Cory has been working with my 12 year old. He taught her to sight read and is helping her widen her vocal range. She has made so much progress since she started working with him. We are very pleased. I highly recommend him!

Cory is masterful at what he does. We love how he has catered his lessons to our son's level of experience. He has also inspired such confidence in our son's performances. Cory is a music talent we feel so fortunate to have found. Our 10-year old son always so excited for his lessons and his "homework." They definitely have a special musical connection that we hope continues to grow.

My first lesson was a lot of fun! Peter is great at helping you feel at ease and comfortable. I was extremely nervous and he was great with making me feel like I was right at home with a friend! I also appreciate that he is not rigid in his teaching techniques or format. He caters your lesson to what your learning desires are and is very good at recognizing your skill level (or lack of 😁). I also appreciate how encouraging he is. I’m super excited to continue on my Saxophone journey!
Owen
My child really enjoyed his first lesson with peter. Peter is a very talented musician and he made the lesson fun! My child seemed to learn a lot from just one lesson with peter and he enjoys practicing what he learned at home.
John G.
Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

Beat Box: (Cajón)
A box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces with the hands, fingers, or sometimes various implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks.
Cajones are primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, as well as contemporary styles of flamenco and jazz among other genres. The term cajón is also applied to other unrelated box drums used in Latin American music such as the cajón de rumba used in Cuban rumba and the cajón de tapeo used in Mexican folk music.
Learning will be fun as the Cajon is pretty easy to learn. Hand techniques and rhythms will be the primary focus as well as playing along with songs and even learning to solo!

Carter
This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Private Beatboxing Lessons Near You

A form of vocal percussion called beatboxing has become a primary element of contemporary music, especially hip hop. To beatbox, a person uses their mouth, lips, tongue, and voice to imitate the sounds of a drum machine. Beatboxers also imitate the sounds of turntables or other musical instruments. 

Although beatboxing is a relatively new practice, it has deep roots in music and culture. Similar techniques have been used in percussive speech and languages around the world. Beatboxing-like vocal percussion can be found in a variety of musical styles. These include scat singing of American jazz and blues, Celtic lilting and diddling, classical music of southern India, and Chinese kouji, which literally translates to mouth acrobatics. 

Due to their ability to generate and arr

...

ange sounds on the spot, beatboxers become talented, confident performers. They keep rhythm and captivate audiences with this unique skill set. As you practice with an expert in beatboxing classes, you'll expand your collection of sounds and improve your rhythm. 

Why Learn to Beatbox?

Beatboxing utilizes a complex group and combination of vocal movements, which use the lips, tongue, mouth, throat, palates, and voice to generate a variety of sounds and beats. The unique practice utilizes movements that aren't practiced in everyday speech (at least not in English-speaking cultures). As a result, beatboxing is incredibly healthy and strengthening for a person's vocal cords, lungs, the pharyngeal muscles, and the musculature of breathing. 

The practice of beatboxing also helps students improve their overall musicianship, as the art requires one to be a careful listener who pays close attention to sound, quality of tone, and rhythmic timing. Beatboxing improves an individual's overall rhythm and timing when playing any instrument, but especially percussive instruments, such as drums or piano. 

Beatboxing, in its natural form, is highly creative and expressive. Similar to the way the greats of jazz, like Ella Fitzgerald and Cab Calloway, would ad-lib a scat in a jazz tune, a beatboxer must have the ability to improvise new sounds and rhythms on the fly, whether beatboxing with a group or in a beatboxing competition on stage. Practicing in-the-moment creativity improves a musician's inventiveness and confidence, as he or she becomes a more and more successful beatboxer. 

The Best Way to Learn Beatboxing and Topics You'll Cover in Beatboxing Classes

Although it's easy to find free beatboxing lessons online, the best way to learn is by studying with a private beatboxing tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive immediate feedback, overcome challenges quickly, and pick up new beatboxing techniques fast. Plus, every lesson with a private tutor is customized to the student's individuals interests and learning level. For example, beatboxing classes for kids are different from beatboxing lessons for adults. Plus, in private lessons, your tutor will enhance your creativity, helping you develop an individual style and sound. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Beatboxing Lessons

If you're new to beatboxing or just a have a little experience, then beginner lessons are right for you. In beginner lessons, you'll be introduced to beatboxing and learn some of the basic techniques to get you started. In beginner beatboxing classes, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Phonetics of beatboxing
  • Fricatives and plosives
  • Forced and unforced plosives
  • Basic sounds: kick, snare, and hi-hat
  • Breath control

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Beatboxing Classes

In intermediate lessons, you'll add new sounds and skills to your beatboxing arsenal. Your teacher will help you work through challenges to improve your overall techniques. Your beatboxing tutor might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Breathing exercises
  • Inward vs. outward aspirated sounds
  • Injective and ejective techniques
  • Lip, tongue, and voice warm-ups
  • Drum and bass beat patterns

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Beatboxing Lessons

Students who already know their way around a beat should sign up for advanced beatboxing lessons. In advanced lessons, you'll take your skills to the top, get comfortable on stage, and work on developing your own personal style by inventing techniques and sounds that are unique to you. Topics covered in advanced lessons depend on the student's individual interests, but your instructor might cover the following:

  • Combination sounds
  • Tone and quality control
  • Style development
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance preparation
