Bryce's Teaching Style
Bryce teaches an age range of 6 years old to 70 years old, beginner to advanced, and has a great relationship with all his students. Learning an instrument should be fun and challenging. Whether you are looking to become a professional or just want to play for fun, Bryce will cater to your individual needs.

What's the point of practice if you can't play songs?!
Don’t just learn to play the drums, learn to play music! Some of Bryce's students are already in bands and are able to get playing experience. Other students don't have that opportunity. Bryce's drum lessons are unique because he is also a piano player and singer. As part of your drum lessons we will begin to learn and play real songs together and practice these songs like a band would!
What Bryce teaches
Bryce is big on technique. He believes it is very important to have a solid technique upon which to build a foundation. He attacks technical problems at the root and works his way up to eliminate deficiencies in the way his students play. He gives his students the tools to develop their own personal drumming style. Check out the side bar for a more detailed list of some of the things he covers. He teaches students ranging from very beginners to experienced professionals. Bryce has coached students to achieve superior markings in MSBOA (Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association) Solo and Ensemble competitions, and has prepared students to perform at the DTE Energy Music Theater.
