I took lessons from Ryan for about six months and had a wonderful experience with him. Ryan is a great guy and a very good drummer, but most of all he is a fantastic teacher. He was funny and cheerful but knew when to get down to business. He was a great resource for exercises and was able to teach me pretty much whatever I wanted within the range of jazz, Latin and fusion drumming (this is what I studied with him so I can't speak of his skill at teaching rock drumming). I only stopped going because I couldn't fit it into my schedule anymore but I still take lessons occasionally and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for drum lessons in Bellingham.
My daughter took lessons from Scott about a year ago. She was in the 7th grade and the only female percussionist in the marching and concert band at her middle school. Scott helped her to come out of her shell. At home, I would only hear her practice on her pad or her snare drum, (when it wasn't at school), so I never really knew how well she played. During one of her lessons, Scott had to come downstairs and talk to me about something. In the middle of the conversation, we both stopped talking and just listened. I said, "Is that her playing??", he gave a resounding yes! Assuming no one could hear her, she just let loose and went for it. She sounded awesome!! Much more advanced that either of us knew. Then Scott knew just how to challenge her. Due to an unfortunate "cut in budget" on the home-front, we had to quit taking lessons. The following school year, her band teacher invited her to be the drummer for the Jazz band! What an honor. We knew it was due to the fact that Scott challenged her beyond what she thought she was capable of, and every lessons was filled with patience, a little humor, and a laid back atmosphere where there was no stress or anxiety. She always anticipated her lesson day. We gave our recommendation of Scott Watts to my daughter's band teacher after she saw such great results in her ability and confidence. Now, she could confidently refer her percussionist, (present and future), to a teacher with such high praise and reputation. We have kept in touch with Scott and look forward to being able to resume lessons again, hopefully soon! As recently as today, the pastor at our church and the worship team leader asked if my daughter would be interested in playing the drums for the worship team! What a huge honor. Thank you Scott!! You are the BEST !!
It's all about being real. Drum lessons, for me, isn't just a job, it's a fun hobby that I enjoy. When others just want to "get the lesson over with," I look forward to helping the student progress each week. The other reason is the price. I know for a fact that professionals have excellent instruction for a price. But families who can't afford such professionals need a viable alternative. That's where I come in. When a kid finally "gets it," the look on they're face is priceless. It's like they'd never want to do anything but play the drums for the rest of their lives. I also just enjoy teaching in general, since I remember what it was like for me to take lessons. I try to teach what I wished my teacher taught me.

what I like most about my job is I get to play the insturment I love and wake up every day feeling like I want to go to work. Unlike some of the jobs I've had throught he years.
