My 13 year old son, Danny, has been taking lessons from Mark for about three months now. He has been playing drums for several years, but the progress that he has made since he started with Mark has been leaps and bounds above his former instruction. Mark is of course an amazing drummer, but he is also a first rate instructor. He has the skills, techniques and organization to provide an exceptional learning experience for his students. That said, it is Mark’s personality that makes the lessons special. He is warm, friendly, funny and kind, which let Danny feel immediately at ease and concentrate on the music. We highly recommend Mark Henderson Drum Lessons!

Mark has been teaching my son for the past 6 months. He is patient and grounded in his approach which helps my son to stay focused. I can see my son's sense of accomplishment when he leaves his lessons. I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants to start their child on the drums.
