Introduction: I provide a high level of drum lessons for individuals of all ages who desire to learn how to play drums extremely well. My students always have fun and make progress. I am a high caliber, energetic, expressive, explosive drummer in my live performances. I'm also a lead singing drummer. As a caring, nurturing and patient drum instructor my lessons will significantly benefit beginner, intermediate and advanced students regardless of their age. This and so much more is conveyed in my lessons with students. My teaching skills come from a background and experiences that remain unparalleled by most other drum instructors. I am thrilled to inspire young and older drummers to be the best rhythm masters that they can possibly aspire to be. To achieve all that they can and more is what I want for all students. Drum lessons can be at the students home or at my home. A nominal additional cost for travel time is added.

Drum Lessons

Russell is a great instructor who adapts his style to best work with the student. He is passionate & enthusiastic about music & and my children and I are having a great time learning with and from him. Each lesson feels and flows differently which keeps everyone fully engaged. I would highly recommend Russell to anyone looking to learn drums.

Drum Lessons (for children or teenagers)

Russell not only makes the lessons fun, but he is also very serious about the musical education he delivers. We are fortunate to have him as a teacher for our 12 year old.

Russell is an excellent drum teacher. He is a phenomenal drummer and makes progressing easy and fun. He is so relaxed and helpful. I have learned so much in such a short time from Russell.

I've been taking drum lessons with Russell now for the past 4-6 months and my drumming has improved significantly. Russell is not only great personality, but has a well of knowledge and experience that he will share with you as soon as you start your lessons. I'm looking forward to my transition into an amazing drummer with Russell's knowledge by my side.

My son Dustin has gone from an uncertain child drummer to a confident teen drummer in his lessons with Russell. Russell is a patient, kind, inviting, encouraging, and most of all, inspiring teacher. He has a seemingly easygoing manner of teaching with the student, while his good nature is coupled with a sharp focus on the student's individuality, growth and progress. He wants nothing more than for your child to succeed , to feel great about their drumming, and to reach ever higher levels of proficiency. Three years and I couldn't be a happier parent. Now he is at his first year in a Boarding School yet one of the top things he wants to do when he comes back for the Holidays is have some lessons with his favorite teacher, Russell.
