*** Studio Equipment ***
Complete 5-piece Drum Set

*** Specialties ***
I teach the Moeller Method. This is a system of technique which involves three basic wrist motions. The basics can be taught in one lesson, but the application takes a lifetime. I also teach all popular styles of contemporary drum set, such as rock, jazz, funk, r&b, and many different Latin styles. I work with students on reading both on snare drum and drum set and also get them playing along and transcribing with recordings of whatever style of music is of interest to them.

I am over 60 and always wanted to learn music, especially the drums. Phil is not only a great teacher, but also has shown remarkable patients for someone like myself with absolutely no music talent whatsoever.

Dan has been a lot of fun - and he is definitely pushing my skills. I'm getting better week by week and his input and guidance is really valuable. It has been a combination of classical and learning to play by ear too.

I have not observed Tim while he is teaching, however, I've known him for three years as he's been in our scholarship program. He is dedicated and motivated;I think he will be an excellent role model for children. I am delighted he's chosen teaching as his profession, as I think it's a very good fit for him.

About Bronson
I specialize in seeking and catching weaknesses in musicians and creating customized exercises to strengthen my students. My goal is not to have a star student that builds my reputation as a teacher but instead to have happy students that are satisfied with every lesson. I love questions and I love those "aha!" moments that my students encounter.
I feel most accomplished when my students show up to the lesson excited and ready to learn.
I used to be a driver for the United Parcel Service, but I quit for a career in music. This includes teaching, composing, doing studio work and perfo
rming around the Pierce and King County area. My compositions are found in a few radio commercials and state documentaries and my own, personal material found on my CDs (which will also be for sale when I am satisfied with it).
My music listening preferences include everything from Abba to Zappa, listening to every album Funk to Bach.
Message me now and let's start planning your progress!

Can Anyone Learn to Sing? Five Steps to Instantly Improve

You could be forgiven for thinking “no” is the answer to that question, especially if you’ve seen episodes of TV talent shows where singer after singer mumbles in a tuneless monotone, or wails off key with confidence, but little ability. Closer to home, you may have sung in a choir, or even attempted singing lessons, but became frustrated as you found that your voice didn’t match up to your expectations. However much you might want to sing, you might have made the decis
