I went for my first drum lesson with Mike. He's really relaxed and a great teacher! Had a great experience.
I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
I am just beginning to learn how to play the drums as an adult for the first time. With in just a few months Tad has given me many tools to make strides toward feeling like a real drummer. The lessons are really fun as well as challenging. He pushes you to break beyond what you feel you are capable of. Awesome lessons, as well as super professional and in a comfortable cool studio. I am excited to see how far I will go with the help of Tad!
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
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!
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
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 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
He was great at explaining things. I took lessons with him for a few months and I enjoyed it
Been with NWMA for almost 5 years. Best thing that ever happened to my daughter. She takes Guitar, Violin, Piano and Voice lessons. More than just a music school, they have become extended family! Dedicated teachers, amazing recitals and more than reasonable prices. Wouldn't change a thing!
Daryl is extremely good and gentle with my young child's emotionally and physically (& he is extremely active) while at the same time balancing that with being serious and firm. He is creative with his lesson plans tailoring them to my child's age, personality, favorite songs and knowledge base. My son loves going 'to see Mr. Daryl to play drums'. Daryl even provides homework and teaches my child each component of the drums... Which my son can name and he is only 3. My family just brought my son his own set of drums so he can continue to practice regularly.
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.
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!!!
Matt got a very good connection with my two kids trough music, he is very knowledgeable and knows a lot about all kind of music. My kids loved Matt from the first session and looking forward to the next.
Teo is an amazing drum instructor. Knowledgeable, reliable and professional. Can't ask for more.
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.
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!
I aim to help people learn with good techniques. I am desirable, reliable and dependable. I aim to make my students the best in the world.
If you want to hire an instructor who is a working professional musician as well as an accomplished teacher, look no further! Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, I can help bring your musicianship to the next level and give you real world advice on being a musician. I've been a professional percussionist in NYC for the past 4 years playing Broadway shows, orchestral concerts in Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, & Carnegie Hall, and with over 40 different bands of various styles including rock, pop, hip-hop, Latin, folk, African, and many more. I've also played with big name artists such as Kansas, Casting Crowns, Questlove, Andrew W.K. & Steven Curtis Chapman, among others. Last year, I toured Italy twice playing drums for 75 concerts in 3 months. I have a Master's in Percussion Performance, marched with Boston Crusaders Drum Corps, and have taught over 80 private students as well as drumlines at 6 High Schools in the past 10 years. I will also be one of the percussionists for Disney's Candlelight Orchestra at Epcot this December. (For more of my credentials, please check out my linkedin.com/in/brianradock) My parents have been professional drummers/percussionists for over 30 years with Disney and many acclaimed artists. My mother had a very successful teaching career here in Orlando before she relocated as the percussion professor at Rollins College and private instructor for over 80 students in Middle/High School. My step-father is the drum set professor at UNF in Jacksonville. Between their instruction throughout my development and my own professional experience, I can teach you how to play any percussion instrument, read music at a high level, AND how to find work as a musician in the future! If you want to play drums as a hobby, that sounds great too! I cater to each students needs instead of teaching the same syllabus I'm very easy-going, upbeat, and patient in my teaching methods. After all, music should be fun right? If you have a Middle School or High School student, I can prepare them for Solo & Ensemble with a library of hundreds of pieces or for drumline/drum corps auditions. I can also prepare students looking to be music majors/minors in college. I just recently moved back to Orlando, which is my hometown, so I am ready to build my teaching studio back up to what it once was ASAP. I look forward to meeting you and playing some music! (I am still working out details to have a studio space to teach out of, but can drive to you for lessons at your home or at your school. Will update this page once I have a studio space.)
