Featured Franklin Drum Teachers

Jeremi M

Instruments:

I am a 14 yr professional musician/educator that has performed in the US, Canada, and Europe. I hold a B.S. from MTSU in the Liberal Arts ( music, theater, production). I am a passionate Educator who pays strict attention to each student's personal interests and my main goal is to keep the musical experience for each student FUN. Not only do I facilitate a program for each student that caters to their growing interests,  I also seek to curate more interest by offering new paths of discovery. I want to share and nuture a growing love for music in each student's life. After all, music is FUN! I have gained inexplicable amounts of joy, self-discipline, self confidence, and fulfillment, not only from music itself, but from learning, teaching, and sharing the experience with others. I have been with Musika for 5 years and have had great experiences teaching students through their services. "A great musician has found the courage to practice what he/she COULD NOT DO, and a great music educator has found the path that makes that very practice of COULD NOT'S a FUN one!"

Russ S

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of Berklee College of music in Boston with 10 years of teaching experience, and 17 years playing experience. I have won multiple drum competitions and have experience performing in all styles from jazz (Phil Woods) to folk (Jay Ungar and Molly Mason). I first got excited about the drums from watching local bands play in my hometown of Ithaca, NY. From there I began to play in the jazz band at a community music school, and soon after that began playing in elementary school concert and jazz band. Soon after, I started playing in cover bands and expanding my repertoire. In high school I won two downbeat awards for best pop/rock drummer (2004) and outstanding performance for jazz drumming (2005). In high school I played in various touring groups, and started Berklee in 2009. Since Berklee, I have worked on Celebrity Cruise lines as a drummer for jazz and rock bands, as well as playing for the theatrical performances and musical reviews. I am happy to have my teaching studio up and running in Nashville! My influences are many, but if I were to break them into categories: Rock: John Bonham, Abe Cunningham, Abe Laboriel Jr Funk: Chris Dave, Ziggy Modeliste, Dave Weckl Jazz: Tony Williams, Max Roach, Art Blakey.

Tom M

Instruments:

My name is Tom and I'm a young professional drummer living in Nashville. I'm originally from Iowa, went to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and have lived in Nashville for a little over two years. I have been playing drums all my life, starting on pots and pans and eventually graduating to bigger and better things. I was brought up on a heavy dose of classic rock and The Beatles, and later got into jazz, concert percussion, and a myriad of other styles and genres. Aside from teaching, I spend most of my time playing both in Nashville and all over the country with multiple bands and artists and also recording new music in the studio.  

Tim G

Instruments:

I am enthusiastic about teaching others both how to play and understand the art of music. In 2009 I graduated from North Central University where I truly fell in live with music and gained a passion for learning and performing through both my education and the rich Fine Arts culture in the city of Minneapolis where I studied. Since graduating, performing professionally has been a wonderful experience and tantamount to my ongoing growth as a musician. I have had the experience of performing in all sorts of venues domestically and abroad from small clubs and churches to a 360 stage in the U.S. Airways Arena as well as Malaysia, Thailand, and South America.

Eric D

Instruments:

Hi! My name is Eric DeVaughn. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland drumming has been my passion for over 15 years. I attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music on scholarship where I studied with some of the best teachers in the world including John Ramsay (Jazz Messengers) and Mike Mangini (Dream Theater, Steve Vai). I have since taught students in many cities across America and toured the world as a porfessional drummer. I now wish to share my passion for teaching and learning with the Nashville community!

More Information About Drum Lessons

A drum kit usually includes a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair of drum sticks. If you are taking another style of drumming, you may purchase a snare, bongos, conga, or djembe. Most students will also purchase a drum practice pad at a music store, which is a portable way to practice the beats and techniques of drumming.
In home lessons are a great choice for busy families and students. The only thing neccesary for in home lessons is the instrument! Our teachers travel to students homes usually once a week for lessons. Students can practice their drums every day to notice the most progress.
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.
Taking drum lessons as an adult can help you achieve your goals as a drummer! Whether you want to play rock style drums or African drums, our teachers are here to help you reach you musical goals on the instrument.
Our recommended starting age for drums is around 8 for students wishing to play a drum kit. For the snare drum, the youngest recommended age is 5 or 6, as playing can prove tiresome on younger hands. The drum is an instrument that is great for all a ges and skill levels, whether it's a complete beginner at age 5 or an experienced musician who wishes to study rhythm firsthand.
