He wasn’t very patient with my son. He was getting frustrated with him because he wasn’t catching on quickly. This was my sons first drum lesson he ever had. My son had ADHD so he requires patience. Needless to say my son didn’t want to go back to him. It was a waste of money. I paid for 4 lessons and only got one lesson out of the deal. I don’t recommend if your signing up a young child.

Extremely experienced, knowledgeable and professional - Very patient with kids and structures lessons around fundamentals while keeping the learning relevant to music kids enjoy. Purchased Groupon to test out my child's interest in the drums and we are continuing on with lessons-he is hooked!

About Callan Music and Drum Studio

Thom Callen sat behind his first drum kit at age 4. By 15, he was drumming at a professional level. These days, his skills with the skins have landed him gigs with award-winning songwriters and touring funk groups. But when he's not showcasing his talents, Thom trains fellow beat keepers of all ages and skill levels at Callan Music and Drum Studio.

After seating students behind a professional set, Thom teaches basic methods, such as keeping a simple beat. He then builds upon those tricks to more advanced techniques, like executing perfect drum fills while napping. Each lesson caters to students' individual paces, as well as their favorite styles, including jazz, rock, or world rhythm. If pupils provide an SD card, Thom can even record the lessons so students can listen back afterward.
