My daughter has been with the Littleton Drum Studio since she was 3 (she's 7 now), and we've nothing but good things to say about Jake's instruction. Very good with kids, and very much about finding the things that a drummer wants to play...all while finding the right techniques that will help them get even better (rudiments...ah yes....rudiments) for the sake of them growing their own style and reaching their own goals. We highly recommend Jake, and all the other resources the Littleton Drum Studio has to offer.
Jake is an amazing teacher. He makes learning fun and definitely challenges the student to keep learning more. He is sensitive to their emotional state that day and helps the student maximize their time with him regardless of what happened before they came through his door. He meets them where they are at- and then guides them along to where he thinks they can go. Not only is my daughter a better drummer, but she is listening to music in a more discerning fashion since studying with Jake. As her skills develop, her confidence in life increases. I have been a teacher (not of music) for 20 years, and I think Jake is a gifted instructor. He makes me want to take drum lessons to see what I can accomplish!
Our son Dylan has been taking lessons from Jake for a year and a half. When he started with Jake, he mainly wanted to play 80's rock. In a short amount of time with some encouragement from Jake, he expanded his musical interests and Jake helped him expand his skill set. He auditioned for and got into his middle school Jazz band. He was then recruited by [Dakota Ridge High School] to play in their marching band and had a blast. He recently played with in the All-County Honor Jazz Band. We could not be happier with the way Jake has taken Dylan's passion and helped him improve and expand his drumming skills.
Thanks so much!!
Just wanted to give a big Thank You for putting on yet another spectacular concert. It's so neat to see these kids (of all levels) experiencing the feeling of performing in front of a crowd. I can't tell you how much Andy learned. He was disappointed because he "messed up" a couple times, but we had a wonderful conversation about how he recovered and continued on. These are lessons that will not only help these kids in a performance situation, but also as an adult speaking in front of crowds.
Anyway, this is awesome! Keep up the great work.
