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 have been going to Gary for 9 years. My girls have received lessons from him in piano, drums, bass guitar and vocals. Gary is an amazing and patient teacher, but more importantly, a wonderful person and friend! I highly recommend him to anyone of any age who has a passion for music. Gary is truly a talent!
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.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
Fun drum lesson. Plus I learned a lot in only an hour. I'm going to continue taking lessons.
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!
Anthony is the reason I am finally learning guitar AND ENJOYING its addition of balance and relaxation to my life. I tried for several years with YouTube videos and one other teacher in NY, but the motivation waned. I've been excited to come to weekly lessons for 6 months with Anthony. He has an unusual combination of extreme skill and extreme humility and warmth. My parents are both professional classical musicians so even though I am a beginner in guitar I appreciate his skill. Also, they have commented that I am making great, steady progress and that the accompanying theory I am learning is very sound. Anthony is flexible, allowing me to learn the songs I want to play for my newborn and my husband, and adjusting them for my level, while working theory in between, always making it fun and laid back. I've lived in NYC 11 years and he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. This guitar teacher is a find -- a true diamond in the rough of manhattan!
Trevor is a talented instructor who has great rapport with the students. Punctual, well prepared and creative in his teaching methods it was a pleasure to have him on staff. Students loved him.
Guitar Hangar is a full-service music store, with a wide selection of instruments from beginner to high-end instruments at competitive prices. More importantly, they focus on service after the sale -- including repairs, maintenance, accessories and perhaps most importantly for new and intermediate musicians, lessons. Rick has been my go-to guy for more than 10 years, and I give him and Guitar Hangar my highest recommendation.
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.
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 has been an amazing instructor to my son and my son really values his time with him tremendously. Jim is has a great personality that kids are easily drawn to. its so important that kids feel a bond with their teachers and as drumming instructor i couldn't recommend him more. OUTSTANDING
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.
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.
His is an outstanding drummer and he taught me so much I am so glad to be able to get in touch with him.
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.
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.
The Jim Royle Drum Studio has been the leading teaching studio in CT for over 25 years. We offer private lessons on drum set and every percussion instrument, including steel drums, marimba, vibes, timpani, Latin, and African percussion. We offer percussion ensemble groups for all ages, as well as our adult steel band. The A team percussion ensemble travels nationally and internationally, just returning from a 10-day performance tour in Trinidad. We will help you reach all your drum set and percussion goals.
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.
I teach music to potential and current drum students and perform live jazz, jazz fusion, and other genres.
