Drum lesson for a total beginner - and Mike was terrific: kind, reassuring, extremely knowledgable. He had me playing to Hey, Jude before the session was over. And maybe above all, he made the whole experience lots of fun.

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

I am just beginning to learn how to play the drums as an adult for the first time. With in just a few months Tad has given me many tools to make strides toward feeling like a real drummer. The lessons are really fun as well as challenging. He pushes you to break beyond what you feel you are capable of. Awesome lessons, as well as super professional and in a comfortable cool studio. I am excited to see how far I will go with the help of Tad!

Kevin was my first drum teacher. He was a close friend of my twin older brothers in the neighborhood growing up. The first time he ever took me seriously is when I walked up to him and said, "I'm going to become a drummer. I need you to teach me." His response: "Be at my house at 7:00 pm Monday night." During that first drum lesson, Kevin would not let me leave until I understood what an eighth note was. That was three intense hours later. I never forgot what an eighth note was. As his roommate at PIT in Hollywood, California, I watched Kevin become PERCUSSIONIST OF THE YEAR. As an Honors graduate myself, trust me when I tell you, he is the ELITE-Special-Forces in drumming! In teaching, Kevin is among the best of the best. I learned from Kevin, and then I learned from the best of the best...They're the same breed. You get what you pay for in life, in playing, teaching, and studio sessions, Kevin is not overcharging. I’ve been a music Producer for the past twelve years…and I hire him! You should too.

Liv had the most wonderful experience with her first year of learning the ukulele. She loved her instructor and is now playing some great songs. We can't wait to continue and even get into guitar lessons as well!

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!

Sam is an excellent drum instructor! I have been playing drums most of life and have taken lessons from many teachers. But none have been as instrumental as Sam in propelling my drumming skills to new heights. Whether in-person or via Skype, Sam's lessons are effective, professional, and responsive.

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!

Eugene’s Music Studio is one of the most professional & kind music studios we had the honor to work with. My son is so excited and cannot wait for his piano lessons. The teacher was able to keep him busy and involved throughout the entire session (not an easy task) and she always comes up with new ways for him to stay involved. We are very happy that we found Eugene's Music Studio. Eugene was very attuned and helped us find the best fit for our child and we look forward to seeing the progress he will make with time.

This dude is amazing, he's crazy talented with the drums and has a lot of patience with kids. My 9 year old son has been going to him through out the summer time and he as been teaching him the basics of drumming (of course). He even started teaching my son how to read music. He is reasonably priced, his spot is a little small and dark but hey it works. When you meet him tell him to play a little something he'll definitely impress you!

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.

This is definitely the place to come for top music instruction. As a drummer, Joe has taught me so much and is continuing to teach me more and more during each lesson. In Joe's studio; he's got sound activated lights, smoke and bubble machines, you can play along to RockBand (which is my favorite). For Joe, the sky is the limit. Always thinking of ways for his students to exceed their expectations of music instruction. I've been a student of Joe's for 10 years and he's always having new ideas to make his lesson more enjoyable. Joe's staff is always full of energy! His staff are dedicated to their students and is a lot of fun to jam out with them. The receptionist is great to get along with always helping the students rearrange their lesson to what better suits the student. Joe's one of a kind showcase is always put together with flawless detail! Reasonable rates. But, this is definitely the place to come to for top music instruction; for all ages!! Keep on Jammin' !!!

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.

As a beginner I was really struggling with getting the hang of playing such a difficult and focus-oriented instrument. Even though I am a musician and can read music, the practical aspect really got to me. Batu really helped me get through that and with a lot of patience and professionalism he inspired me to use my creativity and not lose my determination. He really made me want to continue on this journey. He is super understanding and patient and highlighted how fun learning drums actually is. I definitely recommend him to any body who wants to improve and learn to play drums in many styles. His kit is also super nice 😊

About

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.
