    John Caldwell is an excellent teacher, he's fun but also pushes your child to learn the fundamentals which are invaluable! My son really thinks John is cool but he'll listen to him too. Don't hesitate to contact John for lessons, he's awesome and totally worth it!

    John has taught both my sons drum lessons! Today I had my first lesson and I have been excited since I left. He not only is great at his job, but you leave with a sense of pride. I didn't think I could do it, but he made it so easy for me to learn a beat. He also is a great role model to my children. If anyone of any age is looking to learn a new skill I would start with him!!!

About this pro

The Music Academy Asheville is a great place to learn drums! Students that excel are asked to audition for the Rock Academy, a student band that performs at the Orange Peel yearly, as well as other local venues. It's a great place to network with other players. We also use great equipment, and have super fun group clinics regularly! I love the stories of how much fun my students had as they played out live! I also love seeing the joy on student's faces as they perform a beat or piece that they once thought difficult. I also enjoy interacting with my students and sharing music we enjoy. My job is awesome!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My rate is 105 monthly for a half hour weekly lesson.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      All new students need is a folder and some drumsticks. We will get started right away on some fun drumming exercises and tunes!
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I've played in many working bands, church bands, jazz groups, even a metal band! I think that experience playing gigs out is very important to a drum instructor. I've also studied under Byron Hedgepeth and Lynn Glassock, who are amazing teachers.
