US Music Lessons is great. My daughter's been receiving piano lessons for a little over a year now and it's been a positive experience. The teachers are nice and their rates are reasonable, better than similar services out there.
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!
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 children had music lessons with "Miss Lisa" for over ten years now, in both piano and voice. Now, she is even helping my young actress daughter with her audition monologues. She is a very gifted instructor, and is willing to step out of the box to encourage students and to develop their skills. Patient, kind, and thoughtful, she is nowhere near the "scary piano teacher" stereotype. We have followed her through several locations, and are excited for the new Encinitas Music Workshop. My daughter now has hour-long private voice lessons weekly, and still learns new things on a regular basic. At the new workshop space, there is also an opportunity for a break of pace with Guitar Hero, percussion learning, piano, and other musical pursuits.
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.
Nothing but positive things to say. All of the concepts are taught very in-depth and organized in a fashion that is very easy to follow. Quite literally any beat that I requested help with was played and taught flawlessly, even with only a day's notice. If you have a fair amount of experience with drumming and need some help taking your skills to the next level or even if you are a total beginner, Victor does a fantastic job of tailoring each session to suit your level and interests.
I contacted Ron with an unusual request for drum lessons, but not those normal, conventional music/drum theories taught in typical drum set lessons. I wanted someone who can think "outside of the box" and explore an idea or two. To my great appreciation, Ron rose to the challenge in true form and is vastly improving my understanding of drumming theory, those very reasons behind why we play the rhythms the way we do. He is also vastly improving my skill level with exercises he specifically gears toward my personal abilities & skill level. If you are looking for an experience that can also be flexible in taking you to new, surprising fun drumming, this is a phone call you will definitely want to make!

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.
My son has taken several lessons from Danny and we have had nothing but excellent results. Danny is very patient, courteous and knowledgeable. The way he teaches is very fun. He typically has two drum sets set up facing each other which gives the student a visual image of what the lesson, beat, fill or hit should look like. Danny teaches from the ground up. not only does he teach regular beats, he teaches different timing, hits, theory and everything else there is to know about being a well versed drummer. After only a few lessons, Danny had my son playing beats while simultaneously using all 4 limbs. You can tell when he teaches that Danny is very passionate about the art of drumming. His love for the art is why we went with such a great teacher. Thank you Danny
Lucus got right back to me. He came to my home and brought the equipment needed to help my son with an audition piece. Very nice guy.

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.
