About Charles Barchuk
My name is Charles Barchuk. I've been playing the drums for about 36 years and have been teaching for almost 20. I specialize in all styles of drum set from Jazz to Latin to Rock as well as Rudimental and Concert Snare Drumming. From the time I was small, sticks of some kind were always in my hands. I started taking lessons with a gentlemen in the US Army Band at a young age and studied with him through Highschool. During this time I was involved in whatever music programs were available including Marching Band, Concert Band, and Jazz Ensemble. This pattern played out through my Univeristy years as well.
After graduating I continued performing in various bands and groups of all types and styles along with teaching. Today I'm blessed with the opportunity to be on staff at my church as the main drummer for our worship team; something I've had the honor to do for almost the the past 10 years. Outside of music I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and son and our sweet lab/pit Ruby.
So that's a little about me. I look forward to learning more about you and helping you reach whatever your musical goals are. I try to cater to every student as individually as I can carving out the smoothest path possible. If you have any questions or would like to set up a meet with me don't hesitate to get in touch with Music & Arts. Look forward to meeting you!
