STRUM 2 THE BEAT

LEARN SONGS YOU WANT TO PLAY

Looking for Guitar or Drum Lessons? Strum2TheBeat offers fun guitar & drum lessons. Learning to play is much easier than most think.  I do lessons IN-PERSON and LIVE ONLINE!  


I'm a CERTIFIED TEACHER and have played guitar for over 20 years and drums for over 25 years. Currently, I have around 35 students in the Denver area.

LESSONS BY STRUM2THEBEAT

GUITAR LESSONS: My guitar lessons include songs students want to play, chord structures, strumming patterns, some simple theory and lots of FUN!! I will specifically model my lesson to help you at your current skill level. Learning guitar is much easier than people think. I specialize in beginner and intermediate guitar lessons but am very successful helping folks of all ages achieve their musical goals.

DRUM LESSONS: I always include songs students want to learn, stick technique, rhythm, rock, country, swing beats, and lots of FUN!!

GROUP LESSONS: Though individual lessons offer a great opportunity for growth and learning, especially for students that are beginners, I also prioritize Jam Bands and Group Lessons because research shows that learning music in a group setting is very beneficial. Jam Bands are a 90 minute session, generally on a Saturday, where students have an opportunity to learn a song with other guitar and drum students and play together as a band. Group Lessons are an ongoing opportunity to learn songs and theory with 3-4 other students. In these settings, students learn the value and skill of playing with other musicians and have lots of fun doing it.

MY LESSON RATES

30 Minutes - $30

45 Minutes - $40

Hourly Rate - $50

Travel Fees ($5-$20)

Group Lessons - As low as $25 for an Hour

REVIEWS

"My kids and I love lessons with Kevin. He is always positive and sculpts the instruction to our interests."

Cory

"Kevin has been a great instructor for my son. He is very organized, tracks progress and gives a quick status update at the end of each lesson."

Jackie

"Kevin is a wonderful guitar instructor. He incorporates fun into every lesson. Kevin is patient and supportive, but also challenges our daughter. Kevin is a terrific teacher and I would suggest him hands down to anyone looking to learn the guitar."  

Lesley

"Love his method of teaching. Kevin is very thorough and uses technology to enhance the lesson and practice times. He has also incorporated fun opportunities to encourage playing with others like Jam Band Sessions and playing alongside his performance settings for the kids to get a real sense of being a musician."
