When I was young I noticed I was one of the few people taking private lessons, and now as an educator I see so many students who would like to learn more but can't afford it.

I'm tired of money getting in the way of passion and talent. Any middle and high school percussion students in Gwinnett County or nearby counties can audition for this scholarship for affordable music education. There will be 50% off, 75% off and 100% COMPLETELY FREE scholarships available each semester!

How can this be?? Well, if you win a scholarship you have to sign a contract that we will discuss about practice and putting your musical skills to good use. I want to see more people enjoying music and percussion, that's it! I will only ever ask you to become a stronger version of yourself, and I will NEVER let you feel inadequate.

Auditions dates will be announced periodically. Please share this with anyone you know who may benefit; parents, students, band directors, anyone!

Come join the Bennett Drum Studio family and reap the benefits of the Percussion Scholarship Program!

Bennett Drum Studio has been nominated for Best of Gwinnett 2020!

Teaching is truly my passion. With over 20 years of classical training + live performance experience, I have been given a great store of information that I cannot wait to share with my students! I have been teaching music lessons in Lawrenceville as my full time occupation since 2015, which is when I officially opened Bennett Drum Studio.  If you or your child have ever been interested in learning to play drums, or would like to take your skills to the next level-- please contact me! Private, personalized music lessons in Gwinnett County with Bennett Drum Studio (formerly ACBennett Music) are available for drum set, orchestral percussion (snare drum, timpani, marimba/keyboard, multi-percussion, etc.), and marching percussion. Skype/Facetime lessons are also available!

In 2014, I obtained a Bachelor of Music in percussion degree from Townsend School of Music at Mercer University. Learning and pursuing perfection with an instrument is a lifelong pursuit and one of my greatest joys. I continue my own education by studying with as many of the most renowned drummers and percussionists in the world, including Mike Dawson of Modern Drummer Magazine.

Bennett Drum Studio is operated from my professional 1,000 sq. ft. home studio in Lawrenceville, GA. I met my wife, Morgan (who is also a percussionist!), while in music school and we have 4 awesome dogs we adopted from a local Atlanta rescue. We love the Gwinnett community, and are so happy to be here! We hope to meet you and your family soon. Sign up for a trial lesson today and see what we're all about!
