I’m thrilled to be able to teach and connect with fans on a personal level. I find it important for me to be able to share my knowledge of music and drumming with anyone and everyone who’s willing to learn and listen.

Drum Lessons & Life After a (Band) Break-Up


Drum lessons for drummers of all experience levels. I will be teaching technique, warm ups, and basic skills on the kit. I will also be discussing the ins & outs of being a freelance musician after playing in a touring band for 10 + years.

Jess Bowen is a drummer known for her role in the pop-rock band The Summer Set, and has established herself as a rising musician and one of the top role models for female drummers. This summer she is playing for 3OH!3 on the entirety of Warped Tour.

Since the start of The Summer Set in 2007, she has embarked on sold out world tours from South America to Asia, and their music has been featured on TV shows from the likes of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars to Good Morning America. The band performed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2013, and performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival alongside acts such as Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry.

On her own, Jess starred in a national TV Pepsi campaign with Charli XCX in 2015. She also plays in NEKOKAT, with Jordan Witzigreuter of The Ready Set  and Cameron Walker, in addition to performing with other acts such as 3OH!3 Alice Glass, and Thomas Ian Nicholas.
