Kevin provided guidance so I could optimize my set up and jump right into working on skills and techniques to get started. It was really fun, and I’ll be back!

Engaging, well organized instruction

Sep 11/2023

My 13 year old son has been taking lessons with Kevin for about a year and loves the combination of having an instructor who is well prepared for lessons, with a particular goal in mind for each lesson, and who is willing to work with him to play the music he likes best. My son really wanted to learn a song by a particular band, so Kevin found one that was at the right level and taught the skills my son next needed to learn for the next lesson.

Kevin sends a video of the lesson afterwards so his students can relook at what they are learning in case they forgot or are finding something challenging. My son hadn’t used that perk much until Kevin started teaching him songs from his preferred band. My son did end up rewatching parts of the video after that so that he could get through difficult sections.

You can’t get much better than an instructor who is BOTH engaging and well-organized/goal oriented. I highly recommend SimpleDrummer.
