I have been teaching music to students of all ages for 17 years and I absolutely love it! I am a fun loving teacher who has high expectations of my students. I have a bachelor (UM) and Master (CMU) degree in music. I am a school band director as my full-time career. I am able to teach all of the brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments, including piano, to varying degrees. You will receive a multi-faceted lesson with me including music theory, music history, new techniques, musicianship skills, performance skills, and much more. I look forward to this chance to work with you!

Greg
One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

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 ...

Marc has helped me develop my style and helped me implement my "voice" in what I am writing. He also offered several constructive suggestions that made my piece stronger as a whole.

Mr. Marc was an extremely enthusiastic instructor that made me excited about all of the material he taught me. He is very resourceful and uses a unique approach that I never had encountered from any other instructor. He is very kind and knowledgeable in many subject areas, and is an incredible musician. My playing improved tremendously under his instruction. I would HIGHLY recommend him to students of any age!

"Mike is one of the best drum instructors out there. I've been taking lessons with him from middle school, and he has helped me succeed to become the jazz drummer and drum captain at Marina High School. Mike understands several different styles: rock, jazz, Latin, metal, and more. In addition, he teaches students the proper technique, rudiments and how to read sheet music. Most importantly, Mike stands out from other instructors because he spends time trying to understand his students' interests and incorporates them into his lessons. He is very outgoing and energetic, so his lessons are always fun and educational. Overall, I highly recommend him because he challenges and inspires his students to become better drummers."

"Brian's experience and passion for drumming become apparent during the first lesson. He is a talented musician and a wonderful teacher, adjusting the pace of each lesson to match your needs and your level of skill. His ability to play numerous styles makes him an ideal teacher for those up and coming drummers who don't want to get locked into playing one particular type of music. I've been playing drums for as long as Brian has, but even with all of my experience he has still helped me branch out and incorporate new techniques into my repertoire. Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn the basics, or an experienced drummer, looking to hone your skills in a particular area, Brian is a great teacher to turn to!"

Maintenance 101: Caring For Your Drum Set Cymbals

Taking special precautions and caring for your instrument is important for all musicians - just taking a few minutes to clean your guitar, for example, can ensure a longer life of strumming and jamming. Similarly, taking good care of your drum set is an important habit to keep up.  Too many drummers forget the importance of keeping their drum set clean, and tend to pack up their equipment carelessly.  Cymbals, especially, are easily forgotten during this process.  Taking a few minutes to c …
