Jon taught my 13 yr. old son drumming for about a year and a half. My son loved taking drum lessons with Jon. Jon is an extremely talented musician himself and I think a highly qualified and fun drum instructor. I like that he works with each drumming student at that student's individual level from beginner -on. My son was a beginner so he even offered to help him with audition material for a try out if my son wanted to be in his school's marching band. I also like that Jon is flexible with your lesson scheduling and always does his best to fit someone in for a missed lesson. Jon is arduous about learning drumming technique and practicing after your lessons, but he is also patient. He is creative, enthusiastic and seems to want every drumming student to do well. I highly recommend Jon if you have a desire to learn the skill of drumming.

I`ve been taking guitar lessons from Steve for seven weeks now and I find him to be a GREAT teacher and very knowledgeable on everything when it comes to anything related to music. If you want to know anything about a particular instrument or Amp or anything related to music Steve can guide you. I`m an older student and mentally handicapped sometimes ;) and he`s very patient with me. I give him 5 stars and would recommend to him to anyone.

Carol has been wonderful as a music teacher. I was very nervous to start piano as an adult learner since it had been many years that I played. Carol is understanding, calm and motivating. She also challenges me with varied music and methods of learning. Although I am taking piano lessons, I am also learning music theory and the ability to accompany other instruments. I would highly recommend Carol as a music teacher.

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!

Jed instructed me in guitar and voice lessons. Jed is a great teacher - I learned a lot from him and he helped me to understand the parts of music that were confusing to me before. I appreciated his encouraging, laid back demeanor. He was never late to a lesson and was very accommodating with his schedule. He is extremely knowledgable of his field and I would recommend him to anyone!

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.

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.

Mike is an awesome musician and teacher. He is great to talk to and very understanding of your goals. His talents allow him to help you learn what you want to learn. With only a few lessons I feel myself climbing to the next level of my playing. I was skeptic about finding someone on a website like this, but Mike is a great find!

Danton has been an incredible gift to our family. We have gone through more piano teachers than I can count. My 14yo daughter actually quit piano and only decided to start again when she met Danton. My 8yo cried every time his other piano teachers show up, but when I tell him Danton is coming, he says, "Oh good!" (I think this is related to Danton using a blindfold during lessons. My 14yo son is taking bass lessons with Danton, and I can't express the joy I feel watching the two of them jam. Danton is cool. He is punctual. He is friendly. And he is also a great teacher. I am soooooo grateful we found him!

I have wanted to take drum lessons for a long time, (after a brief elementary school band experience), and have been extremely happy with Jeremy's teaching, and my overall progress in the last 4 months. He challenges me to learn something new every week, and always works with me to figure out a new approach to new things that I am having a hard time learning. Even after a long day at work, I look forward to our lesson and his guidance in realizing my dream of someday being able to play along with friends and family. I highly recommend him for lessons.

Our son Adam started taking drum lessons about 5 years ago. He was lukewarm about the drums and his drum teacher and it was a struggle to get Adam to go to his lessons. Adam considered abandoning the drums and I persuaded him to switch teachers and see how he felt afterrible seeing the difference. We were lucky enough to find Ed who turned Adam around almost immediately. The reasons were enthusiasm, tailoring and just his affable nature. Adam started to play songs that he liked as opposed to what his former teacher prescribed. Now about 4 years later and Adam loves playing and barely ever misses a drum lesson. He likes Ed as a person too.

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.

Mark Beecher is an incredible teacher and person. I took drum lessons (focusing on many different areas of percussion including jazz kit and rudamental drumming) for about a decade. During that time, Mark worked with me very closely and tirelessly to impart some of his incredible skill onto me. Would absolutely recommend taking lessons with Mark.

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.
