I went for my first drum lesson with Mike. He's really relaxed and a great teacher! Had a great experience.

I've been taking lessons with Tad for a few weeks now and I've been loving it! I came in as a total novice and Tad has helped with my confidence and technique as a drummer. His lessons are always very thorough and he's been patient with all of my questions, making sure that I understand all of the material :)

The drum lessons I've taken with John over the last few years have been invaluable to my drumming, whether it's solo in the studio or playing with others on stage. I had just started to play when we began lessons, working with stick control and timing. John provides an encouraging, positive atmosphere to build skills in technique and efficiency, and outlines practices and exercises to do on my own outside of the lessons. He also introduced me to essential warm up stretches and exercises, which are very handy for endurance or just ensuring I don't wear down too quickly while playing. John's lessons have been paramount to my goal of collaborating and performing with other musicians; I've advanced greatly since I first began studying with him. Highly recommended if you're just starting to play (as I was) or to fine tune your methods and learn something new if you've already been playing a while!

I had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!

Marco was very patient with me when teaching me the drums for the first time. I was definitely hesitant trying a new instrument but he has a lot of experience in both drums and piano and was able to help me read music and actually hold the sticks properly! I recommend him if you are thinking about learning the drums!

I have been taking lessons with Michael Winnicki for about a year now. He is an expert player to say the least! His examples and techniques on teaching are very effective. He is very clear with his instruction and lays everything out so a true understanding can be reached. I have learned so many things in a only a short while! He pays close attention to articulation and stresses musical nuances. Michael is very friendly, and seems to truly care about my progress. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any style of drumming. He is an expert in jazz, rock, dance, funk, and classical. He has even given me lessons on the marimba!

I am a 55yo retiree. I decided to peruse drum lessons now that I have time. I’ve always loved the drums since I was a kid. Im not a tech savvy person but I managed to link up with Jim through thumbtack. I could not be more pleased. He is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He is very patient and very knowledgeable in percussion’s. The lessons are a lot of fun. I would highly recommend JIm as a drum teacher whether your just starting out as young person or you just want a hobby as an older person.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Scott for about 2 1/2 years. I love that he comes to our home and I also love being able to hear how the lesson is progressing. Scott is a patient and talented instructor, he makes her feel good when she does something well and he keeps her focused as they review things she has trouble with. We are very pleased!

Gene DiGeranimo is an amazingly talented drummer who has a passion for his music as well as his students. My son has been his student since he was six years old. He is now 18 and is still taking drum lessons with Gene. Gene has become more like family and we love him. Everyone I refer to him always raves about him. He retains his students for many years because of his professionalism, dedication and love.

    Jonathan is a very knowledgable music teacher-for such a long time I was searching for a teacher that could relate to me and my personal style-it was his drum expertise that I was looking for and he delivered the goods. I've been playing drums for sometime now and it was great to work with someone as patient and down to earth. He really related to me and understood when I explained what I was looking for. He threw me some classic Zep-John Bonham style techniques and taught me more bass style combinations that I was missing in my library of music. Taught me some great stuff. After the lesson I enjoyed putting on tefillin. I might start guitar lessons in September. I Chai'ly recommend Jonathan Kahanovitch-School of Rock-The Best!-Adam Bazell

      I bring not only a background as a musician but also as an educator to each lesson. I make sure to assess not only each students technical ability but also their learning style. This allows me to approach each new concept in the way that works for the student and uses the students' learning style to find their voice as a musician.

      In my ukulele, guitar, and drum jam classes, curious beginners can pick up a new instrument in a fun, creative environment with an experienced teacher. Private and group lessons are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians. Hybrid lessons are also available, meaning students can choose to combine instruments in a private class (ex: guitar and voice). The students will learn the following: * Basic musical concepts (pitch, rhythm, timing, scales, chords, harmony) * Fun songs and riffs * New styles of world music * Simple strumming patterns * Common rhythms from around the world * Easy fingerpicking techniques * Basic music theory * How to accompany other musicians Students can try making their own songs and much more! I hope to see you jammin' to some new tunes soon! The Teacher: Andrew Salamanca has experience with a variety of world music styles, and he hopes to share this knowledge with his students. He also has 15 years of musical experience and 7 years of teaching experience. He has learned to play 10 instruments, including 2 traditional Chinese instruments. He has performed with a number of international musicians in both the United States and Taiwan.

          About

          The Al Miller Drum School has been in existence for over 5 decades. It is an easy program to follow and has provided it's students with the tools needed to understand rhythm and technique. The system is based on Al's proven instructional method begun in 1951. Many of today's most well-known drummers have studied the Miller drum system, including Billy Cobham, Greg Bissenette and Rod Morgenstein, to name just a few. Even the great Buddy Rich recognized the value of his system and asked my father to teach him to read music. Since my father's passing in 2000, I've been expanding his method and personalizing it for the modern drummer.
