I break teaching down to an easy-to-understand language by demonstrating techniques, rudiments, drum set styles, and playing along with music within the drum lesson. I've been drumming for over 10 years, and I have been teaching for 4 years. I combine knowledge of contemporary drumming techniques along with applications handed down through other drummers for different learning experiences for students. Whether chosen as a hobby or a possible career route, having an experienced drum teacher is key.

He was my band teacher when I was in grade school. I’m now going into my freshman year of college and I still remember him! He was so engaging, kind, energetic, and really cared about each individual student. I always looked forward to band in the morning and during the school day. He was definitely meant to be an instructor! :)

John is fantastic teacher and very knowledgeable about music. He has a great rapport with his students. My daughter is very enthusiastic about her drum lessons with John every week and always looks forward to it. I would highly recommend John to anyone interested in music lessons.

Not only is John an off-the-charts professional drummer, he's a fantastic human being as well! He loves music and it comes through in the lessons! In 35 years of playing and hanging around wannabees, John is the genuine musician! Anyone really wanting to learn correctly needs John. I recommend him 100%.

Nicholas is the best instructor for developing great technique, groove, & practice habits. I still use his methods when I'm learning a new skill or maintaining my chops. I always look forward to a lesson with Nicholas because he inspires and challenges you to be the best you can, both inside and outside of the practice room.

Highly recommend Ronen as a drum instructor! I recently started to take lessons for the first time at the age of 52. Ronen has made this experience so much fun. He is so knowledgeable, extremely patient and understanding. He balances each lesson with not only teaching technical skill but also the history of various drum techniques which makes it so interesting. He is a great teacher and it is a privilege to take lessons from him!

"I have been taking drum lessons from Keith for a little over a year now. When I first started, I didn't even know how to hold a set a drum sticks! Now, I'm able read through sheet music, understand and play the beats. Keith has been great at pushing my limits, and helping me achieve the next level in each lesson. Whether that's been adding another drum beat into the mix, or pushing the speed at which I'm comfortable playing. Keith is incredibly passionate about the drums, and teaching his students. I truly enjoy and look forward to each lesson!"
