About Cem

Thanks for checking out my profile. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals in drum and percussion! Here's a little info about my musical training:

Born in Istanbul, Turkey and raised in Tulsa, OK, my first musical experiences were on my grandmother's old piano. I was later introduced to a drum set when my brother and I received a drum set as a gift. I played in several local bands and in my high school jazz band in Tulsa, playing a range of musical styles from rock, swing, funk, and Latin. I decided in my senior year of high school to take music seriously and moved to NYC to study at the Drummer's Collective. During this period, I also focused on Middle Eastern hand percussion (doumbek, riq, and frame drum) and studied with Mehmet Akatay in Turkey. ...

Cem is a great musician and instructor. His lessons are always informative, and best of all not boring. He plays alongside you and he is always patient, and helpful. Cem is a excellent teacher who wants to see his students progress, and I would recommend taking lessons with him.

Instructor Review

Cem is an excellent instructor, a very patient teacher that takes the time to discuss the importance of form and sound quality. I have always had the desire to play drums and have never played so I appreciate his approach of making me feel at ease by playing along with me so I can see his form and technique. All the feedback I have received I have been able to return to the next class with improved skill and understanding. I really enjoy and look forward to my classes and I am happy with my progression during a short period of time.

About Me

I grew up in the South Bronx during the 70s and 80s. I understand the importance of community and how a neighborhood can be destroyed if the people do not get involved and work together for real solutions. Music and films were my salvation. I began to write songs and play guitar at the age of ten, and 15 years ago I started a band to raise the awareness level of teens and adults regarding the world around them. The band is called Glass of Know. The group had songs playing on ...

John is an amazing instructor and keeps inspiring me to reach for new heights in my musicianship and just life in general. I also had a pleasure of witnessing him in action as a film director and an actor - such a fun and easy person to work with, and highly professional! With his extensive experience and teaching ability, I believe he can work with the student of any level, while adjusting the pace to the student's needs. Highly recommend to any person who loves music, film, and arts in general.

Erica S. Bloomfield, NJ

About Erica

Hi! My name is Erica, and I am a private lesson teacher, composer, arranger, and pianist currently living, writing, performing, and teaching in North Jersey. I believe that by having such a versatile musical background, I will be able to understand different needs and interests you may have and help you begin or continue your musical journey and reach your goals.

I currently teach 30 private piano and composition students in North New Jersey, and I am consistently inspired by all the progress all my students have made! My students have played classical pieces in recitals, played in jazz combos with other student musicians, written music that was performed by professional ensembles, learned how to play ragtime, and more. No two students have gone down the same path, because the ...

She gets it!

Quick background: I was classically trained for about 7 years in piano, starting when I was around 9. My teacher was great, and did an awesome job of driving the fundamentals.

Fast forward to more recently: Having not taken lessons for 15+ years (I had continued playing and learning...just without a teacher), I decided I wanted to pursue a bit more jazz and theory. I went back to my childhood teacher, who very honestly told me that jazz was not his forte. I took a few months of lessons with him, which helped to get me back into the swing of things, but I was really interested in jazz.

I found Erica on takelessons, and she was truly amazing! If you're looking for a teacher who is always "by the book", this isn't her. While I'm sure she can do that, she thrives in allowing you to be a musician. Her understanding of complex time signatures is great, and she really helps to chunk things up into manageable pieces.

Some of her greatest strengths, from the student's perspective, are her patience, friendly demeanor, STRONG understanding of music theory (she's a composer at heart, and I've no doubt that she's great at it), broad knowledge of music, from composers to artists, and her ability to help you learn to improvise. If I wanted to play different notes than what was on the page, within reason of course, that was ok. Having come from a classical background, that was quite refreshing.

I was always able to look forward to learning something new at my lessons; even her book recommendations have been excellent.

I'd say, because of her patience, she's a perfect teacher for adults and children alike. You really can't go wrong with Erica!

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

About Erika

My name is Erika and music has always been an essential part of my life! As soon as the cliche dream of becoming an astronaut was out of my mind, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music- my dream was to become a professional pit orchestra musician on Broadway. I attended Ithaca College and received my bachelors degree in music education and saxophone performance, where I quickly learned that I enjoyed teaching as much as performing! I loved conducting high school band and teaching private and group instrumental lessons. I was a member of the pit orchestra in several collegiate and professional musical productions, as well as the alto saxophone player of Zephyr Saxophone Quartet. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing ping pong, taking pictures and exploring new ...

I learned saxophone for a year back in 2007 and haven't played since. I was looking for someone who can get me started again after such a long gap. Over the past month Erika has been helping me get back and move forward. I find Erika to be knowledgeable, patient and keeps things at a lively pace without stagnation. She also made corrections to my embouchure, breath support and reeds, which seem to be improving my playing. So thanks to Erika. I look forward to continue learning and hope this first hand information helps anyone in search of a good saxophone teacher in and around Jersey City.
