Mark S.

Philadelphia, PA

About Mark

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician.
I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them.

Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.
After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.
I have been a musician for 16 years. I have played rock, pop, classical, jazz, and electronic music professionally for over 10 years. I have performed in the U.S. and Europe with many talented artists, and I have won various awards in performance and academics.
Although I enjoy a busy professional career in music, I am extremely committed to teaching the young and casual learner as well as career oriented individuals. At this stage in my career, I am enthusiastic towards the education and development of talent.

My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.
Apart from music, I have been an English teacher for eight years. I recently completely work my Master's degree in music theory. I look forward to sharing my skills and experience with you or a member of your family.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons usually follow the following steps:
Presentation of material Instruction Practice Performance
In a typical lesson, we may take a look at a piece of music through an audio or video recording. After we listen and/or watch, we discuss and examine the music. For example, this could be as simple as saying, What do think about this part? It could also be more in depth - What's the time signature? Next, we focus on a specific part to learn. The student learns by watching demonstrations, making attempts at playing it, and listening to suggestions and instruction. Just as there are many ways to teach there are also many ways to learn. I try to incorporate as many different methods as possible while being mindful of different learning styles to ensure that the student is successful. Finally, when the student has become sufficiently proficient on a piece of music, we'll play it together as a team. Sometimes, I accompany a vocalist on guitar to get a pop/rock feel. For my guitar or bass students, I trade between lead and accompany roles. I may bring other accompanying instruments to the lesson for a different vibe. The idea is to have fun playing music, and I like to have fun.
People often ask if I am strict or laid back. I am neither. We work hard, but we'€™re also so focused and motivated that the time flies by before we know it.
Lastly, I never ask my students to copy anyone. I encourage my them to be original. The music I give them is only a guide. The goal is to motivate them to play what is in their hearts.

Mark has been great! I don't fit easily into a student level because I have had some piano training before -- but not in a long time. He has picked up very quickly on my skill level and has been very good about letting me pick my own music and helping me to learn. I feel that I am progressing as fast--or eve faster--than I had hoped. I highly recommend him for piano!

Tim is great, he is teaching my son so much, he loves going to his lessons and learns so much from Tim, he taught him how to read music and the different types of drums and the different sounds they make, He tells everyone he is taking drum lessons. Tim answers any questions we may have and knows the drums very well, he is also very flexible and outgoing, Tirstan has lots of fun and enjoys his lessons very much. I will recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a drum instructor.

Tim is a great teacher. He introduced Teddy to the different types of drums and cymbals. He allowed Teddy to play the different drums so that he could hear that each drum has a different sound. He also showed him how could change the pitch of the drum. Teddy really enjoys his lessons.

Brian M.

Marlton, NJ

About Brian

Hey! My name is Brian and I teach guitar, bass guitar, and music theory out of Duke's Bike Music Studio in Marlton, NJ. A little about myself, I'm 33, married and have two kids. I've been playing guitar and bass since I was 12 and professionally teaching music since 2008. Aside from playing in various bands in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, I'm a guitarist, upright bassist, and vocalist in the 553rd Air National Guard Band of the Northeast. I'm also the Music Director for the 553rd's popular music ensemble. I studied music and music education at Camden County College and Berklee Col
lege of Music.
Over the years, I've developed a method of teaching that uses songs my students like as the example for learning technique and music theory. My students are of all ages and range from never-played-a-note to gigging musicians looking to change things up a bit. Duke's Bike Music Studio is conveniently located near the Promenade shopping center. My rates are competitive and my schedule is flexible. Hit me up and we can get you scheduled right away.
Thanks!

Brian is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. I have gone through some challenging phases while learning basic music theory and technical skills on bass guitar, and Brian has been instrumental (see what I did there?) in encouraging me through those bumps in the road. Learning to read and perform music can sometimes seem daunting, but he's really great at breaking down the information into fun exercises and simple explanations. You can tell he really enjoys what he does.

I decided to pick up the guitar in my 30s and soon realized I was in over my head. I spent a few hours with Brian and he has been tremendous in helping me progress. He is a personable guy and has a knack for explaining instructions and techniques clearly. He gives a ton of feedback and has an eye/ear for correcting issues. Also, Brian makes music theory very approachable which has given me a greater appreciation and understanding of the complexities of music. I highly reccomend.

Brian is amazing. He is wonderfully patient with my 10 year old son and knows how to get thru to younger students and communicate with them etc. We are very proud of our son's progress towards being a really great guitar player and it's because of Brian's patience, ability to communicate as well as his knowledge and ability to teach. His rates are very affordable and he's quite flexible with our family's ever changing schedule as we are super busy

I like to start off by having the student tell me what kind of music s/he is interested in, what goals (if any) s/he has, and assess how I can best use my experience to help him/her to succeed.
