Having been a self taught drummer I can honestly say that starting to take lessons with John was one of the best musical decisions I have ever made!!!! Within 6 months of working with John I could already use a far better vocabulary and the guys in the band can confirm this. John is an excellent listener and will make sure you get the best use from your time. He is also one of the nicest guys and makes the whole process fun and enjoyable. He has helped me out with technique, vocabulary, my own music where I've been stuck and the absolute most important thing...... How to practice to make the best use of my time between classes. The lesson plan is well structured according your abilities with a view to achieving your long term goals.
If your thinking of taking lessons I would highly recommend John.
