Re: FIND A DRUM TEACHER HERE

NAME

Andrew McAuley

COVERAGE AREA

Long Island/New York City

VENUE (WILL TEACH AT PUPIL'S HOME or HAS A TEACHING STUDIO or BOTH)

I offer lessons out of my drum room in Long Beach, NY and I will also travel to students located in Manhattan. I also fly once a month to the Palm Beach Springs area in Florida to teach privately, so if you live in the area I can meet with you as well.

I also offer private lessons online using the Skype program for students that I cannot travel to personally.

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

I have been playing for fifteen years and teaching for almost ten. I have studied with the late Al Miller, completed studies at the world renowned Drummers Collective in NYC, and I currently study and perform with Billy Martin (of Medeski Martin & Wood) and master percussionist Cyro Baptista (of Beat The Donkey, Sting, Paul Simon, and more).

STUDENT LEVEL (BEGINNERS or SPECIALIST FOR ADVANCED DRUMMERS - PLEASE SPECIFY)

I accept students of all levels, beginner to advanced. Lessons can cover any and everything, including but not limited to: reading, counting, almost all styles of music, independence, phrasing, soloing, playing musically, developing your own voice on the instrument, creating themes, and more!

LESSON DETAILS (length and price)

For private lessons held out of my drum room, the rates are $30 for thirty minutes and $50 for one hour.

For lessons in NYC, rates are $75 for one hour (due to transportation fees)

When flying out of state for intensive lessons, rates are $75 per hour plus hotel fees.

For private lessons online using Skype, read the following:

The first step is to send me your musical background, an example or two of your playing, and what you want to achieve in our lesson. This way I can have several ideas prepared for our session. From there, STUDENTS HAVE TWO OPTIONS:

SINGLE SESSION: you can schedule one custom tailored thirty minute session for $25, which the student will receive a video of as well.

MONTHLY PLAN: you can schedule 4 lessons a month for a total of just $80. On top of the four live sessions, this plan entails me creating a flexible curriculum for the student, which they will receive via a pdf file or word document, and video recordings of each live session·

PAYPAL AND MONEY ORDERS ACCEPTED


OTHER RELEVANT DETAILS

I also teach a multitude of exotic percussion instruments, including: surdo, pandeiro, cuica, triangle, ago-go bells, timba, and more!
