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.
I've been taking lessons with Tad for a few weeks now and I've been loving it! I came in as a total novice and Tad has helped with my confidence and technique as a drummer. His lessons are always very thorough and he's been patient with all of my questions, making sure that I understand all of the material :)
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.
Terrance is an all around good hearted person and this is what he brings to his piano lessons. Personalized study and lots of fun.
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.
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
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!

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 am a 55yo retiree. I decided to peruse drum lessons now that I have time. I’ve always loved the drums since I was a kid. Im not a tech savvy person but I managed to link up with Jim through thumbtack. I could not be more pleased. He is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. He is very patient and very knowledgeable in percussion’s. The lessons are a lot of fun. I would highly recommend JIm as a drum teacher whether your just starting out as young person or you just want a hobby as an older person.
This dude is amazing, he's crazy talented with the drums and has a lot of patience with kids. My 9 year old son has been going to him through out the summer time and he as been teaching him the basics of drumming (of course). He even started teaching my son how to read music. He is reasonably priced, his spot is a little small and dark but hey it works. When you meet him tell him to play a little something he'll definitely impress you!
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.

I've been taking drum lessons with Thomas for a year and I have really improvedmy playing. He's an excellent teacher!
He was great at explaining things. I took lessons with him for a few months and I enjoyed it
As the drummer in my funk band, Middle Blue, Mike provides both an airtight rhythmic foundation and a sense of adventure. In other words, the beat is always concrete, but never *too* straight. He's always doing something interesting or mysterious with it. Also, he's full of surprises. Just the other day, he threw a rhythmic idea at me that I hadn't heard from him, and we've been playing together for over a year. If I were a drummer, I'd be excited to take lessons with Mike.
Greg is a great percussion teacher. My daughter just started her lessons (drum set) with him (age 14), and she is learning a lot in just the first few lessons. She also performed in his recital at the end of last year. He is flexible with scheduling sessions and has provided a lot of information on after school activities. Greg also helped us pick out the right electronic drum set, so we didn't buy equipment that we didn't need. My daughter is having a lot of fun as Greg makes sure she learns the basics, but also is playing along with some of her favorite songs from the radio.
Connor took my 3 yr old on as a drumming student and was very helpful, patient and engaging. He is an awesome musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
James is the best drummer I've worked with! He is passionate and knows his stuff. He is also never EVER late. He's the best.
