Brian Harris is an amazing drum teacher! First off, he works with you, no matter how basic your skill level, by developing the most important and fundamental skills needed to become a good drummer. His lesson plans are tailored to your progress and ability, always providing the student with enough of a challenge that it isn't boring and it isn't so difficult that it is discouraging. He manages to pack a large amount of work into just 30 minutes, making for an engaging lesson, while holding scintillating conversation with you on anything drum related you care to talk about. He keeps the lesson focused with a great attention to detail necessary for perfecting those fundamentals, while telling you hilarious or very interesting stories about drummers or drum-related experiences. And from what I've seen I can confidently say that this man is one talented drummer. He'll give you several different rhythms to try out at home and when he demo's them he really works those drums like a pro, improvising and impressing you at the same time. Finally, I'm 23 years old and was self-conscious about starting drum lessons at this age, with no previous percussion experience or exposure. I simply became interested in it by chance and was recommended him by a friend, and I couldn't have been luckier. He welcomed me into his studio with open arms and had me grooving and more excited about drums than I had ever been. Brian Harris is the guy to go to for recording/studio work, lessons, drum tuning, or jamming, He knows EXACTLY what he is doing.
