Each lesson is tailored to the unique needs and interests of the student, so no one lesson is exactly the same.

Therefore, students never receive material that doesn’t directly help them in their unique musical journey.

His greatest strength is his ability to bring out the inner creativity of each student and transform the learning process of music into a real pleasure! 

Elijah Has studied drum-set extensively with master teachers such as Bruce Becker (L.A.)  Chris Mcann, Wali Muhammad, Max Sansalone and Jacob Kaye.

This is our second year with Elijah as a drum teacher. He teaches in an engaging way - working with new songs that are the flavour of the week. Leo thinks Elijah is a cool guy who teaches music in a fun way which makes it easier to learn.

Having ambitious goals when it comes to drumming, it's important to find the right teacher to reach these objectives. Elijah is the right person who I believe can get me there. There's progress in each lesson and it's a real pleasure learning through him. I look forward to each new practice. It's just fun!
