Stephan was a joy. The tuning went smoothly and I had my first piano lesson immediately following it. His breadth of knowledge is very impressive and his sensitivity to the gaps in mine made me feel very comfortable and helped with my own particular learning curve. I would highly recommend Stephan as a tuner and a teacher...

I recently started drum lessons with Jay, and he is an exceptional teacher and a very talented musician. He provides a comfortable environment with the ability to explain and demonstrate musical concepts that are easy to understand. He takes the time to send videos of what we practiced for reference if needed, and is available if I have any questions. He is patient, dedicated and inspiring, and I'm having a great time! I would highly recommend Jay. Great experience, very impressed!

My name is Jeff Griffin, I've been playing drums for over 30 years now. Back in 1984 when I was 12 years old I took my first lessons from Barry. He was a great teacher, he started me out with the basic fundamentals of drumming, in order to build a solid foundation. He taught me how to read drum notation, showed me how to play rudiments and good practicing habits. He showed me some basic rock beats and blues rythmes and even a little jazz. I have been playing and loving every minute of it ever since. I am forever grateful for Barry and getting me started in my lifelong art of drumming. Jeff Griffin

If you're searching for a drum instructor, go no further and call Tony. He teaches based on each individual's personal goals and ability and is extremely knowledgeable about different types of music - I'm enjoying every minute of each lesson. He's also a great guy - relaxed, fun & affordable! You rock, Tony - thanks!!!

Every Friday I'm at GoDpsMusic for my drum lesson. Definitely my favorite day of the week! The atmosphere is excellent! The acoustic and electronic drum kits in the lesson studios are the best. If you want to schedule a lesson or purchase equipment, I strongly recommend GoDpsMusic. Kevin, Brendan, Bryan, Steve and Robbie are the "go-to" guys at GoDpsMusic.

About

My Teaching Philosophy: All students have different goals, interests, levels of experience, natural abilities, time constraints, etc. I am appreciative of these factors, and therefore develop our customized lesson plans around these actualities to ensure each student receives exactly what he or she is set out to achieve.

About

I can teach rock and roll drumming beginner through intermediate levels. I can teach on my set at home, or I can travel within the Santa Barbara area for lessons. Maximum distance will vary as travel arrangements dictate. I have worked with students at SBCC since 2009 helping walk them through the enrollment processs so patience is a strong suite of mine. I am also an experienced nanny (or manny to those who find it funny), so all age ranges work well for me. But most importantly, I can drum! I still have a lot of work to do on my own skills, so beginners would be best for me,

About

I teach private lessons and group band workshop classes at Rock City Studios, 2258 Pickwick Camarillo. I have been there since they opened in 2008 and have 5 years of experience teaching prior to that. I have a degree in percussion from Musicians Institute and was also hired by the school as a TA while attending. I worked a short stint as a customer service rep for dw drums, so my knowledge of the instrument is extensive. The lessons are held in a state-of-the-art drum room with 2 DW kits side-by-side. I specialize in teaching beginner and intermediate students but am an advanced player and can share advanced concepts with more experienced players.
