Private Drum Teacher

I have been a drummer for 14 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty. I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

When you take lessons with me you can expect to build a strong foundation in counting rhythms, learn practical beat patterns, improve improvisation, learn to play along with a guitarist and/or bass player (me), and learn a wide array of songs and drum fills to prepare you for any situations you might have as a drummer.

I also will give you my personal number to give you advice on buying gear, additional things to practice, and any questions ...

Corey is a fantastic drummer! Take advantage of time at home while learning new skills, and this is a great way to stay active and keep your energy up. Corey has been drumming for a very long time and has an excellent positive attitude, you can't miss!
Alex
A great experience! I have been learning with Corey for about two months, and am already improving. I am a guitar player with some basic drumming experience. I was looking to finally get to the next level so I could record my own drum beats (also drumming always looked like a lot of fun!), and Corey is helping me to achieve this. He is a talented drummer himself, and was able to quickly assess my playing level so we could start building on it. He has a great eye and ear for issues with my technique and always has an exercise to address them. In a short time I have experienced significant improvement, playing some more creative drum patterns, and am looking forward to continuing.
A lot of fun, very fulfilling, great instructor! Highly recommended!

"After many years of not playing drums, Evan has done a lot to help me remember how fun it is to have fun on the drums!

His teaching style is creative and interesting in terms of what material he brings and how he incorporates it into what you're working on, he communicates in a way that I find easy to understand, and scheduling and communication outside of the lesson has been a breeze. Our online lessons have been surprisingly easy (as someone new to this way of learning)--Evan's set up is easy to see and hear and feel like you're talking to a human being, and having the lesson recorded and sent over has been hugely helpful for reviewing the material.

Evan also happens to be in my opinion the most creative, interesting, and musical drummer in the city of Seattle, at least that I know of. Highly recommend!"

"We would like to thank John for becoming our all time favorite drum teacher. In just 7 lesson John managed to not only give our daughter the support and teach the techniques she needed for her upcoming concert, but also boost her self-confidence tremendously. Our daughter is a quite girl and as the only percussionist in the school band, she needed and needs to learn from someone with John's experience at teaching children.
Thank you, John. We can't wait to take more lessons soon!!!"

"WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!"
