Excellent instructor! Positive, patient and great mix of focus on fundamentals vs. fun and challenging exercises to keep me engaged.

The first week is awesome. I had taken a class at a college for a quarter. I did very well and learned a lot. With that, John knew right where to start with me. Looking forward to getting the best sound I can. Thanks, John.

John is THE BEST. He is as knowledgeable as they come, inspires my daughter to become her best self, is communicative and flexible. Honestly, I am scared he will become too popular — he's OURS! <3

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.

It went perfectly fine.

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

Learn to be the best -- I teach you how to start so you can be polished and finished. I have been training to be a pro percussionist for over 20 years and I have extensive research and a background in taking lessons from some really great teachers. I have attended The Musicians institute and have been in drum line as some cool rock bands that were signed to a record label. I can give advice on how to become your best player weather its playing on your own or with a group. I have put in the many decades of hours of playing to figure out how to sharpen your skills much quicker so you can see results fast as a student.

About Seth

As a drummer I have opened up for Fall Out boy, The Beautiful Mistake, and many other local bands so the saying that goes "Those who can't do; teach" does not apply hear! I love playing jazz nowadays but can specialize in thrash, punk rock, bossa nova, southern rock, reggae, mardi gras, new orleans

"Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close."

"Rainice has helped me grow tremendously as a musician and develop a greater appreciation for percussion. I've studied with her for two years now and she is always super welcoming and positive in her approach. Rainice has helped me organize my audition preparation, overcome various technical issues I was having--especially on auxiliary percussion and marimba, and develop a better ear which has been particularly helpful for playing in orchestral settings. She has also given me lots of helpful advice based on her experiences in the field. Highly recommend!"

*Rudiments!!"
