Music Elements is fantastic. My son has been taking drum lessons there for 2 months. They have taken his love of drums and built on it. He now feels successful in how he is playing and is learning new things every week. His instructor is wonderful and made an effort to learn my son's strengths and weaknesses. This makes for very satisfying lessons. They go at the pace my son sets so he does not feel like it is tedious but fun. Music Elements was recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to learn more and enjoy music.

Josh is a fantastic drum instructor. He's got talent galore, enthusiasm to burn, and the ability to teach at whatever level the student is at. He combines a passion for music with a natural ability to communicate clearly, which translates into lessons that are super fun and productive. He trained at Berkley won awards for teaching, and is highly sought after as a performer He's truly a gem, as a person and as a drum instructor. Could not be happier!

I have been taking guitar lessons with David since 2010. He's a remarkable instructor. He covers everything from technique to songwriting to theory to you name it. I've learned a great deal from him and it has been fun. You'll have a blast too!

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.

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 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.

My son has been taking lessons here for 10 years and is part of the All Star Band which gives kids/youth the opportunity to experience being in a band and putting on a live show. Lessons have helped him grown into a better musician and given him confidence. Everyone there is so nice and helpful. The instructors are great... I recommend them to everyone who asks where my son takes lessons.

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 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!

Just started working with Michael. He’s a talented artist and passionate about Music which is exactly what I was looking for in a music (singing) instructor for my 15 year old daughter. She looks forward to her lesson and most recently creating her own songs!

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.

    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!
