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!
We arrived from France three years ago and we were so lucky to met Andrew He is really a good and enthusiast teacher. My son Justin, 13 year old now, enjoy always going to take a drum lesson. He has an amazing feeling with my son, I stay during the lesson and it is sincerely a nice moment with work and play, like music. He is very smart and always finds the right tune for the lesson He is much more than a teacher, he is a great musician. Have a drum lesson with him, you will really appreciate
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!
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.
Ward is fantastic! My 7 year old son was interested in learning to play drums- Ward gave him the space to explore his studio and all of the percussion instruments in there, as well as the structure to start to learn. We are thrilled!
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 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
Mike is one of the best drummers I've worked with, and I've worked with many. We played both rock and jazz styles. A sensitive player and easygoing so easy to work with.
Henry's been really helpful in showing me the basics of percussion. I wanted to learn more so I could play in my community band and Henry's been teaching me snare, marimba, timpani and drum set. He's super sweet and really patient, I totally recommend him to all my musical friends!
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
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!
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 have been with Otto for 2 months and an delighted with my progress. He is clearly a knowledgeable and skilled musician and teacher. He is building my drumming skills layer by layer. Each week I learn new techniques starting with the basics. As well, he shows patience and if I am puzzled he uses a different method to get the point across. I hold a master's degree and play another instrument so understand and recognize a good teacher.
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!
