Introduction: My experience in music began in middle school band, continuing through high school and into college. I have been very fortunate to have many great teachers since I began playing music, including some of the top musicians in Los Angeles. The opportunity to learn from diverse artists introduced me to a wide variety of percussion instruments and styles under their instruction and guidance. Combining my professional experiences with the extensive training from these instructors has allowed me to become a good reference for just about anything in music. I offer private lessons to all ages and create lesson plans for each student to ensure personal and academic goals are met, and even surpassed, all while striving to make learning music fun and enjoyable.

Drum Lessons

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing," Socrates once said. This is a mindset I picked up when I was 19 years old, and it is the same one I had when I approached drumming lessons with Nolan. Despite my background in music, I learned a lot from him in such a short amount of time. His approach to drumming instruction is well thought out, he is patient, and his instructions are easy to understand.

Drum Lessons

The best! I have a 9 year old with drum experience, and a 10 year old with no experience. Both have been taking individual music with Nolan Wren for about 2 months and this is by far the biggest improvement I have ever seen in their musical ability! Additionally, he records the lessons so I am able to see, he sends me a weekly schedule reminder, and a daily reminder, and an easy online payment system. My kids laugh and talk with him, and he is very patient with them. A total win!

Drum Lessons

When I reached out for Drum lessons Nolan was one of the first persons to respond. And he was the first person to follow up to my request. I've had my first Drum Lesson and he is very knowledgeable and professional and teaches you in a way that you can understand. I am happy to have him as my drum teacher!

Drum Lessons

My son is really enjoying his drum lessons with Nolan and looks forward to them every week. He was able to help him through some band assignments he was having trouble with for school. He ended up getting 100 on all of them. Very happy with Nolan’s drum lessons.

He is currently teaching my two boys, and they LOVE him! They look forward to their lessons weekly. For any parent debating which person to go with, let me tell you that it’s Nolan’s Music. I researched four other companies and did trials with two others, and he's the one my kids wanted for various reasons! Thanks Nolan ;-)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    These rates are on a pay-per-lesson basis: - 30 minutes for $40 I currently offer two discounts: a monthly prepay discount and on online lesson discount. The rates after both are applied are: - 30 minutes for $35

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Each private lesson student is unique. Our approach each new student is to start with at their ability level, the pursuing the student's goals from there. This process creates a natural, individual, personal lesson plan in which the student learns to make music on their instrument, all while making the lessons fun and relevant to their personal goals.
