Don was a true master. He was my drum teacher for 3 years. I had my ups and downs as a young man (did I want to be there or not) but Don was never afraid to give me a piece of his mind to put things into perspective. He was demanding and very reminiscent of a Drill Sergeant, but there was never any doubt that he had a passion for drumming and wasn't going to waste his time on a student who didn't want to be the best. He wasn't for everyone, but those who stuck with it got results. I went on to be a featured percussionist in the Army Band Field playing around the world for many years. I am still playing and teaching young students utilizing the "Don Frey Method" as hand written in my notebook by the man himself. I use a slightly different approach but Don's method still works.

Legendary? Yes. Excellent - yes. Tough? No
Don Frey loved playing the drums - his band played dance music for real dancers - as a teacher he was demanding ... that you cared. If you didn't care ... you were "out of there" becasue he had a waiting list. As I got older, my lesson time got later ... I think my last lesson time was 9:30PM.
If you cared about learning and you respected the fact that you were getting a master class at every lesson ... then you had a chance. Don's "army" of students / disciples is out in the world and they can thank Don Frey for the solid foundation they stand upon

He's retired now, so I don't even know why this is still on this site. But that kinda stinks for whoever wanted to take lessons. This man is legendary in York County. If you took from Don, you were good.
