A little more than a year ago, I was faced with the challenge of finding a new drum teacher. I had been taking lessons for several years, but my previous instructor told me that he could no longer teach me and that I should find a more advanced teacher. My searching began near my home in Oak Park, but none of the local teachers matched the skill level I was at. Eventually my searching led me to Sol. After one lesson, I knew that Sol was the teacher for me. I enjoy every lesson, and I always find myself challenged by the assignments that Sol gives me. With a broad range of topics covered, the lessons never feel repetitive. From dynamics, to grooves, to fills, and even the occasional break to eat one of Sol’s homemade cupcakes, each lesson is more enjoyable than the last. Sol’s knowledge and passion for music are clearly present in every lesson, and he is a great guy. Even though he has a funny accent, if you’re looking for a great teacher, look no further than Sol Garnier.
