My son has been taking drum lessons with Ms. Peggy for several years and we are extremely happy with his progress and confidence. She has a unique way of breaking down concepts and explaining new strategies. She always pushes him to higher levels by challenging him with new goals. He felt very prepared for Symphonic Band as a high school Freshman, earning the Rookie of the Year Award. In addition, he was accepted into the esteemed Wind Ensemble Band for his Sophomore Year. He attributes these successes to Ms. Peggy’s knowledgeable, thorough instruction and direction. We highly recommend PEGDRUMS for drum lessons.Jul 3, 2020
My son has been taking lessons from Peggy for several years. She is an excellent, enthusiastic and very patient teacher. When the pandemic hit, she quickly adapted the lessons to be remote learning through video conferencing. She provides a written weekly (pdf) list of what my son should be practicing that week with helpful notes. She’s a great teacher and I definitely recommend her. I am so happy with my son’s progress!Jun 12, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For in-person lessons, remote lessons, or a mix of the two, the price is $25 per half-hour, or $50 per hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For school-age students, I talk to the parent(s) to get some background, including age/grade, experience playing drums (if any), equipment, and what goals they have in mind for their child. It’s also important to understand the student's tendencies (are they disciplined, is this a 'test-the-waters' type thing, etc.). For adult students, basically the same as above. I get background about their experience playing drums (if any), what equipment they have, what goals they have in mind, and their tendencies.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been playing drums since 5th grade: concert bands, jazz bands, marching band, theater pit, etc. I was not a music major in college but took music track classes & participated in ensembles, lessons, performances. I decided to 'turn pro' after my drumming workload was more than my day job. Right now I am the typical working drummer: teaching lessons, playing in the pit for theater shows, in-school performances, and playing gigs with a variety of groups (jazz combos, big bands, rock bands, etc.).
