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

Online Drum Teacher

I am a well-rounded drum teacher, meaning I have learned and studied genres ranging from blues, jazz, rock and indie rock. I will give you tons of music to listen to and interpret and teach you how to learn tunes by ear. You will understand the forms of jazz tunes such as aaba Aba and abc. You will learn how to play the tunes you listen to and take the concepts of drum beats and drum rudiments used within them o make them your own and use them in your original playing. I also teach how to read standard drum notation, and can teach you how time signatures work and the values of notes if you don’t already know.

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eli was great. He was very patient with my son during his very first music lesson. Eli made the lesson fun and enjoyable. My son enjoyed the lesson very much and is looking forward to his next one.

Learning drums is extremely fun and satisfying! It involves the entire body and the mind, challenging in many different ways and extremely rewarding.

While it can be demanding to learn an instrument, it can be as easy as you want it to be. Our lessons can be designed to fit your personal goal. In the lessons we will play songs, study technique and reading and learn different genres of music - all while having fun!

I have been teaching for over 10 years, with experience in all levels (Beginner to Advanced) and in every age group. I am very passionate about teaching music, I believe it has the power to change lives, and also helps with just putting a smile on your face :)

I had a great experience with Noam. Each lesson had a structure as we explored various elements in each lesson covering a lot of ground. Noam is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. Noam has the ability to take a complex concept and break it down until you grasp it completely. Each lesson was productive and enjoyable. Thank you Noam!
Lauren L.
Noam is an excellent drum tutor!

He is so knowledgeable about the drums and passionate about sharing that knowledge. His lessons are well structured to make the most of the time available to practice existing skills and learn new techniques, as well as being fun!

He takes the time to really focus on your existing technique in order to iron out any bad habits and he breaks down new techniques in a simple and easy to learn manner.

Highly recommended!

Noam is a fantastic teacher! I had a great time learning with him. He was very patient, creative and supportive. We studied different genres of music and went through rhythms from all around the world - it was so interesting. Noam was always very punctual and super professional. Highly recommended!

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.

"If you have been looking for a great drum teacher, Michael is your last stop! He has the ability to communicate with the students and parents and make drumming fun. His students response to him very well and enjoy going to weekly lesson.
My son started with Michael when he entered 6th grade and is now a Junior playing for Marina HS Marching Band, Drum line, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band.
If you have the time and sit in a lesson with your children, you will soon realize that your money is well spent...not a wasted minute in that 1/2 hour lesson."

"I was lucky to randomly sign-up for a drum course & meet Alexa!! She's been 1 of two favorite teaches in life & will forever remain a friend. She respects a student's musical interests while teaching from a place of support & serious devotion to her work. She encouraged my learning by letting me freely explore what I was musically curious about and had the depth of expertise to encourage my direction. From first lessons, through suggesting I find a band, attending my live performances, encouraging special summer workshops, and inviting me to her performances, Alexa is devotion supported me through years of maturing into a credible drummer. She's not only a supportive expert in her field, but a guide to what it means to become a drummer from encouraging action/performance as an integral part of learning this instrument. I am off to college in the fall, majoring in music, focused on drums and guitar. Thank you Alexa!!!"

"Taking drum lessons with Henri has improved my sound incredibly. Henri does more then improve my chops technically, Henri has taught me how to play musically. Henri set me free on the drums, teaching me how to breathe while I play and to hit with confidence. My friends and family have been commenting on how great I sound on the drums lately. It is awesome. I highly recommend taking drum lessons with Henri."

"Jimmy is the best instructor ever!! I went into playing drums not really having any knowledge of music what so ever. I have been playing for 7 months now and I have learned so much. He is so encouraging and is always giving you positive feedback on how your doing and it makes you feel good about yourself and how you play. I am always learning new things about my instrument and how important my roll as a musician is no matter who I am playing with or for. With Jimmy the lessons might be once a week but he is always there no matter what day or time to help you out with any questions you may have. He is the best there is no one else like him!!! Every lesson is fun and I look forward to going every week!!"
