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!

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 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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".
