Neil has been awesome and I have learned so much since I started taking drum lessons with Neil about a year ago. I had been a recreational drummer for many years but was lacking guidance to take my drumming to the next level. Neil has a great program that focuses on reading music, playing rudiments and learning various drum beats for rock, funk and more. Neil also play bass, which has been a great accompaniment for practice sessions. In addition, Neil has given me great insights into practicing better with my band, tips for playing live and how to become a better musician in general. Very highly recommended!!

I have been seeing Kenny for adult guitar lessons. He really is an amazing teacher. Having no musical experience in the past I was pretty apprehensive about taking lessons, but after meeting with Kenny and listening to his instruction I felt much more confident and look forward to working with him in the future.

I highly recommend music lessons with Leonid at Percussion Player. He is a dedicated and skilled teacher with an extremely impressive professional resume. You can tell that Leonid is passionate about both music and teaching. He brings his insight and humor to his teaching style, and he makes sure to keep me challenged, but never discouraged. He can teach every musical style imaginable, but especially encourages me to learn music that I personally enjoy. His teaching style incorporates a perfect balance of technique, theory, and performance. Whenever he models an excerpt from the piece we are working on, I am inspired by his artistry and expressivity. The studio is another bonus. I've been to other studios, and compared with them, this one is seriously impressive! There are two drum sets, a xylophone, assorted hand drums, and a piano -- all of which Leonid is equally qualified to teach.

I’ve taken multiple drum lessons with Cole over the last few years, not consistently but just whenever I have the time. He has been incredibly helpful and supportive while also recognizing that I can’t take lessons weekly and tailoring the lessons I do get infrequently to be as constructive and useful as possible. A+

Art gave drum lessons to my then 9 year old daughter. He was great! He was always punctual, came prepared, was patient with her, kept it fun and gave good, clear homework assignments. I highly recommend him.

Joe is a great teacher and a wonderful mentor. I have taken lessons from him since 2014 and he has taught me many lessons about drumming but also lessons about life and how to become a better musician. He is very kind and willing to help you in any way he can. If you are searching to start drumset for the very first time or you are looking to fine-tune your skills, he is the person to go to. Each lesson I learn something new and they can be structured around something I need to improve on or something brand new that I would like to learn. I truly believe that he is THE BEST drum teacher I have ever had.

Thomas is naturally at ease with children which makes them comfortable with him! He makes the lessons fun and is creative in his pedagogy. My son looks forward to his lessons every week and is progressing along nicely. Lastly, Thomas is vey professional, reliable, and an excellent communicator. I strongly recommend him for any family looking to bring music into their child's life!

I'm an intermediate level drummer who was seeking lessons to help bring my playing to the next level and I found Brian Fruechtenicht here on thumbtack. I have to say, having taken drum lessons before that this experience has been unlike any other. Brian's novel approach may seem unorthodox if you come into lessons with any preconceived notion of what drum lessons should be like, however his unique take on them (not to mention his enthusiasm) really conveys a lot of the practical knowledge that helps change good drummers into great drummers. In my own drumming, I feel like my style had become rote, but Brian helped me find more creativity behind the kit. I play for a band and I have to say even that sounds leagues better since beginning lessons with Brian Fruechtenicht, and those lessons tend to be some of the most fun I have all week. Brian Fruechtenicht gets a high recommendation from me!

Ward is very helpful in helping me properly learn how to maneuver different styles to playing drums. He's very encouraging and made me feel very comfortable playing at my own pace. He's very mature, and experienced- I'm very delighted in having him as a Drum Teacher!
