Jason Austin—Drums

Jason has been teaching drums at Golden Music for 18 years.  He began playing drums at the age of five and has performed around the Denver-area and surrounding states in a variety of bands including country, rock and blues.  Jason has a passion for teaching drums and his philosophy centers around “making it fun first.”  While technical aspects of drumming are a large part of weekly lessons, bringing in favorite songs to learn is encouraged and included in the lesson each and every week.

Jason has experience teaching all levels and styles and truly enjoys inspiring first timers to give it a try.  Lessons focus on reading and writing music, improvisation, “playing by ear,” and rudiment development in a variety of styles.


   “I take pride in listening to and diagnosing what students need to be successful, and then enjoy adapting the plan to meet each individual student’s goals.”
