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

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

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..

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

I grew up playing and listening to jazz and rock music. That is my main focus in the beginning. We will start simple rudiments and beats for snare and drumset and grow from there. Technique, control and passion.

"Goes above and beyond

I have personally known Tom for 20 years and been to numerous Black Widow Shows. Around the age of 3 my son would beat on Popcorn and Cookie Tins with utensil so my parents bought him a small $50 drum kit from Toys R Us. When Tristan was 5 he requested his own CD player so he could play my Black Widow USA CD's. By the age of 6 he continually asked for drums. Tom helped me with the process of finding a used kit, went along to look at it and determine if it was suitable, came to my house and set it up, did Tristan first few lessons at my home so he could get used to the layout and feel of the kit. After determining Tristan would learn better in a setting with 2 drum kits Tom went and purchased another set for teaching. After one session Tristan picked up on something he had tried to learn for about a month. He works great with a beginner and will mold the lessons to their ability and learning capacity. Tristan wants to be just like Uncle Tom and even spent his own birthday money on Vic Firth Drum Stick, a stick bag, and Chimes for his kit."

"Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students"

"Matt is AWESOME. He has been a great musical role model for me since day one. The knowledge that Matt has passed down to me has completely reallocated my purpose as a musician and challenged me to question my role as a drummer in an ensemble situation. What insight! I have absolutely no doubt that I will be prepared to confidently attend college university music ensembles in the next couple of months, because of Matt's mentorship and how it has inspired me (and of course, taught me how) to achieve my best. Matt has exposed me to styles of music I didn't even know existed. His talent is beyond the capacity of any other teacher I've had, and my family and I respect him very much. Very personable, easy-going, and intelligent. Thank you Matt, for everything. :)"

"I played drums in a school band and haven't played in a few years. I approached John about getting back into the art even though I was a little rusty. Previously I have taken lessons with people who were skilled gigging drummers but not the best educators. John is a great combination of professional musician and a skilled educator, as shown through his patience and ability to explain techniques and skills. I highly recommend John as a teacher for any level, because he has been so wonderful in getting me back on my musical feet!"
