Drums Lessons

Rick Hawkins

It all started at a 5000 watt radio station in Fresno, California. Just kidding. I have been drumming for over 30 years. I started in school bands, where I learned to read music, going from elementary school through college. At Augusta College (Augusta State University,) I played in the concert and pep bands and learned to appreciate jazz music by playing in the big band. Then I participated in the unavoidable rock band era playing in Bystander and assorted other groups. Since those days I have made drumming my career. Not only do I teach full time, I play with The Jazz Collective, Mood Indigo, The Fresh Music All-stars, and The Channelheimer Oompah Band. I also play percussion in the Augusta Concert Band for most of the year.
