A Fantastic Instructor!!!

I have known Derek for many years, and can say what an excellent young man he is in character and helpfulness, As a mother of 10 children, I am concerned that their teachers be well qualified and have a positive influence on my kids. Derek is a wonderful teacher, encouaging, talented, and able to help even the most basic drummer. If he ever plays for you, his giftedness will shine! He is truely an fantastic instructor and my son enjoyed every lesson with him. I would HIGHLY recommend him as your choice to learn and improve in percussion.

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

He's an unbelievable teacher!

Paul is a teacher kids and parents would beg for! He's patient, kind, funny and amazing with my son. My child is not easy to calm, let alone teach, but Paul has this kind and fun personality that connects well with my son. When its time to learn they get down to business but when my son needs a break from the concentration, Paul allows him to break loose a bit and even joins in on the fun! I've never been more happy with a teacher before!!
Thank you Paul!! Your awesome!!!

Paul is awesome!

I started taking lessons with Paul when I was 14 to work on songs I was playing with a couple of friends at school. Paul teaches me so much and he's very organized. We have a lot of fun during lessons. He's very passionate about music and he knows how to convey his love for drumming.

The Best Drum Teacher

Jason is a fantastic drum teacher. I would highly recommend his services. Jason is a professional, dedicated, great personality and caring person. He is the type of person after meeting him we felt like we have known him for years. He taught my son not just to play the drums but also to be a performer. My son would always come home excited after lessons. Jason makes it fun for my son to learn. Within a few months my son played at our school talent show and he gave the performance of his life! The drums helped build up my sons self- esteem. Jason offers a private drum lesson at an affordable price. We are extremely happy and would definitely recommend him to everyone.

My son Jacob has taken drum lessons with Peter for several years. Peter has continuously challenged Jacob with difficult lessons and general rudiments while also keeping him excited and interested in the pieces. Jacob comes home motivated to independently practice and eager for every next session. Jacob is active with his high school band, pep band and jazz band. Jacob has now twice qualified for Concert Band Snare with the Massachusetts Music Educators Central Districts which we can attest is due to the great instruction from Peter.
