Verified review

My oldest daughter has been with Music Elements for a year and a half and she loves it! She takes voice lessons with Laura; only after a few lessons her voice quality and range improved quite noticeably. Since then my daughter has had many performances, solos and leads in shows. Anita, the owner, is so welcoming and accommodates us with lessons to work around our busy schedules if needed. She answers her e-mails right away and is always pleasant! My second oldest started taking piano with Dan and is thriving with progress every week. The waiting room offers crayons for my younger ones - and coffee/water for adults (which is so nice after a long day). The staff is friendly and the students leave happy! I'm so glad that Anita found me on here and we are thankful to work with such a talented, successful school right here in our home town! Boston and New York quality teaching in Chelmsford, Ma.

About

I am an unschooled drummer who has been playing for over 50 years. I recently decided I wanted to expand my playing by taking some drum lessons and began working with James. I doubt there are many drum teachers who I could successfully work with but James brings some very special qualities to his teaching that make him perfect for me. In addition to being an extremely skilled drummer, he really seems to understand that each student is unique and that his teaching needs to be suited to that student. He is patient, he is very supportive, and he seems to have an intuitive sense of how to approach people as he works with them. In addition to all that he's a really nice guy.

About

I can't say enough good things about Mike and the DeAngelis school of music and arts. My son is so happy with his guitar lessons and his band. He's not an easy kid to keep interested in anything and Mike and his teachers have the patience to keep him focused and engaged. My son and I could not be happier. His playing is coming along nicely and his band flat out rocks! Thanks DeAngelis school.

About

Rick is a drum instructor, and I've been taking weekly, hour-long lessons with him for 6 months. After trying out a few instructors in Boston who had no methodology, no go-to books, no handouts, and generally no system or materials for teaching, I found Rick via much googling. Rick is a Berklee trained, practicing musician & drum instructor. His facilities are great: a treated room with 2 side-by-side kits, 2 practice pads, metronomes, etc. Rick has an endless supply of ideas, handouts, and also, a great book (that he authored) that's kept me busy for longer than any other books I've worked with (this is a good thing). He teaches in local schools, as well as private lessons, and I'm glad to have found an instructor that's thinking about drumming & instruction at the professional level he's engaged in. I enjoy Rick on a personal level (I'm near him in age), but would consider him a good role model for kids, showing patience & flexibility in his approach, as well as espousing a strong work ethic.

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.

About

In 2007, multi-instrumentalist Dan Fox founded the Morningside Music Studio in Arlington's Morningside neighborhood. His vision was to have a laid back and supportive environment he and his wife, Jennifer Elowsky-Fox could teach private lessons and jazz ensembles. It has proved a good idea as groups and lesson times have started to fill with musicians of all levels eager to play and improve. Morningside offers weekly ongoing jazz ensembles. You can join one anytime and continue as long as you like. Work on improvisation techniques as well as building a repertoire of tunes. Topics include playing modal jazz, blues, standards, scales for improvisation, how to build a solo, phrasing, pacing, dynamics, and a lot more. Instruments accepted are piano, bass, guitar, drums, vocalists, and horn players. Players should either have some knowledge of harmony or be somewhat new to jazz but have some proficiency on their instruments. The idea will be to group people together who are at similar levels. Steinway grand piano, amps, and drums are available. Each group will be limited to four players. Morningside groups play concerts every few months. Previous venues include The Lily Pad, Ryles Jazz Club, The Chit Chat Lounge, Somerville Cable Access TV, and various coffeehouses. Fee is $25/class. No obligation to continue after first class if you choose not to. All groups are taught by Dan Fox. Schedule: Please contact us for the current schedule of evening and weekend daytime groups. Combos at all levels from beginning to advance are currently being offered. "The Morningside Music student ensemble is the ideal introduction into (or exploration of) the jazz world for the beginner/intermediate level player. In the short time since I've started, not only have I built substantially on my repertoire, but learned useful concepts for soloing and accompaniment. Under competent direction (and with a little hard work) you'll be amazed how you grow as a musician in leaps and bounds- two thumbs up!" Ethan Kaczowka - guitarist, 23 yrs. old

Hey! I am a 26 year old Boston-based drummer. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a 4-year Performance degree in 2010. Since then I have been consistently touring the United States and the World playing drums with hip-hop artist Hoodie Allen. I'm confident I can give you a fresh take on how to approach drumming in ANY STYLE. I'm obsessed with memory, mind-body connection, drumming technique/vocabulary, and the psychology of great performers. I'm itching to pass on my knowledge to all who seek it. I have appeared in Modern Drummer, Drum Magazine, Drumhead Magazine, Rhythm UK magazine, AP magazine, and I was in my local newspaper when I was a chubby toddler. I am endorsed by Meinl Cymbals, Vater Drumsticks, and Aquarian Drumheads. Anyways, I have only been formally teaching for a few years, but I have grown to absolutely love it. Feel free to check out my videos at youtube.com/jimmykadesch or find me on facebook/instagram/twitter as "jimmykadesch" LET US DRUM TOGETHER! The lessons are held at Studio 52 in Allston, MA. It's climate controlled, there are 2 drumsets, and they are in an extremely safe and professional location. I charge $25 for 30 minutes or $50 for 60 minutes. Thanks for taking the time! I honestly believe that there is limitless value in developing a musical talent. I'd love to help you along the way! Any skill level welcome!
