''My son has taken drum lessons here for over a year. Staff, including his instructor, are awesome. My son started with zero drum experience and after a year is playing several songs. His teacher is there to help process it through the frustration, motivate him to keep trying, and has successfully taught him many songs of his interest. They have an incentive program that keep students engaged and on track for learning songs. He has also performed in multiple recitals that they put on, which are an awesome experience for him to demonstrate all of his hard work. My son looks forward to coming here every week. That has a lot to do with effective instructors.

Our son has been taking drumming lessons at Vancouver Music Academy for several years and really enjoys it. His instructor, Gus, makes it fun by teaching songs that our son knows and is excited to learn. Gus is patient and always encouraging! We highly recommend Vancouver Music Academy

This place is amazing! My daughter looks so forward to her lessons with Dylan. We live in the area and have been wanting to try for a couple years. So happy we finally did, great fit! They do such an awesome reaching out too.
