Money and time well spent! Garrett is very knowledgeable, capable of discussing multiple DJ methods/styles, and is also great at communicating on different levels of music comprehension.
Mark
Garrett is everything I was looking for in my DJ instructor. He has a thorough background in teaching and working with students, but at the same time is a professional DJ who is out gigging all the time. His studio in North Hollywood is great, and he's made a huge difference in my DJing.
Anna
Garrett has been teaching DJing to my 11 year old son for several months now. Garrett has really helped him find something he's passionate about (something I think is priceless in itself). In addition, I sincerely appreciate his professionalism, and enthusiasm for his craft. I could not recommend him more!

I was inspired by drums at a very young age. My intro was playing along to the stereo hitting the floor with a unmatched pair of sticks. At age 12 I received a drumset and was able emulate some rock drumming style pretty fast. My learning hit a plateau soon after tho. My discipline for drum books

Great lesson. Michael is very friendly and knowledgeable.
Amy
Michael is a fantastic drum teacher. He is an extremely talented drummer and is skilled in all genres of music, from rock to jazz to latin. As a teacher he is very patient and adjusts to my needs / preferences. He is able to explain in detail both the mental and physical aspects of drumming, which I love, and always has tons of suggestions for improving my skills, from improv to rudiment exercises to jamming along to songs. I’ve learned so much taking classes from Mike!!

Charles Stewart is a very personable instructor. This first lesson was very well - paced. He explained everything in detail and he gave me enough practise in the lesson so that I know what to do, on my own, during the week.
Gloria D.
Great teacher. Very patient and observant. He tells you where your strengths and weaknesses are and develops a plan to assist you in overcoming your weaknesses. My left hand is weak but the more I practice on the assignments the more I become confident in my success.
Kenyatta K.
My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

Aaron
Drew was a great help getting me started on the kit. I was a beginner with minimal experience and spent one semester with him. The lessons started out in-person and had to move online halfway through the semester due to COVID-19. This didn’t stop the progression of learning. Everything continued and I consistently got better through great instruction.

Drew is great at relating material to real-life situations which really helps with the learning process. My main instrument is bass guitar and he constantly related information to how similar bass and drums are and how they should work together.

After one semester, I feel confident in my ability to practice correct technique and the ability to play with others. Thanks Drew!

"My 11 year old son lost his drum teacher, and we found TakeLessons online. The hardest part is choosing a teacher because many are all top notch 5-Star rated. I picked Tracy D. seemingly at random!

What a lucky draw it turned out to be. Tracy is a real pro, with a great personality. It took my son less than a few minutes before he was comfortable, having fun, and learning new things (he has 1 year experience).

I’ve been a part time musician for over 40 years, and I can tell you when I meet someone that is a true professional musician and the right person to teach my son. That is this exceptional woman."

"Amazing instructor

Erasmo has been my instructor and has taught me mallet percussion for the past year, and over that year I have improved unbelievably. He is an amazing instructor, very patient and helps explain so the student can fully understand. I have gotten very far within such little time thanks to him. I have become such a better musician from the time I started learning from Erasmo, and I have gotten many great opportunities to become an even better musician thanks to the instruction I have learned. I would highly recommend him for anyone of any age."
