Hello potential students, my name is Athan G. and I would love to be your new teacher! I have been teaching for over eight years, and love it as much as I love music itself. I have extensive experience in helping students reach their goals, becoming the best drummers and musicians that they can be. As a musician, I have been fortunate to study and play with some of L.A.'s top musicians, participating in the country's top student groups and receiving honors at many music festivals and competitions. The lessons I've learned from these great experiences I hope to pass on to you, the student, in order to help you get the most out of our lessons and to turn you into the best musician that you can be. Whether beginner or advanced, and any genre from jazz to rock to hip hop, I feel I have the knowledge to take your drumming and music-making to the highest level (and of course, have a blast doing it!) I have a passion for teaching, and would love to have you as my student!

· Drum · In home Athan has a really easy going teaching style and makes it very easy to learn. The exercises were very well applied and tuned into the music I also liked to hear. He was open to hearing my comments and working with my feedback during the lesson. Overall, I'd definitely recommend Athan to others.

· Drum · In studio Athan is such a patient instructor. With me being an "older" student who doesn't learn as fast as I used to, he is very encouraging and nurturing. He is very talented and overall a great teacher. I hope I will become as good as him as a drummer one day. =)
