My name is Nathan Read. I'm a Berklee College Of Music Alumni teaching private drum lessons out of my home in Reston, VA. I'm looking for new students!
I've been playing drum set for 28 years and teaching drum lessons for 12 years. I teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, and specially tailor each lesson towards your individual goals. That way we are working on exactly what will benefit you the most!
I'm fluent at playing and teaching songs and concepts in these styles!

I've shared the stage with people such as : Shania Twain (on tour at the MCI Center in 1999), Luke Brindley (co-owner of Jammin' Java and Union Stage), Jon Carroll (Starland Vocal Band, Linda Ronstadt), Owen Danoff (The Voice team Adam Levine), Native Run and many others!
--------I charge $50 for a one-hour lesson at my home in Reston. I'm also open to 1.5 and 2 hour lessons, as well!--------
--------Please note that there is a cat at the home. If you are allergic to cats please keep that in mind when signing up--
--------I also do in-home drum lessons for $60 an hour. This means that the drum lessons will be held at your home. ----------You need to have a functioning acoustic or electronic drum set to sign up for in-home drum lessons.---------------
