About jacob

The first time I played a drum set was in 3rd grade music class. I was hooked. I now love the feeling of getting a piece of music, scratching through it a few times, making mistakes, fixing mistakes, rehearsing, rehearsing more, then playing it on stage for a stale audience that ends screaming for an encore.

In Elementary School I experienced 2 types of music lessons.
#1 Lessons that were too structured and boring because students were not able to have success at each lesson. The focus was on the structure vs. enjoyment.
#2 Lessons that were very fun and challenging to work towards
because students could see progress each week.
From that experience I am very confident that my enthusiasm towards learning percussion will be challenging and rewarding.

My music career has taken me anywhere from small church venues to theater orchestras including:
-Kensington Community Church (Troy, MI)
-The Rochester College Concert Band (Rochester, MI)
-The Box Theatre (Mt. Clemens, MI)
-Hope Community Church (Mt. Laurel, NJ)
-Liberti Church (Center City Philadelphia)
-Epic Church (Center City Philadelphia)

*** Lesson Details ***
You will soon learn that I am reliable, organized and high energy. Lessons are organized but flexible just like any good drummer.

Objectives:
#1 You will be on the fast track in school music programs. (You will do better in other classes as well)
#2 You will learn to be self-disciplined with practice. (You will have more confidence in challenging situations)
#3 You will be more confident in your ability, musical and non-musical.

Typical Lessons:
-We will review the previous lesson to measure progress and make any corrections necessary.
-New and challenging material will be offered with instructor help.
-Students will take the new material home to practice.

Practice:
I know that the best students we turn out are the students who practice the most. 99% of the learning comes through practice. No one learned to walk in 5 minutes, just like no one learns music in 5 minutes. Practice and mistakes are the difference between average and unbelievably good. If you want to be good the time spent in the lesson is just the recipe. You (student) are the one who makes it happen through regular practice. I remember hating practice sometimes when I was a kid. Practice should be fun. Focused practice should be really challenging and really fun. The feeling of satisfaction going from not being able to play something to learning it and nailing it is the best! This only comes through practice.

Depending on level after basic lessons (1-7 months) students will be able to keep simple time, have basic ability to use all tools in their drum kit and be able to include simple fills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio specifically for drumming, an electronic drum set, an acoustic set, amps, recording equipment, seating for parents with video feed so that you can check in during lessons.

Students should be able to practice anywhere anytime. They don't need fancy equipment, just willingness to practice. I can help you get creative!

*** Travel Equipment ***
To be determined based on the student's needs and location.

*** Specialties ***
On a typical day you will catch me listening to and playing songs by:

Bastille, Imagine Dragons, Paramore, Lorde, RHCP, Adele, Hillsong, Coldplay, U2, Zac Brown Band, Cream, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Journey, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, the Stones, Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Earth, Wind, Fire; ZZ Top, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Diamond Rio, Boston, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, The 4 Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Bob Marley, etc.

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
12 x 12 room...equipped with all instruments:
piano---Casio 88 key fully weighted,
guitar,
bass,
amps,
computers,
and recording software

*** Travel Equipment ***
If students do not possess the instruments they want to play, I will provide all the necessary equipment for them.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock blues, jazz, classical, and pop music.

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!

Mary W.

Medford, NJ

About Mary

Music degree from Lawrence University and Conservatory in Appleton, WI. Graduate work in conducting, piano, and vocal pedagogy at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Also certified in Kindermusik for ages newborn to 7.

My studio, since 1993 is located in the back of my house and is in a family friendly location.

As my education originally was music education, elementary and secondary, I have gone on to be certified in teaching adults, both beginning and returning. There is so much piano and vocal educational material geared to the pre-school, the elementary, Jr-Sr high and Adul
t beginner and I promise we will have fun while learning.....

Anyone can learn an instrument and anyone can learn many different styles. Lessons will be geared toward your interests and goals, which we can work on at your lesson also.

The greatest virtues of a music teacher are passion, patience, understanding, and communicating. You will experience this in the studio. Give yourself a treat of two months of lessons and I promise you will be playing and/or singing better than you expected.

Member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs),

*** Lesson Details ***
I am generally easy going and laid-back and will work with you to obtain specific goals such as a piece you would really like to learn. I can be strict if assignments are not followed or if there is no progression; we need to analyze why that is. I use many teaching methods as there are many different learning styles. The series I am currently using are Faber, Alfred, and Celebrate Piano! for pianists. Many singers are in Broadway, Disney, and/or English Reliquary and Italian Arias. There are so many wonderful choices! I can guarantee after three months you will be playing some music you like, and you will be reading music, and able to perform if you wish (starting small). With singing you will have basic knowledge of proper posture, breathing, and increased range. I also so enjoy people and communicating so you will feel comfortable taking lessons, and I believe that is one major factor of success in learning an instrument: the student-teacher relationship And second for children, especially the young, is the parent-teacher relationship .

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: Yamaha baby grand piano, Kawaii studio upright and keyboard, Yamaha keyboard, recording abilities, computer software, couch and two chairs, parents can sit in on lesson. Also have computer programs for note learning, composition, as well as giving you apps to download.

*** Specialties ***
Different methods for different students. Piano: mostly Faber and Alfred series. "Prodigy": Aaron/Thompson series. I've also had graduate study in teaching the Adult Beginner! As I was a church music director 1994 till last September, I am very familiar with traditional and contemporary sacred music, learning and performing. If you also wish to combine singing and accompanying yourself on piano or guitar lessons can be tailored.

Mary is very knowledgeable and personable. She gives excellent instruction and gentle correction in a way that makes you want to do your best in every aspect of the learning process. Mary is also very attentive to your needs and your development as a student. She knows when to allow for the errors that a beginner like myself will make, and when to present challenges that will push you, and show you that your skill and talent are growing. She also gives homework assignments that will help you grow your talent when you're in between lessons, which I really appreciate. I absolutely recommend Mary to anyone wishing to take music 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
