More About Drum Lessons

One Example Teaching Approach

“I’ve been teaching privately for 5 years, and in that time have found that the best way to maximize each student’s success is to focus on the material that is most interesting to them. Beginning students can learn their favorite songs, while getting a basic foundation in rudiments and syncopation, while advanced students can structure the lesson in a way they would find the most beneficial to their playing style and interests. I am happy to recommend books, music and DVDs relevant to your interests!”

    My son really wanted drum lessons and we found a great teacher with The Music Teachers Network. He comes to the house each week and we're seeing some real progress.

    Learning how to drum was not as easy as I thought - but I'm finally seeing some improvement.
    - Hazel P., AZ


    Great teacher!! Kudos - we finally found the right one!
    - Audrey B., CA


    Our drum teachers kept on quitting on us and we discovered it was because they weren't making enough money - even though we paid the going rate. Once we found the Music Teachers Network, we hired Vincent directly, and he's been with us for over a year. He keeps what we pay him and finally we are done searching.

What Happens In Lessons?

  • Melissa did very well paying attention and learning new things this week. In her lesson, we worked through several pages of music theory, learned the right hand to part B of Fur Elise, worked on playing legato through a tricky section of Little Playmates, and practiced the first part of Chant Arabe. We also practiced transposing music. Melissa successfully played through Little Playmates in the keys of C, G, F, and D. She even figured out part of it in the key of G flat. Very impressive, Melissa! Great job. :-)

  • Courtney got her new books today. Before we went on to the new ones I talked to her about how to analyze chord structures. She did well with this concept and it helped give her an idea of how to play Novela. Courtney did some review theory in the new book too. This week Courtney should practice Rage Over A Lost Penny and Glad Cat Rag.

  • Heidi and I reviewed the G major linear scale and did it in thirds. We then went over the G major triads and 7th chords. We finished by learning the A section to "Michele".

  • We worked on the C Major scales, and I introduced her to the arpeggio, its fingerings. I assigned her the C Major scale in 4 8ves and the arpeggios in 3 8ves. After that, we moved onto the Chopin, which is getting better. We worked on dynamics, and how to make the piece make sense, trying to portray a story behind it to give it meaning. That made her more excited to play the piece, rather than just playing it. Afterwards we moved on to the Bach, which she's doing well at. It's uneven in some spaces, but overall it's good. To fix the unevenness, I'm having her play the piece in different rhythms, with emphasis on various parts of the beat.

  • Amanda and I reviewed our scales. We then learned the Bb pentatonic and compared it to the C# (Db) pentatonic scale. After learning these we improvised over the changes to "Blue Monk" and learned the first 6 bars of the head.

  • Claudia and I made some great progress in sight reading and scales today. I assigned the 1-7 C scale, hands together, and p. 51 and 52 in the Faber.

    Madeline and I really stressed rhythm and note values in her new songs, and again in Snake Charmer. Assigned are Snake Charmer (speed and precision) and p. 4 and 5. We will begin Hanon exercises next week.

  • Calista is doing great! She is making fantastic progress in her note reading. She is working on reading by looking at all the notes this week. Lexie is doing great as well with learning the Bass Clef C position notes. Jackson is awesome at sight reading. He is working on 5th intervals this week. Lucas is persistent with his counting! He is working on adding in dynamics and holding his rests while still counting their value.
