About Jason Summers

I have been blessed to be able to work as a professional musician for 30 years. Proficient in multiple musical genres, I've performed with bands all over the U.S., and I am proudly endorsed by Sabian cymbals. For over 12 years, I've been teaching drums in South Carolina at Lexington School of Music, Irmo Music Academy and Columbia Arts Academy. With between 45-60 students per week, I have an average retention of 4.5 years per student. When I began my career as an instructor, it became very apparent that being a successful musician and being an effective teacher require two very different skill sets. Through years of trial and error, I have mastered the art of balancing education,  entertainment and relationship-building in a manner that enables me to engage and retain students of all ages and abilities.   My enthusiasm and creative, flexible approach has allowed me to make a living doing what I love, and I consistently receive positive reviews from students and parents. I have had the honor to play at the Rock n Roll hall of fame, Carnegie Hall, Graceland, Bank of America stadium...and also enjoy onstage time with some of Rocks biggest legends, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), 80's Rock bands such as Ratt, Skid Row, Tonic, Big Wreck.

Music Student Retention is making my job more easy, but also way more fun and enjoyable.
I just can't thank Jason Summers and Drum Teaching Success enough. This program is making my lessons  and my job  not only more easy on myself, but also way more fun and enjoyable. I'm not running out of ideas anymore. In fact, I feel like I have a whole arsenal of things that I could do with my students.  And that makes me walk into the lessons way more prepared, confident with what I'm going to do, and knowing how to approach every single situation that it might present. And that is just priceless to me. It brings me joy, peace and happiness. My students are looking forward to our lesson every week and asking me what's the new Fun thing we'll do today!!!  Not to mention my retention rate is going way higher. Thank You Jason Summers. This program has not only changed my life but also my family as well!
