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.

I have taken guitar lessons from Ric Oliva and he had worked with my daughter on some music projects. Only one word to describe Ric s ability to teach and perform , "the best". He will take you to that next place wherever you want to be with a better understanding to your passion. You can't go wrong.

John has helped me take my drumming to the next level. When I started lessons I was fairly new to the drum set and did not know how to read music. Over the past two years he has completely transformed me from a beginner to a gigging musician. John is patient, laid back and very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to drummers of all skill levels.

I'm an adult beginner student so if you're like me you have a ton of resources online and no idea where to start. Spencer has his own teaching material that tackles different aspects of drumming. It is more interesting than the standard drumming material recommended by everyone and quickly gets to a challenging level. Once you're at the lesson, he observes you keenly from all sides and quickly points out inefficiencies/awkwardness in your technique. I also like his attention to detail - I requested help with learning the drum part for a song. Although it was new music to him in an unfamiliar language he prepared sheet music for the whole song by the next lesson. Of course, it will be a while before I have the ability to actually play what he wrote but I appreciated it nevertheless. :) Thanks for reading and highly recommend him as a teacher!

Verified review

My son, who was 10 years old at the time, took drum lessons from Craig for a school year. The only reason why we stopped was that we moved out of state. Craig was a terrific teacher and mentor. Clearly he knew music and how to teach it. He was very positive and encouraging, not to mention patient. His price was affordable and the cost of the material was reasonable as well.

School of Rock

    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

      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!
