We accept debit/credit cards.

Bryan's approach is unique and 100% proven to work fast!

- We don't just teach how to play drum beats and rudiments, etc. We start at the most basic fundamental level to ensure that, down to the finest details, you understand how to hold the stick, hit the drums, and work your way around the kit at blazing speeds, all with proper technique. You'll be able to play with unlimited dynamic control and speed and always in the pocket.
- In a 4-week time, you will not only be playing beats and fills you didn't think possible, but you will be sounding great doing them as well.
- That is key to becoming a successful drummer and musician who can get hired and get a great return on your investment. It's not enough to be able to play drumbeats alone, but to sound good when you play.
- In addition to being a solid drummer and sounding good no matter what you play, we also teach how to play musically, so you can play the right drum part all the time!
- Drum tech'ing (proper set up, how to tune your drum, and to achieve a comfortable drum setup every time no matter what kit you're using, etc.)
- And more

Whether you are aiming to be a studio session drummer, live drummer, church drummer, or just someone who would like to add a new skill, you will learn how to fit the bill.

Small children are welcome.

We also offer 15- to 30-minute lessons for smaller children. We can arrange an assessment to determine if your young child is ready for drum lessons and for how long of sessions. Typically, for children under 4, we recommend 2 30-minute lessons per week at first, then can change as they progress and mature and are able to handle more, etc.

For children under 2, we recommend 2 15-minute lessons per week until we feel they are ready to move up to 30-minute time slots. Every child has different needs, and we try to cater to them on a case-by-case basis.

    Great to work with - went beyond in my situation for re-working a song for my daughter!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014

    Bryan Lash is a complete professional with a fantastic grasp on live recording and a great facility to record in. He was quick to reach out when I first requested a quote and has maintained good communication throughout the recording experience, which I am extending and plan on doing some portion of the work with them.

  • 5/5 stars April 10, 2014

    My daughter had an amazing experience working with Bryan! It was her first recording session. Bryan made her feel comfortable right away. It was evident he excels in his field and truly wants to help bring out the very best in his clients. He was very personable. Lots of laughs and very professional. Looking forward to working with him in the future!

    Bryan has been nothing short of amazing, ever since we first contacted him on thumbtack. He takes personal notice of my son's progress, and makes sure he understands his homework before he leaves. He's got a great vibe, and obviously loves to work with kids, which is hard to find! We feel so lucky to have found Bryan Lash!

    Bryan's very personable, very professional and patient. I came for a short, one time recording session, and he dedicated attention to all the details and cared about the quality of the results. I recommend recording with him, and wish I could hear him play to give a review on him as a drummer too :)

  • 5/5 stars October 19, 2013

    He was very accommodating and stayed longer than the original booking! I will definitely be going back! I highly recommend going to him for your recording needs.

    Haven't worked with Bryan yet, but from the time ive experienved talking to he seems like he is a great teacher and going to be a valuable partner in my groups dreams and goals. He is easy to talk to, easy to get along with and seems like he will help you with whatever you need to better yourself and your music.

  • 5/5 stars January 22, 2013

    Bryan was very impressive and was able to teach at a very detailed level that allowed me to learn A LOT even in an hour.... no question that he definitely knows what he is doing! Highly Recommended!!

  • 5/5 stars December 15, 2012

    Have worked with Bryan since 1995 musically, collaborating in bands and in the studio full time. He is not only an amazing musician, teacher, studio producer/engineer, but and amazing guy. Easy to work with, always knows how to get you the results. Even so, finding the results you thought never existed and improving the outcome tremendously. I would definately recommend Bryan if your looking to better your musicianship and learn something new everytime you meet. I always do! Rock on B!

  • 4/5 stars November 28, 2012

    Bryan was a great fit as a drum teacher with our son. He is talented, friendly, and trustworthy/ reliable. We appreciated that Bryan drove to our house weekly. We would of kept it going longer but after a long while our son became lazy about practicing and lost interest in drumming (of no reflection on his teacher!) But our son did really like Bryan and did make good progress/ picked up the talent of drumming really quickly.

  • 5/5 stars November 28, 2012

    I first met Bryan as a musician, he recorded our EP. I learned a lot and became a better drummer because of Bryan's input and techniques. Later, I interned with Bryan while I was in school getting a degree in Digital Audio Production. I learned even more about audio engineering musicianship. I guarantee Bryan Lash is the best Audio Engineer and Drummer you will ever work with.
