But I think that any young drummer starting out today should get himself a great teacher and learn all there is to know about the instrument that he wants to play.

If your child marches to a different beat, a different drummer, you might just have to go along with that music. Help them achieve what’s important to them.
— Sonia Sotomayor

Using music is an amazing way to increase attentiveness; the drums in particular, are a great way to get rid of any excess energy at the same time! Many world famous musicians have ADHD and have used this to their advantage! Go Mad Drumming can help you do the same**

…Lee was always prepared and tailored his teaching to needs of my son… It was heart-warming to witness how he engaged with my son and channeled his natural abilities. My son received a firm foundation in drumming from Lee. He learned to read notes from the very first lesson and this meant that when we moved away he had developed a thorough understanding of music and rhythm.

Lee has a natural ability to help children see their own progress. Combined with his formal qualifications, Lee is one of the most outstanding teachers parents and students can hope for.

-Dr. Leyla Tavernaro-Haidarian (mother of 6 year old student)

...my son aged 13 had no experience whatsoever in either reading music or drumming… It didn't take long before I saw, and heard, pretty good beats coming from my son's room.

On occasion I would quietly sit in on the lessons and watch Lee work his magic. His patience and ability to work in a teaching capacity was very apparent… My son still drums today, he can both read and write music, and we're so grateful for the knowledge Lee passed on.

-Raymond De Haas (father of 13 year old student)



I studied drumming with Lee while he was still living in South Africa. As a teacher Lee was always patient, understanding, encouraging and adaptive. He always brought a laid back, positive energy and never tried to rush through the lessons but rather took the time to make sure you left understanding what was taught that day so you could go home and practice it.

- Sandy Adler (adult student)

**DISCLAIMER: there is no guarantee, as every person positively diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has varying degrees of inattentiveness and learns in different ways; further to this, practise and a strict schedule developing into a routine is essential and is out of the hands of Go Mad Music once the lesson is over.
