Hi! My name is Luke. I've been playing drums for 15 years and have been teaching private drum lessons for over 8 years. I love playing many styles ranging from jazz, rock, pop, hip-hop, funk, worship, Afro-Cuban, and classical. I graduated from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles with both an undergraduate and masters degree. I taught drumset classes at USC for two years and currently teach students from grades 5-12 at a public school here in Nashville. I have a full 8 microphone recording/broadcasting setup for online lessons along with two drum sets for interactive lessons and in-person jamming. We will work on groove, soloing, rudiments, independence, and reading, but above all we will HAVE FUN! Hope to hear from you soon!

About Luke

I've played drums for most of my life and the one thing I always tell my students is to have fun! If the drummer isn't enjoying it, the rest of the band will follow! Through music I've gotten to experience some amazing things such as working on the same bill as T-Pain for a short tour, playing in NY

Luke is the best drum instructor ever. He's helped me go from learning how to hold drum sticks to performing music around town! He knows how to set challenging, yet achievable goals and always makes lessons fun. Would recommend Luke for all ages and all skill levels. He is an absolutely killer drummer too!
Elizabeth
Luke did a great job teaching my daughter to play drums.
Leon
Luke has been incredible with my son. He is patient, talented, and helped my son improve his drum skills. It no longer gives me a headache when my son is practicing at home!

To me, learning any instrument is about balancing the exercises with the fun material that makes you want to keep playing. I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests and age, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs. I also tend to supplement whichever books I'm using with material of my own, to make sure we're also covering important topics such as music theory and maybe a bit of relevant music history in the process.

About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your teacher! I've been playing guitar since I was eight, starting out playing rock and roll, then focusing on classical training for my college career.

Joshua has helped me become a better guitar player by showing me how I can work towards my goals, and giving me exercises, information and musical practice that makes my goals attainable. Joshua is a student-directed teacher, and he has worked with me to focus on my areas of interest (songwriting and fingerstyle/chord work). He is willing to answer questions, responsive to ideas, and able to explain difficult concepts. I've learned things that will help me improve my guitar playing for years. Thank you, Joshua.
Ashlyn
I was self taught when I started taking lessons, Josh helped me fix some bad habits that helped me push my playing to the next level!
Marco
I grew up on bossa, and wanted to learn how to play it. I had played guitar for years but mostly rock and folk. Josh was able to take what I knew and teach me how to play bossa music.

I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

About Sasha

I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole).

I believe in teaching what you love. And that doesn't mean just playing and recreating all of your favorite songs. It means deconstructing and understanding the ins and outs of music that you and others love, giving you the theory, techniques, and process to make great music of your own.

He is very encouraging and honest in his feedback. I appreciate his transparency when critiquing my work. I need to hear the truth in order to get better. When I draw something that he is astounded by, I will know that I have truly earned his respect. My lessons fly by because we're having such a good time. I'm enjoying the journey."
