Andy at Coastal Music Studios was beyond helpful answering all my questions and getting my son set up with guitar lessons. The studio is very low pressure and accommodating! My son has an excellent teacher and is enjoying his lessons.

This guy knows his stuff!! Been taking drum lessons and jazz piano technique sessions with Josh and I couldn't be more impressed with the amount I've learned so quickly. I'm looking forward to studying regularly with him! Super kind dude and loves to help his students understand these difficult concepts.

Bernie has been a great drum teacher for my two daughters. He is dedicated, committed, fun and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start. A big plus for Bernie, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and he is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed, as their attention and focus shifts. I fully recommend him for Drum lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

For me, it was the simple things that Kyle taught me during my lessons with him that enhanced my playing. The importance of timing and playing with the track and not against the track. Tools and knowledge for life!

Victor made learning drums a really fun experience for me. I have trouble motivating myself to practice, but he found songs that I really enjoyed playing. I found myself wanting to practice every day, instead of it feeling like a chore. He was also good at explaining concepts in a way that I understood. Thanks Victor!

My children had music lessons with "Miss Lisa" for over ten years now, in both piano and voice. Now, she is even helping my young actress daughter with her audition monologues. She is a very gifted instructor, and is willing to step out of the box to encourage students and to develop their skills. Patient, kind, and thoughtful, she is nowhere near the "scary piano teacher" stereotype. We have followed her through several locations, and are excited for the new Encinitas Music Workshop. My daughter now has hour-long private voice lessons weekly, and still learns new things on a regular basic. At the new workshop space, there is also an opportunity for a break of pace with Guitar Hero, percussion learning, piano, and other musical pursuits.

I highly recommend US Music Lessons! My 14-year-old son has been with US Music Lessons for nearly a year as part of the Rock Band class. He is a drummer and has loved playing with other students in his band as they learn together the skills they need to be part of an actual rock band. They have played multiple times at local venues, including the Hard Rock Cafe, which has been an incredible experience for the kids. Although my son already was a drummer coming into US Music Lessons (Thanks to his grandfather), he has learned a great deal from the wonderful teachers that instruct the Rock Band. My son plays with kids every week who have been students of US Music Lessons learning various instruments, including voice lessons, and their experience has been positive. The kids coming out of US Music Lessons are all gifted and talented young musicians thanks to the wonderful teachers dedicated to their musical growth. The Rock Band class is an innovative, fun and inspiring way to teach music in that it develops a love and passion for performing and therefore a desire to improve on a daily basis. Playing with others that are like-minded and receiving the feedback in an actual performance class from the instructor has been an invaluable experience for my son.

I contacted Ron with an unusual request for drum lessons, but not those normal, conventional music/drum theories taught in typical drum set lessons. I wanted someone who can think "outside of the box" and explore an idea or two. To my great appreciation, Ron rose to the challenge in true form and is vastly improving my understanding of drumming theory, those very reasons behind why we play the rhythms the way we do. He is also vastly improving my skill level with exercises he specifically gears toward my personal abilities & skill level. If you are looking for an experience that can also be flexible in taking you to new, surprising fun drumming, this is a phone call you will definitely want to make!

About

I'm a private drum teacher specializing in children ages 7 and up. My program is a fool proof method of what I call "break down to build up" meaning that we strip the drum set down to just the snare drum and we learn each drum one at a time. So that we are not overwhelmed with the whole drum set all at once. I'm in the business of building strong self esteem, so let's get to drumming. If you cant come to my studio in vista then I will come to you especially if you have other children. If you don't have drums I will provide my own until you can afford your own.

About

I have been teaching drum and guitar lessons for the last five years. I studied music and voice at Cal State Fullerton. I get my students ready to play at gigs quickly, because I sing and play guitar at lessons so that we can cover songs during the sessions.

About

I am a drum and drum set instructor living in San Clemente. I give beginner to advanced-level drum and drum set lessons to anyone with a thirst for such knowledge in the southern Orange County area. I have performed a drum set in many different settings, including marching bands (snare, bass drums, tenor drums, and cymbals) rock acts, jazz, pop/cover acts, etc. I have been playing in a professional setting for 7 years. I have been playing drums and the drum set for 15 years and counting, and I'm loving every minute of it. I pride myself on giving my students a highly personal experience. I intend to lead any prospective student on a path, where they can take the fundamentals of drumming (rudiments and musicality) and use that to analyze the work of other drummers through listening and/or transcribing, and then take that experience and apply it creatively to any setting.
