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.

Started guitar lessons a couple of months ago and couldn't be happier. I was self taught and played by ear. Didn't feel I had time for lessons. But, I was missing a lot of the fundamentals. The lessons have started to fill in the gaps and I'm learning a lot faster than before. I wish I started these lessons a couple of years ago. And way too easy taking these lessons at my place. Highly recommended!

I really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with him.

I had Ed Mays as a drum teacher through most of high school and he was a very good teacher. He was caring about me as his pupil and did the best he could to make me into a better drummer all while making it fun.He is very calm and extremely trustworthy. He also taught me things other then just physical drumming. He taught me some amounts of drumming history and tons about music in general. If you want drum lessons he is definitely recommended.

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.

I took percussion lessons from Sam. I appreciated his desire to teach what I wanted to learn - and especially his ability to keep up as that changed from lesson to lesson! Experimenting with a raft of different percussion instruments and styles was key to my deciding which ones I wanted to focus on and which ones I didn't enjoy at all. I also appreciated his ability to debug what was going wrong with my technique and to brainstorm drills that not only improved my playing but that I also enjoyed. Without a doubt Sam gets my highest recommendation if you're looking to learn percussion!

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.

    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".

I also help students develop and create their own style of drumming while also helping them play with other instruments.

These are often posted on my FB page. Students are encouraged to and can engage anytime with me through my FB page with questions, and posts of a music or drumming nature. 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
