Drum Teacher - Liam O

I have been playing drums, and other various forms of percussion for over 15 years. I am an active performer, educator, and studio musician. I have spent the last 8 years working as a professional drummer in the LA and SF Bay area. This has allowed me to travel the world to work with many talented artists, as well as continuing my life-long study of the drums. I am crazy about music and find much fulfillment in passing on my knowledge and passion for it. I believe a fun, exciting approach is the best way to succeed!

Best Drum Teacher - Marr T
Best Drum TeacherSan Francisco, CA

My motto with music is if you aren't having fun, you're doing something wrong. I have been drumming for over 15 years, and teaching for many of those as well. I play up and down the west coast with my band Daytime Nightlife, who just released our debut album, on which I drummed, played percussion, and co-produced. Let's have some fun learning about music together.

Guitar Instructor - Ruben Q
Guitar InstructorOakland, CA

"I have been interested in music for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a house where both parents were musicians led me to take guitar lessons in my teens. Next came learning drums and that led to being in many different bands, playing shows, recording music, studying music in college, and eventually teaching. I have been happy to share my musical knowledge with my students and nurture their growth as players and songwriters. Anyone can learn a new instrument or build up their skills and I am here to help them however they need it."

Drum and Percussion Lessons - John H
Drum and Percussion LessonsSan Francisco, CA

I am a local working musician whose passion for performance is only matched by my love of teaching. I have 27 years of performing, on stage and in-studio, collaborating with many exciting musicians across the Pacific rim, west coast and southwest. I bring my craft and inspiration to the joy of teaching the next generation of musicians and inspiring the emerging talent of every age and walk of life. I was raised in Washington State where I studied Percussion Performance at Washington State University as a performing arts scholarship recipient. During this time I was hired as second/first chair percussion in the Washington Idaho Symphony, my first professional position, and spent the next three years there while I attended school. During my tenure in Seattle, I was hired to share the stage with a wide variety of bands, songwriters, pop orchestras and musical theater productions. The Bay area has offered a range of creative projects, on and off stage, varying from extended theatre runs to intimate cabarets, rock and roll gigs and as a guest artist with special performance projects. Studio recording is frequent, as is touring. Information can be found at my website: www.rhythmalchemy.net
