"Thereâs nothing like having fun and learning along the way!
Rick is a fantastic, high-energy, never dull, always motivating drum instructor! We are overly pleased with Rickâs charisma and his innate ability to connect w/ our 9-year old son. Over the last 3+months we have experienced great communication from Rick, great feedback, exceptional customer service and a fun, yet structured approach to lessons and homework assignments. Rick is always punctual. He shows up with a smile and is always prepared to teach and inspire. Since the beginning, Rick has been very interested in my sonâs goals and ambitions. My son would like to be a praise and worship leader as well as join the schoolâs band (drum line) one day. Rick has a very diverse background and skill set and takes time each week to concentrate on the areas my son enjoys most, while still managing to stay on task. Rick has been instrumental in helping my son to enhance and perfect his drumming abilities and add to his strengths in most all areas. Rick is very well spoken, educated and pays attention to detail. From basic to more advanced lessons, Rick has assisted my son w/ his posture, his grip and has introduced my son to new styles of music, all while providing a broad education in music theory in terms that my 4th grader can understand and relate to. Ultimately we are very pleased with Rick and are grateful that we selected him to take on this very important role. My son brims with excitement each week when he knows that itâs time for drum lessons. He wishes that Rick could come every single day so they could drum together! If youâre looking for a drum teacher for your child who is fun, patient, reasonably priced, experienced, analytical, and knows how to provide constructive criticism AND praise â then we highly recommend Rick! Rick has ensured each week that my son makes progress and all the while â heâs having fun!"
