First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)

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!

Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

Interested in creating a natural feel and sound on whatever instrument you play? Improving your technique? 4 mallet marimba? Drumset?

For the better part of my adult life I have been performing and teaching classical contemporary music. Although I am well versed in the traditional repertoire of classical percussion (orchestral and contemporary chamber music/solo), my heart is first and foremost a performer. If you are looking to become creative musician who enjoys a challenge and likes to find creative solutions to skill-building, let me know! I'm sure I can help and would love to work with you!

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

"My 9-year-old son, Luke, who is on the spectrum (PDD-NOS) studied with David for the better part of a year and the experience was terrific. In addition to being extremely communicative and reliable, David was kind and patient. David kept Luke focused and entertained while also inviting him to think about rhythm in ways that made sense to Luke's brain. We happily traveled from Inwood to "Downtown Brooklyn" for lessons because the level of instruction was that good and, I think, Luke's progress demonstrates that. Luke was bitten by the hockey bug, so we are taking a break from percussion right now, but I wouldn't hesitate to return to David's studio should time allow in the future."

"I am a high school band director and Cameron was our percussion instructor last school year. He did a wonderful job with the students! He covered all areas of percussion from marching band, to concert band, and even percussion ensemble. He pushed the students and expanded their skills on all percussion instruments, all while keeping things engaging for the students. He programmed for and rehearsed our three percussion ensembles last year. Cameron was an integral part of our band program and our students loved working with him!"

"Steve D. is an excellent teacher! My daughter is in the band at her middle school, and she started taking lessons a few weeks before school started. She was worried about having to play a part on the bells that she did not know. Steve showed her exactly how to play it, and she was able to play the whole piece before leaving her lesson. She came worried, and she left confident! Steve is very patient, and is able to answer any question you ask him regarding percussion. He is very kind as well, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs lessons."

"Our son Nick has really enjoyed working with Eric, since he started taking drum and bell kit lessons, since last December 2014. Eric is professional, patient, easy for our son to learn from, approachable, encouraging, gives compliments and helps build confidence. Eric also assists with Nick's music performances and preparation for music tests, and always is dependable. Eric was able to teach our son music notes easily, after taking lessons from a popular music school that did not do justice. We are very impressed by Eric and we as a family would recommend him highly to any student learning percussion."
