PRIVATE STUDIO LESSONS
Everyone learns differently, get one-on-one lessons that are tailored to you with a professional percussionist who truly cares. From beginner to advanced you’ll progress through several books and learning material in well-organized weekly, or bi-weekly sessions. With two drum sets set up in the studio, you’ll be free to explore several styles and easily hear and watch demonstrated examples throughout the rehearsal.
Marching and concert percussion lessons are also available on snare drum, tenor drums, bass drum, and mallets. Are you auditioning for a spot in a drumline or pit? Come hang out for a few preparation lessons to work on technique, memorization, or just to polish your audition! If you have a concert percussion solo coming up feel free to fine tune it at a couple lessons to make sure you’re fully prepared! Auditions and solos aren’t just about performing the notes, it’s also about dealing with nerves. Come to the studio and we can help minimize the butterflies too!
Set yourself up for success with the best tools available for private lessons!

FREE DRUMSET EXERCISES
These warmups and exercises are composed for all skill levels, ranging from beginner to advanced. They include audio examples as well that you can play along with or just hear examples. Each warmup builds on top of the previous one and either focuses on something additional or combines ideas in a different way. Beginner skill level warmups and exercises spend time on simple ideas and establishing a bit of coordination while advanced exercises will use the basic framework to incorporate layers and different mechanics within. Using a warmup routine before diving into fun jams or performance music will help build up technique, fundamentals, and chops! It’s a great idea to start a practice session with a set duration of drum set warmups and exercises!
Download and use these drum set exercises in your warmup routine!
