Lynn L.

Brooklyn, NY

I am not a percussionist, nor a professional drum-set player. But I do play drum set and have a general knowledge around the kit.
I can get you going from the beginning stages up through the first couple of years. Groove is everything. :-)

*** Lesson Details ***
In addition to the fundamentals (Tone, Rhythm, Technique, Ear-Training, Sight-Reading), I also like to tie-in music theory, composition, and improvisation along the way. I believe in setting short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals that are specific to the student and their needs and wants. I also believe in the benefit of having the student bring in songs or materials that they are interested in, and designing lessons around their interests. I am patient, creative, and willing to move at any pace that is right for you.

Through my experience as an educator I understand that every student is different, and therefore, my job is to guide and facilitate learning, while making the process as enjoyable as possible! My approach is customized to bring out your strengths and interests, while also ensuring that you have a solid foundation on your instrument. In addition, I am professionally trained in both jazz & classical music, and I perform regularly with working bands of all types and genres.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, piano, guitars, clarinet, sax, flute, amps, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are expected to have an instrument, and eventually selected method-books which will be decided upon for each student based on their needs, goals, or level.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students, from beginner to professional levels of all ages.

Skills and teaching techniques vary specifically per individual, but may include saxophone technique (technical facility, tone, scales, overtones), improvisation (jazz as well as other styles), sight reading, music theory, ear training, transcription, composition, and repertoire development in all styles of music (jazz, classical, pop, funk, world, etc.)

Evan C.

Brooklyn, NY

About Evan

Born and raised in New Jersey, Evan Michael C. was surrounded by music from a young age. His father, Salvatore C., a talented guitarist dreamed that each of his children would learn a different instrument. After Evan’s eldest brother claimed the guitar, Evan reluctantly picked up the bass at the age of 13. At first, Evan was not happy: It was heavy, and it hurt his fingers. But Evan quickly learned to love the power the bass had over the bandstand and after a few lessons, it was clear that the instrument fit him like a glove.

He soon began to perform with high school rock bands, sneaking i
nto local bars and clubs for weekend gigs. A new-found appreciation for upright bass led Evan to start his own trio, sparking a love of R&B and Jazz music that thrives in him to this day. Late in his high school career, he began to set his eye on top music schools, hoping to pursue his craft professionally. He wanted to play with the best, learn from the best and become the best.

In 2007 he was invited to attend Berklee College of Music, an opportunity he would not take for granted. Boston was a whole new world for Evan and he quickly began joining up-and-coming artists for live and studio sessions. His initial efforts paid off in 2009 as he was selected to perform in the American Songbook Concert featuring Burt Bacharach and Grammy award-winning singer Paula Cole.

Evan graduated from Berklee in 2011 and has split the last several years between studio gigs and touring with renown international acts. Currently, Evan works as the live and studio bassist for Jazz/Pop vocalist Nikki Yanofsky, the touring bassist for Country singer Nicole Frechette, and as the bassist for Boston-based R&B group Biscuits & Gravy.

In the last year alone, Evan has worked with executive producers Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton and recorded a live session documentary at Capitol Records featuring Herbie Hancock. Evan will spend the Summer of 2013 on an international tour with Nikki Yanofsky before returning to Boston, Massachusetts where he currently resides.

Christopher C.

Brooklyn, NY

My teaching method always revolves around keeping things loose and fun. However while we are working toward your goals (learning a specific drum pattern or playing along to your favorite band) I will be making sure that we are addressing important technique issues including dynamics, grip, posture and others.

Our lessons together can be customized any way you wish so no matter what your drumming goals are we can get there together. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Christopher

My name is Chris and I'm 32 years old. As the drummer for the band Phantogram I have played over 150 shows in the last year and a half and appeared on national television several times including Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman. I have been studying and playing drums for 20 years and have lots of experience I'd love to share with you. I have a very easy going personality and I enjoy tailoring lessons to a student's specific needs whatever they may be. I aim to make lessons fun and enjoyable and I look forward to hearing from you!

Rob H.

Brooklyn, NY

Drum lessons are taught one-on-one and from a beginner level to an advanced level. Ages of students start at 6-years-old and up. I have many adult students as well. It's never too late to start a new instrument.

About Rob

I have over 18 years of professional teaching experience on drum set, snare drum and percussion (timpani, two- & four-mallets, accessory percussion and hand drums), guitar, piano, electric bass and ukulele. I have been playing music since the age of two.

Some of my most noteworthy performances have included Late Show with David Letterman (Justin Townes Earle and Allison Moorer), Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Allison Moorer), Levon Helm'™s Midnight Ramble (Allison Moorer), The Conan O'™Brien Show (Julia Nunes) and Budokan in Tokyo, Japan (Jim Campilongo Trio).

My Bachelor of Music is from
Capital University where I studied with three great teachers:
Robert Breithaupt - Classical percussion and jazz drum set
Jim Ed Cobbs - Drum set, tabla and frame drums
Eric Paton - Taiko, samba, Afro-Cuban drums

*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student individually, catering to specific goals and needs that we will decide upon and plan together. Some students want to seriously study a craft. Others want a hobby that will be fun and interesting. I have had success teaching to both, and will impart basic fundamentals and musicianship to all types of students.

I see my primary job as keeping the student inspired, intellectually fed and sprinting in the right direction. The student's job is to do the work. Daily practice is essential to move forward in any craft.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My Brooklyn studio is a dedicated music space with two drum sets, PA, amplifiers and recording capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide books, a drum pad, sticks or mallets, an iPod with two sets of headphones, and a metronome. Additionally, I can bring small hand drums, special instruments and percussion that might be needed for specialty lessons. I expect students to have some sort of pad or drum to practice on at home; a full drum set is not necessary.

*** Specialties ***
Drum set (rock, jazz, R&B, folk, pop, electro, Afro-Cuban)
Snare drum
Timpani
Two- and four-mallets (marimba, vibraphone, xylophone)
Accessory percussion
Frame drums
Traditional samba
Afro-Cuban hand drums
Japanese taiko

Rob was an awesome teacher and even better guy. The lesson environment was comfortable, but always focused and professional. He's clearly a hugely talented musician and has a ton to offer in the way of teaching; perhaps more importantly though, his love of music inspires the student to practice and learn. Very highly recommended.
