Client Testimonials


  • "Our 8-year old daughter has been studying with Kirk for about two years. We are thrilled to have found an instructor who is not only a talented professional musician but also happens to be very good at teaching and connecting with kids. Our daughter comes home from her lessons energized by what she has learned. One of Kirk’s special skills as a teacher is to lead by following her musical interests and using them to delve into the theory and technique behind each new groove. He also is very good at explaining challenging concepts in a way that makes sense from her young perspective. We credit his mentorship for both her growing love of music and her skill as a drummer.  We cannot recommend Kirk highly enough."

  • "Kirk is a dedicated and patient teacher that truly cares about his students’ musical growth. He is able to connect with his students to motivate them and keep them interested in playing, teaching not just how to play along to favorite songs but also learn fundamental techniques and notation reading. To quote my son, “Kirk is the best! He understands me, he is a really good teacher, he listens to me, and he makes me want to play the drums more. I give him 10 stars!”"

  • "My child feels Kirk is her biggest cheerleader in her drumming journey. Her parents appreciate his high expectations, thorough explanations, and professionalism. Kirk is casual, accessible, and easy to talk to, and he is a mentor. His encouragement makes her feel that becoming a better drummer is possible. We wholeheartedly recommend Kirk to any budding drummer or parent who values a blend of professionalism, encouragement, and lived experience in a music teacher."

  • "My son haș been taking drum lessons from Kirk for the past 5 years and he has grown from being interested but timid to being confident and very skilled at a young age. Kirk’s passion for drumming shines through in his lessons and in how he engages with his students. Kirk’s enthusiasm paired with his patient and attentive manner in which he approaches teaching has made for a wonderful experience for my son."
