Introduction: Hi! My name is Johnny and I’ve been teaching music lessons for 10 years now. I’m a multi-instrumentalist who specializes in drums, guitar, keys, and vocals. I’ve also taught lessons for bass and ukulele as well. I come from a musical family and have been around music all my life. Music is truly a passion for me and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and guiding students on their own musical journey. I have 9 years of teaching experience through School of Rock Charlotte and over 15 years as a gigging musician, playing with some of Charlotte’s greatest legends. I’m available to teach all styles of music for drums, guitar, and keys, as well as music theory and songwriting. I’m also available for freelance drumming and solo acoustic performance. Currently I’m only doing remote lessons. Feel free to message me for information on pricing and details. I’d love to work with you!

If we could give Johnny more than 5 stars, we would! He has been such an amazing and informative teacher. His love and appreciation for music makes learning from him so special. Me and my best friend are taking lessons back to back and he has been so accommodating with our schedules. We appreciate everything he does to make learning so easy and fun at the same time. In under two months we’ve learned way beyond our own expectations and it’s all thanks to Johnny. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to learn drums no matter their age!

Jonny is a dedicated, professional and fun to learn from. My son is taking online lessons from him, even being online it’s easy to understand and he pays attention to the details. After Johnny’s classes he has become more invested to the drums, not to mention the massive improvement with drums

Johnny is an excellent instructor. I appreciate his patience with beginner questions, and he is fantastic about suggesting ways to improve beyond a beginner level. He does a great job of meeting the student where they are to best serve their needs. Such a pleasant demeanor in the lesson, too! Would absolutely recommend.

FAQs

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

    I offer 45 minute lessons for ($50) and 30 minute lessons for ($40). Most of my students have 1 lesson a week and pay monthly. I also offer a 20% discount on their first month.

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

    When working with a new student I like to start with few questions to learn a little bit about their musical history and what inspires them. I usually ask them how long have they’ve been playing, if they have had ever lessons before, and what kind of music or artists they like. I also like to have students play something for me so I can see their style and where their skill level is. These things help me provide a learning path for the student.

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

    I attended Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC for an associates degree in music. There I studied piano, music theory, and also achieved an education in Jazz performance. Around the same time I studied privately with one of Charlotte’s greatest drummers for many years. I’ve also gained a lot of experience through teaching, which I’ve been doing for 10 years now. Ultimately, all of these things contribute to my ability to teach multiple instruments and various skill levels.
