Private Drum Teacher

I want to make sure my students have a good time learning drums but I also want to make sure they learn a lot..! I always make sure to ask my students what they want to learn and what their favorite music is... after that, I figure out what type of lessons to plan out.

Private Drum Teacher

My approach to lessons as always be centered around the needs of the student and what is the student is wanting to learn. For example if the student has a favorite song they are wanting to learn how to play then I create a lesson plan that is designed to learn how to play that song. I beleive goals are instrumental to one's success and what they can set out to acheive which is why I like to set up goals with each of my students that we are always working towards. This also helps to monitor progress in how far that student has come along the way, which is incredibly rewarding for everyone.

In addition to teaching I am also a very active performer both live on stage and in the studio. This experience working with so many bands and artists gives me the ability to teach a very wide range of subjects as well. Some examples of things I teach are begining beats to advanced beats, rudiments, creating fill and solo ideas, playing in differnt meters (time signatures), working with a click ...

About Joshua

I have been playing drums since 1998. Back in 98 I had a friend who I would go skateboarding with after school. Once we finished skating we would go back to his place. His older brother had a drum kit and was in a band but didn't really play it and didn't mind if I did. So after skating I would mes

Online Drum Teacher

Whether you're just starting out, wanting to learn Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, or even Taylor Swift repertoire, maybe you're preparing for band or college auditions, or just simply looking to broaden your playing with different styles like jazz, latin, etc., I am here to guide you and help you develop the necessary skills!

I have been teaching drumset for over 15 years. My lessons focus on applying technique and reading, with snare reading exercises and learning popular songs. Lessons will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals.

My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, become independent learners, while having fun along the way!

Joan taught my son from first time to an advanced beginner. She was very patient and extremely helpful. My son was fully engaged in his lessons and always enjoyed his time with Joan. Joan was very dependable, always on time for lessons and always flexible with her scheduling. She also assisted in purchasing a drumset for my son. I would recommend Joan to anyone looking to learn the drums.

Mike is a very good Teacher.
I have a 7 years old son that loves him. He is very polite and professional working with the kids.
I totally recommend him to everyone.
Dan
Structured, but not too structured - makes my progress happen very quickly. Always fun!
Lillian
Michael is a patient and encouraging teacher. His lessons are energetic and we always get a lot done. You can tell, too, that he is knowledgeable and passionate about the material. He can apply both technical skill and professional experience to his lessons, while also adapting to the student and allowing them to advance at their own pace. He motivates with praise but will tell you when something needs work/practice. I leave every lesson excited to continue learning and improving. I recommend lessons with Michael!

"Amazing Drum Teacher

Jesse is an incredible instructor and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I have been taking drum lessons from him for just a few months and have improved incredibly since starting out knowing nothing. Very encouraging, and great at spotting aspects to improve upon.

Also, he puts together band nights with all of his students (across many different instruments) which are incredibly fun, and a great way to get practice with others.

Highly recommended!"

"My son started with Keith on snare drum and absolutely loved the lessons so much he bugged me for a drum set constantly! Keith was very helpful in helping us to select a drum set and getting the best price. We found out that we have the #1 music merchant in the world right here in our town and they give Keiths students the best prices since he has sent them so many customers, so we saved an lot of money when it was time to buy a drum set.
