Mercer Island Drum Lessons

"Vance... I’d like to take a minute and thank you for teaching me how to

have so much fun on my new drum kit.  You’ve developed a great teaching

strategy – for me it’s the perfect balance of technique, drills, basics, different

music styles, and then there are all the songs we play along with!  

At first I felt self-conscious, but quickly became very comfortable. You really

stress that it’s fun and that my mistakes are ok and a part of the learning process.

I really like that you’ll play examples of the beats for me as slow or as fast as I ask,

so that I can hear the rhythms the way I need to understand them.


From the professional perspective, I appreciate that you are extremely reliable – you’ve

never cancelled a session, yet you’ve been flexible when I’ve needed to reschedule. You
clearly have a passion for drumming, and it comes through during my lessons.
I hope you never stop teaching!
