About this pro

Hello,
Perry Senn here ...

Partly, my experience is; I’ve taught well over four thousand drum lessons in my almost thirty years as a professional drummer and educator...

And assisted in several drum students getting into music programs and colleges... I've played thousands and thousands of drum jobs on all stage sizes thoroughout most all of the U.S.,Europe, Canada, Mexico...

The beginners/ intermediate ebook that I use for beginning or intermediate students... ("Drum Control" -the awesome little drum method for Big drumming results) is also the book I wrote, mainly because I couldn't find what I was constantly writing out for my new students...

It is easy to use for the student, and it contains, among the written exercises for skills necessary_videos of the specific rudiments played by me... that helps the student when they’re at home between lessons.

*You may check into me further on my website, which is my firstlast names .com (see above)

Depending on minor adjustments for travel demands. I charge $45/ hour or $30- 1/2 hour lessons...(remember that is to Drive to You)...
[In the spirit of $$ perspective: 'lesson studios' are usually charging around $40 per 1/2 hour lessons]

I'm more than happy to answer any other questions you may have.
At your service,

Sincerely,
Perry Senn.

I enjoy teaching, because I can see it helps other drum students that come to me, 'shortcut' the frustration and time to get good on the drums... I love seeing the light in the student's eyes and the excitement of 'getting' a drumming skill that they didn't expect to have for quite some time...

Have you ever felt that there are ‘secrets’ some drummers seem to know... and you’ve been somehow left out, missed it or mislead?

I did too, and got tired of feeling that way... 
So after all the stages that I've played drums on, from small or festival loacal stages to international concert stages for up to 100,000 fans... 
I’m the guy who teaches these secrets and shortcuts to get you playing and sounding good

  • Doug Coleman

    Perry Senn has been by piano teacher for a little over six months. In that time he has helped me improve my technique, develop better methods of practicing, and has helped me to view my music in a new and different way. He is extremely musically knowledgeable, and brings a performance background to our lessons, which eally hels in the performance aspect of playing. Of great importance to me is his patience and encouagement. If I don't play something corectly, he patiently has be play the passage again until I get it. When a piece I'm working on improves, he is quick to point this out, which motivates me to keep working evne harder. I highly recommend Perry as a music teacher.

  • Marc VanAken, Drummer and Instructor - LA, CA

    I am a professional drummer in LA and been playing and teaching here well over 20 years. I know Perry since about 15 years and when he used to live in LA he was my number one substitute as a drum teacher, as well as a performing drummer for countless gigs. Some of my students still talk about Perry. He is well loved and taught my students very valuable lessons. I always had great reviews about Perry. His knowledge about all styles of music and drumming is astounding. An student should be very proud to have Perry as their teacher.

  • Rob Chiarelli, 2x Grammy Awarded Mixing Engineer

    Perry is a great drummer, percussionist and musician. We have worked together both live and in the studio and he always plays the right thing at the right time. Always a pleasure to work with and a total pro.

  • Donna F.

    Both my sons both like Perry for a teacher so much, that they’ve even decided to switch instruments and are now learning ‘eachothers’ instruments... - I want to include, that I trusted Perry as contributing an evaluation for my sons adhd/processing feedback!!! That hopefully should mean something to someone; How we trust him as an involved instructor and a person.

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

I always had sticks in my hands that I can remember, because my father was my Jr High band dirctor and first teacher...I started playing at about three on pots and pans. I then had Piano lessons from 6-9 yrs old, which taught me to read music pretty well. Then 'got serious' about drumming at about 8 years old...

Although Bass was my first instrument in 5th grade, and I loved it, I wanted to try out for the drum section...  travelling weekly 40 miles to lessons in St Paul, MN, while in High School... I ended up winning over 40 medals in drumming and percussion competitions in WI., Our Award Winning High School Marching band I played snare drum in the drum line...(Even representing WI in Washington D.C. for a presidential Innaguration)... 

I went to University of Green Bay for two years as a Classical Percussion Major... (Piano proficency is required with those programs) Switching to A Jazz Major of Performance and study at William Paterson University-NJ...11 miles from NYC...where I frequently was going to hear ans see world renown jazz players in New York City... 

Literally Experience from all the stages that I've played drums on, from small or festival loacal stages to international concert stages for up to 100,000 fans...

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

Yes, thanks for this question;

I teach for $40.00/hour... 

$25 for 1/2 hour lessons

Once travelling to other residences comes into play- I reserve the right to add a nominal fee $5-10 to cover the amount of extra time involved, (I don't add vehicle expense under 4 miles)... (4.5 -10 miles-$10 to cover gas) 

Thank you.
