It's easy to say that Scott knows what he's talking about, he has plenty of experience and does a great job breaking things down to a simpler form. I've enjoyed my first month's classes and look forward to gaining a repertoire with him.

Private Drum Teacher

As a teacher that cares alot for the student, I get to know excactly what the student likes and needs. Music is fun and a passion so learning it has to be fun as well . We will be listenining to your favorite music as you learn to play to it. The best way to learn is to listen and then playing along with good instruction. Learning rudiments and syncopation, there are asignments to practice in the process.

I give him ten from ten definitely one of the greatest instructors either in the experience that he has or in explaining and the most important thing he is respectful i recommend so much!
Farreen
Great at making sure you understand the basics of music theory before proceeding to the instrument itself. Helping me become a more confident and smarter musician.
Francine D.
I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!

About Will

Will Fletcher Instruction has been going strong since 2009. New students starting this year are doing great along w all the older, more musically advanced students. I want you to play music. I don't care how we get there as long as on your specific instrument you want to learn, you are making music

Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

Great Fun!

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

"Christian is a very knowledgeable and patient drum instructor. As a music teacher and producer myself, I like to have a good understanding of instruments I don't play such as drums, and Christian has helped me have a much deeper understanding of drumming techniques, concepts, exercises, and styles. He is quite versatile, has a great understanding of music, and is a very effective communicator. I highly recommend!"
