"It is always a pleasure when working with Calvin. His passion for drumming is obvious and his creativity and musicality allow him to drop into any show or genre of music with ease. He is professional and easy going which makes him breeze to work with. I would highly recommend!"

"Calvin cares about the little things; the details that most session guys choose to omit. He plays with great feel, great time, and was a pleasure to work with from the start...beware though - he is annoyingly handsome."

"I first hired Calvin Hansen in 2012, and he quickly became a first-call drummer for us. Royal Caribbean Cruise Line hires a diverse roster of talent across a multitude of musical styles, and Calvin was fantastic across the board, so much so that he was promoted to Musical Director. While his excellent musicianship is evident to any listener, also know that he can sight-read anything, and is a good, responsible world citizen. Whether as a side man or leader, Calvin is top-shelf, highly recommended."
Calvin has been teaching my two kids for the last two years and I have seen immense improvement in those two years. His lessons are both engaging and exciting and his timely constructive feedback means that my children know what to work on for future lessons. More than his punctuality and professionalism he takes into account the children’s ideas such as if they want to improve their sheet reading and writing. In-between lessons he provides actives the children work on throughout the week and through this he has increased their confidence to start working towards achieving their grades. Calvin has been a great teacher and we were lucky to find him.

Calvin is a wonderful teacher, incredibly patient, engaging and encouraging. My son (11 years old) only started drum lessons recently, but has progressed quickly and is thoroughly enjoying himself. He always looks forward to his lessons and amazingly enjoys practicing! I would highly recommend Calvin and I'm so pleased we found him!
