Allegra Drum Education Program
Playing music is an art. So is creating the instrument
Playing an instrument well takes dedication, time and a passion for creating something beautiful from the fundamental building blocks at your disposal. The same is true in creating a fine instrument. We have learned over time the best way to create drums, and are dedicated to delivering only the finest. This is our passion.
Jim E Anderson
I have been teaching individualized drum and percussion lessons in Sonora, California since 1997.
I offer beginning to advanced snare drum, drum set and band percussion lessons in my studio four days a week Monday thru Thursday. I am also available for clinics, lessons and masterclasses at schools, workshops and other events.I have taught over 4,500 lessons to students from as young as 5 years old to 85 years young.
I am conscientious and enthusiastic teacher and I enjoy helping students establish and attain their musical goals. I create a fun learning environment for students and improve my passion for music instruction by attending regular music clinics and conventions to learn new teaching methods.
My methods create excited drummer/musicians who excel on drum set, rudimental (marching) style drumming, orchestral and school band music. You or your child will experience increased self-confidence through concentrated, individualized private music lessons.
I have gone through the “live scan” fingerprint and background check process and have taught in many local middle and high schools as an instructor and coach. I highly encourage participation in school music programs for those students who are afforded that opportunity. I carry business insurance for both my private studio and my on-site school activities
I considers myself a ‘student of the drums’ and believe that there is always something new to learn and incorporate into my playing, performing and teaching. Another Quick Note: Drums and rhythm are primal. Everyone loves drums because rhythm is hard-wired into our human DNA. Mankind has been creating rhythm by banging on things for a very long time. And it’s fun! Drumming makes you happy! That’s why at Andersong Music we say: "Drums Good… Make Happy!!"
