I am working with a delightful young man, Mike Salow, who works for Nic Payne. Mike has infinite patience, a good sense of humor and is quite knowledgeable about the guitar. I appreciate his willingness to veer from what is his experience of teaching beginners and accommodate some of my needs, even if I don't know what I'm talking about. Paula Solon
Amazing! So much more than any simple music lessons.
Lessons was perfect for a beginner guitar player. Matt is awesome!
Alec has been giving my son drum lessons since Dec 2015. My son had some training and experience drumming, but after he started taking lessons with Alec, it was noticeable how much his drumming ability was improving. Alec is a great drum instructor and works really well with my son. He starts with where ever you are at and comes up with creative ways to improve your playing ability. I would highly recommend Alec as a drum teacher.
I took drum lessons weekly from Leon for about two years. He was great! I had a little background in drumming and I wanted to learn some of my favorite songs. He took the time to create music for those songs for me and was always prepared. He figured out what my weak points were and always had great exercises to break through my stuck points.
Mike Menard is by far the most professional and knowledgeable guitar teacher I have ever worked with. His lessons are always structured, begin and end on time, and are relevant to the individual student. Whether you are an ‘old dog’ looking to learn a few new tricks (like myself), a beginner looking for an introduction to the world of music (my daughter), or anywhere in between, Mike Menard is simply the best possible music teacher for your individual needs.
He has a lot of patience, and does a really good job of explaining the mechanics and fundamentals of drumming to a beginner. My daughter loves her lessons, and I am completely satisfied with her progress thus far.
I've been taking drum lessons from Colin for a little over a year. He's knowledgeable, patient, reliable and personable. Highly recommend his service.
Ted is very patient with my son. He has focused on making drumming fun but also incorporates the rudiments of drumming into the lesson. The rudiments of drumming can be frustrating for younger children but Ted has found a good balance with his teaching technique. I was very impressed with my son’s progress within a short period of time.
My two sons Benjamin and Jeremiah took private lessons from Charlie. My older son Benjamin was with Charlie for years and absolutely loved taking drum lessons from him. My older son is off to college now with a great foundation of knowledge of percussion/drum playing and reading music that will last a life time! My sons would come home after their lessons every week with "Hand Written" percussion notes/music to practice. And they "did" practice because Charlie gave them the incentive and motivation to "want" to be successful. My younger son also took lessons and thought the world of Charlie. He too will always be thankful to Charlie for his dedication and patients during his drum lessons and he will always speak highly of Charlie. I would highly recommend Charlie Engen for music/drum lessons because he is the best around! Sincerely Sue Melville
My son has been going to School of Rock at their Eden Prairie and Burnsville locations for almost five years. He started when he was 8 years years old and very much a beginning guitar player. His skills on the guitar sky rocketed with the combination of lessons and playing in show rehearsals with other kids. He now plays drums as well. I can't say enough good things about the the entire staff at School of Rock. From the location managers to the teachers to the show directors. Everyone has been kind and respectful to myself and more importantly, my son. Great work guys!
I can't imagine how much smaller my son's world would be if we had not met Peter O'Gorman. Peter took a shy, introverted boy and taught him poise and self confidence in just a few years. My son, Collin, learned not just how to drum, but how to cooperate, how to give and take, and how to enjoy music. After giving Collin years of drumming lessons, Peter set my son up with a jazz drumming professor and a Jazz drumming ensemble at college. Peter continues to reach out to my son and to work with him when school is out. Thank you, Peter, more than I can say, for changing Collin's world. Barbara May Attorney at Law
During my lessons, Zach helped me work on my technique to get the most out of my drumming. I had never taken drum lessons before, but I wanted to learn. Zach was very patient with me. He did an excellent job at explaining everything and demonstrating proper drumming technique. Plus, he made everything fun and easy to understand. He would be a great teacher for beginner or intermediate drummers. Thanks again, Zach!
My son is really enjoying his drum lessons with Eddie and is excited each week. I am impressed with how much he has learned so far and looking forward to continuing.
My son wanted to take bass lessons and after a quick google search I found Mr. Gilmore's website. His rates are reasonable and his resume is solid. My son really loves his patient teaching style and is quickly taking to the basics of both playing and music theory. I would highly recommend Hugh to anyone looking for a professional, patient and knowledgable teacher.
This school has been amazing for our children. We have one in drums and one in guitar. They even enjoy practicing and look forward every week to the lessons. The individual attention and care is top notch. Highly recommend the school and the teachers we've had are Stan (guitar) and Kyle (drums).
I've been taking drum lessons from Jeremy at Klash Drums for a year now and he is the best! I started as a beginnner and have made amazing progress. He lets me work at my own pace but also gives me a push when I need it. I can play lots of different rudiments and beats and have a great time improvising. I also bought my kit from Klash and and it's a great starter set with a number of excellent features, custom assembled to fit what I need. I'm not going anywhere else for lessons and, when I'm ready, I'll get an upgrade on my drum kit from there, too. Klash rocks!
I'm a faculty at Mcnally Smith College of Music for 15 years. I've been teaching guitar, bass, drums, percussions and vocals. I've been a professional musician since 1972.
My students regularly outperform their peers and are heavily represented in the top ensembles in their schools, as well as all-state programs. Also, by teaching lessons at the student's home, they are much more comfortable playing on their own instrument -- young drummers are all different shapes and sizes, and so are their drum sets.
