Andrew is very knowledgeable and very patient. He explains everything throughly. He communicates very well even after the lesson is over and he has left the house.

Andrew is a true professional and easy to learn from. He helps you set goals and consistent ways to achieve them. Two words: HUMAN METRONOME.
Kandace
I seriously cannot thank Andrew enough for what he has taught me! He is so patient, knowledgeable, and kind. He is a natural drummer through and through and his skills are truly inspiring. He’s a great guy to learn from and just be around. I feel like a total rockstar now!

Colin took the right amount of time to get to know my son and his skill level so that he could begin the instruction with what’s most relevant to my son. Colin was very patient and encouraging through out the lesson. My son is excited to come back for more lessons.

Fantastic instruction. Patient, clear, and ensured she was meeting my daughter where she is at. Significantly more productive class times compared with our last in person teacher.
Patrick
I have been learning from Jonathan for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on my playing.

I would highly recommend Jonathan to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!
Aurora
I had my first lesson with Jonathan today. He is personable, informative, gave constructive feedback and encouraged me. I found his style of instruction helpful.
I’m looking forward to my next lesson with him.

My teaching style is very flexible & hands on. My goal is to make beautiful music and I do this by taking technical exercises and giving them musical meaning. This means I focus on the ideas of time, vocabulary & dynamic playings, but within this still teaching essential technical exercises in order to create a well-rounded musician.

After each lesson I will email detailed notes, as well as any supplemental documents and/or music.

About Ross

Using my experience I am able to cater my lessons to students of all abilities, be it brand new or a seasoned player. I shape my curriculum to fit the needs of each and every student I meet & my end goal is always with the goal of maximizing their creativity potential to its fullest.

"Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience."

"I started lessons with Bobby about 2 years ago as a total beginner with an awful case of performance anxiety. I'd never picked up a drum stick in my life, but decided on a whim that I wanted to play along with my favorite rock songs. The first song I wanted to learn was by Motley Crue, and without any hesitation whatsoever, Bobby walked me (the complete novice, mind you) through Tommy Lee's crazy-tough grooves and fills. Thanks to Bobby's patience and guidance, I can now play that song and many of my other favorites.

Bobby has been an incredible teacher; he is consistently patient, kind, and fun. He has a great way of creating engaging lessons that include a mix of learning to play specific songs and also working on drills that make playing those songs a little easier. If you're looking for a talented, supportive, and down to earth drum teacher, Bobby's your guy! I highly recommend him!"

My child was pretty new to drums and has advanced so far under the direction of Tom. He also has been a great support to bring him up to speed along with introducing him to new music and broaden his musical talents.
