Teaching Fundamentals And Approach

I have been teaching drums, beginner through advanced levels, in the Orlando area since 1997. This experience provides insight into the teaching approach when working with different learning styles.

The important fundamentals of sight reading, drum beats, fills, rudiments, and all-important listening skills are covered in a fun and upbeat manner. The only realistic way a drummer can become prepared for real world of music is hands-on experience playing along with recorded commercial music, and also with music minus the drum track. This is a very important part of the instruction.

Listening to and learning drum parts of great drummers goes a long way in the progress of any student. The value of a positive attitude and a belief in their own ability is also emphasized. Practice assignments for each lesson are designed to be motivational and enjoyable.

Drum lessons should be an activity that is eagerly anticipated or enthusiasm is quickly lost. Each student is encouraged to suggest some of their favorite music as part of the overall mix. This keeps the sessions interesting and personal for each student.

Books used are the Drum Set Musician and Groove Essentials. These are superb books designed for beginning to advanced level drummers. These include drum music charts and a play along CDs minus drums. I also write music notation for individual students when necessary.

Learning to play drums can be very rewarding and fun when lessons are relaxed at all times. My goal for all students is that their drumming adventure be remembered as a happy experience.
