Great Drum Teacher!

My son is 8 and had wanted to learn Drums. I found Konstantyn contact information while searching on googleIn first lesson itself me and my son made up our mind  we will continue with him. I see my son growing well in his drums , Konstantyn also pays a lot of attention in the Theory lessons that would make practically playing drum more better and understandable.

He inspired Danny!

We are very pleased with the way Konstantyn Napolov works with our son. He is a very professional teacher. Konstantyn inspired Danny to learn music, keep him motivated and helped him to revile his talents. Particularly Danny likes the individual approach of choosing musical compositions.

Ouders ook welkom in drumles!

Met veel geduld, passie, enthousiasme en uiterst positieve stemming weet Konstantyn de drumkunst, de juiste techniek en notenschrift over te brengen.
Daardoor ervaart Zane de drumles als plezierig en heeft de les positieve weerslag op zijn zelfvertrouwen. Hij zit nu in zijn tweede jaar, heeft veel geleerd en gaat steeds met plezier naar de drumles. Heel fijn dat ouder ook welkom is om de les van het kind bij te wonen in de mooie studio en zo de voortgang ook te kunnen volgen.

Above Expectations!

The kids were interested to learn to play music instrument and we have tried classic piano lessons. Lessons were boring and kids didn't want to attend any longer. We decided to try drum lessons with Konstantin it was above expectations. The lesson was interactive, presented with kids mind and it were not just drums. The kids also get to learn marimba which has note structure the same as on the piano. After few months kids also learned some body tapping. Drum lessons experience opened doors to complete new music world. Anna - Parent of Diamantia en Alexander
