About this pro

I'm the best.  All of my students are awesome, including the adults.  I have experience teaching kids and adults with special needs.

I've taught 25-30 drum lessons per week for the last 20 years.  I have taught at Berklee College of Music's Summer Percussion week.  I constantly gig around LA (The Baked Potato, The Viper Room, The Mint, etc.) and I still take lessons.

My drumming has been featured in the Rock Band Video game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flfjOGtVdpw

And I've played on tv: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixnln1P4y_o


If you decide to go with a cheaper drum instructor,  I suggest making sure that the teacher is actively gigging.  There are many music instructors that waste time teaching useless skills fyi.

I'm saving the world from terrible drumming.

  • Kelvin Sui

    Dylan is very professional and he has the good attitude to teach student. I like him as my drum teacher.

  • Walter Savinovich

    His patience with the students is quite remarkable. He outgrew the moniker of drum teacher for my son and became his music teacher. My son has turned into quite an exceptional drummer, and, greatly improved bass and guitar player under Dylan's tutelage. I highly recommend Dylan with unmitigated resolve.

  • Logan Lee

    The approach Dylan takes while teaching drums gives students a chance to really understand what they play and how they play it

  • Hannah

    He has excellent rapport with my son and his teaching is top notch. Good communication with us parents and super reliable.
