Great Teacher

Yuichi has been a really great teacher for our 7 years old son. He is very patient and really great with kids. He's made a real effort to get our son interested in drumming and music more generally, introducing to different sounds, rhythms and types of music. My son really enjoys his lesson and is making good progress!

Our son is 7 years old and started drum lessons with Yuichi several months ago. My son absolutely loves his classes with Yuichi and would go more than once a week if he could. We are very happy with Yuichi. He makes the lesson fun and interesting for our son, and at the same time teaching him what he needs to know so he continues to make progress. He is a great match for our son.

Private Drum Teacher

I am a well-rounded drum teacher, meaning I have learned and studied genres ranging from blues, jazz, rock and indie rock. I will give you tons of music to listen to and interpret and teach you how to learn tunes by ear. You will understand the forms of jazz tunes such as aaba Aba and abc. You will learn how to play the tunes you listen to and take the concepts of drum beats and drum rudiments used within them o make them your own and use them in your original playing. I also teach how to read standard drum notation, and can teach you how time signatures work and the values of notes if you don’t already know.

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

Eli was great. He was very patient with my son during his very first music lesson. Eli made the lesson fun and enjoyable. My son enjoyed the lesson very much and is looking forward to his next one.

Mike is very approachable and makes learning easy. I tried to learn the ukulele on my own and it was overwhelming and frustrating. He is very knowledgeable and is experienced in a variety of music, including drums. In every lesson, my skills and confidence improve! Mike is the best!

I always enjoy working with him because he is so easy to get along with and he has a great sense of humor.

"My son (just turned 5) recently started playing drums. Max has done an awesome job teaching him remotely via FaceTime. Admittedly, my son gets distracted during some of their sessions, but Max is great at working with him on simple patterns and techniques to help him learn the basics. Max us even gives us things to work on with our son by ourselves to make sure he keeps learning. Overall, I've been surprised how well remote lessons worked, and as long as my son is having fun we'll keep doing it!"

"David is an extraordinary teacher

My 8-year old is taking drum lessons from David & my 10-year old is taking guitar. These lessons are something - to my surprise and elation - they look forward to every week. David is incredibly kind and patient (lucky for us) and super professional - he is on time to the minute every week.
We couldn't be more thrilled and frankly honored that David comes into our home every week to teach our sons these instruments.
Because of our experience I would recommend David and TakeLessons to anyone - children & adults alike."
