Ariel is a great teacher. He is patient and he encouraged in a great way. I am very happy and your school should be very proud to count with such a great teacher. I am a true beginner and he gave me vocal and breathing exercises that will hopefully lead me to tune and sing. I am a teacher of English and my goal is not to perform . However I realized that singing is a very relaxing and therapeutic hobby. thanks a lot!!

My 13 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Ariel. He is an excellent teacher, very meticulous and knowledgeable. We highly recommend him!

I’ve played some of the world’s most renowned stages. With numerous critically-acclaimed albums, EPs, and singles under my belt, I’ve mastered all stages of recording and producing under the tutelage of some of the finest producers in the business.

"Adam is an exceptional teacher!! His passion for percussion radiates off him and is contagious to others. Adams best quality as an instructor however, is his unshakable patience and light, funny sense of humor that keeps me not only interested in digesting difficult material but also makes me want to come back for more. Adam makes you feel as if no question is a dumb question and is happy to take you along the journey that is mastering an instrument. Great teacher and great guy!! Highly recommended!! his chops are unreal I might add!!"

"I am 14 years old and have been taking drum lessons for about 6 years from Mr. Mike. I don’t think I can find the words to say how awesome he is! I only liked drumming when I started with Mr. Mike, but he has inspired me to absolutely love drumming. He has been the only drum teacher I have ever had I would be crushed if I ever lost him as my teacher. He takes the time to teach me the music I love to play and learn. He also teaches me the not so fun stuff like reading music and rudiments to make me a great drummer. No matter what Mr. Mike teaches me, he always makes it fun. I look forward to my lessons with Mr. Mike; he is simply the best!

Mr. Mike is not only my drum teacher, he is also my friend. Every time I arrive at his studio, he always asks me about my life and how I’ve been, and he makes me laugh all the time. I hardly remember my life before Mr. Mike. I look up to him, and he has always been a great role model to me. Mr. Mike has inspired me to be as accomplished as he is on the drums when I grow up. Even when I am struggling to learn hard parts, he is always supportive and helps me through it. Mr. Mike never makes me feel bad about myself; in fact, he has made me more confident not only as a drummer but as a person. I think the world of Mr. Mike. I think he has helped to shape me to be the person I am today.

Mr. Mike is one of the kindest and warm-hearted people I have ever met. He inspires me to be the best drummer I can be. Mr. Mike is a huge part of my life, and I hope he always will be. I am so lucky to have him as my teacher. They don’t make words to express how highly I recommend him to be your drum teacher."

I've found Murray to be a ray of sunshine and so patient with his instructions.
I'm already playing songs only five lessons in. Online lessons are a breeze as he has multiple camera angles to help you see what's going on.
Can't say enough good about these lessons and Murray's instruction.

"GREAT INSTRUCTOR!! I am 48yo and was apprehensive about trying to learn something new at my age. I've had three lessons thu far and have been enjoying this to the fullest. Rufus keeps the lessons fun and interestng by adding different assignments for me to work on throughout my week. The key is to practice; which, I have embraced and I actually like. I bought a drum set after my 2nd lesson. Rufus came to my house to help me set everything up and tune my drums. He blessed my drums by playing for a few minutes while I stood back and grinned like a 10yo. I jumped on next hoping my drums would sound the same as when he played (they didn't). But that's okay, they will someday. I will be a student with him for a while!!"

"I can't recommend Mike enough! I always wanted to learn drums but it felt daunting and somewhat inaccessible to me. From my first lesson with Mike, that changed completely. I left his studio feeling like I could absolutely learn to play. In just one lesson I learned a lot about proper technique, reading music, etc. without feeling overwhelmed or bored. Mike explains everything clearly while also making it fun to learn. And, most importantly, he has a clear (and proven) structure to his lesson plans. Concepts are taught in a cumulative manner so that each lesson you make progress towards a clearly defined goal - a goal that you get to help define, be it a specific song you want to learn or a certain skill/level to attain. Mike is knowledgeable about the subject matter and provides insightful tips and homework to make sure you're learning the right skills in a fun and challenging manner. If you want to learn drums, Mike is your guy."
