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!

I was brand new to guitar when I started lessons with Richard. He is great at taking things at the pace you need and being patient with a new student. He is also very flexible with schedule and length of lessons, so you can work lessons into a busy schedule. His knowledge of music theory was evident in his instruction, and he imparted this information at appropriate times as I learned the practical side of playing. I enjoyed our lessons, as I felt like I made progress, but they were fun at the same time. Richard is very receptive of your input and the direction you want lessons to go. He'll focus on what you want to learn and the songs you want to learn. Overall, I was impressed with his skill and ability to teach, and would highly recommend him!

I began taking drum lessons from Bryan a couple of years ago shortly after my then 12 year old son began taking drum lessons from him. So, I know from experience that Bryan is an excellent teacher of both kids and adults. He is extremely easy going and lessons are relaxed and fun. Bryan doesn't follow a rote lesson plan; lessons are more organic as Bryan tailors his lessons to lead his students to achieve their goals at any given point, whether they include playing particular beats, fills, songs or styles of music, becoming a more skilled drummer or performing in a band. Bryan's depth of knowledge of many varied musical styles facilitates his students' exploration of different beats. The slow downer app he uses to slow the tempo of recorded songs while not distorting the sound makes working to master a particular beat, fill or song more possible and hence, more enjoyable and rewarding. I love that Bryan has two kits in the studio. As a visual learner, it is instructive for me to watch him demonstrate whatever we are working on. And to have him play along with me is just a blast! When my son and I first started taking lessons with Bryan, we purchased an acoustic drum kit from The Drummer's Den. Later, Bryan directed us in the purchase of a terrific electronic drum kit. More recently, Bryan has helped me to acquire some better cymbals for the acoustic kit. I can say without reservation that Bryan will offer you a great price on whatever equipment you are interested in without a hint of trying to sell you something you don't want or need. On top of that, he will tune your drums if (like me) you can't.

I've been taking lessons with Lou for around 4 years and he is great. It got me out of sticking to one style of music and becoming more open to jazz, Latin, and other styles of music which have helped me become a better player in jazz band at school. I would defiantly check out taking lessons at drum chops, you start our simple and move one to more advanced stuff.

Alex has really made an impression on my 7 yo son and he has only had two lessons. He practices guitar nearly every day and is showing me how to play without getting my thumb lasered off. (This is apparently what happens if one’s thumb is visible above the neck). Alex is very good with my son even though his attention span is short. He is showing him the correct way to hold and play the guitar and my son is really enjoying the lessons. So far, Alex has been very conscientious and reliable. I would certainly recommend him as a guitar instructor.

Jim has been an excellent teacher for my 2 seven-year old boys. He is very methodical, each lesson building on the previous lessons. I am a musician (piano, trumpet, trombone) so I appreciate that Jim is teaching my boys how to be musicians, not just showing them how to beat the drums. At first I was skeptical about the need for an hour-long lesson, but now I know that there is an awful lot to being a true drummer. I highly recommend Jim to anyone, young or old, looking to learn how to play the drums.

Matt has been an amazing resource in his teaching methods. I am new to drumming completely and Matt was able to give me the tools to build a solid foundation of proper techniques. He really focused on what methods could improve my current progress. Thank you Matt!

About

Hello! After studying drumset performance at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, I have recently relocated to Phoenix, Arizona to begin teaching and performing. I first began studying percussion and drumset over eight years ago; since then, I have performed in major venues and festivals including the Monterey Jazz Festival (California), Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Umbria Jazz Festival (Italy), Frederick P. Rose Hall (New York City), and Carnegie Hall (New York City). Additionally, I have performed with notable artists such as Brice Winston, Charles McPherson, Ray Drummond, and Jason Carder. I have had extensive experience performing and teaching many styles of music including jazz, rock, hip hop, and latin. However, I am just as enthusiastic about teaching beginners the basic fundamentals of percussion and the drumset. My home studio, located just off of 46th St. and Chandler Blvd. in Ahwatukee, is fully equipped with two drumsets and other teaching materials. But I will commute to students' homes/studios for lessons, if requested. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

I am one person teaching multiple children on multiple instruments. I get siblings to play music together and absolutely love it. I have abundant proof of typical results that i get at the website provided. I have many, many more youtube channels filled with my students videos. Getting one child to play numerous instruments is my forte.

About

My name is Zachary Smith. I'm a 22-year-old Arizona native, and I have been learning and playing music since I was about 10 years old. I have a superior ear for this hobby that I've grown to love so much! I have played the trumpet, drums and guitar (strings) well enough to teach others sufficiently regardless of playing level and have played piano, sax, flute and french horn well enough to teach someone in their beginning years.

About

I am providing drum lessons to ages 7 and up. I have been teaching for 5 years. I have cheap prices for the lesson you will receive. You will be playing a beat in two weeks. Call me.

About

Lot's of pint up energy and loves the bang on things, if that's your kid then what better then start them with drum lessons. I am a 15 year experienced drummer (studio, live, and all practice situations) ready to give your child lessons to hopefully start them on a path to musical success. I specialize in kids from 5-12, because I have 5 brothers and sisters under the age 7. All you need is sticks and a pad and I'll do the rest. Let's start your son or daughter soon.

About

I offer drum lessons. I've been teaching students of all ages, from beginner to advanced, drawing from my many years of professional experience in the studio and live playing as well as touring. We combine what the student is interested in (more so for advanced) and what they need work on. To get you playing with less effort, more control, better ideas, on top of a very solid groove, I am using traditional books and years of teaching experience. I also offer music lessons, covering beginning piano. The student learns how to read and play notes, rhythms, chords, melodies and scales. I also teach bass guitar. The students will learn to read rhythms, notes on instrument and scales, approach to good technique, articulation and read tab and standard music.

About

I have been playing and making music for 11 years now and want to pass on my skills to other people who have the same passion that I do. Along with music, I also swim and work as a lifeguard, and I have all the certifications needed to keep you safe in and around pool.
