"Simply put, Rich MacDonald is a remarkable drum teacher. Educated at Berklee, he is a veteran working drummer who knows, plays and can teach any style of music. His patience and adaptability to specific student needs is the perfect persona for teaching young beginners. For intermediates, he is a calm, steady guide to correcting mistakes and quirks that get in the way of effective technique. Even for experienced drummers, he is an incredible resource for expanding capabilities and mastering unfamiliar styles. His charts, when needed, are professional models of clarity.

With a long background in music, but not drums, I studied with Rich for four years and would be still were it not for unrelated physical issues.

There's no one I could recommend more highly, as a drum teacher...as a person. Studying with Rich is not only drum education, it's enjoyable."

"David is an extraordinary teacher

My 8-year old is taking drum lessons from David & my 10-year old is taking guitar. These lessons are something - to my surprise and elation - they look forward to every week. David is incredibly kind and patient (lucky for us) and super professional - he is on time to the minute every week.
We couldn't be more thrilled and frankly honored that David comes into our home every week to teach our sons these instruments.
Because of our experience I would recommend David and TakeLessons to anyone - children & adults alike."

He is very talented, and his passion for drumming is evident in the way he teaches. Lessons are always fun. Aaron is patient and encouraging. I have a very random work schedule, and Aaron is always willing to accommodate me when scheduling a lesson."

"Matt is AWESOME. He has been a great musical role model for me since day one. The knowledge that Matt has passed down to me has completely reallocated my purpose as a musician and challenged me to question my role as a drummer in an ensemble situation. What insight! I have absolutely no doubt that I will be prepared to confidently attend college university music ensembles in the next couple of months, because of Matt's mentorship and how it has inspired me (and of course, taught me how) to achieve my best. Matt has exposed me to styles of music I didn't even know existed. His talent is beyond the capacity of any other teacher I've had, and my family and I respect him very much. Very personable, easy-going, and intelligent. Thank you Matt, for everything. :)"
