Have you always wanted to learn drums but have no idea where to start? Do you have a child that needs to get ready for middle school band? Do you play drums but want to learn how to read music? Do you want to be a better drummer?  

I teach individual private study lessons year-round for beginner and intermediate students. Are you ready to kick start the next phase in your musical journey? Let's do this!

Private lessons at my home studio in Redmond, Oregon

I want to take you to levels of drumming that you may have never thought possible.  This starts with the very basics and building from there with proven methods that work. 

I teach rock, metal, jazz and Latin styles as well as concert band and marching band material.  Training on building solid rhythm, reading and writing drum music, and metronome skills will round out these comprehensive lessons that will last a lifetime.   You do not need any prior experience on drums or any other instrument in general. 

If you don't have drum sticks yet, I will show you different sizes in my studio to help make the right choice for you.

Individual online lessons 

Let's Skype! These lessons are at the comfort of your own home as long as you have a computer, laptop, iPad or other device with internet connection, speakers and a microphone.  You don't even need a drum set.  A pair of drum sticks and practice pad is all you need to get started learning drums.
