I chose Matt because he does drum lessons via Skype. That way I can use my own drum kit in my own house, and I don't have to travel. It is great! Matt is an excellent teacher who doesn't make you feel like an idiot. He is very patient, and professional. He is also a WORKING drummer himself. I like the fact he plays out and is not some old guy with a beat up drum kit who hasn't been on stage in years. I've tried other drum instructors and Matt is the best. Other instructors always want you to open the book and learn to read music right away. Matt is different, he actually listens to you, and asks you want you want to learn. Most of our lessons are spent learning cool fills and rudiments which help with speed and timing. I really like the fact Matt shows me things I can use at my next gig. Things I can apply right away which make me a better drummer. Bottom line, Matt is really cool and I recommend him for any age, and any skill level. Dan - Hemet, California

Michael is great. He's teaching me things that I would have never known otherwise and they really help me progress with my drumming dramatically. So far, he's been able to answer any question and quickly address any concern I had. He's a drummer's drummer and it really shows in his teaching. Very happy with him.

I took a few beginning drum lessons with Michael, and they were very helpful. He showed me a variety of rudiments and exercises, while coaching me on proper technique, that I continue to practice. They have helped me improve greatly. I highly recommend Michael's patient yet focused teaching style to students of all ages!

My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.

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!

    Henry Newmark is an INCREDIBLE drum set teacher and mentor. Henry attended the Berklee School of Music, Henry's approach is precise and professional. Henry is the REAL deal and his instruction is phenomenal. You or your child will absolutely be learning proper technique as well as music theory. Henry is a perfectionist in the best way possible. My son took lessons once or twice a week with Henry for 5 years straight. Not only did my son look forward to his lessons every week, but he went from being a beginning student to now being a freshman percussion major at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. Henry taught my son drum set, orchestral and snare drumming, and jazz drum set. There is NO WAY my son would be where he is today without Henry. Henry is also very kind and has a great sense of humor. There is no better drum teacher then Henry Newmark. If you want to learn how to play the drums, he is your guy without a doubt.

    I have been taking lessons from Austin for a year now and I am more than pleased with the results. Austin has a well rounded understanding of the drums and is well versed in many different styles. Austin has given me the practices I need to take my drumming to the next level. I have seen a great improvement in my abilities in just one year of lessons.But more importantly Austin's main point is to make drumming fun and he definitely does that. I plan on taking lessons from Austin for a long time.

    Coach Jake is a wonderful, creative teacher who has as much fun learning as his students do. My daughter has been taking drum lessons with him for two years and loves it. She says he's silly and playful and makes learning drums so much fun. While she's having fun, she's also learning technique, rhythm and how to read music. I absolutely recommend Coach Jake if you're looking to learn to play drums. Having a blast as you do is a great bonus too in my book!

    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

    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

    My teaching career began in high school when I would teach other high school and middle school students drum lessons. Upon graduating, I continued my music studies at two different institutions. I have a B.A. in jazz studies from Florida State University and an M.F.A. in jazz studies from the California Institute of the Arts. Total, I have over seven years of experience as a private instructor. I am able to teach drum set, classical and rudimental snare drum and Latin percussion lessons. I have had experience in teaching students with ages ranging from 5-56. In addition to teaching percussion, I can teach music theory, jazz keyboard theory, composition and beginning piano and guitar students. Some of my former students have gone on to study music performance at colleges, such as Florida State University, The University of Miami, Louisiana State University and The University of Alabama.
