Default Charleston, SC Drum Teacher

It's time for a move. Looking for a teacher in Charleston SC. I had a great teacher in Seattle, guy brought me from zero to proficient in a two years. He loved every genre, very positive guy. I had a great teacher in Columbia too but schedules conflicted.

I am moving to Charleston after I retire from the military and I can devote time and energy to learning drums again.

Does anybody know of perspective teachers in the Charleston, Mount Pleasant area of Charleston? I figure it is better to ask here first and check Craigslist second.

FWIW, to me, finding a teacher that's compatible is harder than it sounds. Like being new all over again. Good for ego deflation though.

Cheers and thanks,

John

Hi John,
I know a few people in the Charleston/Mt Pleasant area that might could get you going there.

I'll actually be in Columbia at Simms Music performing a clinic on Sept 13th....I think a few guys from Charleston are going to come up.......if you can make it, I'll introduce you to them.

In the mean time...I'll look through my address book and see who I got in there from the area.

It may take me a couple of weeks but, hit me back here (if I don't see you Cola) and we'll make it happen.

Cheers,
D

Quentin Baxter is as sick a drummer as they come. He has played with Eddie Henderson & Donald Byrd just to mention a few;) Here is some footage of his snazzy work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VM7_T98MHs

You can contact him (via Phone) using the college directory here: http://music.cofc.edu/about/faculty-and-staff-listing/ *He is under adjunct faculty. He has a website too w/ email info: http://baxtermusic.com/ It's worth visting for just the music!!

And Quention's bio:
