I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
I am just beginning to learn how to play the drums as an adult for the first time. With in just a few months Tad has given me many tools to make strides toward feeling like a real drummer. The lessons are really fun as well as challenging. He pushes you to break beyond what you feel you are capable of. Awesome lessons, as well as super professional and in a comfortable cool studio. I am excited to see how far I will go with the help of Tad!
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.
I sing on my church choir and noticed that I wasn't connecting to the directions of the music director. Terrence taught my son piano several years ago and was on his second year teaching my daughter. So I began taking voice lessons with Terrence and began learning how to control my breathing and protecting my vocal cords as well as learning about tone, pitch and stamina. I look forward to our next set of lessons which also fits my budget!
I have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
As an adult taking up the guitar can be a humbling experience. However based on Lou Ubrianco's stellar reputation and experience I started taking lessons and was very impressed with the learning experience. Later I decided to move south and I knew the one thing I would miss was my guitar lessons. Since then I've had 3 different instructors and none of them were at the level as Lou. I would recommend U Music for students of all ages and levels of playing. Also for different styles of music as I was into Country Music at the time. Being as honest as I can, although I have no personal lesson experience with the other instructors I know that they would have to excel at their profession or they would not be at U Music. I would highly recommend lessons for all at U Music!
Chris Tibaldi gave both of my sons drum lessons for many years throughout elementary, middle school and high school. My sons had several drum instructors before we found Chris and they wish they had him from the start. He was by far the most talented drummer and teacher out of all of them, and always came prepared with a lesson to teach them if they did not have requests to learn a song or have something for school. They each grew so much as people and musicians because of Chris. My oldest son, already an advanced drummer, learned so much from Chris, who can teach and develop both beginners and advanced drummers. We could not have asked for a better instructor. My sons loved getting drum lessons from Chris and looked forward to their lesson each week. Chris is an outstanding drum instructor, who is extremely talented. Because of Chris's exceptional instruction both of my sons did NYSSMA, were selected for All County numerous times, went on to play in college and were even selected to be the drum major. If you are looking for someone to teach you or your child the value of music, particularly drums and percussion, there is no one better than Chris Tibaldi for the job.
This dude is amazing, he's crazy talented with the drums and has a lot of patience with kids. My 9 year old son has been going to him through out the summer time and he as been teaching him the basics of drumming (of course). He even started teaching my son how to read music. He is reasonably priced, his spot is a little small and dark but hey it works. When you meet him tell him to play a little something he'll definitely impress you!
I have known Joe Huster for the past 3 years. Joe has been my sons drum instructor and mentor. Joe works extremely well with kids and can be trusted. If anyone needs a reference regarding Joe, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Lieutenant Michael Bergbauer Union City Police Department NJ
I took lessons with Pablo about three years ago and at that time I was mostly self-taught, never having formal lessons before. I was a punk rock drummer so I was caught very off guard when Pablo wanted to teach me Afro-Cuban patterns. He took me way out of my element with these grooves I had never seen before. While challenging at first, he really helped me through it by writing the patterns out for me and showing them to me again and again...and again. Pablo helped make me into a more well-rounded drummer and I still recommend him today. Friendly, personal, and a teacher who really knows what he's doing; be sure to give him a call.
I wanted to learn to play the drums but I didn't know where to start. I was recommended by a friend who knew Michael, so I took lessons from him without knowing what to expect. Because I live in a NYC apartment, I used his practice room to practice, and he was generous to offer his time outside of our lessons to help me with some of the things I missed while I practiced. I took lessons from him for about a year until I began to get busy with my day time job. But during that time, I sincerely enjoyed learning from him. Michael is very patient and very articulate when he teaches concepts, and he is clearly very passionate about music. He is well versed and knowledgeable on all genres, and this got me engaged in different styles of music as well. Michael is a great teacher, but he is also a great guy. He has a genuine and sincere demeanor, and very prompt and conscientious with his work. I really enjoyed learning from him, and I hope I can go back to practicing drums again soon.
Greg is a great percussion teacher. My daughter just started her lessons (drum set) with him (age 14), and she is learning a lot in just the first few lessons. She also performed in his recital at the end of last year. He is flexible with scheduling sessions and has provided a lot of information on after school activities. Greg also helped us pick out the right electronic drum set, so we didn't buy equipment that we didn't need. My daughter is having a lot of fun as Greg makes sure she learns the basics, but also is playing along with some of her favorite songs from the radio.
I hired Nick a few months ago to teach me the drums, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a teacher. He is always on time and is flexible, which helps me when my schedule becomes clustered. Nick always has each lesson planned, and I learn something new each time we meet. Most importantly, he is a cool guy and makes playing the drums fun! I look forward to working with Nick into the future! -Phil C.
His is an outstanding drummer and he taught me so much I am so glad to be able to get in touch with him.
The Al Miller Drum School has been in existence for over 5 decades. It is an easy program to follow and has provided it's students with the tools needed to understand rhythm and technique. The system is based on Al's proven instructional method begun in 1951. Many of today's most well-known drummers have studied the Miller drum system, including Billy Cobham, Greg Bissenette and Rod Morgenstein, to name just a few. Even the great Buddy Rich recognized the value of his system and asked my father to teach him to read music. Since my father's passing in 2000, I've been expanding his method and personalizing it for the modern drummer.

In my ukulele, guitar, and drum jam classes, curious beginners can pick up a new instrument in a fun, creative environment with an experienced teacher. Private and group lessons are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians. Hybrid lessons are also available, meaning students can choose to combine instruments in a private class (ex: guitar and voice). The students will learn the following: * Basic musical concepts (pitch, rhythm, timing, scales, chords, harmony) * Fun songs and riffs * New styles of world music * Simple strumming patterns * Common rhythms from around the world * Easy fingerpicking techniques * Basic music theory * How to accompany other musicians Students can try making their own songs and much more! I hope to see you jammin' to some new tunes soon! The Teacher: Andrew Salamanca has experience with a variety of world music styles, and he hopes to share this knowledge with his students. He also has 15 years of musical experience and 7 years of teaching experience. He has learned to play 10 instruments, including 2 traditional Chinese instruments.

I give quality drum lessons for 30-60 minutes. I go to Rutgers University for music education and performance with a concentration in percussion. I learn from the best in the business. If your child is thinking about taking lessons or if you're an adult who has always wanted to learn how to play the drums, then I am what you are looking for.
I used to play in a metal band called "Emmure" for 5 years. I have the knowledge it takes to help you advance your music career, not only on a playing level, but on a business level as well.
