Private Drum Teacher

I have worked with all levels of drum. I teach both rudimental and concert style drumming.

About Katherine (Kay)

Taught 41 years as a band director
Principal Trumpet with Beloit/Janesville Symphony

I like to teach in a style that is functional and interesting. Students will be doing a variety of activities at each lesson. The focus will be determined by their needs.

As students become more proficient in music their enjoyment of musical activities will increase. The success of completing various levels of musical achievement will carry over to other lifetime skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will work with each student depending on their individual needs. We will strive to produce steady improvement in player proficiency.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should have a music stand and instrument

*** Specialties ***
I like to teach based on the individual. I have taught group and private lessons. The materials I use are varied, with an emphas

is on scales, theory, and also some duet playing. I also like to incorporate some music history into each lesson. I feel that each student needs to work from known to the new areas. I often use supplementary materials (solos or small ensembles) to reinforce my teaching.

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!

Private Drum Teacher

Want to start playing all of your favorite songs quickly and easily? Looking for a teacher who understands what YOU want and what YOUR goals are? Want someone easy to get along with, friendly, and who makes lessons FUN? Then look no further! I am an experienced music teacher with numerous students and I specialize in helping you achieve your goals as fast as possible. No matter the style, age, skill level or temperament of the student, I guarantee I can help you grow as a musician and greatly improve your skillset! Send me a message and let's talk about what YOU want from music lessons!

About Christopher

Hello! My name is Chris and I am a professional musician and music instructor! I have taught music since 2012 and graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Music from William Jessup University, where I learned composition, singing, instrumentation, theory, ear training, recording and production and many other skills.

Any student of mine will find that I don't care what "the book" says I should teach my student; I care what my student wants to learn. I will only have you learn a new skill if it is going to further your musical experience and give you the tools to accomplish the goals that you set for yourself. If you wanna learn Mozart, you got it. If you wanna learn ACDC, you got it. If you wanna learn jazz, folk or even rock-a-billy surf polka, then guess what; you got it.

My lessons are fun, relaxed and I will NEVER make

you feel bad for a mistake or a missed note. I will help you improve and get better, but not by shouting at you; we will work together to improve your musicianship, and as long as your satisfied with the lessons and the results, then I will be too!

Now, a little bit more about me!

I am the drummer, background vocalist and songwriter for California-based alternative-rock band, With One Voice. I am married to my beautiful wife, Courtney, who also plays and teaches music! I love rock but I have an appreciation for all music, from rap to country to soul to Broadway to classical; I listen to it all! I believe I can make you better at any style of music (and every style of music) so let's talk about how I can help you accomplish your goals, impress your friends, become a rockstar and learn a new, fun, and exciting skill today!

My daughters, 9 and 12, just started piano lessons with Chris. They have had lessons in the past and were so pleased with their new teacher. My 12 year-old is especially shy, and she warmed right up to him. We are really looking forward to Chris coming for weekly lessons.

Private Drum Teacher

I'm a full time touring musician, I studied music in school for 8 years, but I can honestly say I've learned more about music through my years as a touring musician. I find great joy in sharing all the things I've learned over the years.

I like getting to know my students; their expectations and goals as an aspiring drummer, and I build my curriculum around their needs.

In my lessons you can expect to learn, and have fun!

About Rob

Have you always wanted to play the drums? Do you want to jam along your favorite tracks or play live with a band?
I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. I take pride in helping every student achieve their goals on their instrument. My methods are relaxed and patient, and is an environment that promotes a love of music!
Well pick up some sticks and lets get rolling! (Pun intended)

My lessons are not the same for everyone. I like to get to know my students; music goals and learning style, and I build my curriculum around that information.

I am a full time touring, recording musician who lives in Nashville TN. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance from Roberts Wesleyan College.
During my studies at Roberts I taught percussion and

music theory at U-Prep High school.

In 2016 I moved to Nashville, after 4 months of working with anyone and everyone, I decided to find a band I that I could call my own. Leading me to this moment, where I am currently on tour with my band, The Foxies, and perform with and MD for two other artist based out of Nashville.

I have Performed at Warped Tour, Sundance, SXSW, Bonaroo, Nashvilles-Live on the Green.

Ryan
Of all my year's of formal education, I can confidently say my time as a student under Rob was perhaps the most significant. He demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience, and genuine care into my development, and took me from a guy who was VERY rough on the drums to a proficiency level.

On top of building the physical mechanics and techniques to become a drummer, Rob put even more emphasis on how I internalized, felt, and heard the music. Each lesson focus was equally weighted with theory, practical use, real-time listening, and execution - developing all my senses and slowly building my foundation so I could take the material and know how to grow upon it outside of the lesson room.

Lessons with Rob is more than learning a cool fill, or a fun groove - even though those do happen - but it is learning how to become a musician, and I'll carry the lessons learned from him with me forever.

Private Drum Teacher

You've got to walk before you can run, so I focus on the basics. But, the basics can be a lot of fun! Especially once we start to apply them to your favorite songs, and being creative with them - that's kind of what it's all about!

About Mike

Learning to play an instrument is a mixture of a lot of fun, and a lot of hard work. My strength is finding what will inspire my students to WANT to put in those difficult hours of practice, and then showing them how to apply what they have learned in a creative way, so that they experience the fun that music is supposed to be.

I help my students set - and reach - achievable goals. Learning this skill teaches them self esteem and also helps them discover their own learning style - a valuable tool, even if they do not pursue a career in music! I am gentle, but honest when a student arrives for a lesson unprepared, and am equally honest and enthusiastic when they demonstrate that they have put forth the effort to succeed.

I am not accepting many students, so that I can keep my schedule very performance heavy. This makes me a bet

ter teacher, and means that I only retain students who really want to progress.

I have been a drummer/percussionist in the Indianapolis music scene for nearly forty years. I regularly perform with the top players in many different genres and have played and recorded in a wide variety of venues and musical situations. In addition to playing my first instrument: the drum set. I also perform on various instruments, including: steel pan, vibraphone, and congas. I have extensive experience as a teacher beginning 30 years ago teaching at IRC music and Carmel Music Center.

My music education followed the classic route of mentoring under a local expert while working professionally. I studied for 16 years with Charles Mastropaolo (drummer for the Ed Sullivan show, and local jazz great) and was trained by him in improvisation, rudimental drumming, score reading/interpretation, Latin drumming, vibraphone, and performing all styles on the drum set. I have also been a member of the vibraphone workshop online teaching community for nine years. As a member, I have been able to further my education on all mallet instruments by online lessons with some of the top vibraphone players in the world.
I look forward to working with you!

Mike was really the best instructor I could have asked for. Knowledgeable, patient, and best of all, chill when he needed to be. I was just picking up the drums for a high school band I was in at the time, and he was more than willing to help me learn whatever dumb song me or my band had decided sounded cool at the time. At the same time, he showed me a lot of really excellent practice techniques, directed me to some solid literature for different rhythms to work on, and would sit with me through a whole hour of my relentless mistakes like it was nothing. More than a good instructor, he's a really cool guy! He never missed a beat!
