Blake is not only an extremely talented drum player, he is also very knowledgeable of the contemporary music industry! He's always quick to help and support his students in any way he can. He is an incredibly kind, patient, fun, and encouraging teacher!! Every lesson is a pleasure with him and I highly recommend learning from Blake :)Nov 1, 2016Verified
When I started looking for a drum teacher, I decided to look via Thumbtack. Blake replied to my posting right away, and I saw him for our first lesson shortly after. Blake is very encouraging and great at explaining/demonstrating. Overall he's a great teacher and I'm glad I found him so easily! I've been taking lessons with him for almost a year and a half, but now via Skype lessons after I moved again. Would recommend him to anyone.Mar 1, 2015Verified
I couldn't have possibly asked for a better drum teacher than I have found in Blake Paulson! As an absolute beginner, I was worried I would feel intimidated starting from scratch. From our very first lesson Blake has been nothing but encouraging, positive, patient, professional, and I see and feel progress with every session. As a working professional drummer, he is able to offer insight into the industry, and application into the technique he teaches. His studio is beautifully kept and I love sitting down at his kit every week. He is extremely organized and efficient, always on time and available if I need to get in touch. Blake's accomplishments and training as a high level musician make him the ideal teacher, but it's his passion and infectious positivity that makes his lessons very special. I have found I love to drum and plan to continue training with him for a very long time.Mar 4, 2015Verified
Drum Lessons (for adults)
Blake is an amazing musician and an exceptional drum instructor. I've been taking lessons with him for a few months, and I'm inspired by his knowledge and passion for drumming. He has a very effective approach to methods of teaching, and he keeps me challenged while helping me to move forward quickly. I was impressed with his awesome studio in N. Hollywood. It's clean, organized, and the the most practical setting for learning. He's also given me advice on selecting drum equipment, drum tuning, how to approach practicing, and overcoming obstacles. Blake is positive, patient, encouraging, and makes learning the drums extremely enjoyable! I look forward to my lessons each week, and I would highly recommend Blake for drum instruction!May 11, 2017Verified
My son Max has been taking drum lessons from Blake for almost a year. He hit the ground running from day one, teaching the basics including reading music which I believe every musician should know. Blake's methods and personality have made drum lessons enjoyable and Max looks forwarded to his weekly sessions. I would absolutely recommend Blake to anyone interested in learning to play the drums.Nov 12, 2016
