I was taking drum lessons with Rob last year and a little bit the year before that. He always was the person that could teach me things the best. I could understand how he explained things and he would give me pages of exercises to take home so I could practice and make sure I understood the topic. In the time I took lessons with him, I learned more than I did from any drum teacher. We even got into more crazier styles like afro-cuban beats and up-tempo swing. It was always something interesting. I mean it when I say that he was the best teacher ive had :) -Julian Pyle

Sam is an excellent drum instructor! I have been playing drums most of life and have taken lessons from many teachers. But none have been as instrumental as Sam in propelling my drumming skills to new heights. Whether in-person or via Skype, Sam's lessons are effective, professional, and responsive.

I left my drum lesson with Patrick all fired up! Patrick covered the basics for me, as someone brand new to playing drums, in a way that covered a ton of territory while getting me playing and improving by the end of the hour. I appreciated Patrick's embodied approach to drums, encompassing ergonomics and the physicality as well as the mental part of playing. He incorporated examples from music I knew and his enthusiasm and broad knowledge for drumming came through. I can't comment on his punctuality, as I was running behind schedule, but he was accommodating and responsive. His rate was not the cheapest I was quoted, but his expertise, clarity, and personableness were well worth his rate. Highly recommended!

My son has been going for drum lessons to Dan for about 5 months now. Dan is a good teacher. He is very patient and encouraging and Dan has been able to help my son with his love for drumming. His hand and foot coordination is getting better and he is always looking forward to drum classes. Dan is a professional and easy to work with, fun and punctual. He makes his class a learning experience without compromising on the enjoyment.

I am an aspiring rap and R&B producer. I have been producing music for 6 years and I've been an avid drummer for 12. Since I started producing with a background in drumming, my productions were very advanced drum wise, but I was always hesitant to learn theory beyond playing C Major and looking at Piano scale charts. Theory always seemed daunting to learn. While I was growing creativity and technical in all fronts, my lack of theory became a crutch. Andy sat down with me and broke down scales, chords, general theory tremendously well. Since my learning needs are far different from traditional piano education, Andy has able to accommodate me and shift the lesson plans to what I feel is most important. I'm not trying trying to learn how to play 'Marry has a Little Lamb'. I'm trying to make music that moves people, and through lessons with Andy, I'll be were I need to be in due time. Highly recommend him.

Serious about learning the drumset? Charlie is your guy. Great teacher, always improving his game both as an educator and a player. Great guy, cares about his students progress. You better practice too! Charlie teaches out of love for the instrument, if you don't practice he may just refer you somewhere else! He is one of the area's best-kept secrets.

I had never had a drum lesson before but thought it would be something fun to try! Jaren was really good about breaking down what was necessary for me to know for my spontaneous lesson. I felt fully comfortable and encouraged learning from him. He was very knowledgeable and didn't make me feel anxious or intimidated trying something new which I really appreciated. He provided a professional, yet fun experience for me that I won't soon forget!

Joe is a great teacher. He has been instructing my son, a16 year old, for the last 2 years and has really connected with him. He's knowledgeable and knows how to keep the kids excited and interested. He is able to split his time with piano and guitar and make progress with both. He's always on time and super reliable!!

About

My name is John Dickinson and I am a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music. I've been teaching private drum lessons for a few years now to students of all levels and ages 35 minutes outside of Philadelphia in the town of Kennett Square, PA. I focus on teaching groove, good time, learning to listen more to the music when playing, listening and playing different styles of music, and most importantly, I remind my students to get out there and play with other musicians. I try to keep my lessons fun but at the same time making sure my students keep up with the material I give them. Please contact me if you or someone you know (whether it be a friend, cousin, or your child) wants to start taking drum lessons. Thanks. -John

I will gear my teachings towards your strengths at first in order to strengthen your motivation. From there we will decide what genre you want to work on and develop immediately and we'll get cooking. I'm very good giving you clear cut information and sizing doses of information per lesson.
