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.

More Information About Drum Lessons

Most student's 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 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.
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!
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.
Most children should begin drum lessons at around 7 or 8 years old. The drums are a very physical isntrument and require a lot of dexterity on the part of the player. Drum students who are learning on a full drum kit should be big enough to reach the pedals, and should be physical enough to use their arms and hands for extended periods of time.
