My son Wade started with Eric several months ago with about a years worth of training from other instructors. He has progressed so much better technically in those few months with Eric. Wade has grown to truly enjoy playing so much more under Eric’s instruction and pushes himself more when practicing at home. We are truly grateful to have found Eric as an instructor!!

Eric Wagner's Drum Studio is a great place to get some slammin drummin lessons.This guy is a drummer king.I took few classes with him a couple of years back and they were always so much fun.He really knows how to make everybody comfortable and gradually increases the momentum of the lessons. Lot of college and school students go to him and his classes are always brimming with fun, laughter and music. Eric brings a lot of creativity and energy to his classes which creates a very positive and enriched learning atmosphere.

I have seen lot of kids becoming pros with just few lessons with Eric.He is also on the band for ' The Producers' Show.He conducts group and private lessons.He is very reasonable.He is always on the band for some orchestra group or the other.

Definitely sign up for his classes if you are in the neighborhood and want some bang in your life or if you want a good creative outlet for your kids.

Customer Testimonials

Eric is a consummate musician and teacher. He is loved by his students. His depth of knowledge is obvious, his discipline, hard work and affable nature make him an invaluable addition to our program. He is patient with the beginning students, demanding of the advanced students, and thoroughly dependable. He is a cut above what I have found to be the typical drum teacher. He is an excellent musician and is in demand by many groups and theaters in the area. Eric would be an asset to any situation. I recommend him without reservation.


Eric has provided drum lessons to my son for a number of years and he continues to do so. He demonstrated excellent communication skills with our son as was able to guide him into becoming one of the most accomplished drummers in a renown large school music program. Our son has been the drummer for the competitve Jazz band at Arlington High School plus a member of Marching Band and the top school band and orchestra.. That Jazz Machine won the top prize at the prestigious Berklee Jazz Festival in Boston, Mass in 2009 and our son won the Judge's Choice Award at the competition in 2008. Our son has received a number of recognitions and music program scholarships to camps and a Berklee Percussion Festival. Much of his success is owed to skills learned and "polished" while working with Eric Wagner. We have referred a number of other students to Eric over the years and the parents of these students have all expressed their appreciation for the referral and satisfaction with their experiences with Eric. I would highly recommend Eric Wagner.


Eric is an excellent teacher. He is well-versed in all musical styles and customizes his lessons based on the experience and goals of the student. I had no experience and he has helped me build a solid foundation.

Eric teaches students of all ages and skill levels. He has extensive technical knowledge and an encouraging style that motivates students to continue to improve. I highly recommend him.

Eric Wagner is a fantastic drum teacher. He really introduced me to everything that being a drummer had to offer. He got me reading music, playing all different styles, working on my coordination, interpreting lead sheets, and working on the most important thing as a drummer, your pocket. Also, he really helped me prepare for my audition to get into Berklee College of Music, where I have been studying drumset, composition, and production for the last 3 years. I definitely recommend Eric to anyone who is interested in really diving into the art of drumming!
