“Simon is very insightful, and addresses your strengths and weaknesses quickly”.
Margaret Lewis – Los Angeles, CA
Drum lessons in San Diego are conducted from my fully equipped studio in Rancho Penasquitos. With easy access from the i15, i5 and CA56, the studio is within 30 minutes of most areas of San Diego County. Lessons are always on an individual “one to one” basis, and never in groups or class room styles. All lessons are individually tailored towards the student’s area of interest, level, and objectives.
Drum lessons are one hour in duration, and prices have been competitively set based on other service providers in the area. Productive and beneficial lessons require one hour to allow for warm-up, review, new topics, questions and answers. Your personal progression on the drum set will depend on how often you take drum lessons, and your practice time in between sessions.
The drum classes are completely tailored to your requirements, and can include, but are not limited to: music notation, drum set rudiments, sticking patterns, different music styles, drum-set familiarization, practice techniques, grip/stick technique, and most importantly, how to become a musical drummer, and develop your own individual style. During our sessions, we will also play along to backing tracks, songs of your choosing, click tracks (metronomes), and above all, our time together will be fun, as well as educational.
The studio is equipped with a Roland TD20K drum-set, a Roland PM3 powered monitor, and Yamaha digital piano with Roland powered amplifier.
