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 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.

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 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!

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!

    Working/studying with Dr. McLean was one of the best decisions I have ever made for my musical career. She was able to take me from knowing very little about percussion to becoming percussion principal in the Tacoma Youth Symphony; all in just under two years. She methodically picked repertoire, introduced techniques and taught me as I best needed. I would definitely recommend Dr. McLean to any hardworking student wanting to learn how to play the drums/percussion. She is a delight to work with and study under. She also does an incredible job integrating music theory into her lessons! Austin Mangle percussion student of Kendra's 2016-2018

    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)

        I am looking to do something a little less traditional. I am currently looking to just learn an album start to finish. Since I have no experience I understand that the first few sessions will just be learning the basics. But after that I would like to jump right into learning the essential beats for this album. If you are open to doing this, please let me know! Thank you!
