AN INSPIRING Drum TEACHER
Teaching drum lessons gives me the opportunity to cultivate a student's creative spark with inspiring instruction. My 10+ years of experience as a drum teacher, role as chair of Levine Music's percussion department, and masters in jazz studies give me the depth of understanding necessary to guide students with clarity and conviction. In addition to my teaching, I am constantly striving to enrich online drum education with my blog "The Melodic Drummer".
HOME Drum STUDIO
My teaching philosophy for drum lessons is to meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be. For some students this means being challenged to push their drumming to the next level, for others it means learning the basics so they can have fun playing the instrument. My drum studio is a friendly, dedicated environment for anyone, and reflects my experience teaching students of all ages.
FREE "Get to Know you" LESSON
Before signing up, all new students will take a free lesson to determine whether my studio is a good fit.
My home drum studio is conveniently located near downtown Silver Spring, about one mile from the metro.
Drum lessons are available in two lengths:
30 minutes- $30
1 hour- $60

OTHER Drum STUDIOS
In addition to my home drum studio, I am chair of the percussion department at Levine Music, where I teach at the NW DC and SE DC locations. I am also a member of the jazz faculty at Northern Virginia Community College. I am currently accepting students at both of these institutions and encourage you to apply if you are interested in taking drum lessons from me.
ONLINE drum LESSONS
For drum students not from the Washington DC area, I am now available for Skype lessons. My Skype name is themelodicdrummer.
