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.

Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.

I sing on my church choir and noticed that I wasn't connecting to the directions of the music director. Terrence taught my son piano several years ago and was on his second year teaching my daughter. So I began taking voice lessons with Terrence and began learning how to control my breathing and protecting my vocal cords as well as learning about tone, pitch and stamina. I look forward to our next set of lessons which also fits my budget!

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

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!

Verified review

My name is Chloe Kim and I am a jazz drumming student. When I was hoping to develop drum techniques such as wrists and feet movements, a lot of Sydney local musicians recommend Oli Nelson without a moment's hesitation. From the very first lesson, Oli arrived every lesson early to warm up and be prepared for the class materials, so watching him play every time I get to the lesson, inspired me to enjoy and work harder on practicing and playing drums. During the lessons, Oli was always so generous with the compliments which encouraged me a lot, but at the same time, he challenged me enough so that I could always take things with me to work on. His general ways of explaining and answering my questions were very systematic and they were all in full detail. He also used to tell me the stories of related artists or albums to check out when I come up with certain topics or questions and that helped me immensely to not only understand but continually take a genuine interest in music. One of my favorite parts was when Oli demonstrated things on drums, as even when the tasks seemed complicated, seeing Oli playing them amazingly gave me hope and showed the possibility to be able to play them like him if I also practice hard. Overall, from my experiences, Oli has professionalism in his teaching method and I would strongly recommend to any age or level of drumming students to get lessons from him. Thanks again for all your hard works and efforts Oli, I really appreciate your passionate teaching and guidance.

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 started lessons with Anthony in December. Throughout my life I have had 3 guitar teachers before him, for as long as a year, and have never been better than I am right now (this is also in half the session time as previous teachers had me start with 1hr sessions). For the first time in my life I am confident to say "I play guitar," despite having started lessons when I was still in elementary school! His knowledge of the guitar, calm demeanour and method of teaching have me more comfortable than ever with a guitar in my hands. I'm confident transitioning between chords, as well as barre chords for the first time in my life! Oh, and now I can read music! Within the first month I was already able to start picking up and learning a few songs and now I can play most songs that I try to learn, picking up the chord progressions rather simply for most songs I attempt. Right now we are still progressing to get better each week, learning cool finger techniques and scales! After just a small time with Anthony I've developed a love and passion for playing the guitar, which has turned into an almost therapeutic experience right in the palm of my hands! Can't say enough good things about Anthony, and if your on the fence then I would say don't wait, start as soon as you can! You will be glad you did as right from day 1, Anthony will leave you amazed with what he can teach you!

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.

Verified review

I have worked with Les Cleveland on several occasions and he has always given 100%. We have worked together as sidemen (backing musicians) with artists such as international vocalist “Syleena Johnson” where he assumed the role of musical director as well as with saxophonist “Mike Phillips”. He has also been the musical director for my group. When I arrived in town, I had no worries as he’d already hired and prepped a top notch host of Berklee musicians for the concert. Needless to say, it went extremely well. In addition, while in town to perform at The Birchmere with Larry Graham, he stopped through my recording studio to lay down drum tracks for my upcoming contemporary jazz project titled “It Happened To Me”. He’s on the title cut (and others) along with, jazz keyboardist/producer - Glenn Douglass, featured international saxophonist “Michael Lington” and me. Les did a phenomenal job and I’m really looking forward to this release. A top notch professional, well prepared, talented drummer, musical director and man of God that I would recommend for any performance!!!

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.
