Bo Wade was my first percussion teacher over 10 years ago. A friend I played guitar with invited me to a Samba dance class set to live percussion. Bo was in charge of the percussion section, orchestrating both the drummers and dancers from behind his drum set. Bo is an elite musician and instructor with a broad understanding of percussion styles from around the globe. Whatever your experience level, focus, or preference of music, Bo will add value to your practice techniques and performance approach. I highly recommend taking lessons and developing a relationship with Bo.
Alexis Trout
Bo was great with teaching our son rudiments, grooves, Latin Jazz beats and much more. He also taught our son how to play live in a large theater setting for musicals. He was always organized and on time, which we appreciated. Jackson learned a lot from Bo and is now in his 3rd year at Juilliard Pre-College for percussion in NYC. Thanks so much, Bo! We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Private Drum Teacher

Drums is my primary instrument, the one I chose to follow as a career in music. Drums make us dance, make us smile, and they are simply extremely fun to play. The most important thing I focus on is in playing music with the drums. There is nothing more rewarding and fun than playing with and for other people. Whether you are interested in learning how to play your favorite pop or rock song or a jazz standard, I can teach you what makes drumming unique in each style, and what you will need to know to express yourself in the instrument.

About Francisco

I was born in Argentina. I began playing bass when I was ten years old, while my younger brother began playing drums. I started taking bass classes, and also formed several bands as a bass player, although the drums had always been sounding in the back of my head. After listening to Tool’s Danny Ca

Francisco gave lessons to my 5-year-old daughter. He was patient and attentive, and taught at a level that she could understand while still allowing her to be challenged, but also to have fun! I absolutely recommend him as a teacher for students at any age.

Francisco is a patient and thorough drum teacher. I took lessons with him for approximately a year and learned so much that I still apply today. I would still be taking lessons with him but moved away from Southern California. He tailors his lessons to your personal goals and gives you actionable steps for the week ahead but also exposes you to larger concepts to show you what's possible. I regularly left lessons with him with my mind blown feeling very excited for the new possibilities in drumming that were being opened to me. After taking lessons with Francisco I feel like I have a toolbox of skills and knowledge that I will use my whole drumming life. He is extremely passionate about his craft and takes your personal goals seriously. I'd recommend him to any drummer of any style.

Jesey is FANTASTIC! I'm an adult beginner with no prior music experience. I've had a couple online lessons so far and I couldn't be more pleased. I've learned something new in every lesson and he's been helping me learn some of my favorite songs. He's great!

I was surprised at how easy it was to connect with Aaron. His diving right in was fun as we got into playing music from the first moment.

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

"I know a bit about drums myself, but wanted to find a professional instructor to teach my son. I've met a lot of teachers in San Diego who advertise that they teach a lot of different instruments and found that most of them know very little about drums and percussion (usually just basic rhythms that they learned from other instruments, and a few rudiments). Garrett on the other hand is exactly what my wife and I were looking for for our son. He specializes in drum set and percussion, is professional and very mature for his age, and an excellent teacher (I've learned a lot from the lessons as well). He gets along great with my son as well, and inspires him to practice hard throughout the week. We'll be sticking with Garrett for a very long time."

I thought I had no rhythm. I never played drums. After a couple hours with Casey I can play rock beats and even at least play to some songs on my Ipod. Great teacher!!!"

"Best drum teacher in Orange County

I've been talking lessons with Mike for about 5 years. He is both a great teacher and person. He combines a high level of skill and teaching ability with unmatched enthusiasm. His lessons are a combination of practice on the pad and on the kit, culminating in learning to play songs. Learning a new instrument is not easy, but this approach works and is very rewarding( as well as fun). Mike is also very friendly, fun, and energetic. To summarize, you WILL NOT regret choosing Mike. He is great teacher, and is someone who you or your child can become friends with. I will never regret having Mike as my drum teacher."
