    (17 reviews)

    Ka H.

    Tad is really an excellent and skillful teacher. He is a technique-oriented teachers. Even though I played drums for many years, he found that my grip and gesture is not correct. He is very patient in correcting my gesture and practicing with me. He designs the teaching materials according to my level. Most importantly, he shows me some awesome fills and grooves and teaches me how to master it.

  8. #8 Peter Lenz

    (5 reviews)

    Mike j.

    I hired Peter for advanced drum lessons. My lessons are bi-weekly and at times weekly. It’s been 3 months since my initial lesson. I initially sought after drum lessons to help improve my skills in fills, timing, and to increase my foundation in Jazz, rock and Latin drumming. I found my accomplishments under Peter’s guidance to surpass my expectations. Peter is a patient teacher. He encourages you not to give up. His home teaching setup is efficient and the environment is conducive to learning. Peter is friendly so you won't feel nervous or uncomfortable during the lesson. At times when I’m stuck on learning a new a new technique, he offers good suggestion that actually work to help me “level up.” I have a busy schedule (like all of us). Peter is flexible and patient. He is always willing to accommodate his lessons to my schedule, learning style and goals I would like to accomplish. I recommend lessons with Peter to drummers (beginners to advanced) who appreciate effective teaching and value results.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Henning Stumm

(1 review)

Are you one of those students who find it hard to learn how to play the drums? Are you having problems with your coordination? Is your drum stick grip still that bad?

Woe no more. Henning Stumm will teach you the basics and the essentials for you to master drum playing.

While most drum lessons focus only on the technical aspects of drumming, my lessons, while certainly including these, are however not limited to just that. My lessons are designed to enable the student to develop his/her own creative style of playing.

This experienced and award-winning drummer focuses on building a strong foundation for all styles, playing time, hand and foot technique, rudiments and reading. He has been a successful drummer for 25 years. He also has a Bachelor's degree in Music.

I incorporate historic backgrounds and the spiritual relation of drumming in various cultures into my lessons. Through my long-time experience, I will be able to prepare future drummers better of what is to come so that, 5 to 10 years from now I will see many of my students become successful drummers in their own right.

Waste no time. Check out Henning Stumm's drum lessons and discover the rocker in you.
