  • You also need: a practice pad, drum sticks, and plastic brushes (for quiet practicing).
  • Most students start with an hour lesson a week. The more often you play, the faster you will progress.

What To Expect

First, you'll first learn some drumming basics: how to set up your drums, stick grip, posture, bass drum pedal technique, counting, and keeping time.

You'll work on speed and control, as well as dynamics, simple rudiments, limb independence, developing your ear and musicality, how to read drum notation, and how to transcribe beats and fills. 

After every lesson I'll email you a detailed practice routine that includes your suggested homework for the week. I'll also give you lesson handouts, interactive drum transcriptions, and play-along tracks.

You learn and progress according to your particular interest area and commitment. Most students start with an hour lesson a week. If you're worried about the time commitment, remember that practicing for even just a short time every day (10-20 minutes) can be super effective.

I can give you advice on purchasing drums. I've helped many students find great deals on new and used drumsets. I'll also teach you how to set up and tune your drums, and how to make them quieter.

My rate is $75 per hour.
