I have taken guitar lessons from Kim for many years. Not only is she an amazing guitarist who provided expert guidance but she was able to help me move from a basic beginner status to new levels in chord progression and improvisational technique. I highly recommend her lessons for an anyone with an interest in learning more about playing the guitar and music in general.
Stefano is a great teacher! I started taking drum lessons as an adult who'd always wanted to learn drums but had no experience. Stefano makes sure to work at your pace, finding the balance between pushing you to grow while ensuring you grasp everything and are actively improving and understanding. He also dives right into your favorite music making practicing fun and satisfying from the very start.
I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!
I was, no, am so impressed with every aspect of Mr. Snydman's lessons. Need I say more? Yes! In addition to his musical knowledge, he is a genuinely kind caring person.
I've been taking lessons from Matthew for about a year now. The amount I have progressed is crazy. Last year I was playing 4/4 beats along to weezer and now I can play Tom Sawyer from start to finish. What's really cool about Matthew is that he concentrates on technique rather than fancy fills, although he is capable of teaching both. The technique is what's ultimately going to get me work in the long run though. He is constantly improving himself as well as teaching me things he learns along the way. Very easy to work with and easily the most hilarious person I know. If you're looking for drum lessons, look no further. He's not cheap but has worked with me on his hourly rate. Remember, you get what you pay for.
GREAT DRUM TEACHER! I HAVE A BLAST EVERY SINGLE TIME I GO TO MY LESSON !!!!!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
Efrein is teaching me theroy and steel pan drum. Hes very patient with my learning skills. I am learning quicker then I thought I would. I would recommend him because he is very knowledgeable in music. jh
Michael has a very straight forward approach to teaching. Whether it was answering a technique question or developing new ways to manuever around the set, each lesson consisted of my thoroughly learning new information in a practical and very efficient manner. Being a percussionist myself, we naturally have good rapport with the language we communicate with. Michael's way of personal interaction alongside his instrument is certainly one of the best forays into any practice and study of music, for those just starting or already proficient.
I've been taking lessons from Steve for quite a few months now. From the beginning, Steve has put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. He is always precise and makes sure that I understand what we are doing before we move on. I also appreciate that he allows me to practise in his studio on equipment that he provides. In general I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and feel as if I have improved a lot. I thank Steve for being patient and a good teacher.
My son began taking drum lessons with Lindsay via skype at 6 years old. He will be 9 next month and is still loving his drum lessons. He has learned so much in such a short period of time. Not only is Lindsay clearly a skilled drummer but is also an apt teacher. She is patient while pushing my son to improve his skills. I know from personal experience that learning an instrument can be frustrating to the point that the student will want to give up. This is especially true for a kid. Lindsay understands this and has the ability to balance progress with patience. I highly recommend Lindsay as a drum teacher!
Steve is an excellent teacher with vast knowledge of drum techniques and styles. He is a very relatable and friendly person who has a method of teaching that can work with almost any student. We are still doing lessons and I am thoroughly enjoying each one.
I had a class with Chris and it was totally inspiring mind opening. We played on his studio for more than an hour and he showed me very interesting concepts about rudiments and how to apply in music. You can learn the base rudiments in a book, but Chris really nows how to use in the drums in a musical and inspiring way. Besides that, he showed me concepts about timing that I didn't had contact with other teachers. He's very creative on drums and has a good method for teaching it.
We love having Brian Griffin as a drum/percussion teacher. My son began lessons as a young elementary student, and Brian was able to engage him immediately by creating lessons around the music he was drawn to. Over the years Brian's teaching continually evolved with my son's interests and focus. There has always been an excellent rapport between them, while maintaining the dynamic of student/teacher relationship. Brian has always shown a high level of professionalism, he's always engaged and enthusiastic, and my son has developed not only in the mechanics of percussion but also what it means to be part of an ensemble and just an overall well-rounded musician. We are grateful for his years of instruction and support.
Mike is a true professional in every sense of the word. His extensive knowledge and skill of his craft is extraordinary!!! A pleasure to work with ! Highly recommended!!!
I personalize my lesson plans around the individual. This helps the musician stand out when entering a situation where they would be playing with others..

We have a team of musicians with great skills and knowledge of the music Industry! We don't bore you with theory, we go straight to learning how to play your instrument, and you also get tips on how to start your own band!
In addition to being technically proficient, I was raised by the music of dc so in my playing one can hear a spectrum of different feels from high energy hardcore and punk tempos to the slow pocket of dc's indigenious groove music, go go.
I act on a one to one basis. Treating each person as an individual with specific needs and abilities. So wether its drum kit lessons where i work on your favorite styles of music. To the deeper drum workshops geared to help people at different stages in life. Then deeper still with the gong and tuning fork work. Which is specific for each person as we all vibrate in a different way.
