Chris is an awesome drum instructor. As a drummer myself, I can attest to the fact that he knows his stuff. He instructed my son, and was thorough, and professional. He was on time, and would even go long if necessary. He is great with a 7 yr old kid, and able to get the best out of someone with that attention span! We plan to have him teach again when our schedule permits.

A friend of mine referred me to Ross for drum lessons for my 13 year old son about a year ago and we have never looked back! My son has some challenging behaviors and takes longer than typical kids to learn new things but he is totally rocking out with Ross. Ross is more than just a music teacher, his passion for music and its benefits is obvious as well as his patience and understanding. He has a natural ability to relate to the needs of each student and teach at their level while pushing them forward at the right pace. My son loves learning drums and I love watching his confidence grow. I’m just thankful that we found Ross…Also, his student showcases are a blast!

Sean is an excellent and highly skilled recording engineer. There was absolutely zero time wasted. In first session, we took some time to understand what my goals were. I had no expectation of recording at the first meeting. Within two hours of showing up, my first demo was recorded with live drum and bass tracks added. He had great ideas for the arrangement. Looking forward to using South Texas Piano services in near future!

I would like to send this letter in support of Tom Lopez and his music lessons through the Universal City Music Studio. My son Jacob Bissell has been a student of Tom's since his days in the band at Kitty Hawk Middle School. At that time, Thomas was teaching Jacob drum techniques to supplement the lessons at Kitty Hawk Middle School. Jacob ended up his Middle School tenure as an honored/awarded musician with a great foundation in music. Jacob moved on to Judson High School, and auditioned for the marching band. He won a spot on the Judson Drum Line as a bass player. He held this position for two years, even though he could have moved to "snare position" his second year, but stayed on bass to help the Director. Around this time, Jacob was starting guitar lessons with Mr. Lopez. After two years with the Varsity Judson High School Band, Drum Line, Jacob decided to take a break from the marching band. At this time, it was found that Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) needed a percussionist. An audition was arrainged with YOSA, and Jacob was awarded a percussion seat with the Philharmonic Orchestra (YOSA's number one performing orchestra). He held this position with YOSA during his Junior and Senior years at Judson High School. His Senior year of high school, Jacob had to be in the music program to be eligible for YOSA, so he talked to the orchestra director at Judson HS. The Director needed a bass for the orchestra, so Jacob accepted the position. He started the semester in the Beginner Orchestra. With his excellent musicianship, he learned the instrument and was moved to the Honors Orchestra. He did receive honors for this position. All this time, Jacob had continued taking music lessons and having recitals with Thomas Lopez. Jacob had continuisly been a student of Tom's since middle school at Kitty Hawk. Now it was time to think of college. Jacob had thought that "Music Thearpy" was an area of study he wanted to pursue. Looking at the information from Texas colleges, only two in the state offered music therapy. One was in Houston, and the other was the University of the Incarnate Word, in San Antonio, Texas. After applying, and going through Music School auditions with the Director at Incarnate Word, he was awarded a Music School scholarship and an academic scholarship. With the substantial scholarship money, he accepted the spot on the Incarnate Word music school roster. I would like to congratulate Thomas Lopez for instilling in his student Jacob, the musicianship needed to advance to the level he has. He is active in the Incarnate Word Chorale, so he is learning about another instrument- his voice. Jacob is active in two bands- Disposable and 16 Psyche. As well as writing music, singing (fronting Disposable), he is currently teaching himself piano. I want to add links below to several of Jacob's performances. If the links get lost, you may find performances on YouTube by searching the names of the groups, and looking for "YOSA presents Carmina Burrana," where you'll see Jacob's senior slide on the screen behind the orchestra, at the beginning credits. While in YOSA, Jacob was with the first group to perform in the new Tobin Center, appearing twice about a month before Paul McCartney played the venue. Jacob has performed with nationally known artists while in the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, and went on tour to Canada with the organization. Thanks again Thomas, for bringing out the best in your music students.

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

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!

I've worked with Ed on and off over the last few years. As a player, he is a total pro, able to deliver at a high level across many styles. What I really love about playing with Ed is that he is also a great person - always a positive attitude, punctual and prepared. Ed is my first call when I need a drummer, for both live and studio work. He has also given some drum lessons to my son, providing not just style and technique, but also some great philosophy and guidance about music in general.

Eric is a fabulous instructor. I stepped in as an adult with no experience and left with skills after the first session. He has a broad background and is able to shift methods and approaches to match learning speed. I just loved it. Thank you!!

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.
