AR2 Drummers play for themselves.

If you are looking for a way to challenge your drumming and bring it to the next level, then Andrew Hoinacki and AR2 Drumming Studio is the way to go. Serendipitously, I stumbled upon Andrew in the Fall of 2010 when I was looking for a new personal challenge to explore. Andrew immediately recognized that I had a strong desire to be stretched, continually looking to reach that next performance level and breakthrough. In response, he customized a training program using unique and novel ways to challenge me as a player even stretching me beyond what I even thought I was capable of achieving. Just a sampling of Andrew’s tools include custom written solo scores, critique on demand to provide written feedback of improvement areas, and rudiment development exercises to meet the specific teaching needs based upon my current level of play.

Through mentoring and sound teaching methods, Andrew brought me from a true beginner, never having played before, novice tenor drummer, to becoming the lead snare of a local grade 4 drum corps, and now playing as a member of a grade 3 corps under his leadership. Over the years, we have developed a strong teacher/student partnership that has yielded phenomenal results. Learning to play snare certainly has been one of the most challenging and personally rewarding areas of my life. Thanks, Andrew, for all of your help and guidance over the years. It is an honor and a privilege to be one of your students.
