It was summer vacation when i had my 6 yr old daughter enrolled to Arts development school of music. Darryl was Chloe's piano & voice teacher. He is polite and patient with her. Although it was a short time for my kid, she learned a few farm songs to play, the correct positioning of her hands and basic notes to read. Overall he's a good teacher and with time & experience he will be very good in his craft.
Darrlly Valdez outstanding drum teacher. He's teaching drums to my son regardless with down syndrome. He has a lot of knowledge in teaching music and very patient. I was pleased in the way he made my son and I comfortable giving hope that my son one day he'll learn to play drums or any other instruments. Surprisingly my son has learned the notes quickly and he's happy to continue learning and spending a great time at the same time. This location in bellflower is clean, very professional and polite. Definitely I recommend Darrly Valdez.
Our 7 y/o son has developed a passion for playing drums under Darryl's instruction. His classes are well prepared, developmentally appropriate and enjoyable for our son. He definitely holds his students to a high standard that does nothing short of setting them up for success, not only in the instruments they play but in life as well. We see Darryl as a good role model for our son as he incorporates teaching respect , organization and responsibility on top of his fun and engaging drum lessons. As parents, it brings us joy to see our son take the initiative to practice his drums on his own and follow through on the skills he learned from Darryl.
The service is excellent. Darryl is very patient, always happy to provide support and extra help when needed. I like the enthusiasm Darryl put in every lesson.
