Private Drum Teacher

I believe teaching needs to be tailor-fit to the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to private instruction. Our lessons will begin by me getting to know who you are as a student and as a musician. We will determine what you want out of music and your instrument, then we will set goals to get there. All of this will be a collaboration between me and you. I believe that music must be a self-driven endeavor. It is a vehicle for self-discovery.

That being said, I do believe in having a solid technical foundation, and I will push you to develop a daily practice routine. I try to begin every lesson with a rudimental warmup, regardless of age or experience. I also try to include free-play time, playing together, or playing along to music with every session to have fun and develop creativity. I believe fun, creativity, and human-connection is what music is all about, and technique is the work you put in to make those things happen. We will always end on a positive note ...

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

I've been teaching Drums since 2004 and recently started back January 2013. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play all rudiments and as time goes on you'll be able to play in bands and in JH and HS bands. I typically use the Haskell Harr, and now include Alfred's Drum Method book for Snare; Tommy Igo for drum-set. His posters from Vic Firth are great resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Sam has been teaching our son Sam for a year now. He is an enthusiastic, focused and motivating instructor. What our son loves about Sam is that he is teaching him to play drums through the music that our son loves and relates to. This makes it that much more "fun" to learn.

Sam is always on time, very communicative, professional, passionate about drums and great with kids! We highly recommend Sam as an instructor.

Sam is wonderful drum instructor. He is very friendly and my teen son feels very comfortable around him. They worked for several months on drums and Sam even took time to listen to my son's DJ music production. Sam gave him his opinion and suggestions for improvements. We are very happy with how fast my son began to play drums only after the start of a few lessons. We highly recommend him!!!

"HIRE GERALD NOW! I've had online lessons with several teachers before Gerald. He is absolutely the best! Even over the internet he can immediately zero in on what you're doing right, wrong, then show you the quickest and easiest way to get better. The sound quality of his studio is better than any other drum teacher. Instead of using the horrible mic that's built into a laptop or iPad that distorts and sounds terrible, Gerald using a dozen professional mics to give you superior sound during every lesson. He simply gives the best experience."

Top 4 Easy Drum Songs for Beginners

It's well-known that learning a musical instrument can enhance creativity, coordination, and overall happiness. The drums are a popular choice for their rhythmic sound and the tempo they give to group music. But while it might be nice to be able to play like Keith Moon from "The Who" right away, you're going to need to practice first in order to learn how to play the drums that well! If you're just beginning, one of the best ways to establish a foundation is to learn songs that are good for …
