His ground-breaking "Hear it, See it, Read it, Play it" teaching method allows anyone to learn drums and at the same time have fun, all while exploring new rhythmic adventures.

    Kris and the team at the Drummer's Studio are wonderful people ,and great musicians to boot. I couldn't stay with them long due to life and moving, but definitely enjoyed my short time with them.

    I am an adult piano student and I have simply had the most wonderful experience at TDS! I have had lessons with 2 different instructors, both of whom were wonderful! As an adult learner I am interested in playing for my own enjoyment, and I have found that I have learned so much more than I ever expected! Piano lesson evenings are my favorite night of the week! I highly recommend TDS for piano lessons.

    Wanted to take piano lessons, so I called the owner, Kris, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable in going with his studio. Charlie, my piano teacher, is very good. He's attentive, patient, and most importantly challenges me. Great experience so far. Highly recommended.

    What a great treasure the Drummers' Studio is for musicians in the area! Kris is extremely helpful and responsive. My new piano teacher is super supportive of an adult interested in taking up lessons after 30 years away from it. Such an all-around positive experience!

    We feel so very lucky to have Kris's talents available to us. Where else could you find someone who has toured and played with well-known drummers and bands so close to home? Our son has taken his playing to the next level with Kris and learned new skills and gotten familiar with the different styles of drumming. Kris also passes along his extensive technical knowledge so that students learn to maintain their sets themselves. Besides being a true professional, Kris is a wonderful person whose teaching style and over-all personality makes learning from him both fun and enjoyable. He loves what he does and it shows!

    The Drummers' Studio and Kris Russell continues to be an amazing experience for my son. Kris is extremely knowledgeable and makes learning fun and challenging. TDS has introduced my son to various genres of music and provokes his love for drumming. We could not be happier with The Drummers' Studio! :)

    Our son, now 10 years old is in his second year at TDS. He loves it there because it is fun and they get to sit and play behind full drum sets. They sometimes don't even realize they're learning because they seem to just be having a good time. It can be hard at times, but Kris is a terrific motivator and very patient teacher. He loves what he does and that becomes contagious to the rest of his students. We always recommend TDS to those interested in pursuing the drums.

    Kris has a way of making the material so easy to learn. Whenever I am stuck with a particular area, he breaks it down and we work on all of the parts together. Soon enough, it all comes together! I have learned A LOT since I first started taking drum lessons at The Drummers' Studio. I drive about 40 minutes after a long day of work to my drum lesson, and it is worth it every single time! I really can't say enough great things about The Drummers' Studio, a truly excellent experience that will leave you with great knowledge and skills.
