Testimonials & Stories

“I’ve been taking drum lessons with Jamie Dunleavey for about six months now, and she has zoomed me right along from complete and utter beginner to being able to play entire songs, and not to mention some pretty solid paradiddles and ratamacues. Jamie is a gem of a instructor—knowledgeable, easy to understand, laidback, patient, and Rush-obsessed (that’s how you know she’s a pro). I started taking drum lessons after my boyfriend gave me a few drum lessons with Jamie as a Christmas present, but have stayed on indefinitely as she is such an ace teacher, and the sessions are really a lot of fun to boot.” – Jaclyn

“Having taught myself to be a bad guitarist, I wanted to learn to play the drums properly. I asked Jamie if she could make me into a drummer, I was sceptical, but she insisted it could be done! After a couple of months of practising the rudiments and exercises I was given, I was already starting to believe her. Jamie knows what makes a good drummer and knows what you need to learn to get there. It’s simple really, listen to Jamie and be willing to practice and you’ll learn to play the drums!” – Alaster

“It was a super workshop in that you covered so many things and gave us both lots to think about….brains are buzzing still! Thank you so much for making us feel so at ease and for being kind and patient.” – Evelyn & Margot
