I've been taking drum lessons with Mike for almost a year now. I can say with confidence that I've been progressing from lesson to lesson under his instruction and guidance. If I were to describe Mike as a teacher so far, he would be the Yoda of drums; he's positive, gentle, and fun. But at the same time, he's firm and pushes you to be the best drummer you can be. Mike also calibrates his lesson based on your current drum level; he never teaches something that is too easy nor does he teach something that is too difficult. Instead, he has guided me through challenging but achievable exercises. Progression has been improving one baby-step at a time. This wouldn't have been possible without Mike's attention to detail, patience, encouragement, and continuous feedback. With that being said, these small baby-steps over the past year have led to tremendous improvement in my skills in 2016. Looking forward to getting even better in 2017. I would highly recommend Mike for private lessons if you wish to be a JEDI DRUM MASTER!

We gave my Dad Jazz guitar lessons for Christmas. He is an experienced amateur guitar player who is 51 yr old and wants to take his playing to the next level. He is an engineer that needs to feed his creative side. He said it was the best gift ever! Thanks for all of your help!

My son had never had drum lessons before so he was pretty bad at first. We can definitely tell the difference over the past 2 months when he is down stairs practicing. Scott is very patient and my son really enjoys his lessons.

Our daughter loves the guitar again thanks to Alexander! He has a great teaching style. We used to push her to practice before, but now she picks up the guitar on her own and can't wait for her next lesson because of her instructor. Glad we found him!

James is without a doubt, the most compatible musical instructor I have ever had. He is both talented and versatile as a musician, which translates to him being a very adaptable teacher. This flexibility was important to me because it meant he had something to teach me every lesson, even when my incredibly vague goal was "to learn to play the banjo". This skill as an instructor is attached to a personable human being who I believe could hold a conversation whether his student was a suburban teenager, like me, or the Dalai Lama. All of this is made possible by the most important quality a mentor can have: patience. James has an abundance of patience which belies his gentle firmness as a teacher. I was incredibly disappointed to hear that he was moving away, but I wish him all the best and hope he builds a new collection of students who are as committed to their craft as he is.

Devin is one of these guys that get it! Ive had a really good experience with him. He's been teaching me privately for about 2 years and has shown me how to connect what was missing in my playing to what I thought I understood! Fast forward.. I've just released a record and finished a 3 week US tour.....I never wouldve had the ability or confidence without him

I was a student of Sam's for about two years, and I was extremely pleased with the level of improvement that my drumming took in such a short amount of time. Sam is great at breaking down concepts and explaining them in an easy to grasp way. His analogies are both entertaining and informative, the perfect combo to make any concept stick. The best part about working with Sam is that I could bring any concern or problem I'd been having into a lesson, and he would instantly have a creative way of breaking it down and showing me how I should practice it. Sam not only taught me important technical aspects of drumming, but he taught me how to practice effectively, and how to continue learning outside of lessons. I would highly recommend Sam as a teacher for students of any level.

About

Lessons are available for students of all ages and ability levels. I can travel to your home or you can come to my home (drum set and marimba are available at mine). Lessons are for all different kinds of techniques: rock and jazz drum set, rudimental/marching band drumline techniques, concert and orchestral, etc. Lessons cost $20 for a half hour and $40 for an hour. You can do an hour lesson every other week or a half-hour lesson every week. We will work out a schedule with whatever will work for both of us.

About

My name is Devin Hammond, and I play drums. I have been playing for over 5 years now in genres ranging from funk, Latin, jazz, gospel, and contemporary music. As an instructor, my main focus is to give students the fundamentals of being a musician and learning how to not just play music but feel it as well. I am very flexible and open to my students and will give them everything I can offer as an instructor.

About

The AAMC has been A2's home for budding musicians since 1998. We offer private lessons in guitar, bass, drums, piano/keyboard, voice, saxophone, flute, clarinet, ukulele, violin, viola, cello, double bass, rock band classes, jazz band and blues band classes and summer day camps for kids ages 8-16. We offer lessons 7 days, year-round from experienced, enthusiastic, and creative teachers. Our instructors are not only accomplished players but skillful teachers. Every instructor we employ has been through our rigorous screening to ensure that every lesson is both geared for the student's learning style but is also steeped in the fundamentals of music. Our students are of all ages with the common goal of achievement. Our students learn to speak the universal language of music and are coached in the application of the skills and concepts that make a well-rounded musician.

About

Get your hands to work! We offer drum classes for all ages and genders. We are also offering percussion accompaniment for all forms of artistic expression. You name it, we've done it.

About

I provide lessons for students that range from beginner to advanced levels. I travel to you, as long as you own the instrument you are planning to study. I can assist students in reading, understanding theory, and even writing their own musical scores! Every lesson is personalized for that particular student and, if desired, can be geared in any direction they so choose --recording, theory, song choice, electronic additions, producing, etc. I am very open to adjusting my lesson plan to fit your personal style. As for myself, I have been playing piano and guitar for the longest, but I consider myself a drummer at heart. I have played with many live acts, released a number of recorded albums (some solo and some with groups), and most recently, I've been playing with the touring act, Stikyfut, as their drummer/backup vocalist. Music has taught me so much. It has led me to many adventures, introduced me to so many interesting people, and caused me to think introspectively about my life and the world that I can hand over to future generations. Hopefully, through providing lessons to students now, I can pass along the same love and excitement I have for music to these kids. My rates are $25/half hour lesson and $45/hour lesson.
