She is a Good and Patient teacher. My son is very happy with his lessons. The Lessons are not long and allows the student to take information home and practice. Her schedule is adjustable for a parent that works 3rd shift.

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.

Kevin was my first drum teacher. He was a close friend of my twin older brothers in the neighborhood growing up. The first time he ever took me seriously is when I walked up to him and said, "I'm going to become a drummer. I need you to teach me." His response: "Be at my house at 7:00 pm Monday night." During that first drum lesson, Kevin would not let me leave until I understood what an eighth note was. That was three intense hours later. I never forgot what an eighth note was. As his roommate at PIT in Hollywood, California, I watched Kevin become PERCUSSIONIST OF THE YEAR. As an Honors graduate myself, trust me when I tell you, he is the ELITE-Special-Forces in drumming! In teaching, Kevin is among the best of the best. I learned from Kevin, and then I learned from the best of the best...They're the same breed. You get what you pay for in life, in playing, teaching, and studio sessions, Kevin is not overcharging. I’ve been a music Producer for the past twelve years…and I hire him! You should too.

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.

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!

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.

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.

    Ron has been teaching my 13yo daughter for several months (she has been playing for a couple of years) and we are extremely pleased with her progress with Ron's lessons. Ron is punctual, professional, and always works with you at your level of expertise. He encourages his students to build on the techniques learned st previous lessons. He is a very skilled performer who is able to effectively share his skills with his students. Not all performers can be successful teachers, but Ron excels in both areas! He has corrected some bad habits and focuses on proper technique. I would highly recommend him as a teacher.

    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!

You can see me playing various styles on Instagram: Hemp see Tyler Hempsey

    There are several ways that distinguish me from other instructors: I am more versatile and multi-talented than most teachers; I am experienced in pop, jazz, classical, country, and other genres; I have performed over 1500 times in the last 20 years; I possess a music education degree; BUT - most importantly - I believe in helping you achieve YOUR goals - not mine. I do not approach teaching with a cookie-cutter approach.

      My son is 15 entering the 10th grade...plays high school band. I believe he has talent but lacks inspiration. I was hoping to find an instructor to not only teach new skills, but inspire and motivate.
