Austin Drum Lessons with Kirk
About this pro
Beginner, intermediate and advanced students are welcome. I have a studio in South Austin. Since the age of 15, I have been performing. I have played in rock, jazz, pop, Zydeco, cover, funk and experimental projects. As a top drummer for hire in town, I'm the guy you call on short notice when your drummer can't make it for some reason or quits. I also play in a classic rock band and in a variety band. I have extensive stage experience as well as studio experience. I am specifically interested in students who are prepared to take their abilities and stage dynamics to the next level. I teach from the perspective that some musicians have a lot to say (dynamics and phrasing) and some musicians have a large vocabulary (many chops). We will work on what you have to express and say and how to say it through the most passionate and powerful of instruments. Also, I have worked for a Fortune 500 company and have been in the business world for numerous years as a headhunter and consultant. You can rely on a conscientious and professional experience. I also have numerous years of experience as an adult educator and a coach. Rates are $35 per hour at my studio near Riverside Dr. and Pleasant Valley. I love drums, and I love teaching. Call me! Let's set your free first lesson.
