Drum Lessons Los Angeles - Red Pelican Music - Neil


I would give Red Pelican 6 stars if I could. Absolutely wonderful experience! 3 mins into my first lesson, Neil hopped on the drum set to show me a couple things and blew me away. He is an incredibly talented drummer, patient, and has the ability to create a tailored learning experience for his students.

I got drum lessons for my brother, who has special needs, and Neil was very patient, super nice, and knowledgeable. . . My brother had a blast!

I had so much fun, learned so much – Neil really structured the lessons around what would be most useful to me as a songwriter/producer…

Neil grew up in Cape Town, and began performing professionally at the age of 15.  He spent his teenage years playing with many famous South African artists.  Neil studied music at the University of Cape Town, and then moved to Los Angeles to study drums at Hollywood’s Musician’s Institute.

Neil’s groups have opened for Tom Petty, Styx, Paul Simon, and Brian Wilson, and you can hear his drumming on TV shows such as Smallville and Felicity.  Recently, Neil was the house drummer on “The Fran Drescher Show,” where he enjoyed performing with Shelia E, Dan Aykroyd and Wayne Brady.

Above all else, Neil loves teaching drums!   His vast experience and fun style have made him one of Los Angeles’ most popular drum instructors.

Neil was a featured judge in the Guitar Center Drum-Off, and endorses DW Drums, Pro-mark sticks, Remo Drum Heads, Zildjian Cymbals and Gator Cases.
