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!
David is a great drum teacher. He has a very practical approach, focusing on fundamentals as well as applying those skills in real-life situations. Highly recommended!
Terrance is an all around good hearted person and this is what he brings to his piano lessons. Personalized study and lots of fun.
Having drum lessons with Zak was an amazing experience for me; I love the way how Zak dictates his class and how he can make you feel truly conected with the instrument. Also is awesome the patience he has, and the good vibes emanating from him all the time.
Jamie, my daughter, loves her guitar lessons with Pierre. Jamie cannot stop talking about how much she has learned from her lessons. She loves showing off her new guitar skills!
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!
Daryl is extremely good and gentle with my young child's emotionally and physically (& he is extremely active) while at the same time balancing that with being serious and firm. He is creative with his lesson plans tailoring them to my child's age, personality, favorite songs and knowledge base. My son loves going 'to see Mr. Daryl to play drums'. Daryl even provides homework and teaches my child each component of the drums... Which my son can name and he is only 3. My family just brought my son his own set of drums so he can continue to practice regularly.
No reason in the world you should not take drum lessons with Jon. He is very encouraging for improvement, patient, and energetic when it comes to progress. All around great guy too!
He was great at explaining things. I took lessons with him for a few months and I enjoyed it
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.
I took lessons with Pablo about three years ago and at that time I was mostly self-taught, never having formal lessons before. I was a punk rock drummer so I was caught very off guard when Pablo wanted to teach me Afro-Cuban patterns. He took me way out of my element with these grooves I had never seen before. While challenging at first, he really helped me through it by writing the patterns out for me and showing them to me again and again...and again. Pablo helped make me into a more well-rounded drummer and I still recommend him today. Friendly, personal, and a teacher who really knows what he's doing; be sure to give him a call.
I've had a lot of drum lessons from top players in NYC. Guy stands out to me because of his professionalism and work ethic. He shows up on time and I always look forward to our lessons.
I had several lessons in basic theory with Andy. He provided learning materials to meet me at my level - elementary, compared to his advanced level. A good listener, Andy not only taught me the foundational elements I was looking for -- he also gave me insights into learning and practicing I didn't know I needed ::: Andy, imo, is a hugely talented, multi-disciplined, musician who has the capacity to educate, as well as compose/entertain.
Jack makes everything fun and easy to learn. I’ve been going to his lessons for 4 months, yet it feels like it’s been longer because of the improvement and how well he connects with everyone. He is incredibly talented and has years of experience and knowledge of drums. I love his lessons and I would definitely reccoment him to anyone interested in learning.
Jay is the best!! I have absolutely no rhythm, but I needed to learn three songs on the drums and somehow - quite magically - made it work. He's patient and kind and smart and funny and, best of all, seriously knows his stuff. We had a blast and I totally rocked out!! I 100% recommend Jay without reservation.
A professional drummer and drum teacher will be happy to share his knowledge with interested people. Dmitry is a winner of national drum contests in Europe, as well as a performer of innumerable bands in Europe and USA.
I used to play in a metal band called "Emmure" for 5 years. I have the knowledge it takes to help you advance your music career, not only on a playing level, but on a business level as well.
I teach all styles of drums (rock, jazz, Latin, hip-hop, etc.). I also teach drum techniques and how to read music. I have an associate's degree in music theory and percussion.
I am a professional drummer. I've toured around the world and have learned from drummers like Carmine Appice, Chris Coleman, Thomas Lang, Zoro and many others. I currently play with two groups (Whyte Planes and January Jane) which take up most of my time, but I enjoy teaching and educating aspiring drummers.
