I've been studying drums with Stevie for just a few lessons so far and I am very happy with how it's been going. His lessons are fun and dynamic, with the pace of learning adjusting to my skill level. Would recommend.

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.

Jason has been an outstanding instructor! He has not only fully introduced the basics, but has taken the lessons to the next level, providing a diverse experience with different types of beats and applications. His patience, encouragement, when joined with his wealth of knowledge has provided for an experience that not only challenges the learner to take their talents to a new level, but also has fostered a love for drumming. Not only has instruction been an encouragement, but his training has allowed our daughter to actually compete and win local and regional competitions, allowing her to advance to a national competition.

Jack makes everything fun and easy to learn. I’ve been going to his lessons for 4 months, yet it feels like it’s been longer because of the improvement and how well he connects with everyone. He is incredibly talented and has years of experience and knowledge of drums. I love his lessons and I would definitely reccoment him to anyone interested in learning.

I went into the lessons with some self-taught experience, and zero knowledge of terms/basics. Zhach is doing a phenomenal job of filling the holes in my knowledge, and expanding it into new territory. Lessons are an ideal blend of experimentation, new concepts, and the repetition of previously learned material.

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.

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

I have been playing drums for over 13 years and have several years of teaching experience. Some of the professional teachers I have studied with include professors at the University of the Arts, Drexel University in Philadelphia, and the renowned Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Israel. To develop a lesson plan that caters to the specific needs of individual students, I take the best techniques and methods from all my teachers and master classes with famous drummers like Steve Smith, John Riley, Mike Clark, Efrain Toro, and many more, and combine them with my own teachings. I can teach many different styles such as rock, jazz, metal, funk, hip-hop, and different Latin styles. My drum and recording studio is located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania where lessons can be held; but I can also come to you. The first lesson is free! No obligations thereafter.

About

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.
