Drum Lessons (for adults)
I'm a 56 yr old woman and decided to learn an instrument. I chose drums due to how it helps with memory, moods and so many health benefits. Justin made it easy for me to learn but also challenged me to learn the songs I thought were to hard. He instilled a sense of confidence in me to continue and I looked forward to my lesson each week. I didn't have a boring workbook, I just picked my favorite songs and he taught me how to play through them in no time. Justin is an excellent teacher and drummer, and makes you feel comfortable as soon as you meet him. I had to stop drumming due to shoulder complications but will definitely call Justin when I can return.Jun 6, 2017Verified
Drum Lessons (for adults)
I recently picked up a drum kit at a garage sale hoping the kids would take an interest. No such luck! I decided not to let it go to waste and started lessons with Justin Oliver. I could not be happier. My goal is to have fun learning something new and challenging...so far so good. Justin keeps things engaging and interesting and has an easy going positive nature. His love for the drums is infectious and he encourages you to expand your musical knowledge as well. He is a fantastic teacher!Mar 15, 2016Verified
Amazing drum lessons! Amazing guy! Justin has become friends as well as a great drum teacher. He can help with whatever style of drumming is needed and will work with you until you perfect your style.Feb 4, 2015
We were lucky enough to be introduced to Justin for weekly lessons for my 10 year old, and he is thrilled each week when Justin arrives. ( ALWAYS punctually, I might add!)My son is enthusiastic about his lessons, and he's progressed beautifully. Equally important, his love for music has been enriched by working with Justin. If you're looking for an engaging, responsible and all around amazing guy for drum lessons, Justin is your man. I wholeheartedly endorse him, and am delighted to have been introduced to him.Mar 6, 2015
Justin is always punctual, professional, and prepared. He is an encouraging teacher, meeting me at my own pace and ensuring that the lessons progress in the direction I choose. He offers constructive criticism and helpful tips to help make learning both fun and productive. I highly recommend taking drum lessons from Justin!Jun 5, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?1/2 hour lesson: $30 45min lesson: $45 1-hour lesson: $60
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In terms of teaching, I like to first get a sense of the student’s and parent’s (where applicable) goals for the lessons. In addition, I like to know what type of music the student likes and what previous musical background he/she has. I then work on building/refining the foundation of technique as well as playing musical examples to keep things fun and moving in a positive direction.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I received a BA degree from Berklee College of Music in percussion performance.
