Andreas B

Instruments:

Hello whoever you are, I am Andreas. I come from Sweden and live in San Fernando Valley, CA (Los Angeles). I started playing the drums at the age of 5 and played in bars when I was in my young teens. At the age of 16, I won first place the annual Swedish Championships in Drums. Quite an interesting concept, no? Next year, I won it all again. All through my mid-teens, I attended a very unique Swedish music conservatory, maybe one of the very finest in our country, called "Music Factory". This school has now grown to be the birthplace of many great young Swedish musicians, included myself. Already working on pro-gigs in Sweden, I made a different choice than most of my friends. Instead I decided to move, by myself, from Sweden to Los Angeles and become a professional drummer.  When I moved to LA, I was in dire need to get a gig. Let me tell you. It wasn't easy, but I did end up landing a gig with Lady Gaga, one summer in 2009. Since, I have played for multiple different artists, on multiple major record labels. I have also worked with some of the world's leading producers, the men behind songs you hear every day on the radio, as a studio drummer and/or bass player. Artists ranging from Aly & AJ on Disney Channel to spaced-out mixed symphonic electronica with Paul Oakenfold, the English DJ legend.  Though my time so far in LA, I have had the chance to aquaint myself with many other backing band musicians, for other artists or shows, from lead-guitarist Rafael Moreira (NBC The Voice, Pink, Christina Aguilera) and the guys gigging with Chris Cornell, to the younger rhythm section for Macy Gray.

Joong-In R

Instruments:

I am a classical trained musician. I was brought up in Bloomington Indiana, the home of the no.1 rated music school in the States (by the teacher's association). Ever since I was 10, I was involved with the University music life. I had the fortune to study with Janos Starker - perhaps the greatest cello technician in the world! His playing style is comfortable, clean, natural, and free of tension problems. Anyone can learn this great technique and benefit from it. I stress this technique on all of the instruments we teach. I was the best teacher in Los Angeles area for producing the most competition winners of SYMF a few years back (cello).  

Dylan R

Instruments:

  Growing up in Chicago there was no shortage of great music. Rock, jazz, the symphony; I tried to soak it all up, and it's that approach that I bring to lessons. With 15 years of teaching experience, I tailor lesson plans to the student's intrests and goals.  I aim to balance reading and playing by ear, learning technique, and nurturing the student's individual playing style.  Most importantly, I always encourage students to notice when they sound great. As a pro drummer, I've toured all over the world and encountered all kinds of musicians from a Katy Perry cover band in New Jersey to traditional Street Samba bands in Rio. At the end of the day, I'm still learning just like my students.  

Robert A

Instruments:

I began playing drums at the age of 12 when I joined my middle school marching band. By the time I was in high school, my passion for music making and involvment with various performing groups had completely consumed me. I decided to further my musical endeavors by studying jazz performance at two different music schools. I have obtained a bachelors degree from Florida State University (2012) and a masters degree for the California Institute of the Arts (2014). I have been playing professionally since 2008 in the northwest Florida and Los Angeles areas.

More Information About Drum Lessons

Most students would ideally start with a 5 piece drum kit complete in addition to a high-hat, crash, and ride cymbal, but any student can start with as little as a drum practice pad and a pair of drum sticks. A student can learn to read and play rhythms using both hands using any type of drum, including 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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's drum lessons may include, but are not limited to: how to hold drum sticks, traditional or matched grip, where to strike the drums and cymbals, how to read music, including rhythms and drum/percussion notation, how to assemble a drum kit, and how to change and tune drum heads, drum rudiments; both traditional and modern marching band rudiments, music theory, basic form and analysis, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the drums!
Drum lessons are a wonderful way to learn a new skill as an adult. Many of our adult drum students have never played the drums before, and they remark about just how fun it is! Our adult drum lessons are tailor made for you skill level and desired musical style.
We suggest students start drum lessons at age 7 or 8. The drums are a very physical instrument, requiring long periods of dexterity in the hands and fingers. A drum student learning from a drum kit should be able to reach the pedals on the drums.
