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.

You can expect me to listen to what you tell me, listen to how you play, and then give you information and activities to increase your understanding and develop your abilities. It could be anything from which end of the harmonica is up to advanced classical or jazz performance, or anything in between - blues harp, Neil Young, you name it.

About Winslow

My focus is on you - helping you achieve your goals with the harmonica, whatever they may be. Whatever inspires you to pick up the harmonica, whoever you want to emulate, whatever style grabs you, I bring the background, deep knowledge, and teaching experience to enrich your understanding and grow

He is great at what he does, and I couldn’t more highly recommend him!
Anna K.
My daughter was reluctant and shy; and had trouble fully engaging in the process. We met
Shawn, and she began to open up, gain confidence, and take charge of her learning herself, and we hardly recognize the person she has become. We are so lucky to have Shawn in our lives!
Louis
Shawn is a phenomenal musician and teacher. He made the process clear, fun, and worthwhile. I experienced growth that I never thought was possible with his kind and thoughtful guidance. Totally recommend!!!

"Hi--Mary Frances suggested that we go with 45-minute sessions, and I agree. We ran over about 15 minutes yesterday, so could you change my 30-minute charge to a 45-minute charge starting with yesterday's session? Then could you let me know once this change has been made so I can let her know? She will then change the schedule accordingly. Thanks, David"

"Jordan is an excellent teacher, he can play just about anything on the guitar and he teaches you how to teach yourself. Ive been with Jordan for 3 years and I've gone from complete beginner to being in a band myself. I used to feel so overwhelmed and didn't know which direction to go,now i know how to learn a song on my own and how to build up my technique,i can improve on my own. Jordan is a great teacher and he pushed me and i'm super lucky to have found him. p.s.... Jordan is super beast of a guitar player too, i have my own band now but i still haven't seen anyone that's better than him"
