Garrett is incredibly personable and knowledgeable, the best attributes of a great teacher! I've learned so much from him already and am looking forward to more to come in future lessons. I'd highly recommend Garrett to learn basics and beyond of dj'ing.
Matthew A.
Garrett, is very knowledgeable, professional, patient and thorough. He continuously checks for understanding and is enthusiastic and passionate about what he does. My son had his first lesson and is very excited and is looking forward to his future lessons!
Dillard
Garrett was patient, kind, and professional when he meet with my son virtually. I was a little worried about how the meet was going to go because it was virtual; however, he did an excellent job rearranging the camera whenever he needed to provide the appropriate angles for my son to learn.

Private Drum Teacher

I teach with an encouraging, positive mentality that will foster fun and a love for the drums! For beginners, I start from the ground up with proper technique, rudiments, musicality, all while ensuring room for creativity and curiosity.

After that, and for drummers with a little more experience, you'll learn to:
-Use rudiments in a musical and practical way on the kit
-Build your drum vocabulary
-Play musically and with purpose
-Read and write music
-Write fast charts for gigging

I teach out of my music studio in my home, a roomy and professional space with a beautiful kit to play on, or online.

From day one, Cassie has not only been enthusiastic about music, but also about creating a relationship with my daughter. I can visibly see progress in my daughter's understanding of rhythm in what we listen to and she loves to create games around the subject. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Cassie.

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!

Learning drums is extremely fun and satisfying! It involves the entire body and the mind, challenging in many different ways and extremely rewarding.

While it can be demanding to learn an instrument, it can be as easy as you want it to be. Our lessons can be designed to fit your personal goal. In the lessons we will play songs, study technique and reading and learn different genres of music - all while having fun!

I have been teaching for over 10 years, with experience in all levels (Beginner to Advanced) and in every age group. I am very passionate about teaching music, I believe it has the power to change lives, and also helps with just putting a smile on your face :)

I had a great experience with Noam. Each lesson had a structure as we explored various elements in each lesson covering a lot of ground. Noam is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. Noam has the ability to take a complex concept and break it down until you grasp it completely. Each lesson was productive and enjoyable. Thank you Noam!
Lauren L.
Noam is an excellent drum tutor!

He is so knowledgeable about the drums and passionate about sharing that knowledge. His lessons are well structured to make the most of the time available to practice existing skills and learn new techniques, as well as being fun!

He takes the time to really focus on your existing technique in order to iron out any bad habits and he breaks down new techniques in a simple and easy to learn manner.

Highly recommended!
Pia
Noam is a fantastic teacher! I had a great time learning with him. He was very patient, creative and supportive. We studied different genres of music and went through rhythms from all around the world - it was so interesting. Noam was always very punctual and super professional. Highly recommended!

"If you have been looking for a great drum teacher, Michael is your last stop! He has the ability to communicate with the students and parents and make drumming fun. His students response to him very well and enjoy going to weekly lesson.
My son started with Michael when he entered 6th grade and is now a Junior playing for Marina HS Marching Band, Drum line, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band.
If you have the time and sit in a lesson with your children, you will soon realize that your money is well spent...not a wasted minute in that 1/2 hour lesson."

Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!"
