About Andrew

I have been a drum teacher for twenty years, and have enjoyed watching my students become proficient at this historical and challenging instrument. Teaching the drums comes naturally, as I have gathered much experience on the stage and in the recording studio. I presently teach from my studio in The Drum Academy on Platte Ave. in Colorado Springs. I also play with two local groups. I offer instruction along the lines of the student's personal curiosity and desire, as well as a structured course for advancement in a very comfortable, professional atmosphere, with access to numerous instructors of different styles. Come visit sometime. I have been a drum teacher for twenty years, and have enjoyed watching my students become proficient at this historical and challenging instrument.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I have self-produced three albums of original music and arranged music for several bands. I can write songs on guitar or keyboard.

Drums

I have been playing drums, live and in the recording studio, for 25 years. I have 11 album credits, and I am associated with a few Berklee College graduates in different projects. Presently, I play in Almost Eden (progressive metal) and Better Than Tim (ska-flavored punk). I attend open mikes regularly and teach at The Drum Academy, where I have a nice studio with elecronic and acoustic drums.

Ear Training

I use the piano to define pitch with singing. I also teach listening methods such as acousmatics and the definition of objects in an aural landscape.
