Tamara

Tamara is extremely professional and is one of the best teachers I have ever worked with. She can take the most novice of players and transform them into incredible musicians. Whether you want to study drum set, snare drum, or concert percussion, Tamara is the person to go to. She goes above and beyond to make sure each student is successful, essentially, giving you more bang for your buck. Being one of Tamara's students in high school, I can say Tamara is one of, if not the best, teachers I have ever had.

5-Star Teacher

I began taking percussion lessons with Tamara as a high school sophomore. I had played in marching band before that, but until then, had not studied any solo percussion instruments. I had never even held a four-mallet marimba grip before. Over the course of the next three years, under Tamara's instruction, I made it into All-State Band and Orchestra two years in a row, was principle of All-County Band two years in a row, completed two advanced four-mallet marimba solos (along with several snare drum and timpani etudes), and auditioned and was accepted into three percussion programs at esteemed colleges. None of this would have been possible without Tamara's incredible lessons. She taught me not only technique, but musicianship. She is one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met, not only in terms of classical percussion, but world music, drumset, marching percussion, etc. The list could go on and on. She is always able to explain every question clearly, leaving no stone unturned. Above all else, Tamara's tactfulness and consideration for others sets her apart from other teacher's I've studied under. She meets all problems with thoughtful solutions, always sensitive to every thing and everyone involved. Even today, four and a half years after our first lesson together, Tamara will be the first person I turn to if I have a question, whether it be about percussion, the music business, or life in general. She is my first recommendation for anyone in need of a percussion teacher.

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums. As an adult, Nicole studied to become an ...

Randall makes sure that you don't persist with any bad habits that will prevent you from learning how to play the instrument properly. He also gives you simple analogies why some things need to be done a certain way...and as a side benefit, you will learn about music history as it relates to what you are doing.

He is an excellent teacher! Just because you play drums doesn't mean you can teach drums. My son has shown so much growth working with Glenn. He is truly a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Great Drum Instructor !!

Great Drum Instructor!! He has a true passion for teaching and identifies quickly with his students.

My son has been taking lessons from him since the age of 13 and he learned more in his first year than most kids learn through many years of instruction.

He is a personable, friendly and talented professional !! I would highly recommend him for anyone!
Connor I. Tampa, FL

When it comes to things other than drum set I have years of experience playing hand drums and melodic percussion. I have experience teaching hand drums, and teaching melodic instruments would be as simple as having access to one.

About Connor

I'm young and energetic, so I tend to connect with younger people very well.
