I have 11 years of experience as a drummer and musician. I specialize in teaching beginner students of all ages who are looking to gain knowledge and skill on the drum set. We will focus on learning good stick technique, foundational rudiments, basic drum grooves, sight reading, and quality musicianship. Our lessons will be catered towards what you are interested in learning. However, if you don't quite know what you are looking for, I will give you the information you'll need to continually improve on the drums. The primary goal of our lessons will be to share knowledge and to have fun doing it! Reach out if we seem like a good match!

Taking lessons with Kismat was both fun and educational, as it should be. I was introduced to a variety of different music theory concepts at a pace which suited me. It was never too difficult nor too easy. Of course your progress will be dictated by how much you practice, but Kismat's lessons will give you a clear path to follow. Over all I had a lot of fun learning from him, he's a great teacher and fun guy to jam with.
Kathy
Our son Joe has taken lessons with Kismat for about the last year. They have been the most productive lessons of our sons guitar playing! Kismat found a way to teach our son in a way that appealed to him and applied to his way of learning. I could not be happier with the experience! Thank you so much!
Ingrid
I was Kismat's employer at Guitar Center in Roseville, Minnesota. He was fun to work with and great with students of all ages and skill levels. His energy and positivity always brightened the day and inspired the customers.

After many years of not playing drums, Evan has done a lot to help me remember how fun it is to have fun on the drums!

His teaching style is creative and interesting in terms of what material he brings and how he incorporates it into what you're working on, he communicates in a way that I find easy to understand, and scheduling and communication outside of the lesson has been a breeze. Our online lessons have been surprisingly easy (as someone new to this way of learning)--Evan's set up is easy to see and hear and feel like you're talking to a human being, and having the lesson recorded and sent over has been hugely helpful for reviewing the material.

Evan also happens to be in my opinion the most creative, interesting, and musical drummer in the city of Seattle, at least that I know of. Highly recommend!
David M.
A very accommodating, experienced, and easy going teacher. Would definitely recommend!
Gary
Evan is an experienced musician who translates his expertise really well to aspiring drummers. He's super calm and patient which makes lessons fun. He supports students at whatever level they're at vs. excessively pushing. Highly recommend!

"Perfect Drum Teacher for a 6 year-old!

Mike is simply the perfect drum teacher for our high energy 6 year-old son! He has taken the time to get to know Annan and understand how to best teach him. As a result, he is able to push our kid to challenge himself, while still making it so fun that he doesn't want the lesson to end. Mike is also very organized, which makes it easy for the parents to understand what your child is supposed to be practicing throughout the week. He also gives exercises for practice that the kids actually want to do. As a result, Annan practices on his own and is often trying to push himself to do even a little more so that he can impress Mike at this next lesson. If you have a young son who is interested in drums, I can't think of a better teacher than Mike!"

"When my son's school mandated that all students learn an instrument and I found out that he had been assigned DRUMS, I was at a loss. The lessons provided by the school were basic and I didn't feel that my son was getting the full benefit of all the drums had to offer. Luckily, we found Mike!

Mike set my son at ease instantly. He is very personable and has the gift of getting to know his students in a genuine manner. His friendly demeanor and willingness to use humor, without talking down to his students, sets him apart. Mike took the time to get to know Tom, including his musical interests, so that he could create high-interest lessons that motivated my son to practice and increased his love of music. Mike was able to explain clearly to my son what they were doing, how to do it properly, and why doing it correctly was worth the time invested. Not having had experience with drums, I had no idea how much technique is involved! Mike provided not only drum lessons, but life lessons as well.

As a parent, I have always appreciated Mike's timely communication. I have never had to wonder when my son's lessons would be, when payment was due, or what to do when I had a scheduling conflict. (By the way, Mike understands the chaos that sometimes goes along with being a working parent.)

To sum things up, Mike is a charismatic teacher who uses his expertise to instruct his students in how to become exemplary musicians and people. I recommend him without reservations."

"Not many world-class musicians are also great teachers. They either aren’t humble enough or never took the time to learn how to explain what they do. Anthony Fung is a true exception. As a lifelong fan of the drum set but someone who was always too intimidated to learn, I tried many teachers in-person & online and walked away feeling confused more often than not. Anthony was the teacher who changed that.

I first discovered Anthony’s drumming hearing him at the Newport Jazz Festival playing the drums with Grammy Winner and virtuoso pianist Danilo Pérez. Never have I been more blown away by hearing a musician live. He was in his early 20s at the time and had all the signs of someone with a special gift who would go very far in the music world. The drumming spoke for itself.

Then, later that day, he taught a drum clinic for hundreds of under-privileged high school students and adults that had the room buzzing. I saw the profound difference in the students’ playing immediately. And it became clear why people all over the world contract Anthony for his teaching.

We kept in touch over the years and I took lessons whenever I was in Los Angles at his studio. After the first lesson, I found I had already learned more facility at the drum set than from years of slogging through method books and teachers who didn’t know what they were doing.

Since the beginning of this year, I have switched over to weekly online lessons, which I found to be just as effective as in-person studies. We are now studying advanced concepts and exercises for developing technical facility and versatility as a drummer in the 21st century (and I played my first gig on the drums!). I feel truly fortunate to be able to take lessons with one of the world’s greatest drummers. No matter what genre you play, and whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced drummer, I know you’ll benefit immensely from Anthony’s experience, world-class artistry, and personable approach."

I have known Derek for many years, and can say what an excellent young man he is in character and helpfulness, As a mother of 10 children, I am concerned that their teachers be well qualified and have a positive influence on my kids. Derek is a wonderful teacher, encouaging, talented, and able to help even the most basic drummer. If he ever plays for you, his giftedness will shine! He is truely an fantastic instructor and my son enjoyed every lesson with him. I would HIGHLY recommend him as your choice to learn and improve in percussion."
