I took drum lessons with Damien from the end of junior high school until the summer before I left for college and loved every minute of it! Damien's passion for music is contagious and his enthusiasm in our lessons encouraged me to explore music in a way that I had not expected. By incorporating my personal musical likes into his teaching style he created a comfortable atmosphere where I was not limited by self doubt. I miss our lessons and highly recommend him as a musical instructor.

I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.

An exciting learning experience! I have had lessons for a month with my instructor Bill, and will continue to study with him in the future. He is an excellent teacher. Nothing to nit-pick, everything is just amazing. He taught every single detail of what I should know about drumming, recommended a really helpful textbook to me, and even helped to make my practice a great fun other than a dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate that. If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead try to work with Bill. It is absolutely worth the time and effort.

Joanna is a CalArts graduate and is an amazing musician and teacher. I've been taking drum lessons with Joanna for over 4 years, and my experience has been all fun and challenging. She is patient and takes her time going over the material with you and she even offers online demonstrations. This was my was first in class musical experience, and my journey has been all great. I'm looking forward to continue my drum lessons with Joanna, and I highly recommend Joanna for anyone who is looking to learn from someone as experienced as her.

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 first met Ron Robertson while he was the drummer for Saddleback Church. I knew his wife, as we were both volunteers for Saddleback’s Kids Ministry. Ron also taught kids how to play the drums during the summer music sessions put on by Saddleback Church. Our son was around 10 years old when he learned to play “smoke on the water” from Ron in one of those summer sessions. He learned in just a few weeks. He was so excited. After that my son began taking private drum lessons from Ron on a weekly basis at his home studio. Ron helped my son become very proficient on the drum kit. He taught our son for approximately 4 years. In that time my son was the lead percussionist in his Junior High Band. His precision of the beat and the counting of rhythms were due to the teachings of Ron. Ron has an extensive knowledge of drum skills & techniques to share with his students. In high school, my son began playing in a band and went back to Ron for some pointers to brush up on his skills. Ron is a very likable guy and did a great job teaching my son the drums. If time had allowed my son would have continued drum lessons with Ron.

My son loves his drum lessons with Chris. We find that Chris is very patient and inspires our son a lot to practice. Our son took piano lessons for years, but he never loved it or practiced that much. Now we don't have to say anything and our son is practicing so much. We highly recommend taking drum lessons from Chris at the Dynamic Drum School.

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.

My 12-year old son has been taking drums lessons with Zack for about 6 months and really, really likes him. Zack is an accomplished musician and a great teacher with a great curriculum that stands on its own, but is flexible enough to be able to address any new questions or directions that my son wants to take. I highly recommend him!

Lenny is a drummers drummer. His knowledge and experience combine into one of the most qualified drum teachers in America. From Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Funk; Lenny has the technical knowledge to teach across all major musical influences. Lenny will dramatically improve your hands and your site reading skills better than anyone I have ever worked with. His credentials are impeccable and you will see the influence of his teachers; Elvin Jones, Joe Porcaro and Sonny Igoe (some of the greatest drummers in history). I know of no one else in the South Bay that you can teach the legacy of these drum masters. Lenny is perfect for beginners and accomplished drummers of any age. I have been playing drums and classically trained since 1968 and Lenny is the guy I go to for improvement and new technique.

Over the years I've had many drum instructors, but Randy is the only one that I've stayed with. He is top notch and I can't recommend him enough whether you're a beginner or experienced player. Randy's expertise is in jazz, but he can play and teach any genre including latin, rock, and afro cuban. I can ask him for guidance on how to approach any song and he'll help me with both technical and conceptual ideas. His support has helped me become a more confident and musical drummer.

    I am a singer attempting to learn the drums! David was very patient and extremely educated in teaching first time adults like me . I was definitely encouraged and felt as if the lessons were formulated at an easy and nonintimidating pace.

    I took some guitar/drum lesson from Sam over the summer break for about a month. Even though it was a very short time having lessons from him, I've learned not only about music in general but also how fun it is to play music. I would take more lessons from him if I had any other chance to do so :)

    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.

    I really enjoyed taking drum lessons from Cale. He is very professional and so knowledgeable! I'm a beginner and he was so incredibly patient with me and friendly. He made me feel at ease during our sessions and spent extra time with me in areas I was having a hard time grasping. I've learned so much from him and will definitely be going back to him to further my skills.
