I've taken lessons from Albert for several years. Albert is an awesome teacher and VERY patient. He is fluent in teaching many styles of music from classical, funk, jazz, rock, county, finger style, blues, metal, ear training etc. He teaches theory and how to apply it to guitar in a way that is easy to understand. He also teaches how to read standard notation, as well as tablature. Most guitar teachers these days are just teaching tab. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Albert to anyone of any age looking to learn how to play guitar, or someone who is working on getting to the next level. Albert is a cut above the rest!

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 lessons are very dynamic and are oriented to keep the students very motivated.

About Rafael

I have been teaching by more than 30 years, and with this experience,and the knowledge accumulated in those years plus my playing experience, I am able to teach my students in a very good way.

My lessons will be very dynamic by the interaction with my students, giving them the tools they will need to play in real situations. "Playing, listening, reading, and writing".

Always looking forward, never looking back, music is passion and joy.

Professional and competent...

I am a fellow musician, a piano/keyboard player. I first played with Rafael at jam sessions, where we met up several times before getting together privaetly for rehearsing and recording. Rafael is an easy going person who plays both comfortably and with conviction behind the drums. Literate in music notation, specializing in rhythms and patterns, Rafael plays many grooves from Jazz, Rock and Funk to Cumbia, Salsa and Brazillian rhythms for a nice, eclectic mix. Whether improvising or playing more in a tradition, exploring musical territory is a pleasure with Rafael, students can only benefit from his knowledge and experience. Enjoy the journey...

About Fabian

I've been teaching Drums for 10 years and my students have gone on to become professional musicians themselves. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to fluently play many rock and pop songs. I specialize in rock and pop , typically use Tommy Igoe's Groove Essential books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: fully equipped studio with drums, guitar, keyboard and recording gear.. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Paolo L. Brooklyn, NY

I design each student's lessons around his/her personal needs and goals. There are many ways to achieve the same results. I believe it is my job to understand which ones will work for each student.

About Paolo

Being a drummer, composer and arranger, I see music from many angles. When I teach the drums, I put a special effort in helping my students see the big picture, training them to "hear" what they are doing and how it relates to the music, encouraging them to take full ownership of their drumming and their role in the band.

The drumset is a powerful instrument, it controls the largest number of music features in a band (time, density, rhythm, dynamics and color, just to name a few) and the drummer is in charge of them. I can help my students achieve control over these musical aspects through personalized lessons.

Technique is the means to an end, not the end itself. At Berklee College of Music I studied with a large number of drum teachers and have mastered subjects such as ...

You can't hope to find a better teacher! Paolo is and extremely knowledgeable and capable musician. Plus he's a super cool/professional guy.
You can rest easy on the fact that he knows exactly what you need to learn and work on relative to your goals.
I came to him as a guitar player completely new to drums. What I've learned would have taken me so much longer without his help. If you really want to learn, there is no way you can go wrong with him.

I have been taking lessons with Paolo since the beginning of the year. I came as a proficient rock player wanting to play jazz, and have been able to make a lot of progress. The things I've worked on with him have also helped my drumming in general and I feel like I'm becoming a much better musician. I'd recommend taking lessons with Paolo for anyone interested in drums.

Paolo is great! His patience and ability to carefully listen and observe what a student needs is what makes him a great musician and instructor.

He helps me understand the role the drumset plays and what to focus on when practicing on my own and when playing in a group. He guides me through my hesitations while encouraging my own style. I'm glad I found such a great instructor!

As an accomplished musician, but a beginning drummer, Brian was excellent at communicating to me at both levels, and I saw rapid improvement! Brian himself is a brilliant musician and accomplished drum technician, and I would say he is worthy of teaching some of the best.

AMAZING DRUM TEACHER!

I have to say that learning the drums isn't easy. However, Brian helped me get started and made things manageable. I'm not a fast learner, but he helped me learn things that I thought would be impossible... THANKS BRIAN!!!
