    Thirty years ago, I studied drums with Billy Wear and the he was the first in a long list of my diverse musical mentors. I use the fundamentals he taught me to this day. (I even still have the books we worked out of) Additionally, I've used his lesson structure with countless private students of my own over the past 20 years. Today I have 2 music degrees, teach at one of the top technical Universities in the nation and lead two working bands on different instruments. None of which would have been possible without a rock solid foundation. If that's what you want from your teacher, Billy is your man.

    Billy taught my son for two years and gave him a great fundamental knowledge of music via his drum lessons. My son is now 18 and switched over easily to guitar because of the musical foundation Billy provided him. If you’re a parent, Billy is great with kids, he is patient, his lessons are interesting, and he can communicate effectively. He keeps the parents engaged by discussing the lessons and assigned homework. He is easy going, very nice, I highly recommend Billy Wear.

    I have taken lessons with Billy for a few years now. His lessons are challenging and fun. He is knowledgeable about playing all types of music and brings his experience as a gig musician and Navy drummer into every lesson. If you want to learn some solid technique and get comfortable behind the kit Billy is your guy!

    Billy has been teaching my some for over two years - in-person at first and now virtually since we've moved away. Billy is patient and encouraging, and my son has learned so much from his time with Billy!

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

I teach every student with their goals in mind. I use the DrumsRFun series from Kevin White for beginners and also Tommy Igoe’s Hands For A Lifetime along with Groove Essentials.
