Tom is a great instructor! Cam is learning so much and making great progress on the drums!

This is our first Drum instructor and we are thrilled with Thomas. He is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about teaching. His approach is positive in nature, meeting the student where they are at, takes their interest as the lead, and starts teaching there. My 11 year old son really likes him too! We go to our 4th lesson this afternoon.
Paul
These lessons were great. Regarding drums, I was an absolute beginner, and Tommy's lessons turned out to be an excellent jump-start. I used to play keyboards and guitars before, and I enjoy picking up by ear rather than reading notation, so I really liked informal and 'non-notational' way the lessons went. There was no hard notation drill, and yet Tommy had covered most rudiments, basic techniques, and patterns needed to rock in about 10 lessons. I'd recommend this for anyone who doesn't know how to hold sticks but want to get introduced into rock drumming.

I have been performing drums for over 20 years and I have 15 years experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. Within the first few lessons your will be able to play basic songs and take fills and in short time you will be able to play syncopated grooves from all genres of music, make up your own grooves and fills and play essential rudiments. I have written two instructional books which I use along with other classic drum education material like Ted Reed's "Syncopation" and "Advanced Funk Studies" and "Stick Control". I love helping new students discover their talents and I can't wait to meet you!

Really nice class on topics I was aware of but not particularly experienced at... Chresten was fast but not too fast....he explained things over and over, aive us time to sample it, and then gave us pieces to practice on!

Chresten is a great music teacher. He’s been instructing my now 11 year old for 2 years. He is very patient, very flexible in meeting my son’s needs and always very pleasant. I recommend him highly.
Anna
Chresten is a very thorough and knowledgeable teacher. His background as a multi-instrumentalist really shines when he explains musical concepts, he has more than one way of making something clear! Very well versed in technical skills, techniques and exercises that will support your learning and give you a solid foundation upon which you can frolic later ))) HIghly recommend this instructor.

"David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!"

"Excellent drum instructor

Our son, Jonah, has been taking lessons with Mike for a little over 18 months. It was one of the best decisions we ever made for him. Mike established rapport with Jonah very quickly. He has learned our son's quirks, likes, capabilities - and tailors instruction accordingly. Mike is very professional, reliable, and there has never been a disconnect with communication. His studio is inviting to visitors, and we're so lucky to have him teach in our neighborhood."
