Drum Lesson Studio in Sudbury

Justin is available for private instruction on Drum Set, Mallets, and Percussion at his studio in Sudbury, MA. He enjoys teaching the young beginner, the adult picking it up for the first time or looking to sharpen up their skills, as well as the serious student with high aspirations.  He has helped many students pass auditions for Districts, All State, New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, UMass and others.  What ever your interest in drumming happens to be, Justin enjoys helping you achieve your goals.  

Students are often encouraged to select songs that they would like to learn.  This builds a direct connection to the instrument and techniques used during the lessons with a real musically creative situation.  Students that are learning songs they choose are more likely to practice and continue playing year after year as they become the drummer they want to be.  

Styles of expertise include Rock, Jazz, Latin, R&B/Soul, Funk, with emphasis on time, groove playing, sight reading, rudiments and technique, solo construction and improvisation, inter-dependence, and song form.

Lessons are available in 30 min., 45 min., and 60 min. time slots to suit the needs and schedules of the student. All ability levels accepted, ages 6 to adult.

Justin brings a calm, patient, easy-going demeanor to his lessons, creating a fun and exciting learning environment. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to each lesson. He uses the many books, videos, transcriptions and recordings he has accumulated over his career to bolster the learning experience.

Student Spotlight

Emilia has been playing for a little over a year now.  In this video, she's rockin' Muse's Map of the Problematique.  Not an easy song at all.  But like pretty much everything I've given her, she nails it in no time.  Its always great to have a student like that... and great to have a girl rockin' on drums!

My 7 year old student rocks out to some Nirvana with his band at a local performance.  He's so much fun to teach.  Its been great to watch him grow so much in such a short time.
