I've been taking lessons with Tad for a few weeks now and I've been loving it! I came in as a total novice and Tad has helped with my confidence and technique as a drummer. His lessons are always very thorough and he's been patient with all of my questions, making sure that I understand all of the material :)

The drum lessons I've taken with John over the last few years have been invaluable to my drumming, whether it's solo in the studio or playing with others on stage. I had just started to play when we began lessons, working with stick control and timing. John provides an encouraging, positive atmosphere to build skills in technique and efficiency, and outlines practices and exercises to do on my own outside of the lessons. He also introduced me to essential warm up stretches and exercises, which are very handy for endurance or just ensuring I don't wear down too quickly while playing. John's lessons have been paramount to my goal of collaborating and performing with other musicians; I've advanced greatly since I first began studying with him. Highly recommended if you're just starting to play (as I was) or to fine tune your methods and learn something new if you've already been playing a while!

Devin was a fabulous teacher for my teenage son for several years. Absolutely the best we've had! Devin brings a great combination of classic studies with music and songs that my son loves to play. My son started with "just" drum lessons but then asked to also take piano - just because of the influence of Devin. Devin brings out students curiosity to learn and understand and stretch themselves and their music. Couldn't ask for more!

I am a 55yo retiree. I decided to peruse drum lessons now that I have time. I’ve always loved the drums since I was a kid. Im not a tech savvy person but I managed to link up with Jim through thumbtack. I could not be more pleased. He is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He is very patient and very knowledgeable in percussion’s. The lessons are a lot of fun. I would highly recommend JIm as a drum teacher whether your just starting out as young person or you just want a hobby as an older person.

This dude is amazing, he's crazy talented with the drums and has a lot of patience with kids. My 9 year old son has been going to him through out the summer time and he as been teaching him the basics of drumming (of course). He even started teaching my son how to read music. He is reasonably priced, his spot is a little small and dark but hey it works. When you meet him tell him to play a little something he'll definitely impress you!

John is hands down a great drum instructor. He was very patient and attentive with me, especially since I had never had formal music training before. Now I really look forward to practicing! Highly recommended.

    My son enjoys learning from Mr. Danor. He is not rigid in his teachings, but very flexible. He shows patience and caters his lesson to the actual drummers skill set. Drum lessons are fun for my son and that brings a smile to my face.

    Rishav is the most incredible drum teacher! He is really kind so I felt comfortable asking questions and making mistakes. His knowledge of different types of drumming is really what impressed me. I feel inspired because of his love for drumming and his focus on really helping me improve my knowledge and drumming.

    I wanted to learn to play the drums but I didn't know where to start. I was recommended by a friend who knew Michael, so I took lessons from him without knowing what to expect. Because I live in a NYC apartment, I used his practice room to practice, and he was generous to offer his time outside of our lessons to help me with some of the things I missed while I practiced. I took lessons from him for about a year until I began to get busy with my day time job. But during that time, I sincerely enjoyed learning from him. Michael is very patient and very articulate when he teaches concepts, and he is clearly very passionate about music. He is well versed and knowledgeable on all genres, and this got me engaged in different styles of music as well. Michael is a great teacher, but he is also a great guy. He has a genuine and sincere demeanor, and very prompt and conscientious with his work. I really enjoyed learning from him, and I hope I can go back to practicing drums again soon.

      Only my two older kids were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take lessons with Ryland. My older daughter had him for her rock band class. It was amazing how well he worked with this group of kids. They were inspired and morivated to learn, grow and perform. He helped transform them from individually talented musicians to a cohesive, professional sounding band in a fun, supportive environment. My son had Ryland for drums and guitar. They would work together for an hour and a half every week. Ryland had unbelievable patience and personability and was able to keep my son focused and fully engaged. The amount that he learned from Ryland about technique, theory and music is immeasurable. Although my kids have found new instructors, they miss Ryland and will forever remember the incredible impact that he had on them as musicians.

      Greg is a great percussion teacher. My daughter just started her lessons (drum set) with him (age 14), and she is learning a lot in just the first few lessons. She also performed in his recital at the end of last year. He is flexible with scheduling sessions and has provided a lot of information on after school activities. Greg also helped us pick out the right electronic drum set, so we didn't buy equipment that we didn't need. My daughter is having a lot of fun as Greg makes sure she learns the basics, but also is playing along with some of her favorite songs from the radio.

      Josh Roberts is the reason I am still in music today. He taught me when I was just beginning on drums and he gave me the best skills and insights on music I've ever received. He is a natural teacher and knows exactly what to say in order for the student to understand. He is the only drum teacher I've had because I never needed another one after I took lessons from him.

      About

      I am a professional drummer. I've toured around the world and have learned from drummers like Carmine Appice, Chris Coleman, Thomas Lang, Zoro and many others. I currently play with two groups (Whyte Planes and January Jane) which take up most of my time, but I enjoy teaching and educating aspiring drummers.

      If you want to hire an instructor who is a working professional musician as well as an accomplished teacher, look no further! Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, I can help bring your musicianship to the next level and give you real world advice on being a musician. I've been a professional percussionist in NYC for the past 4 years playing Broadway shows, orchestral concerts in Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, & Carnegie Hall, and with over 40 different bands of various styles including rock, pop, hip-hop, Latin, folk, African, and many more. I've also played with big name artists such as Kansas, Casting Crowns, Questlove, Andrew W.K. & Steven Curtis Chapman, among others. Last year, I toured Italy twice playing drums for 75 concerts in 3 months. I have a Master's in Percussion Performance, marched with Boston Crusaders Drum Corps, and have taught over 80 private students as well as drumlines at 6 High Schools in the past 10 years. I will also be one of the percussionists for Disney's Candlelight Orchestra at Epcot this December. (For more of my credentials, please check out my linkedin.com/in/brianradock) My parents have been professional drummers/percussionists for over 30 years with Disney and many acclaimed artists. My mother had a very successful teaching career here in Orlando before she relocated as the percussion professor at Rollins College and private instructor for over 80 students in Middle/High School. My step-father is the drum set professor at UNF in Jacksonville. Between their instruction throughout my development and my own professional experience, I can teach you how to play any percussion instrument, read music at a high level, AND how to find work as a musician in the future! If you want to play drums as a hobby, that sounds great too! I cater to each students needs instead of teaching the same syllabus I'm very easy-going, upbeat, and patient in my teaching methods. After all, music should be fun right? If you have a Middle School or High School student, I can prepare them for Solo & Ensemble with a library of hundreds of pieces or for drumline/drum corps auditions. I can also prepare students looking to be music majors/minors in college. I just recently moved back to Orlando, which is my hometown, so I am ready to build my teaching studio back up to what it once was ASAP. I look forward to meeting you and playing some music! (I am still working out details to have a studio space to teach out of, but can drive to you for lessons at your home or at your school. Will update this page once I have a studio space.)
