  • I highly recommend Stages!!!! My son has been doing virtual drum lessons with Taso for a few months and today we switched to in-person. The facility is amazing, as is the staff! Most importantly, my son is having a blast and learning a ton!! Taso is an incredibly talented teacher!
  • The band has made me a better musician because I have had to learn to play shuffles, swing and even a Latin beat. Taso has been invaluable to me as a teacher and friend as well. His work book has been what has gotten me this far. I now actually enjoy playing the different types of beats and I am looking forward to learning even more.
