I’m a bilingual professional drummer/musician with a Masters degree in music. I have also been teaching drums for more than 18 years with students of all ages, from beginners to advanced drummers. I have also toured worldwide with many top artists like Becky G., Thalia, Oscar Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, etc. Part of the things I think are important to learn as a drummer are: How to develop independence, hand/foot technique and speed, rudiments, theory, how to play different genres among other things.

With all music majors, we have to be prolific in our theory. I teach a basis of theory to all students. I like to work on theory and ear training at the same time as they both go hand in hand.

Beckie is fantastic! Technically proficient, excellent teacher and highly inspiring! My son has made incredible progress over a few short months.
Zachary
Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

Teacher for two years experienced in beginner to intermediate students. I generally start my classes by seeing what the students will benefit the most and start helping the student increase their ability to play the piano using a variety of exercises and having them choose a piece of their choice to work on. If the student wants to learn more than just piano, I'm also a composer that can help them understand more about music and beyond the instrument itself.

To paraphrase Johann Sebastian Bach: "Playing the piano is easy...all you have to do is play the right notes...." Seriously, whether you're just beginning, or whether you've been studying piano for years, playing the piano is a lot more fun and rewarding than playing Pokémon GO...and it will keep you out of trouble and out of other peoples' backyards.

About Lawrence

Lawrence loves to teach music, especially piano and organ. He began studying the piano at age 5; by age 12 he was studying the pipe organ and performing at church services in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. A graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and the University of Massa

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Went way above and beyond to work with my son and help him with the things that he struggled with. We are very pleased and thankful to Mr. Jerry.
Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

"Evan's lessons are structured and creative -- a combo that's hard to find and essential to learning. Evan plays close attention to my style and tailors lessons to meet my needs. I leave each lesson with new techniques that are helping me become able to play the music I want to play. I've noticed a huge difference in what I can do since I started working with him! Evan is an advanced drummer who hasn't forgotten what it's like to still be learning the fundamentals and is genuinely interested in helping you get to the next level."

"I was self taught for @ 5 months then decided to get lessons. I wanted a pro to be able to assess where I was at and give me the right instruction.

Tomas was able to to give me just that. He also taught me some neat strum patterns that made it fun. My wife really likes the sounds I can make with the guitar after only 2 lessons with Tomas.

On top of that he is a genuinely pleasant person to be around. I can tell he loves teaching people guitar.

My wife really likes the genre of music I am learning because she grew up with it. I like it as well as the finger skills that go along with it.

I believe this experience learning from Tomas will greatly influence the personal music style that I end up developing into."

"I am currently working with Alani on the mandolin and I have already learned so much. Alani is has been very patient with my limited understanding of music and incredibly encouraging. I chose to work with Alani because she identified in her profile that she enjoys playing and teaching old-time and bluegrass. She has been helping me learn to play by ear so I can eventually contribute to some campfire jams when I am back in my home state of Maine! She always sets me up with a task and/or lesson to practice on my own. The lessons include a Youtube video that allows me to follow along and listen as I learn. In all, she is incredibly knowledgeable, talented, kind, and a great communicator. I have already recommended her to two friends who are looking to get into playing."

Marty is definitely that person. She is kind, patient and understands my disability. I took lessons as a child and come from a musical family and she has restored confidence in my ability to play the piano. My hand/brain coordination has improved greatly. She has incorporated some music theory techniques that really work for me. I am very lucky to have found Marty."

He listens and is very intent on the students needs and not trying to overwhelm them with too much. Greg has helped me with a better understanding of how to play my bass better along with encouraging me to step out a little more to learn the whys and how comes we all wonder about music at times. He also enjoys learning from our own joirneys in music. I would recommend Greg to anyone, every time it is worth it. I have found new levels of playing the bass that i did not know that existed in me. He is just a great all around Christian man who loves to serve the Lord with those who God has put in his path."

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]

When you're learning how to write a song, looking at how other songs are structured can be a great place to start. Like looking at a map before you go on a roadtrip, checking out the basic elements of songs you love gives you a sense of how they were written and what you need to do to write a song of your own. If analyzing all your favorite songs sounds like a daunting task (it is), you're in luck. The Billboard Experiment wanted to know if there was a formula that could determine which songs …
