Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: -Students get to learn at home, at their own pace, & with their own equipment. This makes it easier for parents as well who have busy schedules. My lesson curriculum is vast, and contains more diverse content than even the most prestigious music schools in the world. I always keep an open mind and embrace each student's individuality. -Teaching others, in a positive way, about drumming that will enhance their lives. Striving to make every student reach their goals & realize their potential. -Lessons are available in-person (average 40 mile radius around Pittsburgh, PA) as well as virtual (FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, and all Google Apps).

Seriously enjoy the lessons so far Seems to be tailoring the curriculum to what my goals are Dug right in to the drum kit PLAYING I’m a older adult (50) student who’s new at this but don’t have time to learn like I’m 10 Also like the Hour lesson and the every other week so I have more time to absorb things Also responded quickly to any questions

My first lesson was fantastic. Chris really took the time to listen to what I was looking for, and designed a program tailored to fit my needs. I am very much looking forward to my future lessons!

Chris has been awesome with my daughter and she is really enjoying her lessons. She's excited to play more and more and is happy with what she's learning. Her confidence has improved too.

FAQs

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have taught students ranging in ages from 2 1/2 all the way to 72 years old! It's never too early or late to start drumming. A curriculum is customized for each student!

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    My first official instructional DVD w/ Ebook package, "Drumming for the Young and the Young at Heart" was released August 15th, 2017. Since then it’s been selling great and receiving excellent reviews! Recorded over a two year period during my free time, which has been very limited the last few years! It was designed for beginners but contains content that is a great refresher for more experienced players as well. The content in the DVD as well as the eBook is included in my lesson curriculum. This package barely scratches the surface of what is in my curriculum, but it lays out a foundation that every drummer needs to build upon.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    It's important to find a teacher who always keeps your goals in constant focus, but one who knows what to instruct and when to show it, so you can achieve your aspirations in the most efficient way possible. A teacher who's been there with challenges, and knows how to overcome them. A teacher who will open your ideas to techniques, rhythms, and philosophies that will give you the opportunity to have a lifetime of rapid progress, and great times, with your drumming.
