"Gene has been my drum instructor for the past 5 years. I came to Gene as an adult with no musical knowledge whatsoever. I was interested in drumming as more of a pastime and with my busy schedule, I needed an instructor that could be flexible with regards to lessons. Gene is that instructor. With much patience and enthusiasm, Gene customizes the music and lessons according to my skill level and my schedule, while at the same time providing challenges to keep the learning process going. Individuals from all levels will be able to appreciate Gene’s broad-based abilities. It is evident in his teaching techniques that he is passionate about what he does. There is nothing like learning how to play the drums from a master musician as Gene is an incredibly accomplished, professional drummer. I am grateful for everything Gene has taught me regarding drumming, and I highly recommend him as one of the best drum instructors in the area." -Linda B., Nov. 15, 2015

"My son Chris has been a student of Gene's for almost 10 yrs. In that time Chris went from banging on the drums to playing the drums. Chris can read the music he is playing and pays close attention to the time signatures from the other music he listens to. Gene's vast experience in the music business gave him the ability to give great advise when Chris started playing in bands. He knows what it is like to be in the studio and how to request specific requirements from the sound engineers both in the studio and at live shows. He has come to see him play live and listened to recordings, always providing helpful complements and critics. Gene has also been a tremendous help when it came to purchasing drums, cymbals and hardware, letting us know the costs and what do do when something breaks, how to repair or send back to manufacturer. Gene is a great teacher, he's patent, an exceptional drummer in many styles, has a great sense of humor and has been there on time for our weekly lessons. We were very lucky to have had Gene recommended to us years ago and would happily recommend him for a student of any age. Thanks for all the help, Gene!" John Smith - Nov.29, 2015
