Everything you ever wanted to know about the drums! Lesson plans are custom made for your individual goals!

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different b

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

I will instruct mallet students in fundamentals of music reading, 2 and 4 mallet technique, scales, music theory and improvisation.

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Aaron is so nice and very good at how to take the interests of kids. We appreciate to have him as our son's piano teacher.
Noah
Aaron has been great for my son (who's 8 and just starting). He's fun, super patient and keeps my son's attention well throughout the lesson. He has paced the lessons well so far. We're very happy and totally recommend Aaron.

Watching my students overcome challenges and develop their own musicality is what makes this the best job in the world. I truly believe that anyone can learn music just like anyone can learn a language. I most enjoy meeting new people and discovering what they're passionate about as well as how they learn best. I pride myself on my problem solving skills, positive attitude, patience, resourcefulness, and creativity.

I have a peaceful home studio in Laurel, MD, but can also travel to students for in home lessons or give lessons online via webcam. I prefer to teach in my studio, however, because I have a wide variety of resources available to enhance your learning experience. (For example, I can't haul my 88 key Yamaha piano to and from your house every week ;)

I think I differ from other teachers in two distinct ways.
First, I don't give up. I will pick your brain and try to communicate musical concepts to you in any way, shape or form until you leave the lesson feeling like ...

About Carly

Hello! My name is Carly Cascio. My relationship with music started when I was just 6 years old. My mother signed me up for suzuki violin lessons and I hated them so much I threw my violin on the ground. 18 years later and here I am now, teaching violin for a living! I really didn't foresee mysel

Carly makes lessons interesting and fun for my 10 year old son. My son is high energy, and yet he is able to concentrate, focus and enjoy!

We plan to continue lessons on line with Carly during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Aaron
Carly is an amazing teacher. I've been her student for about a year and a half now and I have learned so much from her. She's the kind of teacher who helps you understand the lesson through various ways to truly make you get it.

I have learned quite a number of songs that I have always wanted to learn to play but thought I couldn't because the difference in skill was too great. I am a huge fan of Lindsey Stirling and because of Carly, I have learned how to play Take Flight, First Light, Brave Enough, River Flows in You, Hallelujah, Beyond the Veil. Take Flight was the song that made me want to learn the violin and I am ecstatic to say that I can play it.

If you decide you want to learn the violin or another instrument that she plays, you can't go wrong with Carly!

I teach piano from the perspective of a modern musician and songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun in our lessons and pursuing the style of music that resonates with you. While I do like to use traditional method books to teach note reading and theory at a gradual pace, I also like to break away from the classical and spend some time on the music you know and love from the radio. Through teaching chords and accompaniment styles, I can help you to quickly learn the songs you love without needing to read sheet music, empowering you to start playing on your own while we work our way through note reading and more difficult pieces together. Ultimately, if you goal is strictly classical or strictly to sing and play, we can shift our focus to give more time to the area that you are passionate about.

About Loralee

Loralee began exploring music at a very young age, as part of a musical household. She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensemb

I'll be honest. I randomly chose an instructor for my 10 year old voice lessons. So pleased! She keeps in contact when there are issues with a lesson. Very flexible when it comes to platforms. Encourages and teaches my beginner in all the areas shes unfamiliar with. Super duper!

About Spencer

I quit guitar at 7 years old. I realized that many people quit for the same reason I did: when their fingers stroked the guitar, they didn't like the sounds they heard. Like many, I grew tired of the instrument, had no motivation to build the required finger strength, and decided playing guitar wa

Guy's a legend and he's not even 30 I don't think. You will love learning to play with Spencer!!!!!
Miguel Tomas
I am taking Spencer's advanced course at the moment, and I gotta say... This guy is just prodigious.
He's really personable, so in our first lessons, I learned that he taught himself to play by ear, like many of the greats.
What is really helping me play better, is something he calls the art of transformation; something he learned from listening to rare vinyl records nearly 100 years old.
Not only will you get better at guitar, but if you ask Spencer, you will learn many interesting facts about music and it's evolution.

As a piano teacher, I teach Premiere and Adult Levels out of Alfred’s Piano Library Books Series and Levels 1-4 from Bastein Piano Basics, ages 5 years old-Adult. I invented a music theory game called Match that teaches and reinforces music theory and vocabulary as well as notation in less than half the normal time. Students can learn bass clef and treble clef notes in 30 minutes by playing Match! The kids love the game and don’t even realize they are learning!

"James is an amazing teacher! My son has taken piano lessons from him for several years. James not only taught lessons and theory, he helped my son prepare “Prelude in C Major” by Bach for a school talent show. They also worked on Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie”. One year, James helped him prepare a song to sing at a talent show and even came to the show and accompanied him on piano. My son has written songs that James has helped him refine. When my son showed up with a ukulele, James was able to teach him how to play it as well. We love James!"
