Kathleen Reynolds - In regards to her sessions at DK Drums Academy
"After taking a 10+ year break, getting back on the kit seemed very intimidating, until I began private lessons with Dan Kerby. His years of expertise not only playing but teaching the drums from beginners to professionals meant he could adapting his teaching style to help me get back into it easily and quickly. Within a handful of lessons I was playing full songs again. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!"

Dan’s teaching style is unlike anything I have experienced before, he is patient, encouraging and genuinely interested in your success! I couldn’t believe how instantly comfortable classes were and quickly I picked it up!”
