    Jake is a great teacher and can teach any type of drum style to anyone. I have been taking lessons from him for 3 years, and every lesson has been fun and beneficial. His teaching ability is outstanding and I wouldnt change anything about his way of teaching.

    I have had the privilege of taking drum lessons from Jake Burton since September 2011. Not only is he an incredible drummer, but a wonderful teacher too. Jake is patient, encouraging, and has such a knack for breaking down difficult concepts and techniques to make them easy to understand. Best of all, every lesson with him is a blast. I feel very lucky to have started with Jake as an absolute beginner because he helped me develop the right technique from the outset. Highly recommended!

    He's an amazing drum teacher. He explains everything to where I can understand easier.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I cover lots of different topics in drum lessons, but the big four are reading, rudiments, learning different grooves/styles, and taking all of that knowledge and actually applying it to music.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Find some reputable teachers in the area and find someone who fits your style of learning. The right teacher can make all of the difference.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Just start with one student and go from there. It helps if you have taken drum lessons before so that you know what to expect in a lesson. It also helps if you can read music and you know your rudiments. It can be helpful to work with a student out of a method book.
