It is never too late to learn an instrument. I'm in my late twenties and I am very fortunate to have John as my drum teacher. John is super professional and patient. It started with how to hold the drum sticks. John would help to observe from different angles to correct me, and that's something you can hardly get from just watching online Youtube videos. Then the lessons went with techniques, beats, songs etc. The lessons always started with something basic, and after a while John would encourage you to do different combinations, to encourage you to explore. The lessons are fun and it's very fulfilling when you see yourself make progress month by month with such a great teacher. I highly recommend John.

My 9 yo started taking drums lesson with John end of last year. After a couple of in person lessons we have to change to online due to covid restriction. We did not know if it would work out as my son was a total beginner. Happy to say that John is a great drums teacher on and offline. His way of teaching and engaging with my kid is great and we are happy to see the progress.

My wife and I have our young sons learning from John and we are very happy with his work. He is excellent at explaining the exercises to them in a way that is easy to understand and is great at keeping them engaged. Our sons are developing a love for drumming while learning the proper skills from an extremely knowledgeable instructor.

It's been a few months taking drum lessons with John and I'm really enjoying the experience so far! I was a little nervous at first as a complete beginner but John was so welcoming and made the lessons fun and informative. I love how John focuses on the fundamentals and making the lessons about what I'm really interesting in learning at the same time. Thanks John!

John's ability to connect with my 8 year old son Aidan is fantastic. My son is very energetic and has never taken to any lessons well. John's ability to treat my son with respect and patience has paid off. Aidan is keen to play drums with John and he is progressing well.
