About Jay Deachman

I’ve been fortunate to study with some of the world’s most celebrated drummers and teachers and I love to impart this knowledge to drummers of all ages and abilities. I customize study programs to each individual based on their expectations and goals.

These can include but are not limited to:
Basic to advanced hand/foot technique including Gladstone free stroke, Moeller finger control and more. I draw from my extensive study with Jim Chapin, Dom Famularo, John Fisher and Don Reid to form my techniques.
Different styles of grooves and fills including rock, funk, Afro-Cuban, hybrids and everything in between. Over the years I’ve studied with several masters in these styles such as Mike Clark, Matt Chamberlain, Duduka Da Fonseca, Bobby Sanabria, Zack Danziger, Kim Plainfield and more to learn the essence of these grooves.
Double bass technique I use several different programs to teach power, speed and endurance for double bass players.
Playing to a click is fun and easy! I promise!!!
Preparing for a studio session - specialized programs for drummers who are preparing for an important show or session in the near future.
Short to long term study programs, to suit your immediate and future needs.
