Top of the line lessons & content. Enjoying how much progress I’ve made in such little amount of time. Thanks Eric
Jim Castleton
Eric Ferrer teaching style is very clear/simple/ and intuitive. He really shows you there’s simplicity in learning anything. I thought the piano was a stride i always wanted to take on. Yet with Eric the process in learning how to use both hands was so simple that I was very surprised.
John M.
I recently bought a drum set to starting how to play but coming from no experience I had no idea what I was doing. I felt sloppy and uncoordinated so I decided to try and find a teacher that can meet my schedule/expectations. That is when I stumbled upon Eric Ferrer’s profile. The lessons were soooooo Simplistic 😌 he really gave me peace of mind. Eric Broke the process into its barebones and revealed how simple it is to learn drums. I love my new teacher, he has the best patience, attitude, and commitment to you the student and the lesson.

I came to Mike with no prior experience in playing drums or reading music. Mike's teaching technique is easy to follow and he explains things in a manner that is easy to understand. Mike is very comfortable to study under and he is always so positive."

"Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!"

Matthew's home studio is immaculate and inviting for budding musicians! Thank you Matthew for making our son's first experience with lessons challenging and fun at the same time. I am even learning musical terminology with my son ( I even secretly practice the drums when no one is around - it's like 2 for the price of one!)."

"I have been taking drum lessons from Keith for a little over a year now. When I first started, I didn't even know how to hold a set a drum sticks! Now, I'm able read through sheet music, understand and play the beats. Keith has been great at pushing my limits, and helping me achieve the next level in each lesson. Whether that's been adding another drum beat into the mix, or pushing the speed at which I'm comfortable playing. Keith is incredibly passionate about the drums, and teaching his students. I truly enjoy and look forward to each lesson!"
