Great drum teacher. I studied with Richard about a year. I had played before, but Richard helped me build a better drumming foundation and guided me to me play better.
I now am able to play in a cover band and use some of the concepts and techniques that I learned from my lessons with him.
I highly recommend Richard for drum lessons.
Gary
My 12 year old son took lessons with Richard for 2 years in Antlanta. He is a very friendly and patient teacher. I was amazed how quickly my son progressed within a short period of time. He is now playing in his first band. Unfortunately we had to move out of state and my son truly misses his lessons with Richard, especially because Richard made it always fun. If you are looking for a drum teacher, who can bring the best out of your child, then Richard is the guy for the job!

Do you want to play the drums? That's why you're here, and that's why I'm here. You will learn how to play the drums with the correct technique, learn limb independence (fancy phrase that just means learning how to use both hands and both feet to play drums), and you will learn basic drum beats and drum fills.

Intermediate students will learn notation, style, fills, and how to play idiomatically for whatever music you desire to play.

John, Is a knowledgeable and friendly drum teacher that is eager to help you reach your drum performance goals. Being a guitar player first, my lessons with John have been at a sporadic beginner pace as I attempt to generate time for both worlds. That being said John has been very patient and accommodating, and I'm sure he will help me dial in my drum skills.

"I have been taking lessons with Khalil for a little over 2 years now and it has been one of the best decisions i've made since landing in L.A. I am a special type of learner and i had never held drum sticks before- Khalil was and still is beyond patient with me and what i appreciate most is that he works with how i learn best. there has been several times he has come up with a couple different ways for me to get certain lessons. he's able to do this because he has soo much experience and such an admirable love for the art.
If you are considering taking drum lessons definitely make sure you take classes with Khalil."

"I started lessons with Bobby about 2 years ago as a total beginner with an awful case of performance anxiety. I'd never picked up a drum stick in my life, but decided on a whim that I wanted to play along with my favorite rock songs. The first song I wanted to learn was by Motley Crue, and without any hesitation whatsoever, Bobby walked me (the complete novice, mind you) through Tommy Lee's crazy-tough grooves and fills. Thanks to Bobby's patience and guidance, I can now play that song and many of my other favorites.

Bobby has been an incredible teacher; he is consistently patient, kind, and fun. He has a great way of creating engaging lessons that include a mix of learning to play specific songs and also working on drills that make playing those songs a little easier. If you're looking for a talented, supportive, and down to earth drum teacher, Bobby's your guy! I highly recommend him!"

"Brian's experience and passion for drumming become apparent during the first lesson. He is a talented musician and a wonderful teacher, adjusting the pace of each lesson to match your needs and your level of skill. His ability to play numerous styles makes him an ideal teacher for those up and coming drummers who don't want to get locked into playing one particular type of music. I've been playing drums for as long as Brian has, but even with all of my experience he has still helped me branch out and incorporate new techniques into my repertoire. Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn the basics, or an experienced drummer, looking to hone your skills in a particular area, Brian is a great teacher to turn to!"
