Great guy and awesome teacher! He will help you in whatever you want to accomplish and give you ideas if you aren't sure what you're looking for. Glenn will modify his teaching strategies to whatever makes you most comfortable and facilitates your learning style. He teaches the basics down to the intricacies of general percussion and will keep you motivated by sharing his adventures and projects with you! Very knowledgeable!

He is an excellent teacher! Just because you play drums doesn't mean you can teach drums. My son has shown so much growth working with Glenn. He is truly a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Instructor is clearly knowledgeable in music however, not skilled at assessing the best starting point for the student. Could be better if slowed the pace, and took the time to confirm that the student is absorbing what is being taught. Would be a great tutor for assisting in understanding, or reviewing what is being taught elsewhere. Not so much as an instructor for a beginner.
