About this pro

Hello, How are you? My name is Aaron!

I am a musician, producer, and future music therapists!

I play drum, guitar, piano and sing!

It has been 6 years ever since I started providing drum lessons. My passion gears towards helping out beginners who has some experience in drum or no experience at all.

I have experiences of learning piano from my mom who has been teaching piano over 30 years now. I had to learn piano forcefully when I was young. I honestly learned because I was forced to but never actually enjoyed music as I was learning. I value fun and productive style of lesson the most since I believe students are most engaging when they taste the richness of music. My goal is to make musicians not a drum player.

I am professional at not only teaching how to just play drum but guide my students how to appreciate music through drum. 

I have 6 years of teaching drum and have been playing drum over 10+ years. I have taught 30+ kids at my church and about 20 kids privately so far. I had to stop teaching drum in the beginning of 2018 for personaly emergency, but here I am passionately getting back to what I love to do!

Qualification

6 + years of teaching drum professionally.

10 + years of playing drum.

Working on Music Production Certificate.

Studying Music Therapy Program.

playing drum as praise team member over 8 years.

Have been producing my own music, beats and etc.

I believe no matter how well you can play drum, teaching a student is a totally different matter.

Help yourself or your precious children to become a musician not just a drummer!

Best regards,

For more information or inquiries, 

send me a text at 714-616-2132. Aaron.

The most enjoyable moment in my lesson career is when I see my student being able to enjoy the music as it is and fall in love with music!

    My first experience with Aaron was amazing. He teaches step by step and with patient heart. He know how to engage with his students and communicate. I thought online teaching was bad until I met Aaron. If you or your kids are wondering where to go for learning, Aaron is the one who you will need to go. Don’t waste your money on other teachers. I highly recommend Aaron.

  • Sharon

    Aaron was so patient with me although I didn’t know anything about about drum. He knows exactly what he’s doing and he will go through step by step depending on your level. He’s so great and I highly recommend him to everyone!

  • Samuel Lee

    I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Aaron. He is a very patient and caring instructor with a passion for drumming. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking to start drumming or improve their current skill set with an experienced mentor that can take you to the next level.

    Great communication with me about progress with my son's drum lesson. My son Alex has been loving drum ever since!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I personally believe that working with a new student is very important.

It is first impression and it is a starting point of new relationship.

My typical process for working with a new student is:

1. provide a comfortable environment for the student by introducing my self and I engage to get to know each other.

2. most of the time, I would go over the way I teach such as sharing curriculum.

3. I would also show the new student how I play drum.

4. and lastly, try to have the new student to engage with the instruments.

I focus on providing friendly, comfortable, fun environment for the new student because they are precious and should be treated right!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am working on my music production certification which requires me to be a all around musician that does not only focus on one instrument but be a musician that knows the whole music and create my own master piece.

Also I am studying to be Music Therapist which requires me to be musically talented and knows how to utilize music to heal other people.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard pricing system for my lesson:

45 minutes of lesson for 30 dollars per lesson.

There is extra charge if student wants me to come over to their place.

Recommend 2 times or more per week for best progression.

Lesson includes

Basic Theory, Basic Training, Learning a song

Being able to read percussion notation, sheet music and etc.

I always try to make sure that the lesson is very productive and very fun for students as well.


How did you get started teaching?

I first stated teaching drum in 2012.

I have been playing drum in my praise band at my church and Pastor asked me to hold a drum lesson class for new praise team members and others.

I loved interacting with students. thrived to make the lesson productive and fun at the same time and focused on helping them to become a musician.

Ever since then, I started teaching more and more students. I have taught about 30 students with the church problem so far and about 20 students with private lesson so far!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with various students in my career.

I have worked with student as little as 5 years old to 50 years old students.

I have worked with students that are very talented and beginners.

I have worked with students who are eager to learn and students who are forced to learn.

I have worked with students of all age and many different personalities and situations.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The most recent event would be an event that I hosted at my church.

We have invited local artists, musicians to perform and network with each other.

I have played drum in the praise band, played keyboard for my friend's live singing performance and have sang a song with my friend at the event.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If I could give you an advice to a student looking to hire a teacher in drum field, I would obviously tell the student to check qualification of the instructor.

Also, I would emphasize on finding a instructor that can help a student to become a musician instead of just a drummer.

Lastly, I would also emphasize that the student must be able to be confident and comfortable around the instructor to bring the most out of a student!

Make sure you are enjoying the music!
