I would first recommend Greg if you want to take drum lessons in San Francisco because he has great testimonials of how well he teaches. Here is what Greg has to say.
I am a patient and encouraging teacher with a broad base of knowledge to share with you. Yes, I specialize in jazz, but really that means I specialize in all styles of modern organic drumming. I have a lot of rock, R&B, and Latin experience, and those sounds are part of the current fabric of jazz. If you desire to approach your own style of music with a balance of skill and creativity, then you need to study with a jazz drummer.
Another place you can try is the Dyanamic Drumming Studio.
