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!

A Julliard Grad, Sam Ruttenberg is an extremely versatile teacher in both the jazz and classical fields. A student who wishes to be well rounded will be a perfect match for Sam. Although I have only studied primarily drumset with him, he has incorporated classical concepts into my playing and vice versa which has made me become an overall stronger player. Not only is he a jack of all trades, but he is also an entrepreneur. His bestselling drum product, the Hingestix, are sold all over the world. For anyone who is just picking up drumsticks should check his product out. Whether you are just trying to get better at the drums or considering having a musical career, Sam teaches students of all ages and gives back to the drumming community as much as he can.

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’ve had many hours of enlightening conversation with Marco about music. He has helped me to re-shape my musical paradigm many times. He has helped me to expand my rhythmic, harmonic and melodic vocabulary. He has also shared with me some fascinating rhythmic concepts that have helped me to feel more confident in my exploration of rhythm. I would recommend his expertise to any serious student of jazz and percussion.

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.

I am a jazz vocalist and have been taking Music Theory & Musicianship lessons with Paolo for the past 4 months. In that time I have felt my understanding of music fundamentals strengthen significantly; Paolo has offered consistent explanation of practical use for these skills when performing and has mapped out the curriculum according to my particular needs. I feel much more confident on stage as a result and look forward to continuing lessons with him. Paolo's flexibility in his teaching, in depth knowledge, and concern for his students' growth make me highly recommend him as an instructor.

    Charlie is the best.. Because of his formation at the New School for Jazz, the exercise/practice assignments that he gave me were very diverse and professional. I never felt judged but I felt challenged. I am so happy I got to study with Charlie.

    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.
