I enjoyed practicing with Tim. I only lived in the area for a short time, but he was helpful. I think anyone would benefit from his lessons.
Jared was a wonderful drum and violin instructor for my two sons. He helped them improve and learn, but made sure it was fun. I highly recommend him.
I am very grateful to have met Matt at Cedarburg Music. After playing guitar for 14 years I decided I needed a fresh perspective, and I signed up for my first ever guitar lesson – a very smart decision. I have taken private lessons from many different teachers for other instruments, and I feel Matt is the best teacher I have ever had for several reasons. Matt takes you as you are, and points you in the direction YOU want to go with great advice. Never once has he ever forced "his opinion" about what's good music. Instead it's a discussion, and he gets you to think. Matt knows his music theory. We often study modal theory, and focus on the intervalic separation of the notes in relation to chord tones with a keen ear toward dissonance and resolution. In my opinion, this is what separates quality musicians from those who just spray notes. A lot of teachers I've had are extremely NOT creative. They just tell you to buy a book and do what it says, then the lesson comes and it's a rehearsal. Sorry; I can do that on my own. But with Matt, it's much different. If we work from a book, we focus on understanding and applying the concepts the book lays out. This involves discussion, interaction and playing notes not written in the book. Most importantly, I am more inspired than ever with my playing, and my confidence in my compositions is growing. I believe I am getting better. Believe me, after over a decade of playing it's easy to feel like you're spinning wheels and not getting anywhere. It's a great feeling to know in my heart that I've got that ball rolling again! Thanks, Matt!
Michael is an excellent teacher. He tailors his lessons based on the specific things I wanted to learn. He explains things in terms that are easy to understand and has an easy going demeanor that makes the learning environment very comfortable. After just two lessons I saw much improvement in my technique. I would highly recommend hiring Michael as a teacher.
Frank is the best choice for great music lessons, I had him as my drum instructor for around 3 years. He taught me everything I know now and helped me build a foundation to be a great drummer. I Highly recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to be a great musician and have FUN at the same time too!!!
He was a great instructor every thing was easy to understand and went at the pace I needed so I could understand what I was doing and still have fun with it.
Simple. CDL (Chicago's # 1 Drum Lessons) is the only one on one drum instruction that offers an extremely original lesson plan on DVD to take home where you can not learn from another teacher, book, etc. Our custom curriculum has been thought out to get a student from point A to point B in their drumming extremely fast, and efficiently. We can also help with a students school band pieces. Just watch some of our sample videos of actual current students. That's our proof! The gratification of helping a student go from not knowing how to hold drumsticks, to playing in a band or recording a CD, or getting a record deal and going on tour just within a few months/years.

I get excited every time I can help inspire someone new to play the drums . Helping someone attain there goals is the best part of what I do .
I run a drum-lesson business that caters to the learning needs of each individual I work with. I choose the name Drum Geek Drum Lessons, because I don't just teach notes. I like to also dive in to the history of drumming and music. I feel this provides a better understanding of the notes that will also be taught.
I teach snare drum, drum set, hand drums, hand percussion, and improvisation. I mainly use my own books/teaching methods and base my instruction on each students needs and goals. I have been both performing and teaching drums & percussion for over 40 years. I've also written about music and musicians for both magazines & books. From 1983-2008, I was a contributing writer for MODERN DRUMMER magazine, writing feature interviews, technical articles, and both product and music reviews. I've also written for AVANT (UK), DownBeat, Rhythm, and many other music magazines. Among my books are: WHEN IN DOUBT, ROLL! (with Bill Bruford), PERCUSSION PROFILES (with Trevor Taylor), and THE THINKING DRUMMER series of instructional books. My long running blogs, ‘The Way of the Gong’™, and, ‘Percussion Deconstruction’™, have been embraced by both the meditation/sound therapy and percussion communities. I have presented clinics and workshops at schools/universities, yoga studios, and music stores, as well as workshops at the prestigious Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) in 2005 & 2012. In 2016 I was the ‘Artist in Residence’ at the MONA FOMA Festival in Hobart, Australia. I use and endorse Paiste cymbals/sounds/gongs, Mike Balter Mallets, and Orpheus Percussion. PRESS QUOTES: Bettine’s work is the sonic equivalent of action painting. Using mallets as brushes and the Gongs as a canvas, he creates vast washes of vibration and punctuates them with stabs and slashes of crescendo. He’s a combination of abstraction and visceral physicality. Brian Ritchie, curator of MONA FOMA, Hobart, Australia Bettine played the room as much as the instruments, exploring the beating tones of vibrations that when combined sounded like a train rumbling underground. Creating a shifting wall of sound that washed over the audience, Bettine offered us a distinctive exploration into the craft of percussion. ~ Delia Bartle, Real Time Arts, Australia Sinking into Bettine's sound world is fascinating and inspiring. ~ MODERN DRUMMER magazine Bettine has a unique vision that sets him apart from the hoards. ~ DRUM! magazine Bettine is essential listening for percussionists and anyone interested in solo free-oriented music. ~The Improvisor I enjoy sharing the knowledge and experience I have gathered over the past 40 years. I also think it's important to share this knowledge and not just keep it to myself. It's always a pleasure to see students making progress, reaching goals, and becoming better musicians in the performing world.
I strive to make my students not feel any pressure when learning or taking lessons. The only expectation is to come with enthusiasm and to have fun. I am willing to cater to the needs and desires of every student individually based regardless of interest, learning style, or musical preference. I enjoy seeing the smiles on students faces as they learn new things every lesson and find new and exciting ways to learn the drum kit and turn the instrument into a life long fun hobby.
Study with the pros! Offering lessons in most instruments, Lakeshore has a long history of former students active as professionals and educators at all levels.
Rock Central is a nonprofit community music school providing performance based music education to kids and adults of all ages and skill levels. Students receive weekly individual lessons followed by weekly group rehearsals for their specific program. This is where they have the opportunity to take what they've learned and apply it to a group setting with their peers. Not only will they develop their musical skills, they also develop their confidence and self esteem. At the end of each session, each group gets to perform out in a real life venue with friends, family and community supporters cheering them on.
Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. We do not treat every students the same in terms of what and how we teach. A seven year old having their first guitar lessons will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. That main reason to choose the Music Gallery Academy as your music lessons provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Our music teachers teach rock, blues, jazz, heavy metal, country, folk, finger style, funk, classical, raggae, and more! Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight-reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with an new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of technologies to accomplish this. We are the only school in the Chicago area to equip each studio with Mac computers, printers, internet access, and programs to slow down your mp3 to play along with your favorite songs at a comfortable pace.
I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years now and am very experienced reading and improvising. I have also been playing guitar for over 15 years now, and I have given lessons in the past.
As a younger musician, I understand what the young want to learn. But as an experienced musician, I can well cater to older clients. Also, with my large repertoire of musical styles, instruments, and pieces, I feel more than well qualified to meet my customers' needs. I love music! But what I love more is spreading music to others!
We carry a full spectrum of musical gears. We rent audio equipment, and we also have a teacher-lesson program for most musical instruments. We have a service policy after purchase of an instrument that is tops in the industry. I also record teachers, students, and customers by appointment. We do rock out with customers at times. Were a cool store.
Music and Arts are our passion. The Conservatory of Music and Arts has been providing private and group lessons for the past 20 years. All lessons are instructed by teachers that have degrees in their discipline. With the teaching experience that will keep all students interested in learning more. That's easy to answer. Our teachers get to pass-on to a new generation of what their passionate about. Whether it's Bach's Minute in G or painting Van Gogh's Starry Night to dancing the Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. We go that extra distance to make the arts come alive!
Private music or production/engineering instruction is offered by instructor who has been trained by Grammy winners!
I am looking for young or elderly beginner drummers. I have experience in a multitude of percussion instruments, and I incorporate this into my drum-set teaching.
