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!

Andrew M.

Philadelphia, PA

About Andrew

Andrew is a Philadelphia area bassist, guitarist, composer, sound designer, audio engineer, and teacher. As a recent graduate of University of the Arts with a MM in jazz studies, Andrew has had many opportunities to study with some of the best musicians that Philadelphia has to offer. Andrew performs in a variety of styles from rock to jazz and R&B. For Andrew, music is the most fun a person can have and this idea is the foundation for his instruction. Andrew aims to inspire his students, in the way that his great teachers have inspired him. He emphasizes improvisation, confidence, versatilit
y, good habits, a strong foundation, and the concept of music as a language.

*** Lesson Details ***
Though I cultivate a laid-back atmosphere, I take music and teaching very seriously. I expect beginners to put in an honest effort, and expect more advanced players to be enthusiastic about the material I give them, and to give it the time and attention it deserves. Ultimately, a student will only get out what he or she puts in. It can and should be fun, (and if It isn't, I'll figure out a way to make it fun.) Students will learn to be creative every time they play. They will learn to interact with others (musically) and to rely on their ears and intuition. I try to focus on producing a well-rounded student who can play with emotion and spontaneity, yet has knowledge of music theory, history, convention, and other essentials of a more academic nature. I cater to the student's interests and tailor my lessons to the student's specific needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home: studio with music stands, guitar/bass amps, music library and materials, keyboard, recording mixer, guitars (acoustic & electric), electric bass, fretless bass, upright bass, and computer with various music software, and a wipe off board.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Car, Music stand, instruments, amplifiers, Ipad

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz, Rock, Pop, and Contemporary music.

Coming from a beginner-level guitar player who has previously taken guitar courses, Andrew's definitely extremely talented and, equally importantly, very insightful and understanding when it comes to teaching. He is patient, smart, draws good examples for understanding concepts, and is enjoyable to play alongside with.

i've been taking bass lessons from andrew for several years and have nothing but great things to say about his teaching abilities. he is organized yet flexible, allowing you to take the lessons the direction you want to take it. he can really connect to the way you think and channel that to advance your skills. my only complaint i don't see him enough, but that's my fault.

Great Instructor

Andrew went above and beyond what I ever expected. He did a great job of covering rudiments and technical aspects, while simultaneously focusing on the "art" of bass playing. He was very aware of my skill level and responsive to my needs as a student. I highly recommend him for beginners and imagine that he would be great for more skilled students as well

Ethan R.

Philadelphia, PA

About Ethan

Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia eight years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs,
and musical preferences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to have a fun, loving relationship with music. I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back with questions and stories of their progress. In each lesson, I balance technical skills, ear training, and music theory to assure that each student walks away a complete musician, all structured around your musical goals.

I look forward to helping you on your musical journey.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must provide their own instrument and assigned method books. I will provide a music stand if necessary, and other useful instructional tools (metronome, tuner, etc.)

*** Home Studio ***
I offer lessons in my home located just off of Broad Street in South Philadelphia near the Tasker-Morris subway stop. I am equipped with a well-playing upright piano and plenty of space for musical activities. There is ample street parking in the area during the afternoon and early evening, and our living room is available to parents while students take their lesson. Students who travel to me for lessons gain all the benefits of performing on a piano, rather than an electric keyboard, and have access to many more resources that I am able to offer from my home, such as recordings and method books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize teaching younger students fundamentals in music in a fun and exciting way, as well as teaching the importance of learning music to exceed personal and educational goals.

My experience as a student (piano) with "Ethan" as my Teacher was extremely warm, friendly,comfortable, and I feel as a middle-aged woman, I will with no doubt become a "piano player". Ethan was "created" to effectively teach anyone - "anything!". This is my first time in 12yrs. interacting with a person via the internet. I am very pleased with "Take Lessons and having "Ethan" a part of their team. I am very pleased! :)
