  • Professional & Fun Drum Lessons

    Unleashed Drum Studio🎶

    (25 reviews)

    My son Max has been taking drum lessons from Blake for almost a year. He hit the ground running from day one, teaching the basics including reading music which I believe every musician should know. Blake's methods and personality have made drum lessons enjoyable and Max looks forwarded to his weekly sessions. I would absolutely recommend Blake to anyone interested in learning to play the drums.

  • Drum Lessons & Consultation

    MEHDrums

    I am a patient teacher, who loves to teach students of all ages and musical backgrounds. I take the time to carefully develop a curriculum, and a unique learning experience, for each student, in a relaxed environment. I teach fun, helpful and informative drum lessons at any skill level. I have 15 years teaching experience, and 25 years professional playing experience. I have studied drums and percussion for many years, under the tutelage of some amazing teachers. By age 6, it was recommended by my music teacher and great friend, Tom Makoviecki, that my parents take me for lessons with New York broadway/session drummer and educator Pat O' Donnell, where I developed the passion for the instrument, and developed the discipline to study it diligently. Rick Dior, Jack Winters and Tom Nichols followed through High School, and opened my mind and my playing to new worlds of music, and higher levels of musicianship. I studied percussion under Ray Des Roches at William Patterson College before becoming an instructor myself. With the help of fellow educator, Matt Patella, I began taking students in 2001. MEHDrums was born and now thriving in Los Angeles, CA. Together we will develop your confidence, balance and control, and focus, while concentrating on the essential elements of drumming: * Counting and Keeping Time * Balance, Posture and Coordination * Rudiments * Groove and Feel * Listening Skills * Improvisation and Soloing * Sight Reading and Drum Notation * Musicianship and Music Appreciation * Charting/Learning Songs * Playing for the Song We provide: * Rock, Alternative Rock and Funk Rock * Classic and Psychedelic Rock * All Variations of Pop and Dance * All Variations and Eras of the Blues * Traditional Latin and Afro-Cuban Grooves * Traditional, Contemporary and Alternative Country * New Orleans Funk/Second, Line/Zydeco, etc. * Hard Rock, Punk Rock Arena Rock and Metal * Afro-Beat, High-Life, and Most Traditional African Styles * Roots Reggae, Ska, Dance Hall, One-Drop and Rock Steady * Straight Ahead and Big Band Jazz (Small or Large Ensemble) * Experimental Indie Rock and Anti-Folk, and Traditional Folk * Classical Percussion, Marches, Sound Effects and Film Scoring, etc. * All Variations and Eras of Funk, Soul and RNB, including Hip Hop, Neo-Soul, Gospel, Grime, etc. I can help you develop a feel for drum set playing, and learning songs. I can also help you refine your technique, to develop the freedom to facilitate any style or level of drumming you wish to pursue. Here are some testimonials from my students: * "Mike Holowatch is the best teacher I have had so far in my musical adventures. He not only made me a better player, but he opened my mind musically to not only think as a drummer, but as a musician. I have learned a lot from him in all styles of music such as Latin, 2nd line, rock/pop, and r&b/funk. I took lessons with him for nearly 3 years. I barely scratched the surface. I highly recommend taking lessons with Mike. When you walk away from it you will have great technique and be a very well rounded player and musician." - Josh Toth * "I took drum lessons with Mike Holowatch for the better part of two years. His vast depth of knowledge and excellent ability to breakdown and explain concepts, enabled me to not only perform at a higher level, but expand my musical horizons to places I had never thought to venture. Since my time with him, I have continued to record and play shows with various artists, as well as perform with the Monmouth Symphony Orchestra. Everything I learned be it drum technique, sight reading, along with the spiritual side of drumming can be attributed to him. I continue to this day to work on the ideas and concepts he passed on to me. Mike Holowatch is an asset to the drum community, as he continues to educate and pass the knowledge of our wonderful instrument." - Mike Ruvolo * Mike is a great drum teacher; he can help you achieve your goals because he has the ability to instruct and to understand a student's strengths and weaknesses. He is an extremely talented musician who can actually teach all levels of drumming. Mike helped me with sight reading music and always gave me the confidence I needed to take my drumming to the next level. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or pro, Mike will improve your drumming... That is a 100% guarantee! Much love an appreciation goes out to him for taking the time to teach me correctly which allowed me to continue to practice on my own after he moved away. I only took lessons for a year but I learned so much in that little bit of time and it was an enjoyable year of drum lessons with him; I only wish he'd move back so I could start lessons again. -Susan O'Leary Michael is a superb drum instructor, with the ability to gain rapport easily. I was thrilled to pick up my old instrument again and Michael has been successful, and teaching me the skills I forgot so long ago. To anyone interested in a dedicated and dynamic teacher, look no further. -Brianne Sheehan

    Chuckernaut Music

    Study with a trained and experienced professional, and get it right the first time. I graduated from Berklee and have been teaching for over 10 years. I've created a program that generates the best results in a short time. My approach was developed in such a way that it's very modifiable to fit your skill level and what you want to get out of the lessons, and it's fun at the same time. We'll actually learn music by making music, what a concept! I'm happy to come to your place for lessons, or we could do the lessons at my place. I have a Roland V-Drum kit along with a home studio, and we can use my studio to practice to a click, play to tracks and even record the lesson. This will give you an idea of what the audience hears as compared what you think they hear. My rates are the following: * $40 per hour -- my place at North Hollywood, NoHo Arts District * $40 per hour -- over Skype or something similar * $55 per hour -- your place, such as a basement, a garage, a lock out, a backyard and wherever you practice I accept cash or credit/debit card, and every time you refer friend, a relative or a bum on the street and they take a lesson, you'll get a free lesson!

AL's drum lessons

(1 review)

If there's a thumping-thumpity-thump that keeps playing in your head but your hands can't carry it out, it's time you meet up with drummer Al Serrato. This teacher fulfills the longing of music enthusiasts who want to learn how to play the drums.

Why choose Al? Aside from his passion and expertise with the instrument, there are a number of reasons to pick him to be your teacher. First, his sessions are laid-back and fun-filled; second, it only takes counting from 1 to 4 to learn the basics; third, it is his mission to make you a success.

Making the student know that I care about them, that's what matters most.

Be on the lookout for Al's brilliant plans for his students. Coming soon are recitals, talent shows, and competitions where his students display their talents and shine.

The great thing is what they learn, they get to keep for a lifetime. That's the beauty in learning how to play drums.

Choose a teacher who cares for each student's aspiration. Opt to learn the drums with Al Serrato.
