& why they love my drum lessons

'I started taking lessons from Gregg about two years ago. I’ve learned more and played better than I ever thought was possible at this time. Gregg is a very patient teacher and uses a variety of materials in his lessons. I was, at first, intimidated by all I didn’t know, but the Drumsense program presents drumming in a very logical, step-by-step manner. I’m glad I met Gregg first when I decided to give drumming a try.'


'My son has been taking drum lesson from Gregg for 4.5 years. Not only is my son the 1st chair percussion in his Middle School Advanced Band and also the Jazz Band but he made The 2013 Middle School Volusia All-County Band. None of this would have been possible without taking lessons from Gregg!'

'My son started taking lessons with Mr Eckerson over the summer of 2012 in preparation for the 6th-grade band. His experience with his band teacher was, for lack of better words, horrible. Mr Eckerson made sure that Jake's confidence wasn't shattered and that his desire to learn was still intact. Jake is still getting lessons and is loving learning his craft.'

About Your New
Drum Lessons Teacher

I am experienced and easy going. I am ready to help you reach your drum goals.

I have over 55 years experience as a drummer, starting at the age of 14. I have played in many bands and in 2005 I started up the Daytona chapter of "Drummers for Jesus" which I still lead to this day.

Due to my extensive experience, I am able to fluently cover a range of genres and styles including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country and Latin. No genre is too much of a challenge for us to learn.

I start taking on students from the age of 5, while this is a young age, it's a great age to start drumming. Children are wonderful learners and I believe you're never too young to rock.

Along with my experience, I am also a very flexible and friendly teacher. I want to see you achieve all of your goals and I will work tirelessly with you to ensure that you do in a teaching environment that pushes you to your best without causing you pressure.
