Brandon is teaching entry level drum lessons to my 7 year old. He is timely, patient, and effective. He communicates well with me and answers my questions and addresses my concerns immediately. I am not a musician so he patiently explains concepts to me too. We're enjoying the lessons so far.

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 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 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!

    As a beginner who is interested in learning many different styles, I am so pleased to have a teacher like Brandon, who is always showing me how to play something new. He also paces the lessons well and eases his students into good technique. I've certainly had teachers in the past who could be preachy about their purist ways and insist on drills for much of the lesson, but Brandon is great at picking up on what moves his students. I bet he could be a little tougher on me, but I appreciate his patience! Looking forward to keeping this going in the coming years!

      My children have loved their lessons with Jeremiah! He meets them where they are and steadily challenges them to do their individual best. Jeremiah has has what seems like a vast amount of experience with all types of music and instruments. The kids love his fun, hip, and exciting personally. As a mom, I appreciated the patience, encouragement, and passion he pours out on his students. His personality is unmatchable and makes all the difference!

        Rosendo is an outstanding percussion instructor and an exceptional human being. He puts all his passion for music and his invaluable kindness and benevolence in every of his lessons. Rosendo is also very professional, always punctual and extremely encouraging with his students. I have never seen Rosendo not smiling, and always heard him telling all the good he sees in his students.

        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.

        About

        I have a very wide range of musical influences which has helped me assist all kinds of students with their musical goals, from folk acoustic guitar to jazz piano to progressive rock to hip-hop and electronic music - I really feel at home in any setting and can relate to people of all ages and backgrounds. I play a myriad of instruments and like to help my students develop a strong understanding of the theory behind what they know so they can explore the patterns further.

        About

        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.
