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!
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 is my first time learning drum, and I am very glad that I met Andre, a very professional and experienced drum teacher. He is very patient, observant, and friendly. Each class he makes sure you understand the materials from previous lessons, and he also shows you the best way to approach new materials. Each week I can feel that I make actual progress step by step. No matter if you are a beginner or an experienced drummer, Andre would be an excellent choice for you!
Kevin has excellent skills in teaching both kids and adults. No matter if your an experience or a begginer. He has been teaching my son for almost 8 months now and there is a signifant improvement in his playing. Im an amature drummer. I play at parties and bars occasionally.I also take lessons from him from time to time when time permits. I would highly recomend Kevin.
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.
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 am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.
My experience with Atemu at Mu-Sick Beats was very good. Atemu taught me vocal lessons and music theory, and I learned an incredible amount from him. He is extremely knowledgeable about music, and very professional, and packs every lesson with depth and insight. He has a way of knowing exactly where you are and delivering what you need... he really tunes in. I walked away from every lesson feeling inspired and excited to dig in even more. I highly recommend Atemu and Mu-Sick Beats Jam Studio as a great source of musical knowledge and inspiration.
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 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.
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.
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
Prompt response to schedule, easy payment online. First lesson with cello teacher with Bridget was great - she is good with kids. Still early on, so hoping it continues to go well!
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!
I had never attempted to learn drums and Patrick was extremely patient with me and an AMAZING teacher! He gave me exercises to work on at home and encouraged me to write my own music. I feel like I understand drumming and have a newfound respect for the craft!
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.
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!
Thomas is great with the kids. So focused on them and enthusiastic. My son, who has not liked music or playing an instrument, recently signed up with Thomas for drumming lessons. He's like a new kid. LOVES it!

I love teaching from beginning up to advanced acting principles, voice, speech, movement, improv, and various other fun elements of the dramatic arts. Also, if you're looking for beginning or intermediate guitar, bass or drums, I'm your guy! Are you looking for a band? I've got one! I also have child care experience and can host intermittent afternoons and keep your youngins learning and having a blast!
