Featured Norfolk Drum Teachers

Nathaniel A

Instruments:

Nathaniel is teacher from Germantown, Maryland with almost ten years of teaching drums and percsussion under his belt.  He also is an active performer in several groups and ensembles.  Some of his favorite artists are Bach, Vinnie Colaiuta, Bernard Purdie, Jimmy Smith, Cal Jader, and the Crinkles.

Gregory H

Instruments:

I'm a passionate teacher with over 7 successful years of teaching experience. I began teaching voice, piano, guitar, saxophone, and drums as I completed my degree in Music Education and Composition.  

Michael W

Instruments:

I have loved music for as long as I can remember and have been involved in the arts almost as long.  I have a background in piano and theatre, but most of all percussion.  I feel that percussion is the grandparent of music and is the most universal form of music.  In my time as a performer, I have been given the opportunity to perform at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh as well as both the VA/DC and New York Percussive Arts Society Day of Percussion. I have taught privately and with drumlines and percussion ensembles, and have taught children the age of 5 and Music Education majors.

Robert S

Instruments:

I have been playing drums for 14  years and started when I was 10. The influence I had from other drummers that I saw was what sparked my interest in playing them. Seeing the greats like Roger Taylor of Queen, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, or even now Matt Greiner of August Burns Red, I wanted that, but I knew I couldn't get there without practice. After taking up lessons myself, and I continue to do so even after all those years, I have learned what it takes to be a great drummer. I currently play in a synthpop band.

Colin S

Instruments:

I am a dedicated music professional carrying 20 years of musical education and 15 years of musical performance.  In 2011, I graducated from Frostburg State University with my Bachelor's in music education with a percussion focus.  I have been touring the country with bands since 2012, and have been recording just as long.  Performing is a crucial part of my life and I have been fortunate enough to open for bands like, Flowbots, Man-Man, and Real Estate, as well as having recorded in studio with world class musicians such as Anita Thomas.  I play all instruments to some extent, but I am most comfortable behind a drum-set (although trumpet and piano are close runners up).  Having worked with many students of all ages and walks of life, my other passion is teaching and I find endless joy in watching my students learn and grow into musicians.

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.
In home drum lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills. In home lessons are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. Lessons are taught once a week and significant progress can be made in a short time. Our teachers will suggest that students practice every day for the best results.
Teachers will focus on learning rhythms, drum patterns, hitting techniques and will help expose the student to various types of drumming styles. You will be recommended various types of drumming method books which will help your child improve and notice progress on the instrument.
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.
