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.
I'm a drum instructor. I have been a professional drummer for over 25 years. I've had private instruction for 3 years and studied music in college.
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 !!
I have had lots of guitar lessons from lots of good teachers and Oliver was the best of them. He adapts to whatever level you are at, teaches you what you need to know, and does with exceptional musicality along with phenomenal technique instruction. Whatever you want to learn, in whatever genre, at whatever level of performance (I am a semi professional musician), Oliver will make you a better guitar player and a better musician. You will never regret having taken lessons with Oliver.
