Chad McCutchen is an excellent drum instructor. Not all good musicians are good at teaching but Chad is gifted in both areas.
Our daughter was 16 when she started music lessons with Chad. He always welcomed me, as a parent, to sit in and observe their lessons. At our first meeting Chad was very good to ask questions, listen and assess her abilities. He then designed a learning plan based on our collective goals. After each lesson our daughter left feeling encouraged, challenged and excited to try new things!
We especially appreciate Chad’s flexibility. Halfway through the semester, our daughter had a shoulder injury that made it difficult to practice drums. Chad was very understanding and able to insert a few guitar lessons while her shoulder got better.
Chad is a humble, creative, highly skilled and yet challenging instructor. We (parent and student) would highly recommend his services!
