Charles Stewart is a very personable instructor. This first lesson was very well - paced. He explained everything in detail and he gave me enough practise in the lesson so that I know what to do, on my own, during the week.
Gloria D.
Great teacher. Very patient and observant. He tells you where your strengths and weaknesses are and develops a plan to assist you in overcoming your weaknesses. My left hand is weak but the more I practice on the assignments the more I become confident in my success.
Kenyatta K.
My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

We will develop solid time, technique, reading, and rudiments. To foster musicality we will focus on critical listening . We will focus on effective practicing to maximize our efforts. We will learn to apply rudiments and stickings around the drums for interesting and dynamic fills. We will play together to focus on listening and ensemble skills. We also have the ability to record our lessons for later review.

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Looking for an experienced drum teacher who creates individualized lesson plans and weekly practice goals so that you get the most out of your drumming? An active professional drummer, I perform with Blue Man Group Chicago and multiple jazz and rock/pop groups. I hold multiple positions as an educator, directing high school percussion and jazz ensembles and teaching drum set at the college level. I believe music makes the world a better place, and I’m passionate about helping more people fulfill their musical potential on the drums!

With two college degrees in Jazz Drums and Percussion, over a decade of experience teaching everyone from 3-year-olds to professional drummers, and a long performance resume, I have the insight and background to help you succeed on drums no matter where you're starting from. I take pride in offering carefully-planned, focused, and goal-oriented lessons and following them up with custom-made practice plans.

I consider myself a perpetual student, and am ...

My high school son has taken lessons from Lucas Gillan for the past three years and has grown musically under his instruction. Lucas brings much expertise and motivation to each lesson, I highly recommend Lucas for percussion lessons!
Megan
Lucas rocks! He was my daughters teacher for an amazing 5 years. She learned so much from him. From rock, jazz, tenor drum in high school marching band, to snare drum in a famous Chicago bagpipe band. He’s very patient and very gifted. We miss having him in our home, felt like a family member.
Riley
I really appreciated having Lucas as a drum teacher. He is skilled in adapting to the needs of the student and setting specific goals to achieve those needs. He also teaches how to practice effectively and ways to vary practicing routines to approach different skills of drumming (ex. listening exercises, transcription, improving feel of a grove, etc.). Lastly, he is a great person to interact with and encourages you no matter where you are at in your drumming career. Highly recommend if you need a drum teacher!

Chris
I am a sax player and amateur drum enthusiast. Scott and I toured for a few years together.
He was always figuring things out in the van with his trusty air drumset. When he could finally sit down at his set, he would pretty much have the idea figured out and ready to apply to reality.
We would talk endlessly about various drum and rhythm topics and he very effortlessly talked me through techniques and ideas. I’ve learned a great deal from him.
On top of that, he is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.
There’s a fire inside of him and it comes out through his playing and interpersonal relationships in a beautiful way.

Nikki
Scott is an enthusiastic and gifted music teacher´┐╝ with a wealth of experience that he generously shares.
We were looking for a flexible, knowledgeable, yet reliable teacher who would inspire our son to grow his own musical talent. We were blessed to find Scott, who fit those roles wonderfully. Our son enjoyed and benefited from the interactions with Scott. We recommend him without a doubt.
Bob
Scott is an incredibly knowledgeable drummer. He possesses a wealth of wisdom on the drums that he has gained through years of professional gigging experience "on the front lines" so to speak. A kind hearted fellow who's love of music comes through in everything he does. He can help you be a better musician; he can help you be a better person.

She was able to perform at Merkin Music hall with drum solo. David teaches not only the drum techniques, but also music appreciation, learning strategies. As a parent, I also benefit from his teaching philosophy. He is such a wonderful teach and we feel lucky we have him as my daughter's teacher."

"My son started learning the drums at age 5. Not only is he able to keep a beat but he is learning to read music. He is also being taught proper drumming techniques and that there is more to it than just banging sticks. Within these past two years, Mike built his confidence and gave him enough skills to go perform at his school's talent show. Each lesson my son comes out smiling and has a sense of accomplishment. He says his lessons are fun and that Mike is a cool teacher. Mike shows that he loves to teach and I couldnt be more pleased!!!!"
