Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different backgrounds is a constant source of inspiration and engaging music. As an educator, I emphasize the role of music as a form of expression and its parallel to verbal language.

I tailor my lessons based on two factors:
1. The skill level of the student.
2. The main goal the student aims to achieve.
Each student is unique and deserves a lesson that both accommodates and challenges their skill-set. Let's start talking today and see what kind of lesson works for you!
I picked up my first pair of drumsticks when I was 10 years old. After a little bit of practice and hard work I've gone on to teach kids and adults the best instrument in the world! Some of my heroes include Steve Gadd, Carter Beauford, Buddy Rich, Gregg Bissonette, Dennis Chambers, and any drummer who can play left-handed. I have been in bands ranging in styles from rock to funk and currently enjoy playing in instrumental funk and pop-rock bands based here in DC. Whether it's an intimate club like IOTA in Arlington or a large venue like The Fillmore in Silver Spring, I love putting on a good show.

I've been teaching drums for the past 10 years, nine of those as the Director Of Drum Set Studies at Dale Music, Co. I will teach you how to read musical notation and I specialize in how to play using proper technique with solid timing. Two of the many areas that we'll cover are, The Rudiments as well as a variety of musical styles. A few of the instructional materials that we will work from are: "Elementary Drum Method" and "Realistic Rock" for the beginning student, "Stick Control" and "Syncopation" for the intermediate on into, "New Breed" and Alan Dawson's "...Complete Vocabulary" for the advanced student.
While my teaching style is relaxed, you will have to put in the work to achieve a level of proficiency. Keep in mind, "you can't get a full result with half an effort" and "the best shortcut is hard work." So, let's get to work!
Hi, I’m Jeff and I have been playing the drums for over 40 years and an instructor for the past 10 years. I began my teaching career at The School of Rock where I spent one (1) year helping the drum students learn to play along to songs from various rock groups such as The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rush, Kiss and Led Zeppelin. We also covered funk artist Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic and James Brown, to name a few. From there, I started teaching at Dale Music, Co., where I served as the Director of Drum Set Studies for the past nine (9) years with a concentration on performing jazz. My personal drumming style has been influenced by Steve Gadd, William Kennedy, Jimmy Cobb, Art Blakey, Steve Smith and Ndugu Chancler to name a few. Utilizing my ...
