"My lessons with Ezra have been awesome! Over the past couple of years, he has introduced me to concepts & ideas that have made a huge impact on my general approach to drumming, practice habits and technique. I am always amazed at Ezra's knowledge of drumming and percussion, his overall musicality, and his enthusiasm to share ideas. I would highly recommend drum lessons with Ezra to anybody looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, kind & patient teacher." - Anna C.
"Ezra is very knowledgeable and patient. He obviously loves playing music and that spirit comes through in his teaching.
I started with no drumming experience, so during our first lesson, we worked on some timing exercises just clapping hands. I couldn't do that very well at first but with Ezra's teaching, I started to develop a sense of rhythm.
Building on that foundation, we worked on rock beats and fills, jazz and blues beats and latin styles. I also learned about drum tuning, song structure and reading music.
So here we are a couple years later, I just finished my first band workshop with a live performance at the Sweetwater in Mill Valley. It was a blast! Thanks Ezra!" - Hank L.
