Great teacher and very patient, he cared about what he was doing, Thanks Zaid!
Jeff
Zaid is knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He has taught my daughter for at least two years who had no experience and I feel that she has progressed faster than I think she would have at any typical music place.
The organization, and structure of the lessons are well planned and easy to follow.

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice

Wow! Mr. Paul is correcting 35 years of bad habits playing the piano. Can't wait to see what lesson #2 has in store. Great teacher and very patient.

Drew C.
Paul 's positive attitude and excitement for making music is a major factor in a good instructor. His encouragement and wanting you to learn makes the lessons challenging. If you listen to his expert musical advise, practice what he teaches, you will see a vast improvement in your playing ability and understanding of music. He is patient and has a good temperament that makes learning fun. I know I have challenged him with my rhythm issues but I have progressed to a level in a short time that I am confident in playing with others and enjoy making music. Thanks Paul!

Online Drum Teacher

I'm a full time touring musician, I studied music in school for 8 years, but I can honestly say I've learned more about music through my years as a touring musician. I find great joy in sharing all the things I've learned over the years.

I like getting to know my students; their expectations and goals as an aspiring drummer, and I build my curriculum around their needs.

In my lessons you can expect to learn, and have fun!

About Rob

Have you always wanted to play the drums? Do you want to jam along your favorite tracks or play live with a band? I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. I take pride in helping every student achieve their goals on thei

Rob is one of the most innovative and experienced experts on Ableton Live. He knows everything from how to set up the perfect arrangement for your backing tracks to how to automate lights synced to your show.
Alex S.
First lesson with Rob was very good. He was patient, got a feel for the student level and encouraged learning and creativity. Awesome experience.
Ryan
Of all my year's of formal education, I can confidently say my time as a student under Rob was perhaps the most significant. He demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience, and genuine care into my development, and took me from a guy who was VERY rough on the drums to a proficiency level.

On top of building the physical mechanics and techniques to become a drummer, Rob put even more emphasis on how I internalized, felt, and heard the music. Each lesson focus was equally weighted with theory, practical use, real-time listening, and execution - developing all my senses and slowly building my foundation so I could take the material and know how to grow upon it outside of the lesson room.

Lessons with Rob is more than learning a cool fill, or a fun groove - even though those do happen - but it is learning how to become a musician, and I'll carry the lessons learned from him with me forever.

"Not only do we love the convenience of online lessons, but we also love our instructor, Blake! Besides his patience and enthusiasm for my 9yo son, who is learning to play the drums with Blake, his communication and flexibility are second to none, which is very important to this busy homeschooling mom. I wondered how effective online lessons would be, and it's been fabulous. Blake and my son hook up with Skype, so they can see each other, talk and form a relationship, making the instructions all the more effective. I highly recommend takelessons.com and of course, Blake. :)"

"I took up the drums at age 35 and took lessons with Keith for about a year - I give him my highest recommendation and would encourage other prospective drummers to seek him out! He has a contagious enthusiasm for both music and teaching, and I genuinely looked forward to my lessons. Learning drums (particularly as an adult) is a potentially frustrating endeavor, but Keith's methods emphasize constant progress: with every lesson I could feel and hear myself getting better. Practicing never felt like drudgery; rather, he motivated me to continue to learn at a comfortable pace.

He is both a talented musician and a gifted instructor, and I recommend him without reservation!
