Ed R.

Norristown, PA

About Ed

Hi, My name is Ed and listed in the different sections of this page are: a very brief bio, an explanation of my approach, and a description of what I and my studio have to offer. I am extremely enthusiastic and passionate about what I do, and being able to pass that on is a joy. Please read on, and I hope to hear from you soon!

I have 16 years teaching experience as well as extensive playing and touring experience in all styles and genres, which gives me the insight to know what is most important for really playing the instrument.
I attended Bucks County Community College and West Chester
University. I also studied privately with
Ken Miller (Philly Pops Orchestra tympanist), John Alberti and Martin Bradfield.

I am currently a member of The Chuck Anderson Trio on the Dreambox Media Label. I am also a member of five other bands and freelance and record with many others...everyone from former members of Bon Jovi, to Marvin Hamlisch, and some completely unexpected names like Joe Frazier And The Knockouts. Yes, I know, that's pretty amusing, and Joe couldn't sing...but I wasn't going to tell him!

I have an extensive collection of books and videos that I draw from for my students, and to personally improve at my craft. This is not a sideline, or part-time job for me...this is my life, and my career!

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons I strive to make the maximum progress possible, while also having as much fun as possible. This is accomplished by imparting the most valuable, useful, and beneficial information in a fun and relaxed, low pressure environment, always with the students goals and priorities first and foremost. I also like to keep the student challenged at their current ability level.

For beginning students I stress basic fundamentals, just as you would in sports. It makes progress come at a much faster clip and avoids making time consuming corrections later. The longer you play with bad habits, the harder they are to break.

For more advanced students, I assess their current abilities, determine if any problems need to be addressed, and with their goals in mind, come up with the proper plan of action.

Having been self taught till entering college I understand all ends of the spectrum. In my career I have come across three separate groups of musicians:

1) Those who have good ears, but can't read.
2) Those who read well, but can't play without music in front of them.
3) Those with great ears who also read well.

Number 3 is obviously the best of all possible worlds and what I strive to achieve with all my students. Being accomplished in both areas enables them to be prepared for anything they will come across, and gives them a distinct advantage over their peers.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a state of the art drum studio, beyond anything else I have ever seen, with everything from a top of the line V-Drum kit (electronic drums) and several acoustic sets that I rotate occasionally to keep interest level high. As opposed to many stores, schools and homes...there are no sax players in the next studio, no guitars blaring, no kids running around, no distractions! We only hear what we want to hear! It's so much easier to maintain focus on the task at hand.

One of the pluses of the electronic set is when a student is playing along with music, we can just plug an iPod, Kindle, whatever, into the system, dial in the perfect matching volume between music and drums...and not go deaf. No muss, no fuss, no headphones needed, unless the student wants them...I have plenty.

I am in my own building, so unlike many of the shoebox sized studios i have worked in, I have a lot of space (17'x22'), a waiting area for parents, and since it's one open area, if parents come in the building they are sitting in on the lesson. There is ample parking and I am conveniently located near a major intersection, and right next to a major shopping center (Wal-Mart, Staples. Weiss Supermarket, Pep Boys, etc.). In fact many parents go shopping while their children are taking their lessons. Some even walk! I'm that close.

I am also a Certified Plus drum dealer, so if students need some equipment, we can usually handle that too.

*** Specialties ***
I adapt my style to each student and usually hand write everything for quite awhile. There's a lot to cover and it enables me to break from standard procedure when beneficial. I play and teach all styles and genres, so I feel comfortable with pretty much everything.
I use numerous books for many different purposes well beyond the scope of what's listed below.

My son has been taking lessons with Ed since he was 5. Ed was very patient dealing with a high energy child who had a limited attention span. Eight years later, we are still seeing Ed weekly for lessons and my son has turned into a well-rounded musician. Ed tailors the lessons to my son's musical interests and takes an interest in what is going on in his life.

We have gone to see Ed perform in several venues and he always takes the time to talk to us during his break. I highly recommend Drum Lessons with Ed for those at any skill level.

Adrienne K.

Philadelphia, PA

About Adrienne

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, as a young girl, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher. After the first lesson, I was hooked! My 10 years of piano study and 8 years of flute background helped me advance quickly at the harp while starting at the age of 16.

I began my higher education at Penn State University where I entered as a flute major and continued my harp and piano studies. After playing principal harp with the Penn State Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, I realized harp to be my
true calling and switched my major instrument. I graduated from Penn State in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and completed a Professional Performance Certificate on the harp at Penn State in 2010.

I received a Masters of Music in Harp Performance at Temple University, where I studied with the principal harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Elizabeth Hainen. I have been lucky to have played some of the best orchestral repertoire in some of the most amazing concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Heinz Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Kimmel Center.

I believe to be an exceptional teacher you must be able to teach through example and be an exemplary performer which is why I continue to perform professionally throughout Philadelphia (and because I love it!). I have played with many groups throughout Philadelphia such the Curtis Institute, The Mendelssohn Club, the Landsdowne Symphony, St. Peters by the Sea, Zelda Symphony of Goddesses, Music At Penn's Woods, Nittany Lion Symphony, and Williamsport Symphony.
I am a classically trained musician who loves playing around with pop and jazz in her spare time. My philosophy is that I will teach whichever genre will inspire the student to sit down and practice!

I will encourage you or your child to become the best musician he or she would like to become, and l will tailor my teaching to my student's learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are disciplined and serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

I promise if you start taking music lessons with me, you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner!

Luis G.

Ardmore, PA

About Luis

I am father to 3 girls [Elaine, Grace and Emma] so I'm very comfortable with kids of all ages. I studied Music Performance with a concentration in Classical Guitar at Eastern University, where I met my wife Allison who currently teaches Voice and Piano with Take Lessons. I received an Honorable Discharge for 8 years in the US Army and work at The University of Pennsylvania in the School of Medicine, which I also attend. I teach lessons privately and through take lessons just for the love of it.

I'm very easy going and patient. I focus on technique and music reading skills rather than buildi
ng repertoire. I would rather a student that is confident in their ability to play a few songs to a high standard than an unsure student that can play many to a lower standard.

As far as my own musical interests, I love classical guitar and the folk/singer songwriter genre. Artists I listen to regularly include The Swell Season(Glen Hansard), Gregory Alan Isakov, Iron and Wine, The Milk Carton Kids, Simon and Garfunkel, M.Ward, Of Monsters & Men, Nick Drake, Elliot Smith, Ray LaMontagne, The Mountain Goats, Andrew Bird, Dawes, Neutral Milk Hotel, Woodpigeon. I'm just realizing that could go on for a long time... I stay up to speed on most contemporary artists for the sake of my students. I regularly teach songs current pop artists in the interest of maintaining student engagement.

My real passion is in Classical Guitar music. There are few things that give me more joy than playing classical guitar. I love any opportunity to share that with someone eager to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons I like to start by reviewing what has been learned in the previous lesson, making sure to address any concerns before teaching something new. To ensure the student is truly learning and maintaining what I teach during our lessons we will do some short musical exercises which apply to that week's lesson, as well as some musical repertoire that reinforces the new principles taught in that lesson. I feel that correct repetitive practice of these exercises and music will ensure happiness with your progression as a musician. I do my best to learn the musical interests of my students and to personalize each lesson/assignment so that they remain engaged and excited.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have small studio space connected to my family room with a Piano and my guitars/amps (and any other instruments my wife and I have collected over the years). Parents can sit in studio or relax in the family room during lessons. It's a nice quiet suburban area and I have off street parking just outside the door.

Warning: I have friendly cats! They will rub up against your leg and may even purr loudly! In the most extreme cases, they have even been known to fall asleep while snuggling in an unsuspecting parents lap.

this teacher is the best

I think you should really pick Luis G. because he is very good at explaining things to me. Another thing I really like about having him as a teacher is that some times I forget he's my teacher ; I feel like he's one of my friends. That's somethings that I think is great because you can be open and not feel weird around him at all. I think He is really good at what he does and thats teaching Guitar and making people have fun with it!

Tyler E.

Philadelphia, PA

About Tyler

Hi There! My name is Tyler and my younger pupils call me Mr. Tyler. I am a Philadelphia native with a background in the Performing Arts. I have taught children ages 5+ and yep! that means adults too. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, working out, attending shows, playing video games, doing research, contemplating, shopping, teaching and of course furthering my craft. I offer great advice and always aim to make a positive impact on the life of another. I believe there is a lesson to be learned often and we could never know too much. The human mind has an unlimited capacity. Theater a
nd Film are my specialty and Music is my second love and I've directed for the stage and choir.

Whether you are preparing for a role, school play, variety show, needing to be coached, audition or need to brush up on your skills, then I am here for you! Acting can be very therapeutic, challenging and fulfilling! Music can be very liberating and visceral. Piano is a blissful introduction to all the different flavors of music. Writing is an intellectual outlet crucial to all of humanity. If you can learn to express yourself through these mediums then you will go far! :-)
