    (8 reviews)

    What's your self-expression? What results are you looking to achieve from drumming? Do you have a favorite song, groove, or chop you'd like to learn but just don't know how to explain it or break it down? My name is Greg Washington, and I am offering private drum lessons for beginners and intermediate-level students of all ages. In my lessons, you will learn to implement new ideas, with a tailored approach, enhancing your overall learning experience. From inception to implementation, your creativity will be developed into a living, breathing, expression, ready to be applied in any musical situation. Learn things like reading music, popular drum grooves, fundamental coordination skills, proper hand and foot technique, counting, playing with a metronome, and more. In addition to learning these things, you will get to apply these concepts and perform them with songs in various styles of music. This is where the magic happens. I am committed that you find and develop your own authentic self-expression. For your convenience, an additional set of drums will be provided for you to play. Satisfaction is guaranteed! Just bring your sticks!

  • Casey Crogan

    27 year old professional musician Casey Crogan has been rising as a first-call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area over the past 6 years. Within that short time, Casey has toured the country several times over, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and has gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. Casey has experience teaching ages 5-65, from private to group lessons (Casey has been a camp counselor for Summer Music programs). Casey can travel to you, but he prefers teaching from his home drum studio (with 2 drum kits for enhanced visual learning)! Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. He has the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat-playing drummers. His approach focuses on the following: * having fun * building an understanding and relationship with each drum * the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming * how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums * basic mechanical techniques * development of each limb * learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them * learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set *how to play in a band *learning your favorite songs * gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer

  • Singing-sticks

    I've been playing the drums since I was 6 years old. At the age of 16, I joined the marching band, making me the first black female drummer in my hometown, Gaffney, SC. With that experience, I learned the fundamental of percussion. through achieving goals with drumming, I learned to pass on what I learned, helping others. The Boys & Girls Club allowed me to share my talents with others through drum lessons. I must say I enjoyed teaching percussion and look forward to teaching again.

    Raven J.

    My first session with Greg was the 1st time I'd ever held a set of drum sticks. Several weeks later Greg encouraged me to enter the Hit Like a Girl Contest. Greg helped me learn the song I wanted to play and he filmed the session that I submitted to the contest. Greg works with my ever changing schedule, provides honest feedback, and goes the extra mile for his students. I'm happy to have found Greg and even happier to be developing my chops under his skilled ears.
