Always enlightening, pleasantly challenging. Lesson time is my time, and I appreciate Jen's ability to keep me on my toes with exercises and her willingness to let me select songs to work on. I am getting a lot out of my studying with Jen, and I know that I can ach
Joe S.
Jen is a terrific instructor! First, she is knowledgeable about her instrument, which is great, but she’s also able to evaluate a student’s progress, and provide essential tips for improvement. She has a way of breaking down the problem into manageable segments. I finally feel that I’m on my way, and I’m looking forward to the next lesson!
Yanelly S.
Jenn was a fantastic instructor! I had always wanted to learn an instrument and when I was gifted a ukulele I immediately started looking for a teacher. She was patient and kind with instruction. She gave me plenty of music sheet to practice our weekly songs which I could use as homework throughout the week. She also went over strengthening and dexterity exercises and fingerpicking exercises. I had to end our lesson due to schedule constraints at work but I know she also teaches guitar and I hope to work with her to learn this instrument in the future!

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Ryan
I am really happy with my lessons with Carson. I have seen significant improvement since I started with him. He has extensive experience that most people can't give in regular drum lessons. Not only have I learned techniques for learning drums, but I have also learned a great deal about recording. I have also learned the basics of marimba, and xylophone as well which is not something that I thought I would be learning. I highly recommend this teacher!
Tina
Carson has a lot of patience, and a deep knowledge of drumming. This really helps me as a student, and I have made great progress since I started studying with him. He also utilizes recording in his teaching, so that I can track my progress.

Private Drum Teacher

Experienced drummer with 13 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty and I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

I had 4 lessons with Kevin. I had to stop due to a medical issue. I am a beginner and Kevin successfully got me to relax and feel comfortable on his awesome drum kit. He made a real effort to meet me on my level and made sure I was solid on the fundamentals. Best of all: I had a lot fun at his lessons! Highly recommended.

"We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor."

"Michael has been teaching drums to my 6-year-old son for the past 5 months. He has been really great to work with. My son loves going to his lessons, where he always has fun. Michael's demeanor is perfect for my son, keeping the lesson light and breezy in tone, but making sure he is always learning proper technique and advancing his skills.

Michael is very flexible, always working with us to adjust the schedule when needed. We rented drums at first (which we were able to do through Michael - I asked, he provided; no pressure sales), but when we were ready to purchase, he helped us find the right set. Michael even helped us get a reduced price through a local music store.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Michael. The best testimony that I can give is that my son loves to practice his drums every day, without having to be asked!"
