Duncan is an excellent drum teacher, especially for grade-school and middle-school aged kids. My 11-year-old son thinks Duncan's great, and as learned a variety of rhythms/beats to prepare him for middle-school band as well as playing along with popular songs. Duncan has an easy, friendly style with kids, and jokes with them to get a smile and put them at ease. That said, he is a serious music teacher, and has my son repeat exercises until he can do them correctly. My son has learned an awful lot in the last year and a half, and really looks forward to his weekly drum lessons with Duncan.

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

Both my son and daughter have been taking drum lessons with Nick for a year now and they love it! Nick is a wonderful, patient teacher and my children have blossomed as drummers. I would recommend anyone to take lessons from Nick...he is just great!

Jeff has given our son drum lessons for 7 years. Jeff is encouraging, understanding and very fun. He is excited and enthusiastic about our son's progress and passionate about music. He strives to teach what is necessary to learn and the type of music the student is interested in. Our "likes to sleep in" son has no problem getting up on a Saturday morning to go to his lesson!

Verified review

I took lessons with Kyle for about a year. My goal was develop a solid foundation so that I could learn on my own without picking up any bad habits. Matt definitely helped me reach that goal and then some. I feel pretty confident that I can learn new, challenging songs on my own now. If guitar lessons weren't so expensive, I would definitely have kept going. Kyle is an awesome teacher!

He's easily the best drummer I've ever seen in person. He's incredibly astute, he listens, and he used both music and education as a way to grow the personal as a whole. Jason is a gift to drumming, and is a great resource for musicians of all ages.

Ryan gives drum lessons to my 10 year old son, Josh. Josh has a blast! Ryan is technically a great drummer and instructor, but still connects with Josh like no other instructor has. I highly recommend Ryan.

About

Hey everyone! My name is Benjamin Copsey. I am 21 years old, very friendly and open to anyone with a passion for music. I have been a guitar instructor for 5 years now and would like to expand my clientele. In my classes, it's up to the student what they want to learn! For example, if you or your child wanted to learn guitar so you could play your favorite song and determined to learn it in a week, I would be the man to go to.

I care about my clients success in drumming and realize Oregon City may be a bit far from downtown Portland. If you need a ride from the bus stop downtown OC, I may be able to arrange that. I have been through symphonic band, Jazz band, Pep Band, Marching Band and in the last 12 years, full band performance playing on stage with local church worship teams playing all sort of styles of music.

With over 22 years of music experience and training, I encourage my students to find their voice in percussion. I integrate health, mathematics, and movement into a wholistic curriculum that fits each student. Though I focus on percussion, I play and write music with multiple instruments including the piano and guitar. I use these added skills to help my students learn to play with other musicians and enhance their musicality as a percussionist.
