I have been taking lessons with Keith for over three years. He is an excellent instructor, and highly knowledgeable about drum technique and the music industry. He is a good listener who can hear where I am off on my playing and is capable of getting me back on track. It is a pleasure learning from him.

I am over 30 years old and went to Miles with zero musical knowledge let alone any experience playing the drums. Miles reaches that perfect balance of being patient and pushing me to learn more. He has introduced information to me at a rate that is appropriate and takes the time to work through the musical concepts with me. At the same time he knows when to push forward with more challenging aspects of playing the drums to get the most out of our lessons. Miles is clearly very knowledgeable and talented and I recommend him highly if you are looking for drum lessons.

My son has been working with Gary for the past couple months. Gary is an excellent drum instructor. My son has learn more from him than from other instructructers he's had in the past. Gary goes over several aspects of music and helps my son know how to feel the tempo in many different songs. He works I think five or so main things for drummers to know. He is encouraging and knows how to motivate my son without being too much like a teacher giving home work. He makes it fun and breaks it up into different sets of exercises. Highly recommend him.

I have worked with John for years. He is an outstanding professional, incredibly knowledge, and his many years of professional touring experience worldwide makes him an ideal teacher for adults and children. He is able to communicate clearly and can tailor his lessons to each individual appropriately. Equally as important, John is a good-hearted, kind, family-man.

We have used Dominic Thompson, Sr. at our services and he has been so professional. Always on time and he goes over and beyond what is asked. We needed our drums tuned and he did it with no hesitation because excellence is what he is about. You won't be disappointed with this young man.

About

I'm a young professional drummer with 17 years of experience in percussion. I got started in a school band and stayed sharp drumming in rock bands throughout high school, college, and even graduate school. These days, I tour the country as part of an indie/alternative rock duo. When I'm not on the road, I am available to give lessons for beginner- and intermediate-level drummers. My approach to drumming revolves around skill and enthusiasm for the craft. I owe much of my proficiency and success to a private instructor I had years back. I'm starting Proven Drum Lessons because I'm confident that I can make the same type of lasting positive impact on today's crop of students. For what it's worth, I'm also an economist with a Master of Science degree from a prominent research university. Hence, the intersection of my background and experience makes me uniquely qualified to offer perspectives on the financial side of life as a musician. This could also be of some use to an aspiring drummer. My pricing is reasonable and I'm a punctual, friendly, and reliable person. I've also developed patience, having taught economics to undergraduates at the university and community college levels. On a good day, I'd like to think I'm also a cool guy and someone to look up to. If you or someone you know is looking for lessons, reach out! I'd love to start a discussion. Kevin Founder, Proven Drum Lessons

About

I am a sound designer with a jazz vocal background. I have been teaching privately for 10 years. I encourage songwriting, self-accompaniment, and motivation to practice and create for one's self. My partner has been a drummer for as long as he can remember. He will be teaching the drum portion. We have a set in our music studio for the studio. It is highly recommended that the student has a set of their own or at least a drum practice pad. Our program is designed for growing children and high school students. We are also trained to help you with college audition processes.

About

I do drum set and snare drum lessons including sticking, stick control, technique, double bass, time, rhythm and meter. Thank you for your interest. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Mike is an amazing teacher! He is incredibly knowledgable and is willing to work with you where you are. I was around 34 when I started taking drumming lessons with Mike and didn't know much about reading music. It was my first time holding drum sticks and within the first two lessons I had a good understanding of how to read notes and apply what I've learned practically. Within the first couple of months I was doing well and could pretty much understand how to dissect a song, play along and keep up with the pace. My questions were always answered and he worked with me so well whenever I was stuck. Beyond teaching music, Mike very encouraging has an impressive ability to work through intellectual obstacles, equipping his clients with the tools they need to keep progressing and moving forward. I WISH I had starting working with Mike when I was a young kid, but he was probably not born yet...and two continents away. I wholeheartedly recommend this teacher!!!!!!! If you have an opportunity to work with Mike, take it!

Although we ultimately decided my nearly 3-yr-old son is still too young for drum lessons, the lesson went well. Marty reviewed the names of the different drums in a drum set, let my son play them some, and then tried some rhythm exercises by clapping and counting. He is very patient and good with children.

    Teachers play along with students as they learn the basics, so lessons are fun by default. Students in the city also get access to a practice room and a comfortable metro-accessible space in the middle of DC where they can meet other musicians to play with.
