John is fantastic teacher and very knowledgeable about music. He has a great rapport with his students. My daughter is very enthusiastic about her drum lessons with John every week and always looks forward to it. I would highly recommend John to anyone interested in music lessons.

Not only is John an off-the-charts professional drummer, he's a fantastic human being as well! He loves music and it comes through in the lessons! In 35 years of playing and hanging around wannabees, John is the genuine musician! Anyone really wanting to learn correctly needs John. I recommend him 100%.

Private Drum Teacher

Hi! My name is Luke. I've been playing drums for 15 years and have been teaching private drum lessons for over 8 years. I love playing many styles ranging from jazz, rock, pop, hip-hop, funk, worship, Afro-Cuban, and classical. I graduated from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles with both an undergraduate and masters degree. I taught drumset classes at USC for two years and currently teach students from grades 5-12 at a public school here in Nashville. I have a full 8 microphone recording/broadcasting setup for online lessons along with two drum sets for interactive lessons and in-person jamming. We will work on groove, soloing, rudiments, independence, and reading, but above all we will HAVE FUN! Hope to hear from you soon!

About Luke

I've played drums for most of my life and the one thing I always tell my students is to have fun! If the drummer isn't enjoying it, the rest of the band will follow! Through music I've gotten to experience some amazing things such as working on the same bill as T-Pain for a short tour, playing in NY

Great first lesson!
Devon
Luke is a fantastic drum instructor! Not only is he super fun to be around, but he is a great teacher. He broke down concepts and techniques in ways that made sense and I learned so much from him. I would definitely recommend Luke for someone looking to take lessons!
Luke
Luke was the absolute coolest teacher ever. Not only is he a rad drummer himself, he has such a calm and cool demeanor. He just wants to share the awesome experience of playing the drumset. Luke showed me the right way to get started with the drums and now 2 years later I still think back to the advice Luke gave me as a beginner. He is an well-rounded musician and everyone stands to benefit from working with him.

My son and I take lessons from "Mr. Matt." He is always enthusiastic and supportive even if we're not the most musically talented. We love his mix of basic essentials, music style and theory, and plain rocking out to songs we pick that he shows us how to play.
Jessica
We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!
Michael
Matthew has been great for my son, Michael! He has learned a lot in a short period of time!

Mike is very approachable and makes learning easy. I tried to learn the ukulele on my own and it was overwhelming and frustrating. He is very knowledgeable and is experienced in a variety of music, including drums. In every lesson, my skills and confidence improve! Mike is the best!

"Amazing Drum Teacher

Jesse is an incredible instructor and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I have been taking drum lessons from him for just a few months and have improved incredibly since starting out knowing nothing. Very encouraging, and great at spotting aspects to improve upon.

Also, he puts together band nights with all of his students (across many different instruments) which are incredibly fun, and a great way to get practice with others.

Highly recommended!"
