Timothy M.

Lakewood, OH

About Timothy

I graduated from the Los Angeles Music Academy in Pasadena, California, where I had the chance to study under some of LA's top professional drummers, including Ralph Humphrey, Joe Porcaro, and Michael Packer. Before that, I studied with Lynn Glassock at the University of North Carolina. I've been playing drums for over 20 years. Right now I'm busy playing with the party/wedding band Modern Bliss, and I've spent the last year performing up and down the east coast, the midwest, and in Canada. *** Lesson Details *** I've studied with some incredible players and teachers and I am always excited to share what I've learned with other drummers. We can cover a number or musical genres in our lessons, from rock to jazz to Afrocuban. Other topics can include sight reading, chart writing and ...

About Daniel

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country. I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument. *** Lesson Details *** My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application. I will instruct them to quickly grasp the lay-out of ...

I'm very happy with my teacher. I feel very comfortable trying to learn something that is new to me and Daniel always answers all of my questions.

Instructor is very good and easy to work with. I seem to be making progress (slowly).However, I found an "app" called ultimate guitar chords that give fingering for all notes and lets you hear alternate (simpler) fingering to test how it would sound.Depending on how that comes out will may change my plans to continue with lessons after the first four.

Jeffrey B.

Cleveland, OH

I have taught for 14 years, and have been playing for 20! I took lessons in marching and drum set from various teachers. I used to teach teens at Rock Camps in MI. We would form bands and learn songs together to perform at big shows or festivals. I also taught classes like Marketing & Branding, Rock History, and general band life. I love drums and percussion and will continue to learn as much as I can. I like to think that my students don't just learn from me, but teach me new things too.

She is a great teacher for my daughter. My daughter suffers from adhd, and Sarah is very patient with my daughter. My daughter has had 3 lessons from Sarah so far and I couldn't be happier with the results so far. On top of everything, Sarah has been patient with me as well, answering questions as I have no knowledge of drums. She has even saved me money by telling me what to buy for my daughter, and what to hold off on for now. I would definitely recommend Sarah.

I am very impressed with Sarah's lessons. My son can be nervous when being taught something new but he has been pretty relaxed with Sarah, I really like how she interacts with him. I can tell that he feels no pressure and I think he is picking things up well, I am impressed with what he can do so far. He wants to keep learning with Sarah and I am happy to support that. I highly recommend Sarah as a drum teacher!

Anthony T.

Brunswick, OH

I have been teaching drum lessons for 15 years and one thing that I have learned throughout the years is that every student is different. I make it my goal to ensure that every student is taught to their needs, desires and inspirations. When I am teaching I don't just go through a checklist, but rather, I search to find what inspires my students. It's important to me that my students are not only motivated to practice, but that they also gain an understanding of how to learn on their own.

About Anthony

My name is Anthony and I am a professional drummer and percussionist that recently moved back to the Cleveland area from NYC (Where I studied and performed for 5 years). I am looking for serious and committed drum/percussion students. I have a degree from the Newschool for Jazz and Contemporary Music and I have more than 15 years of teaching and performing experience. I have toured and performed all over NYC, the united states and in Europe. I am fluent in many different genres of music and I specialize on drum set, cajon and other percussion instruments.

I took lessons with Anthony for more than a year as a complete beginner. His teaching style was responsive to my level of experience (zero at the time), and area(s) of interest. I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons and would highly recommend him as a teacher. He helped to expand my creativity and boldness. I even started transposing music that I had heard so that they can be used in lessons. We started getting into music theory - which was so much fun because he made it very accessible. He is an amazing drummer, good-natured, and very knowledgeable & passionate about percussion.

I began playing drums at age 32. My wife found Anthony by calling local music stores and he came highly recommended. I was a little taken back that I was getting lessons from a 18 year old kid, but wow, he did not disappoint. I took lessons for 4 years with him before he moved to New York, and when he moved back, I began back with him. He also began teaching my then 7 year old son. We both loved working with him. He took the time to make sure you understood what he was teaching and went above the protocol of professionalism. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants the detailed fundamentals of drumming, and the caring nature of your well being in percussion. I give him 10 stars...5 from me and 5 from my son Kyle! Rock on!

I first started taking lessons when I was 13. Anthony was my first and only legitimate teacher (I later tried another and was disappointed). He teaches every student at their own pace and based on how much effort they choose to put into learning their instrument. During times when I was getting lazy he even sat me down and spent part of the lesson just motivating me to get more out of lessons by investing more time practicing; I'll never forget it. Anthony truly taught me everything I knew.

Fast forward: I now drum for the electronic rock/EDM band Day Method which has been scouted by the manager for Guns and Roses, the tour manager for U2, and the manager for Trans Siberian Orchestra. I have performed for tens of thousands of people over the last 10 years, played well over 100 concerts, and am moving to LA in a few months to pursue a record deal. The take away? Whatever your dreams or aspirations, they aren't out of reach and Anthony can give you the tools you need to get you there...Keep rocking!
