About Jon Walman

Jon Walman
Jon Walman
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Brandon, FL
Speaks: English
Instructs: Drums
Performance Experience: Over a span of 30 years, I have performed on stage, in the recording studio, and have been published under the Moon Records (NYC) label, with multiple tours to boot. Some notable artists I have performed/recorded with, are Richie Kicklighter (Solo), Bert Englesmann (Greg Allman), Billy Ashbaugh (Pat Benetar, NSYNC, Moody Blues), Twinkle (Warner Bros. Recording Artist), Strangeways (Moon SKA Recording Artists), Faith Based Praise & Worship Bands (Small to Large Congregations).
Teaching Experience: Teaching students percussion and drum set for over 12 years.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe the process of teaching a new instrument should be rewarding and fulfilling, especially when practicing. It’s just as important to enjoy the process, and practice time, as much as it is to perform. I’m a goal oriented teacher, and look for the hidden talent many students already possess.

Get to know Jon Walman

Hello Music Aficionados, My Name is Jon! 

I am originally from Charlottesville, Virginia, and have also lived in Hawaii, California, Missouri, and Iowa. I am married with two amazing children (both involved in award winning music & theatre productions) My musical influences are many, and the mentors and artists I have been blessed to work with come from all over the world, from as far as Zaire, and Kenya, Africa to New Orleans, Louisiana... If your wondering, I was even taught some Lingala, or Swahili...."Akuna Matata" sound familiar? My musical brain carries in it, these amazing styles - Classical, Jazz, Congolese, SKA (Mento), Soweto Jive, Pop, or Rock, Afro-Cuban, or Latin, and just about anything that speaks percussion and drumming. My teaching experience began almost 25 years ago (although 12 of those years were literally teaching at schools) I tapped into an amazing opportunity to reach people through drums and percussion. If your looking to begin the journey of drumming, or need to sharpen those rudiments (I teach the PAS essentials) then I can't wait to meet you.I will give you more than enough valuable tools, and resources for your drummers tool box, and have fun in the process.
