specialties ***
I use a mimic technique where I play and have the student playback the same thing until it sounds correct. I also like to utilize hands on techniques so that it will apply to real world situations.
For drum set I have specialized in rock, but have tried to learn a variety of styles to become an asset such as jazz, R & B, metal, punk, pop and some Latin grooves.

Thank you Stephen!

Stephen was our son's first drum teacher and the experience was wonderful! He was very patient with Max, helped us pick and set up Max's first drum set, and provided extra material. We will miss Stephen as he has decided to move to Dallas. Best wishes to you Stephen and thank you for all your time!

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 have performed on television including Americas got Talent.

Daniel E.

Arlington, TX

Students can expect to be taught lessons that will not only help them improve but also have fun. I believe that music should be not only intense practice and learning but fun at the same time. In showing my students rudiments, grooves, fills, techniques, tips and tricks I will teach concepts that can later be applied on to the drum-set.

About Daniel

Hello, my name is Daniel Espino and I have been playing the drums for a little over 15 years. I grew up and still play at church. I am a church musician and have experience with church music. I am self-taught but I later studied with a private lessons teacher. I not only have a passion for playing music, but sharing the talent that Jesus Christ has given me. I hope to share it with you!
