Drum Lessons

Andy is a great drum teacher. He has taught me very useful skills to improve my drumming as a beginner and I can feel myself getting better with each lesson.

Andy is a fantastic drum teacher, I could not recommend him more. He covers any and all genres and styles of drumming in lessons, from the classics like rock and jazz, to more contemporary if you go that route. He offers great, constructive feedback, and really helps his students get better. I have worked with him at the collegiate level, however he would be great with any and all ages.

Andy's lessons were vital to my drumming and musicianship development. He always has the right exercise, worksheet or technical advisement to help you overcome whatever problem you are facing. A great and wise teacher.

I have had the great privilege of working with Andy for a number of years now, and my experience has been absolutely amazing. Andy approaches teaching drums with a fresh approach that is able to provide not only a comprehensive drum lesson but also an all around good time. I would recommend Andy to anyone looking for a talented musician and teacher!

Andy definitely knows what he's doing; he has in-depth experience teaching technique to all ages and knows just how to individualize lesson plans. He made me feel extremely comfortable immediately, and he's very flexible with scheduling, as well as payment.
