I only started attending lessons 6 weeks ago but I can already see a huge improvement in my abilities. Brad's energetic character, crazy talent and extensive knowledge in drumming has really motivated and inspired me to progress as a drummer. I would recommend Brad's Drumming to anyone and I'm excited for the continuing future drumming lessons. Thanks Brad!


My son has been attending Brad’s Drumming for the past 8 years. Brad is a very talented drummer and a great teacher. The skills and knowledge he has taught my son gave him the confidence to join the school Jazz Band, Concert band, lead the Percussion ensemble and perform solo drumming pieces. He has taught my son many drumming skills in areas such as jazz and latin and these have all greatly improved his skill levels in all areas of drumming. Brad is a very reliable teacher and I would highly recommend his drum school to anyone interested in learning the art of drumming


To All People Out There That Want To Learn Drums. Does not matter what age you are (I am of the senior) Brad is a great instructor. I also know some of his students and the rapport he builds with them is fantastic. He is very dedicated and explains things extremely well. I did not start learning the drums until 18 months ago and I am well over 50 years old. Brad gave me the encouragement and determination to learn. I’ve never read music before but I can now read drum music and am capable of playing along to some tracks I really enjoy. I thank you Brad Hobbs for persevering and being patient with me.
