kevin mendes drum lessons torontoAside from enjoying a career as a performer and session drummer, I also love teaching on the drums. I take great pride in helping to motivate and inspire drummers to learn and reach their goals. I teach lessons to students of all ages (6 years +) and all skill levels, from absolute beginners to experienced performing drummers looking for help to get their drumming to a higher level.

Hear what some of my students have to say about their lessons…

“Every lesson with Kevin is fun, interesting and I always learn something new. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher.”
Alex – (age 12)

“Kevin has given my son a solid foundation. Being a musician myself I know that he is being taught the right way.”
– Gary (Alex’s father)

“Kevin is cool, fun and I’ve learned a lot.”
– Kate (age 11)

“Kevin has done a great job teaching Kate on the drums. He’s patient, clear and challenges Kate to do her best. She’s always happy when she’s finished her lesson.”
– Michael (Kate’s Dad)

“Kevin is a kind and patient teacher; always supportive and positive. I always look forward to my lessons.”
– Mardi (age 61)


My studio is located near Bloor St. and Ossington Ave. in Toronto and is equipped with 2 drum kits, headphones, YouTube, iTunes and plenty of other resources to make every lesson a quality learning experience.
