B.J. Capelli teaching how to set the beat.

I've been a private drum and percussion teacher for nearly 20 years, and also a rock band coach, drumline instructor and high school band director. During tens-of-thousands of hours in the lesson studio, classroom, concert hall, and marching band field, I've helped thousands of students start or continue their musical journey. Let me help you! Whether you're a beginning musician with no prior experience; an advanced drummer looking for a fresh perspective for your playing; an aspiring professional musician looking for an insider's edge for auditions, college, or the music industry; or a music educator in need of percussion advice and assistance, I can help you achieve your goals.
