I have been playing drums for decades. I been in award-winnning drumlines, jazz bands, marching bands, pops orchestras. I performed live on stage and in clubs for many years. I have had several private students over the years and am interested in teaching more. Looking to teach young drummers roughly 4th grade through high school. Beginners especially welcome. Initial focus would be on a practice pad, learning technique and rudiments. This would progress towards rhythm and meter, making use of a metronome. And later, the student would progress to a full kit to begin learning limb independence and how rudiments translate into music across

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 37 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 and contributing to their musicality and never stand on...

Reviews for Lowell drum lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Lowell area.
John B.
I am a 74 year old drummer who took lessons in high school and never played for 50 years until 3 years ago. Even though it instantly came back to me I felt that something was missing. When I contacted Tony on the first lesson he asked me what I would like to accomplish if he were to teach me. I asked him to start with the basics as though I had never played before. He did, he not only had me doing basic rudiments he coached me on bringing my confidence level up, taught me how to tune my drums properly, and to this date im playing with much more confidence and my playing ability has greatly improved because of Tony's ability to teach and recognize my playing problems. Even though I now play in a band I will be staying with tony for drum lessons and I highly recommend him to anyone who is either a beginner or accomplished drummer. He's great and his personalty and demeanor is that of a professional.

Rick is an excellent teacher who makes learning engaging and fun. He structures lessons in a way that make you feel successful and wanting to come back for more. Early on he gets you playing songs you actually know that are within your skill level which makes the whole process super fun. It feels great once you actually play along song you have heard on the radio. As a student starting out in my 40s, Rick made the whole process approachable and comfortable. He builds on each success every lesson to make you a more well-rounded drummer. I would definitely recommend Rick as a teacher no matter your age or skill level.

Josh is a wonderful teacher, he is always energizing and engaging, my son enjoys and look forward to his lessons every week, and he is learning solid technique with Josh, expanding his styles along the way, Josh is so versatile he is capable of teaching any style with ease, we are thrilled with our son’s progress! Josh is always punctual, in case of exceptions, he always communicate in advance, there are detailed notes written on manuscript so there is no confusion as to what to practice for that week. He also communicate with the parents about the lesson each week, we really appreciate the fact that Josh is also a super talented and accomplished performing and recording artist, his insight into stage presence and music production put his teaching on another level, I am sure his expertise will enrich and help prepare my son’s musical career further! Thank you Josh for being such a dedicated and wonderful teacher!
