Easy to find location, Professional recording environment, Great vibes and high quality equipment. I recommend this facility to all artists from beginner to Pro, and any genre of music!! Looking forward to booking my next session!!
Guitar and drum lessons. James is amazing. Personable, easy going, and professional. Teaches according to student's abilities and desires. Can learn any song you want to learn and then show you in a manner you can handle.
Alex is patience and funny! I had lots of fun on my first lessons and he understand if you are a total beginner which I appreciate! Looking forward to another lesson, 100% recommend! :)
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
Damien is truly a wonderful music instructor! He is very knowledgeable in music and I'm so glad I was able take drum lessons from Damien!!
Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!
I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!
I've been taking drum lessons with JJ via Skype for almost two months now and LOVE IT! First, I absolutely love the convenience of the Skype Lessons. It's so easy to schedule and coordinate and is just as effective as an in person lesson- even more so since we can both access and share emails/files/videos/lesson plans so quickly! By just angling my laptop, she can see and hear everything I'm doing and is able to easily advise on technique. Plus, there's just somehow less pressure than having someone physically in the room with you, and I feel more comfortable to experiment, make mistakes, then learn. Second, aside from the tech aspect of it, JJ is an amazing teacher! She really tailors lessons to you as an individual based on your goals, skill level, schedule, tastes, and how you work best. She always has drills and lessons ready to go, but is completely adaptable when something different comes up that you might want/need to work on. Everything she teaches is incredibly practical and well thought out to ensure the best, most effective learning process possible. Plus, it's so fun! JJ is patient, encouraging, enthusiastic, and everything you'd want in a drum teacher. I feel like I am flying in how quickly I've progressed in just a few weeks, and it's all thanks to JJ!!
We have been going to Drum Sync for 2 years now and we love drum lessons with Kyle. He is a great teacher and my son looks forward to his class each week.
Delightful young man. Accommodating schedule and a thoughtful teacher! Our son is enjoying his lessons and practicing them after. Thank you Efrain!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
Howard Richman is not a piano teacher...he is a LIFE CHANGER. I went to him to learn piano...but realized that the lessons I learned studying piano with the MASTER were not merely lessons in music....but lessons that helped me see outside the paradigm in all areas of my life. Often, as adults, we "come back" to our music...to study what we have been "wanting to get back to" for years. I learned that this is often a time of great change and evolution for us personally. Howard, being so intuitive, knows how to tune in to each individual's needs.... and empower them to EMPOWER themselves. He is a BRILLIANT pianist, composer and master teacher. I've watched him perform miracles with young children who struggled with other teachers who simply wanted to teach "by the book." Howard is always able to find your inner talent and abilities, possibly that are even unknown to you...and he can creatively, intuitively and intelligently create a course of action that will leave you amazed! That's why you are reading SO many wonderful comments here about him. If you are lucky enough to get to study with Howard, it will change your life!...and btw, I can now play a mean Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"....Thank you for everything you taught me Howard Richman!

My 5 year old takes drumming lessons. The instructor is patient and encouraging to him. He has a great command of the instrument and his students. My 5 year old can read music after a summer of practice.
Geo is a very good drummer with a great attitude!!! I took lessons with him for over two years and thoroughly enjoyed my time. He has a cool approach to the drum kit that makes you look comfortable and relaxed when playing. He is experienced and knows how to quickly help you where you lack. He is patient and nice! Highly recommended for both experienced players and beginners!
Michael has a very straight forward approach to teaching. Whether it was answering a technique question or developing new ways to manuever around the set, each lesson consisted of my thoroughly learning new information in a practical and very efficient manner. Being a percussionist myself, we naturally have good rapport with the language we communicate with. Michael's way of personal interaction alongside his instrument is certainly one of the best forays into any practice and study of music, for those just starting or already proficient.
I signed up for some drum lessons with Aly. I am an adult student and was a little bit apprehensive about seeking instruction. I wanted to focus on playing traditional grip and jattempt to get my chops back to where they were 20 years ago. I'm glad I decided to sign up. Aly is not only a talented musician, but she is also a sincere and sweet person. Her lessons are encouraging, motivating, and fun. I look forward to our sessions. I would recommend her for any age. If you are s parent and thinking about taking your child to her for lessons, I cannot recommend her enough.
Isy teaches two of my teenagers the drums and guitar. Both started as complete beginners and have grown so much with his help. We appreciate his encouraging and positive approach to teaching and his amazing depth of knowledge. He is very patient and designs the flow of each lesson to meet each student’s specific needs instead of trying to conform the student into a pre-scripted curriculum plan. The girls look forward to lessons each week and are growing in their love for their instrument.
My children are both working with Mr. Frank weekly. He tailors the lessons to their skill level and age. What I like most is his professionalism and his amazing studio set up. He has made many custom tracks for my son and audio files of rehearsals that he uses at home to practice.
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.

I am 27 years old and have been playing both the drums and guitar for as long as I can remember. I took lessons myself for several years, and I would like to pass my knowledge on.

With over 35 years of drum instruction experience, hundreds of students from ages 6 to 50+ years with experience ranging from beginner to seasoned-pro. Mark has a proven tract record with lessons tailored to meet the students needs. Mark is patient, organized and results oriented. Marks style of teaching is relaxed and incorporates years of experience. His years of teaching have given him an understanding that people learn differently and no two students are exactly alike. What this means is that lessons are tailored to each student in order to meet them at their level of ability and comprehension. Students may lean towards being more Visual Learners, Auditory Learners, Kinesthetic Learners or a combination thereof which is what makes drumming a fantastic vehicle to increasing brain function. As is said, "Neurons that fire together, wire together." For example: Mark employs having a student read drum notation while singing and playing the rhythm on the drum set. Perhaps more importantly is Marks ability to tap into his students desire to play drums, keeping it fun while he helps them move towards mastery of the instrument.
