Styles change, but the building blocks of music are forever. We can help you build a solid foundation and follow your own path. Learn from a certified pro - instructor Ryan Brown has a BAMus in jazz drumming and has spent the last decade teaching up to 50 lessons a week while playing with touring, recording indie bands and leading his own solo projects.

Maybe it's a single session, maybe a month. Maybe a lesson every week until one of us croaks. We'll focus on your unique goals. Books and videos are great resources, but everyone's different; only you know why you got into music and where you're headed. We'll show you which 3 pages you need and how to steal licks like a pro. This is not a cookie-cutter thing. You're not a cookie. We eat cookies for breakfast.

Lessons available by the hour and half-hour. If you've got drums and a space in the Halifax area, we can even come to you. Contact us or book online to arrange.

Our son took drum lessons from Ryan for a few years . He absolutely loved Ryan’s teaching methods. Ryan was super informative and fun! He was so easy to talk to and to ask questions to, which is just one of many great assets that Ryan demonstrated with our son. He would teach our son multiple beats, songs and all the essentials of drumming.

After seeing our son come home so excited from lessons with Ryan, my husband and I decided to take guitar lessons from Ryan. As it was with our son, it was the same for us, we had so much fun learning from Ryan and we appreciated his kind and patient personality .

All of us would highly recommend Ryan for drums or guitar!
