"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.
Dor is an exceptional teacher and musician. He fosters a comfortable learning environment where you can really let loose on the drums! Every lesson yields noticeable improvements. I've never played the drums before, and I would 100% recommend Dor to anyone who's trying to learn!
Justin has given drum lessons to my son for a few years now. He is prompt, reliable, and friendly. Justin chooses songs that he knows my son will enjoy, while at the same time appropriately challenging; making the overall experience fantastic. I would recommend Justin to anyone interested in playing the drums.
Very Nice experience. Mr. Josh is a best teacher I met. We had a lot of fun, the lessons were so good, and I learned a lot from his class
Starting drum lessons with Jeffrey and it was such a comfortable first lesson! He is laid back, down to earth, personable, and patient! I look forward to learning more with him!
I have never touched a drum until I started working with Laura and she has taught me so much in as little as 3 weeks. She is very enthusatic about drumming and sets goals for me to follow and work towards. I always look forward to my lessons with her as she makes it fun and a great learning experience! Thanks Laura!!
Sam has been a wonderful teacher and mentor to my son over the last 2 years. The lesson goes beyond just music. Sam's ability to relate to children and his love for his craft excites engages whomever he teaches. He instills confidence and gentle guidance while engaging in lessons that allow kids to build upon their music week to week. I would highly recommend Sam for his professionalism, talent and his values.
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.
I am a beginner in my mid 30s. I've had 3 lessons for guitar so far with George and have learned a lot. Very knowledgeable (Theory, reading music, tab, etc..), patient, helpful, and teaches well. Shows up on time and is communicative. Excited to continue to learn more! Highly recommend!
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!
Mike is a fantastic instructor - really breaks down the fundamentals for beginners in a very easy to understand way. I would definitely recommend 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.
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.
Great communication, respect, knowledge and punctuality
Ben has a good teaching style that works for me. What the path to accomplishment is and how what we're doing today contributes to that/fits into the big picture.
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!
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.
I am a professional drummer with over 20 years of teaching experience. House calls are available for all levels, from beginner to professional. I am patient. I have a fun and relaxed approach.
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 40s. 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 students 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, thats fine as well. I just might try incorporating the methods above in a more suitable way for that specific individual.
