About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I provide a high level of drum lessons for individuals of all ages who desire to learn how to play drums extremely well. I am a highly energetic, expressive, dynamically explosive drummer in my live performances. I am a lead singing drummer, thus my drumming takes on a whole additional level that compares to none. 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.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

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 that I can provide.

    He can play, and he can teach!
    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.

    I've known Russell for 30 years! He is the perfect instructor with amazing skills, technique and knowledge for every style and level of drumming. Do it, you'll be glad you did! Really.

    I've been taking lessons from Russell for five months. I had a little experience as a teenager making noise after some instruction. That was 35 years ago, I'm now 51 and he has brought what little I had inside of me back out. In just this time, Russell calls me an advanced drummer. I can't say enough about how I look forward to my weekly session. It's not a "lesson", it's really a good time.

    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.

    An excellent teacher. Very patient and flexible with my crazy schedule. He is supportive of me during the lessons but continually offers constructive criticism to make sure I improve. Couldn't ask for a better teacher!

    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.

    Russell Sharp is incredible! I had an amazing time not just learning from him but sharing music ideas. He's an amazing person to be around because he wants you to get better and of course have fun, he's not a mechanical ad boring to be around like some teachers are. He has become one of my best friends.

    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.
