I took drum lessons from Mark for about 7 months. I have been playing for 38 years but always thrive to learn more. He was able to provide me alternative exercise sand help me gain a better understanding of my opportunities. I have been able to take my playing to another level. His approach to teaching is perfect for any level of student, beginner or advanced. He is a true professional and an outstanding person. You won't go wrong with Mark! Blaine VazApr 10, 2015
Mark is an Outstanding, Brilliant Musician! Each lesson I have with him I am amazed at his talent on drums. He makes learning fun and he is very patient and understands when a student may need more time for mastering the lesson. I would highly recommend Mark De Rose if you are looking for a percussion instructor. His knowledge and experience world wide is incredible. He can teach you any instrument and makes it look so easy. He encourages the student to push themselves so that they can strive to the levels they want to accomplish to enjoy playing music. Best decision I made was hiring Mark as my teacher for the drum kit. Hint for a new student he knows if you practice or not!Apr 28, 2015
My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed.Apr 24, 2015
My son has been instructed by Mark for almost four years. Mark is an outstanding teacher. His credentials are by themselves impressive, but his ability to relate his knowledge to kids is even more so. Connor's ability to understand and read music is fantastic. Mark also knows the performance side of playing drums and has encouraged Connor to actually incorporate his knowledge to play alone and in a band. He is patient and encouraging which is what motivates Connor to work and practice. He is a mentor as well as a teacher. He is superior at what he does and we highly recommend him.Apr 2, 2015
