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.
I took drum lessons with Damien from the end of junior high school until the summer before I left for college and loved every minute of it! Damien's passion for music is contagious and his enthusiasm in our lessons encouraged me to explore music in a way that I had not expected. By incorporating my personal musical likes into his teaching style he created a comfortable atmosphere where I was not limited by self doubt. I miss our lessons and highly recommend him as a musical instructor.
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!!
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.
My children are both working with Mr. Frank weekly. He tailors the lessons to their skill level and age. What I like most is his professionalism and his amazing studio set up. He has made many custom tracks for my son and audio files of rehearsals that he uses at home to practice.
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!
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!
Very good instruction. I am a beginner at piano but the teacher instilled a lot of confidence in me.
Delightful young man. Accommodating schedule and a thoughtful teacher! Our son is enjoying his lessons and practicing them after. Thank you Efrain!
What can I say other than AMAZING! Steve is a professional, monster and powerful drummer. I was really impressed how patient he was and took the time to sit down with me and critique my technic. I saw a huge difference in my playing in just a few weeks. I would recommend him to anyone. It doesn't matter what style you play, rock, jazz or metal, beginner to professional. Steve is the guy to help take your playing to the next level.
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.
I'm an experienced middle school teacher, all ages and levels. Our lessons are fun and dynamic playing our favorite songs!
-I teach a variety of styles including Latin, Jazz, pop and rock, and percussion(such as timpani, mallets, snare, etc....) -I teach with the philosophy of following the path of the student vs. the student following the path of the instructor
I play the drums for Black Flag and now have a break from tour. I'm available for anything drum related, including lessons, session work, shows, etc. I have been teaching drums and guitar lessons for 5 years. The following are some of my experience: * Touring: - Black Flag -- 2014 - Stone Sour (opening band) -- 2014 * A few of the producers I've worked with include the following: - CJ Eriksson, 2013 (Credits -- U2, Incubus, Matchbox 20) - Dave Fortman, 2013 (Credits -- Slipknot, Godsmack, and Evanescence) - Ethan Kaufmann, 2013 (Credits -- Avril Lavigne) - Greg Ginn, 2014 (Credits -- Black Flag)
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. Marks 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 Marks ability to tap into his students desire to play drums, keeping it fun while he helps them move towards mastery of the instrument.

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.
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.
