"We have tried other drum teachers in town and none compare to Meshem. Well worth waiting for a spot to open up. My 14 year old looks forward to his lessons every week." - Heidi Wright
"Ryan is SUPER STOKED about the drums. When we were outside Dana asked him what he liked best and he said “I really like the way my teacher teaches. When I got frustrated he understood.” I was grateful to be able to see you in action, I really like your style. Thank you so much for reaching out, and thank you for having such a positive effect on Ryan during his first lesson." - Rick M
"My son has been taking lessons with Meshem for the past year. I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful instructor Meshem is. He is patient, kind, funny and really has a way with kids. Besides the drumming skills my son has also gained self confidence, his grades have improved and he has found something he is passionate about. I believe that Meshem's love of music and teaching has made a huge difference in my son's life. I would recommend Meshem to anyone!" - Jennifer D
"To anyone who is thinking of taking drum lessons from Meshem Jackson ..... DO IT!!!! I am a parent of one of his students and my son and I could not be happier with the instruction he gets from Meshem. Great teacher, great school, great program." - Adam Berejkoff
"I don't think I could have found a better instructor for my 8-year-old son. Meshem is intelligent, relaxed, talented, and funny. He has the unique ability to make the difficult very easy, especially for kids. Just an all-around great guy and friend!" - Cory C
"Meshem is an amazing artist and I am honored to have my son taking lessons with him. I have seen him in sessions with other students and he has such a great rapport with the kids. They trust him, take him seriously and think he is cool all at the same time! My son has ADHD and autistic like behavior which has caused him to be very behind in school. When no one else could get through to him Meshem did. I have seen so much growth in my son in the past year and he finally feels like he can be good at something. Thank you Meshem for helping my son feel good about himself!" - Tami Chapin
Update: "Guess what I was told at conferences? That Cameron is his best drummer and actually gave the teacher goosebumps the other day while playing. Hmmmm wonder how he got so good?" - Tami Chapin
"I am so impressed with Daltons growth over the last 3 months. He has learned more from you than he did over the last two years with his other teacher. He is excited to practice and go to lessons. He loves it." -- Kimmy Sue
"Meshem is a very skilled drummer who is consistent in his teaching and always offers challenges for my daughter with every lesson. I appreciate that he doesn't rush her into the new lessons and will instead goes at her "pace" so that she can learn at her own speed without feeling pressured." - Jennifer Clark, mother of drum student.
