Private Drum Teacher

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Shiv is a great teacher, he is practical, uses songs to get you started and keep you interested in learning drums. He is young and has been learning music from very young age. It is relief for me when i go to drums classes as it clears my mind away from daily grind.
Ekta
My son took drum lessons from Shiv for a short time. Shiv really connected with my son and sparked an interest by starting with my son’s favorite songs. We could not continue due to conflict of timings.

Shiv has been teaching our son since he was 6yrs old and although he’s young, he’s great with connecting with the students and explaining things to help you understand. My son really enjoys his lessons & we highly recommend Shiv. He has a passion for music & tracing and he’s really good at it.

Online Drum Teacher

I currently work with kids from middle school through high school. I’m able to teach a beginner or the more advanced young percussionist and this has allowed me to be analyze a wide range of problems that typical beginners have and how to carry them confidently to the high school level and of course past the high school level since i’m a lifelong learner myself and a gigging percussionist.

No matter how young or old it’s never to late to learn the art of drums.

About Marcus

No drums are not easy and Yes it will take a lot of effort. If you’re looking for someone that will lie to you and tell you this will be easy and that you have nothing to worry about then you need to find someone else. You’ll get frustrated, might feel like giving up, some days you will go to bed t

About Brian

The only thing I've ever wanted to do was play drums. My parents bought me my first drum set at age 6. I've spent my whole life learning how to be good at what I love. I still study and practice almost every day, but now I pass my knowledge on to others. If you want to see one of my early students

Brian is amazing! I've personally seen many of his student's go on and achieve big things. His ability to relate and teach, gives you the tools and confidence to make your music goals/dreams come true. Highly recommend!
Alex
Brian taught drums to me for probably four or five years, and it was seriously great. I always looked forward to having lessons with him because I knew I'd learn a lot and most importantly it would be fun. I don't take lessons anymore but I still think about many of the things he taught me when I sit down to practice. He definitely helped shape me into the drummer I am today and I'm proud to say he taught me.
Rachel
Brian was my son’s first drum teacher. He was amazing! Ethan really learned the basics of how to play and enjoy the drums. We wish Brian lived closer so we could continue to have him as a teacher.

"I had joined Keith just based on the star ratings here and now I think it is my time to give back to the community. It was not until a month after being his student that I read all the reviews below (I had taken a leap of faith). Until then, I didn't know that Keith has performed/ managed such famous bands. That's what defines Keith- a highly experienced performer, a great teacher, and a very down to earth and extremely humble person. I took some extra time getting used to the musical notes and holding the sticks. Keith was very patient with me and recognized exactly where I was lacking. His method of teaching is wonderful and very adaptive to students' needs. It is a delight to learn from him every week."

"Henri is an excellent teacher! I have been a teacher myself for more than 15 years and I recommend him without reservation. He works with my daughter who is five years old and she is always excited about her lessons. She is making excellent progress and is eager to do more. She feels well-supported by Henri who encourages her to take risks with her playing while making her feel that she is doing a great job. Music lessons with this teacher are well worth the money and an excellent investment. We are lucky to have found him!"

"I took up the drums at age 35 and took lessons with Keith for about a year - I give him my highest recommendation and would encourage other prospective drummers to seek him out! He has a contagious enthusiasm for both music and teaching, and I genuinely looked forward to my lessons. Learning drums (particularly as an adult) is a potentially frustrating endeavor, but Keith's methods emphasize constant progress: with every lesson I could feel and hear myself getting better. Practicing never felt like drudgery; rather, he motivated me to continue to learn at a comfortable pace.

He is both a talented musician and a gifted instructor, and I recommend him without reservation!

"Mike is AWESOME!

From the enthusiasm you see while he teaches you, to the way he gets up to dance to your drum beat, it's no surprise that Mike is very passionate about drums!!

Not gonna lie, I was a little skeptical finding a random dude on the internet for drum lessons, but I've been PLEASANTLY surprised by the progression I've been making so far.

Mike is very laid back (a pretty funny guy too) yet at the same time he pushes you to progress from where you're at and helps you work through your sticking/trouble points. He also prioritizes that you have a solid, firm foundation, before moving onto the next skill set.

Overall I'd give Mike TWO DRUM STICKS up!!!

I plan to continue my lessons under Mike and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in taking their drum skills to the next level."

How to Read Drum Sheet Music | How to Play Drums

Think drummers don't need to read music? Think again! Drum sheet music is a great way to learn your favorite beats and write things out so you will remember them later. Drum sheet music is written on the same five line staff as traditional music. At the beginning of the piece, you'll see the time signature. Written like a fraction (4/4 or 7/8, for example), the time signature lets you know how many beats to play in each measure and what the rhythm should be. You should also see the number of …
