Awesome teacher, he just jumps right in with you. Our first class I learned the basics of drums, names of each, some drum rudiments and then we went through some songs I liked and played along with the music. The lesson was fun, Mike is super easy going and provides lots of good feedback.

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

I am just beginning to learn how to play the drums as an adult for the first time. With in just a few months Tad has given me many tools to make strides toward feeling like a real drummer. The lessons are really fun as well as challenging. He pushes you to break beyond what you feel you are capable of. Awesome lessons, as well as super professional and in a comfortable cool studio. I am excited to see how far I will go with the help of Tad!

Kid is a great teacher. He's engaging and fun - always tailoring the lessons to the music my son loves and with an approach that's right for him. He's sensitive to what's going on with his students and responds with encouragement and just the right amount of push to move them forward. After only four lessons my son has grown a lot as a drummer and is having a really good time. I highly recommend Kid to anyone wanting to learn to play the drums.

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

This is definitely the place to come for top music instruction. As a drummer, Joe has taught me so much and is continuing to teach me more and more during each lesson. In Joe's studio; he's got sound activated lights, smoke and bubble machines, you can play along to RockBand (which is my favorite). For Joe, the sky is the limit. Always thinking of ways for his students to exceed their expectations of music instruction. I've been a student of Joe's for 10 years and he's always having new ideas to make his lesson more enjoyable. Joe's staff is always full of energy! His staff are dedicated to their students and is a lot of fun to jam out with them. The receptionist is great to get along with always helping the students rearrange their lesson to what better suits the student. Joe's one of a kind showcase is always put together with flawless detail! Reasonable rates. But, this is definitely the place to come to for top music instruction; for all ages!! Keep on Jammin' !!!

Daryl is extremely good and gentle with my young child's emotionally and physically (& he is extremely active) while at the same time balancing that with being serious and firm. He is creative with his lesson plans tailoring them to my child's age, personality, favorite songs and knowledge base. My son loves going 'to see Mr. Daryl to play drums'. Daryl even provides homework and teaches my child each component of the drums... Which my son can name and he is only 3. My family just brought my son his own set of drums so he can continue to practice regularly.

I took lessons with Pablo about three years ago and at that time I was mostly self-taught, never having formal lessons before. I was a punk rock drummer so I was caught very off guard when Pablo wanted to teach me Afro-Cuban patterns. He took me way out of my element with these grooves I had never seen before. While challenging at first, he really helped me through it by writing the patterns out for me and showing them to me again and again...and again. Pablo helped make me into a more well-rounded drummer and I still recommend him today. Friendly, personal, and a teacher who really knows what he's doing; be sure to give him a call.

Jay is the best!! I have absolutely no rhythm, but I needed to learn three songs on the drums and somehow - quite magically - made it work. He's patient and kind and smart and funny and, best of all, seriously knows his stuff. We had a blast and I totally rocked out!! I 100% recommend Jay without reservation.
