Evan has been really helpful for me as I get back into drum lessons after taking a break from formal learning. He helps me focus on the things that I want to learn, and breaks down challenges I face into parts that are easy to understand and practice. I value Evan’s humbleness, openness, knowledge, and general joy when it comes to drums and lessons. We are doing online lessons and I don’t think they miss a beat compared to in-person - in fact, it works better for my schedule. Thank you, Evan!
Jerker O.
Evan took extra time to check out some of my recordings before the lesson. Much appreciated, and it led to focusing on relevant stuff. Great first lesson!

If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Just had my first lesson with Mattia and he gave me a lot of valuable tips right away. Exercises to practice on my free time every day which I think will provide a solid base for my practice in the future. Looking forward to seeing how far I can go!
Aaron
Mattia is an extremely patient and cheerful teacher, an excellent instructor for a first time student. My child had no previous musical experience, and Mattia worked with him to learn the basics, even when he forgot his drum pad at his other parent's home. Mattia was flexible with the instruction time, and you can tell that he simply enjoys the subject and sharing his knowledge with others. Happily recommend!
David
I had a great first lesson with Mattia and he's an excellent teacher. I'm looking forward to learning more!

Excellent teaching and Great personality. Charles is very professional in his approach, but still adds fun and excitement to each session. One of the tools that he uses is that of repetitive practicing as the path to mastery. It works very well! He sets reachable goals that I always attain, and he creates a very welcoming environment for learning.

"I played drums in a school band and haven't played in a few years. I approached John about getting back into the art even though I was a little rusty. Previously I have taken lessons with people who were skilled gigging drummers but not the best educators. John is a great combination of professional musician and a skilled educator, as shown through his patience and ability to explain techniques and skills. I highly recommend John as a teacher for any level, because he has been so wonderful in getting me back on my musical feet!"

"My son was very impressed, asked why we had been taking drum lessons from his local instructor for so long. He was reticent before the lesson saying that he wasn't sure that our internet connection would be good enough, saying that he wasn't sure we could really do a lesson online instead of face to face. He came out of his room after the lesson and said he loved it, and that it worked really well, that our connection was just fine, and that he could hear everything on both sides. He was very happy with the result. He is really happy to have a clear goal of playing snare on the drum line in marching band, and he's very happy about having an instructor who can really help him to get there. Great experience so far!"
