My name is Garrett Hawkins and I’m a freelance drummer in Fair Oaks California. Since becoming a more visible drummer in the Sacramento area I decided to set up this site to offer information about private drum lessons, my freelance drumming service, and as a place to display drumming videos for you to enjoy. If you’re interested in learning how to play the drums, or need drum tracks for an upcoming recording project I would be happy to hear from you. There’s information about both of these services in the tabs above. Also be sure to check out the video section to watch some free drum lessons and drum covers that I got to enjoy filming.  I am also the founder of Sacramento Mobile Music which you can find out more about at and the drummingwebsite
