Whether you are a new drummer or want to improve your skills and techniques, my lessons are fun, innovative and allow you to rise to your highest potential.

I am an excellent teacher with a lot of patience, which makes me ideal for kids or anyone with no experience.

  • I teach all styles: Rock, Jazz, Funk, Classical, and more.
  • I teach the technical tools needed for drumming, such as: stick control, reading, and coordination.
  • Other covered material: keeping time, playing in different styles, playing along music, improvising, developing musical ideas, performance preparation and general musicianship.
  • My studio is in Venice, but I could also come to you.
  • My rates are very reasonable and all lessons are one-on-one.

"When I started taking drum lessons with Yotam I was 37 years old, never played any instrument before and had no musical background. Three months later I auditioned for the Boston Fire Department’s Honor Guard as a drummer and got the gig!…He is patient, encouraging and fun to study with."
