I went for my first drum lesson with Mike. He's really relaxed and a great teacher! Had a great experience.
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.
My son enjoys learning from Mr. Danor. He is not rigid in his teachings, but very flexible. He shows patience and caters his lesson to the actual drummers skill set. Drum lessons are fun for my son and that brings a smile to my face.
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
Aaron is an incredible drum teacher!! I've taken five lessons with him, and I always leave the lesson feeling great about how much I've learned. I am a slow learner, and not only was Aaron very patient with me, he helped me along much quicker than I could have expected. Five Stars!!!
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!
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!
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.
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.
I began studying drums with Tony about 20 years ago when I was 9 years old. His musical and teaching expertise helped to lay a foundation for me that I owe a lot to. I ended up studying jazz guitar at a university world-renowned for its jazz program and a big part of what got me there was my understanding of rhythm and how to practice effectively - all of which I attribute to my formative years studying with Tony. I had the benefit of working with a number of renowned musicians and educators during my time in college (Mulgrew Miller, Harold Mabern, Gene Bertoncini, Vic Juris, and more) and Tony is one of the best teachers I’ve come across. I’ve since resumed my drum studies with Tony and I am seeing great results. He has a ton of ways to work on building coordination and ways to creatively apply the material so that you develop your own voice as a drummer. He has an incredibly vast knowledge of drums, rhythm and different styles. Tony is an outstanding drummer and educator and his personality and sense of humor make the lessons a great time. If you are serious about your musicianship and want to take your drumming to the highest level, study with Tony!
Very knowledgable about his craft and conveys that knowledge well. Super nice, chill guy too! So lessons are fun and not stressful but are still informative
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.
In my ukulele, guitar, and drum jam classes, curious beginners can pick up a new instrument in a fun, creative environment with an experienced teacher. Private and group lessons are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians. Hybrid lessons are also available, meaning students can choose to combine instruments in a private class (ex: guitar and voice). The students will learn the following: * Basic musical concepts (pitch, rhythm, timing, scales, chords, harmony) * Fun songs and riffs * New styles of world music * Simple strumming patterns * Common rhythms from around the world * Easy fingerpicking techniques * Basic music theory * How to accompany other musicians Students can try making their own songs and much more! I hope to see you jammin' to some new tunes soon! The Teacher: Andrew Salamanca has experience with a variety of world music styles, and he hopes to share this knowledge with his students. He also has 15 years of musical experience and 7 years of teaching experience. He has learned to play 10 instruments, including 2 traditional Chinese instruments. He has performed with a number of international musicians in both the United States and Taiwan.
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.
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.
Not only will you learn how to play an instrument, but very soon after learning the basics we will get into actual musicianship. If the student is a child, I would strongly suggest that a parent sit in on the lesson so that they know what I am teaching and will be able to help with practice at home.
Shawn Crowder offers drum lessons in NYC and online drum lessons on Skype. He is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, and a regular guest faculty member at the Berklee Percussion Festival.
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.
