Organization logo

I am a classically trained drummer and percussionist who's been performing for 18 years and teaching for over 10. Did you know that many of the best drummers in the world did a wealth of learning before they even sat down before a drumset? Hand technique and rhythm theory fundamentals are crucial to being able to play ANY song later! I can guide you down the path of learning to play music on the drums correctly, efficiently, and most of all musically. Don't go to someone else and be the punchline to a drummer joke! *** Lesson Details *** When a student takes lessons with me, we will have quite a bit of fun. I use plastic building blocks as visual aids to demonstrate musical concepts, which is fun for students of any age. I start out students with simply sticks, a metronome and a practice pad for the first month or so. The speed that we progress at will be entirely up to the dedication of the student. Music is not like a test you can cram for; you have to put in daily practice, even if its only for 10 minutes. Once we have completed the requisite rhythmic foundation, we will move on to coordination on the drumset. If the proper amount of practice is exercised, any student can be playing a complete song in roughly 8 weeks! From there, we will continue our progression into other songs, styles of music, techniques, and much much more! Remember, the study of music is a way of life, not a race that can be finished. So, get ready for a Rhythm Life! *** Travel Equipment *** I provide a practice pad, which I often demonstrate techniques on for the benefit of the students. But, if I am traveling to their location, I expect that they will have an instrument which they will be practicing on available for the lesson. *** Specialties *** I teach any style of music for drums and percussion, including rock of all kinds, jazz, funk, latin and world, country, really everything. I teach all students to read music, and counting rhythms is a requirement for my students.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
