About Lars

Hi! I'm Lars! Let's play drums! Let my 35 years of musical experience work for you! I teach rudiments, all the way to advance playing. But more importantly, You'll have fun learning skills you'll use and enjoy your whole life! I'll teach you serious musical principles and fundamentals in a fun and relaxed environment.

My experience? I studied several years under Walter Garces, who is a well-known Los Angeles instructor and session musician. I also completed all applicable percussion courses at Santa Monica College. I've played in a series of local bands. I am very experienced with rock, jazz, and Latin styles. I am constantly teaching myself new rhythms and styles.

I've been teaching drums (also ukulele or guitar) part-time for several years, and am now making the jump to a full-time music instructor. A typical lesson with me might start with some wrist warm ups on drum pads. We'll discuss and evaluate progress and student ergonomics (i.e. stick grip, etc). I'll introduce a new concept to the student. Then onto the drum kit! We'll review past lessons and introduce a new concept (for example, the bossa nova).

Here's what sets me apart from other teachers: As I am accomplished on the guitar (and other instruments), we'll play music of your choice (or my choice, if you prefer). The student provides the musical request, and I arrange the song so it is playable with just the 2 of us. It's real experience learning how to play in a band. My students consistently say its the most fun and valuable part of the lesson.
