Re: FIND A DRUM TEACHER HERE

Name:
Matt Flowers

Area:
Cleveland, TN

Lesson information:
Lessons are 30 minutes long, and are $12 each.

Lesson locations:
Younger students are taught at Ocoee Middle School; older students can be taught at my home or nearby church.

Experience:
I have played drums and percussion for about 10 years. I have a broad appreciation and understanding for music, also having played piano for more than 15 years, and guitar for several years as well. I perform on a regular basis with many local bands and musicians, in a variety of settings and styles.

In high school, I played snare drum in the marching band for 4 years. I was also an All-State percussionist three times, and was blessed to play concert band and orchestral music with some of the best high school musicians in the state.

I am a recent graduate of Lee University. I have performed with many fine groups at Lee, including the wind ensemble, jazz ensemble, percussion ensemble, and orchestra, as well as other groups. I was briefly a percussion performance major when I began college, but graduated with a business degree and a minor in music.

Student level:
I most commonly teach students between elementary and high school age. However, I will certainly take adult students who are interested. My students are usually beginners, although I can also help intermediate students.

How can I help you?
I am prepared to help you meet your individual goals. Some of my students want to be better prepared for school band, and I can help these students by focusing on the snare drum and mallet instruments. I can also help students prepare for junior or senior clinic auditions, or help students get ready for marching band drum techniques.

The majority of my students have been primarily interested in learning to play the drum set. This is also my own biggest focus, and is what I enjoy playing and teaching the most. I can help you gain the skills you need to play whatever music you most enjoy, or prepare you to play in your church, school jazz band, or anything else.

Please call me at 715-4457, or email me at matt@mattflowersmusic.com. Also for more information, check out my website at www.mattflowersmusic.com.

Hello there!

A short introduction to begin:

My name is Steven Parent and I am currently teaching drums at my home in Prescott. I have been an avid drummer for 7 years, being a part of many great bands in the area, pursuing studies across all different genres and styles, and incorporating a whole slew of differing techniques and aspects of drumming into my daily routine. I do whatever I can on a daily basis to better myself as a drummer and an educator.

I am now offering drum lessons for a limited number of beginner to advanced students who will be taught in my practice room at home, where we will cover a wide variety of concepts, techniques, and other vital hands-on knowledge. I uniquely shape each lesson to your previous experience, learning style and which direction you wish to move in( if any, that may be the reason you're seeking drum lessons!).

Some of what we may cover, but definitely not limited to:
- Proper matched grip technique, to maximize comfort and minimize injury potential
- Imperative universal music knowledge I feel all drummers should know involving song structure and time signatures(Odd time signatures too)
- Reading music, learning drum notation, and important rudiments
- How to shape yourself into a versatile drummer, being desirable to different musical situations, tips to make those musical encounters go smoothly, and gigging do's and don'ts!
- Hands on advice on many different drumming techniques, including building hand speed, double bassing, playing different rhythmic structures, utilizing the drum set in varying ways, maximizing functionality and creativity in the process, structuring drum parts, and much much more
- If desired, advice on Drum, Cymbal, Head, Stick, and Equipment selection


So, if you want to take your rhythmic understanding to the next level or if this sounds like it appeals to you regardless of skill level, don't hesitate to contact me! Any questions, concerns, more information? Give me a ring!

Not a teacher but looking for one in South-East Melbourne that teaches more traditional drum technique, particularly jazz, most of the teachers I have found in the area only specialize in rock/pop
