We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!

Private Percussion Teacher

Interested in creating a natural feel and sound on whatever instrument you play? Improving your technique? 4 mallet marimba? Drumset?

For the better part of my adult life I have been performing and teaching classical contemporary music. Although I am well versed in the traditional repertoire of classical percussion (orchestral and contemporary chamber music/solo), my heart is first and foremost a performer. If you are looking to become creative musician who enjoys a challenge and likes to find creative solutions to skill-building, let me know! I'm sure I can help and would love to work with you!

Stephen is a really good teacher. He is experienced, nice, and patient. Especially I am a Chinese, even my language is bad, he can also find the different way to let me know how to study drum. Every class I feel happy.

Greg
One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

"Mr. Piper came to Lake Charles, LA and DeRidder, LA for a FREE drum camp for kids. We went to both locations because that's unheard of in our city. He taught the kids:
*Different techniques
*How to play the drums with different genres of music
*Rudiments!!"

"Online Conga Drum Instruction

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."

She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!"

"Mariano was an amazing percussion and drum set teacher. His lessons were engaging and productive, and he was always able to communicate an idea or musical concept in a way that I was able to understand and connect with. After about 2 years of lessons I was accepted into the Orange County School of the Arts for percussion and I owe my success to the lessons I took with Mariano. I continued lessening throughout high school and my skill level contined to grow. What I loved about Mariano's teaching was his unique ability to take very simple exercises and make them more difficult and therefore much more beneficial. Along with stressing the importance of basic technique, he would constantly inteoduce me to new things - Afro beats, traditional grip, Latin beats, new ways to sight read, and 4 mallet marimba technique. I would highly suggest taking lessons with Mariano if you are looking for a fun, encouraging teacher who has lots of experience with a variety of percussion performance!"
