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 had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!

I sing and play the drums, and have worked with Terrance in the past. I found him to be a insightful song writer, and very technical keyboard player. Our joint musical interests included all types of music, but the main two genres would have been gospel and jazz. With us, Terrence was always patient, tolerant, sharing in terms of musical knowledge, and receptive to our ideas. I always considered him to be my personal Herbie Hancock. I strongly recommend working with him, if you have the chance.

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.

Only my two older kids were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take lessons with Ryland. My older daughter had him for her rock band class. It was amazing how well he worked with this group of kids. They were inspired and morivated to learn, grow and perform. He helped transform them from individually talented musicians to a cohesive, professional sounding band in a fun, supportive environment. My son had Ryland for drums and guitar. They would work together for an hour and a half every week. Ryland had unbelievable patience and personability and was able to keep my son focused and fully engaged. The amount that he learned from Ryland about technique, theory and music is immeasurable. Although my kids have found new instructors, they miss Ryland and will forever remember the incredible impact that he had on them as musicians.

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.

I don't know where to begin, Jim is one of the best music teachers I've ever had. And I've been playing instruments for over 25 years. Jim is very knowledgeable and well-versed on percussion. He was also really patient with me which I appreciate - since it's been several years since I played drums. But I picked it back up right away with Jim's teaching and I'm really happy with the results of my lessons. I highly recommend Jim Saint-Amour as a drum instructor!

My son really enjoys his lessons with Willy. Willy is a very patient and encouraging instructor and knows how to work with a child and get him to respond. We're hoping my son sticks with drums and continues learning from Willy.

The Al Miller Drum School has been in existence for over 5 decades. It is an easy program to follow and has provided it's students with the tools needed to understand rhythm and technique. The system is based on Al's proven instructional method begun in 1951. Many of today's most well-known drummers have studied the Miller drum system, including Billy Cobham, Greg Bissenette and Rod Morgenstein, to name just a few. Even the great Buddy Rich recognized the value of his system and asked my father to teach him to read music. Since my father's passing in 2000, I've been expanding his method and personalizing it for the modern drummer.

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.
