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!
Ed has been giving my son Jack drum lessons for awhile now and Jack is really into it and really likes Ed's style of teaching. Being a drummer myself I will say that Ed has a way with kids to get them to learn and enjoy it all at the same time. Thanks Ed.
I highly recommend Billy Barner for drum lessons!!! Billy and I go way back, but most recently hooked up performing together with THE GALAxIES - www.thegalaxies1964.com Billy is a GREAT drummer, teacher and all around wonderful person to be around and work with!!!

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.
Sami has musical knowledge well beyond his years in singing, guitar, drums, and much more. Working with him for 2+ years has made him one of my closets friends.
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've been taking drum lessons with Jeremy for about four years. In that time I've gone from never touching a drum kit to being a respectable drummer of intermediate skill level, and Jeremy has made it super fun! Two major things I would call out as the most positive about studying with him are his incredible patience and his open mind to lots of musical genres. On more occasions than I can remember, Jeremy has helped me learn a rhythm or technique by showing me two or three different ways to approach it until I was able to get it right. And I've been really impressed with how much he knows about not just rock music, but Latin rhythms, hip-hop beats, jazz techniques, disco, the list goes on... Four years in, I'm still learning a lot and having a blast.
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.
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.
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.
Max was great to work with and I would love to hire their band again in the future!
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".
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.
I offer from beginning to intermediate drum lessons that teach the fundamentals of drumming such as stick control and rhythm training. Students will learn to become fluent in the basics of reading music while also learning how to apply this knowledge to playing songs and rhythms of various style on the drum set. I also help students develop and create their own style of drumming while also helping them play with other instruments. I have been teaching all levels of drum lessons for 5 years, and I have experience playing drums in a variety of jazz and pop/rock bands for the past 12 years.

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
