I have work with Bryan before he gave me drum lessons very skilled and detailed , easy to understand I would definitely recommend any student that would like to better their skills to Bryan lash
Chris is an outstanding drum instructor! My 11 year old son is losing his eyesight due to a degenerative retinal disease, but has been interested in trying his hand at learning to play the drums. As a mother, I was just wanting my son to find something that was "his thing" and that would give him the confidence in himself that he so desperately needed. Chris did not hesitate to take my son on - vision impairment and all! The kindness, patience and compassion he has shown my son has been amazing - not to mention he's a phenomenal drummer! My kiddo had never touched a drum in his life and had no previous experience with a musical instrument. Chris has made the lessons accessible to my child and has gone out of his way to tailor the lessons to my son's needs. My son has a blast! If he's had a bad day or is feeling down, by the time he's done with his lesson with Chris, he comes out energized, smiling and is in the best mood! Chris makes the lessons fun and is so encouraging and positive and makes my kid feel like the best rock star on Earth. In the months we've been going to our drum lessons, I've watched my son's confidence grow exponentially. He feels like he's finally got the potential to be good at something - and that's all because of Chris. You can't put a price tag on that. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chris Korzin! If you want an instructor who is not only a gifted musician, but genuinely ENJOYS teaching to kids and people of all ages, all levels of experience - and welcomes kids with special needs/circumstances, Chris is the best you will find - hands down!
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!
Ed has been giving my son Jack drum lessons for awhile now and Jack is really into it and really likes Ed's style of teaching. Being a drummer myself I will say that Ed has a way with kids to get them to learn and enjoy it all at the same time. Thanks Ed.
Dude has the patience of a saint. Justin is technically a talented musician. He also has a teaching skill-set that many artists do not. I have been taking guitar lessons from Justin for over a year, and literally have no complaint. He's a great guy, he is reasonable and flexible in scheduling, and has lots of experience and proper equipment to teach guitar, bass and drums.
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 dedicated, creative drum teacher who knows his stuff! My 10 year old son loves learning with him, and has made steady progress since starting lessons about 6 months ago. Chris emphasizes developing good habits from the start, which has given my son an excellent foundation on which to build. One thing I really appreciate about Chris is that he's both firm, and totally supportive and encouraging. He also has a great sense of humor! I wholeheartedly recommend hiring Chris for drum lessons.
We hired James to teach 2 of our children piano lessons and and we have been thrilled with him thus far. He is professional and motivational and our children (both in middle school) have greatly enjoyed working with him. I would highly recommend James!
Max is a really good teacher!
Storm is passionate about his work and tailors his lessons to the individual needs of our children. We appreciate his enthusiasm and empathy in working with young children on two different instruments each, who each have different styles of learning.
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".
Awesome! Great teacher and great vibes there. See drastic improvement in playing and discipline already! Highly recommended!!
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
Exactly what I needed. Helped me set up a new drum kit and give a family lesson, most importantly for the kids. Really great to work with and very happy I hired Denali.

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)
I offer from beginning to intermediate drum lessons that teach the fundamentals of drumming such as stick control and rhythm training. Students will learn to become fluent in the basics of reading music while also learning how to apply this knowledge to playing songs and rhythms of various style on the drum set. I also help students develop and create their own style of drumming while also helping them play with other instruments. I have been teaching all levels of drum lessons for 5 years, and I have experience playing drums in a variety of jazz and pop/rock bands for the past 12 years.
We provide pre-k music lessons. Plus, piano, guitar, drums, bass, ukulele, and violin lessons. Group classes are also available.
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
I help prepare students for symphony, school orchestra auditions and other pieces they wish to work on. I also provide writing and SAT tutoring.
