Introduction: Hi, I'm Eric Hassler, an active drummer and drum teacher in Phoenix. I've been playing drums for most of my life, and over the years I've been fortunate enough to study with some truly legendary teachers. I'm excited to pick up sticks every day, and hope you will be too. Drumming is fun and rewarding, as is teaching. And I have a lot of info to share. As a teacher I'm patient, positive, encouraging and fun. I tailor lessons to the student's needs and interests. If you want to develop good technique, build a solid foundation, and have a great time in the process, then you just found your drum teacher! What I love most about teaching is watching a student's confidence grow in real time when they play something they didn't believe they could...when it "clicks." Their expression says, "Oh wow, I'm doing it!" And I say, "I knew you could do it!" It's absolutely the best! And I know these little boosts in confidence influence other aspects of their life.

Ive only been playing drums for a couple months and I’ve been going to Eric for the last 5 lessons maybe, and each time time I’ve gone back to a lesson, I’ve improved a vast amount. Eric teaches proper fundamentals that will create suffice drumming abilities. I notice how quickly I was learning things and picking it up. Eric has always made it fun and exciting in learning material. He has always been very patient and helpful and is extremely knowledgeable for your drumming needs. :)

I get distracted very easily but Eric keeps me on task. He’s very articulate and thorough with his lessons. He’s very encouraging. I look forward to my weekly lesson.

A+. Really nice to my son. My son enjoys himself so much during his lesson that he has motivation to practice daily. Looks forward to lessons.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Lessons are $30 for a half hour, and $60 for a full hour. I only teach one-on-one lessons, not group "camp-style" lessons, so you get my complete and undivided attention during your lesson. To give you an idea of drive-time, I'm near 44th St and Indian School in Phoenix.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I typically start with a short consultation at my home studio to discuss the student's musical interests, their goals, whether they have any musical experience (none required, of course), and to basically get acquainted. I answer any questions they or their parent(s) have. We'll hit the drum pads and usually the drum sets for a few minutes. It's a no-pressure thing. If we're simpatico, we'll create a lesson schedule together.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from the Grove School of Music in Studio City, CA, where I studied drums and percussion with Peter Donald, David Garibaldi, Luis Conte, Chuck Silverman and other first-call L.A. musicians. I got my start playing percussion in middle school. I continued in high school, playing percussion in concert band and marching band. I was an all-state percussionist, and played the drum set in jazz band as well. I also performed in the pit for musical theatre productions. And like most lots of garage bands. I've performed for crowds of 20 to 20,000.
