Taking lessons with Kismat was both fun and educational, as it should be. I was introduced to a variety of different music theory concepts at a pace which suited me. It was never too difficult nor too easy. Of course your progress will be dictated by how much you practice, but Kismat's lessons will give you a clear path to follow. Over all I had a lot of fun learning from him, he's a great teacher and fun guy to jam with.
Kathy
Our son Joe has taken lessons with Kismat for about the last year. They have been the most productive lessons of our sons guitar playing! Kismat found a way to teach our son in a way that appealed to him and applied to his way of learning. I could not be happier with the experience! Thank you so much!
Ingrid
I was Kismat's employer at Guitar Center in Roseville, Minnesota. He was fun to work with and great with students of all ages and skill levels. His energy and positivity always brightened the day and inspired the customers.

Private Drum Teacher

My name is Robin Rapsys and as a drummer, I have booked, performed, and toured in small jazz combos, rock groups, and metal bands. I have also recorded and engineered drums and percussion for rock bands, film & TV, and jazz combos. Combine all that experience with years of teaching private and group lessons at a music academy and you will find a wide range of topics to learn about within the entire music industry. I teach out of my home recording studio in Prior Lake, MN where I record tracks on a regular basis. This gives my students an opportunity to get recording experience during their lesson.

About Robin

I offer drum lessons for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students supported by real-life experience in teaching at a music academy, touring and performing in bands, recording at my home studio, writing and reading music, advanced styles, etc.

Colin took the right amount of time to get to know my son and his skill level so that he could begin the instruction with what’s most relevant to my son. Colin was very patient and encouraging through out the lesson. My son is excited to come back for more lessons.

Colin is very friendly and sociable. He taught us how to set up the drum kits on the first day.

Instruction also includes how to play correctly so as not to develop negative playing habits. In the case that you have developed negative playing habits, how to correct them.

Emphasis is also placed on proper warm up techniques, stretching exercises, holding the sticks correctly, posture, plus drum kit "throne" seat placement, and correct stance, if playing concert snare or percussion. Independence is also developed through simple easy to grasp exercises. In addition, drum exercises are individually tailored to the particular needs of each student.

Chuck has also developed a special ear training method utilizing CD and MP3 technology. This method reduces the amount of time it normally takes to develop good listening skills. These listening skills decrease the time that it takes to learn new songs, and learn how to interact with other musicians.

Chuck is a very talented and experienced teacher, he makes the classes relax , entretained and fun. He is very insightful and detects my kid strength and weakness. I have seen my kid improving in his drum skill that eventually would take him to the next level.

Chuck is a fantastic teacher! He is really patient but also pushes me to go beyond what I think I can do. He is very systematic and fundamental, which has given me a great foundation in my rhythm skills.

"Evan is a terrific drum teacher for our two sons. My youngest is a beginner; Evan has structured lessons for him but definitely encourages creativity. My oldest is in a band at school and Evan is great at reinforcing the style of music that he plays at school (mostly jazz) and teaching other styles that my son enjoys playing (mostly rock). He is organized, dependable, and easy going. He is flexible when we have conflicts. Most importantly, not only does he have great skill but he has a great demeanor for teaching: he is kind, encouraging, and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommend him!"

He also tries to motivate me with music theory and history which definitely help me understand the music better and inspire me to master the basics.
