Private Drum Teacher

The things students would expect from me in a lesson would be the concept of keeping time with a metronome. Playing grooves that the student enjoys to hear. Using rudiments which would build creativity in the students playing. Exercises that building the strength of the student's wrist . The basic concepts of reading sheet music . And mainly to have fun playing over songs the student loves listening to.

This was my first experience with on line teaching and it was great. I had tried reading the books and watching some videos on You Tube and was not making progress. Just a few minutes with Paul and what I couldn't figure out suddenly made sense.

Looking forward to next week.

My son loves his lessons, he gets really nervous prior because he always wants to get it right however, he likes the fact he’s at home and no one is watching him as he’s learning! As his parents we like that as a military family that will be moving again this is something that we can keep normal for him since it’s done online as well! Paul Neatherly is wonderful with him as well and very patient! I recommend this service and Paul to anyone looking for this type of learning!

Matt is doing lessons with my 6-year old son and from the moment they met it was magic. Matt talks to him at a level he can understand, is so patient with him and really allows for him to have fun while learning at the same time. Matt is our third instructor over the past year and he is by far the best. My son is enthused about picking up the drums again and excited when Friday rolls around.

Michael is a patient and encouraging teacher. His lessons are energetic and we always get a lot done. You can tell, too, that he is knowledgeable and passionate about the material. He can apply both technical skill and professional experience to his lessons, while also adapting to the student and allowing them to advance at their own pace. He motivates with praise but will tell you when something needs work/practice. I leave every lesson excited to continue learning and improving. I recommend lessons with Michael!

Ronen really rocks! He is terrific with my son who can tend to have a short attention span and be fidgety. His explainations of the lessons are clear for my son comprehend and he is very patient. The lesson at Ronen's home which is very welcoming and he leaves in a great neighborhood which is a plus.

"My son Lucas has been taking drum lessons from Keith for 11 months or so and loves it. He's really come a long way in that time. One thing I noticed about Keith's teaching is that he uses visual metaphors that make it easy to transform what he's observing Luke do into what he needs need to be doing. Whether it be imagining the two sticking hands as typebars on an old typewriter or the bend of your sticking hand creating a curve much like the slope from the beach into the ocean, these images surely stick with you when you're home practicing. I don't wanna give any more of his images, they might be trade secrets. :)

But Keith's such a great teacher that I asked him to give me the time slot right after my son's lesson. When that time slot opened up I eagerly took it. I've had about 3 or 4 lessons so far and am really learning a lot. What I've learned is even improving my bass and guitar playing. I'm seeing rhythm in a different light and am even feeling like reading music may be something I'll soon be able to do.

He's a great teacher and a really great guy. He's got a wealth of knowledge and experience that could surely fill a book. I'd buy a copy for sure."

"I never expected to find a teacher as stellar as Rob Franco. It's one thing to be an accomplished drummer, but quite another to have the capacity to teach what you know. Rob's got both! He ably teaches theory, technique, and application. He has a wonderful warm personality that feeds a student's confidence without insincerity. It's obvious that Rob has been successfully teaching students how to drum for a good long time because he does it with such ease and good humor. Wanna learn how to drum? Read drum music? Understand how it all works? And have a really relaxed and fun time while you're learning? Rob Franco is your man."

"I started taking drum lessons at age 22 so I felt too old to begin learning how to play a new instrument. I'm so glad that Dennis was my teacher. He gave me confidence and encouragement to become the great drum player I am today. His methods of teaching are well rounded, his lesson plans are efficient and since day one he guaranteed I would be ready to play songs with a band in only 6 months. Indeed I started playing with several bands after 6 months of having lessons with Dennis. I highly recommend him as a drum teacher and mentor!"
