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.

Bruce T

Instruments:

I came up through the Fairfax County band program.  Due to circumstances beyond my control, I wasn't able to "give back" to this as a public school teacher.  My wish now is to help as many current band students as I can. I relocated from Virginia and am looking to establish a presence in Montgomery County.   

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.

More Information About Drum Lessons

Purchasing a drum kit can be a significant investment. Drum kits will start at around $500 and will usually include, a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair fo drum sticks. Our teachers can also teach drum lessons on snare drum. bongos, conga, or djembe. Most students will also be required to purchase a drum practice pad for practicing their beats on the go.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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 children start drum lessons at age 7 or 8. The drums require increased physicality in the hands and fingers, so a younger student may find drumming very difficult. Students studying on a drum kit should be able to reach the pedals of the drums.
