Scott has taught my son drums for the last 4 years. Scott was exactly what we were looking for in a drum teacher! He is always patient, enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable in teaching my son! My son looks forward to every lesson, and leaves with a bigger smile then when he entered! I have and would recommend Scott to anyone who is looking to take drum lessons. After these four years, I consider Scott a friend and not just a teacher for my son!
My son has been taking drum lessons with Jim for over 2 years and we have nothing but good things to say. Jim does a great job of teaching everything while also tailoring the lessons to your interests. Highly recommend!
My 9 year old daughter is having such a positive experience taking piano lessons from Mr. JT - He makes learning the piano FUN (so important for children) ! She has learned so much after just a few months of lessons and remains excited to practice, learn the theory behind music, and loves trying to figure out how to play her favorite songs! Having myself taken years of lessons as a child, I remember the day I got to the point when my teacher told my mom that he had taken me as far as he could and how disappointed I was. I appreciate that as my daughter improves her playing skills, she can stay with the same teacher who has so much to offer since he plays at a professional level. Exceptional!
My son started lessons with Nick 4 years ago. Nick has instilled a love of music in my son. He looks forward to his drum lessons every week and wants to be a "drummer" like his teacher when he grows up. Nick is always kind, patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in playing drums.
Fewer students make the lessons more personal and results are instant. Experience with beginner, and advanced guitarists allows me to teach an individual in a way they can understand thoroughly. My lessons and teaching strategies tend to spark excitement and a sense of accomplishment that lasts a lifetime.
I began taking lessons myself 40 years ago in a public school. It was quickly obvious that I needed to take private lessons and my father took me to meet Jimmy at Edwin's music store in Buffalo NY. I continued to play and take lessons both privately and through school right through Buffalo State.
I have studied with many and learned from them all!
33 years ago, I began to play out in the WNY area and have played with some of Buffalo's best musicians in some of the best venues and studios.
I take this 40 years of experience, and pass it along to my students.
