Private Drum Teacher

I've been a Drum Set teacher for over 30 years. I base my courses in what I learned at the Drummers Collective in N.Y. I cover as many styles as possible. My main goal as a teacher is for you to become a better drummer, cause a better drummer is happy drummer.

About Alfredo

I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records

Great first lesson. Instructor is both friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to continue doing more lessons with him and learning everything I can.
Kevin
My 12 year old daughter has a learning disability and a noise anxiety but really wanted to take drum lessons. She was extremely nervous and shy at first but Alfredo made her feel relaxed and comfortable. His encouragement and praise really brought out the best in her and after one hour of practicing together, she was able to use her arms and legs independently and keep a beat. He has a knack for explaining things so that even us non-musicians understand. My daughter is already looking forward to her next lesson which is a nice surprise compared to previous instruments and activities she's tried. Highly recommended.

Alfredo is a great instructor and he has a true passion for the drums.

Online Drum Teacher

I'm a Berklee alum who was fortunate to study with Alan Dawson, and still use a lot of what I learned from him in my teaching. I've toured around the world playing drums as well as recording on both coasts and CO, and I most recently taught at the Aurora School of Rock for 4 1/2 years. I tailor each lesson individually for each student to make the learning experience unique and educational. You won't learn if it isn't fun, and I make it fun.

About Carl

Hi, I've been playing drums since I was 13 and have gotten to play all over the US, up in Canada and in Japan. I've recorded many albums and still record to this day. Before I decided to do the teaching and recording thing from home, I taught for over 4 years at the Aurora CO School of Rock, so I

Carl gave my daughter drum lessons over the course of a few years and I can honestly say after every lesson she had she had something good to say. Carl is a very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor and watching my daughter's skill level increase because of his instruction was great. I highly recommend Carl as an instructor.
Brittany
Carl is a wonderful instructor! He was able to help our very shy daughter progress from basic drums to more advanced drums, culminating in performance ready songs. She always enjoyed his instruction and has positive feedback on her time with Carl.

Rhonda
James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!
Heather
My son has been taking drum lessons from James for a few years now and has grown so much in his love of music and his ability to play. He looks forward to his lesson every week. We are grateful to James for cultivating his passion.

"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 know a bit about drums myself, but wanted to find a professional instructor to teach my son. I've met a lot of teachers in San Diego who advertise that they teach a lot of different instruments and found that most of them know very little about drums and percussion (usually just basic rhythms that they learned from other instruments, and a few rudiments). Garrett on the other hand is exactly what my wife and I were looking for for our son. He specializes in drum set and percussion, is professional and very mature for his age, and an excellent teacher (I've learned a lot from the lessons as well). He gets along great with my son as well, and inspires him to practice hard throughout the week. We'll be sticking with Garrett for a very long time."

How to Build the Perfect Drum Practice Routine

You have to practice drums if you want to improve, but how can you make your practice time more productive? Here, Rosendale NY drum instructor Alan S. shares his strategy to help you create an effective drum practice routine... Progress does not always happen in a straight line. During my years playing drums, I've been through periods of quick improvement, as well as darker times of actually getting worse. I've also been through phases of staying at the same level: In my case, instead of …
