My son really enjoys the drum lessons and has learned a lot in a short amount of time. We are very satisfied!
My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)
I found Eric through a friend of a friend and love him. My 12 year old son has been taking lessons from Eric for about 6 months now and really enjoys it. I never have to remind him to practice anymore. Eric is reliable, always on time and enthusiastic every time we meet.. My son can't wait for his next drum lesson. He really seems to be learning a lot.
My son Nicholas started taking lessons with Mike at age 9 and continued with him for years, and through Mike's outstanding teaching skills, brought Nick to the level that Mike hired Nick to teach some of his beginning students utilizing Mike's teaching methods. If you are reading this because you, or your child or someone you know is interested in taking drum lessons, you need to look no further, you have found the best!!! Mike truly cares and nurtures each of his students, you won't find someone more devoted that the art of drumming and making you successful in your endeavor.
My 8yr old son really likes having his drum lessons with Steve and he explains really well not only to him but explains alot to me which I don't know much about drums so I appreciate that, plus my son loves the songs he picks out for him to play on his drums with. Ask my son "he shows me a lot of good/new things and is a really good teacher" I recommend taking lessons with Steve
I enjoy coming to music lessons every week. Andra is very attentive and knowledgeable. She caters the lessons for my voice specifically. She finds songs for me to sing that are both challenging and rewarding. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher. I know that she wants me to succeed. She makes my growth and advancement a priority. She makes lessons enjoyable and insightful. I am thrilled at the progress I’m making and can’t wait to learn more. I’m thankful for Andra and the whole Jerry Evans team!!!
We cant say enough abiut Eric. We have had an amazing experience with Eric. My ten-year-old son has learned so much and is so inspired by Eric during every lesson. Eric really knows how to work with kids and keep them interested. Not only is he an amazing instructor, but he is a rocking drummer himself. We will continue to take drum lessons with him as long as my son stays interested.
Ted Sirota offered to play drums on my forthcoming E.P "Dred Reggae" ... he transformed my track into a masterpiece with his amazing drumming skillz and arrangement , I highly recommend Ted for drum lessons and drum arrangement ... 10 out of 10 in my books !
I have two kids, and between work and their 5 activities, Traveling Music Lessons is the only way my kids would be able to participate and become educated in music. This service is awesome - they come to you for about the same price as a studio where you go to them.
I met Mike about 12 years ago. he was teaching one of my cousins kids to play the drums. I had recently started to kick it again my self. So I inquired about Mike. My first meeting with Mike I was 48 years old and Mike was about 26-28 yrs old. When I met him and realized he was so young I asked him why I should take lessons from a guy half my age. He explained to me that he had been drumming since he was 3. He has such a passion to play the drums. he studied every drummer he could and then he explained and showed me what he could do on the drums live and I was amazed. I had never met in person or saw anyone play the drums like Mike, From there I took lessons for about a year. Mike helped me learn how to keep better time and also read music to help me play in my Church till this day I recommend anyone that is a beginner or an avid drummer. to try Mikes lessons they will surely enhance their drumming ability after taking his sessions. Thanks Mike Sincerely, David L Ransom ,Jr.
Brad is a true professional Drummer, Percussionist, Musician and Educator. He brings a wealth of knowledge regarding all aspects of drumming and music to his instruction while tempering it with practical experience. His positive outlook and approach make the learning experience enjoyable and inspirational.
My son has been taking lessons from Greg for about 8 months. He has made great gains and really likes Greg's style of instruction. It is great that he can come to our home and my son can learn on his own drum set. He is flexible when scheduling conflicts arise and always makes sure that my son gets a full lesson! We are very happy with Greg and I highly recommend him If you are looking for a quality, personable instructor!
Matt's teaching style is perfect for anyone who is enthusiastic about learning to drum and have fun. He is very chill, flexible, and really allows you to make the learning experience what you want it to be. His love for music and drums is evident and makes learning them that much more fun!
We love Bellas Artes! The teachers excel at combining technique and joyful discovery within an atmosphere of encouragement. My kids LOVE their lessons with Destiney and Constance and, more importantly, are learning to love to play music while being challenged and encouraged. Having such talented musicians who are so gifted in working with kids is such a blessing! Practically speaking, it is great because with 5 kids it is huge to have both piano and violin lessons in the same place, and they are always gracious in working with my schedule. We highly recommend Bellas Artes!
Sal is a great teacher! My son is 8 years and has challenges with autism, and is learning a lot on the drums.
Frank is the best choice for great music lessons, I had him as my drum instructor for around 3 years. He taught me everything I know now and helped me build a foundation to be a great drummer. I Highly recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to be a great musician and have FUN at the same time too!!!
I got to Taylor's class every Saturday, and have a great time! We learn to play each drum part of a rhythm. It is part history lesson and carrying on tradition of the song. In his class you can drop in and be able to play with no experience necessary! I think everyone should try one class, because you might be surprised how you like! you get to go away with worldly knowledge from a worldly man who has patience and fun all in one!
Hi! My name is Andy and I've been playing drums since I was 6 years old (now 31.) I'm very experienced and love teaching people how to play! I have worked at a children's music school in Chicago and taught lessons at multiple music stores. I also play multiple instruments and am in a band that plays shows around the city. I enjoy opening people up to music and showing them how fun it can be to learn an instrument
I have been playing drums for 15 years, and I played violin before that. I have played in numerous bands, and I put an EP with my brother's band, Needers & Givers. Some of the tracks were used in episodes of Gossip Girl, a TV show. I come from a long line of professional musicians in my family, including my brother Chris Hoffman, a professional cellist with many professional accomplishments including a piece that was used in the end credits of the movie Shutter Island! I am fluent in rock/pop drumming and many other styles. I like to focus on rhythm and coordination for beginning drummers. I am available some evenings and weekends.
I've studied drums with some of Europe's and Chicago's finest drummers. I can help you develop your technique, timing, feel and style on the kit at a pace that is perfect for you. No matter what your experience is, I will give you my best effort to help you grow as a musician.
I'd say that I stand out because I'm somewhat younger than other teachers but well experienced already. I am more up-to-date on the newer styles of drumming but have also taken the time to learn the classics such as jazz and shuffles. I like this job because it is my passion. I enjoy teaching and don't mind working with my students through their challenges. I always enjoy helping a student "cut the string" or "learn to walk" (drummers terms for breaking through challenging beginning rhythms)
