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.

About David

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, D

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.

Online Drum Teacher

I'm Lucas, a professional drummer and educator in Chicago. I'm passionate about playing music and am so grateful that I get to make a living doing what I love. I played drum set with Blue Man Group, I regularly perform at the top jazz clubs in Chicago, and I've toured the country with indie bands. I'm also a high school percussion ensemble director and college drum set teacher, so I have a broad range of experiences to pull from as I craft a customized plan to help you meet your drumming goals.

I started playing the drums in my hometown of Tucson, AZ at 9 years old, following in my mom’s footsteps, who played drums at my church. It wasn’t long before I started playing in punk bands, jazz groups, and youth orchestras. I moved to the Midwest to study music at Northern Illinois University, and eventually went on to earn a master's degree at DePaul University. The Chicago music scene has provided me countless opportunities to play with inspiring musicians over the years, and I'm always

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!

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.

I took conga lessons with Michael, and he was a wonderful teacher. He explained drumming techniques very well, demonstrated patience while I got the feel of it, and taught me a wide range of rhythms in a short time. Michael is extremely well-versed in a number of drumming styles, and brought a variety of percussion instruments for me to try. His passion for the music, as well as the associated cultures, is evident in his interesting anecdotes about the exotic places in which he learned his craft. I enjoyed listening to Michael play as much as learning to play myself, and I would highly recommend Michael to students at any level!!!
Nate H.
Mike is the best percussionists, drummers, and teachers I know and is extremely active performing and touring in the music industry today! He is a seasoned, world touring professional that really knows his stuff! Whether you are new to drumming, a pro drummer who needs to tighten up your chops, or strictly a drummer who wants to learn how to approach and play percussion properly, Mike is the guy who can help YOU reach your musical goals and aspirations.

I've had the pleasure getting to know Mike while touring, drumming, marching in Drum Corps drumlines throughout the years. I have learned so much from his extensive musical knowledge and he continues to inspire me to be a better drummer and percussionist today. Mike Washinton is a great teacher, with a giant personality and most importantly a great friend! Book a lesson with him today and you will grow into the great drummer you aspire to be!
Robert
5 years ago I met Mike at Wiregrass Ranch High School, he was my drum instructor. I honestly could not think of anyone better than him to teach me. He constantly made sure I set goals and always did everything he could to give me the resources I needed to better myself as not just a drummer, but a musician as well. If it weren't for him I don't even know where I would be. He always brings the energy, he never falls off topic, and is always so cool and relaxed, regardless of how stressful the situation is. Taking lessons with him every time leaves me wanting to know more and more about the knowledge he shares. You will not regret a second spent with him, his experience shows and his ability to teach is truly special. Mike you're awesome!!

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself.

Drum Kit Basics: Introduction to Types of Drums

Thinking about learning how to play the drums? As with any new musician, getting to know your instrument is essential to your progress and success. For drummers in particular, it’s not just one instrument - it’s a whole set! The typical five-piece drum kit is the most traditional, although there are many variations to it that more advanced players can create. The types of drums you should be familiar with, however, are: The snare The bass drum or kick drum The rack toms …
