Featured Fairfield Drum Teachers

Larry V

Instruments:

A professional performer since age 15, Larry draws from a deep well of musical influence, including gospel, blues, funk, jazz and soul.  These various genres have collectively shared his unique sound, his groove “brand”, which is in full display in his performances and music recordings. Larry's resume’ reads like a “Who’s Who” list, having toured and recorded with those musicians listed above, as well as THE WHISPERS, MARTHA REEVES, THE MARVALETTES, CHARLES BROWN, BUFFY SAINT-MARIE, RANDY CRAWFORD and many more.  His work with the popular San Francisco Bay Area blues group, RON THOMPSON & THE RESISTORS contributed to the band earning two Bay Area Music Awards (BAMMY). His impressive career also includes a motion picture role as a nightclub band member in the Academy Award nominated “Peggy Sue Got Married” and being featured on the ABC Television San Francisco local affiliate, KGO for his work with “GRAMMY In The Schools” as a mentor and instructor.  World tours with jazz pianist, BRIAN AUGER and blues harp legend CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE round out a phenomenal career in music making. The true power of the “Groove Merchant” is exhibited in his latest musical creation, the “Oakland Scratch Groove”.  This groove is a true reflection of his talent as he offers his brand of penetrating, soulful, authentic “root music” grooves.

Tracy G

Instruments:

Tracy is a band instructor at the San Francisco Day School and the Flute Instructor, as well as their Woodwind Instructor for their After-School Program, and the Flute Instructor at the American Indian Public Charter School in Oakland. Tracy received her Professional Studies Diploma from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (having also received her BM there) where she studied with Tim Day (Principal Flutist of the San Francisco Symphony); she also did work for her MM at UCSB where she studied with renowned soloist/educator Jill Felber.  As an advocate of new music, Tracy can be seen performing in her flute and guitar duo Silver & String, and the Mik Nawooj Ensemble (which is a unique ensemble that blends the genres of classical, hip-hop, and jazz; and even performed at the renowned Yoshi’s SF Jazz Club). While living in the Bay Area Tracy has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to perform in concert with amazing musical talents such as rock legend Sting, renowned mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, and trumpeter Chris Botti.

Pejman A

Instruments:

I have been insfluenced and surrounded with music since childhood. I have experience in multiple aspects of music from performance to teaching and just about everything in between. I love working with students to achieve their goals. The most rewarding feeling for me is when my student feels they've accomplished a technique or method on their respective instrument. I strive to keep lessons joyous yet keep the student motivated to practice at home. I travel to students' home and will soon have my own studio to give the student the option to travel to me.

More Information About Drum Lessons

Standard pieces of a drum kit include the high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and drum sticks. If a student is at the very beginning stages of their learning, they can also start with basic drum practice pad. Other drums taught are the snare, bongos, conga, or djembe.
Taking in-home drum lessons is a great way to perfect the art of drumming. Our teachers can travel to students as long as they have the instrument available. Lessons are usually once a week, and the majority of students notice significant progress in a very short time. We suggest practicing every day between your lessons to achieve your drumming goals.
Lessons focus on learning the technique of the instrument and learning to read music. Focus is placed on learning the appropriate rhythms, patterns, and technique for holding the drum sticks. Beat patterns will be emphasized, as will exposing the student to various types of drumming styles.
Adult drum lessons are a great way to learn a new skill, or perfect your drumming. Our adult students notice significant progress in a very short time, and have fun in the process! The lessons are structured to work with your skill level and musical goals in mind.
Drum lessons for children should start at around age 7 or 8. Starting younger than this is generally not recommended, as the drums are a very physical isntrument requiring extensive use of the arms and hands. A child should achieve a certain dexterity before beginning to learn the drums. Also, a child should be able to reach the pedals of a standard drum kit if they are going to be learning rock drumming.
