Private Lessons

modern drummer

Rodney is available for private instruction and is currently accepting a limited number of students in and around the Nashville, TN area. Lesson plans can be customized to meet your individual learning style, interests and needs... providing a fun and productive atmosphere where students can learn the concepts needed to be a successful musician.

Topics of study will include the natural approach to technique, reading, rudiments, drumset independence and performing in different musical styles and genres.

Rodney was recently recognized for teaching excellence by being included on Dom Famularo's recommended Drum Teachers List for Modern Drummer magazine.
