My name is Steven Cornacchia, and i'm a professional drummer here in Charlotte, looking for students who are willing to learn. Why choose me over other potential drum instructors? For one, I am a currently gigging/recording artist in Charlotte, with 10+ years of experience playing in rock, funk, jazz, blues, jam, and latin bands. On top of teaching these genres, I teach the fundamentals of playing the kit on your own or in bands, stick control, rudiments, how to tune the drums, and limb independence. Most importantly, music is about learning to have fun and express yourself.
I have had the privilege to learn under legendary drum instructors such as Quentin Baxter and Jeff Salisbury. I've taught drums to all ages and levels of experience, from pre-school aged kids first touching drums, to teenagers, to young adults at the intermediate level. I'm currently 25 years old, so I feel my teaching style works best with younger kids and young adults.
As for rates, I typically charge $20 for a 30 minute lesson, and $30 for an hour lesson. I always encourage the hour long lessons, but 30 minutes is great for a beginner. The only requirement for you is a drum set in your house. My schedule is flexible, so i'm able to drive out to you even if you're within 30-45 minutes of the Charlotte area. Drums are my passion, and I hope to pass that passion unto my students.
