My son took percussion lessons from David Nathan. My son describes him as a solid teacher with a good ear, patience, and good direction. As a parent, I appreciated David's communication -- he would send regular emails. I know he would do a regular showcase of all his students, which was also a lovely thing.
Chris is a excellent drum teacher. He has rock solid fundamentals and really gets down to the root level of not just how to pay but the mechanics of what makes excellent posture and the movements themselves. I highly recommend him to anyone who is considering taking lessons.
I have my son Diego taking drum lessons his first time and Mr. Bartlet is been such an amazing teacher. He is very patieby and smart I do highly recommend him.
My wife always wanted to learn to play drums, so our whole family started taking drum lessons from Mike Baez. The training has been fantastic! With the electronic drum sets, Mike can give students personal attention at their individual levels. Great instruction! He is so good with the young students, also. It has been fun and educational. He has also given individual instruction to my sons in snare, keyboard, drum kit, and tympanni. They have progressed so much with Mike's help!
Excellent, compassionate teacher. Well-trained and talented instructor of AUTHENTIC African drumming. Her method is encouraging and totally without judgment. Whether you are a beginner, novist, or a professional drummer, Sherry will help you to find and achieve levels you never thought possible. Oh, did I mention that she traveled to Mali for graduate-level training by Mamady Keita ? ... and that she performed a Djembe solo for an entirely West African audience--it was magnificent! Sherry is an accomplished performer of the djembe and djun-djun drums, bout her passion a greatest contribution to the legacy of West African drumming is her unmatched teaching and training skills.
As an older student, I appreciate the dedication, determination, discipline, and direction exhibited by Phil during drum lessons. He has an outstanding ability in both playing and teaching. He understands perfectly what I am striving for and tailors the lesson to this requirement. He is knowledgeable and more than willing to impart this knowledge to the student. By providing background in the history of drumming as well as practical advice he makes the lessons informative, unique, beneficial, and fun. Barbara Wray
I've been taking drum lessons from John for a few years now and can't say enough good things about the experience. He's patient, kind, supportive and has brought things out in my playing that I never knew were possible.
I'm very pleased that my nine year old daughter is enjoying her soon to be second year with Franklin Music Academy. Most of all I would like to thank JP for all of the encouragement and confidence he has given her. I appreciated all of the hard work he puts into making piano lessons fun and interesting for my daugther.
Amazing teacher, will highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent drum instructor in Austin.
Sidney seems to be doing very well and making great progress with his drum lessons. We are very content with the work Mr. Pete is doing.
My son has been enjoying private lessons with Mr. Haun for two years. I believe this is beneficial for his band activity @ school. Also Mr. Haun works with my work schedule to accommodate my son's lesson!
We had Matt as a teacher for three years, for our children. He was so talented and such a blessing. I am quit convinced that Matt would be able to successfully take on any challenge he is given.
I met Zack many years ago and began to receive drum lessons from him. Having no prior knowledge or conceptual understanding, he slowly and patiently introduced me to the drums. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner and as my skills progressed his lessons were more in depth. Everything from basic music notation and theory to keeping time and advanced drum patterns were covered. Very easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable at your skill level. Never any judgements and plenty of positive reinforcement. Best drum lessons I've taken!
Terry is a very kind, polite and professional musician. He arranged to come and meet my son for a lesson. I appreciated his candor and professionalism in letting us know that he would not be able to meet my son's particular lesson needs.

I am a certified teacher to tutor science or math; guitar, bass, or drums; or pool/billiards or tennis any day of the week.
I look at getting you confident on the drums ASAP. I don't read or teach reading music per say. Although we will occasionally look at some drum notation, charts and rudiments, it's not a focal point, but more a tool to help explain a concept or idea. For more advanced players, I'm not going to tell you what you are doing is "right" or "wrong" and typically won't mess with your self-taught or learned technique unless I feel it will prevent injury or improve your playing. For the stronger players I will try to stump you with new concepts and styles you probably wouldn't have come in contact with playing in your rock band. These ideas will strengthen your overall playing and adaptability. My goal is to get you to a place where you can teach yourself.
Beginner, intermediate and advanced students are welcome. I have a studio in South Austin. Since the age of 15, I have been performing. I have played in rock, jazz, pop, Zydeco, cover, funk and experimental projects. As a top drummer for hire in town, I'm the guy you call on short notice when your drummer can't make it for some reason or quits. I also play in a classic rock band and in a variety band. I have extensive stage experience as well as studio experience. I am specifically interested in students who are prepared to take their abilities and stage dynamics to the next level. I teach from the perspective that some musicians have a lot to say (dynamics and phrasing) and some musicians have a large vocabulary (many chops). We will work on what you have to express and say and how to say it through the most passionate and powerful of instruments. Also, I have worked for a Fortune 500 company and have been in the business world for numerous years as a headhunter and consultant. You can rely on a conscientious and professional experience. I also have numerous years of experience as an adult educator and a coach. Rates are $35 per hour at my studio near Riverside Dr. and Pleasant Valley. I love drums, and I love teaching. Call me! Let's set your free first lesson.
The goal of my business is to give children and young adults the opportunity to create music through song (vocal) and drums. My vocal and drum lessons are suitable for any skill level.
I have been drumming for 11 years now, and i am originally from south africa, so i have my own style and twist of drumming that i would love to share.
I've been playing drums for 10 years, and have a highly versatile knowledge in various styles of music. I can play jazz, salsa, funk, rock, metal, shuffle, bossa nova, etc...
