    Anyone Can Learn With My Method It is completely untrue that some people are "born to sing or play an instrument" while others are not. Using my method, the most "tone deaf" can learn to sing perfectly in tune, the most nasal or unappealing sound can be transformed into the most beautiful resonant tone, and someone with "no talent" can become better than anyone out there. With this superb method when you finish singing your voice will feel better than when you started! All it takes is desire, patience, perseverance, and above all, practice. I also have a unique and very patient teaching st

    I have been playing music my entire life, beginning with the drums in 4th grade and adding the guitar in 6th grade. I teach a style that will give any beginner the foundation they need to build upon in order to become an advanced musician. These weekend lessons would be set in an easy-going, friendly environment with a focus on basic chord structures and scale patterns, or simple drumming techniques to assist with keeping a rhythm or beat.

    I set myself apart from other players in that I can teach you both sides of the glass, not just playing drums but recording techniques to get killer sounds from your recordings. I am 34 years old, but playing drums since the age of 3.  I have played in Rock bands, Progressive bands, Jazz, and currently a Latin rock roots band called Santa Mamba. I have done countless recording sessions for musicians all over the country and other parts of the world. I play other instruments such as guitar, bass, and piano, so I teach about listening while your playing off what other musicians are playing

    Private lessons are vitally important to the development of any well-rounded musician. A good teacher is able to identify areas of weakness and lay out a plan for improvement. Our shortcomings often go unnoticed for years without the keen eye of a musical mentor. We hand select our teachers from a huge pool of talented musicians to offer the best educational environment for our students. We are committed to excellence in education and want to help you achieve your musical goals.

Boston Drum Lessons

Boston Drum Classes

Were you inspired by the Boston Drum-Off held by the Blue Man Group last year? Or perhaps you went to one of the Drum Connection’s performances and pictured yourself in one of the drummer’s places. Regardless, you want drum lessons for yourself or your loved ones, and you don’t know where to start.

Thankfully, we live in modern times, and finding a drum teacher in Boston can be done in seconds. Whether you want drum lessons for your five-year-old or your grandma, we have drum teachers who fit the bill. We also have teachers available at a price point that fits your budget, so you can choose based on each teacher’s level of certification and time spent teaching. Most of our teachers can teach beginner to advanced drum pupils, and many of the drum teachers have music studios not far from your house for on-location lessons. Alternatively, have a drum teacher come to you—so you can avoid going out into the sticky Boston summer or freezing winter weather. You can even have lessons through Skype and avoid the panicked cleanups before your teacher arrives.

To boot, most of our drum teachers also offer lessons on other musical instruments, like voice, guitar, percussion or bass. Maximize your time with your teacher by adding more to your skill set.

Have lessons that are as great for you as your food-loving, music-loving city. Simply go to’s drum page, enter your zip code, and find the teacher you think would fit your needs best.
