Rufus is a dedicated drum instructor who is keenly interested in seeing his students improve. We have seen our son rapidly progress with the drums over a short period of time and look forward to seeing Rufus develop his skills further.

Alot of people question whether or not they or there kid have the ability to even learn an instrument. I can have anyone leave there first lesson with the ability to play a beat and a drum fill after there 1st lesson!! Adaptive teaching styles for 1 on 1 lessons makes learning easier and we always have fun with our instruments!!

Hi. My name is Asael Escribano. I am 31 years old and I have been teaching at home on Saturdays for the past 3 years. I like to help people who are either beginning their journey as drummers or who are wanting to try to learn drums. I use an approach that is not completely theoretical but rather practical and focused on teaching rhytms and simple patterns to make it less “boring” and more enjoyable.

From the beginning I have felt that Alex is very invested in my success and like every great teacher, he challenges me. Alex's teaching style is a combination of teaching, observing and correcting technique, addressing mindset (really important), and wanting the student to feel the joy of discovering how to play real songs with every lesson. He is patient and encouraging, with just the right word at the right time. Combined with his vast knowledge of music, lessons and homework are packed with useful info that is broken down in a way that’s easy to understand. He also demonstrates how everything is applied through multiple musical styles,, so you can get a sense of the potential of your own playing in the future while broadening your musical horizons, which is a bonus.. You will get out of it only what you put into it, so regular practice is key otherwise it's easy to get behind. But Alex will adjust if something is not working, which is very motivating. Great teacher. Recommend 100%.

Very knowledgeable and patient, provided a lot of useful learning materials and sample music for a beginner, would recommend!
Andrew
Andrew thoroughly enjoyed his first lesson tonight!
Robin
My 10 year old son has been taking lessons with Steve for almost 2 years. Prior to Steve, Nathan was enrolled in group lessons at the park district. After a unpleasant experience with the group lessons , we decided to try private lessons. Steve has done an amazing job working with Nathan. Like most kids, some days it is hard to keep his attention, but Steve does an amazing job. He has kept Nathan focused while still allowing him to have fun playing the guitar. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Steve as a musical instructor.

"Awesome teacher

My son really enjoys playing the drums under the instruction of Keith. Keith makes it fun and my child learns a lot with the suggested materials given to him.

Keith also helps the parents by helping them understand what is needed for the student to learn.

Keith keeps on top of communication and responds immediately with suggestions and looks out for deals to help support his students.

A wonderful, wonderful man!!"

"im 23, been playing drums for 14 years,I had different teachers all growing up, but I realized that I had no real good knowledge of theory and '' why things works''.
iI've been taking classes with Rafael Leal for six months. During these six months there has been a lot of progress with the knowledge of music theory and my drums skills. There are a lot of music teachers out there, but Rafael's combination of knowledge and skills can not only craft you into a great drummer, but a great musician as well!I highly recommend you contact Rafael leal and pursue taking your music education to a new level."

"We had a wonderful experience with Dan as my son's drum instructor. My son started at a fairly young age (6) and was interested in playing more what he heard on the radio, anywhere from Taylor Swift to Metallica. Dan was extremely patient in developing his lessons with my son by incorporating these types of songs in his lesson and keeping my son's interest up throughout the 30 minute lesson/"jam session." I'd highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in learning drum skills like those of Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, and other rock and roll legends."
