I have enrolled my 6 year old for violin lessons with Dolce Studio. Two Lessons and my son has taken a liking to the instrument and the teacher Ms.Emily is so encouraging & supportive. She knows how to draw out my son who can be very reluctant to try in the face of a difficult task. Thanks to the wonderful Brenda Bedell for all the initial ground work in setting up the violin teacher for us! Highly recommend the studio for music lessons.

Ben is an exceptional drum instructor. I hired him in Jan 2016 to teach my son who had no previous experience. My son has now been selected to play for 6th grade band with Ben's support and coaching. I highly recommend him! Flexible with busy schedules and VERY professional.

Chris is an awesome drum instructor. As a drummer myself, I can attest to the fact that he knows his stuff. He instructed my son, and was thorough, and professional. He was on time, and would even go long if necessary. He is great with a 7 yr old kid, and able to get the best out of someone with that attention span! We plan to have him teach again when our schedule permits.

A friend of mine referred me to Ross for drum lessons for my 13 year old son about a year ago and we have never looked back! My son has some challenging behaviors and takes longer than typical kids to learn new things but he is totally rocking out with Ross. Ross is more than just a music teacher, his passion for music and its benefits is obvious as well as his patience and understanding. He has a natural ability to relate to the needs of each student and teach at their level while pushing them forward at the right pace. My son loves learning drums and I love watching his confidence grow. I’m just thankful that we found Ross…Also, his student showcases are a blast!

Let me establish this point at the very beginning of this review: HAND DRUMMING IS FUN! I have loved music for as long as I can remember, but had no "talent" to be anything but a listener and an enthusiast. I was the proverbial, "can't-carry-a-tune-in-a-bucket" kind of person! Not until Sherry Gingras introduced me to hand drumming, did I move from WATCHING to DOING...and what a wonderful and FUN experience that has been! Hand drumming provides an amazing opportunity for non-musicians, like me, to participate in a realm of self expression and creativity that had been hidden before joining the DRUMZ group. There is something so natural and so basic about creating a drum rhythm. As dramatic as this may sound, the drum beat seems to connect the heart beat to the rhythm of Nature in a very therapeutic way. You feel re-energized after a drum session. Oh, and did I mention how much FUN it is? I haven't met a nicer, and more gentle spirit than Sherry Gingras. Her love for drumming is contagious, and the excitement she generates instills a desire in her students to BE all they can BE. It is S-O-O-O much FUN (did I already say that?). In our busy, fast-paced lives it is so easy to get out of balance and out of rhythm with LIFE. Perspective gets blurred and you end up feeling unfulfilled and out of touch with the things that really matter. Hand drumming is an inexpensive and very effective way to "get a grip" and...and...(you guessed it)...have FUN!!!

Working with JP is a lot of fun. He is a passionate and enthusiastic teacher and most importantly my 10 year old daughter looks forward to her piano lessons each week. She describes him as patient and funny! Not only is he an extremely talented musician but he is also a fantastic teacher. Tough combination to come across. I highly recommend JP and his school of music.

I've worked with Ed on and off over the last few years. As a player, he is a total pro, able to deliver at a high level across many styles. What I really love about playing with Ed is that he is also a great person - always a positive attitude, punctual and prepared. Ed is my first call when I need a drummer, for both live and studio work. He has also given some drum lessons to my son, providing not just style and technique, but also some great philosophy and guidance about music in general.

Eric is a fabulous instructor. I stepped in as an adult with no experience and left with skills after the first session. He has a broad background and is able to shift methods and approaches to match learning speed. I just loved it. Thank you!!

Terry is a very kind, polite and professional musician. He arranged to come and meet my son for a lesson. I appreciated his candor and professionalism in letting us know that he would not be able to meet my son's particular lesson needs.

About

I look at getting you confident on the drums ASAP. I don't read or teach reading music per say. Although we will occasionally look at some drum notation, charts and rudiments, it's not a focal point, but more a tool to help explain a concept or idea. For more advanced players, I'm not going to tell you what you are doing is "right" or "wrong" and typically won't mess with your self-taught or learned technique unless I feel it will prevent injury or improve your playing. For the stronger players I will try to stump you with new concepts and styles you probably wouldn't have come in contact with playing in your rock band. These ideas will strengthen your overall playing and adaptability. My goal is to get you to a place where you can teach yourself.
