Hello. I’m Nathan Chappell.
My name is Nathan Chappell, I’m a musician. A drummer. A percussionist. Teaching drumming is important because I have seen too many drummers who didn’t have proper education, there’s a lot lacking in their technique and they struggle because of it. I would rather our young musicians receive the right instruction, so that they are making quality music. And actually making art.
Nathan Chappell’s Lessons
Nate’s Drum lessons explore both the technical and the expressive side of playing. Nate teaches drum students how to use drum rudiments, not only as tools for crafting drum beats and fills, but also as a means of expression.
Right Out Of The Gate
Students will focus on rudiments, but at the same time will develop tempo, stick control, and hand position.
Musically when you try something new, you’re on this dark, overgrown path. But once you break through, it’s so obvious that you just fall into it. Creating these pathways is important for creativity and expression.
Nathan is one of the hardest working drummers in Davis County, taking regular gigs in styles as diverse as prog, jam, country, singer songwriter, latin, and of course, rock.
Nate played drums in high school, and played in bands, then pursued other interests for his young adult life. Just over 6 years ago, he bought a cajon and moved to Ogden and decide music was going to be the thing he was going to be serious about. He had never been in a music scene, but started finding work with the cajon
Outside Of Performing
Nate is regularly called in by non-profits and educational institutions to lead drum circles, such as Ogden School District, Arts in the Park, Odyssey Elementary, and Ogden Arts Fest’s Nurture the Creative Mind Foundation.
