Are you tired? Stressed out? Just want some relief? Then try stimulating your mind, as well as that inner funk with the drums!
My name is Matt Clark. I play the drums, as well as any other percussion instrument. I've been a touring/session drummer for a few years now and have had the privilege to play with many great artists. I love to teach music and I specialize in drums. I can teach anybody from a beginner, at the age of 5 or 50 to a professional level. Not only will I teach many basic principles such as proper posture, grip techniques, rudiments, counting, theory, etc., but also show how the most basic groove can be turned into complex form. But that's in due time!
The many styles that I have played and can also teach from a novice to pro level include marching band rudiments, rock, heavy metal, R&B, hip-hop, pop, jazz, fusion, country, bebop, funk, afro-cuban, salsa, drum n' bass, independent and interdependent studies, stick tricks, processing and applications and many more. I can also teach many percussive instruments ranging from the djembe, conga, cajon, etc. I teach proper hand techniques, the proper way to play certain hand percussion (grip and form), and the many traditional rhythms from the instruments native lands.
I know due to the economic situation we are all in, money is hard to come by, but we all need something to keep us in a great place, whether that be sports, sewing, cooking, underwater basket weaving - the list goes on and on. My gift is music. That's what I was put here to do. I have done much research on all the music stores throughout the area and I can promise you this - I can teach you much more knowledge, at a comfortable speed, cheaper than any music store.
I also offer groove delivery service, which means if you can't make it to my house for a lesson, then I can pack up the drums and come to yours. So, if this sounds like a good idea for either you or one of your children to pick up as a new hobby, then please don't hesitate.
I look forward to helping you become a great drummer, established musician, and above all... an artist!
Peace and blessings.
