Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Anna-Lee L.

2 Drums lessons

Yesterday was my second drum lesson. Ever. I know nothing about music. Or the drums. But I just two lessons I have learned about quarter notes, eighth notes and sixteenth notes, how to hold my sticks, proper form and I am already feeling more comfortable and confident. The hour goes quickly and I have fun! Highly recommend.
Bill T.

10 Drums lessons

For instance, I sometimes learn best by watching, so if I ask him to show me something he readily does. Or, if I am thinking way ahead, such as how I may use a flam in a song, he doesn't get impatient and say, "we'll get to that," but instead, answers the question and talks about how it will be worked into our lessons. I highly recommend Stefano to anyone who wants to learn drums the right way.
Mac H.

4 Drums lessons

Can't recommend highly enough. Eternal meets you wherever you are in your career, professionally and creatively. I needed guidance with the technical side of my tracks, i.e. mixing, mastering, sound building, etc. Within just two or three lessons, my beats were bumping so much larger, drums cutting through the mix and everything finding a sonic place. I had the tools to sharpen my ear on my own time. He's a patient guide and very knowledgeable about all things music production.
