Anita is awesome along with her music staff. They are exceptional musicians, all kind, patient and very knowledgeable in their field of music expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend them for lessons in the music field of your choice. My daughter is taking drum lessons with Dylan, who is in a band and working on his masters in music, so these teachers are very experienced people. She enjoys his lessons and learns a lot each and every time. She comes out with a smile after each lesson because she gets better and better each time.

Instructor was patient. With so few lessons, not much progress was made and the audition didn't go well.

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.

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.

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!

We just contacted Laura to start working with our daughter. Marie is 13 and was looking for guitar and singing lessons. Lauren was able to coordinate her schedule and Cassie's schedule so that Marie has a vocal lesson and guitar lesson on the same day. When we tried out both lessons went well and were fun. We right away committed to keep it this way and signed prepared paperwork. Everything was ready, well explained and very professional. Marie is looking forward to her lessons.

I've been taking guitar lessons at Page Music for over two years. They've do a great job of tailoring the instruction to my interests, abilitiy and available time as a working adult. The instructors that I have dealt have been skilled and very personable. In addition, they offer monthly jam supervised jam sessions for groups of students at several different ability levels. These are a blast. The general atmosphere is structured enough to provide a challenge, but low key and pressure free. I would highly recommend both the private lessons and jam sessions to any adult looking to begin or resume music lessons.

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.

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've only had a few lessons so far,but they've been great. He does an excellent job creating lessons to fit my interests and it's been fun, while challenging enough to push me and keep me practicing! He knows his stuff and it seems like he'd be able to design a class to suit any interest.

I took drum lessons with Jay for many years. He taught me as I was discovering rock, punk, and metal music, and really instilled in me the ability to listen to a drum track and figure out how to play it. He is a fantastic teacher, and I have to credit him with imbuing me the many skills I've acquired as a drummer. His lesson plan would span many different styles of playing, from rudiments to multi-person African beats (aimed at making your 4 limbs completely independent from one another; it was truly awesome) to very complex syncopation and layering of odd time signatures. We would often deviate from the lesson plan, too, if I found a song I wanted to learn how to play, which made it all the more welcoming. He truly cared about my experience as a student and fit his plan around my interests. I remember all of my lessons with him were always worthwhile, in that he always had something new for us to work on, and I never felt bored by the material. Jay was keen to stay on top of a piece of music if I was struggling with it, walking me through where I was slipping up, and figuring out an exercise to get whatever lesson we were working on to click with me. And it went beyond just learning how to keep a beat, knowing the different between "pp" and "ff", etc. For recitals we would work out these multi-drummer pieces that required a lot of listening and filling of space. It's hard to put into words, because a lot of it really relies on feeling, groove, etc., and now everything comes very natural to me, and I truly feel like I owe that to Jay. Anyway, if you've made it to the end of this review, there should be no question: take lessons with this man!

I've been taking drum lessons with Dave for about a year now. I gave him five stars because he's just an all around great teacher. He's always going the extra mile to make sure I fully understand each lesson, and that I know exactly what I need to do for homework. He's also very patient. When I first started I was super anxious to make mistakes which made it more difficult for me to grasp any understanding of how to play. He never makes me feel like I'm dumb or that I can't keep up. He is always challenging me to be better and that's what's made me better as a drummer and musician in general. Overall, I recommend Dave because he is a great person to learn from. Each lesson is enjoyable and fun which creates the perfect learning environment.

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.

Nick is an incredibly talented drum and a great teacher. He has a very easygoing approach to teaching and gets his point a cross while still having a lot of fun. He can show you the different rudiments and techniques and how to apply that to your playing.

      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!

      Working with Kramer is always a blast! We work for an hour once a week playing drums, and sometimes even jamming out. I've learned so much these pasts couple of months with him, and I can't wait to keep learning more.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
