 Drum Lessons featuring Independence, Control, Finesse, and Power.

Some consider Drumming an art form, and some don’t. I do, with the independence and control needed to perform a soft drum lick and come right back and nail a loud power fill to drive the music forward. Yes, it’s an art.

Want to learn techniques to perform in any setting? Want to have the finesse to play jazz and the raw power for hardcore rock and everything in between? I will teach you techniques to play any job.

 I am a professional drummer with a B.A. in Music teaching drum set in Washington, DC. Lessons are Forty dollars ($40.00) an hour and Thirty dollars ($30.00) per half hour (30 min.). Lessons are given in the drum studio between 4pm and 7pm Monday thru Thursday and 10:00am to 6pm on Saturdays. Interested students may contact me at (202) 257-1064, or at the e-mail address below for more information.

Good Drumming,

Richard Seals
