About +

Hello aspiring drummers!

I am Colin Gordon, and I am pleased to announce that I will now be offering drum lessons. I am highly experienced in a variety of musical styles, with a vast historical knowledge of drumming from my studies at UCLA.

I recognize the individuality in music and in musicians. Therefore, in order for a student to really absorb the most from my lessons, I form lessons based on what they want to learn, and not what I think they should learn.

The skill level does not matter: from beginners to advanced levels, there are things I can teach you to elevate your drumming to the level you imagine it can go.

I am a very easy-going person and will give lessons in a very encouraging environment, but I take music education very serious and employ highly structured lesson plans based on the student's individual skill level.

Lessons are generally 30 minutes weekly or an hour bi-weekly. Contact me to talk about pricing and set up a schedule. I wish you all the best.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Check the instructor's credentials. Have them send you a resume before moving forward with lessons. With finding teachers online, there is often no reference point as to how experienced or adept the teacher is, and as private music lessons are a very specialized form of teaching, you are going to want to be sure that the teacher is actually very specialized.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. First ask how experienced the teacher is (i.e. how many years they have been a teacher, how many students they have taught.) Also be up front about what you want to learn (I just want to play classic rock, I want to be a good soloist, I want to read music fluently) because when it comes to private lessons, the teacher has to be very knowledgable about the subjects that you want to learn.
