I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

Private Drum Teacher

Your time and money is too precious to waste on a mediocre teacher. My students get results from the very first lesson. For over 20 years I've helped students of all ages go far beyond their goals; whether it's learning a favorite song, getting in a band, winning music scholarships, or learning music for school ensembles. My lessons are tailored to your interests and taught at your pace.

About Gerald

Not all teachers are the same. I've had great success as a student and a teacher; making me the best choice to help aspiring drummers reach their goals.

HIRE GERALD NOW! I've had online lessons with several teachers before Gerald. He is absolutely the best! Even over the internet he can immediately zero in on what you're doing right, wrong, then show you the quickest and easiest way to get better. The sound quality of his studio is better than any other drum teacher. Instead of using the horrible mic that's built into a laptop or iPad that distorts and sounds terrible, Gerald using a dozen professional mics to give you superior sound during every lesson. He simply gives the best experience.

About Scott

Hi! I'm Scott. I usually perform using a one-man band setup I created. I modified guitar and made foot pedals to control a drum set, while singing. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer.

Wanted to share an update after multiple lessons - Scott is a virtuoso teacher - he has some many techniques and tricks for helping a person learn to sing - he's also able to start anyone signing right off the bat - not just learning scales or technique - it's so much more fun to learn while you are singing at the same time.
John
Scott is an incredible teacher - he brings so many years of experience and different techniques that I couldn't help but become a better singer!

Scott is amazing he was patient and support Scott started the fire and passion I once had so long ago. That I can not put a price tag on. As a Head Softball coach for 50 years I know how much that means.

Nathan was great! We lost internet at our house during the last 10 minutes of the lesson and Nathan was quick to solve the problem by adding another 10 minutes on to the end of our next lesson. It's nice to know that he has the flexibility and willingness to do that when things happen that are out of our control. And 2020 is often out of our control, Am I right?!

Online Drum Teacher

I attended Berklee College of Music with drum set as my principal instrument. Drumming is a huge passion of mine and I have an appreciation for many genres. From pop to death metal, I love playing it all and want to teach you how to engage with your favorite music! I can teach you a classical snare piece, or we can learn math rock. I can get you comfortable behind a kit so that you can play the music that moves you! PLEASE NOTE: I do not have a drum set at my studio, all lessons would need to be in-home.

"Mike was really the best instructor I could have asked for. Knowledgeable, patient, and best of all, chill when he needed to be. I was just picking up the drums for a high school band I was in at the time, and he was more than willing to help me learn whatever dumb song me or my band had decided sounded cool at the time. At the same time, he showed me a lot of really excellent practice techniques, directed me to some solid literature for different rhythms to work on, and would sit with me through a whole hour of my relentless mistakes like it was nothing. More than a good instructor, he's a really cool guy! He never missed a beat!"

He's great with our son and daughter, very knowledgeable with the drums, and talented at his craft. His studio is also very comfortable. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
