    Eddie is an excellent drum teacher. He has been playing over 40 years, and yet, he can teach and relate across the board. Beginner to advanced - Eddie Can move you forward to what you hope and dream about being a drummer. And he is a darn nice human being too. I was lucky to find him!

About this pro

I have the time, knowledge, resources, experience, family support and most of all passion to take the time to develop and write custom drum lessons for students. This gives the student the chance to learn drums using songs and artists they like. Books often maintain a "modeled format" in order to be marketed at a profit. Unfortunately this leaves a lot off the table when learning. I also like to take a single book and write additional lessons from it that are better than the book and tailor it to the strengths and weaknesses of the student. I absolutely LOVE to do what I do! It's very fulfilling and gratifying to help teach others about the drumming. Especially younger kids. I'm blessed to be able to share my knowledge, passing along the "torch" so-to-speak, to people of all ages regarding something I'm so passionate about. Over the years I've seen my students grow up and grow into there drumming abilities as an art form and as a form of entertainment and although many drum as simply a hobby, it becomes a passionate aspect of their lives.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My lessons are simply $20 per half hour. If you prefer a one hour lesson, it's $40. Because I don't teach at a store I'm able to charge $5-10 less per lesson. Stores charge the teachers a room fee. I don not have this. I also provide everything you need regarding materials at no charge. This includes lesson material, charts, audio recordings, video recording etc...
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I invite the student and the parent over for an evaluation. There, they get to meet me, see my home, my studio and also meet my family. I explain how I work, with the purpose of setting specific mutual expectations. I also question and evaluate the student and use the fact finding session to develop a long-term lesson plan using short term goals, long term goals focusing on the students desires.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I attended Knapp School of Music and studied with Skip Layton, I also studied with several private drummers/teachers when I was younger. I'm always self-studying currently via many sources.
