The following is a list of our members who are interested in teaching. A teaching studio space is not offered by the SSMU Musician's Collective, and an appropriate location of lessons is to be organized between the teacher and student. Please keep in mind that as most of our teachers are full-time university students, flexibility of scheduling is often greatly appreciated.

Keep in mind that some teachers may be unavailable during some or all of the summer months (May - August).

drums

Caleb Harrison I have been playing the drum set for about ten years now, and have a large array of techniques and styles in my arsenal. I studied under Don Leppard and Thomas Reid of Reidwood studios, two extremely diverse drummers that have guided me by expressing ideas about taste, technique, and especially playing within the music. These three aspects of drumming have become my focus. I am a minimalist and the ideas behind my teaching mostly apply to playing with other musicians, using the drums as an expressive but not altogether overpowering mechanism by which one can produce a tasteful and solid mix. I also play guitar, piano, and sing and therefore have a fairly strong grip on the notion of musicality. I have played with several acts (most recently Dana Sipos) including small jazz ensembles, folk-rock groups, fusion groups, etc. in assorted venues (festivals, bars, special events, etc.).
