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!

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!

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.

I found Dave Lake back in 2001 when I was first learning about the drums. He was very patient with me an taught me all of my rudiments. Now I play in a band and can't thank Dave enough for his guidance!

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!

    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!

    Lucas made learning the drums fun and easy! My child got to learn technique and his favorites songs. He helped my daughter figure out goals for her drumming, and how to work towards acheiving them. I highly recommend him.

    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

    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.
