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.
My son Max has been taking drum lessons from Blake for almost a year. He hit the ground running from day one, teaching the basics including reading music which I believe every musician should know. Blake's methods and personality have made drum lessons enjoyable and Max looks forwarded to his weekly sessions. I would absolutely recommend Blake to anyone interested in learning to play the drums.
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!!
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
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!!
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! :)
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 loves his drum lessons with Chris. We moved to Orange County in January from Seattle. My son loved his drum teacher there, so we knew it would be difficult finding someone my son connected with. We went in for a trial lesson about a month ago and have since taken about 3 lessons and my son absolutely loves it. We are so happy we found Chris at the Dynamic Drum School and definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent teacher.
Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!
I’d been wanting to learn how to play drums since high school but just never got around to it. A friend recommended Geo highly and I finally bit the bullet and started lessons. I am so glad I did!!! Geo is such a great teacher — really patient, and responsive to my needs as a student. I work full time and Geo is always flexible. I am also not as young as I used to be and not a fast learner, but Geo is super patient and is always coming up with exercises and pieces to learn that are more my speed. He’s also so fun and just a cool dude — 10/10 recommend!!!
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.
My grandson took lessons on the drums from Dave which were really great. He became a very good drummer but James also became interested in the keyboard and guitar, so along with his drum lessons Dave would give him beginner lessons on the other instruments which gave James an even greater love for music. Dave has a great way with his students and is available to the parents that may have questions or concerns. Many times Dave went above and beyond what was required of him. James has had a very positive experience with Dave and I would highly recommend him to any body that wants to learn drums.
Henry Newmark is an INCREDIBLE drum set teacher and mentor. Henry attended the Berklee School of Music, Henry's approach is precise and professional. Henry is the REAL deal and his instruction is phenomenal. You or your child will absolutely be learning proper technique as well as music theory. Henry is a perfectionist in the best way possible. My son took lessons once or twice a week with Henry for 5 years straight. Not only did my son look forward to his lessons every week, but he went from being a beginning student to now being a freshman percussion major at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. Henry taught my son drum set, orchestral and snare drumming, and jazz drum set. There is NO WAY my son would be where he is today without Henry. Henry is also very kind and has a great sense of humor. There is no better drum teacher then Henry Newmark. If you want to learn how to play the drums, he is your guy without a doubt.
Over the years I've had many drum instructors, but Randy is the only one that I've stayed with. He is top notch and I can't recommend him enough whether you're a beginner or experienced player. Randy's expertise is in jazz, but he can play and teach any genre including latin, rock, and afro cuban. I can ask him for guidance on how to approach any song and he'll help me with both technical and conceptual ideas. His support has helped me become a more confident and musical drummer.
Lucas has given guitar lessons to our son (now age 9) for a few years & added drums about 8 months ago. His progression has been amazing. Lucas has been both professional & flexible...perfect for our busy multi-kid schedule. Our son really enjoyed having him as a teacher!!!
Ty became my instructor from a referral. Along with his extensive experience he brings a very patient and fun atmosphere. He taught me to play my favorite song in the 1st month. Highly recommended!
I'm an experienced middle school teacher, all ages and levels. Our lessons are fun and dynamic playing our favorite songs! Proud of my students and how fast they learn. Always learning from them as well.
With over 10 years of teaching experience and over 15 years of performance experience, I will help you get your drumming to the next level -- whether it's drum set, marching percussion or Latin percussion. I will help you not only become a better "drummer" but an overall better musician. I can also help you with music notation because I strongly believe it's a must for any musician.
Being a seasoned drum student at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood CA, I know what it takes to truly play your best. Having learned from some of the best and most respected players in drums, I have been able to hone my drumming ability into something very special. I am well versed in many different drumming styles and can help a student reach their percussive goals. Videos will be up soon!

I have a lot of experience with many levels and abilities of playing, and have taught free lance and with multiple programs. The freedom that it brings and the inspiration.
