Drum Lessons with Jon
My background as a University of the Arts trained musician and 20 years of experience are dedicated towards improving the abilities of aspiring drummers. Students enjoy the benefits of a lesson plan custom tailored to their goals and interests. First time playing? Revisiting your musical passion? Let’s go!
Common areas of focus include coordination, technique, stick control, tempo, speed, dynamics, music notation, music theory, and how to put it all together to make the most out of your instrument. Students will learn how to strengthen their practice routine, eliminate bad habits, overcome performance anxiety, play like their favorite drummers and move around the drums with confidence. I pride my teaching approach on putting things into a digestible learning perspective and progressing at a pace that is best for each individual student.
In Studio Rates: $30 – 30 minutes, $55 – 1 hour, $80 – 1.5 hours
Virtual Drum Lessons
I also teach virtual drum lessons on a TIPS ONLY basis!!!
Students have the option of FaceTime or Skype, and pay what they think the lesson is worth. I began teaching online drum lessons when COVID-19 forced business in Philadelphia to close to promote social distancing. This has been an incredible way of maintaining the 1 on 1 dynamic you don’t get from YouTube tutorials and pre-recorded lessons. I address YOUR needs and directly answer YOUR questions.
Jon Ardito is an outstanding teacher! My son started a year ago and I noticed a cosmic change in his skill at the drum set and his views about them. He is a fun and very talented teacher. If you are searching for a drum teacher, I highly recommend Jon Ardito. – Shuo T

I have been taking drum lessons with Jon for about 4 months now and they’ve been nothing short of outstanding. He has a very laid back teaching style tailored to the individual, making the lessons both enjoyable and beneficial. The thing that sets Jon apart from other instructors is that he doesn’t just teach the drums, he teaches music. Everything we’ve done, from simple hand technique exercises to complex coordination exercises, has been approached with musicality in mind. Because of this I’ve grown in both my technical ability and, more importantly, as a musician. – Matt F
