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.
Chris Korzin is an excellent teacher and drummer. As I was starting from no drumming background he made me comfortable and opened me up to learn all the many aspects of drumming. His teaching methods are great for all experience levels! As I reach my 5th year of drumming he still challenges and inspires me. Chis has been instrumental in my music career allowing me to take the ideas in my head and convey them through my drumming! No doubt, the choice for drum lessons in the Tacoma area!
Jacob is fantastic with beginners, especially kids. Instead of focusing on scales and theory, he starts them out playing actual songs they want to play, and builds lessons from there. Hes very chill and encouraging and makes the lessons and practice fun and engaging. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking at lessons for their kids or themselves! Hes a fantastic teacher!
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 received beginner guitar lessons from Justin. It was great! He taught me the basics and some great tricks to help me remember what I was learning each week. I felt like I improved really quickly with his instructions. I was impressed with how patient he was while he listened to me fumble through the chords!
Sami is a wonderful guitar player and teach, as well as songwriter and vocalist. He takes a great interest in his students and helps to motivate them to their full potential. He's a fantastic musician and performer and can bring that experience to his students to help them grow in their performance abilities. He's a teacher who can work with beginners to get them up and playing songs they enjoy quickly, or work with accomplished players to improve their skills. A very caring teacher / mentor for his students.
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!
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
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.
Our 12 year old son has been taking drumming lessons from Chris Pollina for over a year. As parents we were truly amazed when we heard real rhythm coming out of the basement pretty quickly after the lessons started. Chris has built a great rapport with our son who enjoys the lessons and is continually challenged. Chris is a talented drummer and instructor. He comes to the lessons on time and fully prepared. He has a solid method to his teaching that develops the very important basics and builds upon them to keep the students excited and progressing. We can wholeheartedly give our recommendation Chris.
Max is a really good teacher!
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.
Owen was quick to respond to my request! looking forward to meeting and working with him
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".
Keith is friendly, knowledgeable and demonstrates patience while teaching guitar to a 7 year old beginner. Our son is having fun learning to play and we like the convenience of having the lessons in our home.
Instructor has done Weddings, musicals, and solo mallet performance. Teaching all styles of drumming, with reading for snare drum, as well as studies for the complete drum set.
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.

I have taken two years of drumming at a college level. I know how to play jazz, rock and several other styles. Drums are my biggest hobby, and I want to pass my knowledge and love for drums to others at a low cost.
