My son does online lessons with Aaron. At first, I was REALLY skeptical that online lessons would work for the drums, but we got it setup in no time and my son is really enjoying his lessons. The prices were very reasonable and he's a very patient teacher! I'm even thinking of taking lessons myself for the piano.
Aaron is an experienced professional that always brings it at showtime. He is an efficient sight reader and has a great ear. He can handle any style. Most of all, he is a great guy to work with.
Aaron is a skilled drummer with a creative flair. Always aiming at pleasing his band leaders and audience, he is a consummate professional. Aaron has a wide range of abilities from reading to playing odd time signatures, and has chops but uses them wisely to enhance the music.
Response from Steady In Time:
Thank you for your review. You have been a great friend and mentor these last nine years. I wouldn't be teaching music full time now had you not given me the encouragement I needed. Playing with you has always been a privilege. I look forward to our next gig.
