I feel very lucky to have my son take flute lessons from Kendall! She is a wonderful teacher. Her lessons are dynamic, engaging and fun. Thirty minutes fly by like three minutes. Next time will schedule a longer session.

Jackie taught my son saxophone lessons and my daughter flute lessons for a year while we lived in Belmont. She did a fabulous job and my daughter made it into advanced band when we moved to Texas. My son also made a lot of progress as an absolute beginner. I highly recommend Jackie for music lessons for children and teens.

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Shiv is a great teacher, he is practical, uses songs to get you started and keep you interested in learning drums. He is young and has been learning music from very young age. It is relief for me when i go to drums classes as it clears my mind away from daily grind.
Ekta
My son took drum lessons from Shiv for a short time. Shiv really connected with my son and sparked an interest by starting with my son’s favorite songs. We could not continue due to conflict of timings.
Anyil
Shiv has been teaching our son since he was 6yrs old and although he’s young, he’s great with connecting with the students and explaining things to help you understand. My son really enjoys his lessons & we highly recommend Shiv. He has a passion for music & tracing and he’s really good at it.

I am a well-rounded drum teacher, meaning I have learned and studied genres ranging from blues, jazz, rock and indie rock. I will give you tons of music to listen to and interpret and teach you how to learn tunes by ear. You will understand the forms of jazz tunes such as aaba Aba and abc. You will learn how to play the tunes you listen to and take the concepts of drum beats and drum rudiments used within them o make them your own and use them in your original playing. I also teach how to read standard drum notation, and can teach you how time signatures work and the values of notes if you don’t already know.

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

Eli was great. He was very patient with my son during his very first music lesson. Eli made the lesson fun and enjoyable. My son enjoyed the lesson very much and is looking forward to his next one.

"Great teach!

Eric is a great teacher. I had taken lessons from someone else several years ago. Eric was immediately able to adjust to my skill level, and pushed me further in just a few weeks than I had ever hoped. He's very patient, yet is always getting me to get better.

He's great, communication-wise. He's even sent me vids, showing me how to tackle problems.

His knowledge is incredible. But the important thing is that he shares what he knows - technique, rock, blues, classics, theory -- it's all there!

Bottom line - if you want to improve, Eric's your only choice."

He is great to work with, very accommodating to the students interest and very professional! He has helped me with technique and music theory as well, which has been really helpful.

"I began working with Barbara in 2013 for singing lessons and I have never looked back! I had never taken lessons before, so I had no idea what to expect. Barbara was and is wonderfully open, friendly and patient. She teaches you how to use your voice in a way that will not strain or hurt your voice, but train this "muscle" to work for you and all your vocal desires. I have been able to reach notes and achieve goals for myself vocally that I never expected. Bottom line: I would highly recommend Barbara for anyone wanting to grow their voice - for choir, for profession, or just for fun. Look no further!"
