I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Online Drum Teacher

I have a background in fundamental rhythm, rather than teaching the student to simply play, I teach them to read and write their own rhythms and drum beats in a fun and hands-on manner using methods that music teachers around the country use in their classrooms. Furthermore, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 4 years old from their very first lesson. I’ve developed my own method for children to read drum music using simple and an easy to understand rhythmic language.

Not only is John an off-the-charts professional drummer, he's a fantastic human being as well! He loves music and it comes through in the lessons! In 35 years of playing and hanging around wannabees, John is the genuine musician! Anyone really wanting to learn correctly needs John. I recommend him 100%.

Marc has helped me develop my style and helped me implement my "voice" in what I am writing. He also offered several constructive suggestions that made my piece stronger as a whole.

Mr. Marc was an extremely enthusiastic instructor that made me excited about all of the material he taught me. He is very resourceful and uses a unique approach that I never had encountered from any other instructor. He is very kind and knowledgeable in many subject areas, and is an incredible musician. My playing improved tremendously under his instruction. I would HIGHLY recommend him to students of any age!

"GREAT INSTRUCTOR!! I am 48yo and was apprehensive about trying to learn something new at my age. I've had three lessons thu far and have been enjoying this to the fullest. Rufus keeps the lessons fun and interestng by adding different assignments for me to work on throughout my week. The key is to practice; which, I have embraced and I actually like. I bought a drum set after my 2nd lesson. Rufus came to my house to help me set everything up and tune my drums. He blessed my drums by playing for a few minutes while I stood back and grinned like a 10yo. I jumped on next hoping my drums would sound the same as when he played (they didn't). But that's okay, they will someday. I will be a student with him for a while!!"

Everything You Need to Know About Open Handed Drumming

It’s known by a few names: “Open handed drumming,” playing with a “left hand lead,” playing “uncrossed,” or simply “open.” Whatever you decide to call it, open handed drumming is a way of setting up and playing your drum set so that one hand doesn’t cross over the other while playing the time-keeping cymbals (like the hi-hats, or ride). It can equate to playing time with your non-dominant hand, and it also can mean playing the hi-hats or ride cymbals in unusual lo …
