Private Bongo Teacher

I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

Private Bongo Teacher

After years of playing with some of the best musicians on the planet, as well as learning from the great masters of the past, giving clinics and guiding countless students through their musical paths, I've built gradual methods of internalizing rhythm and movement that are meant to not only help the student learn that which they're pursuing in the most efficient way possible, but inspire them along the way -- cultivating their passion and encouraging them to engage with the material with the type of fascination and curiosity that brings about the best student they can be.

About Daniel

Touring drummer, educator, multi-instrumentalist, clinician and composer, collaborated with artists such as Avishai Cohen, Pat Metheny, John Patitucci and others, teaching private lessons in Brooklyn. The methods of internalizing rhythm I've developed are intended at providing the student with an

My students have fun and learn quickly! I teach all skill levels and all styles of percussion, specializing in drum set, orchestra percussion, and four mallet marimba. Every beginner that takes a lesson with me with be able to play a drum beat and a snare drum piece on day one. After a few more lessons, they will be learning songs and creating their own drum beats! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

Dave has been great with helping improving my son's drum techniques. He is patient, yet to the point and doesn't waste anyone's time with making sure the student understands the lesson. We are looking forward to many more lessons in the future.

Dave adjusted the lessons to be appropriate and engaging for my young learner, yet every session introduced a vital piece of theory or technique. We are very pleased with this class!

"We have had two lessons with Murray. My 8 year old loves her lessons. We have had other teachers in the past and he is by far the best. My daughter is engaged, excited, and is learning quickly. Murray makes learning fun! He encourages and explains and rewards with clapping and laughing!!! He knows his stuff and can relate and engage even over the internet. We love this teacher!"
