Give anyone a drum and they will instantly know what to do. Drums are meant to be hit, and for those who love to hit things and make loud noises. Bongo drum lessons are an easy way to introduce students to the world of drumming, rhythm and music.

The goal is listening for cues, hearing patterns and feeling rhythm and beat. Ideally, each student has their own drum. Begin with a simple repeat and answer pattern. You hit the drum two times, they repeat. Gradually add to the complexity of the patterns, so they must listen intently. Add some simple rhythms, such as 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1, with a strong emphasis on the 1.

First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)
Cathy Gertz
Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..

Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

Drum is the key to music, music is life. I believe with my lessons on drums, they will be more people to do good to life with music. I teach all kind of drums, even the local drums( talking drum and so on). I can also make you learn how to make new beats even without a drumset.

I have know Ty Key for over ten years, he is a human metronome. He can play any style of music and play it to perfection. I have seen him perform with different bands and different styles over the years and one thing is constant, his play stands out. I have seen him record at East West studios In LA tracking both live drums and the total live percussion set and the results were amazing. He plays in the pocket, both rhythm and solos. I could not feel more comfortable recommending someone who has mastered their craft more than Ty. He is easy to get along with and an outstanding teacher. He has worked as a drum technician and teacher at school ever since I’ve known him. He is a great person and you would lucky to learn from him.

Great teacher. Clear instruction. Vast knowledge of the instrument and it’s role in music.
Peter
I’ve known Ty for over ten years. He is one of the hardest working musicians I know, and works with integrity and all the highest positive qualities of a professional musician you could hope for. Any organization would benefit from Ty’s involvement.

I am an experienced educator with over 10 years of experience playing and teaching music. I have played in various musical situations from playing my own compositions to playing in rock bands and to playing with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Lessons are tailored to each students specific needs. Typically my lessons focus on drum-set, stylistic drumming, and practice techniques, but I also teach guitar, piano, music theory, and music production.

The drums are the backbone of most music, so you have to be able to feel the groove and stay tight and on top of the beat. I encourage students to pick their favorite songs, and we drum to those while learning proper technique, rudiments, song form, fills, rhythm, different grooves / beats, and anything they want to know about the drums. I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years and have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music. Drums is a beautiful art and form of expression and is just the tip of the iceberg we can tackle called Music.

"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!"
