Hi. JT Cavanaugh here. Owner and director of Cavanaugh Enterprises and Cavanaugh Studios, which includes Cavanaugh Piano Studio and Cavanaugh Drum Studio. The website you are at now includes general information on my business as well as my piano and drum books, drum charts, and sheet music for sale for your education and pleasure. Use it to buy my drum lessons book, your favorite pop drum charts, the Cavanaugh Method piano book and piano sheet music with Cavanaugh arrangements. Do you want to learn how to write your own arrangements for piano music? How to play the piano for fun. The Cavanaugh Method not only prefers but respects melody. We teach you to sing with your piano. When you play using our method, your piano sings. Our piano instruction book has been a classic for decades. Want to teach yourself to play in a band? Ever fantasized about how to play drums? How to play snare drum? How to play bass drum? How to play cymbals? How to play hi-hat? How to play gongs? How to play double bass? How to play tom toms, small tom toms, floor tom toms? How to play bongos? I offer you here an excellent drum instruction book. In my 220 page book for teaching drums for beginner and intermediate students, “Sit Yourself Down and Play the Drums: A Revolutionary Approach to Drum-Set Instruction,” you can learn all about drumming. Make the most of your drum set and enjoy it all: notation, syncopation, syncopated notes, syncopated effects, beats and fills, pick up notes, buzzed notes, grace notes, rolled notes, drum rolls, stroke rolls, drags, sticking, paradiddle sticking, reversed sticking, ternary time, tie joints. I grew up on the popular music of Elvis, the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, del Shannon, The Dobie Brothers, The Everly Brothers, Eddie Money, Charlie Foxx, The Hollies, Sam Cooke, The Turtles, TG Shepard, Johnny Paycheck, The Gentrys, Tom Jones, The Animals, Lovin’ Spoonful, Bobby Darin, The Zombies, The Kinks, Dr. Hook, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I loved it all. I have spent my entire life loving it. I wrote the drum charts offered here of songs by these musicians first my own pleasure and now for yours. I keep my prices low for you, just high enough to stay lucky in making my living through music. My drum charts are accurate and will serve you well. Some of these songs speak personally to me: Tell Her No; Running Scared; Cathy’s Clown, Pyschotic Reaction, Moondance, Tell Me Why, Seven Day Weekend, Baby I Do, Let’s Work Together. Others are just darn cute and make me happy: Carrie Anne; Baby Hold On; Little Sister; Runaway; Red Rubber Ball. I’m sure you can purchase some of your favorite songs here and have fun drumming along to them with my popular drum charts. I also offer private piano lessons and private drum lessons in the Kansas City area. I am located in South Kansas City near the state line between Missouri and Kansas.
