Jesse is a fantastic teacher! I've been working with him for 4 months and I have learned so much. I had very little percussion experience, but he is patient and explains things very well. He motivates me and gives me constructive feedback every lesson. I highly recommend Jesse for beginners and those with experience!

Jesse has been teaching our 6-year-old son drums for a few months now. We are very happy with the results. Our son is making progress every week and is excited about his lessons. He started with zero experience and can now confidently read notes and play multiple beats. Jesse is able to present material in a fun and digestible, especially for a child who often has hard time sitting still and staying attentive. We would absolutely recommend Jesse for young beginner drum lessons!

Taking lessons from Jesse was a great idea. I played a little before but learning a real method behind music opens up a new world to learn in. Awesome teacher.

Working with Jesse has been great. Very informative in my lessons. Provides concepts and material that will my help my career as a drummer as musician. I feel comfortable taking instruction and truly believe I can grow as a drummer working with him. I highly recommend no matter your skill level. You can definitely gain some insight taking lessons
