If you are a beginner looking to rock on drum-set, but also committed to learn the fundamentals and proper form, I may be the best fit for you.
Do you need a teacher who is positive, patient, encouraging, and can explain things in an easy to follow manner?
I am a flexible teacher and will work around your learning style to make sure you are on the right track and gaining an important understanding of drumming and rhythm.
I can work with students completely new to music, rhythm, and drumming.
I can also take on intermediate level drummers looking to take their skills and understanding up a level.
Together we will customize a practice routine for your current skill level and goals. I also help guide you with creative exercises so you can explore and express your own style.
I am a classically trained musician, mixed with 20 years of performing live with rock bands. I have toured internationally and have numerous recordings. I am a multi-instrumentalist and play bass, guitar, and saxophone.
What really sets me apart is my encouraging teaching style and ability to convey drumming in an easy to follow manner. I also put a focus on creativity and guiding you in expressing yourself through drumming.
Works really well with our 5 yr old, keeps him on track when he gets distracted and makes the lessons fun. Really cool for us to hear him play and see that he knows the names of the parts of the drum kit. He’s started to read music, too! Mindee is great, can’t recommend her enough.
My experience with drum teachers was neutral to negative until I began lessons with Mindee. Former instructors either did not take me seriously, had no progressive method of teaching, or had a strict method that never allowed for deviations, even for adults. Fortunately, I found Mindee! After just a couple of lessons with Mindee, I recognized that had I begun with her, I would be playing extremely well by now. Initially, she had to and is still assessing my level of playing and making sure I get the skills I need to go from being a student to being a player, a musician who plays drums. In addition, Mindee makes sure the lessons are relevant to my goals. If you are a beginner or a parent wanting to get your child drum lessons from a very conscientious, unintimidating, capable instructor who will guide you or your child into the art of drumming, Mindee Jorgensen will surpass your expecrtations. If you have already had some experience drumming but feel you are stuck, Mindee will get you on the right track for fast improvement. I have no reservations in saying that Mindee is the best drum teacher I have ever had. She is teaching for all the right reasons: a real passion for the drums and the desire to help students develop their drumming to their full potential.
She is very patient with kids. Makes lessons personal and asks questions so the kids look forward to the next lesson.
Mindee has a super pleasant and professional demeanor. She listens and cares about any struggles I have. She pushes me in a pretty direct way, but backs it up with tons of positive reinforcement. Mindee always has lesson plans ready to go and she is plenty knowledgeable about her craft. I recommend her to anyone. She's great.
