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.

As a young guitarist, Ben was extremely patient with me in picking up new material. He took his time in ensuring my understanding of whatever we worked on. Ben allowed his lessons to be fun rather than all work, which was helpful for me as I was a younger student of his. With that being said he was excellent at pushing and encouraging me to get the most out of the experience. Ben was far and away the best instructor I ever worked with.

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.

With more than 25 years teaching experience, I am also a professional musician and singer/songwriter. I offer 1/2 hour ($22) and full hour ($40). Lessons include reading music, music theory, music history, and where applicable include instruction on voice and song composition. I am work with beginner through advanced students of all ages, and am skilled at uncovering and correcting bad habits and expanding students' knowledge of music beyond simply the instruction of their chosen instrument. I appreciate the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students, and teach all ages. It is especially rewarding to see children gain confidence and the ability for students to express themselves through music. Sharing my own passion for music by introducing students to a more immersive experience of music and music history across genres is not only personally rewarding but a unique aspect to my teaching style.

    I have been studying music and learning to play the saxophone with Mary for a year. I have been through many music teachers in my life as I used to play the piano since i was 10 years old. Most of the music teachers I have found are only interested in teaching how to play the instrument. Mary not only teaches the finer things about your instrument of choice but brings to it her overall knowledge of music theory, holistic studies, and her love of God and is able to wrap it all together where you know without a doubt music is definitely a gift from God. The one thing that truly amazes me about Mary is she takes the time to gets to know you, your personality, what techniques enable you to learn the best, your experiences and background and is able to intertwine it with her knowledge and experience and brings about a whole new understanding that I have never experienced before with other music teachers. What touches me the most and demonstrates that Mary really is concerned about the individual coming to a wonderful understanding about music is that she prays for each of her students before a lessons and ask God to help her communicate what that particular person needs to understand that day and how through music she can glorify our Lord and Saviour. I truly am blessed to find and work with Mary. She definitely brings about a whole new world in music.

    Ms. Diane is very awesome in teaching my 6-year old boy!!! He has a very little attention span (very much expected in boys) and she exactly knows how to bring him back on track. She takes time to revisit lessons when she thinks he can do better. It is always a pleasure working with Ms. Diane.

    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!


    I am bringing over 50 years of drumming experience, including 22 years of teaching music in the Philadelphia School District. I possess a vast knowledge of various genres of drumming. I can teach from reading music to improvisational skills.

    I have been drumming since I was five and before that... on pots and pans! I have been teaching drums since early in Highschool all the way through until now. I went to the University of the Arts and got my degree in Jazz Drum performance. I have played all of Philadelphia and continue to gig. I also do a lot of film work and so video lessons are a very practical model for me. I have a wide variety of styles and familiarity with different instruments and experience levels. Playing drums is fun and it should always maintain that otherwise, what's the point : )


    I give drum lessons to anyone who needs them. I will help you to develop your ability to play all around. I do speed coordination, rhythm, and the rudimental aspect of playing your drums.


    Teaching fundamentals and various styles of drumming. Accent on keeping steady beats and rhythms. Speed of lessons will depend on pupil performance. Will also have student pick a style of music and be able to play to it and will be critiqued.
