"Zak is an absolutely amazing drum teacher. He is patient, inspiring, and my son just adores him. He is a class act, and while we live around the corner from the school, I would travel miles for my son to have classes with Zak! We are so fortunate and lucky to have found him."

Parent Google Review: A Lee   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Our 5yo has Jake as a drum teacher and Natalie as his piano teacher at JTB and they’re both the absolute best!

Jake is so patient, and fun, and embrace’s our little guy’s quirkiness. He’s so thoughtful and engaged no matter the energy our son shows up with to his lesson. Our son loves showing his friends all he’s learning on the drums and continues to love to learn the drums largely because Jake is such a great teacher."

"Our son enjoys studying with Taylor a lot.  He started with Taylor when he was 9.  We took a break and when he we picked up again our son said he only wanted to continue studying if he could work with Taylor.  We love that Taylor focuses on basic techniques while giving our son the option to learn tunes he is interested in learning.  He communicates well and is good about following up with assignments."
