Stephan was a joy. The tuning went smoothly and I had my first piano lesson immediately following it. His breadth of knowledge is very impressive and his sensitivity to the gaps in mine made me feel very comfortable and helped with my own particular learning curve. I would highly recommend Stephan as a tuner and a teacher...
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.
Tim is a real pro and a very patient teacher . I started with him and now have my 7 year old daughter taking lessons with him as well. Tim figures people out and gets them heading the right direction . I am very pleased.
I’d been wanting to learn how to play drums since high school but just never got around to it. A friend recommended Geo highly and I finally bit the bullet and started lessons. I am so glad I did!!! Geo is such a great teacher — really patient, and responsive to my needs as a student. I work full time and Geo is always flexible. I am also not as young as I used to be and not a fast learner, but Geo is super patient and is always coming up with exercises and pieces to learn that are more my speed. He’s also so fun and just a cool dude — 10/10 recommend!!!
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.
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
Gives very specific and helpful advice. Also has a strong knowledge about Brazilian drumming and percussion.
Henry is a great drum instructor. He is an expert professional drummer and has been teaching drumming for many years. His approach to teaching is very systematic, focused on learning fundamental technique before tackling songs. He has a very good manner with students, being very positive, supportive, and good-humored. My 11 year-old son has made great progress with him.
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.
Eric gave our family drumming lessons and my son continued on with him for several years. He is patient and a good instructor.
I was a voice student at Hollywood Academy of Music for a few years. The instruction I got was worth so much more than what I paid because my teacher went to one of the best contemporary music schools (Musicians Institute) and was a frequent performer. Not only that, but she was fun to be around and naturally a very good teacher. I also took from a few other instructors and the standard was always just as high, even though the instructors had different backgrounds, they were all well-educated and good with people.
Every Friday I'm at GoDpsMusic for my drum lesson. Definitely my favorite day of the week! The atmosphere is excellent! The acoustic and electronic drum kits in the lesson studios are the best. If you want to schedule a lesson or purchase equipment, I strongly recommend GoDpsMusic. Kevin, Brendan, Bryan, Steve and Robbie are the "go-to" guys at GoDpsMusic.
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.
Thanasi is an experienced drum instructor. His passion for teaching comes from his personal joy of playing, inspiring and developing new generations of talents. Thanasi is a patient and fun teacher who can balance the excitement of playing an instrument with the discipline of learning. During the lessons, Thanasi focuses on musicality, musicianship, improvisation, creativity, groove, time, technique and style development. Once the necessary musical level is accomplished, Thanasi customizes a lesson plan to help you achieve your goals and success. His teaching technique is designed around actual performance, in which you will learn to develop a fun and creative practice routine. Born and raised in Sparta, Greece, Thanasi Moustogiannis had the desire to learn music and be a professional musician from an early age. This passion led Thanasi to become a versatile first-call freelance drummer and percussionist, with the ability to support any kind of music, ranging from ethnic/eastern Mediterranean music to pop and jazz. Although his primary focus is the drum set, Thanasi is also a trained pianist with degrees in both harmony of music and counterpoint. Thanasi is currently based in Los Angeles, California. Recently, he has performed with singer Mika Cole (LA music award), Aika (J-pop top 10) and Alexia (Chick Corea, 25 gold and platinum albums). Additionally, Thanasi collaborated with Neila Productions Studios (Marty Friedman, Ayaka Hirahara, Aika) for various recording projects such as the trailer as well as the theme song for the Warner Brothers movie "Ironclad", starring Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti and Brian Cox.
I teach private lessons and bring students together for jam sessions. (Bands) My students learn a lot and have fun doing it!
I specialize in teaching to each student's level and way of learning. I am a classically trained pianist and singer. I am a songwriter and electronic producer. I also record and engineer music. I can teach students to merge classical training and theory into modern compositions. I facilitate each student's unique talent and voice!
I provide percussion studio lessons, recording, sequencing and sampling. My world/ethnic styles are Afro Cuban, Brazilian, West African and more. I have been a professional percussionist for over 20 years, performing, teaching, writing, arranging and producing for large and small venues, live, TV and film. I thrive in any stylized percussion situation from concept development through completion and presentation. Join me to travel around the world in a drum.
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.
Learn to play drums like a rock star. I'm a Musicians Institute graduate and can help you take your drumming to the next level. I offer tons of curriculum and lots of fun.
I am 27 years old and have been playing both the drums and guitar for as long as I can remember. I took lessons myself for several years, and I would like to pass my knowledge on.
