Hi, my name is Steve Schoen. I have been teaching drums for (5 years), playing (35 years and professionally for 11 years) and building drum kits (5 years).
I have a degree in music from U.M.A. I am everything drums. I can teach rock, metal, blues and even jazz, pretty much everything but "orchestral" music. I also read drum charts and can teach drum notation.
This is the deal, if youre serious about playing, you already have drums at your residence or have access to a drum kit, I come to where your drums are -- no driving to music stores, schools etc. and waiting around for you or your parents.
I give four 45-minute lessons a month (same day and same time every week) for $60.00. You will find that this is under the norm for any private music lessons. If I have to drive more then 10 miles both ways, there will be an additional charge for gas, but not for my time. My car gets 30 mpg.
The first time is not a lesson per se but a meet-and-greet sort of thing that shows if I can help you with your drumming needs. The cost is $5.00.
