Every once in a while, a student comes along who is really hungry to improve in his/her craft and become a better musician. He or she sees Music as a career and not merely a hobby. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with viewing Music as a hobby, but Music is so much more…It’s life…
Gabriel is one such student. He listens, he practices his butt off, and he applies what he learns effectively.
So, a big congratulations to you, Gabriel. You deserve this fantastic result.
Gabriel is currently studying for a diploma in music and audio technology at the Singapore Polytechnic. He also has his own youtube channel and soundcloud page:

Here’s another heartwarming and encouraging testimonial I got from Benjamin, who’s been learning drums for about a year now.
” I would say that drum lessons with Jason was never really just about learning a music instrument. Over the past 1 year, besides just learning a basic drum groove, I have learnt music appreciation, music history and the things you can achieve with passion and hard work.
I have always enjoyed the rich history of music and drumming that Jason is able to explain to make music applicable. Most of time with these understanding, you get soak into the music better and will understand why and how the technical skills needed to be applied for you to groove better. Jason can be quite straightforward about practising, and that part may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But to be fair we all know that hard work plays a huge part in success.
Lastly, Jason’s passion for drums and music is so contagious that makes you want to learn more and find out more. He also consistently advocating that if it is achievable for him so can YOU!”
I wish him all the very best in his life’s endeavours and I also congratulate him on getting married.
There was a girl who decided to give her boyfriend a 2nd year anniversary present by purchasing a 2 hour drum lesson for him out her own pocket. Here’s her boyfriend’s review of the lesson:
“Just one lesson with Jason was enough to show how passionate he is in drumming and music as a whole.
A truly dedicated trainer, Jason spares no effort in bestowing the rudiments and fundamentals of drumming upon his student.
I highly recommend Jason as a trainer. His passion is inspiring and will kindle the love of drumming in his students.
