"I had my drum kit for about a year when I decided I wanted to take lessons. I was concerned I was developing bad habits and improper technique and had reached the point where I recognized to get better I needed professional help. By sheer luck I met Alan and when I found out he was a drum teacher I quickly asked him if he was available to give me lessons.
My instincts were right - I was doing almost EVERYTHING incorrectly and I had my drum kit set up wrong ! My progression was IMMEDIATE. After only a handful of lessons I have improved more in 2 months than I had after a year by trying to be self-taught !
I LOVE the way Alan teaches. He is so patient with me and his on site evaluation and guidance is spot-on. He is teaching me what kind of music I want to play ( we all want to be the next John Bonham ) and it is evident his method is WORKING !
Alan has a studio but he provides an in-home lesson option. THIS is perfect for me because I have both an acoustic kit and V-drums in my "Man Cave" and I feel more comfortable and familiar in this environment.
I give Alan's my highest recommendation and encourage anybody, no matter what skill level, to give themselves the opportunity to work with Alan. It will be one of the BEST moves you can make if you want to be a better musician.
