“I have had the pleasure of taking these workshops for the past 6 years and I can say that they are single-handedly the reason I am working as a musician today.”

“Before going to Sam, I had absolutely no musical training or even experience playing any instrument outside of playing Rock Band. I decided I wanted to learn to play guitar, so I asked a composer friend of mine if he had any recommendations.
Sam has been working with me for 3 years now, teaching me everything from musical theory and why a song has the notes it does, to how to really perform up on stage and in front of friends. He's hired Grammy winning musicians to play in a band just to give me experience playing. He went out shopping with me for my first guitar and my second... and probably my third. He gave me free voice lessons on the side to make sure I was really prepared for my first show.
He works with completely inexperienced people like me and with professional musicians who have been working for 30 years and just want more insight into how to make their show better. He's fun and really cares about his students”.

“Sam Druckerman is without a doubt the BEST quality guitar teacher/performance coach in the LA area, and most likely all of California; and he's right here in Brentwood! I have paid for guitar lessons in the past, and NOTHING compares to the level of teaching that Sam can offer. He has even coached PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS on the stage at his workshops. What I'm saying is, Sam is more than capable of helping you reach your goals weather you're already an intermediate to advanced guitar player, or you just need help getting started, Sam is your best choice hands down.
1) Lessons are one on one-- he is completely devoted to you and your interests alone for the entire lesson.
2) You are not just a student to Sam. He truly cares about you; so it's not just like having a teacher, it's more like meeting up with your friend who's going to teach you some guitar =D
3) He has Lots of experience. Not just as a musician, but as a teacher. His techniques will help you reach your goals QUICKLY.
4) He teaches voice too! I actually had NO IDEA that I had a singing voice when i started with Sam. I went through a lot with it, but now I can sing AND play!! HOW HOT IS THAT?? Hahaha!
I can actually say that my experience with Sam Druckerman and SunPath Music has changed my life for the better, and I highly recommend him”.
“Let me just start by saying that Sam Druckerman is an amazing vocal coach. He has not only taught me the fundamentals of singing and performing but also the determination and strength that it takes to improve both of those. When I first started taking vocal lessons from Sam I knew he meant business. I was so excited to be working with someone so determined to see me improve. I learned so much from Sam.
When I first started performing I was a nervous wreck. I loved to sing and play the guitar, but my stage presence was terrible and I knew it. Sam knew exactly what to say and how to help me out of that. I can't express how beneficial the performance workshops are. He is a very motivational teacher and he doesn't give up on you. I've taken so much from what Sam has taught me and use it still to this day. I now give vocal lessons of my own and I make a living singing/performing at least two times a week. I owe a lot of my success to Sam and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to work with him”

“I met Sam at one of my gigs after I had just started singing. I'd already been a touring guitarist for years and had an all instrumental CD to my name, but I was feeling unsatisfied with my early attempts at singing. Taking vocal lessons with Sam gave me the confidence to let 'er rip. Sam stresses breath control and placement, with very specific exercises (to do with him and on your own) to improve, not just some "c'mon, try harder" mumbo jumbo. It's hard to imagine a better teacher than Sam. I'm about to release my fourth vocal CD this summer, a direct result of Sam's teaching methods. I've also taken part in a few of Sam's performance workshops and have seen the incredible improvement his guitar and voice students have made. It's inspiring to see students, whether they're absolute beginners or pro's, grow so fast. Oh, and Sam makes it fun too! Highly recommended”

“I have been working with sam for about a year now and my guitar playing has rapidly improved. Every time I show up theres something new to learn--the right way. At first I was hesitant to even play someone a song, now he has me playing,singing and performing with not half of the anxiety and nervousness I would get performing for anyone. I have had a lot of teachers, most were great players but they simply could not teach it. Sam is not only a great player, but he is a master teacher. I highly recommend you work with him if you are serious, or just want to learn it the right way”.
“I have been a professional musician and songwriter for many years. I found that I was singing more and more, and slowly getting better, but I wasn't enjoying it as much as I wanted to, because I didn't feel very confident about my singing, and I didn't really know what I was doing. I started going to Sam Druckerman for voice lessons and things really began to open up for me. I started to love singing, and began to feel confident even when I was working with much more experienced singers. Sam makes his students work hard on supporting their voice and putting the note where it's supposed to be. Sam uses simple concepts to help you achieve a big, vibrant tone, and intense exercises to increase stamina and improve intonation. As a consequence, my confidence and enjoyment have increased, and I have been able to deliver to my full potential. I heartily recommend Sam”
