My 9yo son takes drum lessons from Neil and loves him as an instructor, motivator, and great person he is. Neil is clearly passionate about drumming and keeps us parents up to date on how things are progressing, even bringing his own equipment to play along, learn, and have fun. I can already see (hear) my son's progress after a few months, and plan to continue working with Neil for many years. Highly recommended!

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.

    I have taken guitar lessons from Chris for quite a while. He is a joy to work with and has developed his own customized approach to teaching. He is amazingly talented and makes learning easy and fun. Sadly I must keep my day job, but that isn't Chris's fault! Scott A.

    I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!

    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!

    I was in a restaurant a couple of years ago and recognized Warren as the drummer in a Black Sabbath cover band I had seen a couple of times. He mentioned he is teaching and initially I thought I'd ask him to help me with a couple of their songs. The lessons evolved into very helpful instruction on counting, rudiments, syncopation and general skills to improve my playing. He is an enthusiastic teacher and is very flexible with what we cover from lesson to lesson. I have definitely seen an improvement in my skills in the time we have worked together.

    I have been taking drum lessons with Eyal for two years. I have grown so much as a musician and as a person from my time with Eyal. He pushes me to practice and to love the drums, in a supportive, kind way. I can't thank him enough for how much he has helped me!

        Thanks Nate for the excellent lessons! Eric learned so much and was extremely confident transferring what he learned to his classroom band sessions. I chose Nate over Watermelon music because I wanted my son to be comfortable and have fun while learning. All of my son's 7th grade teachers are young, dynamic, engaging, and excited about teaching. Nate was exactly what I was searching for. He is extremely professional, knows his music, and is passionate about his teaching. I sincerely recommend him! Thanks again Nate!

        I have been with Otto for 2 months and an delighted with my progress. He is clearly a knowledgeable and skilled musician and teacher. He is building my drumming skills layer by layer. Each week I learn new techniques starting with the basics. As well, he shows patience and if I am puzzled he uses a different method to get the point across. I hold a master's degree and play another instrument so understand and recognize a good teacher.

          I've never been musically inclined, and he found the instrument that I could easily learn on, then taught me to play in terms even I could understand. Thanks Mike!

          Great instructor. Thorough and knowledgable. I played two drum beats on my first drum lesson and I had never played drums before. I progressed rapidly and after 6 months can comfortably play with a band.
