Neil has been awesome and I have learned so much since I started taking drum lessons with Neil about a year ago. I had been a recreational drummer for many years but was lacking guidance to take my drumming to the next level. Neil has a great program that focuses on reading music, playing rudiments and learning various drum beats for rock, funk and more. Neil also play bass, which has been a great accompaniment for practice sessions. In addition, Neil has given me great insights into practicing better with my band, tips for playing live and how to become a better musician in general. Very highly recommended!!
I'm an intermediate level drummer who was seeking lessons to help bring my playing to the next level and I found Brian Fruechtenicht here on thumbtack. I have to say, having taken drum lessons before that this experience has been unlike any other. Brian's novel approach may seem unorthodox if you come into lessons with any preconceived notion of what drum lessons should be like, however his unique take on them (not to mention his enthusiasm) really conveys a lot of the practical knowledge that helps change good drummers into great drummers. In my own drumming, I feel like my style had become rote, but Brian helped me find more creativity behind the kit. I play for a band and I have to say even that sounds leagues better since beginning lessons with Brian Fruechtenicht, and those lessons tend to be some of the most fun I have all week. Brian Fruechtenicht gets a high recommendation from me!
I started lessons with Andrew in June 2014 . I myself is a seasoned bassist and guitarist for 35 years, I needed to take drum lessons because I frequently have to cover on a drumset in a church band ,I have basic skills but I wanted to learn the right techniques . I am pleased with Andrews teaching methods he observes what the student needs to work on and assigns exercises that aids to improve drumming skills , he is enthusiastic , professional and fun to work with I highly recommend him for all skill levels.
I strongly recommend Diego as an excellent professor of piano, who really motivates students to develop their ability. He gave piano lessons to my older daughter for more than 5 years since she was in high school, until some months ago. I am very grateful to Diego for encouraging Almudena, my daughter, to find a way of expressing herself through music.
Kevin has helped me grow from not knowing how to play drums at all, to being able to play in a rock and roll band and knowing how to lead a band on drums. He has taught me technique and tools for creativity in my art. He is very patient and laid back.
Matthias has been giving my son drum lessons for almost 5 years. He is an outstanding teacher and knows just the way to relate to young people and keep them interested. He is also a terrific drummer.
Art gave drum lessons to my then 9 year old daughter. He was great! He was always punctual, came prepared, was patient with her, kept it fun and gave good, clear homework assignments. I highly recommend him.
I just finished my first lesson with Ward and he was great! He made me feel instantly comfortable. It's clear he knows what he's doing and shows incredible passion for it. He was both directive and supportive, a combination I desperately need when learning the drums. I highly recommend him!
My son started drum lessons with Larry yesterday and he is so happy! Larry is a great drummer and a great teacher! HE was also very responsive when I initially contacted him and we had the lesson started the very next day! He even helped me by bringing a drum set my son could try out ..I highly recommend Larry
Mike was an excellent teacher of the drums and I highly recommend him to anyone starting to learn how to drum. He is skilled in conga drums along with standard kits.
Henry Reed is a very good drum teacher. He has been working with my son for 6 months now and we have seen incredible progress. He is patience and very informative in his lessons. I highly recommend using him.
Steve is a skilled drummer and heartfelt teacher. Each lesson has taken me around the world in music and given me a chance to try a variety of drums. Steve encourages self expression and has a vast knowledge of music theory. I recommend him highly
I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!
Thomas is great with the kids. So focused on them and enthusiastic. My son, who has not liked music or playing an instrument, recently signed up with Thomas for drumming lessons. He's like a new kid. LOVES it!
I have been with Otto for 2 months and an delighted with my progress. He is clearly a knowledgeable and skilled musician and teacher. He is building my drumming skills layer by layer. Each week I learn new techniques starting with the basics. As well, he shows patience and if I am puzzled he uses a different method to get the point across. I hold a master's degree and play another instrument so understand and recognize a good teacher.

Have drum lessons with Bob Danielson, a seasoned teacher-performer. I've been teaching privately, beginners through professionals, for over 25 years. I am a professional drummer with a music studio in San Francisco. I'm well-versed in a wide variety of musical styles, have a long history in the music business, and a strong understanding of music theory, all of which serve me well as a drum instructor. Your lesson can be a half hour or one hour in length, it's up to you. For a beginner, for the first several lessons, I'll show you how to practice without a drum set, as you decide if drumming is for you. I have excellent references, gladly provided upon request. Thanks for considering me, Bob
