Keith is a wonderful drum instructor. Our 13-year old daughter has been taking drum set lessons from him for the past two months and has progressed immensely. She loves it! After each 30 minute lessons, she swears it was only five minutes. Keith is very patient and knowledgeable instructor.Dec 8, 2018
Very good communicator. Professional and responsive. Looking forward to working with him.Jul 12, 2018Verified
I have been studying with Keith John for about one month now. I am very happy that he took me on as a pupil. I am 56 years old and I didn’t want someone significantly younger than myself as an instructor. I feel that trust is imperative to effective instruction and I definitely trust Keith. His expert knowledge and vast experience is hugely beneficial to anyone who is willing to listen to his instruction and follow his sage advice. He is very easy to talk with and it’s obvious that he has been instructing students for a long time. I really like the privacy of his drum studio also. I would without hesitation recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning how to play drums,regardless of age.Aug 12, 2018Verified

Keith was a really great and helpful teacher. I'm from Chile and English isn't my first language but he was always very patient and understanding. He is very dedicated to his students and gives good advice to help improve your playing. I 100% recommend Keith as a teacher.Jun 29, 2018Verified

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Unless a student is advanced, I recommend that they sign up for a half-hour lesson. My rate is $35/half hour. I give plenty of material during that half-hour for students to practice for an entire week until their next lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In addition to asking what goals the potential student has, I ask questions to find out a student's experience in the past, what study materials they have used up to now, if any, I ask them to bring those items to the first lesson. During that first lesson, I will observe the student play, analyze their skills and determine exactly where to place them and determine their needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a 3 time Grammy Award Winner. One of my bands is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I have worked with many famous bands and musicians. I have travelled the world playing drums and entertaining many in venues of all sizes.
