    Russell Sharp is incredible! I had an amazing time not just learning from him but sharing music ideas. He's an amazing person to be around because he wants you to get better and of course have fun, he's not a mechanical ad boring to be around like some teachers are. He has become one of my best friends.

    My son Dustin has gone from an uncertain child drummer to a confident teen drummer in his lessons with Russell. Russell is a patient, kind, inviting, encouraging, and most of all, inspiring teacher. He has a seemingly easygoing manner of teaching with the student, while his good nature is coupled with a sharp focus on the student's individuality, growth and progress. He wants nothing more than for your child to succeed , to feel great about their drumming, and to reach ever higher levels of proficiency. Three years and I couldn't be a happier parent. Now he is at his first year in a Boarding School yet one of the top things he wants to do when he comes back for the Holidays is have some lessons with his favorite teacher, Russell.
