My son, Owen, has been taught by Corey for several months. Corey's an awesome drum instructor, encouraging, patient, and dedicated to his students. If you're interested in drumming for fun, or thinking of making a career out of it, I strongly recommend Corey. Corey is able to teach all age levels and instruct sight reading. Excellent teacher! We're very lucky to have him as our drum instructor!

After many years I revisited my passion for drumming and became an avid student of Corey's. He is a master teacher and has become a good friend. He takes the time to teach in a way that makes drumming fun and a great learning experience. Corey has a knack for tapping (pun intended!) into one's 'inner drummer'. I highly recommend Corey to anyone who's interested in any and all aspects of drumming! Kudos!!
