Melody was great to work with. She responded quickly to my emails, kept me informed about any changes and was very understanding when I needed to change our plans. From my experience, the company seems well-managed, organized and friendly. I love the idea of music lessons in our home and would recommend this company to anyone.

My son was hesitant to start his guitar lessons, and if he didn’t like it, it would be a major ordeal to get him in the car to go. I work like everyone and have zero time left. The fact that Tess comes to the house to teach - while I prepare dinner - is freaking awesome. What a time saver. And shes made it a great experience by offering tons of encouragement and lots of laughter wrapped up in a neat 30 min session. Highly recommend.

My mom has always wanted to play the drums but never got a chance, so for her 71st birthday we got her a drum lesson package with Stephen. Never too late to learn something new! She absolutely LOVES the lessons and has been very happy with Stephen. He is professional, kind, and most of all makes the lessons fun! I am so glad that we found Stephen - he has been a fantastic teacher for my mom.

Mark is one of the best musicians and teachers I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only does he have vast experience with teaching and playing multiple different instruments, he knows how to effectively teach anyone at any age or level and can quickly adapt to any student's needs. He will go out of his way to give you the best lessons possible with an upbeat and positive attitude. He is always on time, professional, flexible and punctual. He cares greatly about his students and seeing them excel. Not only a great player, Mark is a very experienced and skilled teacher that I highly recommend!

We received percussion lessons from Kevin Keith. He not only is an excellent musician, but he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowledgeable in many genres of music, from solo literature, to band/orchestral music, to jazz. Of which, he shares his knowledge and experiences with his students freely. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic to ensure that his students get a quality education. He is great in communication, both with the student , in ensuring understanding of lesson materials, and with the parents on updates on how the lessons are progressing. He has a very patient and friendly disposition, that would allow anyone to feel comfortable in working with him. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor for the past 2.5 years.

I have had a some other drum teachers and Mike is by far the best teacher I've had. He does an excellent job of building the lessons around the direction I need to improve upon and he integrates new concepts into our lessons very well. He has helped me think like a drummer, something that has been very eye opening for me. Also his analogies are on point.

Eric Low Drum Lessons

Verified review

We highly recommend Eric Low to anyone wanting to learn the drums, or advance farther along from where they are currently playing. Our son took lessons from Eric for several years. Lessons were a mix of books and free-form. Eric took the time to find songs of interest to go along with the lesson. Eric is personable and professional. Should either of our schedules change, Eric was responsive and flexible, and we kept in touch during inclement weather. It is an added benefit that Eric has an academic background and professionally plays as well. Our son really enjoyed their time together. When the time is right to return to drum lessons, we will seek-out Eric again, with no hesitation!

I was recommended to Paul by a friend. He is so patient with me, and knows how to keep things fun! He's also incredibly knowledgeable in his teaching. He has encouraged me every step of the way! I have taken lessons with other teachers, and Paul is unique in that he brings his guitar to lessons so we get to "jam" and I feel like I'm in a band. I would recommend him for all ages. Love him!

Lyza is able to connect with young children and adapt to different learners. She started with our son when he was 3.5 and he was very interested in actually playing Instruments. Most folks just turned us down and told us to take one of those toddler group classes as he was too young for real lessons. The classes were all nice but not all that interesting to him. We tried several different places. All with great reviews like swallow hill and such. Lyza has a great balance of structure, free form, global exploration with the various instruments she brings with her, focus on specifics of an instrument and learning to read music. She is also a really intelligent, kind and fun person who you can completely trust with your child. Value - she comes to your home for 45 per hour. And it's a full hour. Often a bit longer. That is an amazing value. At |15-30 for various 45 minute group classes you are better off doing lessons with lyza every other week.

About

We are a home-based studio. Our home has been converted with multiple sound-proofed areas included a space with a waiting area and a large viewing windows for parents of students. My wife, Rachel teaches piano and toddler music classes under the name Monkey Musik. I teach drums, guitar, and trumpet in a separate studio space of our home. We have taught students of all ages and skill levels for nearly 10 years. I take drum students starting at age five. I have a child-sized set and an adult sized set to accommodate any size of student from beginner to moderate skill levels. I take guitar/ukelele students starting at age seven. I can help recommend a new instrument for students if they don't have one. I don't teach tabs. I teach using a classical method that focuses on learning to read and understand written music. I also blend chord knowledge with classical knowledge from beginner to advanced skill levels. I take trumpet students starting at age 9-10 or younger on a case-by-case basis. For beginner trumpet students, I will focus on how to form an embouchure and how to play notes in the first octave. With more advanced students, I focus on range, tone, accuracy, and endurance. For moderate-advanced students, I teach from Arbans.

About

My drum lessons stand out from other drum lessons because I focus on teaching you what you want to know, not what I want you to know. I help you learn by associating drums with something you can personally relate to.

About

I teach Heavy Metal, Hard Rock drumming, Double bass techniques, rudiments, odd meter, hand/foot patterns, phrasing, structuring a thematic drum part, playing with a click track, reading, power with finesse, fluidity, etc. I teach piano with an emphasis on musical literacy, theory and proper technique. I have over twenty years of experience as both a private instructor and professor of music composition.
