Thomas R. Sacramento, CA

I've been drumming for over 8 years now and teaching for over 3. I've had a big influence from rock, grunge, and alternative, but I dabble in bits of everything. I prefer to start with beginner students and work through intermediate. I teach all the way from the basics and forward. I will also teach you how to read and write music! My style is to teach the student what they want to learn and introduce them to new ideas. I'm very patient because we are all learning more every day.

Since the beginning of our lessons, Tim has been on time, easy going, patient and challenging. A great teacher for beginners but I'm sure just as great a teacher for any level student. I will continue to learn from his drumming expertise :)

Professional Teacher That Goes Extra Mile

Tim is an excellent teacher for my son. It is wonderful to have a teacher that is willing to meet the needs of the student instead of imposing their agenda on the student. An example of that is finding out what kind of music my son wanted to play and tailoring the lessons for that genre. This even included looking up music to bring to the lesson for a song that my son wanted to learn to play. Tim is able to explain new concepts well and can adapt his teaching to something different when a concept is not being grasp by the student. He is an excellent choice for us!

Awesome Skype Lessons

Tim is a very cool cat. He has the ability to teach for beginners or dig deep for those drummers who already have experience. If you are looking for a dependable teacher..... Look no further.

I like to teach drum set utilizing instructional books so that a student can learn drum beats through true music notation.

My name is Justin B. and I've been a professional drummer and instructor the last 15 years. I have toured extensively throughout the United States, as well as playing in the UK.

Justin is a tremendous drummer and his experience from student to performer makes him an excellent teacher. He customizes the lessons to what I want to do and learn, and makes it fun in the process. I look forward to my weekly lessons and wish I could go more often.

Instructor was very helpful

I am an experienced drummer that got back into playing 2 years ago after a 15 year hiatus. I called Take Lessons to get an instructor that could look at my playing abilities and help me learn where my deficiencies were and work on them.
It was really great getting to know Justin, with his insight and ability to see what was going on with me, I was able to get focused and overcome those deficiencies or at least work on them.
He gave me a new direction to go with my rehearseal time that I hadn't yet thought of. I will help with my speed and accuracy.
I'm really glad that I called and am happy to call Justin a new friend.

Matt K. Fair Oaks, CA

About Matt

I have been playing drums for over ten years and counting. From bands to teaching I am involved in music and drums in every possible way. With some college experience in theory, world, and jazz music its helped round me into an all around musician. My passion is creating music and in the last ten years iv drummed on over ten albums and counting, in many different styles. While I've been in a touring act and play a lot of live shows, I still prefer teaching first and gigging second. I can teach you how to read, and write drum music, many exercises for the drum kit and snare drummer, as well as proper technique and I can help you with gear questions. I specialize in being a well rounded drummer, which means I love to study different kinds of rhythm from around the world, although if you ...

Instant Satisfaction

Matt is doing lessons with my 6-year old son and from the moment they met it was magic. Matt talks to him at a level he can understand, is so patient with him and really allows for him to have fun while learning at the same time. Matt is our third instructor over the past year and he is by far the best. My son is enthused about picking up the drums again and excited when Friday rolls around.
