"My son is LOVING his lessons at Hamburg Percussion! He is practicing without being reminded to practice most days and even practices more than the required minutes per week. He told me the other day that, "Before I started taking my drum lessons, I knew I liked music, but I never imagined that I could MAKE music like this!." So, thank you Tim and Hamburg Percussion. You have given my son the gift of music and he truly believes in himself and his abilities. You are a great teacher and an even better person who seems to know just what your students need. If anyone is looking for a drum instructor, I HIGHLY recommend calling or hopping online at Hamburg Percussion!". (Reprinted with permission from Facebook post October 5th, 2015)

"Though my daughter has only been taking lessons from Tim for a few months, I have seen dramatic improvement not only in her skill level, but in her passion for drumming. She absolutely loves to play and has asked on multiple occasions if she could "take drum lessons every day" because she has so much fun! I am so thankful a friend recommended Hamburg Percussion to me and I pass on that same enthusiastic recommendation!"
Frank Schreiner, Music Director (retired) West Shore School District
"Tim was a former drum student of mine and excellent leader. His personality and high musical ability is a perfect match for teaching young students. He will make the experience fun for the students and provide them with excellent musical skills!" "It is a pleasure being able to recommend Tim and is exciting for me to have another former student teaching young people. I have quite a few "kids" that are either band directors, marching band staff members, private teachers, college profs or music judges out there doing their thing and making a difference in young lives. It's humbling to know that I have reproduced myself in some small way many times over."
