I currently have openings in my private drum studio here in Davenport. Both my wife (Crystal) and I teach out of our home privately during the week, and we're located behind Gilda's Club in Davenport off of River Drive.
I haven't sent an e-mail out like this in over two years because my schedule has been full, but now I have a few spots open for students looking for a private drum instructor. Here's what I offer in my studio:
*Snare Drum Technique / Rudiments / Studies / Solos
*Mallet Technique / Scales / Studies / Solos
*Timpani Technique and Studies / Solos
*Auxillary Percussion Techniques
*Drumset Studies and Styles (Rock, Latin, Jazz, Brush Technique)
*Drumset Solos and Proper Techniques
*Play-a-long with music students bring to lessons or I have in my library
*All the above will involve reading, playing and writing actual music
*Basic knowledge of Music Theory
My rate is one of the best rates in the Quad Cities for private lessons. Most monthly half-hour lessons go for $80 a month, but here is what I charge for a month:
(4) One-hour private lessons = $110 per month flat fee
The normal rate for hour lessons is $160 per month, so my rate is considerably less than the normal rate. I can teach one or all of the above items during the lesson. This will give the parents, students and teacher something to choose from for lesson options. I'm able to meet with the student for a total of 4 hours a month, compared to 2 hours with 30 minute lessons a month. The hour lessons have shown quicker development in the overall skills with each of my students.
Teaching and performing music is a passion of mine, and this shows through my students too with high ratings during solo contests, plus district and state honors for my students too. The students pick up on my drive to perform and teach, and this motivates them to exceed any goal they have set for themselves musically.
If you know any student or parent interested in starting percussion or drum lessons, please forward my information on to them. I can be contacted through e-mail (
) or phone ((563) 823-0174) the best. The spots normally fill up fast when I send these e-mails out, so please inform whomever is interested to act quickly because spots are first-come first-serve. If there are any questions, please call me so we can discuss them and get them answered right away.
Most Sincerely Yours,
