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 :)
David has been my drumset teacher for about one year. I like how he makes me write out rhythms and he also taught me how to create drum beats. I've leaned so much studying with David.
My son really enjoys the drum lessons and has learned a lot in a short amount of time. We are very satisfied!
Great instructors, very friendly. Sam was the best drum instructor. I learned a lot in a short time.
Dave was very patient and fun for my 6 year old who started drum lessons last year. The progress my son has made and his developed love of music is quite impressive. Dave is also always prompt and professional, as well as flexible. Perfect match for us!
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.
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 !
My wife and I am very fortune to have Andrew Sole as a drum teacher for our twin boys. Our boys have been taking drum lessons from Andrew for two years now. His teaching skills and care are main reasons why our boys enjoy his drum lessons. We highly recommend Andrew's drum lessons to all. Thank you, Andrew!
Matt has been teaching guitar and drums to two of our kids in our Glen Ellyn home for many years (10+). Their musical abilities have improved year on year and Matt always keeps them challenged and interested in learning more each week. He has a great way with kids, he arrives on time and is flexible in his scheduling. I would recommend him to anyone just starting out or to someone who already knows the basics but wants to improve.
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.
I contacted Jerry,inquiring about in-home guitar lessons for my daughter. He replied immediately with helpful suggestions of an instructor. When I realized my daughter wanted a female instructor Jerry went out of his way to find out more about my daughter and the kind of instructor who would be compatible with her. He then suggested one of two female instructors he felt would meet her needs. I was impressed with the time and effort he put into helping me find an instructor for her. This was extraordinary that he would take the time to help me when it did not directly benefit him and he did not even know me! I had originally contacted Jerry because of his highly regarded reputation for teaching and instruction. But now I also hold him in high regard for his kindness and dedication to helping others find their way into the world of music.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Very professional and extremely competent. Excellent with small children. Would highly recommend.
I have played drums for 40 years and was in the music industry. I worked with Buddy Rich, L. Bellson, and G Krupa. In the area of rock, I have worked with Kansas, Alice Cooper, Rush, Chicago, BS&T, and many more. I teach a standard practical method but also apply what is being taught, so that the student understands theory and develops taste. In this way, they will get invites and earn spots at auditions.
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.
Simple. CDL (Chicago's # 1 Drum Lessons) is the only in person one on one drum instruction that offers an extremely original lesson plan on DVD to take home where you can not learn from another teacher, book, etc. Our custom curriculum has been thought out to get a student from point A to point B in their drumming extremely fast, and efficiently. We can also help with a students school band pieces. Just watch some of our sample videos of actual current students. That's our proof!
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.
