Drum Lessons

Dave has been a very professional drum instructor. He is energetic, fun and patient while teaching drums remotely. My son has really enjoyed his lessons because of Dave’s enthusiasm and knowledge. I would highly recommend Dave.

Dave has been teaching my daughter, Rose, for years. So many, in fact, that I can't remember how many! We started with in-person lessons but have been doing virtual lessons for at least a couple of years. Dave is engaging and very good about helping with specific requests. If Rose has a band performance and wants to practice her part, they work on that. That being said, he brings his own expertise to the table and has taught Rose a lot. He keeps her challenged and engaged, and that is no easy task! I highly recommend Dave. He's a good guy and a great teacher.

Dave Brandwein has worked with our son since 2012. He was 12 years old when he began taking lessons and he is now a senior in high school. Dave's drum instruction is exceptional and helped our son matriculate into elite jazz and ensemble programs. Dave is always professional and has a great one-on-one relationship with our son.

My daughter has been taking drum lessons from Dave for over three years. Her percussion skills and love of different musical genres has continuously and vigorously grown. Dave is always upbeat and professional during the lessons and his visits are an important part of our week.

Dave has been teaching our 9-year-old daughter drums for over a year now! He is fantastic. He has never been late, shows great passion and enthusiasm for his work and is a joy to be around. Our daughter absolutely loves her lessons with him! He is also very knowledgeable about equipment when things need to be replaced or repaired. I highly recommend Dave! You will not be disappointed.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Students purchase at least one month of lessons at a time (at the beginning of each month). That way, we can lock in lesson times and ensure that you have a spot in the schedule.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After emailing or speaking on the phone, Dave likes to set up an introductory lesson to make sure he is a good fit for the student (either remote via Zoom or possibly in-person with COVID precautions). In that meeting, they will go over the following: student's past experience, goals, basic technique to approach the drums, and at least one key NEW skill or song by the time the first lesson is over.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Dave has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Illinois, over 20 years of experience playing drums/percussion, 20+ years of taking drum lessons and classes himself (from world class teachers), over 12 years of experience playing in bands/groups of all genres, leadership experience from working with kids and adults and multiple camps, and the real world experience of being a working drummer in Los Angeles/Chicago.
