About Alan

Thank you for finding my drum lesson page. You will find a very experienced instructor who has taught all levels: elementary, intermediate, high school and college. Many of my students have become 1st chair percussionists.

I have taught in the Prince William County School System working with the marching drum-line. Spent many years teaching styles of Concert, Rudimental, Jazz, Rock, Latin, Funk, Fusion, etc on drumset in many area music stores and now independently. The methods I teach from are tried and true: Stick Control, Syncopation, Advanced Techniques, Rockin' Bass Drum, Realistic Rock to name a few. (They all get great results!)

My education in music through college gave me a strong foundation and the work I did in the United States Air Force Band program further developed those skills. Currently I perform freelance and of course teach which help to keep me current with what is going on in music these days. I have been teaching for over 25 years and have many students pursue music as their profession.

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.

Drums

I studied extensively in drums and percussion both in college and privately, receiving an Associate in Arts Degree from Suffolk County Community College Long Island, New York and United States Air Force Band Careerfield at Scott AFB, Illinois and March AFB, California. I have performed with many famous musicians and on television. I have been teaching Drums/Percussion since 1987 (independently 1994).
