Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.

I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Adam is an excellent teacher! I have always been intimidated by playing the drum set, but Adam was so good at explaining each step that it felt almost simple. After just a few lessons I was able to figure out some songs on my own, and felt confident enough to play with friends. Thank, Adam!

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

Drumming lessons with Jean Pierre are very good. He is a patient, and well mannered teacher and is very knowledgeable both academically and practically in music especially on the drums. I would definiatly recommend him if you wish to start drumming like Neil Peart.

"Hi, I just started taking lessons and I absolutely love it! I have an excellent teacher that takes his time to show me the right techniques and fundamentals to achieve the goal of playing professional. He has great expertise and pushes me to be the best. He makes sure I understand why I need to do certain things such as rudiments and learning to read notes. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. He's always full of energy and ready to teach me so I can go far in drumming. If your looking for a fun cool teacher full of energy who loves teaching the art of drumming Mr. Rufus is your guy! He has the passion and love for it and that motivates me and gives me that drive to keep pushing to go further in music!"

"I took up drums 2 years ago in my early 40's. Francisco was my first drum teacher, and he patiently introduced me to the instrument, exposed me to many different musical concepts and traditions, and really increased my interest in music and drumming. He is an amazing player, and I learned much from watching him play in lessons and also live. Unfortunately he moved from Boston to CA, which was my loss.I reccommend him without reservation."

"Awesome Teacher - Definitely would recommend

Michael has been a great teacher to my 5-year old. My son and I both came to him with no experience with drums/music education and Michael was able to teach my son in a way that was fun and kept the attention of a 5 year old, while still being able to grasp the concepts and foundations of music. As a parent, I admired his enthusiasm and excitement of my son’s progression. He is very passionate about what he does and it is exemplified through his lessons. My son truly enjoys the lessons and even practices on his own throughout the week and this is definitely attributable to Michael’s instruction style and passion for his craft. I would absolutely recommend Michael as a teacher."

I am a special type of learner and i had never held drum sticks before- Khalil was and still is beyond patient with me and what i appreciate most is that he works with how i learn best. there has been several times he has come up with a couple different ways for me to get certain lessons. he's able to do this because he has soo much experience and such an admirable love for the art.
If you are considering taking drum lessons definitely make sure you take classes with Khalil."
