AMAZING teacher!

Jill is in a class of her own where it comes to teaching piano! She is incredible with kids, has tons of patience, is gentle yet firm enough to redirect an active 8 year olds attention. I was worried that my sons interest in restarting piano lessons would dwindle, as it had with his previous teacher, but Jill is a breath of fresh air, she is energetic, enthusiastic and knows just how to keep him motivated! Her love, respect and knowledge of music are evident. She makes each lesson fun and enjoyable. My son loves practicing and looks forward to his lessons... that speaks volumes. Simply put she's an awesome teacher whom I highly recommend.

About Emerson

Thanks so much for your interest in starting music lessons with me. I’m so excited to share my passion for music with you! As Lao Tzu said: “Music in the soul can be heard by the universe." Lesson details: My main goal as a teacher is to help my students reach their goals. If my student wants to learn how to play rock, hip-hop, and jazz drums I believe that it's my job to teach them how to play those styles..! If my student wants to get accepted into a music school I will make sure that they are prepared for an audition whether it be for orchestral percussion, jazz drums, rock drums, etc. The equipment I have in my studio: Drum set, marimba, timpani, concert snare drum, electric and acoustic guitars, guitar amplifier, 88-key keyboard, maracas, shakers, tambourine, triangles, ...

Emerson is an amazing instructor. Besides being a very knowledgeable and gifted musician, he’s patient, kind, and makes learning the drums fun. What I appreciate most about Emerson is that he’s interested in helping me reach my goals. I happen to be interested in learning Latin style drums and lucky for me, Latin is one (of many) of Emerson’s specialties. So many people have told me that Latin is hard to learn, but in four short lessons, I already know how to play a basic Bossa Nova beat. Emerson is a very organized and efficient instructor. We work with handouts, video (I record him as he instructs) and reading exercises from a book. A highlight for me in our sessions is when Emerson accompanies my drum playing with another instrument, the piano for example. I really get the feeling like we’re having a little jam session and it's fun because I can hear that I'm making music and that's an awesome feeling.

Choose Emerson as your music instructor and you will not be disappointed.

Emerson is a great instructor who has been helping me prepare for an upcoming performance (for my bar-mitzvah (like in front of 100 of my closest peers (so like yeah that's a lot of stress))). He is a great instructor and I look forward to continue studying with him.

excellent instructor for drums and piano!

Ryan is an exceptional music instructor. He has been giving guidance to my 13 year old son on drums and piano for 3-4 months and my son's abilities have dramatically soared. Ryan is equally talented on both instruments and offers top notch dual instruction. Ryan is a true musician and knows how to communicate the language of music on various levels to my son. He observes and instructs accordingly.
My son is so excited after each lesson that he comes home and practices both instruments on his own, without having to be prompted. My son plays both instruments now with so much more style and exuberance. Ryan is extremely professional, soft spoken and gifted on his own. I would highly recommend Ryan as a music instructor for kids and adults.

Ryan is an excellent teacher. Thanks to his amazing knowledge of the subject matter, impressive creativity, support and patience, my son always looks forward to Ryan's lessons. Ryan always supports my son's passion to learn to play the piano and drums, and he successfully manages to direct my son's energy into something productive, which motivates my son to learn even more. So, thank you, Ryan, for everything!
