7DrumCity: what do users think?


P T: Perfect little studio for shedding on your own. Big rooms are great for bands and there are also solo piano rehearsal rooms as well. All of the rooms are fully equipped with top of the line gear and all of the gear is well maintained. If a problem arises with the house gear, the staff will replace it quickly and efficiently. I witnessed this first hand. As a working drummer of almost 30 years, I love the fact that I do not have to bring any gear aside from my stick bag. You can adjust all of the kits to your specifications so that maximum playability can be obtained. The rooms are soundproofed so well that you can play as loud as you want and make as many mistakes as needed without disrupting other drummers/musicians and bands doing their thing. Each solo practice room comes with a small amp/pa combo for light jamming ,a music stand(for my charts), and finally and most important point of all, the prices cannot be beat. The happy hour special is a life saver. A special place indeed.
Response: Thanks so much PT! We love having you here.

JR Franks: 7DC is THE place to be if you’re a musician in the DMV. This space has it all: Ample rehearsal space, lessons with seasoned local musicians, open jam events, Flashband, and now full-on shows with the opening of The Pocket. Miles (the owner) has poured his time and energy into making 7DC one of the most welcoming environments in the local scene. You’re guaranteed to meet lots of really cool people no matter your reason for coming.

Angela Rivera: I just recently became a student at 7DrumCity learning how to play the drums and it's been a blast so far! My onboarding process was smooth, I discussed what I was looking for and my interests with Miles. I was paired with Isabelle who is awesome! This is my first experience learning a new instrument as an adult and I'm very impressed with the location, clean practice rooms with great equipment, COVID precautions they are taking seriously and people. The prices are also reasonable and they have many membership options for various budget ranges. Jasmine and Eman were at the front desk during my first visit and made me feel very welcome as well as gave me a thorough tour. I look forward to meeting more people in this great community!
Response: Aww, thanks Angela!! It was great meeting you virtually -- looking forward to more exciting things to come back to life as Covid eases back.

Isaac Natter: 7 Drum City is a treasure! They have *amazing* teachers that are helping my son develop a genuine love of music, and serve as mentors and role models, as well as teachers. Moreover, 7 Drum City has a great, chill vibe, with friendly, helpful staff, and is a fantastic place to practice (and more than just drums) or hang out and talk music. 7 Drum City is the best place in DC to learn an instrument, but also an integral part of the DC music scene. We're lucky to have 7 Drum City!
Response: Thanks Isaac! We love having you here

Brian Ossip: 7DL is the best. My band has been practicing there for over a year, and we've had nothing but absolutely awesome experiences. All of the available spaces and studios sound great and have top of the line equipment, and the staff that works there is great. On top of it all, Miles, the owner, does an amazing job of promoting and supporting the local music scenes. We've met and become friends with a lot of great bands and musicians through our association with 7 Drum Lessons.

John Folstrom: I have been practicing and taking lessons at 7DL for about six months now and I have been incredibly happy with my experience. The quality of lessons is great with teachers who not only know their stuff, but know how to transfer that knowledge to their students in an effective way. The staff is helpful and laid back. The variety of practice spaces is awesome and allows one to practice solo or jam with other musicians. Overall this is a fantastic stop to learn drums, practice drums or jam out.

Dan Villar: I've been taking lessons here for a little more than a month. The lessons are tailored to what the student wants to learn and so far with John I have been working on a nice mix of rudiments, fundamentals and rock beats and fills. I feel like I've progressed a lot in the time I've been here. All the teachers I've met are obviously passionate about their music and invested in making it a great experience for the student. The atmosphere is very welcoming and it really makes the lessons a lot of fun - every week I look forward to showing up a little early so I can hang out for a bit before the lesson starts. The place has a real feel of community for anyone interested in music and it makes coming in to practice something always look forward to. One of the most unique parts of the studio is the ability for students to reserve (free and easily online) practice space on a full drum set, which is nice if you don't have your own. Since the place is so welcoming I never hesitate to reserve a space and I actually look forward to coming in for practice outside my scheduled lesson. I've tried taking lessons from home, going out to an instructor and through music stores before, for both drums and guitar, and my experience here has been heads and shoulders above any other. I highly recommend 7DrumLessons Drum Studio for anyone considering taking drum lessons, it's been well worth the price of admission for me. - Dan

Carlos Vizcarra: I've used 7DL both to rent practice space and as a student on drums. The practice space component is great- it is so difficult to find anyplace in DC and not only are there drum kits but also PAs and soundboards in the rooms. The lessons are excellent- the instructors are not only amazing drummers but also good, patient teachers that work well with a wide variety of students, from kids to adults, in all genres that you might want to learn.

Hilary March: I've been taking drum lessons from Miles for almost 2 years now. Miles is a great drum instructor, and I'm really excited about this awesome new studio! I didn't know a ride cymbal from a high hat when I started, but Miles has ably taught me the basics - technique, rudiments, etc. - as well as how to play a bunch of awesome songs. Miles is very positive and encouraging and is very dedicated to helping his students learn and improve.

Ariel Davis: The coolest, chillest, most happening-est music studios to meet local musicians and practice in DC! Every time I bring a friend by, their jaws seriously drop. The team that works there (led by Miles Ryan), is super helpful, cordial, friendly, and make you feel right at home. I took drum lessons during the summer with John Heinze, who plays in a bunch of different bands throughout the city and was one of the most patient and kind teachers I've ever met for a beginner like me. It is one of the best music studios in DC, and every room is sound proof. Definitely recommend!

Kate Christopherson: Our child is thrilled going to DC School of Rock. Now he wants to go every day. The attention that he gets is unbelievable. Thank you so much to Chris and his team for delivering marvelous experience for our kids. Keep up the great work!

Juan Pablo Risso: Beware! While the program might be interesting, the Cleveland Park location is poorly run and it will bring you more headaches than benefits.

Dudley's B Sharp Academy: what do users think?


VJ Kapur: Daryl has been teaching my child piano since she was 4 and has done a great job of keeping her attention throughout their 30-minute lessons. He indulges her stories/distractions just enough, while keeping her on task. He has many exercises for her level of comprehension/dexterity, and covers the instrument, basics of music theory and notation, and other topics in an engaging way. I highly recommend to folks, especially ones who think their 3- or 4-year-old isn't ready for lessons!

Normajean Freeland: Having enrolled in Dudley's B Sharp Academy and having Mr. Daryl Dudley as my teacher has been enlightening and refreshing. He shows that he wants you to succeed. I am so happy I enrolled in the Academy and look forward to my weekly sessions. I recommend the Academy whenever someone expresses an interest in playing a musical instrument.

Lisa Jamison: A great learning experience! Being a beginner piano student, the training I received from Mr. Dudley was great especially since I didn’t know my way around the piano. He is very patient and thorough. I definitely would recommend this studio for all your musical ambitions!

fatima khambaty: Mr Dudley is patient and meets you right where you are- even as an adult student . He was able to assess me right away and we jumped right back (after my break of 25 years) into piano Lessons. He understands even though I have no jazz background how to get me to start thinking differently from my classical training. Honestly- he makes learning fun, easy and less daunting ! Thank you !

Lamia Matta: My 5-year old daughter loved taking ukulele classes with Mr. Dudley. After only a few classes, she became very enthusiastic about playing music. The classes also gave her a lot of confidence. Mr. Dudley is super kind and has a very very nice manner. I highly highly recommend the school.

HARVEY Harris: He is an excellent teacher and my 8y/o son has learned so much in a short time. He gets right down to business, and he allows him to advance at his own pace. My son looks forward to piano lessons every week. I would recommend him to anyone; a true christian demeanor on top of it all.

Bruce Britton: Working with Coach Dudley has been an amazing experience, He is very encouraging and I like that he pushes you put of your comfort zone in order for you to grow as a vocalist. I have worked with him and seen improvement as a singer. I definitely would recommend taking up his classes to anyone!

Natasha: Mr Dudley is great! My kiddos (ages 5&3) love taking lessons with him. I especially appreciate his approach in teaching younger kids.

kara taylor: Amazing, amazing, amazing. One lesson and I saw my daughter shine! She is autistic with add and Darryl was so patient with her. I am a thankful and proud mom.

Maryland: I went to this academy for voice lessons to build up my vocal range + to learn breathing techniques. I also took key board lessons online to help pass the time during pandemic lock down. Bro Dudley is a natural for pulling out talents that you didn't know you had. He builds up your confidence. "Come on you can do it I have confidence in you". He is very patient and a professional musician of which he loves to share his musical talents. Dudley is a great guy and a man of faith. I would highly recommend Dudley B Sharp Academy. D Whte

East Coast Drums & Practice Spaces: what do users think?


Diane Yates: From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with David's smile and helpful information. I told him my budget and he got me just the beginner set I wanted. Great price. Great quality. What a wonderful place...full of beautiful, quality drums! I highly recommend East Coast Drums and can't wait to get skilled enough to buy my UPGRADE soon. Thanks David and East Coast Drum crew!

Jeffrey Arevalo: World class drum shop. David was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to get me what I needed in time for the tour. Highly recommended. Will do more business in the near future.

Josh Lipicky: David is the friendliest and most helpful store owner from which I've ever had the pleasure of buying drums and equipment. Right off the Beltway, too! When I next get something for the kits, it'll be from him.
Response: We are glad you enjoyed your visit. Happy Drumming, Josh.

BVDRUMStreams: David and Laurie/Lori (apologies if I spelled wrong) are wonderful and knowledgeable. If you love drums they are going to love you. They show their love and passion to those who have that spark. They are fair with their pricing and will work with you to get you what you need. I have always believed in shopping and buying local. Places like theirs are becoming harder and harder to find. If you love drums and good people, please give them a shot at your business, you will not be disappointed!

Sherell Martin: The man and woman working at this place that greet you at the door are very pleasant. They treat you well, and give you instruments and accesories for a good price. I never had a bad experience there. I love it! Mr. David is a great guy.

Bone Reaper Full Circle: Very knowledgeable and relaxed compared to most music stores where the goal is to get a sale and get the customer out the door. Not the case here they have everything full scale to meet your budget needs along with musical goals and workshops to make sure you will advance as an artist.

Donna Dugan: Friendly staff, inventory is... the best in the DMV. Need anything from a whole kit, foot pedal, snare to a cowbell (never enough cowbell) they will have it in stock or can get it for you. Wall of cymbals, stands for everything, new and used. Need practice/rehearsal space, they have that also, next door to the shop.

byron Bussey: This establishment is a melting pot of everything any drummer/musician could need, espesially connections. The comradery makes it a hub in the giging community. The practice rooms are awsome very well stocked,and you never know whos listening.
Response: Thank you sir, we are thrilled you enjoyed your visit and we will continue to improve our services.

James Greene: There service is great very friendly and knowledgeable about equipment that they sell there.

Russell Lasner: Unbelievable selection of drums, cymbal, anything needed and great prices.

School of Rock: what do users think?


Katie White: School of Rock has been a transformative experience for our son. The week of camp last summer instilled a confidence in him that has been further nurtured by Rock 101 and weekly drum lessons. Rose, Brooks, Dylan, and the whole team help to create a wonderful environment where kids feel comfortable and their passion for music thrives. Thank you.
Response: Katie - thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We love having you all as part of our community. Rock on!

Carrie Hutchison: SOR has been a wonderful community for my young rocker! I'm constantly impressed by their performances, and their support of each other.
Response: Thank you Carrie! We love having you all as part of our SOR fam!

Karen Lopez: The staff here are lovely. They were very friendly, encouraging and kind. My niece absolutely loved her time here. Watching her get excited about music was amazing. Though she is currently not taking classes anymore, I hope she’ll be able to in the future because watching her here was magic!
Response: Thank you so much Karen!

Carissa Marino: My son has had a wonderful experience playing the electric guitar at camps and in private lessons @ SoR Silver Spring. The instructors work to create a positive, collaborative and encouraging environment for the kids. The kids have the opportunity to perform together at public venues and it's always so inspiring to watch them.
Response: Carissa this is so wonderful to hear! We love what we do and appreciate your kind words.

Phil Corriveau: Signing my son up for the School of Rock Silver Spring when he was 10 has been one of the best moves we have made. I think what makes the School of Rock program so attractive to many students and parents is that it is performance-based. In addition to regular lessons, students have wonderful opportunities to rehearse as a band and play shows at public venues. This way, they not only learn how to play an instrument, but how to PERFORM. And they have fun doing it. I also like the fact that no matter your child's level of experience when starting out at the School of Rock, there is a learning track to give them what they need to succeed at their instrument of choice. From the Rock 101 program to the Performance Program to the advanced House Band program, the instructors and director offer up a diverse music catalog to push students' skills to the next level. Most importantly, the staff is what makes the School of Rock Silver Spring so good. I can honestly say that all of the staff are passionate and care about what they do, and want to get the most out of the students in a positive, encouraging manner. As a parent, I have had the privilege of seeing the results...how many students have rapidly evolved from under-confident musicians to poised and skilled performers who take command of the stage. It's been nearly three years since my son started at the School of Rock Silver Spring and he has never looked back!

Elda Cordone: If you have seen the movie School of Rock with Jack Black, then you know how cool it is for kids to study rock music. This school has been a great investment for my sons in their development, both musically and socially. They have learned so much and have so much fun. They have gained new found discipline through practice, confidence as well as new friends that will last a lifetime. Studies have shown that music education directly correlates with academic success.Since joining in the last two years, my sons (ages 10 and 17) have performed at The Fillmore, at the Fountain in Silver Spring, and many other venues. School of Rock is their second home. Everyone, from the owners to the school director, music teachers, and staff is awesome!
Response: Thank you Elda!

Eric Mendelsohn: The easy going, rock n roll attitude is fun and welcoming. The classes for kids seem great. Though I haven’t been able to get my kids interested, I know of families with several musicians enrolled which I’m sure reinforces the learning and enthusiasm — and demonstrates the lure of SoR.

Sharon Sellers: Who doesn't want to be in a rock band?? It is a great program for kids, teaching not only music but confidence. The directors are always awesome - enthusiastic, professional and talented. I've had two kids do SOR and highly praise the school.
Response: Thank you for this lovely review! We have loved having your girls in our program and are so glad we have been a part of their growing up years.

Heather Shelton: I feel very lucky that my son is a part of the School of Rock Silver Spring program. My son is 10 years old, and he is rock drumming on stages in front of audiences (wow!). Have you checked out the YouTube videos? My son started drumming lessons at 7 and joined SOR at 8. The environment is very authentic and nurturing for young rock music-oriented kids. In the beginning, I had to encourage him to practice. And now, he sits down at his drum kit twice a day to practice, on his own initiative. He's learning so much more than I can probably even imagine. Plus, there's the #cool factor. If you're considering this program, I highly encourage you to come into the studio on Colesville to meet the managers and instructors. Tell them Heather referred you, and maybe I'll get a free t-shirt!?!
Response: Hey Heather, Thanks so much for the kind review!

Nicholas Michalopoulos: Great school with tons of opportunities for kids to get better at music in so many different ways.
Response: Thank you so much for this amazing review! We love having you all in our school and watching A grow so much over the years.

School of Rock: what do users think?


A.J. Nowaczyk: My son did a week long camp over the summer. He was seven, and really enjoyed it. They did a concert at Jammin’ Java that was really fun, and impressive at the end. They did Burning Down The House, Electric Funeral, and It’s A Long Way To The Top. It was great seeing him sing, drum, and play guitar. So crazy they put it all together in a week. I’d recommend it at least once, though he’ll probably do it again.
Response: A.J. this means the world to us! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and we hope to see him next summer or in one of our year-around programs. D rocks!

John Yiasemides: Individualized instruction as well as group playing opportunities makes this a terrific program for any child who wants to become a performer, or just a better musician. Small-group settings allows for a band-experience without the individuals getting lost in a big-school program, which gives them more opportunity to grow and express themselves. This program puts it all together: lessons lead to group-playing which leads to performances. Safe, fun environment is created for students of music. Administration here is always more organized than I am, which I am thankful for!
Response: John we so appreciate your taking the time to post this wonderful review! We love what we do and thank you for putting your trust in us.

K Cheng: School of Rock in Vienna is terrific. My child loves doing both the weekly classes as well as the camps. Staff is super supportive and teachers are excellent in their skill and also with their children. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you so much! We are delighted you are having a great School of Rock experience.

Elizabeth B: So organized! Brian is incredible. Also instructors seem well-vetted, I have sense that they take care with choosing teachers, they pay close attn to safety (and not just in terms of COVID -- also things like not emailing kids directly, Facebook link is through parents, etc.). I love how they give kids leadership opportunities (e.g. interning in the summer). And they give kids choice (e.g. in song selection, instruments). We have rarely had to change a lesson time, but when we have, they are SO helpful. Honestly, can't say enough good about SoR Vienna!!!

Michael Fazen: This is a wonderful program for children to not only learn awesome music skills but also many life lessons. The group rehearsals and seasonal live performances teach our son the commitment of being part of a team. He has been with School of Rock for almost 3 years, and we enjoy seeing him grow not only as a musician but also as a person. Even during the challenging pandemic times, School of Rock did a great job adjusting to the situation to continue the program without any interruptions. We love this program and will continue it for many years.
Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience. It's been a pleasure having Michael in our program and watching him grow!

Amy Wenger: Couldn’t be more impressed with how much my 7 year old has learned in a year at School of Rock. He LOVES going, the teachers and staff are wonderful, and his guitar playing... so much more than I would have expected at this age! They are also doing a top notch job with safety precautions during the pandemic. So glad to be a part of S of R Vienna:)
Response: Amy thank you so much for this lovely review - we appreciate it so much!

Ginger Hierl: Gives kids experience playing with a band in a fun atmosphere. All of the directors and instructors are awesome! My daughter's guitar playing, singing, and confidence on stage have all developed impressively at the School of Rock and she has lots of fun there.
Response: Ginger thank you so much for taking the time to write this - we appreciate it!

Rachna Heizer: This place is AMAZING! The teachers are great - you can tell they truly love music and sharing their love of music to other kids. My son has had several teachers there (he plays three instruments and sings) and every single one is great. They are super patient with kids and great at working with a variety of kids and personalities and really getting the best out of each kid. This place is like a second home to my son and they have gone above and beyond to make him comfortable and successful. On top of that, they are great music teachers that not only teach the kids how to play music but how to be in a band together. It is one of the few programs that works hard to give kids many performance opportunities; recognizing that kids are more likely to learn and stay motivated if they get a chance to perform. My son has done the performance band program and the house band program and loves going to rehearsals, rocking out with his buddies and loves loves loves the performances. It has done a ton for his musical ability AND his confidence. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! The owners are great; really get the kids and are willing to work with everyone. The staff is open and accommodating and you can tell they love what they do. My son is not an athlete but he is a musician and it is great to find a place he truly gets to be a musician and perform just like his soccer playing friends get to have their moment to shine. My children have participated in numerous after school activities and this is by far one of the best things they have done. Teaches teamwork, self confidence, and music!
Response: Thank you Rachna for all your support!

MacGregor Nicholson: My son has participated in the performance program for six years. He has had a wonderful experience and has grown in confidence, musicianship and discipline. It's also FUN and he has made many great friends there. The instructors and owners really care about the students and obviously love what they are doing. There is great interaction between more experienced and novice students. As a parent, it has been rewarding to see my son, and his many bandmates, blossom from shy kids to rockers. Do it!
