Private Drum Teacher

In my lessons, I foucus on the techniques on drums, music listening, rhythm understanding and musicality as a musician. My goal as a teacher is to help my students to find out what their goals are musically, encourage them to do the practices and guide them into the right direction, so that in the end of the day, they would be able to play what they really like, be better on the instrument and have fun with it!

I give him ten from ten definitely one of the greatest instructors either in the experience that he has or in explaining and the most important thing he is respectful i recommend so much!
Farreen
Great at making sure you understand the basics of music theory before proceeding to the instrument itself. Helping me become a more confident and smarter musician.
Francine D.
I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!

My name is Justin, and I've been tutored by Paul since October 2018. I came to him without any prior music experience and unsure if I could ever learn to play the guitar. I'm glad that I chose him as my tutor. He knows how to explain different concepts in a way that I can understand. That coupled with his eagerness for me to get better makes him an excellent teacher. Every time I attend his class I'm always motivated to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to play an instrument.
Braylen W.
My son's first lesson with Paul went well. My son has ADHD and keeping his attention takes work. Even though my son had a meltdown during his lesson, Paul showed patience and continued to encourage him. After my son's first lesson, he was excited and told us how much he enjoyed drums.

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!
Tejas A.
My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

"My 12 year old daughter has a learning disability and a noise anxiety but really wanted to take drum lessons. She was extremely nervous and shy at first but Alfredo made her feel relaxed and comfortable. His encouragement and praise really brought out the best in her and after one hour of practicing together, she was able to use her arms and legs independently and keep a beat. He has a knack for explaining things so that even us non-musicians understand. My daughter is already looking forward to her next lesson which is a nice surprise compared to previous instruments and activities she's tried. Highly recommended."

"James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!"
