"My son (13) is a current beginner student of Jeff's. Jeff has been a great instructor - patient, thorough and always positive. Jeff is encouraging and supportive - my son enjoys his lessons with him. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for an outstanding drum instructor."

- Arminda P.



"Jeff Neal taught me for 7 years. Over that time he became more than just a drum teacher, he became a friend and mentor to me. I was always excited to go to his lessons because I would improve every day with him. Every lesson I would learn something knew. Jeff is a great teacher and wonderful company, I'd recommend him to anyone. Perfect practice makes perfect and there are no sort cuts. "

-Carter Howard




"If you want to learn to play the drums right, Jeff is your man. He'll make sure your fundamentals are sound so that when you advance you can really fly! As an adult taking lessons with Jeff, I appreciate a true professional. Jeff is clear, makes the most of your time and is also eager to work with you on specific requests as well."


- Philip Chou



“My 8 year old daughter, Chloe, has been taking drum lessons from Jeff Neal for almost a year now. Jeff is excellent- incredibly supportive, very thorough, and teaches with humor and respect. His expectations are high, yet, his style is in no way overwhelming- Chloe works a lot in lessons, but she also laughs a lot. We think he is just great!”


– Courtney & Chloe F.



“He (Sam) was a really anxious nervous kid when he came to you. But your unbelievable patience, kindness and humor kept him going. Your focus on the fundamentals has helped him tremendously. You gave him the confidence to keep going and such a great foundation. He still quotes you on the way to hold the sticks.”
