Hi! I'm Scott. I usually perform using a one-man band setup I created. I modified guitar and made foot pedals to control a drum set, while singing. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer.

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.

Drums:
One of my favorite instruments to teach , and definitely a fun instrument to learn, is the full Drum Set. You will love my method as it is very easy to follow. Starting with very basics of learning rhythms, within the first two lessons you will be able to play beats with a band! Study with me for over twenty years if you like and you will learn all styles of beats, polyrhythms and more.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Are you ready to improve your skills?

Drumstick Sizes and Types - And Why It Matters

Drummers, you've got it easy.  Grab some sticks and something to hit, and your makeshift instrument is just as good as the real thing... right?  Sure, maybe if it's just an impromptu jam session with friends.  But for proper technique and to really improve on the drums, you'll need the right equipment - which includes your drumsticks. Choosing the right drumsticks can be as selective as buying a violin bow for violinists, and you may need to test out several different types before settling …
