Browse these drum lessons for kids with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Hawthorne.
We found Sid on Thumbtack and he has been giving guitar lessons to myself and my two kids for last 18 months. He is super great with the kids and an awesome teacher. Would highly recommend.
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 have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
Stefano is a great teacher! I started taking drum lessons as an adult who'd always wanted to learn drums but had no experience. Stefano makes sure to work at your pace, finding the balance between pushing you to grow while ensuring you grasp everything and are actively improving and understanding. He also dives right into your favorite music making practicing fun and satisfying from the very start.
Alex is patience and funny! I had lots of fun on my first lessons and he understand if you are a total beginner which I appreciate! Looking forward to another lesson, 100% recommend! :)
GREAT DRUM TEACHER! I HAVE A BLAST EVERY SINGLE TIME I GO TO MY LESSON !!!!!
My son has been taking drum lessons from Damien for the past 8 years now. Damien plays many instruments including drums, guitar, and bass. He is always a professional. He walks the students out after each lesson to say a quick hello to the parent. He is always well dressed and treats each lesson as important. He is an extremely talented musician and I'm so happy we found him. My son still looks forward to seeing him each week after all these years, and really has become a great drummer under Damien's instruction.
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!!
I've been taking lessons from Matthew for about a year now. The amount I have progressed is crazy. Last year I was playing 4/4 beats along to weezer and now I can play Tom Sawyer from start to finish. What's really cool about Matthew is that he concentrates on technique rather than fancy fills, although he is capable of teaching both. The technique is what's ultimately going to get me work in the long run though. He is constantly improving himself as well as teaching me things he learns along the way. Very easy to work with and easily the most hilarious person I know. If you're looking for drum lessons, look no further. He's not cheap but has worked with me on his hourly rate. Remember, you get what you pay for.
Rachel is giving guitar lessons to my 8 year old daughter. She is very nice, professional and talented. My daughter really enjoys her lessons and we look forward to continuing on with Rachel. Thank you!
Delightful young man. Accommodating schedule and a thoughtful teacher! Our son is enjoying his lessons and practicing them after. Thank you Efrain!
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.
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.
We are so lucky to have met such an outstanding, caring and friendly music teacher. Kelly Apgar and her wonderful array of instructors make music lessons fun and enjoyable for my three daughters, who take piano, guitar and, voice lessons. Within months of taking music lessons, my daughters were reading music and playing songs! An added benefit to working with Elite Musique is that they prepare students for passing the Royal School of Music exams. Kelly and her staff are nurturing and patient with their students. Kids learn how to play an instrument while developing the love of music!
Steve is an excellent teacher with vast knowledge of drum techniques and styles. He is a very relatable and friendly person who has a method of teaching that can work with almost any student. We are still doing lessons and I am thoroughly enjoying each one.
Frank is an amazing instructor. He is very personal, inspiring and talented. He has the on going experience of playing professionally at many shows. He makes his lessons fun and really helps to get his students to continuously improve their skills. He has been my son’s favorite instructor. I highly recommend him.
My son began taking drum lessons with Lindsay via skype at 6 years old. He will be 9 next month and is still loving his drum lessons. He has learned so much in such a short period of time. Not only is Lindsay clearly a skilled drummer but is also an apt teacher. She is patient while pushing my son to improve his skills. I know from personal experience that learning an instrument can be frustrating to the point that the student will want to give up. This is especially true for a kid. Lindsay understands this and has the ability to balance progress with patience. I highly recommend Lindsay as a drum teacher!
Mike is a true professional in every sense of the word. His extensive knowledge and skill of his craft is extraordinary!!! A pleasure to work with ! Highly recommended!!!
We love having Brian Griffin as a drum/percussion teacher. My son began lessons as a young elementary student, and Brian was able to engage him immediately by creating lessons around the music he was drawn to. Over the years Brian's teaching continually evolved with my son's interests and focus. There has always been an excellent rapport between them, while maintaining the dynamic of student/teacher relationship. Brian has always shown a high level of professionalism, he's always engaged and enthusiastic, and my son has developed not only in the mechanics of percussion but also what it means to be part of an ensemble and just an overall well-rounded musician. We are grateful for his years of instruction and support.
Michael is an excellent teacher and knows about many percussion instruments, not just drums. He makes learning fun and engaging. He's also very patient with kids.
