My son Max has been taking drum lessons from Blake for almost a year. He hit the ground running from day one, teaching the basics including reading music which I believe every musician should know. Blake's methods and personality have made drum lessons enjoyable and Max looks forwarded to his weekly sessions. I would absolutely recommend Blake to anyone interested in learning to play the drums.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

I wanted to start drum lessons in the area and didn't know where to start. A friend mentioned and recommended Stefano. He's a great teacher and definitely knows his stuff. His experience has allowed me to go at my own pace while integrating theory he's taught me and implementing them in my drum playing.

I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!

As a former professional musician, I have had a lot of experience with music instructors, and know what qualities make a great teacher. Alex has been my son's drum teacher for seven years now, and has done an outstanding job. He is patient, clear in his instruction, and challenges my son to reach his full potential. Although my son is only 11, he's begun playing with an intermediate-level improvisation class in town that is made up of teens and adults, and has been excelling. I know there is no way he would have gotten this far without Alex's guidance and encouragement. When Alex moved to California a couple of years ago, I was concerned that his lessons with my son would not be as strong without his actual presence. However, we have maintained weekly lessons via skype, and the lessons have been as strong as ever. We also send him short clips during the week of my son's progress, and we get almost instant feedback and guidance. Alex has also taken the time to get to know my son, including his other interests and sensibilities. I can't imagine a better teacher for my son. We feel very blessed. I give Alex my strongest endorsement.

I had taken about 6 months of drum lessons and sort of hit a wall with my progress. I needed a teacher who would customize for my interests and abilities and help me stay motivated to practice at home. So far I have taken 2 hours of lessons with John J who is a very patient and encouraging teacher. He has already covered so much ground that previous teachers glossed over, and I feel like I have a much more solid foundation because of it. I would recommend his drum lessons for any age because he can definitely meet you at your current skill level, and it seems like he could get along with anybody--kids, teens, and adults.

My 5 year old takes drumming lessons. The instructor is patient and encouraging to him. He has a great command of the instrument and his students. My 5 year old can read music after a summer of practice.

Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!

Geo is a very good drummer with a great attitude!!! I took lessons with him for over two years and thoroughly enjoyed my time. He has a cool approach to the drum kit that makes you look comfortable and relaxed when playing. He is experienced and knows how to quickly help you where you lack. He is patient and nice! Highly recommended for both experienced players and beginners!

My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.

My son began taking drum lessons with Lindsay via skype at 6 years old. He will be 9 next month and is still loving his drum lessons. He has learned so much in such a short period of time. Not only is Lindsay clearly a skilled drummer but is also an apt teacher. She is patient while pushing my son to improve his skills. I know from personal experience that learning an instrument can be frustrating to the point that the student will want to give up. This is especially true for a kid. Lindsay understands this and has the ability to balance progress with patience. I highly recommend Lindsay as a drum teacher!

Chase's lessons have been super helpful! His lessons are customized to my skill level and the desired facets I have been wanting to improve on. He's already improved my knowledge of fundamental guitar theory, as well as songwriting and recording. Definitely recommend!

Jeffery is the best. I always had so much fun during my lessons with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn the drums. He’ll tailor the lesson and his teaching method for whatever works best for the student. He’s knowledgeable, patient, and one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. 5 stars all the way.

About

Before learning from private teachers and attending music college, I was self taught. I have a good perspective on how to communicate with those who are beginners. I take pride in my own creative ways of teaching.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
