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!

Having drum lessons with Zak was an amazing experience for me; I love the way how Zak dictates his class and how he can make you feel truly conected with the instrument. Also is awesome the patience he has, and the good vibes emanating from him all the time.

Marco was very patient with me when teaching me the drums for the first time. I was definitely hesitant trying a new instrument but he has a lot of experience in both drums and piano and was able to help me read music and actually hold the sticks properly! I recommend him if you are thinking about learning the drums!

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 have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.

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.

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.

Connor took my 3 yr old on as a drumming student and was very helpful, patient and engaging. He is an awesome musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

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.
