I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

Songwriting for me is the best part. I’ve written 50 good and 50 bad songs at least. Practice makes perfect but inspiration is hard to force. Lets understand the complexities of theory and simplicities of powerful lyrics.

Great instructor, very patient and knowledgable, Perfect for beginning players. Very chill, enjoyable experience.
John Bonacci
I had no clue how to play a bass guitar. I was fortunate thru the college he was teaching at to be honored to have Scott teach me at my beginner level, the basics of bass guitar. His patience with me was much appreciated as again, this was new to me and at the time being 69 years old, I wasn’t a quick learner. After several sessions, I was able to play basic cords, study the notes on the frets thru his lesson plan. I was sad that Scott left the college for NYC, but was very happy for him as he wanted to pursue his masters degree. Thanks to his patience and excellent teaching skills, I was able to continue lessons with another instructor and not embarrass myself as I had minute skills that helped me become a little more than a beginner. I am still going at it and loving every second but it was Scott’s patience and teaching skills that kept the fire lit to continue pursuing my love of the bass guitar. I can’t thank Scott enough and I wish him well with his goal of a master’s degree.
Sal
Scott is a great teacher and an even better friend. His background in music makes him unlike any other instructor. I’d highly recommend him to anyone, at any skill level.

I teach each student differently, have for many years. Beginning, intermediate or advanced. Some teachers start everyone out with the same boring "Twinkle twinkles Little Star" type book, even adults. I teach accordingly to their abilities. You get better at teach, by teaching for years, period! I have been playing since 1977, and teaching since 1995. I hope to "Hear you Here".

About Joseph

I have been playing since 1975, and been teaching guitar since 1995. Played in many bands since 1980. I write and record my own music in my recording studio. I currently perform solo at various places. I am well versed at chord, scale and music theory.. plus I'M FUNNY!! (that is free though).. :)

She had very effective advice for training my voice to go higher ("less effort on high notes"). She incorporated singing to help my speaking voice and overall made me feel like she really cared about my improvement.

"Rebecca has been the most helpful coach I have ever worked with! Some of what she has guided me in was tricky to do online but she always finds a way to make activities work. It is a fun class, and I can tell my skills are growing a lot from working with her.

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction."
