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 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.

I was searching for a vocal coach with specific qualifications and I found her through Reverb Lessons. The website is easy to use and has many functional tools to assist the learning experience. The site professionals are very helpful and attentive to questions and concerns. Without its help I would still be searching for a vocal coach or overpaying for one that is not ideal. Thank you Reverb lessons!

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.
