I think playing music should be about having fun. Lessons are often linked to visions of people sitting down with an instrument and trying to drill a very difficult piece of music over and over until they can play it right. However, my number one goal every time I sit behind an instrument is to have fun and I try to express that to all my students. A music lesson should be an environment in which one can really test themselves, while at the same time, wear a smile on their face and enjoying the art of learning. Their is nothing more satisfying to a teacher than seeing the gears in a student's head start to roll when they are learning something. Then seeing the look on their face when they finally get it is amazing. A proud expression immediately illuminates them after they realize they have climbed a mountain. The benefit is not only the fact that they have reached the top of the mountain, but the climb lead to a wide open space of possibilities.
In my opinion, the drums are fun for ...

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson. The tailored lessons make for a low pressure learning environment to fit your needs. As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band or acoustic drum-set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. In the end, I want my students to be comfortable and confident when performing with bandmates in front of an audience. If you are comfortable and confident then you will have fun. It all works together. Parents are welcome to sit in and listen.

He keeps it fun, easy and motivational, but also has challenged our little drummer. He is very encouraging and positive with our son's progress. John is always on time and is a great communicator. We definitely recommend John!"

"Taking drum lessons with Thomas online has been so rewarding. I finally dusted off my old drums and went on a search to find a great teacher and I found him. I'm not looking to become the next Neil Peart or anything. Just want to have fun and learn. He's very easy to talk to and helps me grasp musical concepts in a really digestible way. He has me working on exercises and my durability on the drum set has improved worlds beyond where I thought I could ever be. I really love his work with Minor Characters, a Chicago band he was in. I'm an older guy but I was motivated by Thomas to start jamming in the garage with some friends of mine who play guitar and bass We have about 10 songs we play each week and Thomas helps me work through each one and every week I get better. Take lessons with this guy. He'll change your life!"

"Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!"

"David is an extraordinary teacher

My 8-year old is taking drum lessons from David & my 10-year old is taking guitar. These lessons are something - to my surprise and elation - they look forward to every week. David is incredibly kind and patient (lucky for us) and super professional - he is on time to the minute every week.
We couldn't be more thrilled and frankly honored that David comes into our home every week to teach our sons these instruments.
Because of our experience I would recommend David and TakeLessons to anyone - children & adults alike."
