My son and I take lessons from "Mr. Matt." He is always enthusiastic and supportive even if we're not the most musically talented. We love his mix of basic essentials, music style and theory, and plain rocking out to songs we pick that he shows us how to play.
Jessica
We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!
Michael
Matthew has been great for my son, Michael! He has learned a lot in a short period of time!

Dave is excellent with my 5 year old daughter. Great approach combining music theory and technical training all while keeping the attention of my child. Could not be any happier with our experience:)

I pretty much teach all common areas of percussion. These include timpani, drum set, marching percussion, mallet percussion, concert percussion, and some world percussion.

When he was 15 years old, during his freshman year of high school, he started studying percussion. A year later he began studying under Chad Kohler and continued to do so until

Percussion instruments are great! The percussion section has many unique instruments you can learn. I am so excited to teach you more about the percussion instruments. I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the percussive instruments including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, half-hole technique, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

It's no secret, percussion is the backbone or "foundation" to
any hit song.

you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling
along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

"My 11 year old son lost his drum teacher, and we found TakeLessons online. The hardest part is choosing a teacher because many are all top notch 5-Star rated. I picked Tracy D. seemingly at random!

What a lucky draw it turned out to be. Tracy is a real pro, with a great personality. It took my son less than a few minutes before he was comfortable, having fun, and learning new things (he has 1 year experience).

I’ve been a part time musician for over 40 years, and I can tell you when I meet someone that is a true professional musician and the right person to teach my son. That is this exceptional woman."

"Good assessment of child's starting point. Wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Great introduction into drum kit (we called it drum set in my day). At that point, needed to slow down and give child more fundamental practice time to soak in the concepts before racing on."

"I have been taking music lessons of various types in and outside of school since elementary school and have never had a teacher who introduces concepts quite like Mr.Fuhrman. Things that I have struggled with ever since they were introduced; especially regarding rhythm/counting have become incredibly simple- as they should be! My progress regarding percussion (which I've been working with for over 4 years) has increased exponentially since working with him. Not only will he highly recommend essential practice, but he's willing to give you various strategies to manage time and to be able to fit the practice in. I've had music teachers (all of whom were very competent musicians) telling me to practice since the second grade, but no one's ever set aside some lesson time to discuss how to fit it in. I am a beginning music teacher myself and have already implemented some of the concepts he has taught with my own students. He's not only an incredibly skillful musician, but he is an amazing teacher as well. You won't regret doing lessons with him."

"Kevin is a fantastic instructor!

I have been taking private lessons from Kevin for two years now as we'll as receiving instruction in Band for the last three years. Kevin not only is an incredible percussionist himself, but he has a knack for being able to convey ideas to students that they can understand. New and better approaches to teaching rhythm, personalized lesson planning to suit a student's needs, and a vast knowledge of music from years of professional experience are just a few things that Kevin brings to the table. If you're looking for a percussion instructor, I would highly recommend Kevin as your first choice!"
