“Kevin is a wonderful instructor. We have been going for years and have referred many friends to him. He is always positive and encouraging. The quality of the instruction is top notch. My son looks forward to his drum lessons and advances his ability after every session.”
- Jennifer Hayhurst, Parent

"Kevin is an awesome drum teacher. He has all the elements that make a great educator. He is a very talented drummer. He connects with his students and understands their needs. He instills passion and takes a personal interest in their success. My daughter has thrived under his tutelage and exceeded all expectations. He has made a huge impact in my daughter's life as a drummer and as a person." 

- Janice Nyirady, Parent

"We are beyond grateful & lucky to have Kevin as our son's drum teacher. Kevin is experienced, knowledgable, patient, flexible, encouraging, responsive, passionate about his instrument and his job, and overall a wonderful person and influence on our son. We had other music teachers in the past, but no one comes even close to Kevin."  

- Maya Samardzija, Parent 

"Kevin is an amazing teacher. From the very beginning he has given me the resources and guidance to achieve my goals. He gives me the freedom to choose which path I want to take with my drumming and points me in the right direction. Not only do I learn a lot in his lessons, but I have a lot of fun as well. Kevin is motivating, encouraging, and positive. I am very thankful to have him as my drum teacher."

- Rachel Nyirady, Student 

"Maddie has been taking drum lessons from Kevin for a year and a half. She tends to be shy in new situations, so she was nervous when she started, but Kevin put her at ease immediately. He is encouraging and patient, but makes sure she gets the concept before moving on. Kevin is easy to talk to, answers my questions with a smile, and has been graciously accommodating when we have had scheduling issues with school. He also helped us make decisions when it was time to purchase a cajon and a drum kit. When I asked Maddie her favorite thing about her drum lesson, she answered, “I don’t have a favorite—I love it all!”. Thank you, Kevin, for giving our shy girl a way to shine! We appreciate all you do!"

- Kate Condon, Parent

"I have been taking lessons for 6 months but have been advancing so well. If someone said that 3 months ago I would have auditioned for a worship band, played for church, and be in a band I would have thought they were crazy. Every lesson is always fun and my confidence has grown tremendously. Kevin always works on the things you need most and has great patience when it comes to learning new skills. I would definitely recommend him!"

Drum Kit*
The Ludwig Pocket kit is an affordable solution for kids ages 4-10. It comes with everything needed to get them started. All the individual drums, hardware, and cymbals are included. 
Low Volume Cymbals
Drumheads (top)
The Low Volume cymbals are an excellent option if volume is an issue in your rehearsal space. These are the exact ones I use in my teaching studio. They feel and respond like real cymbals. *These are not a replacement for performing. These are meant for practicing only. 
Drumheads will eventually wear out. If you are looking to replace the top heads, make sure to measure the diameter to get the right size. If you are looking to replace any other heads (bottom, bass drum) please reach out so that I can send you the correct product.
