“I’m in town for the next two weeks practicing for my next gig! Take a drum lesson with me at one of the coolest places to rehearse in Chicago; the Music Garage Chicago. The Music Garage is at a great convenient location because it’s right next to Vic’s Drum Shop. Grab a lesson from me and buy some cool gear!” ~Paul Wandtke

Paul understands that each and every one of his students are unique, and has their own goals and passions for drumming.
