Aaron is very patient, and keeps the classes interesting. My 7 year old son had another instructor for couple months earlier but lost interest in djembe. With Aaron, my son is enjoying the classes and started liking djembe again. Highly recommended.

I am very happy with Kevin. He taught me a lot on the first class. He's very kind and patient in teaching me. I felt very at ease with him. I'm glad I chose him as my steel drum teacher. I highly recommend him!
