David Hocker


Thanks for visiting Out of Hock Drum Studio. If you’re here looking for an experienced, reliable, professional drum teacher in the Pasadena area, I applaud your sound judgment and excellent taste!

Whether you're just beginning, perform in your high school band or orchestra, play professionally around town, or simply enjoy grooving along to your favorite tunes on your vintage Ludwigs, I can help you develop your skills to become both a better drummer and a more complete musician.

 I have over 30 years experience working with students of all ages – from 5 to 55 –
at every skill level. Whatever your goals, I can put together a lesson plan to help
you reach them.

I teach out of my drum studio in South Pasadena, but I also see students in Pasadena, Altadena, Arcadia, Alhambra, Sierra Madre, Glendale, Burbank, Hollywood, Long Beach, and Los Angeles.

Feel free to take a look around. You’ll find all pertinent information here on the site.
And don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to ask a question, check references,
make an appointment to meet with me personally, or set up a lesson schedule.
