    Pat is a great drum teacher. I've been studying with him for about 4 months. He's taking me step-by-step through my lessons and my progress with his guidance has been amazing. And he makes it great fun. Pat's easygoing approach is a perfect match for anyone who wants to learn the drums.

    I am a drummer playing mostly rock music but wanted to become a better jazz player. After studying with Pat, not only did my jazz playing improve but my overall drumming and musicianship was noticably better. He is an excellent teacher and musician that makes lessons fun. Highly recommended!
