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 :)
Terrance is an all around good hearted person and this is what he brings to his piano lessons. Personalized study and lots of fun.
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!
Dustin has been giving my 7 year old drum lessons for 2 years, he's great with my son, patient, talented and always on time. I can't recommend him high enough!
My name is Chloe Kim and I am a jazz drumming student. When I was hoping to develop drum techniques such as wrists and feet movements, a lot of Sydney local musicians recommend Oli Nelson without a moment's hesitation. From the very first lesson, Oli arrived every lesson early to warm up and be prepared for the class materials, so watching him play every time I get to the lesson, inspired me to enjoy and work harder on practicing and playing drums. During the lessons, Oli was always so generous with the compliments which encouraged me a lot, but at the same time, he challenged me enough so that I could always take things with me to work on. His general ways of explaining and answering my questions were very systematic and they were all in full detail. He also used to tell me the stories of related artists or albums to check out when I come up with certain topics or questions and that helped me immensely to not only understand but continually take a genuine interest in music. One of my favorite parts was when Oli demonstrated things on drums, as even when the tasks seemed complicated, seeing Oli playing them amazingly gave me hope and showed the possibility to be able to play them like him if I also practice hard. Overall, from my experiences, Oli has professionalism in his teaching method and I would strongly recommend to any age or level of drumming students to get lessons from him. Thanks again for all your hard works and efforts Oli, I really appreciate your passionate teaching and guidance.
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.
Paolo is the best drum teacher I've ever had! My playing has improved by leaps and bounds since I started taking lessons with him. Highly reccomended!!!
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.
I've been taking drum lessons with Thomas for a year and I have really improvedmy playing. He's an excellent teacher!
Gene DiGeranimo is an amazingly talented drummer who has a passion for his music as well as his students. My son has been his student since he was six years old. He is now 18 and is still taking drum lessons with Gene. Gene has become more like family and we love him. Everyone I refer to him always raves about him. He retains his students for many years because of his professionalism, dedication and love.
As Peter Ronick's former drum teacher, I can easily say that any drumming student would be well served taking lessons with Peter Ronick. He is a top working drummer, and has the skills necessary to take any drummer to the next level. Sam Ruttenberg
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.
No reason in the world you should not take drum lessons with Jon. He is very encouraging for improvement, patient, and energetic when it comes to progress. All around great guy too!
Jack makes everything fun and easy to learn. I’ve been going to his lessons for 4 months, yet it feels like it’s been longer because of the improvement and how well he connects with everyone. He is incredibly talented and has years of experience and knowledge of drums. I love his lessons and I would definitely reccoment him to anyone interested in learning.
My son really enjoys his lessons with Willy. Willy is a very patient and encouraging instructor and knows how to work with a child and get him to respond. We're hoping my son sticks with drums and continues learning from Willy.
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.
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.
Passionate about what she does ! Will take her time to teach you until you get it right as well as motivate you even further to keep learning. I recommend her for anyone with the desire to truly learn.

In my ukulele, guitar, and drum jam classes, curious beginners can pick up a new instrument in a fun, creative environment with an experienced teacher. Private and group lessons are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians.

The students will learn the following: * Basic musical concepts (pitch, rhythm, timing, scales, chords, harmony) * Fun songs and riffs * New styles of world music * Simple strumming patterns * Common rhythms from around the world * Easy fingerpicking techniques * Basic music theory * How to accompany other musicians Students can try making their own songs and much more!
