"My drum lessons are often the motivation to make it through each week. My instructor is not just a teacher, he has become a friend and mentor as well. Drumming is a source of confidence and positive energy that applies to every aspect of my life."

-David, (age 16) Paso Robles

"I have 2 boys in the [Bucketeers] class and they both love it!  Thanks for a great program." 
-Kristine Maas, San Luis Obispo


"The Bucket Busters is the BEST THING that has ever happened to [my son]!  I cannot thank you, Steve and Micah enough for all of the support you have given [him] through the years. [He] has had several obstacles to overcome and has made progress and has come a long way. I know that he wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for his drumming – both lessons [at Music Motive] and Bucket Busters. Thank you!
Sincerely and from the heart,"
[Grateful Mom of a scholarship student] in San Luis Obispo

“I like the drum school because it is cool. Kids like cool. What they don’t realize is that they are learning music theory and lots more.”

-Bob Teaford (dad), San Luis Obispo


"I have been taking drum lessons for a little over a year now. I finally found an instrument that I enjoy playing, all thanks to Music Motive. I am so grateful for the music experience they've given me, and I want others to experience what I have." 
-Maddy Abroms, Age 15, San Luis Obispo

-Sonia Meena, Shell Beach


“Music Motive has built a great program. My boys have been taking lessons for less than a year and I can’t believe how they’ve become ‘real drummers’ already. Their teacher is the coolest, most sincere person. He really loves his students.”

"Since I started taking lessons at Music Motive it helped me find my passion for drums and made me want to do it for the rest of my life."

"The staff at Music Motive are all fabulous. [The teacher] is awesome and we love him. Runar has learned so much and drumming has become his life. Music is such an important factor in your child's life - it keeps them focused, well rounded and they get to rock out. The neighbors are very pleased with Runar's progress too!"

-Laura Samuel, Los Osos


"Brandon has made tremendous progress in his skills as a drummer. He has thoroughly enjoyed working with each of his instructors. They have all seemed to really take an interest in helping and encouraging him, and have given him an appreciation for many types of music. We're very pleased with his experience!"

-Carrie Sanders, Paso Robles


"Music Motive is an excellent place for children to learn a love for music. I have a son (8) and daughter (13) learning to play the drums there. Both are learning at their own pace in a style that fits their individual personalities. The teachers are knowledgeable, gracious, and great percussionist!"
