Learn drums with a patient and experienced teacher. I teach the skills that form the foundation
of any style of music you choose to pursue--rock, country, or blues.
There is no charge for an initial consultation to answer your questions
and see if we are a good fit for each other.
Cost: $17 for private lessons at my home studio in Old Southwest Roanoke.
I trained in music through private lessons, Henrico County Schools, Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra
and UNC Chapel Hill, and have passed the Praxis test required of public school music teachers in Virginia.
I have played drums on three CDs of original rock, folk and country songs.
I teach on a Yamaha DTX 500 electronic drum set. Required method book is Drumopedia by Dan Britt.
After several months of private lessons, there may be an opportunity to join one of my
"instructional bands" with my guitar and bass students, playing rock and/or country songs
in a real band, while gaining experience and building skills at a much lower cost than
private lessons. My instructional bands all perform at my student recitals on a quarterly basis.
