Drum lesson for a total beginner - and Mike was terrific: kind, reassuring, extremely knowledgable. He had me playing to Hey, Jude before the session was over. And maybe above all, he made the whole experience lots of fun.
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.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
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!
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.
Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.
The drum lessons I've taken with John over the last few years have been invaluable to my drumming, whether it's solo in the studio or playing with others on stage. I had just started to play when we began lessons, working with stick control and timing. John provides an encouraging, positive atmosphere to build skills in technique and efficiency, and outlines practices and exercises to do on my own outside of the lessons. He also introduced me to essential warm up stretches and exercises, which are very handy for endurance or just ensuring I don't wear down too quickly while playing. John's lessons have been paramount to my goal of collaborating and performing with other musicians; I've advanced greatly since I first began studying with him. Highly recommended if you're just starting to play (as I was) or to fine tune your methods and learn something new if you've already been playing a while!
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.
My name is Chloe Kim and I am a jazz drumming student. When I was hoping to develop drum techniques such as wrists and feet movements, a lot of Sydney local musicians recommend Oli Nelson without a moment's hesitation. From the very first lesson, Oli arrived every lesson early to warm up and be prepared for the class materials, so watching him play every time I get to the lesson, inspired me to enjoy and work harder on practicing and playing drums. During the lessons, Oli was always so generous with the compliments which encouraged me a lot, but at the same time, he challenged me enough so that I could always take things with me to work on. His general ways of explaining and answering my questions were very systematic and they were all in full detail. He also used to tell me the stories of related artists or albums to check out when I come up with certain topics or questions and that helped me immensely to not only understand but continually take a genuine interest in music. One of my favorite parts was when Oli demonstrated things on drums, as even when the tasks seemed complicated, seeing Oli playing them amazingly gave me hope and showed the possibility to be able to play them like him if I also practice hard. Overall, from my experiences, Oli has professionalism in his teaching method and I would strongly recommend to any age or level of drumming students to get lessons from him. Thanks again for all your hard works and efforts Oli, I really appreciate your passionate teaching and guidance.
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
My son and daughter have been taking lessons at the Piano Workshop of Chester with Sonia for the past few years and they continue to make great progress!
As Peter Ronick's former drum teacher, I can easily say that any drumming student would be well served taking lessons with Peter Ronick. He is a top working drummer, and has the skills necessary to take any drummer to the next level. Sam Ruttenberg
Ryan shows up ready to dig into drum lessons with my son and is always so positive. In the short time he is working with my son, he has made tremendous progress!
Guitar Hangar is a full-service music store, with a wide selection of instruments from beginner to high-end instruments at competitive prices. More importantly, they focus on service after the sale -- including repairs, maintenance, accessories and perhaps most importantly for new and intermediate musicians, lessons. Rick has been my go-to guy for more than 10 years, and I give him and Guitar Hangar my highest recommendation.
