Andrei P.

Matawan, NJ

I have played and studied drums as a secondary instrument for quiet sometime. I have had some accomplished drum students.

I teach all the basic rudiments and have a strong focus on learning beats by ear. I like to teach my drum students to read and do rolls with a strong concentration on the snare drum.

About Andrei

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Piano, and beginner Drums.

I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial
lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and support them along the way. I feel every student deserves to learn to read music and I will concentrate on this with them.

Lessons are taught in my personal music studio; it is a laid-back, family friendly environment. There may be specific books and supplies I recommend purchasing (these will enhance the success of a budding musician). I will most likely also hand out sheet music of songs to practice and may recommend certain artists within specific genres for the students to listen to and familiarize themselves with.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical/Flamenco guitar. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz, etc. I am always learning, and am willing to learn so that my students get the best experience possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Through my methods of teaching a student could excel, learn, and become an accomplish musician at any age. I work within the age group that is, to teach in the level of that student instead of above them.I have help students to get into bands and become songwriters. I show students how to practice within 15 minutes and become productive in ideas and have fun in the process all ages could have fun. I am one of those individuals who love to teach music and my reward is when you learn and feel good about your studies in the instrument so my last words to conclude in all of this is “have fun and enjoy the beauty of music.”

I am emphatic about learning music I cover all the grounds in music such as theory the basics to harmony and my favorite songwriting and get you to play what you like
I have worked with all ages and the one thing I know in the beginning is to make that student feel comfortable and to get the attention from that student so they can learn, play, and most importantly have fun with it.
I show students time management in their studies how to practice in such a little time I plan each lesson and if the lesson is not right for that day I quickly go into a second plan. I can always detect if the plan does not go well because there is one thing a teacher must know and that is to teach in the level of the student and not beyond so they can succeed properly and move on to the next level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private teaching studio in a finished basement a whole drum kit, 3 keyboards, has several guitars and a bass for students to use at his home, microphones for voice and plenty of music stands

*** Specialties ***

Having taken guitar lessons as a kid myself I know the importance of having a patient passionate teacher Dr. Vincent possesses all those qualities and more. A qualified teacher, with a PhD, who knows his stuff but is also able to break down his vast knowledge into bits that even a middle schooler could understand. My son is excelling at his base guitar thanks to Dr. Vincent and is developing a love for his instrument I hadn't expected.

Marshall G.

Randolph, NJ

I currently play drums for my band, Tribal Days. I started playing drums in 2007, but until 2013 I was playing bass guitar and keyboards. We went through many different drummers until my bandmates asked me to play drums full time. Since then I have been taking the drums seriously, practicing daily.

About Marshall

I teach music lessons on most instruments. My primary instrument is flute, but I am also a skilled pianist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, and cellist. I also play the violin, viola, saxophone, clarinet, bassoon, and oboe. I work around the clock practicing to develop my skills on all instruments. Brass is my weakest link, but I plan on reaching at least high school proficiency in all instruments at some point. I am pursuing a career as a performing flute virtuoso, and it is my belief that a well-rounded education in all other instruments will make me a better flutist.

I play drums in a band
called Tribal Days. Tribal Days is Chris Gennone, Andrew Merclean, Harrison Bieth, and myself. I played bass and keyboards for several years. We have recorded one full length record and another one is nearing completion. I'm experienced in digital editing, mixing, and sound engineering.

I am also a professional painter, although I am devoting most of my time to music right now. My preferred mediums are acrylic, oil, watercolor, and pencil. I studied art intensively in high school and continued to study in college. I won the Painting Award in my senior year of high school at West Morris Mendham. Although my focus has shifted to music, I do offer art lessons!

I was fortunate to have the experience of studying both Ballet and Ice Dancing from the time I was 5 until I was 17. I studied at New Jersey Ballet for a long time. I was coached in Ice Dance for many years by Olympic medalists, and I competed in Junior Nationals in 2005. Both disciplines had a profound effect on my musicianship and I continue to practice stretching exercises and sometimes practice Ice Dance for fun. By 2007 I had decided to study music full time.

Harmonica · Online
Brand new music student learning harmonica. Jimmy has been great working with a new student having no background in music. He provides both music theory and simple to follow instructions for learning to play. Taking lessons online has not been an issue. Follow-up for each lesson is provided by email and Jimmy is very responsive to questions between lessons.

I'll continue taking lessons with Jimmy and expand to other instruments.

Daniel G.

Kenilworth, NJ

I teach a wide range of styles including (but definitely not limited to!) rock, pop, hip hop, jazz, and latin. A beginner student would typically begin with rudiments and basic beats, and then move on to more style-specific techniques.

About Daniel

Hi, I'm Dan! My expansive musical background is centered in drums/percussion and music technology. I hold a BM in Sound Engineering with a concentration in classical percussion from William Paterson University, and I currently serve as the percussion instructor for Chatham High School's marching band, as well as the principal drum instructor at School of Rock Clark and Professional Music Academy Woodbridge. Recently, I designed sound for Festival of the Arts Boca's production of The Magic Flute. I've also received album credits while interning at The House of Loud Studio, including one for dig
ital editing on Bring Me The Horizon's album "Sempiternal".
I believe that making education fun is imperative to make learning percussion and music technology engaging. Taking lessons should teach more than just how to play drums or record a song; lessons should build confidence, improve focus, establish a good work ethic, and, overall, make the student happy!
