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 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.

My two sons have recently started drum and guitar lessons with Justin. I originally saw some of his students at my son's elementary school talent show and was blown away! My sons learn differently and I have been so impressed at how Justin is able to adjust his teaching methods to cater to their unique learning styles. As a mom it warms my heart to see that Justin is enjoying teaching my sons as much as they are enjoying learning. There are lots of smiles all around!

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!

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.

Heidi has provided music lessons (clarinet, sax, voice, recorder and flute) to my children for the past six years. Heidi is a skilled and versatile musician, and has shared her love of music and technical abilities with my children. She is professional, punctual, and an outstanding music teacher. She has also become a friend to our family! She encourages my children and motivates them in music and in life! She goes above and beyond, challenging them with new pieces and goals. Every year she and my daughter organize a family recital which has become a holiday tradition. I highly recommend Heidi!

I took drum lessons from Phil for many years. I found he is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and highly skilled in the trade, not to mention easy to be around and he always went the extra mile (even when I didn't practice). Being his student was highly beneficial and I feel I got a premium musical education.

    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)
