"Jacob is an excellent teacher, whose passion and knowledge over the last two years has taken me from basic drum concepts all the way to advanced studies in the Moeller method. His instruction provides solid fundamentals in drumming; from reading and coordinated independence to improving your "chops". It's always kept fun though with the application of these fundamentals to many different music styles such as rock, jazz, latin, or anything else you would want to try. With Jacob's instruction, along with hard work and practice, I have grown in leaps and bounds as a drummer." Matthew Gallaugher Ph.D.
