Drum Lessons (for children or teenagers)
Eddie is an excellent instructor!! This was my son's first drum lesson and he left Eddies session confident and eager to learn more! We look forward to coming back !!Oct 27, 2016Verified
Eddie is absolutely one of the most fun and passionate individuals I have ever worked with. From the get go Eddie has a plan when starting lessons with one, the results show much quicker then one thinks as well. My chops and overall touch and feel have changed dramatically since I took drum lessons with Eddie. Eddie is also flexible and if you have something in mind that you want to learn like a song for example; Eddie is more then willing to oblige. Overall, I had a great experience and I highly recommend Eddie Vallee to anyone young or old who wants to take drum lessons with him!Jul 31, 2013
Our son has been going to Eddie for two years now and he is an outstanding teacher. Jonathan is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other and Eddie has always accommodated to his needs. We moved out of the Phoenix area about 6 months ago and continue to do the online lessons with Eddie. Jonathan looks forward to his lessons every week and is doing great! We highly recommend Eddie for drum lessons.Jul 31, 2013
While home schooling my child finding a fun and exciting musical instrument for her to learn music was not easy. After the first drum lesson with Eddie, My daughter excelled in drums. Eddie brings the highest quality of education to teaching drums. I recommend Eddie to every parent I meet.Jan 24, 2012
My drumming has much improved since I took lessons from Eddie. He has a lot of experience both as a professional drummer and as a teacher. The lessons are well structured and much attention is paid to personal level and musical interests. He's able to explain the theoretical and practical side of drumming. And also very important, it's fun having drum lessons from Eddie!Jan 23, 2012
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My lessons are simply $20 per half hour. If you prefer a one hour lesson, it's $40. Because I don't teach at a store I'm able to charge $5-10 less per lesson. Stores charge the teachers a room fee. I don not have this. I also provide everything you need regarding materials at no charge. This includes lesson material, charts, audio recordings, video recording etc...
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I invite the student and the parent over for an evaluation. There, they get to meet me, see my home, my studio and also meet my family. I explain how I work, with the purpose of setting specific mutual expectations. I also question and evaluate the student and use the fact finding session to develop a long-term lesson plan using short term goals, long term goals focusing on the students desires.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended Knapp School of Music and studied with Skip Layton, I also studied with several private drummers/teachers when I was younger. I'm always self-studying currently via many sources.
