I've been studying drums with Stevie for just a few lessons so far and I am very happy with how it's been going. His lessons are fun and dynamic, with the pace of learning adjusting to my skill level. Would recommend.

A Julliard Grad, Sam Ruttenberg is an extremely versatile teacher in both the jazz and classical fields. A student who wishes to be well rounded will be a perfect match for Sam. Although I have only studied primarily drumset with him, he has incorporated classical concepts into my playing and vice versa which has made me become an overall stronger player. Not only is he a jack of all trades, but he is also an entrepreneur. His bestselling drum product, the Hingestix, are sold all over the world. For anyone who is just picking up drumsticks should check his product out. Whether you are just trying to get better at the drums or considering having a musical career, Sam teaches students of all ages and gives back to the drumming community as much as he can.

I left my drum lesson with Patrick all fired up! Patrick covered the basics for me, as someone brand new to playing drums, in a way that covered a ton of territory while getting me playing and improving by the end of the hour. I appreciated Patrick's embodied approach to drums, encompassing ergonomics and the physicality as well as the mental part of playing. He incorporated examples from music I knew and his enthusiasm and broad knowledge for drumming came through. I can't comment on his punctuality, as I was running behind schedule, but he was accommodating and responsive. His rate was not the cheapest I was quoted, but his expertise, clarity, and personableness were well worth his rate. Highly recommended!

My son has been going for drum lessons to Dan for about 5 months now. Dan is a good teacher. He is very patient and encouraging and Dan has been able to help my son with his love for drumming. His hand and foot coordination is getting better and he is always looking forward to drum classes. Dan is a professional and easy to work with, fun and punctual. He makes his class a learning experience without compromising on the enjoyment.

I am an aspiring rap and R&B producer. I have been producing music for 6 years and I've been an avid drummer for 12. Since I started producing with a background in drumming, my productions were very advanced drum wise, but I was always hesitant to learn theory beyond playing C Major and looking at Piano scale charts. Theory always seemed daunting to learn. While I was growing creativity and technical in all fronts, my lack of theory became a crutch. Andy sat down with me and broke down scales, chords, general theory tremendously well. Since my learning needs are far different from traditional piano education, Andy has able to accommodate me and shift the lesson plans to what I feel is most important. I'm not trying trying to learn how to play 'Marry has a Little Lamb'. I'm trying to make music that moves people, and through lessons with Andy, I'll be were I need to be in due time. Highly recommend him.

I went into the lessons with some self-taught experience, and zero knowledge of terms/basics. Zhach is doing a phenomenal job of filling the holes in my knowledge, and expanding it into new territory. Lessons are an ideal blend of experimentation, new concepts, and the repetition of previously learned material.

Serious about learning the drumset? Charlie is your guy. Great teacher, always improving his game both as an educator and a player. Great guy, cares about his students progress. You better practice too! Charlie teaches out of love for the instrument, if you don't practice he may just refer you somewhere else! He is one of the area's best-kept secrets.

Joe is a great teacher. He has been instructing my son, a16 year old, for the last 2 years and has really connected with him. He's knowledgeable and knows how to keep the kids excited and interested. He is able to split his time with piano and guitar and make progress with both. He's always on time and super reliable!!

I had never had a drum lesson before but thought it would be something fun to try! Jaren was really good about breaking down what was necessary for me to know for my spontaneous lesson. I felt fully comfortable and encouraged learning from him. He was very knowledgeable and didn't make me feel anxious or intimidated trying something new which I really appreciated. He provided a professional, yet fun experience for me that I won't soon forget!

I have been playing for about 24 years and I am only 25 now, so basically all my life. I can teach from the perspective of playing with a band, playing musically as well as learning the rudiments and grooves that will greatly expand a young or new drummers abilities.

Break beats, without breaking banks. I offer private, professional drum kit instruction in South Central PA. Lessons are for beginning to intermediate players. I have studied drums with many of New York City's elite session players, such as Michael Carvin, Phil Bloom, Victor Lewis, Joe Cusadis, and others. Lessons will cover everything, from proper posture and sticking, to dynamics, reading and writing musical notation, and playing to a metronome. My lessons are also not meant to turn you into Jon Bonham or Neil Pert, but to help you find your own way of approaching the drums and developing your personal sound. These lessons can be adopted to jazz, funk, rock, blues, and any other style that you wish to play. Please contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks.

About

My name is John Dickinson and I am a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music. I've been teaching private drum lessons for a few years now to students of all levels and ages 35 minutes outside of Philadelphia in the town of Kennett Square, PA. I focus on teaching groove, good time, learning to listen more to the music when playing, listening and playing different styles of music, and most importantly, I remind my students to get out there and play with other musicians. I try to keep my lessons fun but at the same time making sure my students keep up with the material I give them. Please contact me if you or someone you know (whether it be a friend, cousin, or your child) wants to start taking drum lessons. Thanks. -John
