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'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!
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 strongly recommend Diego as an excellent professor of piano, who really motivates students to develop their ability. He gave piano lessons to my older daughter for more than 5 years since she was in high school, until some months ago. I am very grateful to Diego for encouraging Almudena, my daughter, to find a way of expressing herself through music.
It would have been nice to have more information about the actual teacher who would be coming to the house. I took it on blind faith that he was a good teacher and a normal person. There was no resume or bio or picture or anything. Turns out, Adam seems great (2 lessons so far). But more info would have been helpful.
Matthias has been giving my son drum lessons for almost 5 years. He is an outstanding teacher and knows just the way to relate to young people and keep them interested. He is also a terrific drummer.
Henry Reed is a very good drum teacher. He has been working with my son for 6 months now and we have seen incredible progress. He is patience and very informative in his lessons. I highly recommend using him.
I had my first drum lesson with Mike Hoffmann today. He is a very professional and I had also fun learning from him. He is excellent and I am happy. Ping Haas
Warren was super responsive, extremely patient, was great to talk to and structured the lessons really well for us to have a great time but also learn more. Would love to do this again with Warren!
Jeff is a great teacher that has so much patience and talent for his students. He tailors his interactions with our kids based on their interests and abilities and set up realistic practice goals at home. I feel very lucky to have found Jeff to teach my boys drums. Highly recommending Jeff to anyone who is looking for a talented, passionate, and patience teacher.
Thomas is a wonderful music teacher! He makes the lessons fun for the kids, and teaches in a style I wish I had learned when I was young. He teaches them the traditional notes, etc. but also teaches ear training, music theory, and rhythm (sometimes with drums). He's a great teacher for the entire family, for new students, and for experienced students. He has been teaching our family for the past year and we are so thankful we found him!
I have been a student of Seinin’s for the past 8 years and she has been a great instructor and friend. She is very knowledgeable in every about drum kits, cymbals, drum sticks and all the other accessories drums come with. She also has drum lessons that teach kids sight reading and music theory. She will always give you the best advice and tools for whatever you need. Seinin is second to none in her field of drums!
Mike was an excellent teacher of the drums and I highly recommend him to anyone starting to learn how to drum. He is skilled in conga drums along with standard kits.
I’m a drummer for a rock band and a student of Otto Huber. I have been able to improve in several needed areas on my overall drumming with Otto as my drum instructor. He has given me a personalized and focused instruction in specific areas to improve my technique & skill. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced drummer, and combined with his professional approach to instruction, has allowed me to overcome some personal barriers and challenges I’ve had. In addition I’ve become much more confident and focused around the kit. I’ve been able to offer more drumming flexibility and sound to my rock band.
Steve is a skilled drummer and heartfelt teacher. Each lesson has taken me around the world in music and given me a chance to try a variety of drums. Steve encourages self expression and has a vast knowledge of music theory. I recommend him highly
Great drum instructor! Really focuses on getting timing down. Kevin does not waste time during the lesson. I hear drums for the whole hour!
Watching people progress in their relationship to life through music, and introducing people to new sounds and instruments they never knew existed.
I am a drummer with over 10-plus years of experience in all music types. I have experiences in several bands and can teach all levels (beginners to advanced).
Hey, folks! I'm Nick, a touring and recording drummer from Oakland who has played and still plays all around the world. Drumming is my favorite thing to do. Check out my super extensive music resume at my website. I teach drums privately in my Oakland studio, at some of my students' homes, at the School of Rock at both of the Bay Area locations in San Francisco and San Mateo (these kids are amazing!), I teach as a substitute at the Academy of Language and Music Arts in Orinda, CA, and is exploring music in San Jose. I don't believe in one-size-fits-all music teaching. With that in mind, I tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs and interests. We start with the kind of music that you love most, and we slowly work outward from there, expanding the concepts. I've played and taught jazz (everything, from swing to seriously advanced Elvin Jones and Tony Williams' jazz drumming), hip-hop, R&B, indie rock, metal (blast beats and double bass), Afro-Beat (Gnawa rhythms, etc.), Southern Indian music, experimental and improvised playing, etc. We'll work on whatever you really want to do. Do you want to just learn the basics? Okay! Do you want to learn to play for fun in a garage band? Great! Do you want to be the next drummer for Slayer? Awesome! Do you want to learn drums, so you can produce better hip-hop beats on your MPC? Let's do it!
Tom Metropoulos, drum instructor in San Mateo, Bay Area, California, is offering lessons at San Mateo Piano,
Have drum lessons with Bob Danielson, a seasoned teacher-performer. I've been teaching privately, beginners through professionals, for over 25 years. I am a professional drummer with a music studio in San Francisco. I'm well-versed in a wide variety of musical styles, have a long history in the music business, and a strong understanding of music theory, all of which serve me well as a drum instructor. Your lesson can be a half hour or one hour in length, it's up to you. For a beginner, for the first several lessons, I'll show you how to practice without a drum set, as you decide if drumming is for you. I have excellent references, gladly provided upon request. Thanks for considering me, Bob
