First round of lessons went great last week! For now I'll be scheduling most of the lessons upon request, so shoot me message if you are interested.
To all of my students last week, keep up the good work!
About Jordan Mancino
Hey Guys and Gals, I'm teaching lessons again, as promised! For those who aren't familiar with me, I play drums in the metal band As I Lay Dying. If you want more info about my band's history or current status please visit our website or Facebook page ("asilaydying.com" or "facebook.com/asilaydying").
So a little about myself... I started playing drums when I was 13. I am self taught on drums; however, I was classically trained on horned instruments when I was younger, which supplied me with the ability to read sheet music and other musical notation. Throughout my early years as a drummer I studied drum books and videos as well as many of the great metal records, which has all attributed to my style and skill as a drummer. I played in several metal and punk bands throughout high school before my singer and I started As I Lay Dying. Since As I Lay Dying's conception I've had a few other musical endeavors including session and live drumming. My many years of studio work and touring have given me a rather unique perspective on drumming and playing with a band, as I'm sure most other professional drummers would tell you.
My teaching style is all based on: 1. the skill level of my students 2. the students goals and musical direction 3. correct fundamentals 4. learning how to play and create music with other musicians.
I'm looking forward to working with all that are interested as well as teaching online through BandHappy.
