Being good at teaching is as important as what you're teaching. Some time back I had a middle school student come to me for drum lessons who had been studying with another drum teacher for a year.

It’s the Best Time of Year to Experience Drum Lessons

Being Summer most of us music teachers have extra openings due to students taking holidays, which makes it a great time for you to take drum lessons that fit in with your schedule.
