Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!

I started taking drum lessons at age 22 so I felt too old to begin learning how to play a new instrument. I'm so glad that Dennis was my teacher. He gave me confidence and encouragement to become the great drum player I am today. His methods of teaching are well rounded, his lesson plans are efficient and since day one he guaranteed I would be ready to play songs with a band in only 6 months. Indeed I started playing with several bands after 6 months of having lessons with Dennis. I highly recommend him as a drum teacher and mentor!
KV
V patient w/beginners and provided excellent tips and encouragement. Would recommend to anyone starting out on drums or adding another instrument to their repertoire. Provided great insight that also helped in cross-training, if already playing another instrument.
Marshal
I've studied with several teachers over the years, but Dennis was the best. I was a novice and Dennis took me to the next level. I'm forever grateful.

Most times it is the beat that first draws you into a song. When you find your foot a-tapping to the rhythm of a song you know you're hooked into it! We'll begin by learning the parts of a drum kit, basic techniques, warmups/ exercises, rhythms, then we go into applying that knowledge to learning your favorite songs!

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of re

Learning to sing with Steve has been a wonderful experience. He is friendly and welcoming and I left every lesson feeling accomplished. I came to Steve having no experience with vocal training at all and I'm so glad I did! Great teacher. He is patient and happy to teach. Thank you!

On time, very professional, amazing skill-set and very patient with my child. We feel fortunate to have Mark as an instructor.

Mark rocks!

Mark’s incredible skill as a drummer is only matched by his abilities as a teacher. In just a short time with Mark’s instruction, I have made vast improvements in my drumming. At my first lesson with Mark, he determined my skill level and what I sought to achieve with my lessons. Almost immediately, the fundamentals Mark showed me were translating into my drumming with my band. Mark has opened doors in my playing that I didn’t know existed. Mark is incredibly patient and really cares about ensuring I receive significant benefit from my lessons. Mark really goes out of his way to make sure I fully grasp everything he shows me. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to learn from a true master at his craft and from a teacher who takes pride in his students and his teaching. Thank you Mark!!

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

Online Drum Teacher

I have been playing the drums even before I could create coherent sentences. I come from a long line of percussionists and have been playing for over 18 years. As a professional drummer, I have played small lounge gigs and have played at big festivals as well. I have a very extensive understanding of all the styles of music ie Rock, reggae, jazz, R&B, gospel, Latin, etc. You name it; I've played it! I am an experienced teacher and i have even helped some of my students to land paying gigs as well. I am committed to the musical growth of all of my students and believe in their ability to be great drummers. Don't wait to start your drumming journey!

Online Drum Teacher

I have been working with students of all ages and levels for over 26 years and have learned something meaningful from each and every one them. Nothing makes me happier when I see them getting into great schools and acquiring lucrative jobs that make them happy, My students walk away with tools to not just play a musical instrument but a skill set strong enough to tackle any task.
I am equally versed in performing on and teaching drum-set (Pop, Rock, Jazz, Latin etc...), all the percussion instruments of the orchestra (ask about my state of the art recording studio where all of these instruments live), and hand drums including congas, bongos, Djembe etc... Anything you can strike scrape or shake is available for study either online or at my studios.

Heidi
I was honored to take a hand percussion lesson from David after hearing him perform with a major arena tour and a phenomenal jazz trio!. Although the setting for the lesson happened to be intimidating, David was able to help me focus on my strengths as a player and showed me how to build on them. He excels at building confidence and inspired me to integrate world percussion into my work as an elementary school teacher. I highly recommend him as an educator who knows how to motivate and bring out the best in students. I look forward to taking lessons online in the future!
Shiqi
David taught me since 2011. He is the most handsome, serious, responsible teacher I ever had. He helped me become a well-round musician rather than just a percussion player. To be honest, he is the most suitable teacher for me.
Jack
As an instructor, David exudes the perfect balance of amiability and intimidation. He will inspire you to work your absolute hardest without scaring you away. Personality-wise, he is that happy medium somewhere between Mr. Rogers and J.K. Simmons in Whiplash. I studied with David during my college years and 7+ years later I still utilize his concepts in everyday practice. There are many specific stories, ideas and exercises of his that have always stuck with me and come up quite often when I am working on something new or teaching a lesson or class of my own. Whether we were learning orchestral excerpts, 4-way independence, Bach fugues or just playing quarter notes with the metronome, I always left our lessons feeling highly motivated and anxious to practice. It's also great to have a teacher that can blow your mind with his own playing. It might be difficult for some teachers to get students into something like the tambourine or triangle but when he picked one up and casually played some insane rhythms and advanced techniques I was immediately inspired to learn to do the same. Not to mention his drum work on Matt Herskowitz's "Forget Me Not" - some of the things he does on that record still keep me up at night. I'm very grateful for my time as a student of David's and glad I can still learn from him as a friend and colleague!

"We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor."
