I have a 14 year old who has had the privilege to have Susan teach him the tenor sax - and he has advanced remarkably in a short time! She has worked with him in music tastes, etc... The take lessons service has been easy to set up and utilize, too. I would HIGHLY recommend...Excellent instructor (and good location for Delaware County folks) You won't be disappointed!

Michael C. Philadelphia, PA

I've been teaching music for 15 years and my students have gone on to play in bands and some even went on to study music in college. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few basic rock patterns and as time goes on you'll be able to play fills while also keeping the music steady. I specialize in understanding rhythms and practicing them slowly in order to develop the physical coordination which is needed to be successful on the drum kit. Generally I will make recordings for you to play along with. This makes it easier and fun to practice. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...

Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher.
