"Two years ago, my son Dylan had only a vague interest in music but agreed to try a few drum lessons with Jeremy. Thanks to Jeremyʼs patient and supportive instruction, Dylan has advanced to the point where he has enjoyed playing two different garage band concerts. I highly recommend Jeremy; he is an expert drummer who connects really well with kids."
"Jeremy Stacey, our son's drum teacher is a great talent himself, and possesses an advanced repertoire of skills and standards that he shares with his students. He builds a tremendous rapport with his pupils, and has taught our son a great deal. we highly recommend him as a music teacher."
