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 :)
Guitar Chicago is the best option for music lessons in Chicago! Their instructors are patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. They do a fantastic job of working with you to achieve your individual goals. I started as a beginner with no guitar knowlege, and they helped me achieve my goals of playing multiple open mics and music events. I've also been able to meet and work with other Guitar Chicago students! They are always willing to work with my busy schedule, which is very hard to find with other schools or group lessons.
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.
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!
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
Great teacher and very patient! My 4 year old son started lessons with him this year and absolutely loves it. Mike really makes it enjoyable for him.
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!
I got SO much more than I asked for connecting with Altered Stage. Not only does my membership get me access to unlimited guitar lessons with an awesome teacher, it also includes a great space with all the equipment needed, a welcoming community of likeminded and friendly recreational musicians, and the chance to play on-stage with my fellow members once/month. I went from being the guy who could play chords and learn simple songs through tabs to someone who understands music theory and feels comfortable jamming with strangers at the drop of a hat. A huge change from where I started and not at all what I expected. AS gives members the chance to get involved as little or as much as one wants. I could not recommend them more to musicians at any level.
Eric is my drum set instructor and has been for a some months now. I started off completely new to the drum set with only some basic knowledge of holding the sticks, some basic rudiments and some degree of sight reading. Since I didn't know where exactly to begin with drumming, Eric gave me some basic rock grooves to work on which got me going. Then, when I realized I really wanted to try getting into my schools Jazz band, I asked if we could start working on that. He allows you to pick any direction you want to go in including learning to play along to a particular song that you like if that's what you want. Having some direction in your learning is extremely helpful and having an awesome instructor like Eric definitely helps speed up the process of learning. He also gives tips on your technique which also help improve your drumming - something you can't get if you're on your own. I've gone from barely being able to play the snare and bass drum independently with some rock grooves to some fairly complicated jazz drumming incorporating all my limbs and managing to actually practice and play them correctly. I definitely recommend taking drum lessons from Eric.
I took lessons with Brad for over 10 years. He was always willing to work with me on what I wanted to work on and was patient with me when I didn't practice (which was sometimes quite apparent.) He is a really nice guy and I couldn't recommend him enough.
We just had our first lesson with Mike and he really knew how to engage my daughter in her drum lessons. He asked her questions, got to know what makes her tick and used that to motivate her.
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!
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
I have studied drums and percussion under Matt for over a year now and can say without a doubt his patience and dedication while teaching keeps me motivated to better myself as a musician.
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'm a songwriter/music producer/live/studio musician experienced in a variety of genres. I have music studio time available, and I give keyboard/percussion lessons.
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.
