Gary is not only an awesome teacher, but an awesome person as well. I've been playing drums for 58 years now and I still learned a lot by taking lessons from him. My 21-year-old son has progressed by leaps and bounds from Gary's lessons.

    I am over 30 years old and went to Miles with zero musical knowledge let alone any experience playing the drums. Miles reaches that perfect balance of being patient and pushing me to learn more. He has introduced information to me at a rate that is appropriate and takes the time to work through the musical concepts with me. At the same time he knows when to push forward with more challenging aspects of playing the drums to get the most out of our lessons. Miles is clearly very knowledgeable and talented and I recommend him highly if you are looking for drum lessons.

      He is amazing teacher! Not only knowledgable but kind and patient, strict but fair. He only wants the best for the kids and wants to see them succeed. Both my boys take lessons from him and we have been student of his for four years. I wouldn't want another teacher for my boys and feel we got so lucky with Mr. Lester!!

      This gentleman is phenomenal and we highly recommend him!! His talent and kindness will give you what you want to hear. My husband and I had a beach wedding and he is very accommodating. We gave him his choice of music to play before the ceremony. He played "Canon in D" just how I had asked for my father to walk me down the isle. He played "Daddy's Hands" while our cousin sang for the father/daughter dance and he helped her sing some of the chorus. Our brother rewrote some lyrics to a song I had asked him to sing and Shawn played to that as well. He will do what it takes to give you your "Special Day". Gracias Shawn and keep up the groove!!

      It has been a joy working with Brandon! He is always on time and challenges my son, appropriately, with his guitar progress. Brandon is very warm and engaging, always keeping us parents update on how the sessions are going. We recommend Brandon!

        Our son (now 8) has been taking lessons with the studio for about 2 years now. The teachers are great, share their love of music, make the lessons fun and serious all at the same time.

          I have been taking lessons with Chris for 3+ years now. I highly recommend him. He has a wealth of knowledge in various genres of music and his lesson structure makes you better. On top of that I am a working professional and he is very accommodating to time needs. I have to routinely change times or dates at last minute. Never any issues. Price wise there is not a better deal in NOVA.

          About

          My name is Agustin Faundez, and I am currently 20 years old. I am a graduate of South Lakes High School in Reston, Virginia, and am currently a junior at the State University of New York in Fredonia Mason School of Music, majoring in music performance and music therapy with a focus on percussion. I have been studying and performing music for nine years now. I have studied under the directions of the following: * Aubrey Adams - Freelance percussionist, retired principal percussionist of Air Force Band, percussionist of Maryland Symphony, substitute percussionist of National Symphony Orchestra, South Lakes High School percussion instructor as well as private percussion instructor and recording musician * Dr. Karolyn Stonefelt - Recording artist, currently head of Fredonia School of Music Percussion Department, principal percussionist and timpanist of Western New York Chamber Orchestra, freelance percussionist, percussionist with Erie Opera Company, on- and off-Broadway percussionist and retired percussionist from Baltimore Symphony * John Bacon - Staff percussionist at SUNY Fredonia Mason School of Music, freelance percussionist and substitute percussionist with Buffalo Philharmonic * Tiffany Nicely - Staff percussionist at SUNY Fredonia Mason School of Music, freelance percussionist, head of Percussion Department at Buffalo University in NY, and substitute percussionist for Buffalo Philharmonic * Bernard Woma - African drumming instructor at Fredonia School of Music, Ghanaian master gyil player Experiences During high school, I performed with the South Lakes wind ensemble, percussion ensemble, marching band, orchestra, choir, the Fairfax Symphony, the Reston Chamber Community Orchestra, and the All District Symphonic Band. I have taught lessons for the past three years in a small percussion studio I hold at my home. I performed in multiple ensembles when in college, such as percussion ensemble, African drumming ensemble, world mallet keyboard ensemble, symphony orchestra and band. I marched in the South Lakes High School drum line for four years and played snare for two. I am proficient in the warmups, techniques, music reading and writing, am open to teaching methods and the discipline of the drum line standard. I also have previous experience with teaching in the South Lakes High School percussion and drum line for two summers after graduation of high school. I am proficient in all main percussion instruments, including the snare drum (orchestral and rudimental/drum corps), the mallet keyboard, the timpani, and the drum set as well as auxiliary instruments, such as the tambourine, the triangle, the shakers, the hand drums, the djembe, and many more. Qualities As a musician, I am able to read, write and perform music, have great patience for working with others as well as always eager to learn something new. I believe that I am a polite, positive, encouraging, friendly, independent, and responsible individual and am always open for new experiences. With the snare drum, I can teach orchestral and rudimental/drum corps styles of snare drum. I focus on 40 rudiments, repertoire, technique (matched or traditional grips), musicality, expression, and quality of sound. I can also teach instrument tuning, care and maintenance. For the mallet keyboard percussion, I am proficient at marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, glockenspiel, balophone, and gyil. I also focus on technique, accuracy, musical expression, quality of sound, four-mallet (Stevens/traditional crossed/Burton crossed) and two-mallet technique and grip. On the timpani, I have the ability to teach timpani technique (French/German), musicality, tone quality, tuning accuracy and methods, and repertoire. With the drum set, I am a versatile player on the drum set. I can teach multiple Latin styles, hip-hop/rap, jazz, rock and funk. I focus on limb independence, musical expression, style understanding, ability to play and adjust with other musicians, tone quality, polyrhythms, rudimentary use on the drum set, versatility and popular repertoire for the drum set. Importance of Music I believe that music is a primary necessity in everyone's everyday lives and by studying music through instruments, we learn not only about these instruments but also about ourselves and how our musical personas play a roll in each individual's life. Percussion is as primal as an instrument gets. It dates to prehistoric times with ancient drums and the basic ability to keep a pulse. It is an instinct felt in all our lives through our heartbeat, yet it is a special craft that takes all life to perfection and creates unbelievable moments of joy and passion through music.

          Trent has been teaching since 1996, and welcomes students of all ages and experience levels. He has the ability to help with any style of drumming and will hand-tailor a routine to fit each student’s needs. Lessons are half hour or one hour sessions per week, and are taught from his home studio in Hagerstown, MD which is convenient for the locations of Williamsport, Smithsburg, Boonsboro, Middletown, and Clear Spring in Maryland; or Chambersburg, Mercersburg, Waynesboro, and Greencastle in Pennsylvania; or anywhere there’s internet by using Skype.

          About

          My teaching sticks (pun) out because of many factors! 1) Humor and dedication! I believe in goals and hard work but doing it with a smile/joke. 2) Education! Read my bio below. 3)Full-Time teacher! This is what I do so it's important to me that you get the best experience! 4)My countless worksheets and books that I have written out on every style and embellishment! Nothing more boring than a teacher who picks out the same book for EVERY student. 5) I also play bass guitar along with the students. So you get the instant satisfaction of jamming the material you learn! 6)Affordable! It's only $78 for a full month of lessons. 7)I'm a player and fan of ALL music! Rock, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, R&B, Latin, Drum &Fife, Marching....the list goes on! 8)Check my many great reviews out on NicksDrumLessons.com or on Facebook at Facebook.com/NicksDrumLessons. I can keep going on the list but it would be egotistical. :)
