Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

I can't say enough about Sean! He is funny and engaging. My 8 yo looks forward to his weekly online lessons and loves to practice. Sean presents material that is a perfect balance of challenging and achievable. It is so exciting to see my son's progress with the Djembe and his understanding of music theory grow. Sean is a fabulous find!

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

Excellent teaching style! My son has learned so much in the past year, in how to master the drums, more than ever! Obviously, Murray loves what he does and is at the master level. My son gets so many compliments whenever he plays. Murray is just a caring, compassionate, and decent person.

Murray has been the Best Drum Teacher EVER! I have been through 4ish teachers and when I found Murray he helped me be able to play for my church! He will teach you multiple kinds of rhythms, beats, songs and grooves. And he has such a good attitude through every mistake I make! If you want a drum teacher who will teach you everything he can, and maybe some stuff he doesn't know, then Murray is the instructor for you!
