About this pro

I am an experienced teacher (and a retired classroom teacher). I teach students of all ages. My studio has won awards from Gwinnett County. I have been a Teacher of the Year on 5 different occasions. Many of my former students are professinal musicians and/or percussion teachers.

I challenge my students without frustrating them each week.

My monthly tuition of $75 - 1/2 hour lessons and $140 for 1 hour lessons are very reasonable.

I fashion my lessons to meet the needs of individual students ( drum set, concert drumming, marching drumming etc.)

Please see my website: johnlamattinadrums.com

My online teaching makes my availability to students everywhere.

I teach to your time schedule (10AM-7:30 PM Mon-Fri, 9AM-2PM on Saturday

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

I check to see what their abilities and experiences. I can evaluate what they can do immediately and project to them what we will be able to do in the near future and further.

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

I am a certified classrom teacher and apply my experiences to my drum students. I have studied with two mentors, Al Miller and Dom Famularo. Mr. Famularo can recommend me.

I am a working musicians playing with small combos, big bands, church groups and recording sessions.

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

How did you get started teaching?

My first drum teacher, Bob Brown got a job with a band that worked 6 nights a week. He had been teaching me for 3 years and was confident that I could take over his students. I was able to take over 50 students in my 3rd year of college.

I work with students of all ages 5 years old and up.

Many of my fromer students are professional musicians and/or percussion teachers.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I play drums in the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olypics in Atlanta.

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

I have patience with my students. I challenge my students each week without frustrating them.

I have a sense of humor and I love to play drums!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students shuld have short term and long term goals. They can be specific ( I want to be on the high school drum line) or general (I think that drumming will be fun).
