Gary Foreman had one goal in mind when creating The Dallas Drum School: to help everyone accomplish a higher level of personal achievement through music. Now, with his private and group lessons in drums and general percussion, he passes on his knowledge to make that goal a reality. During sessions shaped to accommodate students' personal goals, skill levels, genres, and desires to rock out on a rotating, fire-spitting drum set, he uses individual analysis and general method books to ensure custom learning experiences. His focus rests on fundamental skills—hand techniques, timekeeping, and independence as applied to the drum set—building a base that students can expand upon. Advanced students may bring metronomes, brushes, mallets, or drum sets to augment the growth of their skills. With enough interest and practice, Gary hopes his students will walk away with a newfound passion for music and an increased aptitude for learning.

Even as a tyke, Jonathan Pharr couldn't be torn away from thrashing on his drum set. Later, he picked up guitar and bass, and from there it was off to the races. For him, teaching ranks pretty high on his ever-expanding list of musical passions. As owner and director of his eponymous music school, he oversees a staff of certified instructors, each of whom bring their own unique musical skills, experiences, and backstories to their teaching. The result is a welcoming environment where everyone from toddlers to toddlers who have aged significantly go wild on the drums, guitar, bass, piano, and violin or learn how to control their vocals and expand their singing range while reaping the lifelong benefits of exposure to music.
