Check Out What Some Of My Student’s Have To Say…
Engaging, well organized instruction
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.
Best way to learn!
I’m a beginner (never played any music instruments in the past) and Kevin has been phenomenal for my virtual learning process. I’ve taken lessons with couple of other instructors (for about 8 months prior to starting with Kevin) and there are a plenty of times I felt like I’m not seeing the path forward, or come out of the class confused and more frustrated. With Kevin that’s not the case; he has a good structure in place and helps to build on top of each lesson (like building blocks). He also records and sends you videos of the lessons if you take his 60 min class, which helps me with the review process when I practice offline and I can go back to the video to watch and relearn.
Kevin is multiple time zones away from me and yet I have the flexibility to schedule time that works for me and learn when I want to learn. There is NO pressure to meet every week or take x number of lessons or you loose your money etc., When you are ready to take a lesson, you simply schedule with him 48 hours ahead and pay online on his website. Then you Join the online class at the scheduled time. It’s that easy!
I highly recommend Kevin for your drum lessons regardless of your skill level.
Excellent and engaging teacher!
Our son first took a class with Kevin during the pandemic. He’d had a few virtual drum lessons before but found it hard to engage (he was 7 at the time). His first lesson with Kevin was such a different experience!
Our son was engaged from the start and (the most important part), he stayed engaged through the lesson! Kevin has a natural and easy way of making the class fun, interesting and has really encouraged our son with his love of music in general. He’s also inspired our son to practice more and he just seems to enjoy playing the drums more in general now.
Like many, we’ve done several virtual classes of so many different types over the past couple of years and Kevin is definitely a favorite!
Good lesson experience
Very good professional drummer. Connects with students very well!
Great lessons that give me direction.
I really enjoy drum lessons with Kevin. I am a beginner and have been practicing random stuff before I found Kevin and we have been doing zoom lessons since. He provides well-structured sessions in each lesson in multiple areas so that you would develop as a well-rounded drummer over time.
I find two of the most helpful things that he does well is clear communication about what the goal should be and very importantly what feedback mechanism that you need to have during self-practice. So I get a lot out of Kevin’s lessons and I highly recommend his lessons.
