I teach drum set and marching percussion, teaching for four years. I teach both tenor and snare drum for marching.

Lessons are tailored to the individual student and their experience, goals, and materials available. Having the respective instrument at the teaching location is preferred, but the minimum materials required are drumsticks, a drum pad, and a stand for the drum pad.

Drum set students should expect to learn the basics of technique and drum set-up. From there, lessons are tailored to the individual student, specifically what genres they are interested in. For beginners, I use "The Best Beginner Drum Book" by Drumeo.

Marching percussion students learn a heavier emphasis on technique, constantly being implemented into lessons. Students learn a variety of musical pieces and see technical and musical growth through each piece.

Private Drum Teacher

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

My teaching technique is learner-centered. I work with students to help them build a strong vocabulary of drum rudiments and have them apply their newly acquired drumming knowledge to the songs and genres that interest them most. I have found this to be ideal for those at the beginning and intermediate levels. For the advanced drummers out there, I may be able to assist with some minor application of technique or perhaps deviate from standard drumming practices to acquire a fuller awareness of the body's interaction with not only the drumsticks and drum set, but how to maintain total postural awareness.

For those interested in flamenco, I have a lifetime of experience with the rhythms of flamenco, am a professional cajón player, and study/perform flamenco guitar.

Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

My approach to teaching is different, it is a combination of my experience as a performer, a teacher and a student. That means a lot of information, building a solid rudimentary vocabulary and the ability to put all of that into a solid pace and perspective.

No one can infuse you with the skills necessary to become proficient with any instrument. They can teach you basics and even advanced techniques, but to make them yours, you must implement what you have been taught and practice, practice, practice.
Loran's strength with and gift to me is that he is my coach. He is amazingly good at being my coach. Loran reassures me that what I have do so far is good, encourages me to be better, and motivates me to continue striving.
As a sixty-something who was basically starting over with respect to the piano, Loran is my guru.

"Highly recommended!

Andrew is an outstanding drum teacher. I took lessons from him for about two years when he was based in Los Angeles. He is well-versed in a variety of teaching styles and I was always amazed by his skill whenever he improvised on the drum set. His ability to break complicated sequences into more digestible pieces was immensely helpful and was invaluable when tackling more challenging beats. He is also an exceptionally patient and encouraging teacher.

He is very receptive to teaching students what they are interested in learning. One of the parts of my lessons I looked forward to was applying what I had learned that class by playing along to some of my favorite songs.

Andrew was very flexible and willing to accomodate my ever-changing schedule. Really personable and funny, too!

I was bummed to hear he was moving to the east coast. If he were still in LA, I would absolutely still be taking lessons from him!"

"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!"
