I would definitely highly recommend Stephen Coffman for drum lessons. As a true beginner, I have been taking classes for the past several months. The classes are always challenging enough, but still fun and not overwhelming. Stephen is very good about teaching the fundamentals while going at a pace that will work on building confidence. He is very patient on slow days and always positive, which I feel are effective teaching skills for both beginners and advanced students., His musical education and experience are impressive and give him excellent credentials for teaching various styles and levels. My experience has been that of learning the basic fundamentals that will give me a good basis for developing more advanced skills and being able to play for fun while continuing to improve my level of play. Stephen is both an excellent drummer and teacher.
Our son John was in kindergarten when he took drum lessons with Robert. He enjoyed every minute of it. Robert was wonderful with him, and everyone there was always so kind to us. John decided to stop only because he was also playing baseball, and the rushing around was starting to get to him. I was brokenhearted. He still plays his drum set at home, and we know one day he will return because he loves music so much. We highly recommend center stage music school!
Great job with my grandson's drum lessons, Brendon. Thank you, he loved them.
I've had the pleasure of working with Billy for the better part of 3 years. Billy has fulfilled and surpassed every goal and objective that we were looking for when we brought our young daughters to Progressive Music Center. My daughters take Piano, Drums and Vocal lessons at Progressive. From the outset, Billy has lived up to his excellent reputation as the Preeminent resource for Music education in the Triangle Area by providing individually catered lesson plans along with caring, relationship-based instructors. Not only have my girls progressed musically in every way imaginable, but the program(s) that Billy provides serve as an enriching part of our lives socially and have helped build their self-confidence. We enjoy his passion for music, his experienced direction and our relationship with him has provided limitless opportunity for our family...it continues to be a great ride!
My son took his first official drum kit lessons with Clay. He was a great teacher with the perfect blend of technique, rudiments and practical application as well as allowing my son to explore music that he was interested in. Clay was incredibly professional and maintained high standards while still being laid back and accessible. Great for both his beginning lessons as well as further down the road when preparing for challenging auditions and concerts!
My teenager really enjoys lessons with Jeremiah. Jeremiah has a wide range of musical knowledge. My son already knew how to play guitar, but wanted to be challenged by learning more complex songs. He leaves lessons excited and feeling like he is moving into the next stage of playing guitar. Jeremiah also knows all the classic and modern music my son enjoys.
I took guitar lessons from Paul Warren at the Raleigh Music Academy for about two years. Paul was great and was able to customize a lesson plan for me to advance my playing ability faster. In addition to invididual instruction, the RMA has student shows so each student gets an opportunity to play in a live setting and gain greater experience and knowledge through interaction with other students. Each summer the RMA has a guitar workshop and guitar clinic where they bring in a well-known guitarist which gives students an opportunity to learn directly from a professional musician and participate in a Q & A with the artist. The RMA is great and really professionally run. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve as a musician whether they're a beginner or advanced player.
My boys love their guitar lessons with Adam. He tailors each lesson to their personalities / music likes and is very patient. He has really inspired them to become better guitar players. He has also been very flexible with lesson time/dates as the boys schedules are a bit hectic with sports / school, etc. So glad we found Adam!
I've been sending my son to learn drumming with Mr.Brandon since July 2016 at his music studio (da Capo al Coda) in Fayatteville. Mr.Brandon is very patient and kind with his students and very flexible if we need to change the time of the training if the need be. The studio itself is has pretty good spacing for the parents to sit down and watch kids train. Also, he is very reasonably priced. In the past 3 months, I've seen my son's love for music and drumming increase and I credit it to Mr.Boyles for instilling love of music/drumming in his students.
Todd is very personable and appears to be a good fit for my up and coming drum lessons.
Joe is a great drum instructor . My son has been taking drum lessons from him for a year and Joe is everything you would want in a drum instructor. He is patient with my son, he is encouraging, he is flexible with my working mom schedule and best of all my son is rocking on the drums! I highly recommend Joe for kids and adult drum instruction.
Isaiah Simpson is currently giving my 12 year-old son weekly drum lessons. Not only is it a huge advantage to have in-home lessons, but Isaiah is always prompt, kind, encouraging, and my son really enjoys his lessons. Isaiah is also very thorough by sending lesson notes immediately after the lesson. We look forward to continuing our lessons with Isaiah as he provides a positive learning experience, tailoring the lessons to my son's musical interests. He incorporates the music he enjoys listening to vs. just teaching a musical lesson. I would highly recommend Simpson School of Music for all the reasons stated above and then some.
The classes gave me a good head start on my musical endeavors. Yan teaches you not only what you need to know, but also a great deal of what you want to know. He listens to what you're interested in, and shapes your lessons to better meet your standards. Thanks to Yan, I'm currently the drummer for a band me and my friends have wanted to start for a long time. I highly recommend this class, especially for beginner and intermediate drummers. - Rydia H.
Having Joe Westerlund as a drum instructor was truly a great experience. I came in as an adult looking to get back into drumming after having played as a teenager. Joe was sensitive to this and planned my lessons accordingly. After 5 minutes with him, I could tell Joe was going to be a blast to work with for half an hour per week. He was quick to cater the lessons to whatever genre of music I was interested in playing which may or may not have matched his personal tastes. Which, to be fair, it's hard to pigeonhole Joe into a specific genre given his vast experience and wide array of bands he's played and toured the world with. His positive attitude and gentle demeanor was comforting to me as a newbie to the lesson format as an adult and I found our time together to be quite enjoyable. Not to mention Joe's technical abilities and musical talents which are fantastic. If I were to recommend anyone I know, kid or adult, to a drum instructor, it would hands down be Joe Westerlund. Besides being a killer drummer, he's also a genuine, great guy.
I went in for my first voice lesson tonight. I had no idea what to expect and was a bit nervous. Jill took me through a few postural and breathing exercises. After that, she played some keys and listened to my ability to match my voice to them. Before the lesson, I was super nervous to sing in front of a stranger, but by the end of the lesson I sang a song in front of her! (one of my choosing) I am really looking forward to the next lesson - my confidence is already improving!

Hello! I am currently accepting students for private one-on-one lessons on drum set, snare drum, mallet or keyboard. I also teach reading, hand-and-foot technique, four-limb independence, transcribing songs, ear-training skills, and style-awareness. My drumming palate covers Bebop jazz, bass and drums, calypso, soca, salsa, New Orleans, reggae, country, rock and hard rock/fusion double-bass drumming. This is not just a list of things that I have learned out of a book. The list of styles includes gigs that I have played in the past or are currently playing. If you are interested in drum set, I can help you to become the best player that you can be, or if you are just interested in pure chops, we can do that as well. I am a full-time, professional musician who has been teaching and playing for over twenty years. Since moving to Raleigh in 1997, I have played and/or recorded with many regional and local groups. I am qualified to teach beginners with no musical experience (including children), all the way up to semi-professional and professional players who want to take their drumming to the next level. Please visit my website for more information. Once there, you can view my videos or listen to my work on various albums in the audio section. If you are interested in seeing me play live, please visit my MySpace page for upcoming shows. I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks in advance.
I am a drum instructor with 20 years' playing experience. I play and teach a wide verity of styles such as rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop, etc. My teaching goal is not only to teach the art of drumming but to also show my students how to become a complete musician, how to listen to the other members of the ensemble and how to incorporate a more melodic approach to the drum kit.
I love teaching, no matter what the subject is or the age of the student. It is the most rewarding job in the room.
