Take online drum lessons with Andy and learn drumming from home! 

I love to help students achieve their goals in music! I customize lessons for each student, point out their successes, and share with them how to improve. I have a smart setup with 2 drumsets, headphone monitoring, metronome, play along tracks, and microphones.

Why take lessons?
There is no substitute for one-on-one instruction tailored to fit each student's needs. Imagine having the chance to practice a sport with an Olympic coach! Unlike traditional academic tutoring, lessons are helpful for students who struggle, students in the middle of the pack, and students who excel and need enrichment.

Mr. Pruyn has been teaching my middle school daughter for the past 2.5 years. The progress she has made is astounding. He is the right mix of detail oriented and encouraging. He is what every music teacher should be, and I should know because I am one myself. I Ccnnot rate him highly enough.

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

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!
Kristin
Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!
Aidan
I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band (includes marching band) and acoustic drum-set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. In the end, I want my students to be comfortable and confident when performing with bandmates in front of an audience. If you are comfortable and confident then you will have fun. It all works together. Parents are welcome to sit in and listen.
