Hand drumming is so much more than just beating a drum. There is an essence about it that speaks through your soul. Lessons with me will be a unique experience because along with learning the basic fundamentals of hand drumming, but we will learn how to listen to those around us in order to have an all encompassing experience. It will be light, fun, informative, and we will go at whatever pace feels good for you, the student! I've been around drumming and drum circles for over ten years now and have come to have a very individual, impactful style for those around me. I look forward to sharing what I know!

About Jessica

Drumming is one of my life’s deepest passions. I was introduced to the art at The Great Blue Heron Music Festival drum circle. I was captivated by the scene: dozens of people creating impromptu rhythms together, on the spot, giving others sounds to dance to around the massive bonfire, all feeling t

My lessons are both fun and educational, with flexibility to honor each student's needs and goals. During my time as a drummer, I have had the pleasure of studying music with Dr. Richard Ripani, Eddie Bell, and renowned big band drummer Duffy Jackson in Nashville, TN. I graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Studio Music/Jazz Performance at UT Knoxville, studying with Professor Keith Brown. I want to pass on all the knowledge I gained from them to you! See you soon!

Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Are you ready to improve your skills?

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson. The tailored lessons make for a low pressure learning environment to fit your needs. As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

"Brent is an extremely talented musician and teacher as well as a kind and thoughtful person. My 14-year-old son has been taking drum lessons with Brent since 2016 and his progress has been phenomenal. Over the years Brent has been a respectful and supportive mentor, and has contributed to my son’s love for playing a musical instrument and honing his skill.

Brent has the ability to incorporate his musical training and knowledge in an easy-going yet structured manner, which has been very relatable to my son. Always mindful, Brent would express interest in what my son enjoys listening to, and/or would like to play on the drums, and integrate that with exposure to other genres, necessary musical theory, musicianship and technical skills. He would also provide valuable tidbits throughout the lesson and has pointed us to numerous helpful resources to aid in my son’s skill advancement. My son enjoys every lesson and actually practices without check-ins from Mom - no small feat for a 14-year old boy! (We have had the opportunity to see Brent play live a few times, which has been tremendously inspirational to my son.)

Brent is a great communicator and a wonderful resource when we have technical questions. He also lets us know in advance when a lesson may need to be rescheduled.

We feel very fortunate to have Brent as a teacher, as not only is my son learning about music, there are life lessons incorporated as well.

Thank you Brent!"
