Private Drum Teacher

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.

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

Private Drum Teacher

I have been teaching since 2008 and have a BA in Music. I have played and studied drums as a secondary instrument for quiet sometime. I have had some accomplished drum students. I teach all the basic rudiments and have a strong focus on learning beats by ear. I like to teach my drum students to read and do rolls with a strong concentration on the snare drum.

About Andrei

Teaching music is one of my passions. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. After each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music and have enjoyed their time. Music is a lifelong skill that can always be practiced and

"Luke was the absolute coolest teacher ever. Not only is he a rad drummer himself, he has such a calm and cool demeanor. He just wants to share the awesome experience of playing the drumset. Luke showed me the right way to get started with the drums and now 2 years later I still think back to the advice Luke gave me as a beginner. He is an well-rounded musician and everyone stands to benefit from working with him."

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 …
