We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.

I learned drums a long time ago in high school, and it wasn't anything formal, then I didn't get to play again for 35 years. I started up again and found Chris for lessons, and over the least year plus, have once again learned why I liked playing drums before. I actually have a band now, and our first gig is this next weekend. Wow, only way that could happen is if four other people think I can play the drums, and I pretty much can do that because of the drum instruction I got from Chris. Chris has been very flexible as my work schedule can be nuts. The studio environment is very nice for drum instruction, whether it be the measures, drumming, learning, or watching. You can't go wrong taking drum lessons from Chris Korzin, and if you have ever seen Just Dirt, even more the reason, as he is their drummer!!

I have been studying Vocals with Sami for 2 years. He is an amazing instructor, he is patient, kind and a blast to learn with. Every lesson is designed for me based on my progression from the week prior. He is always available to speak even when I don't have lessons to offer additional help. Thank you Sami for helping me become a better singer.

Jason is an outstanding drum teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for a year now. He has taken me from a complete music beginner with no discernable rhythm to the point where I can read the music, HEAR the time of the music, play all kinds of neat rhythms and play my full drum kit along to songs. Jason is organized, passionate and focused on making sure you become the best drummer you can be.

Chris is a wonderful teacher! He is very motivating and encouraging. I appreciate how he points out what I need to work on and how I’ve been improving. He provides weekly “homework” so I can practice difference drum exercises. He is very professional yet makes drum lessons fun and exciting! I’d recommend Chris as a teacher to beginners or experienced drummers of all ages!

Amazing drummer and an excellent teacher. Drumming lessons are detailed and precise yet very enjoyable. Really enjoy the warm up before the lesson and the hands on practice during the lesson really help.

As a parent, I am thrilled with the experience my daughter has had learning piano over the last 3 years. She is happy and excited to attend her lessons because the instructor makes the lessons challenging, meaningful, interesting, and fun. I am amazing at how much she has learned and how much support she has had. We couldn't be happier with our choice for piano.

    Josh has filled in on drums for my band, Broken By Clouds, on numerous occasions. He's always punctual, prepared, proficient and probably quite a few other words that don't start with the letter "p".

My simple mission is to have students excel at drumming and develop a lifelong joy and passion for the instrument and music. Happy drumming to you! Warm regards, Glenn Thilman Testimonial: "My son started playing drums when he was 15. It was his first experience playing an instrument. I thought he was a typical teenage boy wanting to be in a rock band and figured the interest would die, but somehow, Glenn got him hooked and he fed that interest and developed my son's talent. Over the three years of lessons, his skill and confidence grew quickly." -- Lisa (Sept. 28, 2011)

    About

    I offer private music lessons for guitar, bass and drums. I teach music reading, scales, chords, freestyle jamming and ultimately to love to play music. I am great with people of all ages and teach according to the student's personality and specifically desired path in playing. I have been playing since I was in the fourth grade and urge parents to start your kids on the musical path, while they are young. They learn quicker and will be able to grow into musical adults! They will thank you in their album liner notes. Talk to you soon, Bradley Tatum
