Genres and Subjects Taught

I have three methods that I use depending on the personality and learning style of the student as well as many other supplemental materials (flash cards, ear training exercises, etc.) I lean towards the Faber and Faber method, but am also familiar with the Bastien and Alfred methods.

I break my curriculum into four sections, all equally important: theory, technique, application, and performance. I've found these four components, if properly implemented, will allow a student to play and enjoy piano for the rest of their lives.

Student Reviews




Ann Arbor, MI

Daniel Drummond taught our 9 year old son when we lived in Ann Arbor. My son had been taking piano lessons since the age of 5, and I was worried about finding a teacher for him when we had to move to Ann Arbor. With Daniel, my son did not miss a beat. Daniel has a wonderful ability to challenge his students gently. My son developed his skill and grew as a piano player all the while having fun and looking forward to each and every lesson. He especially enjoyed the recitals. I feel fortunate that we were able to find a teacher like Daniel for our son.




Ann Arbor, MI

Mr Drummond has been a great piano instructor to our two sons (ages 7,9) for the past year. We have been very pleased with the expertise and professionalism that Mr Drummond has shown during the lessons. He makes each lesson educational and fun. Our boys are excited about going to each lesson and learning to play the piano. We recommend, without reservation, Mr Drummond to anyone wanting to learn to play the piano.
