Tim Kuchta - Drummer, Percussionist & Educator
Welcome to my site, thanks for stopping by. Drumming and music, in my opinion, is all about being open to ideas, learning and enjoying that “in the moment” feeling. One of the great things that I love about music is the fact that you can continue to learn and get better as long as you want. I don’t claim to know everything about drumming and music, I’m still learning, but I’ve enjoyed learning a lot about it over the years (decades actually!!) and plan to continue to learn more. Part of the learning process for me has been teaching. You can learn a great deal from teaching. There is a well known saying about performing musicians: “Those who can, play; those who can’t, teach”. My philosophy is: “Those who can play and teach do both!!”. That’s what I do; I’m a performing musician and a teacher. To me performing and teaching are interconnected.
If you are searching for a qualified and competent teacher, you should consider these three important criteria: the teacher’s educational background; performance experience; and references/testimonials. I feel I have a very good track record in all three areas.
Hope to see or hear from you soon!
