We had our first saxophone lesson with Benjamin today and it was excellent! He is clearly a master that can assess a student’s skill level and adapt the lesson to suit their needs. He is just what we needed :)

I specialize in teaching the techniques of playing the drum set, and I'd love to show you how to do it. So, sign up! I promise it'll be fun. You won't regret it.

Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!
Janna R.
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!

Mickey is an incredible teacher who has helped me grow immensely as a musician through their personalized and encouraging approach. Mickey met me exactly where I was at when I first started lessons and has known throughout our time together exactly where I need to be challenged and where I need extra support which has helped me better understand my own progress as a learner. I had been taking lessons with Mickey for a year in-person when we switched to virtual and the quality and attention to detail Mickey provides in our lessons has not been affected in the least. Mickey is a patient and engaging teacher and I can not recommend taking lessons with Mickey enough!
Catherine
Mickey is awesome! We only got the opportunity to do one in-person class before we had to go virtual, and she adopted very well and very quickly to that format. When I expressed frustration at how difficult it felt for me to learn certain things, she would quickly adjust her method or way of teaching that particular skill, or slow it down a bit and break it down more, so I was able to look at things from a different angle and more easily understand them. For me that's huge because I can get down on myself really easily if I don't pick something up quickly. I truly can't recommend her enough.
Michele.
Mickey is an exceptional teacher- patient and adaptable, she knows how to communicate precise technique down to the smallest detail. No small feat considering we’re working virtually. Each lesson feels like I’ve got more usable tools and techniques. She’s equally effective at explaining theory both abstract and in practical terms. Would highly recommend (and have already) to anyone thinking about hittin the drums.

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

"Francisco is a patient and thorough drum teacher. I took lessons with him for approximately a year and learned so much that I still apply today. I would still be taking lessons with him but moved away from Southern California. He tailors his lessons to your personal goals and gives you actionable steps for the week ahead but also exposes you to larger concepts to show you what's possible. I regularly left lessons with him with my mind blown feeling very excited for the new possibilities in drumming that were being opened to me. After taking lessons with Francisco I feel like I have a toolbox of skills and knowledge that I will use my whole drumming life. He is extremely passionate about his craft and takes your personal goals seriously. I'd recommend him to any drummer of any style."

Mike is a great Drum instructor. I am a beginner and felt he did a great job with my skill level. He has a lesson plan but is very flexible in learning the style of music you want to hear. He helps you achieve the goal you have with drums whether it is to be in a band or just for a hobby.

Lessons are fun and detailed without being boring."
