I have been taking lessons from Barbara for 3 to 4 months now.I live in a condo so when I practice every 2 weeks I take my PA.over to my x girl friends house to practice .She is the person who got me started 12 years ago and she knows my voice well.She rarely compliments me on anything which is common for an x girlfriend, however the last 2 times I practiced at her house ,she cracks a big smile and says with suprise"You have gotten better!"Thanks Barbara!

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

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.

"Andrew is an awesome drum teacher! I started studying with him in a group class setting, where he easily worked with students of all ages and levels of musical experience to teach the fundamentals of drumming. I moved into private lessons with him, which he always balanced nicely focusing on a variety of things: technique, exercises, reading, listening and songs. He is very skilled and knowledgeable, dependable and a wonderfully nice guy. I learned so much from him in the years that I studied with him and was sad to see him leave Los Angeles. I highly recommend him as a drum teacher for students of all ages!"

"To the point...

Matthew is very good at knowing where you should start. Instead of pulling out basic rudiments from the start, Matthew had me play my set first. It was then he got a good understanding where I needed to start.

Matthew is very laid back, allows you to progress at your own speed, and always makes sure you got your lesson(s) before he leaves...

I would recommend Matthew to any drummer wanting professional instruction."
