Private instruction is the best way to get the attention you need to become a great drummer. Music is my passion and I want to show you how much fun drums can be. I began studying music in 4th grade and was drumming professionally in high school. My career as an educator started a few years later and I’ve been recording, performing, and teaching ever since.
“I am so glad that we found Ryan. Our son plays the drums so nicely. He is also doing very well in his middle school band class and he is well prepared for high school band. Ryan is so patient and fun ~ your drum lessons will be very thorough.” - Kim Mech (parent of student)
Lessons are held at Broadway Music School in Denver. During your studies, we will work on improving your rhythm and coordination as well as helping you become a more complete musician. You’ll have the chance to play on real drums – not a set covered with rubber pads (very important for developing dynamics and tone). Furthermore, every lesson is customized to help you set and achieve realistic goals while having fun and being creative in the process.
“Ryan Elwood teaches, inspires, and motivates my son to want to play the drums with more effort and feeling. He is always prompt, courteous, and teaches from the heart.” – Sara Stump (parent of student)
