Drum Lessons

drum lessons - Tido Holtkamp

Teaching drums gives me the chance to share the gift of music with my students and to pass along what I have learned about the great tradition of drumming.  My teaching goals are to make lessons fun, inspire my students, and to see them improve their abilities and have success playing music.

My blog page is where I like to write about music, philosophy and life.  Here, you can read my musings on my favorite music, the state of the music business, music education, and my thoughts on important drummers and drumming history.  I also host an ongoing discussion on drumming & health called "Drumming in Harmony."
