Verified review

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 took drum lessons with Damien from the end of junior high school until the summer before I left for college and loved every minute of it! Damien's passion for music is contagious and his enthusiasm in our lessons encouraged me to explore music in a way that I had not expected. By incorporating my personal musical likes into his teaching style he created a comfortable atmosphere where I was not limited by self doubt. I miss our lessons and highly recommend him as a musical instructor.

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 wanted to start drum lessons in the area and didn't know where to start. A friend mentioned and recommended Stefano. He's a great teacher and definitely knows his stuff. His experience has allowed me to go at my own pace while integrating theory he's taught me and implementing them in my drum playing.

Cliff makes learning so much fun! He breaks it down so it really seems easy. I love his motto - he doesn't call it practicing he calls it playing. Also he is the only teacher I know of that plays along with you - he plays different riffs while you are learning the chords etc., so it makes it feels like you are having a jam session while you are learning! I highly recommend taking lessons with Cliff.

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.

Eugene’s Music Studio is one of the most professional & kind music studios we had the honor to work with. My son is so excited and cannot wait for his piano lessons. The teacher was able to keep him busy and involved throughout the entire session (not an easy task) and she always comes up with new ways for him to stay involved. We are very happy that we found Eugene's Music Studio. Eugene was very attuned and helped us find the best fit for our child and we look forward to seeing the progress he will make with time.

Ms. Ernesta is an outstanding piano instructor. Very professional and knowledgeable. Her instruction is very informative and fun at the same time. She is very patient and has great communication skills. My daughter is always looking forward having lessons with Ernesta. She has learned important basics of the music theory and also was able to play short versions of her favorite tunes after only few lessons. Thank you, Ms. Ernesta! Great instructor. Highly recommend to anyone interested learning piano!

He focuses on making you a better musician and not just a stick spinning rock star- but he can do that if that's what you are going for. Great lessons to keep your mind and body in rhythm.

I have been studying Afrocuban percussion with Caitlin once a week for 7 years now. She is a very talented multi-instrumentalist. She has been very committed to my growth and as a result of her patience and persistence has gotten me to understand and learn far more than I ever expected. She has developed a very personal style of teaching that was perfect for my growth, I am very grateful to have found Caitlin and recommend her to student of all levels.

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.
