First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)
Cathy Gertz
Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..
Jaser S.
Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

About Will

Will Fletcher Instruction has been going strong since 2009. New students starting this year are doing great along w all the older, more musically advanced students. I want you to play music. I don't care how we get there as long as on your specific instrument you want to learn, you are making music

Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.
Eddie
Great Fun!
Alan
things are going well.....Will is a very helpfull and agreeable teacher....am considering more lessons in the future....but i don't like this company's auto renewing me for lessons...but...that ain't Wills fault....i look forward to seeing his Studio in Action!.....that's the next lesson.....

Patient, focused, encouraging and time efficient. He was good at keeping our youngster on task and making the experience fun. Wish he was able to take our child further with piano. I don't know how much was Tyler and how much was our child, but our kiddo learned quickly from Tyler. Thank you Tyler!

"Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience."

"My 15-year-old son has been taking lessons from Brandon for at least 4 years. When I asked him to review Brandon, he shelved his normal sarcasm and responded with: “I don’t know, he’s Brandon. He’s a good guy. He’s patient with me and he has the knowledge and materials. He knows when to go over simple rudiments and when to relax and teach a song.” As a mom, I can’t say enough about him. He is super talented, respectful, reliable, punctual, and cool. We consider him a friend."

My child was pretty new to drums and has advanced so far under the direction of Tom. He also has been a great support to bring him up to speed along with introducing him to new music and broaden his musical talents.

"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!"
