Student Testimonials

I took guitar lessons, and found my teacher to be on time, professional, and able to answer my questions and to carefully guide my learning. Everyone should know that they now have a brand new space which is much bigger and has central AC and even a small performance hall. Great school for the East Cambridge community!

John E, Cambridge, MA

Chris is a great teacher – he plans lessons thoughtfully and makes them both challenging and fun. He also provides a good balance of encouragement/praise for progress and guilt-tripping for not practicing enough. He does his job in a professional and personable way, and he is not just some musician who is trying to figure out how to teach. He is a professional musician and a skilled teacher. I highly recommend Chris D. as a drum instructor and School of Groove.
