Introduction: My journey in music started during my middle school years when I joined the band, and it continued throughout high school and college, and into my professional career. Along the way, I've had the privilege of learning from exceptional teachers, including some of the most accomplished musicians in Los Angeles. These experienced mentors exposed me to a diverse range of percussion instruments and styles, providing me with a well-rounded musical education. Their instruction and guidance expanded my horizons and deepened my understanding of different musical genres. Drawing from my professional experiences and the extensive training received from these esteemed instructors, I have become a reliable reference for various aspects of music. Whether it's exploring different percussion instruments, delving into specific musical styles, or seeking guidance on musical theory and technique, I can offer valuable insights and expertise. I consider myself fortunate to have had such enriching musical opportunities, and I am excited to share my knowledge and passion for music with my students. Through my teaching, I strive to provide a comprehensive and well-informed perspective that encompasses a wide range of musical elements. I offer private lessons to all ages and create lesson plans for each student to ensure personal and academic goals are met, and even surpassed, all while striving to make learning music fun and enjoyable.

Nolan is great! I’m learning the drums for the first time and he has been amazing at helping with skill development and also patiently answering all of my drum theory questions. Highly recommend!!

At first, I was skeptical of online drum lessons; however, my concerns were put to rest after one lesson with Nolan. His lesson are designed around the student and their goals. Nolan abandons the traditional “one size fits all” approach by finding out what you; the student; want to achieve. He then tailors each lesson to you and your unique goal(s). This was clear after my first 30 minute lesson, as Nolan identified my goal and quickly corrected several aspects of my playing. Since committing to his changes, the quality of my playing has increased dramatically and I have gotten closer to my goal of playing a live set with my band. I cannot recommend Nolan enough. If you’re serious about learning an instrument, sign up with him. You won’t regret it.

Nolan gave us a free drum lesson so that I could see how it went over zoom. He focused on what my son wanted and was patient and understanding. My son is looking forward to continuing the lessons with him

My 4 year son started drum lessons with Nolan, he was so thoughtful in his approach and worked wonderfully with our schedules including times that worked best. Unfortunately we had to pause lessons but Nolan was always so gracious and really made the experience for a toddler approachable and easy to work with. He always followed up the days lesson review so we could continue to practice at home. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn drums especially younger children! Fantastic teacher and such a kind person. :)
