This guy knows his stuff!! Been taking drum lessons and jazz piano technique sessions with Josh and I couldn't be more impressed with the amount I've learned so quickly. I'm looking forward to studying regularly with him! Super kind dude and loves to help his students understand these difficult concepts.

Victor made learning drums a really fun experience for me. I have trouble motivating myself to practice, but he found songs that I really enjoyed playing. I found myself wanting to practice every day, instead of it feeling like a chore. He was also good at explaining concepts in a way that I understood. Thanks Victor!

Bernie has been a great drum teacher for my two daughters. He is dedicated, committed, fun and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start. A big plus for Bernie, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and he is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed, as their attention and focus shifts. I fully recommend him for Drum lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

Working with Drew was an overall great experience. Drew is very attentive, patient and thorough. He was very encouraging and gave gentle reminders to stay relaxed, take deep breaths, not beat myself up when I made small mistakes, and to just groove and feel the music rather than overthink it. His lesson flowed perfectly and I must say that my over all favorite part of the lesson was drumming along side Drew and watching his expertise and light shine! I would happily recommend Drew to anyone serious about learning to play and love the drums!

For me, it was the simple things that Kyle taught me during my lessons with him that enhanced my playing. The importance of timing and playing with the track and not against the track. Tools and knowledge for life!

Nothing but good things to say about Ron and his drum lessons. Punctual, knowledgeable, and really tailors his lessons to each student. Would recommend 100%, lucky to have found him. If you've come this far, don't hesitate to book a lesson, you won't regret it.

Tim is an excellent drum teacher! His rates are very reasonable. He's been teaching my 9 year old daughter for 8 months and she's learned so much in that time. Tim is her 2nd drum teacher and I'm very happy with his teaching style. He's professional and personable, easy to talk to, and accommodating to schedule changes.

About

I am a drum and drum set instructor living in San Clemente. I give beginner to advanced-level drum and drum set lessons to anyone with a thirst for such knowledge in the southern Orange County area. I have performed a drum set in many different settings, including marching bands (snare, bass drums, tenor drums, and cymbals) rock acts, jazz, pop/cover acts, etc. I have been playing in a professional setting for 7 years. I have been playing drums and the drum set for 15 years and counting, and I'm loving every minute of it. I pride myself on giving my students a highly personal experience. I intend to lead any prospective student on a path, where they can take the fundamentals of drumming (rudiments and musicality) and use that to analyze the work of other drummers through listening and/or transcribing, and then take that experience and apply it creatively to any setting.

About

I'm a private drum teacher specializing in children ages 7 and up. My program is a fool proof method of what I call "break down to build up" meaning that we strip the drum set down to just the snare drum and we learn each drum one at a time. So that we are not overwhelmed with the whole drum set all at once. I'm in the business of building strong self esteem, so let's get to drumming. If you cant come to my studio in vista then I will come to you especially if you have other children. If you don't have drums I will provide my own until you can afford your own.

About

With over 35 years of drum instruction experience, hundreds of students from ages 6 to 50+ years with experience ranging from beginner to seasoned-pro. Mark has a proven tract record with lessons tailored to meet the students’ needs. Mark is patient, organized and results oriented. Mark’s style of teaching is relaxed and incorporates years of experience. His years of teaching have given him an understanding that people learn differently and no two students are exactly alike. What this means is that lessons are tailored to each student in order to meet them at their level of ability and comprehension. Students may lean towards being more Visual Learners, Auditory Learners, Kinesthetic Learners or a combination thereof which is what makes drumming a fantastic vehicle to increasing brain function. As is said, "Neurons that fire together, wire together." For example: Mark employs having a student read drum notation while singing and playing the rhythm on the drum set. Perhaps more importantly is Mark’s ability to tap into his student’s desire to play drums, keeping it fun while he helps them move towards mastery of the instrument.
