Both my son and I were students at Music elements. My son was instructed by Dylan for drum lessons and I took voice lessons. The facility was neat and clean and the instructors were very professional and knowledgeable. Additionally, they were very flexible with their scheduling to accommodate my buys lifestyle. I would recommend Music Elements to the novice or advanced learner.

Josh is an excellent teacher whose drum playing skills and general musical knowledge are impeccable. I started lessons with Josh this past summer to try and pick up a different instrument from guitar and improve my rhythmic abilities and he helped me progress a great deal on the drums. He has a great ear which he has developed from years of playing and which he keeps sharp by playing on a regular basis. He uses his very keen ears to pick up on the most minute details of your playing which will help you develop as a detail oriented player. I like Josh's teaching style, he's a very encouraging person and will celebrate your progress every step of the way, but he isn't afraid to tell you what you need to hear in order to improve as a player. All in all my experience with Josh has been great and I would 100% recommend him to a player of any skill level.

Kris has a way of making the material so easy to learn. Whenever I am stuck with a particular area, he breaks it down and we work on all of the parts together. Soon enough, it all comes together! I have learned A LOT since I first started taking drum lessons at The Drummers' Studio. I drive about 40 minutes after a long day of work to my drum lesson, and it is worth it every single time! I really can't say enough great things about The Drummers' Studio, a truly excellent experience that will leave you with great knowledge and skills.

I could not have chosen a better drum teacher for my son. Sam's style of teaching is exactly what will encourage and influence musicians of the future. It is not a "Here's your book, let's go over this piece and then practice it 30 minutes a day for the next week" kind of lesson. Sam challenges his students, wants to know what they have been listening to and want to try to play, then it's using that and breaking things down into rudiments from there, all while keeping it fun and just jamming.

Seven years ago I took drum lessons with my middle school band director. Basically, I stood in front of the drum set and watched him perform a step. Then I tried the step a couple times while the teacher watched me. This process took about 15 minutes. Then the teacher would tell me that for the rest of the hour I was to learn the step, while he went off to do his other stuff, and that I wasn’t to return for another lesson until I mastered the step. I never learned the step (who would with this kind of teaching) and I never returned for another lesson. Seven years later, I had a drum lesson with Jonathan Wollenberger. I was completely blown out of my mind. The lesson began with him showing me how to hold sticks, and him helping me to adjust the heights of the cymbals, chair, and drums. Then he proceeded to try and teach me the same step that I had been taught in middle school. As I tried to get the hang of it, he was extremely attentive, and gave me advice about gripping the sticks, moving my arms and shoulders, how to sit, and more. Above all, his happy charm and patience really made me feel motivated. Jonathan is very knowledgable about drumsticks, drum sets, and teaching materials. Based on our lesson, he was able to recommend me a specific type of stick based on my arm length, strength, and height. He always comes to our lessons well prepared and in a good mood. Apparently, my lesson with him was his first time teaching! I was very surprised, as it seemed like he had been teaching for years. Jonathan is a natural when it comes to teaching, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for drum lessons.

My son has taken drum lessons from Brian for several years now and really enjoys their weekly sessions. In addition to excellent technical teaching, my son enjoys Brian's sense of humor and that they work on a variety of music types. Brian is always accommodating about scheduling conflicts for which I have been grateful. All-in-all, Brian is a wonderful music instructor and a pleasure to work with.

This is Lee and I’ve spent two semesters with Mike to continue with my drum set lesson. Mike is a very easygoing and professional teacher in percussion, and I enjoyed a lot to learn with him. Since I had a intense schedule in my own major, I could not guarantee my practice time length on my own, but Mike still tried to cover as much as possible and thought me a lot in percussion. I would recommend to study with Mike no mater what level you are in percussion. He is patient and accommodating.

I've tried several drum instructors for my son, and Jesse is the best by far. He brought back his motivation. He figures out what the student likes and moves from there. He's easy with programming the dates and provides a really good value for the student. I'll continue to have my child take courses from him and highly recommend him to potential students.

I've taken 3 lessons with Ben and I am extremely happy and excited about the potential of my drumming! Ben is a great, thoughtful teacher that is not scared to throw new and exciting rhythms at you. As a beginner drummer with music experience, I value his patience and friendliness and he will even cater his lessons to any style you are curious about! If you are new to drumming or are at a higher level, Ben is the guy that will open your drumming to new levels. I look forward to our lessons and many more throughout the year!

I have had an excellent experience taking drum lessons from juan. He is extremely good at assessing the skill level of the student and presenting challenging material that will allow the student to grow quickly. Juan has taught me not only very applicable grooves but also concepts that have both transformed my practice time and opened up my mind to the creative possiblities on my instrument. He has shown me several ways to maximize my practice time and ways in which I can most effectively integrate what I am learning into my natural playing. Juan is an extremely knowledgeable musician and I myself have grown as a musician after just over a month of taking lessons from him.

Marco is AWESOME! I love my lessons and find him to be so great at making me relaxed and able to understand everything he's showing me and explaining to me. I've had teachers before, Marco is hands-down the best I've had. I feel so lucky to tap in to his knowledge and talents and extensive experience.

    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 am a Boston based graduate of Berklee College of Music, with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Performance. I create fun and engaging lessons for all ages that are tailored to your specific personalities and needs! I have worked with a wide range of age levels from 7 year olds to adults in their 40’s. The skill levels were anywhere from kids just wanting to try drums out, to students wanting an advanced method and perspective on drums and music. I try to cater to the student’s specific needs and preferences, and find great rewards in the various styles of teaching from beginner to advanced. I love to incorporate listening and transcribing famous beats or songs, as well as songs the students might want to learn. I use a mix of learning from notation and reading, with hearing things by ear as well, to develop a balanced connection between the limbs and ears. I use drum method books for things like 4-way independence in the limbs, and having good technique and control. I also think improvisation is an essential part of music, and I allow students to be free in expressing their musical ideas within the context of a song or groove. This is the most fun for me! One fun method I use is a “Call and Response” method, to work on memory and critical listening as well. It all depends on the pace that the student is most comfortable with, and maybe if they only want to learn their favorite pop/rock songs, that’s fine as well. I just might try incorporating the methods above in a more suitable way for that specific individual.

    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.
