Carol has been wonderful as a music teacher. I was very nervous to start piano as an adult learner since it had been many years that I played. Carol is understanding, calm and motivating. She also challenges me with varied music and methods of learning. Although I am taking piano lessons, I am also learning music theory and the ability to accompany other instruments. I would highly recommend Carol as a music teacher.

I was taking drum lessons with Rob last year and a little bit the year before that. He always was the person that could teach me things the best. I could understand how he explained things and he would give me pages of exercises to take home so I could practice and make sure I understood the topic. In the time I took lessons with him, I learned more than I did from any drum teacher. We even got into more crazier styles like afro-cuban beats and up-tempo swing. It was always something interesting. I mean it when I say that he was the best teacher ive had :) -Julian Pyle

I left my drum lesson with Patrick all fired up! Patrick covered the basics for me, as someone brand new to playing drums, in a way that covered a ton of territory while getting me playing and improving by the end of the hour. I appreciated Patrick's embodied approach to drums, encompassing ergonomics and the physicality as well as the mental part of playing. He incorporated examples from music I knew and his enthusiasm and broad knowledge for drumming came through. I can't comment on his punctuality, as I was running behind schedule, but he was accommodating and responsive. His rate was not the cheapest I was quoted, but his expertise, clarity, and personableness were well worth his rate. Highly recommended!

My son has been going for drum lessons to Dan for about 5 months now. Dan is a good teacher. He is very patient and encouraging and Dan has been able to help my son with his love for drumming. His hand and foot coordination is getting better and he is always looking forward to drum classes. Dan is a professional and easy to work with, fun and punctual. He makes his class a learning experience without compromising on the enjoyment.

Danton has been an incredible gift to our family. We have gone through more piano teachers than I can count. My 14yo daughter actually quit piano and only decided to start again when she met Danton. My 8yo cried every time his other piano teachers show up, but when I tell him Danton is coming, he says, "Oh good!" (I think this is related to Danton using a blindfold during lessons. My 14yo son is taking bass lessons with Danton, and I can't express the joy I feel watching the two of them jam. Danton is cool. He is punctual. He is friendly. And he is also a great teacher. I am soooooo grateful we found him!

    Serious about learning the drumset? Charlie is your guy. Great teacher, always improving his game both as an educator and a player. Great guy, cares about his students progress. You better practice too! Charlie teaches out of love for the instrument, if you don't practice he may just refer you somewhere else! He is one of the area's best-kept secrets.

    Ms. Diane is very awesome in teaching my 6-year old boy!!! He has a very little attention span (very much expected in boys) and she exactly knows how to bring him back on track. She takes time to revisit lessons when she thinks he can do better. It is always a pleasure working with Ms. Diane.

    I had never had a drum lesson before but thought it would be something fun to try! Jaren was really good about breaking down what was necessary for me to know for my spontaneous lesson. I felt fully comfortable and encouraged learning from him. He was very knowledgeable and didn't make me feel anxious or intimidated trying something new which I really appreciated. He provided a professional, yet fun experience for me that I won't soon forget!

    About

    I have been drumming since I was five and before that... on pots and pans! I have been teaching drums since early in Highschool all the way through until now. I went to the University of the Arts and got my degree in Jazz Drum performance. I have played all of Philadelphia and continue to gig. I also do a lot of film work and so video lessons are a very practical model for me. I have a wide variety of styles and familiarity with different instruments and experience levels. Playing drums is fun and it should always maintain that otherwise, what's the point : )
