Our boys are really enjoying their guitar and drum lessons so far, and are excited about practicing and playing their new instruments.
Was seeking beginner guitar lessons for my 10 yr old grandson. Brett was very professional, patient and tailored the lesson for my grandson’s level. Highly recommend Brett, awesome instructor. Looking forward to working with him for additional lessons.
We just started lessons with Ms Wanlu. My daughter’s first class was incredible in my opinion. She tapped into things that no other instructor ever did. She is clearly a young and talented instructor. We are excited about our future lessons!
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.
Our daughters have only just started lessons, but we are thrilled to have found Brandon -- he's personable, flexible, responsive, professional and we are confident he'll be a great teacher for our 10 yr olds.
I was not positive that drum lessons would be something that my 10 yo son would want to continue for very long. Asher is the perfect teacher! He paces instruction perfectly for my son. Excellent and highly recommended!!!!!
I wanted to learn to play Ukelele and YouTube wasn't really helping, so I started to get lessons with Luis cause I had seen him playing and saw some of his students playing as well. I was surprised I was playing my first chords in no time. He was so patient and made me believe I could do it and gave me that push to keep trying when I wanted to give up cause my fingers are so small, and I thought I was never gonna be able to get the chords right, but he would encourage me every class and even took the trouble to place my fingers the right way every time. I messed up a lot but he never made me feel bad about it, not even with facial expressions like other teachers do. I really appreciate the effort and interest he puts in every lesson. He's a very talented, experienced musician and a super patient teacher. Would totally recommend. 10/10
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.
I have been getting lessons from chad for about 2 months now, and I can honestly say he's the best teacher I've ever had. He has a very unique teaching style, it really engages you and doubles your learning curve. He is the perfect blend of fun and serious. :)
Our son (now 8) has been taking lessons with the studio for about 2 years now. The teachers are great, share their love of music, make the lessons fun and serious all at the same time.
I have been an educator for over 20 years. I tour and record with many international professional artists such as Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Wayne Shorter, Maxwell, George Duke, George Clinton, Phil Upchurch, Garaj Mahal, Dapp Theory, Meshell Ndegeocello and more. I am also a clinician and have worked as a visiting artist and artist in residency at USC, USD, Cal Arts, Berklee College of Music, University of Chicago, The New School NYC, Kimmel Center Philadelphia, and others. I have taught privately and publicly and I also host thericklessons.com featuring content from all genres. Every student excels in every lesson I give. Music is your companion for life. I teach all students to use music to enhance life whether it be for pleasure, learning, profession, sharing, and basically every healthy aspect of living and experience. It is an honor to have the ability to teach.
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

He is also toured Japan with the road company. In 1987, he enlisted in the US Army, and served 8 years as a featured soloist and clinician with the Jazz Ambassadors and Army Blues jazz ensembles. In 1991, he was a finalist and 2nd place winner in the first Louis Armstrong International Jazz Trumpet Competition sponsored by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.

The curriculum that I use doesn't discourage the learner, but encourages the learner. I enjoy seeing other people happy about learning to play an instrument.

I have taught lessons for the past three years in a small percussion studio I hold at my home. I performed in multiple ensembles when in college, such as percussion ensemble, African drumming ensemble, world mallet keyboard ensemble, symphony orchestra and band. I marched in the South Lakes High School drum line for four years and played snare for two. I am proficient in the warmups, techniques, music reading and writing, am open to teaching methods and the discipline of the drum line standard. I also have previous experience with teaching in the South Lakes High School percussion and drum line for two summers after graduation of high school. I am proficient in all main percussion instruments, including the snare drum (orchestral and rudimental/drum corps), the mallet keyboard, the timpani, and the drum set as well as auxiliary instruments, such as the tambourine, the triangle, the shakers, the hand drums, the djembe, and many more. Qualities As a musician, I am able to read, write and perform music, have great patience for working with others as well as always eager to learn something new. I believe that I am a polite, positive, encouraging, friendly, independent, and responsible individual and am always open for new experiences. With the snare drum, I can teach orchestral and rudimental/drum corps styles of snare drum. I focus on 40 rudiments, repertoire, technique (matched or traditional grips), musicality, expression, and quality of sound. I can also teach instrument tuning, care and maintenance. For the mallet keyboard percussion, I am proficient at marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, glockenspiel, balophone, and gyil. I also focus on technique, accuracy, musical expression, quality of sound, four-mallet (Stevens/traditional crossed/Burton crossed) and two-mallet technique and grip. On the timpani, I have the ability to teach timpani technique (French/German), musicality, tone quality, tuning accuracy and methods, and repertoire.

I focus on limb independence, musical expression, style understanding, ability to play and adjust with other musicians, tone quality, polyrhythms, rudimentary use on the drum set, versatility and popular repertoire for the drum set. Importance of Music I believe that music is a primary necessity in everyone's everyday lives and by studying music through instruments, we learn not only about these instruments but also about ourselves and how our musical personas play a roll in each individual's life. Percussion is as primal as an instrument gets. It dates to prehistoric times with ancient drums and the basic ability to keep a pulse. It is an instinct felt in all our lives through our heartbeat, yet it is a special craft that takes all life to perfection and creates unbelievable moments of joy and passion through music.
