We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

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 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.

My son has been taking drum lessons with Chris for over two years. He really loves it. I don't have to beg him to practice, he always does it on his own. Chris always is fun and so positive with my son. He is a really great role model for young kids. You can tell he really loves to teach. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

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.

Nolan has training and experience in several areas of music, but I'm glad that he has a passion for teaching. He understands that people take lessons for different reasons and have individual ambitions. I have found that Nolan’s priority is to identify these goals; to see that his students progress and have fun while they are learning. He gives my daughter constant, constructive feedback during her drum lessons, and works to teach and challenge her. He is always patient and positive, and wants to know that he is helping her achieve her goals. Nolan is professional and reliable, and my daughter is fortunate to be one of his students!

Mr. Dave is so great with our boys! My sons have learned so much in such a short amount of time. My kids look forward to their lesson with Mr. Dave every week. He makes learning the drums fun! He is very patient and you can really feel that he loves what he does. We're so glad we found him!

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.

The two years that my daughter has been taking piano lessons with Elite Musique piano teacher, Kelly, has been nothing but a positive experience. My daughter's favorite aspect is preparing and performing for the company-organized open mic nights. As a parent, I have been impressed with Kelly's knowledge and professionalism, her genuine attention to my daughter's advancement in piano (and voice) skills, and the performing and testing opportunities.

    Cindy is great. She is quick to respond and works with the client to arrange lesson times. She worked so well with my son and brought out a part of him I don't get to see often (he has Aspergers). I would recommend Cindy to anyone that is interested in one on one lessons for young or old.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
