PEMBROKE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — After years playing in bands and teaching private drum lessons, local musician Tyler Davis is taking things to the next level.
Davis opened up TDaveDrums, a new drum school based out of Soundcheck Studios in Pembroke. He's offering one on one and group sessions with students of all ages to help people learn how to play the drums.
TDaveDrums features not only lessons on how to play the drums, but also offers seminars and master-classes on things like the history of drums and how to work in the music industry. All of the instructors at TDaveDrums are current musicians who play live shows, something Davis said is important for those just learning the instrument.
"You want to learn from people that are out in the field day in and day out," Davis said. "Every single one of my drum employers are gigging at least once a week."
Davis said his goal with his new business is to not just make his students better drummers, but also better people.
"In the music industry, you get the gig by being a good person and by skill," Davis said. "It's not just from skill alone."
Soundcheck Studios is located at 150 Corporate Park Drive in Pembroke.
