- Music Lessons $20.00 Fixed
I instruct students of all ages, generally using the award-winning Carmine Appice "Realistic Rock Method" and/or "Realistic Rock for Kids" as my primary methods. My students have ranged in age from 4 - 45 years old. A structured approach enables brand new drummers to have fun while learning to read music right away. With a little practice between lessons, most of my students (even young children) are typically capable of reading and improvising a wide variety of beats within a few short months. I teach my students to learn the right way to play before developing bad habits on their own. As a matter of fact, learned to play drums back in the 80's using the "Realistic Rock Method" and it is STILL one of the most popular used today. For children 5 and under, I have also used Andy Ziker's "Drumset for Preschoolers" method with success.
I have many years of experience playing and recording with professional rock bands as well as instructing students of all ages. I take a goal -- oriented approach to teaching, working to help students get where they want to be as drummers. I specialize in working with beginners, and help keep new students motivated to practice by keeping it FUN! I prefer to travel to my students' locations so that lessons are conducted right on the same drum set they will be practicing on, but I can also hold lessons at my home using a Remo pad set and other drums and instruments.
THE FIRST LESSON IS 100% FREE and I have several local student references you can contact. My rates are very reasonable (starting at $20 per lesson) and monthly discounts are available. I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have to find out whether or not I'd be the right instructor for you or your child.
