I have been a drummer my whole life. I started at the age of six and have two degrees in percussion performance.

About Noel
Hello everyone and welcome!

My name is Noel B., and I am a musician living and working in New York City.

When teaching a new student I employ many different methods. To me, music is about playing with people. Its important to be able to play by yourself but there are things you just can't learn unless you play with people. I liken it to taking soccer lessons but never playing on a team. Also, its important to perform. All of my students are invited to perform at a venue with a grand piano that professional musicians in the city play. This really helps the students and I set goals, and achieve them. I also use some method books, theory and other things, but just making it about playing makes the lessons much much more fun and inspiring for the students.

I currently teach at two music schools apart from my Private studio. O
ne of which is in Long Island. At this school I teach electronic music production w/ Ableton as a digital audio workstation. I also teach DJ/Turntablism along side DJ 4our 5ive (he has worked with Notorious BIG, Jay z, and is the current tour DJ for Lil Wayne). We have also started working together on performing at the venue near the school.

I hope to inspire others to pursue a musical life. No matter how serious and long, or short and light.

One of my ultimate goals in teaching is to help my students develop the skills and knowledge to not only be able to play well, but to also be able to teach themselves (and hopefully others in the future). Thank you for your time! Have a great day!

Great lesson. Worked out a plan to accomplish my goals. Noel is amazing and multi-instrumentalist which helped to combine skills and a jam session into the lesson.

Simply put, Noel is a terrific teacher! I had the itch to pick up the guitar at 39 years old, and wanted to work with someone who had a laid back approach while still having the chops and the knowledge to offer some challenges. I was not disappointed!

Noel has an extremely diverse background in much that goes well beyond the guitar - He's an awesome drummer as well. This made the lessons even more interesting since he could offer perspective from the drummer's point of view, stressing how important rhythm is to becoming a solid guitarist.

On top of everything else, one of the things I like the most about taking lessons with Noel is that sitting down with him is like sitting in on a jam session - a pretty cool feeling for someone who's somewhat new to music, but has always wanted to learn.

Great Teacher

My teacher is amazing. A master professional in his musical field. He teaches like he's done it for decades, even though so young. I would dare to say he can teach with his eyes close. I love all his teaching techniques, from theory to scale, to practicing the Hanon Studies, to ear training and on. I like how he plays along with me while teaching me a new musical score. He completely dedicated to teaching his student and making sure his pupil is satisfied with his performance. He'll even help you with preparing you for an recital or musical event. He knows how. I highly recommend for teaching any pupil from age 3 to 92. He'll ask me what I want to do next, and then we look for scores that I can learn according to my level.. He's attention to your needs as a student and works around it. I always look forward to going to my next lesson and see how I improved and what's new score he's prepare for me to learn.

My emphasis is in two area:
1. a strong technical base on the instrument
2. an understanding of music forms
the student is encouraged to follow whatever style fit them the most, in keeping with these fundamental principles

About Marc
Percussionist and composer Marc W. was born in Switzerland, where he studied classical percussion at the Geneva Conservatory. He has lived in the United States since the 1980's, where he studied composition and mallet technique on the vibraphone at the Berklee School in Boston, then moved to New York City to further his jazz performance and percussion skills. Since that time, Marc has toured the U.S., Europe, Japan and Brazil, and can be heard on over 20 recordings, including 4 solo albums.
Marc's interest in electronics led him to push the boundaries of live performance with the "electronic vibraphone", where he is recognized as a pioneer on this instrument.
Beside a performer and a composer, Marc teaches workshops here and in Europe, and is very involved in making computers accessible to visually impaired musicians.
Marc has just p
ublished an iBook, titled "Drum Talk - An Introduction to Percussion Ensemble", available now on iTunes. This book demonstrates the techniques he developed during his many years teaching ensembles of all ages at the Filomen M. D'Agostino Greenberg Music School, it features 56 video clips and over 80 musical examples.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student needs a different approach depending on their temperament and goals. After assessing the student, I will tailor my teaching to achieve the most out of each lesson.
If a student is willing to commit to practicing outside of the lesson, after six months he or she will have the ability to play with others, and decide for him or herself if this is something he or she will pursue further.
The achievement level is in the hands of the student, depending on their level of commitment and abilities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Gretch Drum set, Bergerault vibraphone, Deagan Marimba, Mac System with ProTools, DP and Logic Audio systems
LP congas and Bongos, various hand Percussion

*** Specialties ***
Jazz. rock, funk, latin drumming
also teach percussion class mixing african, latin and brazilian style

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.

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, and Brazilian fusion, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

About Daniel
I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies and Physics. I was on the Division III tennis team there for two years as well. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or solving a challenging physics word problem. For music lessons, I strive to bring in a context of genre fluidity and history, so that a student knows where and what to explore on their own even when I am not in the room to show them. Overall, my teaching is all about inspiring students to do well and make their strengths work for them, rather than dryly coming up with the "right answer" or playing a tune the "right way" to get from point A to point B.

From drum set to chamber ensemble percussion, I will help the student improve basic technique for any style. I have extensive experience with drum set in particular, and can introduce the student to a wide variety of styles.

About Andrew
I have a Bachelors of Music Composition from Brooklyn College, and I'm currently finishing a Masters degree. I've been playing music professionally for 27 years, spanning a wide range of styles. My knowledge of different genres gives me a unique perspective for teaching.
I've been entertaining at the piano for 15 years, playing guitar for 25+, and began my musical career primarily as a drummer with a variety of bands. I'm classically trained as a percussionist, and I studied jazz piano at the University of Kentucky before finishing my degree at Brooklyn College.

I can make the piano, drumset, or guitar approachable for traditional and non-traditional students alike. I offer a strong foundation in technique, theory, and musicality, and can teach you popular music styles and improvisation as well. I look forward to working
with you!

I have 5 years of professional teaching experience, and have designed individual lesson plans for students of various ages and experience levels. I will help you build a solid foundation on the art of drumming as we navigate through topics such as technique, groove, creativity, and musicianship. Your enjoyment and improvement are central to my work! Let's get to it!

About Daniel
I am a drummer, composer and improviser from New York City. I graduated from Oberlin Conservatory with a Bachelors in Music, with a focus on jazz drumset, where I also studied various styles of world music and percussion.

I have been drumming for over 12 years, and understand the difficulties of figuring out where to start, what to practice, and how to improve. My versatility and formal training has helped me to provide students with a solid foundation on the technical aspects of drumming (reading music, hand technique, rudiments, coordination etc.) along with helping them find their own voice. You can expect me to design personalized lesson plans that are catered to your personality, taste and improvement.

To facilitate my students' learning, I provide various written materials, from method books to my own exercises. I typical
ly start lessons on a practice pad before moving to the drum kit. I also work closely with the student to develop concise and organized practice routines, so that they understand what to work on during their own time. In my experience, I have found that this foundation in routine and gradual improvement is central to great musicianship, and with time, will open up a world of possibilities for creativity and expression.

I am very familiar and comfortable working with beginners, but can teach students of all ages and experience levels. Whether you want your child to turn their banging into music, or are looking to take your chops to the next level, I'm your guy!

I have been teaching and performing professionally for 5 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on simple technique fixes and practical beats and grooves that will grow your ability, confidence, and passion within two weeks of lessons! I believe playing the drums is a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I teach all genres of music and specialize in teaching sticking technique, jazz improvisation, and rock, hip hop, and R&B grooves. I believe the role of the teacher is to INSPIRE not endoctrinate, so I focus on listening to the student's goals and providing tools for creativity and expression behind the drums!

About William
I am a professional drummer, producer and teacher. I studied jazz performance at Montgomery College and graduated from the University of Maryland.

Drum students can expect to improve week to week in their drumming technique. Every student has a unique approach to drumming; I teach students to use natural movements and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I am currently teaching lessons to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun.

I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. I work with drummers in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a v
ariety of musical goals.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Indie Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative, Pop, Punk, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.

There are a number of ways that we can approach your studies. My primary area of teaching is with jazz concepts and techniques (which is a great way to hone the skills necessary for most drum set styles) but I like bringing in other approaches as well. For example, I like using some of the ideas I picked up while studying in West Africa to deepen the groove when approaching rock, pop, and funk. I enjoy the diversity of using different ideas and repertoire to meet individual interests and goals.

About Daniel
I am currently earning my M.A in musicology at Hunter College and have been studying, teaching, and performing in NYC since 2002. My musical training really took off when I was awarded the Lundquist International Fellowship in 2001. This supported a year of study in Ghana, West Africa, and inspired me to continue my musical training at a professional level when I returned home to NY.

Upon returning, my interest in jazz grew immensely and I studied diligently with drummers Vinnie Sperrazza and Dan Weiss, and vibraphonist Tommy Mattioli. After years of intensive study and performing I began teaching in 2010. I have toured the U.S multiple times with different ensembles and also compose my own music for quintet.

I absolutely love teaching and will be applying to PhD programs next year to further this wonderful endeavor. I feel fort
unate to have been taught the lineage and progression of Western drumming from its African roots to its current manifestations in jazz and rock music. It is my honor to take students through the stages of practice that so many of the greats went through, while also demonstrating newer techniques and concepts as the styles evolve. It is my sincere pleasure to share this excellent art form.

I have been fortunate enough to discover a wonderful teacher and his name is Daniel Schubmehl. A humble, kind and nurturing teacher, I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking to improve their understanding of music theory, basic composition, drumming (kit or hand drum) and even piano. I found Daniel to be very sensitive to my needs as a student. While tailoring lessons designed to my interests, he also finds ways to introduce other exercises or perspectives that have proven helpful in my development as a musician. If I ever asked Daniel a question that he did not know the answer to, we would seek out the answer together, or he would take the time between our lessons to research my question. I very much appreciate his patience, attentiveness and perspectives. Daniel has helped me become a more sensitive musician and has strengthened my desire to pursue deeper understanding. His lessons are fun while also being incredibly effective and informative.

Very comfortable, patient, and thought-provoking teaching style. Daniel has a knack for breaking down complex ideas at the drum set as well as revealing the depth of seemingly simple ideas. Whether it is with rudiments, technique, jazz comping, or polyrhythms, Daniel has a natural interest in listening to you and catering his lessons to meet your goals."

I have been an independent musician for my whole life, and I know a wide variety of instruments. I have been in a band setting for many years as well. I know what the most things are to teach because at one point, I was an aspiring drummer just like whoever I teach. Anyone who studies with me will also be provided a good amount of music theory knowledge and how to rock!

About Mason

My students don't only learn how to drum, my students in the past have learned how to rock. I teach drum set, rudimentary percussion, and any marching band percussion instrument. I have been a percussionist my whole life, so I know the very steps needed to becoming a great drummer. My lessons are unorthodox, but in a way that's good for engagement and precision. My skill sets include leadership and encouragement, so I am a good teacher for beginning to more advanced students.

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.
