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.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
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.
I have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
Excellent teacher, with such a broad knowledge of drumming styles. He teaches me to hear rhythms melodically, in ways that I never did before. His teaching has started to change my approach to the instrument. I highly recommend Phil's drum lessons.
On time and great lesson for beginners. We booked last minute n he was accommodating
I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.
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.
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!
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 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.
I am a jazz vocalist and have been taking Music Theory & Musicianship lessons with Paolo for the past 4 months. In that time I have felt my understanding of music fundamentals strengthen significantly; Paolo has offered consistent explanation of practical use for these skills when performing and has mapped out the curriculum according to my particular needs. I feel much more confident on stage as a result and look forward to continuing lessons with him. Paolo's flexibility in his teaching, in depth knowledge, and concern for his students' growth make me highly recommend him as an instructor.
I have known Joe Huster for the past 3 years. Joe has been my sons drum instructor and mentor. Joe works extremely well with kids and can be trusted. If anyone needs a reference regarding Joe, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Lieutenant Michael Bergbauer Union City Police Department NJ
Great place, great music teachers, my son (6) goes there twice a week, 1 for Keboards, 1 for Drum lessons.
I've had a lot of drum lessons from top players in NYC. Guy stands out to me because of his professionalism and work ethic. He shows up on time and I always look forward to our lessons.
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.
Ms. Patrice is an excellent teacher. She is patient with beginners and she is encouraging. I came to Ms. Patrice for tap and salsa and I had so much fun! She is an outstanding teacher.
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.
His is an outstanding drummer and he taught me so much I am so glad to be able to get in touch with him.
Kyle is tuned to your needs and will provide for a fun and efficient learning experience! He's punctual, and resourceful when it comes to helping you with your various learning difficulties.
