Neil has been awesome and I have learned so much since I started taking drum lessons with Neil about a year ago. I had been a recreational drummer for many years but was lacking guidance to take my drumming to the next level. Neil has a great program that focuses on reading music, playing rudiments and learning various drum beats for rock, funk and more. Neil also play bass, which has been a great accompaniment for practice sessions. In addition, Neil has given me great insights into practicing better with my band, tips for playing live and how to become a better musician in general. Very highly recommended!!
I'm an intermediate level drummer who was seeking lessons to help bring my playing to the next level and I found Brian Fruechtenicht here on thumbtack. I have to say, having taken drum lessons before that this experience has been unlike any other. Brian's novel approach may seem unorthodox if you come into lessons with any preconceived notion of what drum lessons should be like, however his unique take on them (not to mention his enthusiasm) really conveys a lot of the practical knowledge that helps change good drummers into great drummers. In my own drumming, I feel like my style had become rote, but Brian helped me find more creativity behind the kit. I play for a band and I have to say even that sounds leagues better since beginning lessons with Brian Fruechtenicht, and those lessons tend to be some of the most fun I have all week. Brian Fruechtenicht gets a high recommendation from me!
Art gave drum lessons to my then 9 year old daughter. He was great! He was always punctual, came prepared, was patient with her, kept it fun and gave good, clear homework assignments. I highly recommend him.
It is my first time learning drum, and I am very glad that I met Andre, a very professional and experienced drum teacher. He is very patient, observant, and friendly. Each class he makes sure you understand the materials from previous lessons, and he also shows you the best way to approach new materials. Each week I can feel that I make actual progress step by step. No matter if you are a beginner or an experienced drummer, Andre would be an excellent choice for you!
I strongly recommend Diego as an excellent professor of piano, who really motivates students to develop their ability. He gave piano lessons to my older daughter for more than 5 years since she was in high school, until some months ago. I am very grateful to Diego for encouraging Almudena, my daughter, to find a way of expressing herself through music.
Matthias has been giving my son drum lessons for almost 5 years. He is an outstanding teacher and knows just the way to relate to young people and keep them interested. He is also a terrific drummer.
Henry has been teaching both my 5 year old, and myself, hand drums. And facilitating a drum circle for us with families of 5-7 YOs. He's been great - very flexible to adjust to what we want, and finding the right things to teach us so we make progress focused on our interests. I'd highly recommend him!
Joe is a great teacher and a wonderful mentor. I have taken lessons from him since 2014 and he has taught me many lessons about drumming but also lessons about life and how to become a better musician. He is very kind and willing to help you in any way he can. If you are searching to start drumset for the very first time or you are looking to fine-tune your skills, he is the person to go to. Each lesson I learn something new and they can be structured around something I need to improve on or something brand new that I would like to learn. I truly believe that he is THE BEST drum teacher I have ever had.
Ward is fantastic! My 7 year old son was interested in learning to play drums- Ward gave him the space to explore his studio and all of the percussion instruments in there, as well as the structure to start to learn. We are thrilled!
I had my first drum lesson with Mike Hoffmann today. He is a very professional and I had also fun learning from him. He is excellent and I am happy. Ping Haas
I am manny and he was drum teacher and my advisory and he’s good got great timing , good rythym and has many great teaching lessons that won’t make you forget of those lessons
Mike was an excellent teacher of the drums and I highly recommend him to anyone starting to learn how to drum. He is skilled in conga drums along with standard kits.
Thomas is great with the kids. So focused on them and enthusiastic. My son, who has not liked music or playing an instrument, recently signed up with Thomas for drumming lessons. He's like a new kid. LOVES it!
I have been with Otto for 2 months and an delighted with my progress. He is clearly a knowledgeable and skilled musician and teacher. He is building my drumming skills layer by layer. Each week I learn new techniques starting with the basics. As well, he shows patience and if I am puzzled he uses a different method to get the point across. I hold a master's degree and play another instrument so understand and recognize a good teacher.
Great instructor. Thorough and knowledgable. I played two drum beats on my first drum lesson and I had never played drums before. I progressed rapidly and after 6 months can comfortably play with a band.
I am a drummer with over 10-plus years of experience in all music types. I have experiences in several bands and can teach all levels (beginners to advanced).

Hey, folks! I'm Nick, a touring and recording drummer from Oakland who has played and still plays all around the world. Drumming is my favorite thing to do. Check out my super extensive music resume at my website. I teach drums privately in my Oakland studio, at some of my students' homes, at the School of Rock at both of the Bay Area locations in San Francisco and San Mateo (these kids are amazing!), I teach as a substitute at the Academy of Language and Music Arts in Orinda, CA, and is exploring music in San Jose. I don't believe in one-size-fits-all music teaching. With that in mind, I tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs and interests. We start with the kind of music that you love most, and we slowly work outward from there, expanding the concepts. I've played and taught jazz (everything, from swing to seriously advanced Elvin Jones and Tony Williams' jazz drumming), hip-hop, R&B, indie rock, metal (blast beats and double bass), Afro-Beat (Gnawa rhythms, etc.), Southern Indian music, experimental and improvised playing, etc. We'll work on whatever you really want to do. Do you want to just learn the basics? Okay! Do you want to learn to play for fun in a garage band? Great! Do you want to be the next drummer for Slayer? Awesome! Do you want to learn drums, so you can produce better hip-hop beats on your MPC? Let's do it!
I am offering drum lessons to kids and adults in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. Fun, flexible and affordable. Please contact me for more details. Have a great day!
Have drum lessons with Bob Danielson, a seasoned teacher-performer. I've been teaching privately, beginners through professionals, for over 25 years. I am a professional drummer with a music studio in San Francisco. I'm well-versed in a wide variety of musical styles, have a long history in the music business, and a strong understanding of music theory, all of which serve me well as a drum instructor. Your lesson can be a half hour or one hour in length, it's up to you. For a beginner, for the first several lessons, I'll show you how to practice without a drum set, as you decide if drumming is for you. I have excellent references, gladly provided upon request. Thanks for considering me, Bob
