I went for my first drum lesson with Mike. He's really relaxed and a great teacher! Had a great experience.
I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
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.
Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.
We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.
Chris Tibaldi gave both of my sons drum lessons for many years throughout elementary, middle school and high school. My sons had several drum instructors before we found Chris and they wish they had him from the start. He was by far the most talented drummer and teacher out of all of them, and always came prepared with a lesson to teach them if they did not have requests to learn a song or have something for school. They each grew so much as people and musicians because of Chris. My oldest son, already an advanced drummer, learned so much from Chris, who can teach and develop both beginners and advanced drummers. We could not have asked for a better instructor. My sons loved getting drum lessons from Chris and looked forward to their lesson each week. Chris is an outstanding drum instructor, who is extremely talented. Because of Chris's exceptional instruction both of my sons did NYSSMA, were selected for All County numerous times, went on to play in college and were even selected to be the drum major. If you are looking for someone to teach you or your child the value of music, particularly drums and percussion, there is no one better than Chris Tibaldi for the job.
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.
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
I have to say Terrence is an excellent teacher of music. Very patient, and can make a beginner feel confident in his or her potential. I look forward to taking additional lessons. Thanks a lot Terrence!
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.
Dustin has been giving my 7 year old drum lessons for 2 years, he's great with my son, patient, talented and always on time. I can't recommend him high enough!
I've been taking drum lessons with Thomas for a year and I have really improvedmy playing. He's an excellent teacher!
My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!
John is hands down a great drum instructor. He was very patient and attentive with me, especially since I had never had formal music training before. Now I really look forward to practicing! Highly recommended.
Jim is the first drum teacher I've had and I can't imagine a better introduction to drums and different beats than the one he's provided! He is very professional and accommodating, comes prepared to your lessons, and even makes sure you have practice material in between lessons. He's clearly very experienced with the instrument, and is an amazing teacher :)
I didn't know what to expect being a first time thumbtack user but I couldn't be happier. Rob was great and my son is SUPER EXCITED to continue learning the drums. Great experience, and we intend to continue lessons.
Passionate about what she does ! Will take her time to teach you until you get it right as well as motivate you even further to keep learning. I recommend her for anyone with the desire to truly learn.
Josh Roberts is the reason I am still in music today. He taught me when I was just beginning on drums and he gave me the best skills and insights on music I've ever received. He is a natural teacher and knows exactly what to say in order for the student to understand. He is the only drum teacher I've had because I never needed another one after I took lessons from him.
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.

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.

If you want to hire an instructor who is a working professional musician as well as an accomplished teacher, look no further! Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, I can help bring your musicianship to the next level and give you real world advice on being a musician. I've been a professional percussionist in NYC for the past 4 years playing Broadway shows, orchestral concerts in Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, & Carnegie Hall, and with over 40 different bands of various styles including rock, pop, hip-hop, Latin, folk, African, and many more. I've also played with big name artists such as Kansas, Casting Crowns, Questlove, Andrew W.K. & Steven Curtis Chapman, among others. Last year, I toured Italy twice playing drums for 75 concerts in 3 months. I have a Master's in Percussion Performance, marched with Boston Crusaders Drum Corps, and have taught over 80 private students as well as drumlines at 6 High Schools in the past 10 years. I will also be one of the percussionists for Disney's Candlelight Orchestra at Epcot this December. (For more of my credentials, please check out my linkedin.com/in/brianradock) My parents have been professional drummers/percussionists for over 30 years with Disney and many acclaimed artists. My mother had a very successful teaching career here in Orlando before she relocated as the percussion professor at Rollins College and private instructor for over 80 students in Middle/High School. My step-father is the drum set professor at UNF in Jacksonville. Between their instruction throughout my development and my own professional experience, I can teach you how to play any percussion instrument, read music at a high level, AND how to find work as a musician in the future! If you want to play drums as a hobby, that sounds great too! I cater to each students needs instead of teaching the same syllabus I'm very easy-going, upbeat, and patient in my teaching methods. After all, music should be fun right? If you have a Middle School or High School student, I can prepare them for Solo & Ensemble with a library of hundreds of pieces or for drumline/drum corps auditions. I can also prepare students looking to be music majors/minors in college. I just recently moved back to Orlando, which is my hometown, so I am ready to build my teaching studio back up to what it once was ASAP. I look forward to meeting you and playing some music! (I am still working out details to have a studio space to teach out of, but can drive to you for lessons at your home or at your school. Will update this page once I have a studio space.)
