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.

Bernie has been a great drum teacher for my two daughters. He is dedicated, committed, fun and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start. A big plus for Bernie, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and he is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed, as their attention and focus shifts. I fully recommend him for Drum lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

Tim is an excellent drum teacher! His rates are very reasonable. He's been teaching my 9 year old daughter for 8 months and she's learned so much in that time. Tim is her 2nd drum teacher and I'm very happy with his teaching style. He's professional and personable, easy to talk to, and accommodating to schedule changes.

Victor made learning drums a really fun experience for me. I have trouble motivating myself to practice, but he found songs that I really enjoyed playing. I found myself wanting to practice every day, instead of it feeling like a chore. He was also good at explaining concepts in a way that I understood. Thanks Victor!

Nothing but good things to say about Ron and his drum lessons. Punctual, knowledgeable, and really tailors his lessons to each student. Would recommend 100%, lucky to have found him. If you've come this far, don't hesitate to book a lesson, you won't regret it.

Drew Koltun- Drum Lessons,

Working with Drew was an overall great experience. Drew is very attentive, patient and thorough. He was very encouraging and gave gentle reminders to stay relaxed, take deep breaths, not beat myself up when I made small mistakes, and to just groove and feel the music rather than overthink it. His lesson flowed perfectly and I must say that my over all favorite part of the lesson was drumming along side Drew and watching his expertise and light shine! I would happily recommend Drew to anyone serious about learning to play and love the drums!

For me, it was the simple things that Kyle taught me during my lessons with him that enhanced my playing. The importance of timing and playing with the track and not against the track. Tools and knowledge for life!

My 10-year old son really enjoys learning drums from Jake. He communicates well and makes lessons fun to learn. I do see my son’s drum skills improve. Thanks, Jake.

For years I've known Mike; and I've worked with him on numerous musical projects. He is one of the most talented, spirited, and influencial musicians I've had the pleasure of knowing. Collaborating with him has been one of the greatest learning experiences I've had. Not to mention, Mike is one of the easiest going, likable people out there. I'd recommend him for lessons, or even a half hour of picking his musical brain.

About

I'm a private drum teacher specializing in children ages 7 and up. My program is a fool proof method of what I call "break down to build up" meaning that we strip the drum set down to just the snare drum and we learn each drum one at a time. So that we are not overwhelmed with the whole drum set all at once. I'm in the business of building strong self esteem, so let's get to drumming. If you cant come to my studio in vista then I will come to you especially if you have other children. If you don't have drums I will provide my own until you can afford your own.
