Great Teacher!

Andrew Brown is a great teacher! I didn't have any music experience when I signed up for my first class, but he was extremely patient and despite a lack of natural rhythm I learned a lot in every session. Most lessons would incorporate exercises, learning a new beat or technique, learning a song by reading music and learning a song by listening to it. I was never bored during one of his classes as the material was always challenging enough to keep my focus, but not too hard to make me feel frustrated.

I would recommend Andrew Brown to anyone who wants to learn the drums! He's a great teacher and a really nice person!

Highly recommended!

Andrew is an outstanding drum teacher. I took lessons from him for about two years when he was based in Los Angeles. He is well-versed in a variety of teaching styles and I was always amazed by his skill whenever he improvised on the drum set. His ability to break complicated sequences into more digestible pieces was immensely helpful and was invaluable when tackling more challenging beats. He is also an exceptionally patient and encouraging teacher.

He is very receptive to teaching students what they are interested in learning. One of the parts of my lessons I looked forward to was applying what I had learned that class by playing along to some of my favorite songs.

Andrew was very flexible and willing to accomodate my ever-changing schedule. Really personable and funny, too!

I was bummed to hear he was moving to the east coast. If he were still in LA, I would absolutely still be taking lessons from him!

I will recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a drum instructor.

Mother of Teddy J

Tim is a great teacher. He introduced Teddy to the different types of drums and cymbals. He allowed Teddy to play the different drums so that he could hear that each drum has a different sound. He also showed him how could change the pitch of the drum. Teddy really enjoys his lessons.

Very talented musician!!
Nathan D. North Wales, PA

Do you have two left arms and two left feet (or two rights of each if you're left-handed), and have no idea how to coordinate behind your drumset?

Do you want to be able to accurately listen to a song and "play it" on your steering wheel as you drive?

Do you constantly have trouble maintaining speed, slowing down or speeding up for no reason?

How about wanting to go all-out and learning those crazy double-bass parts and snare rolls popular in today's extreme metal?

I require a practice pad for lessons to learn rudiments and coordination techniques, even if it's just a mouse pad taped to a heavy book to start with. If you continue taking lessons, I can recommend the best practice pad for you.

I typically will teach and write drums using a combination of tablature and standard sheet music. Tablature a simple set of lines and X marks that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

You'll learn how to keep time with ...

Guitar · In home
I have been playing guitar for 18 years on and off again (key words: on and off again). I must say that I have been in a “stalemate” in terms of advancing my capabilities for the longest time. I have been playing the same main riff Def Leppard songs over and over for years… In addition, I had no grasp of musical theory whatsoever, with the exception of the very basic chord formations.

I recently saw Nathan perform at a local open mic night. I was so taken back by his seamless ability to flow up and down the fret board. He is one guitar virtuoso, to say the least. He made an announcement to the crowd that he gave guitar lessons. I was intrigued and inquired more after he performed.

Currently, I have taken half a dozen guitar lessons under the guidance of Nathan. He has taken my guitar work to a whole other level – somewhere I couldn't even imagine doing. I told him my goal is to “solo” more and he taught me just that.

Nathan started teaching me in the key of C and tied in the boring theory in an easy way to grasp. By the end of my first lesson, I grasped E Phrygian, G Mixolydian, D Dorian, etc. and how they all interweave together.
Nathan is a class A guitar teacher. Without reservation, I recommend Nathan as your guitar teacher. He is respectful and will teach you at “your” pace, which is something my previous teacher 18 years ago never did. Thumbs up, Nathan; looking forward to next week’s lesson. I have been practicing a lot and I owe that to you!!!!!!!

My daughter had been taking lessons at a local guitar school for over a year before we tried Takelessons.com and found Nathan. It was the best thing that could have happened for us. My daughter has a renewed passion for her guitar. Nathan has worked at her pace and gotten her excited about learning,again. He is super friendly and can keep up with my nine year olds' never ending questions. He is very patient with her and tries to work with her interests. I'm sure we will be using him for lessons for a long time to come.
