Joseph R.

Caldwell, NJ

About Joseph

As an experienced performing musician, I have performed internationally at the Terra Incognita Festival in Canada with "The Tea Club". I have a Bachelor's Degree in Classical Percussion Performance and Music Education. I hold a New Jersey State Teachers Certification for grades K-12. I am fortunate to have studied with great Joe Morello(Take Five, The Dave Brubeck Quartet). I actively perform in multiple music genres and have studied various music styles including Rock, Jazz, Classical and more. Music is my life, and my students receive all the musical knowledge and assistance I have to of
fer.

*** Lesson Details ***
With all students, lessons focus on the student's music interests (Rock, Jazz,Classical,Latin etc.) My lessons focus on Technique, Snare Drum Reading, Drum Set Grooves and styles. Studies in all genres will include the application of these studies when performing music in ensembles. All studies include music reading (notated music) and aural (by ear) learning.
In 3-6 months students will learn proper techniques for several stroke types (Single, Double, Buzz) and many drum set grooves. Students will also learn fills and will begin expressing themselves musically on the drums. Students will also have the opportunity to experience and learn from playing drums with another musician as I will accompany them on Bass or Keyboard. In addition, students will learn to read and perform Percussion and Drum Set music.
More advanced students will focus on sound production (getting great sounds out of drums or percussion instruments), expanded reading (introduction of more complex technical and rhythmic concepts) and improvisation.
For interested students, Mallet Technique and repertoire (Vibraphone, Xylophone, Marimba, Bells) may also be studied.

*** Studio Equipment ***
2 Drum Sets, Vibraphone, Drum Pads, Glockenspiel, Bongos, tambourine, triangle, castanets, shakers, Keyboard and amp, Acoustic Guitar, Bass,

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must provide drums. I will bring a drum pad and stand, Students must have a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz and Rock drum set as well as classical percussion. I also specialize in stick technique based on my former studies with Joe Morello (2004-2008)

Joe has done a tremendous job with my five-year-old son, who, having ADHD, is generally a challenge for his parents and teachers. Joe has made the lessons fun for my son, who is progressing and engaged at a level I never envisioned.

Mr. Tony

Lodi, NJ

About Tony

Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an H
onors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music. Following my true passion, I enrolled in the American Institute of Guitar (AIG), studying under the most sought after Flamenco guitar teacher for the past 20 years, Dennis Koster (author of Keys to Flamenco Guitar) and met the legendary Sabicas in person. At the same time, I began training in the Blues, educating myself on various styles and from various teachers, eventually going all the way to the tracks.

Tony has been teaching me for nine years and he truly believes in teaching his students not only the basics of learning the guitar but why the instrument is such a privilege to play and teaches based on the students ability. He also teaches the history and evolution of the guitar and also facts that i never knew that made me very proud to play such an instrument. He sees the potential in the student and encourages them to go beyond where they think they can go and makes it happen. Tony slowly built up motivation in me to keep exploring on my own and he planted the seed of wanting to practice to the point where playing guitar became one of the most important things in my life and i do not think another teacher could have done the same thing. I started to explore YouTube and teach myself a lot of the songs i wanted to learn starting with chords, then finger picking, then adding percussion, and finally putting all three together in many arrangements. I would never have been able to figure that out or have the motivation to if it was not for the things he taught and showed me. Now he teaches me many new techniques involving flamenco and you really cannot get all of this with someone else. Some other people I know have different teachers and i can tell by the way they talk about them and what they are learning that they do not compare to mine. I am really lucky to have ended up with someone who has such commitment and I am always super excited to keep learning what he has to teach. His knowledge is endless and it blows me away what he shows me. Tony never tries to make any of his lessons boring and he definitely has a talent not many people have. I recommend Tony, 100%.

Tony has worked as guitar accompanist for the past year and a half with our 700+ religious formation students from K-8 as well as our whole church assembly. He has played classical to contemporary Christian music with us and is fantastic. As a teacher myself, I see him as an ideal person to learn from. Tony is patient, kind, knowledgeable and tuned into kids as well as adults. You couldn't want for more in a teacher.

I strongly endorse Tony as a master pop and classical guitar teacher (as well as a dynamic, highly creative guitarist and pop/rock/folk tenor singer). I received a Master’s Degree from the Juilliard School in 1986 in voice, and he and I have worked on a weekly basis at churches and concerts since 2007. His mastery of incredibly rapid finger techniques in all major and minor scales, widely varied strum technique in so many different styles, understanding of audio production and vocal-instrumental microphone usage, as well as soulful improvised counter melodies is unmatched in my experiences. He also taught my son guitar, as well as many of my parishioners at my church, and they went on to playing frequently during church services and many other venues. His manner with children and teens is very gentle, humorous and witty, and is instantly beloved by all who meet him. Throughout my career I have rarely heard an artist who has more artistic and musical impact in concert or religious events than Mr. Tony. And the line of people wishing to meet him after concerts is so long that he does not leave events for more than 90 minutes or more. You cannot do better anywhere than having Mr. Tony as a teacher, colleague or friend.

Rebekah is a thorough and patient violin teacher. When my 7 year old, daughter asked to learn the violin, I was not sure if she had enough of a capacity to focus, which is necessary for playing the violin. Under Rebekah's instruction, she has flourished; she is playing scales, songs, and reading music. After each session, Rebekah reviews with me the homework she has assigned to my daughter. Thanks to Rebekah, my daughter is developing a real appreciation for music, while enjoying the learning process. I highly recommend Rebekah!

My guitar lesson with Stefano was excellent! He is very dedicated to what he does and how he teaches. The book that he has recommended is an excellent book for beginners. I have been able to learn quite a bit in a short amount of time. He's teaching techniques makes you learn properly, from the sitting position to the playing techniques.
