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.

I am a sax player and amateur drum enthusiast. Scott and I toured for a few years together.
He was always figuring things out in the van with his trusty air drumset. When he could finally sit down at his set, he would pretty much have the idea figured out and ready to apply to reality.
We would talk endlessly about various drum and rhythm topics and he very effortlessly talked me through techniques and ideas. I’ve learned a great deal from him.
On top of that, he is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.
There’s a fire inside of him and it comes out through his playing and interpersonal relationships in a beautiful way.

Nikki
Scott is an enthusiastic and gifted music teacher´┐╝ with a wealth of experience that he generously shares.
We were looking for a flexible, knowledgeable, yet reliable teacher who would inspire our son to grow his own musical talent. We were blessed to find Scott, who fit those roles wonderfully. Our son enjoyed and benefited from the interactions with Scott. We recommend him without a doubt.
Bob
Scott is an incredibly knowledgeable drummer. He possesses a wealth of wisdom on the drums that he has gained through years of professional gigging experience "on the front lines" so to speak. A kind hearted fellow who's love of music comes through in everything he does. He can help you be a better musician; he can help you be a better person.

Jimmie is a great instructor. Perfect for kids. He’s patient and my son looks forward to coming to his lessons!
Tory H.
My son is extremely pleased with his drum lessons he is receiving from Instructor Jimmy Howell Jr..
Desiree
Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

"I know a bit about drums myself, but wanted to find a professional instructor to teach my son. I've met a lot of teachers in San Diego who advertise that they teach a lot of different instruments and found that most of them know very little about drums and percussion (usually just basic rhythms that they learned from other instruments, and a few rudiments). Garrett on the other hand is exactly what my wife and I were looking for for our son. He specializes in drum set and percussion, is professional and very mature for his age, and an excellent teacher (I've learned a lot from the lessons as well). He gets along great with my son as well, and inspires him to practice hard throughout the week. We'll be sticking with Garrett for a very long time."

"Mike is an awesome teacher who takes interest in each student's personality and is able to customize the learning experience accordingly. My son is only 6 and yet he is making excellent progress and always enjoys his lessons. Mike makes sure there is always a personal connection and that makes the student comfortable and confident in playing music. He is always attentive to detail and is able to pinpoint what the student needs to work on and therefore there is always an improvement in technique. We were referred to him by a friend and are very happy with our decision to enroll our son. Highly recommended!"

"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!"

8 Sight Reading Practice Tips for Drummers

As a drummer, you might be faced with sight reading as you practice and audition. Here, San Diego, CA teacher Maegan W. shares her tips for sight reading practice...   There are two types of drummers: those who read music, and ones who don’t. I have met so many talented drummers who have decided they can’t or won’t read music, and never even give themselves a chance to try. Charts and sight reading can be overwhelming, but is a useful skill, and one that is easy if you do it ri …
