Ash Pearson

A great player is someone who isn’t pretending to be something that they are not. 

Lessons with Ash will help you to find your voice on the drums. Whether it’s the joy you get from holding down a solid AC/DC style 4/4 groove, playing your first show, learning jazz syncopation, funk drumming, metal drumming or even methods for soloing. Ash can also help you out with other aspects of drumming such as: playing to a click, preparing for a studio recording, drum tuning, coming up with a warm up routine, learning someone else’s music or even approaches to writing your own drum parts.

Lessons with Ash will put you in a position to benefit from his 20+ years of drumming.  14+ of those years has been spent touring professionally around the world playing concerts in a variety of settings. From 10 people in Kentucky, 10,000 people opening for Slipknot, to 100,000 people at Wacken Germany. If you’re interested in live performance on the drums, Ash can help you out.

On top of that, he has written drum books, been in Modern Drummer magazine, won awards, played on many studio recordings, done session work, toured the world, films content with Drumeo,  drum techs, gives drum clinics and loves teaching.

Regardless if you’re playing just for fun, challenging yourself by expanding your comfort zone or looking to do music for a living, lessons with Ash will help you on you’re journey.

Kris started as a guitar teacher and ended up a friend. I couldn't have learned guitar from a better person. His enthusiasm, never mind unbelievable talent make guitar learning a joy..

Our kids are hard to please- but the style and attitude of the group is so unique and engaging that our kids ask to go back. It’s a pleasure to watch them enjoy music and have fun with it while they learn. We highly recommend this school.

I have the great fortune of being taught by Kris.. and catapulted me into a whole new level with no limit in sight! I have taken lessons from other teachers there as well and they are all phenomenal.
