Drum Lessons (for adults)
Drum Kit lessons with Lael is fantastic! He listened to my desired goals, took notes, and by the end of our 1st session had a beginning plan developed for me to reach them. He carefully dissected everything from our discussion and custom taylor a plan for me. He has a genuine best regard for the students safety, well being, and quest in learning percussion. Hire him....you will not be disappointed!Jul 28, 2016Verified
Drum Lessons (for adults)
Lael took the time to find out what it was I personally wanted to work at and improve on and has based lesson plans to achieve those goals. He has pinpointed certain techniques in my playing that could be more effective that I would've never identified myself, then helped me correct them. Lael is very communicative and friendly; there have been no instances of dissatisfaction on my end. I would recommend Lael as a drum teacher for anyone who is trying to get the same experience out of lessons as me.Nov 18, 2015Verified
Lael is an amazing teacher and person. He always brings great energy to each lesson and has inspired my kids to love the drums and music.Feb 24, 2015Verified
Lael is, hands down, awesome! I've only been taking drum lessons with him for a short while, but, so far, my experience has been nothing short of fantastic. Drums are new to me, but the world of private music lessons are not. When I was younger, I took private lessons for violin and guitar...went through a slew of instructors, but none come close in comparison to Lael. It's very apparent that music and teaching is his passion. He truly puts his heart and soul into this business. The structure of his music program is very well planned and impressively professional. The energy he brings into teaching is magnetic; he has a magical way of making sure you leave your lessons more excited than when you arrived. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone!Jan 10, 2019VerifiedDPV Music Lessons's reply
Thank you, Katy. I'm honored to work with you and ecstatic you are enjoying lessons as you are!
My daughter has been taking percussion and vocal lessons for over 3 months now. I am so impressed with Lael and how he empowers her. She LOVES her lessons! Lael is so diligent and committed to his students. So incredibly professional! His rates are a bargain considering how much he invests. ❤🎶🎤🥁Jan 7, 2019DPV Music Lessons's reply
Karen...I thank you so much for these words. Your daughter is amazing and magical in her very own ways. I love our time together.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Introductory Lesson: $75 DPV's Package Rates are all based on 3 things. 1) Level of commitment 2) Number of Benefits chosen 3) 'In Studio' or 'In Home' The more commitment, the cost effective each lesson becomes. The more benefits chosen to participate in, the same and the more reward. "In studio" at Lael's house in La Vergne is also more cost effective than 'In home' at the students house. Something for every lifestyle and level of commitment is offered by DPV Music Lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?FIND OUT WHAT THEY WANT TO ACHIEVE! That's Lael's first priority...He always customizes the lesson to fit with the students goals and like. This is done via the 'Enrollment Phone Call'.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Owner/Instructor Lael Eccard has an Associates of Arts in Performance for Drums from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA.
