"Bulent is a fun loving teacher who loves music, and is wonderful with children of all ages. He has taught our daughter for both voice and piano lessons and our son for drum lessons. His technical knowledge is wonderful, he is exact with the students in regard to technique, breathing and stretching exercises, and body alignment. His lessons are fun and he is full of enthusiasm which rubs off on the students. He helps make younger students feel at ease, and has a gentle manner, which makes lessons very enjoyable. We would recommend Bulent to anyone, regardless of musical ability." Allyson P. and Jason E.

I am a new student of Dor Herskovits. My experience so far has been excellent. He has gone out of his way to try to accommodate my schedule, and meet me after work. He is very knowledgable and eager to share his knowledge. His lessons consist of theory, technique, rudiments and also getting down and playing the drums! The lesson is very well balanced. I am a Music teacher myself in the NYC public school system, so I am pretty good at recognizing someone will talent, who knows his stuff, and is a good teacher. Dor has it all and really seems to care! I highly recommend Dor Herskovits.

We were lucky enough to be introduced to Justin for weekly lessons for my 10 year old, and he is thrilled each week when Justin arrives. ( ALWAYS punctually, I might add!)My son is enthusiastic about his lessons, and he's progressed beautifully. Equally important, his love for music has been enriched by working with Justin. If you're looking for an engaging, responsible and all around amazing guy for drum lessons, Justin is your man. I wholeheartedly endorse him, and am delighted to have been introduced to him.

My son has taken drum lessons with Brian for a few years. What we all appreciate was that he was is so flexible with the music my son has to play from typical school music to praise music. He also has been very flexible with the times my son has his lessons. Brian has done an outstanding job both teaching and relating to my son. He has never been short with him but has encouraged him to grow in his music and to learn new and different techniques playing the drums. Brian is one of the few teachers I can honestly say without hesitation the lessons are great quality for the money and the lessons can only help my son to grow in the coming years.

I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!

My 11 year old has been learning from Matt for more than a year now. Matt is a fantastic teacher. He has instilled a love of music and drums in my son. Matt is not only a great drummer, but also knows how to relate to young folk and keep the sessions interesting with humor. My kid loves his jokes and thinks Matt is way cool! Matt can teach both at his studio or at your home. My kid likes to go to his studio, since he has drumsets, guitars and a piano there. Matt will often teach a lesson and then intersperse it with jamming on the guitar and singing, while my kid drums. It is very motivating to see how all the pieces work together. Matt is also flexible, easygoing and friendly. It is difficult to find a teacher who is excellent at what he does AND can keep kids motivated with humor AND is an overall great guy! Matt also teaches adults. I strongly recommend Matt as a teacher for you or your kid!

About

I teach guitar to any age and level; as well as music theory, composition and history. I also offer recording services and beginner lessons on piano, drums, hand percussion and violin.

About

I am an experienced drummer with over 14 years of professional experience. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music and currently perform around the Boston area with a number of up-and-coming artists. I have extensive teaching experience and also perform in a lot of very wide-ranging musical situations, ranging from rock to straight-ahead jazz. I love to teach and have a studio in my apartment in Brookline and a teaching studio in Cambridge near Central Square. Ideally, I'd like to teach at either one of my studios, but I'd be willing to come to where you are, provided your location is easily accessible by train. Yes, I don't drive.

I create comprehensive lesson plans that cater to each student's individual needs. We will work on the material you want to work on. I want to help you learn an instrument.

About

My name is Alex Melcher, and I am a private drum instructor with 7 years of teaching experience. I have taught young beginners the basics of hand techniques and percussion studies to advanced drum set concepts and improvisation. I have spent my musical career exploring many styles of playing, genres of music, and different ways of creating soundscapes for each particular musical situation. Styles I specialize in include rock, jazz, funk, R&B, Latin, blues, and classical. Finding a teacher who you can relate with makes all the difference. With teaching, I strive to relate with students in new ways, basing my lessons on the student's strengths and personal interests.
