Tim Blackwell Drummer
Learn to develop essential reading skills, proper technique, and playing styles such as rock, funk, jazz, Latin, fusion, etc.

For future prospective students, I am currently teaching at Hames Music in Gaffney, SC and my private studio in Spartanburg, SC. I offer thirty-minute and one hour lessons that meet once-a-week.

With thirteen years of teaching experience, and countless hours of studying and playing, I am prepared to take you to the next level. No matter if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player…played in a past life and are looking to pull the drums out of the closet, have years of playing experience and are looking to grow your craft in new directions, or you need to work on overlooked reading skills or rudiments that you have evaded for all those years. Maybe you are trying to prepare for a school audition to play in an ensemble or prepare for college entrance auditions. Or, maybe you want to learn to play so you can play in your church.
    What ever the reason, if you have a passion for the drums, the desire to grow, and are willing to practice a minimum of thirty minutes a day, I can help point you in the right direction and guide you to your goals…In today’s market it is essential to be versatile and to be prepared.

I am a working musician and there will be times in which I will have to rearrange our schedule due to gigs or studio sessions. This is generally not a problem and it is also an essential part of bringing the experience back to the lesson studio to share with you. After all, there is time to study and there is time to play, it is through playing gigs that we learn the most and gain the most in the development as a player. This also gives you a gauge so you know what you need to work on in your practice time.
