Dan taught me to play dozens of genres over a decade of study, ranging from jazz and Latin standards to 9-min long progressive metal epics, and that one World Tour orchestral score with the tempo modulation. I've played at drop-in jazz jams and rock gigs thanks to Dan's training. Highly recommend.

Stephanie
We had a wonderful experience with Dan as my son's drum instructor. My son started at a fairly young age (6) and was interested in playing more what he heard on the radio, anywhere from Taylor Swift to Metallica. Dan was extremely patient in developing his lessons with my son by incorporating these types of songs in his lesson and keeping my son's interest up throughout the 30 minute lesson/"jam session." I'd highly recommend Dan to anyone interested in learning drum skills like those of Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, and other rock and roll legends.

Brian taught drums to me for probably four or five years, and it was seriously great. I always looked forward to having lessons with him because I knew I'd learn a lot and most importantly it would be fun. I don't take lessons anymore but I still think about many of the things he taught me when I sit down to practice. He definitely helped shape me into the drummer I am today and I'm proud to say he taught me.

Brian was my son’s first drum teacher. He was amazing! Ethan really learned the basics of how to play and enjoy the drums. We wish Brian lived closer so we could continue to have him as a teacher.

Brian Cramer thought our youngest son for I believe about 5 years. It was a great experience for our child. He loved his lessons and was always looking forward to his time with Brian. Noah became an excellent drummer and to this day can sit at his drum set and play really well. Brian was enthusiastic, fun and dedicated teacher. We were lucky to a found them at a time when our child was eager to learn. Thanks Brian!

"My son started with Keith on snare drum and absolutely loved the lessons so much he bugged me for a drum set constantly! Keith was very helpful in helping us to select a drum set and getting the best price. We found out that we have the #1 music merchant in the world right here in our town and they give Keiths students the best prices since he has sent them so many customers, so we saved an lot of money when it was time to buy a drum set. My son can't wait to get to his drum lesson every week"

"I have been taking drum lessons from Keith for a little over a year now. When I first started, I didn't even know how to hold a set a drum sticks! Now, I'm able read through sheet music, understand and play the beats. Keith has been great at pushing my limits, and helping me achieve the next level in each lesson. Whether that's been adding another drum beat into the mix, or pushing the speed at which I'm comfortable playing. Keith is incredibly passionate about the drums, and teaching his students. I truly enjoy and look forward to each lesson!"
