Hi! I teach online drum and percussion and lessons on Zoom. I teach all ages and experience levels on drum set (all styles) and Afro-Cuban hand percussion. I believe that every student is unique and requires a unique approach. Whether you have never played an instrument before or you have been playing for years - I can always find ways to help my students deepen their skills and musicality. With my drum lessons you will grow your love of music, strengthen your rhythm and your technique, become confident in any style of drumming you choose to study, and have a bunch of fun while doing it! A little about me: I am a drummer and percussionist with 18 years of teaching and performing experience. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Music from Berklee College of Music, focusing on performance, music production, and composition. I have performed with many different groups around the United States, Mexico, and Cuba. I have also performed as a guest artist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I play drums and percussion in many genres and kinds of music (rock, jazz, hip hop, classical, Afro-Cuban, Arabic, and more).

Nate has been a great drum teacher for our son. Nate's lesson plans and instruction have really helped him to improve dramatically in the time they've worked together. Responsible, professional, and kind, Nate is a great teacher for students of all ages.

Nate is a fantastic drum teacher who helped me go from basically no drumming experience in 2020 to performing with a band and all through virtual lessons. The lessons had a great mix of technique, theory, and learning songs and drum patterns and we went through a variety of musical styles. Nate was also able to tailor our lessons to my goals as a drummer and gave me excercises to stay consistent in between our lessons. I highly recommend if you’re looking for lessons that are both fun and effective!

I’ve been working with Nate for almost two years. He is an incredible drum instructor and can work with all ages and levels. I’m an adult learner with experience in drumming from my high school days and he has improved my drumming immensely. And based on the recitals he holds, I have seen the impact he has on kids and young adults learning to play for the first time. Nate is incredible at teaching the fundamentals so that you develop strong stick skills and timing. But his superpower is that he is able to break down challenging music into achievable pieces so that you can learn to play almost anything. What’s amazing about Nate is how many different styles he can play as well as different percussion instruments beyond the drum set. Whether you like jazz, rock, funk, latin, Brazilian, Nate can do it all. He’s also taught me how to play the doumbak, which is a middle eastern hand drum. Beyond Nate’s skill as teacher, he is both patient and supportive, making every lesson a great experience. I can’t recommend Nate enough to anyone who is looking for a drum instructor.

My child has had a great experience getting lessons from Nate. He is easy going and patient which are great teaching qualities, and is able to keep lessons fun too. Nate provides practice homework with each lesson, and provides occasional virtual drum shows so the kids can show off their skills, so fun! High quality drum lessons from a great teacher who is fair and kind, I would recommend lessons with Nate to anyone.
