    Tracy has makes learning the drums so much fun! He teaches all styles of music and is able to break down the mechanics of technique. I never dreamed I'd have the ability to play so fast and effortlessly around the drum set. Wish I had found him sooner. I highly recommend Tracy.

    Tracy has great patience as a teacher. He has always been willing to take the time to work on the details of technique's and at the same time foster my own personal style and approach to playing the drums. I credit him for breaking down those walls I as drummer get stuck behind and setting new challenges for me all the while having the answers and the know how. Tracy is a versatile drummer who walks the walk. He's got great passion for his craft and teaching and that is an infallible quality. Tracy has put a lot of thought into his teaching studio, creating a professional environment equipped with two drum kits and stellar recording equipment that makes you want stay and play. Since studying with Tracy over the last year, I have received many compliments on how I have improved in my fluidity around the kit as well as my technique being more controlled and better executed. More importantly, I can sense and feel the improvement as well.

    I've been playing for 20 years. I just started working with Tracy, but immediately I'm seeing benefits. After my first lesson, the next day I sat down to practice and immediately could do this bass drum foot thing I've been trying to do for so long.... very slowly of course, but I could see at least how I was going to get it to happen. Awesome! Tracy is professional, kind, a good listener, and a great drummer with the ability to assess what he needs to teach in order for me to reach the goals I set out. I don't mind the drive up from SF at all... he's going to help me immensely.

Question and answer

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I work with beginning drummers and show them fundamentals of drumming. I also work with many working professional drummers and help to relieve them of stress or pain they experience from poor technique. I teach students everything from developing good practice habits to starting a band of their own. My studio includes audio and video recording gear that allows students to experience their growth. As they learn they also have great demos to use when seeking musical employment.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Drum teachers are everywhere.. but a teacher that can show you the fundamentals of proper technique are the ones worth pursuing.
