Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Private Drum Teacher

I've been teaching drums to students of all ages since 2004. I'm available for lessons at my home studio or your house, and I'm great with kids, however I ask that your child is at least 6 years old. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic drum beats and play along to some of your favorite songs. At the same time, we'll work on good drumming technique, note reading, developing good timing, and more. I'm a very patient and positive teacher and would be excited to hear from you! I pride myself on having long-term student retention. :)

I just had my first lesson with Alexa, and it was a lot of FUN!
She has a lot of positivity and good naturedness, easy to relate to. She also was able to come up with some good ideas for how to improve some of my playing.
I look forward to my next lesson!

Really good. Exactly what I need.
Rich S.
I have really enjoyed taking drum lessons with Johnny Rabb. He is not only a highly accomplished and talented musician, but a phenomenal teacher as well. As an older adult student who has studied with other teachers, I find Johnny's teaching style to be very engaging, creative and fun. His style allows him to challenge his students, but not overwhelm them as they progress with their lessons. I highly recommend Johnny for any student who is looking to take their playing to the next level!

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

Online Drum Teacher

I have been playing drums for over 30 years. I have toured with bands, recorded albums and played with many different musicians. I have also learned to play other instruments such as guitar and piano. And I have found great amazement and wonder while continuously learning on this musical journey. I can give a wide perspective, not just from the drum throne. Drumming can be a very special part of your life. It does not have to be a career, but can be an amazing way to express yourself and learn about the world through many different rhythms and patterns. Music can be very formal, but there's also a lot of room for everyone to learn about improvisation and self expression.

About Robert

"Aaron was great with my son who is just starting out with drums. He slowed down where my son needed more support and sped up when he was gaining skills quickly. The support with recordings of the lessons and practice plan for the week is fantastic and the multiple camera views during the lesson was really helpful when showing techniques."

"Mr. Piper is patient with the speed at which students learn, is incredible at translating complex patterns and phrases into simple teaching styles that students can easily comprehend and adjust to, and builds my daughter's confidence in more than using the drum kit but also in her personal experiences. I say he cares about all his students more than just being a "drum" teacher, but a friend and at times a supporting parent for the youth. I interact with many of his adult students, and we are all very appreciative of his professionalism and individual connection to our styles while teaching each of us individually. He is very astute at the art and mechanics of drumming which translates into a flexible personable teacher.

Oh yes, For all the tangibles and intangibles, his prices are soooo affordable and competitive."

Casey is an amazing teacher. I have ZERO musical talent and Casey had me playing songs within a week. He makes learning fun and very easy. He is very knowledgeable not to mention a pretty sick drummer.
I started taking drum lessons just to check it out... and I keep coming back to learn more.
