Very pleased. Had our 1st drum lesson today. Mike was very accommodating since we had to postpone meeting for several months due to C19. Totally worth the wait. My son was hands on the drums from start to finish. Mike is a very experienced teacher and makes learning fun. We ended up enrolling our daughter as well. They are super excited and looking forward to their next class.

I got the free trial lesson as a gift from my daughter. Mike was a wonderful teacher! He was funny, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable doing something outside of my comfort zone. Thank you, Mike!

My daughter did her first drum lesson with Mike and she loved it. She is a little on the shy side so I was a little worried. She was listening to his every word and it helped a lot that he also made her laugh multiple times. She told the rest of family what she learned and instantly was practicing on a pillow like he said. He was on time, friendly, and very welcoming. Great with kids. Very happy

About Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons

Mike Semerau and the instructors at Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons have a trick up their sleeve. In addition to in-person tutelage, they provide professional pre-recorded take-home videos of proper drumming techniques for students to refer to while practicing. This kind of constant visualization and repetitive watching is what the instructors claim makes their students so successful as they drill new techniques such as double bass, ostinatos, and stick control. During lessons, teachers also cover subjects such as soloing, learning a student’s favorite song, creating original beats and fills, and teaching yourself. Chicago's #1 Drum Lessons has a play-along machine stacked with more than 1,000 songs, all of which have no drum track so that students can provide their own percussion and experience the sensation of playing and keeping time with other instruments.
