My son had drum lessons with Kristian starting in elementary school and continuing until he started university. Kristian was a great teacher — he was unfailingly positive and enthusiastic. Kristian’s passion for music was very evident. We were able to attend some of the concerts given by Kristian’s jazz trio, and this was very inspiring. All in all, it was a great experience for my son.

Kristian has been my drum teacher for 1 1/2 years. He is patient and listens well. He has an understanding of how to teach to keep you motivated. I would rate him as 10/10. He teaches in my home and is always punctual. If I need to reschedule a session he is most accommodating.

Kristian has been an excellent teacher for my son, who is in his 3rd year of lessons with him. He is patient, kind, and makes drums a lot of fun for my son, who always looks forward to going to his lessons. He has also helped to support my son with his school band learning, which is much appreciated.

My son has been taking lessons with Kristian for a little over a year and has made great progress. Kristian is a very patient teacher who keeps my son interested in drums while also gently but effectively emphasizing the basics.

I began studying drums with Kristian as an adult. With Kristian’s patience, adaptability and good humour, I have progressed beyond my expectations. While I have heard from others how great he is with kids, I know that it takes a special kind of teacher to know when to push an adult and when to cut them a bit of slack as the demands of adult life interfere with practicing! He has kept me motivated, which is saying a lot given my busy and distracting schedule.
