Hi, I'm Sheldon D'Eith, a Vancouver based drummer, educator and author. My mission as a teacher is to inspire my students to challenge themselves, gain confidence on and off the drum kit, and most importantly have fun while learning to play music.
My new beginner drum book, "Crash! Boom! Pow!" Learning to Play Drums, encompasses my teaching methods in a gamified guide to unlocking your inner drummer. By harnessing the spirit of play, you will be able to learn your favourite songs by ear, read and write drum notation, and craft your own rhythmic voice. If you're passionate about music and learning to play drums click a link below to book a lesson, or read more about me.
I am no stranger to the stage. I've performed over 400 shows at venues including The Commodore Ballroom, The Rickshaw Theatre, Tidemark Theatre, and opened for bands such as Five Alarm Funk, Bif Naked, Too Many Zooz, and Yukon Blonde. I have been performing in bands since I was twelve years old and continue to gain recognition in the Vancouver music scene.
In the studio I have recorded multiple albums with Raincity and hired for various session work for Vancouver based artists. Like a chameleon to groove, I can blend styles and play genres including Rock, Pop, Funk, Punk, Jazz, Blues, Reggae and more. In the studio I bring a calm and patient energy, with a sharp focus on giving the song what it needs.
