Teaching Info

Our lessons are custom-designed to meet the wants and needs of our students. While we can offer assistance with preparing for Grading Examinations and NCEA Assessments, our main focus is on an all-round approach with developing our beginner musicians into expert instrumentalists.

The free first introductory session for new students is designed to ensure that both we (as teachers) and our students are both aware of the direction that needs to be taken in regards to the education/tuition provided. This is a no-obligation session, and payments for the second lesson will not be due until the day of the second lesson.

Regardless of whether our students are learning a new instrument for fun, or if there are more serious ambitions in mind, we strive to ensure that the expectations of our students are met.

If you have any special requests or questions about specific course material that we provide, please feel free to contact us via the details aforementioned in this listing.

"I'm happy that I've learned to play the drums - I know what everything is and that I've learned new beats each week!"


"I think that the way the the material has been presented is really good and that it's good that Logan was patient and genuine."


"I've always found it hard to learn from others and always struggled with school and learning in general but Logan did an excellent job in teaching me. I don't know what Logan does differently to others, but whatever he does, he should just keep doing it. I really liked his casual and carefree attitude in teaching. Logan made it feel like nothing was a hassle or an issue."


"I like that there's a relaxed atmosphere, open discussions about drumming, that Logan answered my many questions. Good to be able to break down the songs as well (during lessons)!"
