First one hour session is free at my home studio. Take me for a test drive. In that time determine if I have the skill sets, personality, methods of teaching, professional musical background and education that you believe will enable you or your child to develop the skills to play the drums. Each lesson thereafter is $30 per hour. Looking for a drum instructor to come to your home? That option is addressed near the bottom of this add.
Here are reasons you should call me on show contact info
to schedule the test drive. I have truly enjoyed training children(10 yrs.+) and adults, beginners with little or no musical background. Experienced students can direct me to focus training on their specific desires, such as learning to play various rhythms to different time signatures, or help them enhance their drum-fills ability, or ability to orchestrate solo's.
Find a teacher that can demonstrate their talent and knowledge, and more importantly explain techniques and the fundamentals of music so the student can understand and apply them. I have over 25 years experience ( 20 professional ) and have provided personal one on one training designed for each individual's skill level for over twelve years. Learn to play the right and "easy way". It is what you don't you don't pay attention to when you watch a drummer that counts.
All instruments require the development of various forms of skill sets. Obviously the ability to play drums requires independent hand and leg coordination. You need a teacher that can explain and show you how to develop these skills. As a drummer, nothing is more important than being able to keep time and lay down a tight groove. Additionally, training the correct muscles while learning basic drum rudiments is what develops the students stick speed. I will teach either the traditional or matched set hand methods based on the students preferences.
A students class time and practice time should be rewarding, by making sure occasional frustration is more than compensated for by the progress they realize they are making. My passion in music starts with jazz and I am a member of a quartet and a trio that performs locally. That would mean that I should be adept at using bushes as well as sticks. However, what and how I teach can be applied to all genres of music. So the style of music we concentrate on could be Country, Rock, Pop, Latin, Funk, Blues, Smooth and Traditional Jazz, etc. The student's preference of training is always a priority. If you are a beginner looking for a long term training program or an experienced drummer looking for assistance related to specific rhythms, find out if I am your guy. During the test drive you won't even be asked if you have interest in taking additional lessons. In fact I recommend that you think about what I have to offer overnight, and what approaches I recommended might be best suited to accomplish your goals. If you don't call me back, I understand that you are considering other options. I will not call you or try to initiate any additional contact with you unless you make another effort to contact me. Would you buy a car before taking a free test drive? Not much to lose, right? Classes are located at my home studio in the north end of Keller TX 76262 is my recommended option. Two drums sets make for more efficient use of class time as I at times demonstrate on one set while a student can play along on the other. As part of the process, a sound system provides the opportunity for me to coach you while a student plays along to tunes. I will consider lessons at your home dependent on location. That option provides convenience to the client, but naturally it will be more costly as I would have to be reimbursed somewhat for my time and travel expenses. This option is worth considering if your own time and transportation costs are more valuable to you versus any reasonable additional cost I might require.
