My experience as an electric guitar student of Justin's is nothing short of perfect for what I was looking for. Justin has a great studio with everything you'd need and is very focused on ensuring he's helping me learn what I want, not some standard, boring, antiquated way of teaching. He's got a TON of accomplishments under his belt (music and otherwise, he is also an actor!) from which to draw experience from and share with students. Very professional, personable and contemporary - IMO a perfect teacher and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for lessons!

Justin is an excellent vocal and music teacher overall, he's a friendly person and is very professional.

Highly recommend him!

Justin is an awesomely cool person and a very skilled instructor. His singing techniques and practices not only work but also challenge you to do better each day.

Private Drum Teacher

I will provide all of my students with the knowledge of basic rhythms/rudiments, techniques, and express what a good work ethic looks like when applied to a craft like music!

I specialize in Marching percussion, Jazz, and Funk drumming. I have marched with world-class drum lines and I play in a growing jazz/rock band, The Family Recipe. With the culmination of knowledge from my previous experience/instructors, I know the importance of good instruction and how to use those tools for maximum expression through drumming.

About Ethan

Hi hi! I am a professional drummer with a strong foundation. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors in Communications Studies and a Jazz Music Minor. I've been drumming for about ten years, spending time with some of the best instructors and the most dedicated ensembles.

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

"No experience, no problem. Colin knows how to play.

I had never played drums before my first lesson but I had a singing background which gave me a good rythm. Colin was able to assess my coordination and abilities within that first lesson and understand how hard to push me. Colin is very good at the drums but knows what it takes to get there. Despite his elite skills he is able to relate well to the beginner, understand the different issues they are having, and provide a solution. I've been taking lessons at Colin's house where he has a couple of drum sets in the basement. The equipment he has is very good. It can be a little cold in the basement during a minnesota winter but when you're drumming it's not a big deal. I would say that his basement is an average place to play, but he's got good equipment which is most important. While teaching he doesn't follow a lesson book. He provides a good progression of excersises that allow you to gradually learn while using the entire drum set. Colin is a great teacher who is always willing to answer your questions and provides very fun lessons."

All the songs I am/have learned are awesome and it's not confusing. In fact, its the exact opposite. If you ever have a question it isn't awkward or uncomfortable. All the songs I learn fit in my music taste and the way he teaches is very simple and I feel like i have made an incredible amount of progress. I can't wait for next lesson!"
