Sol Garnier has been my drum instructor for three years. I had started playing drums about a year before seeing Sol's advertisement. Sol has been a great influence on me as both a drummer and as a musicain. I had played the guitar for about 2 years before deciding to start playing the drums. Sol's experience and talent make him a great teacher. He is more than just a drum instructor; Sol is a music instructor. He stresses that his sturdents should strive to be musicains rather than just drummers. This novel viewpoint has helped me mature as a guitarist as well as a drummer. It has helped me tremendously when I play music with other people and i am often complemented on my musical input as well as my drumming skills.

I discovered Sol's ad in the Chicago Reader and was impressed by his credentials and affiliation with Manu Katche of Sting. My first lesson was utter joy. Seeing my eyes light up on the drum set - and the prospect of hitting the drums - he let me "have at it" in no time at all. I think that within five minutes of the lesson, I had already learned my first "rock beat." Perhaps more importantly on that first day, he asked questions, and then he listened. "Why do you want to be here? What are your goals" I look forward to our weekly lessons because they are a mix of fun, hard work, learning, and pure and simple ejoyment. Sol teaches the whole person. He listens, and ostensibly cares.

I tried other drum instructors in Chicago but other companies cannot beat the personal attention and hands-on experience from Sol Garnier. I've been drumming with Sol for 3 yaers. Sol is a great instructor and all around cool guy with a ton of experience and interesting stories from his years of experience drumming in other countries.
