Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I used to be able to sing but now I merely croak. I just began weekly voice lessons with Natalia and after only one session my pipes are stronger and my range has improved. As a teacher she is both a delight and knows her stuff. Best of all, she's extremely encouraging and creates an environment that allows you to make mistakes. The location is both professional and warming, just like Natalia.

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.

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!

My son loves his drum lessons with Chris. We moved to Orange County in January from Seattle. My son loved his drum teacher there, so we knew it would be difficult finding someone my son connected with. We went in for a trial lesson about a month ago and have since taken about 3 lessons and my son absolutely loves it. We are so happy we found Chris at the Dynamic Drum School and definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent teacher.

My son, Chase, took drum lessons from Kyle for 5+ years when Kyle was teaching on the central coast of California.  Chase started when he was nine.  Kyle did an incredible job with him.  So much so that I eventually decided to take lessons from him myself.  A great instructor and  an even better human being. I couldn't have asked for a better role model for my son. Steve Andersen, San Luis Obispo, CA

Julian is a great teacher, and a phenomenal musician. He was always very willing to dive into whatever I wanted to learn, and gave really useful insights into every part of the music production process. He has extensive experience in tons of areas of music, and has worked with enough great musicians to know exactly how to get to any musical destination. He was always reasonable about payment and prices, and our lessons always felt more like a hang than a business transaction. Would highly recommend.

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.

Both of my children have been taking lessons with Rachel for the past 3 years and she's been awesome! My daughter takes singing lessons and my son has been taking saxophone lessons, and they both love it! She's really professional and fun to work with. It's also been nice that she teaches a lot of instruments so we can have one teacher come to the house to teach both of the kids one after the other. I couldn't recommend her enough!

My son Josh has been taking guitar lessons from Mike for the past four years. Not only has Josh consistently improved, but he has enjoyed his lessons with Mike, looking forward to the time he spends with him every week, whether it is in person or via Skype. Mike's easy going manner, expert teaching knowledge and musical skill on the guitar combine to make him an excellent guitar teacher. He has the fine ability to challenge Josh while keeping him interested and meeting him where he is at musically. I highly recommend Mike as a guitar teacher, having referred several friends to Mike in the past, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

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.
