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!

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!

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!

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.

    Kendra is an amazing percussion instructor. She is versatile, skilled, and very patient. Kendra is also very flexible when it comes to juggling a hectic middle schoolers schedule. My sons percussion skills (classical, jazz, and rock) have improved greatly while working with Kendra. If you are looking for a caring, quality percussion instructor, I would strongly recommend Kendra!

    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.

    Kyle provided a birthday drum lesson for my 12-year-old son. He was patient and kind, and the communication before and during the lesson was outstanding and very professional. Hoping to hire him on an ongoing basis of my son wishes to continue with lessons.

    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".

      About

      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.

      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

      About

      I would teach not only how to play pieces others have composed, but how to compose yourself! I believe that learning to improvise is the key to unlocking compositional freedom. By learning a bit of music theory, as well as pieces you enjoy hearing, I will help give you the fundamental understanding needed to be an artist yourself. I love to create. I love not only passing on skills to others, but passing on the large picture lessons that directly translate into your ability to do anything you seek to do.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
