Sara Neidorf



I have been giving private drum lessons since 2007, with a primary focus on rock drumming, rudiments, interdependence, and polyrhythms. My teaching practice is geared towards encouraging more women, non-binary, and queer people to tackle the drums. I’m excited to work with students of all backgrounds, genders, ability levels, ages, and interests.

My rehearsal space is located in Berlin Neukölln, near S-bahn Sonnenallee, and I am also willing to travel to students’ homes or studios.

Lessons are always flexible and tailored to each student’s particular interests and learning habits.
