Drum Lessons in Forestville, CA

Teaching to me is just as rewarding as performing and sometimes even more rewarding.  Over the past 20 years of teaching, I've been slowly developing my approach to teaching as much as my approach to playing the drums.  What makes a good teacher is not only their competence with their craft, but their effectiveness of relaying their expertise to the student in a way which is clear and will actually produce results.  I cannot stress how much time can be LOST in the practice room to material that has no actual real world application, unfocused practice, or sometimes students not being completely honest with their self about how "Good" the thing they are working on has gotten.

 I have taken countless drum lessons throughout my time on the instrument and am always looking to take my personal drumming to the next level as well as find ways to help the people I am teaching to get there as well.  Through me custom curriculum I have developed, I have no doubt you can get the the next level quicker than you think.   

All ages and skill levels welcome!
You can waste a lot of time practicing the wrong way, and practicing things that are not practical.  By taking lessons from Matt, you will able to:
       *Get started the right way
       * Correct BAD habits
       * Lean how to take your drumming to the next level
       * Learn HOW to practice efficiently 
       * Learn WHAT to practice
You can advance on the drums much quicker if you learn how to stop wasting your time in the practice room and practice the right things efficiently.  
Please contact me with any questions regarding lessons!
