I have over 30 years as a professional musician and studied under the best in my community. I perform with top level, award winning musicians and have toured US and Europe. As an instructor, I've churned out over 400 students over my 12 year teaching career. Many of my students tour with their own bands and or perform in their high school marching and jazz band. I work from industry standard material and include my own lesson strategy that's proved trident true over the course of my teaching career. I've won many awards and have been furthering my music education when I'm not touring or recording. I don't have any degrees but am considered one of the best drummers in Tucson. I've performed on stage and recordings with many well known drummers. A few to name, are Tommy Larkin's, Ed Shemanski and Winston Watson. I proficient teaching any style and have applied all styles into my repertoire while performing and recording. I teach drummers how to become a musician, not just a drummer. ...

Aidan did a wonderful job helping my son learn percussion- several instruments. He is patient and empathetic, and great with even young kids. I appreciate that he tries to let the kids do things that are fun for them while still teaching the basics.

About James

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.

My teaching style is very flexible & hands on. My goal is to make beautiful music and I do this by taking technical exercises and giving them musical meaning. This means I focus on the ideas of time, vocabulary & dynamic playings, but within this still teaching essential technical exercises in order to create a well-rounded musician.

After each lesson I will email detailed notes, as well as any supplemental documents and/or music.

Percussion was my first love! I've been a percussionist for over 20 years and can instruct in most styles and genres. My specialty is heavily drum-set oriented but I can instruct beginners through intermediate players on a full range of percussion instruments.

About Charles

Hi! I’m so glad you stumbled upon my TakeLessons profile because it means that you’re a step closer to becoming a ‘real’ musician. But before you call up images of cold concert halls and stuffy, tuxedoed audiences or international superstars selling out arenas, let me briefly explain what it mean

And, Scott is super-nice!

HIGHLY recommend Scott for drummers of any age and level."

"Excellent Teacher

Mike is a great Drum instructor. I am a beginner and felt he did a great job with my skill level. He has a lesson plan but is very flexible in learning the style of music you want to hear. He helps you achieve the goal you have with drums whether it is to be in a band or just for a hobby.

Lessons are fun and detailed without being boring."

"I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best."

"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."

"Fantastic!

Brad worked with me as a drum teacher from the ages from 11-16. Brad encouraged me day by day at each lesson, the encouragement resulted in the constant addition of new skills and great competence, Brad encouraged me to play in many different styles and situations and provided opportunities that allowed me to stretch myself out of my comfort zone in many situations. In outside situations I was not required to "try out" due to my well-known skills. I would recommend Brad's teaching expertise to anyone interested in learning drums or continuing to expand their skills."

"Bobby has a wealth of knowledge and passion about music and can help you learn how to play your favorite songs on drums from any genre (alternative, indie, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classic rock, dance and more). 2 months ago, I knew nothing about drums, and in just 9 lessons so far I can now play a handful of songs and grooves. I learn so much each lesson, and Bobby does everything he can to help me succeed. I highly recommend Bobby."

"A good musician is not necessarily a good teacher. Most musicians do not know how to teach, period.

A good music teacher not only knows how to perform on his/instrument well but knows the art and technique of imparting the knowledge. Those are two totally different skills.

Ray is one of those rare guys to come around who has both skill well developed: he is a great musician, a great pro drummer who knows how to put himself in the student's shoes and thus can impart to the student exactly what the student needs in order to make progress.

Add to that a great positive personality and passion to boot and you have a great teacher and mentor.

I took "Advanced Drum Chart Reading" lessons and "Group Performance Workshops" classes from Ray at Cornel School of Contemporary Music and I am continuing studying with him after my graduation. I highly recommend him."
