Jason is an AMAZING TEACHER!!! He is so fun and knowledgeable. I found him on Instagram. I was always admiring his guitar playing whenever I saw his videos. I reached out to him and I took my first lesson last week via Skype since I'm living in a different state. I'm looking forward to what he is gonna teach me next! Thank you so much Jason!
Jimmy
I took several lessons with Jason and he is a very knowledgeable guitar teacher and he makes the learning experience a good one. He breaks down the teaching experience so even the most beginning student can understand it and he caters to his students individual needs.

Private Drum Teacher

I'm a Berklee alum who was fortunate to study with Alan Dawson, and still use a lot of what I learned from him in my teaching. I've toured around the world playing drums as well as recording on both coasts and CO, and I most recently taught at the Aurora School of Rock for 4 1/2 years. I tailor each lesson individually for each student to make the learning experience unique and educational. You won't learn if it isn't fun, and I make it fun.

About Carl

Hi, I've been playing drums since I was 13 and have gotten to play all over the US, up in Canada and in Japan. I've recorded many albums and still record to this day. Before I decided to do the teaching and recording thing from home, I taught for over 4 years at the Aurora CO School of Rock, so I

Carl gave my daughter drum lessons over the course of a few years and I can honestly say after every lesson she had she had something good to say. Carl is a very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor and watching my daughter's skill level increase because of his instruction was great. I highly recommend Carl as an instructor.
Brittany
Carl is a wonderful instructor! He was able to help our very shy daughter progress from basic drums to more advanced drums, culminating in performance ready songs. She always enjoyed his instruction and has positive feedback on her time with Carl.

Online Drum Teacher

I've been teaching contemporary drum set in Orange County for over a decade, and many of my students have gone on to not only play and read notated drum set music with ease, but have continued their studies at arts high-schools and music colleges, with several of them continuing on to the professional world. I use an award winning curriculum used at many music academies and conservatories, and have received accolades for my ability to retain many students for many years. Within the first few lessons, a new student will be able to understand the basics of rhythm and snare drum notation, play a plethora of relatable and cool sounding grooves, and build a foundation that will serve the student for a life time.

Mike has designed a curriculum that is engaging, challenging, and fun. His curriculum and teaching style are also highly adaptable, whether you want to learn "by the book" and learn strict technique and theory, or if you want to purely have fun and learn a few songs. Either way, his lessons are fun, and your drumming will definitely improve with him as your guide.

Mr. Michael is so super awesome with our 8 year old. At first we were nervous but Michael is extremely engaging and made us and our son comfortable. He knew when to allow our son to have fun but also somehow was able to reel him in and make him get to work. We will continue our subscription with Michael for sure thank you!

"Not only is Joe's musicianship fantastic, but he's incredibly patient and easy to work with. He knows how to break the ice with a new student with humor and a lighthearted attitude!

I first met Joe because he was my personal trainer at the gym he used to work for. I then followed him out of the gym when he decided to start doing it on his own. Little did I know that he was also an amazing drummer and all-around professional musician!

Needless to say, Joe knows how to teach!"

"My 15-year-old son has been taking lessons from Brandon for at least 4 years. When I asked him to review Brandon, he shelved his normal sarcasm and responded with: “I don’t know, he’s Brandon. He’s a good guy. He’s patient with me and he has the knowledge and materials. He knows when to go over simple rudiments and when to relax and teach a song.” As a mom, I can’t say enough about him. He is super talented, respectful, reliable, punctual, and cool. We consider him a friend."

"We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor."
