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!
