I have taught drums for ten years, and strive to provide each student with exactly what they need to excel. I have extensive training, both from CSUN as a Jazz Performance major and performing around the world in various groups. From basic technique, to advanced technical and musical studies, my wealth of knowledge and experience will help you improve immensely. I teach based on each individual student in order to provide you with the best and most fun learning experience.

About Athan

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself. As someone who started late (began drumming at age 16), and quickly progressed from complete (i.e. terrible) beginner to studying at nationally ranked CSU Northridge's jazz program,

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band or full drum set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. My goal is to help students grow with their comfort and confidence. If you are comfortable and confident, then you will have fun. It all works together.

David is an excellent teacher! My son enjoys his personality and is learning so much. He is really growing as a musician after only 3 lessons. David is very flexible and easy to work with. He is easily contacted and promptly responds to any questions we have. Because of his extensive musical experience, David has the skills to teach every genre. We are enjoying his teaching plan on continuing lessons with David for a long time.

Great experience so far. David has been teaching my daughter who is a beginner in Drums, so far so good. He makes sure to send us an email after classes to follow up and assign Homework. Will definitely recommend.

My son and I take lessons from "Mr. Matt." He is always enthusiastic and supportive even if we're not the most musically talented. We love his mix of basic essentials, music style and theory, and plain rocking out to songs we pick that he shows us how to play.
Jessica
We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!

Matthew has been great for my son, Michael! He has learned a lot in a short period of time!

I’ve always thought music was an important part of life, a necessity, even from a very young age. Great music brings people together, breaks barriers, pushes the envelope, and inspires great ideas. Learning to play an instrument requires patients, ambition, discipline, determination, and a want to learn as much as you can to evolve as a musician and a person. These quality’s transfer into every aspect of life, whether you become a professional musician or you take a different path. I started teaching drums because I want to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained over my years of playing to students who are eager to learn. Most of all I want my students to have fun!

I found Jeremy through his Web site about 7 years ago, and at the old age of 55, decided to pursue a lifelong dream of learning to play the drums. Jeremy patiently worked with me over the initial 5 years of our lesson time together in my home, and I achieved the level of proficiency that allows me to enjoy sitting down to play along with songs that I like, as well as more experimentally with my son and neighbor, both guitarists, during our random "jam" sessions. I took a break during the first part of the Covid pandemic but am now back to my weekly in-home lessons with Jeremy, and we have a new plan to help me continue to improve my playing. Jeremy is patient, attentive to my needs, is able to figure out how to best help me, and overall, he is an incredibly talented and gifted musician. My lessons with him have allowed me to achieve a lifelong goal that has become a core aspect of who I am, and what I love doing with music.

My teaching style is very flexible & hands on. My goal is to make beautiful music and I do this by taking technical exercises and giving them musical meaning. This means I focus on the ideas of time, vocabulary & dynamic playings, but within this still teaching essential technical exercises in order to create a well-rounded musician.

After each lesson I will email detailed notes, as well as any supplemental documents and/or music.

About Ross

Using my experience I am able to cater my lessons to students of all abilities, be it brand new or a seasoned player. I shape my curriculum to fit the needs of each and every student I meet & my end goal is always with the goal of maximizing their creativity potential to its fullest.

"I was a bit nervous about taking lessons as I had not played drums in front of anyone before. My first lesson was surprisingly a very comfortable expereience and something that I would definitely recommend if you are on the fence. I have been playing for about a year and felt like I wasn't progressing with YouTube tutorials anymore. Max has really been helping to take me to a new skill level!"

"Matt is AWESOME. He has been a great musical role model for me since day one. The knowledge that Matt has passed down to me has completely reallocated my purpose as a musician and challenged me to question my role as a drummer in an ensemble situation. What insight! I have absolutely no doubt that I will be prepared to confidently attend college university music ensembles in the next couple of months, because of Matt's mentorship and how it has inspired me (and of course, taught me how) to achieve my best. Matt has exposed me to styles of music I didn't even know existed. His talent is beyond the capacity of any other teacher I've had, and my family and I respect him very much. Very personable, easy-going, and intelligent. Thank you Matt, for everything. :)"

Should Drummers Learn Music Theory?

If you're a drummer, does that mean you're off the hook if you don't want to learn music theory? Maybe you just want to rock out and learn some killer fills and wow the crowd with your solos. No need for modes, minor scales or the Circle of Fifths... right? Think again. Learning music theory can be incredibly helpful to any musician, and excluding yourself from those Music Theory 101 classes is only holding you back. Sure, you may not need to memorize the pentatonic scales in order to master …

Everything You Need to Know About Open Handed Drumming

It’s known by a few names: “Open handed drumming,” playing with a “left hand lead,” playing “uncrossed,” or simply “open.” Whatever you decide to call it, open handed drumming is a way of setting up and playing your drum set so that one hand doesn’t cross over the other while playing the time-keeping cymbals (like the hi-hats, or ride). It can equate to playing time with your non-dominant hand, and it also can mean playing the hi-hats or ride cymbals in unusual lo …
