I started having drum lessons with Jaca after attending a Freer Ideas Drum Workshop. The deliberately inclusive nature of the workshop got me there even though it’s something I’d normally be too nervous to do. My lessons have been great: organised, fun and at just the right pace. Jaca is an excellent drum teacher – I’d not hesitate to recommend them!

Jaca is a professional and skilled drum teacher. I feel like the pace we’ve been going at and the areas we’ve covered have been just right for me, and I’m really happy with my progress. We do a good mix of working on technique and playing along to and working out songs, which I really enjoy. They’re very dedicated to their work, and put a lot of effort into making sure that they provide as much support to their students as they can. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

I absolutely love my weekly lessons with Jaca! As an older person learning an instrument for the first time it can be quite intimidating but Jaca is super patient and supportive, and also always comes prepared with stuff they think might interest you musically. They do a great mix of technique and helping you to learn on your own – proper DIY tutoring!
