Gary is FABULOUS! He is patient and kind, and really quite funny! Best of all, Gary can cultivate a child's natural talent for music. One of the many awesome skills Gary has is the ability to group children together to form bands. He puts bands together where the children bring out each other's musical strengths. These kids have ended up forming friendships and bonds that are long lasting. Even a shy child feels comfortable performing, after Gary's encouragement and tutelage. My oldest child, now in college, attributes his love for music to Gary. We cannot say enough positive things about Gary and encourage everyone to bring their children to Gary for music lessons.
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!
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.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
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.
Michael is a fantastic teacher. He brings great material and patience to every lesson. He taught me to play with confidence and made me feel more comfortable behind a drumset.
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
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.
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!
Dustin has been giving my 7 year old drum lessons for 2 years, he's great with my son, patient, talented and always on time. I can't recommend him high enough!
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.
Jim is the first drum teacher I've had and I can't imagine a better introduction to drums and different beats than the one he's provided! He is very professional and accommodating, comes prepared to your lessons, and even makes sure you have practice material in between lessons. He's clearly very experienced with the instrument, and is an amazing teacher :)
I didn't know what to expect being a first time thumbtack user but I couldn't be happier. Rob was great and my son is SUPER EXCITED to continue learning the drums. Great experience, and we intend to continue lessons.
Passionate about what she does ! Will take her time to teach you until you get it right as well as motivate you even further to keep learning. I recommend her for anyone with the desire to truly learn.
Very knowledgable about his craft and conveys that knowledge well. Super nice, chill guy too! So lessons are fun and not stressful but are still informative
I provide beginner and intermediate drum lessons in all genres and styles. I focus on groove and technique rather than reading or charts.
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.
I teach music to potential and current drum students and perform live jazz, jazz fusion, and other genres.
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. He has performed with a number of international musicians in both the United States and Taiwan.
I am a professional drummer. I've toured around the world and have learned from drummers like Carmine Appice, Chris Coleman, Thomas Lang, Zoro and many others. I currently play with two groups (Whyte Planes and January Jane) which take up most of my time, but I enjoy teaching and educating aspiring drummers.
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.
