Jared is an amazing teacher. He is patient, he is encouraging and he has some mad skills. He makes my son excited about drums, and if you ever get a chance to see him perform, you will see his passion for drums and awesome talent.

Jared is a fantastic teacher and has a gift for making you feel encouraged yet showing you how to improve at the same time. The drum lesson I took was probably the best musical lesson I have ever taken.

Jared Chontos is a very well rounded musician, and an excellent drum teacher. He is very patient, and very good at explaining things. I am by no means a drummer, and I have problems with rhythm, but he was able to teach me the fundamentals, and how to keep a beat and simple drum groove.

I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Although I went into my lesson nervous, Jared put me right at ease with his patient and kind demeanor. His chops are uncanny and his talent is apparent. I LOVED my lessons with him - what a great guy to learn from.
