I came across Duncan on Thumbtack, while looking for someone to teach me to play the drums. I had recently been given a drum set from the guy I'm seeing, who used to be a professional drummer, so I had an incentive to learn. And to learn quickly. I'm so glad I found Duncan! Even though I'm not in any way musically gifted and have no sense of rhythm, Duncan had me playing four drum rhythms, seven fills, several variations of jazz beats, a disco beat, and basic bossanova within ten weeks, one 30 minute lesson per week. Obviously I'm not going to sound like a pro yet, but my friends and boyfriend were impressed. If you knew my utter lack of talent and rhythm, you'd know that's pretty amazing. As a kid I was forced to take piano lessons, and because I didn't enjoy them, I was hesitant about the drum lessons. However, the speed with which I've learned useful rhythms with Duncan's "hands on" method has made the drums way more fun than the piano. I practice daily and I love it, because Duncan doesn't waste my time with mindless beginner exercises, I'm actually playing the drums. Duncan's endorsed (or whatever the word is) by Vic Firth, the company that makes the drum sticks you see everywhere, so Duncan's given me free sticks, a set of brushes, and a bunch of sheet music. Oh, and while I had a head start from playing the piano, I was never really able to read piano music, even after five years. Yet somehow Duncan showed me how to read music for the drums in a single lesson, it turned out to be super easy, and now I can read anything you put in front of me. I'm amazed by the progress I've made thus far. Now after four months, I can play entire songs from start to finish, I can operate the hi-hat and bass drum at the same time with the pedals while using my hands on the toms and snare, and I have learned a wide variety of techniques Highly recommended!

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

Both my son and daughter have been taking drum lessons with Nick for a year now and they love it! Nick is a wonderful, patient teacher and my children have blossomed as drummers. I would recommend anyone to take lessons from Nick...he is just great!

Jeff has given our son drum lessons for 7 years. Jeff is encouraging, understanding and very fun. He is excited and enthusiastic about our son's progress and passionate about music. He strives to teach what is necessary to learn and the type of music the student is interested in. Our "likes to sleep in" son has no problem getting up on a Saturday morning to go to his lesson!

I took lessons with Kyle for about a year. My goal was develop a solid foundation so that I could learn on my own without picking up any bad habits. Matt definitely helped me reach that goal and then some. I feel pretty confident that I can learn new, challenging songs on my own now. If guitar lessons weren't so expensive, I would definitely have kept going. Kyle is an awesome teacher!

He's easily the best drummer I've ever seen in person. He's incredibly astute, he listens, and he used both music and education as a way to grow the personal as a whole. Jason is a gift to drumming, and is a great resource for musicians of all ages.

I’ve been taking lessons from Tom for at least a few years now. I had been self-teaching and clearly not advancing in a very productive manner along with garnering some bad habits. I’m very happy I found Tom and I’m making great advances though there’s always a long way to go. He is an amazing drummer (go see Euge Organ Trio at Solae’s) and a great teacher. He seems to thoroughly enjoy playing & teaching. He’s very well versed in just about all music/rhythms on the planet. (That may be an exaggeration, but seems that way to me) He’s particularly adept/experienced in the jazz/funk/street music of New Orleans as well as with the rhythms historically feeding into the New Orleans mix, including Latin, African & native rhythms. And, this has evolved into one of my main interests now as well. Check his web site, he’s had incredible experience & education. I find it completely worthwhile to learn from a clear professional (especially compared to some prior lessons I’d tried). I’d be happy to expound/discuss further if you'd like, contact me at jkulik@hotmail.com.

Ryan gives drum lessons to my 10 year old son, Josh. Josh has a blast! Ryan is technically a great drummer and instructor, but still connects with Josh like no other instructor has. I highly recommend Ryan.

Just started learning Drums this year - a bit late to the game as I'm in my 50s. Toby has been excellent, knowledgeable and always introducing new concepts and challenges every lesson. I very much enjoy each lesson. Thanks Toby :-)

Hey everyone! My name is Benjamin Copsey. I am 21 years old, very friendly and open to anyone with a passion for music. I have been a guitar instructor for 5 years now and would like to expand my clientele. In my classes, it's up to the student what they want to learn! For example, if you or your child wanted to learn guitar so you could play your favorite song and determined to learn it in a week, I would be the man to go to.

With over 22 years of music experience and training, I encourage my students to find their voice in percussion. I integrate health, mathematics, and movement into a wholistic curriculum that fits each student. Though I focus on percussion, I play and write music with multiple instruments including the piano and guitar. I use these added skills to help my students learn to play with other musicians and enhance their musicality as a percussionist.

I care about my clients success in drumming and realize Oregon City may be a bit far from downtown Portland. If you need a ride from the bus stop downtown OC, I may be able to arrange that. I have been through symphonic band, Jazz band, Pep Band, Marching Band and in the last 12 years, full band performance playing on stage with local church worship teams playing all sort of styles of music.
