Introduction: Come play some drums! learn through practical experience and play along to your favorite songs right from the start. I'm a Berklee and NEC graduate, a hard worker, and I demand the same thing from my students. I have lots of experience both in playing and in teaching different styles, and I look forward to sharing my passion with you. I guarantee progress from lesson to lesson, and I'm honest and open with my students. Release yourself from limitations such as - technique, concentration and focus issues, bad physical and mental habits. We will work on all these through exercises and playing with music. I teach student of levels, ages 9 and above so don't be shy. Hit me up! I know English, Hebrew, and some Spanish.

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!

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    bachelor's from Berklew College of music, masters from New England Conservatory

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've been playing since I was 14, always loved it. I only started playing professionally in my 20's but teaching has always been something I really loved doing and I take as seriously as I do performing. I love going through the process of discovering what makes you tick and how to help you discover the wonderful things I've been taught or discovered on my own.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with kids and adults ranging all ages, but I primarily focus on ages 9-80. I find that younger kids are just not big enough physically for the instrument, but there are always exceptions. I take complete beginners, intermediate students. advanced and professionals. we all have something we want to work on and improve, including me.
