Where do you teach lessons?  Can you come to my house and teach?

Yes!  I currently do not teach from my home, so teaching at the student’s house is the easiest way to conduct the lessons.  I live in Somerville, MA, own a car, and will travel within a reasonable distance to teach.  For drum students not able to have lessons in their home, there is another option.  I also teach lessons at Jamspot in Somerville which is a very nice, professional rehearsal facility with quality drum equipment.   Please e-mail me and we can coordinate the location and time for lessons.

How much do you charge for lessons?

I do not publish this on the website, but please e-mail me and I will be happy to send you my current rates, different payment options (I have discounted lesson rates for people who prepay for blocks of 5 or 10 lessons), etc.

I see that you perform regularly on drums but much less on piano.  Does that mean that you are better at teaching drums than piano?

Wow, that’s a great question!  Thanks for asking.  Although piano was my first instrument and I still practice it regularly, I do consider drums to be my main instrument as a performer.  As a teacher, though, I feel equally confident and get just as much pleasure from teaching piano as I do from drums.  The students that I have taught lessons to have been half drum students and half piano students, so I have just as much experience teaching both instruments.  The one difference is that I mainly teach beginner piano students, while I accept drum students at any level from beginner to professional.

I have a question that is not answered on your website.  What should I do?

You should e-mail me at matt@mattgrabermusic.com and I would be happy to answer your question.
