Guitar and drum lessons. James is amazing. Personable, easy going, and professional. Teaches according to student's abilities and desires. Can learn any song you want to learn and then show you in a manner you can handle.
I was, no, am so impressed with every aspect of Mr. Snydman's lessons. Need I say more? Yes! In addition to his musical knowledge, he is a genuinely kind caring person.
I have taken guitar lessons from Kim for many years. Not only is she an amazing guitarist who provided expert guidance but she was able to help me move from a basic beginner status to new levels in chord progression and improvisational technique. I highly recommend her lessons for an anyone with an interest in learning more about playing the guitar and music in general.
Damien is truly a wonderful music instructor! He is very knowledgeable in music and I'm so glad I was able take drum lessons from Damien!!
Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!
I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!
Zeth was my son’s drum teacher for 2 years in New Jersey. He was so sad when Zeth moved to California. My son loved his lessons with Zeth...he had a way of incorporating fun into his instruction, and my son grew to have a passion for drums. Zeth and his wife also became trusted family friends who would babysit, housesit, and pet sit for us. You will be in good hands with Zeth, he’s a great guy and an awesome musician!
I've been taking drum lessons with JJ via Skype for almost two months now and LOVE IT! First, I absolutely love the convenience of the Skype Lessons. It's so easy to schedule and coordinate and is just as effective as an in person lesson- even more so since we can both access and share emails/files/videos/lesson plans so quickly! By just angling my laptop, she can see and hear everything I'm doing and is able to easily advise on technique. Plus, there's just somehow less pressure than having someone physically in the room with you, and I feel more comfortable to experiment, make mistakes, then learn. Second, aside from the tech aspect of it, JJ is an amazing teacher! She really tailors lessons to you as an individual based on your goals, skill level, schedule, tastes, and how you work best. She always has drills and lessons ready to go, but is completely adaptable when something different comes up that you might want/need to work on. Everything she teaches is incredibly practical and well thought out to ensure the best, most effective learning process possible. Plus, it's so fun! JJ is patient, encouraging, enthusiastic, and everything you'd want in a drum teacher. I feel like I am flying in how quickly I've progressed in just a few weeks, and it's all thanks to JJ!!
Efrein is teaching me theroy and steel pan drum. Hes very patient with my learning skills. I am learning quicker then I thought I would. I would recommend him because he is very knowledgeable in music. jh
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
My 5 year old takes drumming lessons. The instructor is patient and encouraging to him. He has a great command of the instrument and his students. My 5 year old can read music after a summer of practice.
Geo is a very good drummer with a great attitude!!! I took lessons with him for over two years and thoroughly enjoyed my time. He has a cool approach to the drum kit that makes you look comfortable and relaxed when playing. He is experienced and knows how to quickly help you where you lack. He is patient and nice! Highly recommended for both experienced players and beginners!
Michael has a very straight forward approach to teaching. Whether it was answering a technique question or developing new ways to manuever around the set, each lesson consisted of my thoroughly learning new information in a practical and very efficient manner. Being a percussionist myself, we naturally have good rapport with the language we communicate with. Michael's way of personal interaction alongside his instrument is certainly one of the best forays into any practice and study of music, for those just starting or already proficient.
I signed up for some drum lessons with Aly. I am an adult student and was a little bit apprehensive about seeking instruction. I wanted to focus on playing traditional grip and jattempt to get my chops back to where they were 20 years ago. I'm glad I decided to sign up. Aly is not only a talented musician, but she is also a sincere and sweet person. Her lessons are encouraging, motivating, and fun. I look forward to our sessions. I would recommend her for any age. If you are s parent and thinking about taking your child to her for lessons, I cannot recommend her enough.
Frank is a great teacher. I have progressed in my drum skills since working with him.
My son Prahalad had taken piano lessons with Cesar Canocelis before we moved to Northern California. Prahalad started out as a complete beginner and within a year, he was playing some beautiful pieces. Cesar is engaging, energetic and very good with kids. He has a good sense for what each child will enjoy and how each child learns. Prahalad always looked forward to his lessons and stayed interested in piano throughout. Cesar focussed on technique, skill and theory while cultivating a genuine love for the instrument in the child. Prahalad still loves to play the piano, thanks to Cesar and the wonderful foundation he gave him!
I've been taking lessons from Steve for quite a few months now. From the beginning, Steve has put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. He is always precise and makes sure that I understand what we are doing before we move on. I also appreciate that he allows me to practise in his studio on equipment that he provides. In general I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and feel as if I have improved a lot. I thank Steve for being patient and a good teacher.
Every Friday I'm at GoDpsMusic for my drum lesson. Definitely my favorite day of the week! The atmosphere is excellent! The acoustic and electronic drum kits in the lesson studios are the best. If you want to schedule a lesson or purchase equipment, I strongly recommend GoDpsMusic. Kevin, Brendan, Bryan, Steve and Robbie are the "go-to" guys at GoDpsMusic.

I am 27 years old and have been playing both the drums and guitar for as long as I can remember. I took lessons myself for several years, and I would like to pass my knowledge on.

I act on a one to one basis. Treating each person as an individual with specific needs and abilities. So wether its drum kit lessons where i work on your favorite styles of music. To the deeper drum workshops geared to help people at different stages in life. Then deeper still with the gong and tuning fork work. Which is specific for each person as we all vibrate in a different way.

I personalize my lesson plans around the individual. This helps the musician stand out when entering a situation where they would be playing with others..
