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!
These were my first voice lessons ever. Lessons are fun. Deborah has lots of helpful advice and encouragement.
I started lessons with Andrew in June 2014 . I myself is a seasoned bassist and guitarist for 35 years, I needed to take drum lessons because I frequently have to cover on a drumset in a church band ,I have basic skills but I wanted to learn the right techniques . I am pleased with Andrews teaching methods he observes what the student needs to work on and assigns exercises that aids to improve drumming skills , he is enthusiastic , professional and fun to work with I highly recommend him for all skill levels.
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!
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.
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 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 was an excellent teacher of the drums and I highly recommend him to anyone starting to learn how to drum. He is skilled in conga drums along with standard kits.
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
My 13 y/o son has taken drum lessons with Steve for just over a year. He has learned so much. Steve provides a good mix of "fun" and "learning". His studio is awesome. He is flexible and helpful. I highly recommend him.
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!
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.
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've never been musically inclined, and he found the instrument that I could easily learn on, then taught me to play in terms even I could understand. Thanks Mike!
I am offering drum lessons to kids and adults in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. Fun, flexible and affordable. Please contact me for more details. Have a great day!
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!
Hi! I can teach guitar, drums, breakdancing, ballroom dancing, etc. I am versatile and have studied music and dancing for 10 years. The first lesson is free!
Doing Music Lessons provides fun, engaging music lessons in the East Bay and beyond. We offer lessons on the primary rhythm instruments: drums, percussion, piano, and guitar. Students learn how to jam by playing their favorite songs with the teacher. Along the way, we discuss good technique, how to practice, how to play in a band, how to read music, and how to write music.
I've been a professional drummer for over 30 years and have been teaching drums for 15 years. I do rock band group lessons and performance.
