Fall is here and the Jon Miller Drum Studio is now accepting new students for private lessons. First lesson is free, and lessons are available for all levels and styles at my Victoria BC studio.
At my studio students play on acoustic drums with practise material precisely geared to the their interests and level (beginners too!). For advanced students Alan Dawson's four limb independence and rudimental material offers many opportunities to further "level up." I am a former student of Mr Dawson who taught many world-renowned drummers including Steve Smith, Marvin "Smitty" Smith, Terri Lyne Carrington and Tony Williams. More information under the Lessons/Instruction tab above.
Check out my Youtube drum lesson videos! Ranging in level from beginner to advanced, the latest instalment the Drag Tap Chronicles is now up! Look for the next in the Not-a-Rudimental-Drummer series in the fall.
