Drum Lessons


I love to share my lifelong passion for music, especially drumming, with my students.

I’ve had some wonderful teachers and there is no greater joy than passing along to my students what I’ve learned from them and from my own unique experiences.

Some of my great drum teachers: Jerry Granelli, Sam Ulano, Joe Morello, Bob Moses, Marvin “Smitty” Smith, Mike Clark, Elaine Watts, David Licht, Victor Lewis. Education is never finished – I’m constantly learning. I learn from my students all the time, from my children.

I try to balance serious fun with established and rigorous pedagogy.

Many of my former students are now professional musicians and teachers themselves.

Patient, Knowledgeable, Experienced, Kind, Fun

Here are some testimonials from students:

“Aaron’s teaching a is a rare and valuable gift.  He is highly skilled and knowledgeable in many styles of music and also has that generosity, patience and lightheartedness so important to guiding and encouraging others.  A world class musician and a world class teacher!”     Guy Schalom, London

 “Aaron Alexander is knowledgeable and experienced as a musician, a kind and patient teacher, with a great sense of humour to boot.”     Lorie Wolf, Toronto

 “I grew so much during my lessons with Aaron; he worked on whatever I needed from technique and independence to exploring different styles. Aaron’s teaching and camaraderie prepared me for a number of gigs I got during my study, from a traditional Jewish wedding to a tour with a brass band from NOLA. I could not recommend Aaron more strongly as a teacher.”       Chris Schroth, New York
