About Jon
I began teaching when a friend/teacher recommended me as a substitute teacher at Musicians Institute in L.A.. I walked into the class with no prior teaching experience but just took to it naturally from day one. Soon I was teaching there full time. I later learned that I come from a long line of teachers, it runs in the family. I think of teaching basically as this; recognizing a students needs and goals and then communicating with them clearly and simply in order to accomplish those goals. I enjoy teaching and often learn from my students in unforeseen ways. I consider my students to be friends.
Aside from teaching I have worked solely in the music industry since 1990. I have played all over the United States and many other places in the world. I enjoy listening to and playing many different styles of music. I have also writt
en a lot of music for video games and film music.

About Angela
I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor in New York City. I have an opera, musical theater, church and choral background. I am comfortable teaching all styles of music.

Our singing voice is the instrument that we were each born to play. My goal is to make singing effortless and enjoyable and to help my students build confidence in themselves by developing their instrument.

Together we will work on breathing, speaking and vocal exercises as well as appropriate repertoire singing with beautiful Italian vowels, free of tension and with emphasis on emotional purpose.

It would be my pleasure to work with my students on basic music theory. I can also help students prepare their voices for public speaking engagements.

About Russell
As an NYC native, I have been teaching drum lessons for almost 7 years now. Born in lower Manhattan, I attended Manhattan East Middle School for Music & Arts, as well as Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music & Art and the Performing Arts. In 2012, I received a scholarship to attend New England Conservatory of Music where I had the opportunity to study privately with master musicians such as John McNeil, Bob Moses, Miguel Zenon, Jerry Bergonzi and a lengthy apprenticeship with drum legend Billy Hart. In 2014 I received a full scholarship to attend the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music in Canada. I was fortunate enough to be able to work closely there with first- rate artists such as Vijay Iyer, Steve Coleman, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Reggie Workman and more. I have been a private drum lesson instructor since high scho
ol, and have taught dozens of students of all ages, skill levels, and in all styles of music. In addition to private lessons, I have taught workshops and masterclasses in high schools and community centers throughout my years at New England Conservatory. I have also taught at the Outreach Summer Music Workshop in Austria for 2 years, where I instructed and coached ensembles of international students. Music is a powerful thing, and the ability to teach it is a great joy and learning experience.

Russell is a great teacher. He is able to clearly write out the grooves or rudimentary exercises on music paper and have you practice them in creative ways. Russell can play any drum style (rock, jazz, blues, progressive etc) and has a calm and confident demeanor. I would hire him again.... and do.

About Simon
Hi there! My name is Simon Willson and my main gigging instrument is the double bass. I studied Jazz Bass at the New England Conservatory for my Bachelor's and Master's degree.

I have been in love with music since I was very young, and it has been the best gift I have ever received. I would like to be able to share this gift with other people, and that has been the driving force behind my teaching.

In addition to teaching, I keep a very busy performing schedule. You can find me playing at different venues in NYC several nights a week, in addition to frequent tours to Europe, South America, and the US.

I have a background in the Jazz and Classical tradition. In addition to performing, I compose and play guitar and piano. I love harmony and theory, and feel confident teaching those subjects as well.

Some of my past teachers i
nclude bassists Ben Street, Dave Holland, Cecil McBee, and Donald Palma, pianists Ethan Iverson and Frank Carlberg, and trumpet player John McNeil.

About Pete
My drumming adventure began when I was in elementary school, where I joined the school band. I soon branched out to marching band, learning the rudiments and developing stick control. Of course, I also started playing drum kit, both in school and with friends. Playing rock music for fun eventually lead me to drum circles, where I discovered the wide world of percussion. At this point, I started studying several instruments with world-class teachers, including Babatunde Olatunji on African djembe, Zakir Hussain on the tablas of India, and frame drumming with Layne Redmond. These great musicians not only demonstrated technical and artistic skill, but they also helped me to see that we are all connected by rhythm - we are surrounded by it and filled with it all the time. Day turns to night, the heartbeat moves our blood, the seasons tu
rn - these are just a few of the rhythms that people express musically in unique ways around the planet.

Soon I wanted to share what I had learned with others. This lead to the creation of Pangaea Percussion, an ensemble featuring drums from around the world along with a variety of melodic percussion, flutes, and didgeridoos. I also played with a Middle Eastern Folk / Jazz group called Slow Djinn Fez, and the new age jam band, Mandra. Each of these groups was asked by Reno's Pioneer Center Youth Programs to perform for schools and libraries in the region. Today I continue these school assembly programs with Petroglyph, a duet that includes ethnic instruments along with drum kit and electric guitar.

In the mean time, I started teaching drumming. Using my educational experience as a high school science teacher, I developed both private and group lessons that break musical concepts down into a series of components. Students are invited to pick up the pieces that fit their needs and abilities, and then we add layers to build skills and add variety. These lessons have been presented in a variety of settings, including dance studios, private homes, and music festivals such as the California World Music Festival in Grass Valley.

Whether you want to jam on the drum kit in our great American rock and roll tradition, learn interlocking polyrhythms from Africa, or explore complex cycles like 7-beat or 10-beat rhythms from India, I'd love to help you take your percussive skills to the next level!
