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!

I'm quite an experienced singer. I've been seen in a cappella groups and bands and solo for many years however recently I've had trouble reaching my higher range and difficulty with falsetto. James has helped me to figure out the issue and I'm working on proper breath support and other issues I was having. My hope is to continue singing for the rest of my life and James has given me proper approach for vocal longevity.

Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!

David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

Ryan's style is relaxed and friendly. He walked carefully and deliberately through the material in the first lesson, but not so slow that it was boring.

"My 9 yr old son has been studying drums with Jesse for about 3 years now. He recently also started piano and ukulele. Jesse is a wonderful teacher. He knows his stuff, is patient but strict and gentle but firm. He even hosts recitals for his students a couple of times a year. We feel very fortunate to have signed up with Jesse. If you are interested in learning an instrument you will be glad to have Jesse as your instructor."

Mike has an easy teaching style which is very comforting. The hour felt like five minutes - I'm looking forward to future lessons."

My son has ADHD/anxiety and in the past had horrible instructors who were unwilling to understand or struggled working with him. Michael was patient and would find ways to keep him engaged and stress free. I would highly recommend him for anyone who wants to learn."

"Excellent teacher--highly recommended

We are so glad we found Eric! After trying (and failing) with two other drum coaches who lacked a crucial requirement--in one case, depth of knowledge, and in another case, patience--my son has been taught by Eric for three years and has become an excellent drummer. Eric is highly knowledgeable, very patient, and a great communicator. He is the best music teacher we've found (and that includes three music teachers we used for another child, who took lessons for several instruments). Eric is also very knowledgeable about several other instruments. You cannot find a better music teacher than Eric!"

"I started studying with Dave at the young age of 15. Under his care, he instilled in me a passion for music and the drums that I don’t think I would’ve gotten anywhere else. Because of him, I entered into Berklee College of Music as a competent MUSICIAN, never mind drummer. If you’re serious about learning how to play drums, you want an instructor whose passion is infectious, who will inspire you to want to get better after every lesson. I can’t recommend anyone higher than I recommend Dave."
