Gail is an amazing and gifted teacher! My 16 year old son has been taking drum lessons with Gail since he was 6 years old and it has been remarkable to witness his continued improvement. He joined the band in Elementary School and has continued through his High School years. More importantly, my son has maintained a passion for playing the drums which has been directly influenced by his lessons with Gail, who is observably passionate about her own connection to music. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a music teacher.
Joe provided a group drum lesson of which I was a part. He was friendly, clear in his instruction, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drum lessons.
Chris can teach both drums (drum kit) and various percussion instruments (tympani, tuned percussion, etc.). I am taking lessons from Chris mainly to learn basic rock drumming on a standard drum kit. He is a wonderful teacher. He'll give you valuable lessons not only on playing the drum kit, but also on good drumming fundamentals, such as proper stick grip, how to position your hands on the stick, and stick control, speed and independence. He will also instruct you in good habits and tips for practicing the drums between lessons. I very highly recommend Chris as a drum and percussion teacher.
My girl friend got me drum lessons for Xmas. She went on line and decided to go with Nick. I'm glad she did..I've only had 2 lessons so far and have enjoyed going to them..Nick has a lot of patience which is good for teaching .He also doesn't push you and let's you go at your speed which is nice... I'm 56 and I always wanted to learn how to play the drums.. I've play a lot of sports and like being challenged. This is a new challenge for me and I'm enjoying Nick, teaching me and looking forward to more lesson.., I would highly recommend Nick, for lessons..
He's a pretty good drum teacher and is very good at teaching
Sean is a very talented guitarist and drummer. He truly helped me learn the important techniques of drumming, while encouraging me to develop my own style. He was easy to work with and very patient. Not to mention a crazy good player! I felt like a got way more than my money's worth. A true professional, with a supportive approach.
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 love working with Rowen....so much that I came back. I took lessons with her for about 6 years and than took a 3 1/2 year break & came back. I couldn't be happier...I learn so much from her!! She has wonderful advice about life in general, very talented, and so kind. She is one of the sweetest & most patient women you will ever meet. She takes her time in the lesson, and devotes the time to her student. She is willing to go over a piece that you are working on as many times as you need to. She has patience. She has a beautiful voice. She is very helpful and makes reading music seem easy! She is very organized with her teaching, it may seem like baby steps but it is all worth it. You have to start with the basics no matter what instrument you play! Rowen is great, I use to play in her recitals she held once every year. Those were wonderful, she really knows how to make her students feel like a star. Worth every penny!!!!
Jason Martin is a thoughtful dedicated musician who has a great teaching style. He is always prepared, professional and patient. His drive to better himself while pushing others is what is truly special about Mr.Martin. He has been playing for over 20 years and it shows. He is comfortable teaching Metallica as well as Scruggs. He has an amazing selection of instruments so you can try different tunings or stringed instruments. He has you work on pieces of your interest right away, which keeps you engaged. I do not think you could find a better teacher anywhere.
Eli is the best guitar teacher I have ever come across. Outside of his one of a kind performance style he has a teaching style that has helped me TREMENDOUSLY by catering the lessons to EXACTLY where I am "at" on the instrument. His demeanor is warm, thoughtful, and engaging. I can't recommend him enough!!!
I hired Nick a few months ago to teach me the drums, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a teacher. He is always on time and is flexible, which helps me when my schedule becomes clustered. Nick always has each lesson planned, and I learn something new each time we meet. Most importantly, he is a cool guy and makes playing the drums fun! I look forward to working with Nick into the future! -Phil C.
Drum teaching. Tim has instructed my son Nate (12 years old) for almost 2 years...in that time Nate has made incredible progress......even his school band instructor comments on his improvement. Tim keeps him motivated and is willing to go out of his way to give lessons at our house when we have scheduling conflicts. I couldn't ask for a better teacher for my son.
Both my daughters took guitar lessons with Wes. Hands down he is the one of best in the area. Wes has the ability to reach anyone at any level and brings out the absolute best in them. He listens to the individual student and understands their needs and desires to help bring out their personal best. Wes is versatile and talented and we were fortunate to know Wes and be taught by such a consummate professional. He relates well to any age level and doesn't push his music repertoire/agenda onto his students but gives them the opportunity to explore their style and genre of music freely. I highly recommend this fine and talented musician and teacher!!
I'm a touring and recording pro for over 30 years. I've played for some of the biggest Marque names in music.
Tom Dest has been teaching music consecutively for 27 years to private individuals and groups. This includes lessons to beginners, intermediate and advanced students on drumset, vibraphone and marimba. Tom also teaches hand drums, music composition, music theory and recording engineering. Some places Tom where has given lessons are Trinity College, Hartford Academy of the Performing Arts, various public school percussion programs, Dynamic Percussion, Creative Music, and presently, at Varela Music. The cost for lessons is $22.00 per half hour. Why are lessons with Tom so inexpensive while most other teachers and studios are charging more but have less experience? With our present economy, most prices for every thing are on the rise. Tom simply does not want to follow suit; thats all. Thanks, Tom P.S. I do not accept any kind of pre-payment via mail or electronic transfer for lessons.
Our teaching philosophy is to instill a love of music through inspiration. Along with several years of teaching and performance experience, as well as successfully clearing a background check, Musika teachers are also graduates from reputable domestic and international conservatories, colleges, and universities. Musika Music Lessons takes time and consideration in pairing each student with a professional music educator that will help develop an understanding of all fundamental principles in music. We are happy to accomodate each student with any special requests that they may have.
I believe in honesty and integrity. I believe in giving 100%.
I provide beginner and intermediate drum lessons in all genres and styles. I focus on groove and technique rather than reading or charts.
I get excited when my student is able to grasp the rhythm and feel the beat. Music is a feeling.
I have taught kids swim lessons before, and I am certified by Red Cross with a lifeguarding and water safety certificate, as well as CPR and First Aid training/ certificates. I have also given Piano and Voice lessons before and will be attending music school in the fall for opera studies to further broaden my studies in music. I am not just opera based, although that is the best thing for my voice. I also teach jazz, pop, and healthy musical singing! Singing should be something that is always fun, and freeing, so why not learn how to do it in the most comfortable, fun, and healthy way possible? As a teacher, I will recognize what my client would like to work on (whether it be a style of music, music history, music theory, or even basic piano lessons), while hopefully providing valid insight on how to really engage one's voice healthily. Voice lessons are very affordable (first 30 minute session free). Although I have given voice lessons at a regular rate before, I really would like the opportunity to meet new people and hopefully help them explore the amazing opportunities and fun times that go along with singing!
