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.

About Renaud

I was born in Caen, Normandy, France.

I studied drums and percussion and obtained a unanimous first-prize at the Seine Saint-Denis drums competition. I also attended workshops under the direction of great drummers such as Max ROACH, Clifford JARVIS and Jack DeJOHNETTE.

I performed in virtually in every major jazz club in Paris (New Morning, Duc des Lombards, Sunset, Petit Opportun, Manhattan Jazz Club, Sunset), in various Jazz Festivals and I also played in Germany and Italy.

At the same time I started teaching regularly in four conservatories (Arcueil, le Pr�-St-Gervais, Epinay Sous S�nart and Chevilly) for more than 10 years until I moved to New York. I taught private lessons for drums and percussion, and also numerous workshops for kids, teens and adults.

Renaud is a Great Instructor!

My son, Liam, eally enjoys his drum lessons with Renaud. He comes home excited about what he has learned and goes straight to his drums to show us. Renaud is teaching him the fundamentals, as well as challenging him with new rhythms. Liam's ability to read and write music has improved, as well as his speed. We are very pleased.

Rob was an awesome teacher and even better guy. The lesson environment was comfortable, but always focused and professional. He's clearly a hugely talented musician and has a ton to offer in the way of teaching; perhaps more importantly though, his love of music inspires the student to practice and learn. Very highly recommended.

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.
