Lessons include learning and refining students’ rudimentary and sight reading ability, eliminating bad habits, improving dynamics, creating better drum fills, soloing, playing with other musicians, composing original parts, understanding the mechanics of song structure, and building a personal signature playing style. Ear training is enhanced with drum play-along songs. Kane records every session so students and parents can review progress.
Lessons can be offered at his Hardwick school studio, at his home-based music studio in Brookfield, Mass., and in students’ nearby homes. Kane offers a free one-week trial before students commit to regular lessons. Lessons generally cost between $35-50 depending upon length and location.
