Charlie Harper is a music composer, songwriter, musician, and instructor. Music has guided Charlie to many places and has given him a unique collection of stories and experiences he would like to share with the world. Starting his music education at the age of 12 and touring the world at the age of 17, Charlie has been performing live consistently and has been part of and performed with bands signed to major labels such as Warner Brothers, Island Def Jam, and Columbia Records. He has had the opportunity to be on some big stages, touring and being direct support for bands such as Tove Lo, Imagine Dragons, The 1975, ZZ Ward, and many others. He has also had an appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden. Charlie has received some musical training in Houston, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, and through Berklee College of Music. He continues to play live, teach, record, and compose daily.

Charlie is a wonderful teacher! He makes the lesson fun and keeps my son interested (which is not always easy with a 7 year old :) He is very patient and positive and works well with all age levels. - Jennifer D.
We love his enthusiasm and his love to teach - Dan G.
Drum lessons with Charlie have been fantastic. He has a gift for explaining new concepts to beginners, and brings tons of enthusiasm for whatever music my 7-year-old is excited about. She's getting fundamentals in a format that makes her look forward to practicing and she is listening to more music (in terms of both genres and quantity) and thinking about music differently. - Emily W.
Charlie is a fantastic instructor. He is able to encourage my son and demonstrate in a way that encourages passion for the drums. - Heather G.
My ten-year-old son has really enjoyed Charlie’s lessons. He’s easy to relate to, and a great teacher! - Nate B.
Charlie Harper is incredible to work with. A super talent when it comes to the quality of his work, professionalism and communication. He is able to create very rapidly and meet any deadline you send his way. - Aubrie W.
Charlie continues to teach me new drum skills. - Robert H.

Always very professional in our business dealings. - George M.
