About Yuichi
Yuichi H. was born in Tokyo, Japan. His musical career started at age 10 when he performed marimba in a music recital. He started playing drum set at age 14 and joined a wind ensemble, a few rock bands, and a jazz big band. With some of these groups, he performed at several live music venues in Tokyo. In 1991, he composed the music and performed drums and percussion in a production of Othello, at The Globe Tokyo Panasonic Theater.
In the fall of 1991, with a full scholarship, he attended Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA. He studied jazz drums mainly with Joe Hunt and Jon Hazilla, and orchestral percussion with Dean Anderson. Also, he took many classes in jazz composition and arranging with Gregg Hopkins and Jeff Friedman. He was the recipient of "The Cuccinello Percussion Award" and the "Berklee Percussion Department Achievemen
t Award." Outside of the school curriculum, he joined several bands and performed at several venues such as the Willow Jazz Club, Middle East Cafe, and Copley Square Hotel. With one of these bands, he appeared at a jazz festival called "Jazz Improv." in Kingston, NY in 1993.

In the spring of 1995 he earned a Professional Diploma in Performance and Jazz Composition from Berklee College.
His ambition to learn and play music made him move to New York City. He continued his studies at The City College of New York, CUNY, NY, and earned a Masters degree in jazz performance in the spring of 2000. There, he studied jazz and contemporary drums with Charli Persip, Kim Plainfield, and Mark Walker. Also, he studied jazz ensemble, and arranging with Grammy award winning bassist Ron Carter.
Currently, as a full-time freelance drummer, he appears at various live music venues in New York City, and around the tri-state area as well. His own jazz band has performed at Arthur's Tavern in Greenwich Village every Tuesday since September 2001, and he has also appeared at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York in 2003, 2004 and 2005. He has also been touring in Tokyo and Kyushu, Japan.

As a sideman, he has performed at the Birdland Jazz Club in New York with the Morris Brothers Band in 2000, and also at the April Jazz Festival in Finland with the Jay Sweeney R&B Experience in 1999. With his wide-ranged interest in music, he plays not only jazz, but also rock, R&B, funk, blues, country, Brazilian and afro-Cuban.
John Scofield, Larry Carlton, John Abercrombie, Robben Ford, John Petrucci (Dream Theatre), Percy Heath (MJQ), Ron Carter, Donald Byrd, and Barry Harris are among some of the more notable musicians that Yuichi has performed with.

Yuichi is an excellent and experienced educator. He taught drums at the National Guitar Workshop since 1997 and also at the Roosevelt Island School in 2004. His students range from 9 years old to experienced adults. He has clear objectives and a passion for all lessons, units, projects, and is able to share these objectives with his students very clearly. Also, with his skill to plan instruction programs for music that meets individual needs, interests, and abilities of students, he worked for the Jazz Workshop in Yamaguchi, Japan in 2002, 2003, and 2006. There he played a very important role as a program coordinator as well as a translator. At this workshop, he worked with jazz legends, Barry Harris, Richard Davis, and Lewis Nash.

*** Lesson Details ***
After so many years since I grabbed a pair of drum sticks for the first time, I still get the same joy and excitement when I play music with drums nowadays. The better I have an idea about music, the more fun I get. It seems that my drumming gets better as long as I have specific goals every time I practice playing drums, and that keeps me wanting to play more.

By teaching how to play drums, I like to share this fun with you. In order to do that, I will make an ideal practice plan specifically designed for you.
If you know what songs you like to play, then I will show you what to practice on drums and how you are doing. It might be helpful if you understand the song in terms of what it consists in term of verses and choruses, chord changes, instrumentation, etc. Whenever you like, I can talk about these things as well. You could take it as a kind of music theory, but I keep in my mind that your primary interest is getting better on drums.

If you do not have particular songs in your mind right now but you want to play drums, No problem. I will be happy to introduce you many different kinds of songs/tunes until you find one to play.
Or if you just want to play some hot drum solos, I sure got some great stuff to work on to it.
Either playing a song or playing just solo drums, I will show you many different techniques to work on, and I will keep watching how you are doing on drumming.
I look forward to meeting you and starting work on building your fun with music!
Thank you for visiting my profile site!

Great Teacher

Yuichi has been a really great teacher for our 7 years old son. He is very patient and really great with kids. He's made a real effort to get our son interested in drumming and music more generally, introducing to different sounds, rhythms and types of music. My son really enjoys his lesson and is making good progress!

Our son is 7 years old and started drum lessons with Yuichi several months ago. My son absolutely loves his classes with Yuichi and would go more than once a week if he could. We are very happy with Yuichi. He makes the lesson fun and interesting for our son, and at the same time teaching him what he needs to know so he continues to make progress. He is a great match for our son.

Ever since I've been taking lessons from John, my playing has gotten drastically better. He's incredibly knowledgeable, has access to tons of resources, and is super outgoing and engaging. Lessons with him truly made drumming into my passion, and he played a large part in helping me earn a music scholarship for college. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

I love taking lessons with John. I'm definitely a weird case for any instructor - I've been playing for 15 years, but I never worked with any teachers on building out my fundamentals correctly. John pinpointed my ability and exactly where I needed to improve. He didn't need a ramp up period - in only one lesson we hit the ground running.

After just a few months of lessons, I've improved enormously and it feels like there's more potential on the horizon. The exercises he gives me are spot on and for the first time I'm really enjoying practicing. Taking lessons with John is the real deal - he's truly transmitting what it means to play and I can see him easily transitioning between players of any ability with patience. I admire him as a musician, and he's also just an awesome guy. Would recommend to anyone.

As a drummer/percussionist of 18 years, I have experience in styles including rock, pop, jazz, classical, and more. Together we will develop a solid sense of groove & rhythm by studying rudiments, improvisation, music theory, and more. We will also spend time working on music that you personally love! At my studio, I have a drum kit and vibraphone, among other instruments. Whether you are starting from the very beginning or have been playing for a while, I’d love to work with you!

About Robby
Hi! My name is Robby and I am a drummer/percussionist based in Brooklyn. Since the age of fourteen, I have been teaching students in both recreational and career-focused contexts. Playing music is the most rewarding part of my life, and sharing that fulfillment with others is extremely important to me. I prioritize humor, empathy, and patience as crucial elements of music making.

As a teacher, I value the solidification of fundamentals as well as a strong focus on developing personal style and taste. Each person's relationship with music is unique, so I strive to help each student in developing techniques and routines that best suite their individual goals. My musical knowledge includes rock, pop, hip-hop, classical, jazz, electronic, and almost any other genre.

I am an active performer in the city and have a wealth of experience
to draw from. I am co-founder of an avant-dream band called Boio (with Finnegan Shanahan) and drummer of The Roofer’s Union. I also frequently play with projects like Alpenglow, Contemporaneous, Abbi Press, Goldfeather, and Echo Chamber, among other freelance gigs in the NY area. As a contemporary percussionist, I have worked with renowned artists like John Corigliano, Pascal Le Boeuf, Martin Creed, So Percussion, Jerek Bischoff, and more. Some of my performance highlights include appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, PASIC, The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Park Avenue Armory, National Sawdust, Elsewhere (Hall), and EMPAC.

I can teach out of my studio in Downtown Brooklyn, online, or I am happy to meet you for lessons elsewhere if you have your own location with the instruments we need. I can teach drumset, classical & orchestral percussion, keyboard mallet instruments, early piano, and techniques in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Garageband music softwares.

Whether you have no musical experience or have been practicing for a while, I am happy to work with you and figure out how to best reach your full musical potential. I look forward to meeting you!

Robby was an amazing teacher!!! I can't recommend him enough. His lessons on Logic Pro were incredibly straightforward and useful, and have been crucial for me as I continue to use the program. He is patient, kind, and has an enthusiasm for music that is unmatched. If you want to learn about Logic Pro, or music in general, you should look no further than Robby Bowen!!

With private teaching experience and a degree in Jazz Composition & Professional Music from Berklee College of Music, Granville adopts the teaching methods of the accomplished performers and educators who instructed him, such as the late Joe Morello(Dave Brubeck), Terri Lyne Carrington (Grammy Award winning artist), Dave DiCenso(Hiromi, Josh Groban) among others.

Granville's curriculum centers on the building blocks; great technique to empower flexibility in his students. He uses methods perfected by Alan Dawson (The Rudimental Ritual), Gary Chaffee (Odd Time Stickings), Sanford A. Moeller (The Moeller Technique), and other great teachers while employing methods he has found successful through his years of teaching.When necessary, music theory elements are employed to teach song form, dynamics and overall musicianship.

About Granville
I operate in the music arena as a touring musician; a Music Director for musicals, jazz ensembles and choirs; a composer & songwriter; a band teacher at my local elementary school, a private instructor and a producer with a degree in Jazz Composition and Professional Music from Berklee College of Music. I am currently performing and writing with Divinity Roxx (Beyonce, Victor Wooten, etc.), Elle Winston, Kate Vargas and others. Most of my writing and creating is done here in my private studio. I am proud to have produced tracks featured by the likes of Elton John on his Beats 1 Radio (Apple Music) station. That is to say, I'm really proud of the artists and having such an inspired space.

I have, and continue to be honored to perform all over the world with some of the most prolific players this planet has seen and those it will experi
ence in the coming years. I find playing music can be a great source of inspiration and release. But most importantly, everyone has a voice to be heard through music.

I have taught privately since I was in high school on my own. Over the years, I have also been affiliated with some amazing entities. Additionally, my work in arts administrative (Brooklyn Academy of Music -BAM, UVA Music) translates into my ability to show you skills that will garnish success when you aren't playing music.

My students can expect growth in knowledge of rhythm, understanding of music and song forms. Your timing will improve! Your feel for styles (blues, rock, jazz, hip hop, EDM, etc.) will improve! Your technique will be through the roof!! I empower my students to do whatever they can dream to do with music, whether it is for personal enrichment or personal ambition.

I will demystify anything you feel is outside of your reach and grow you into the musician you want to be. My private studio is a fully equipped playground for the musically-minded with all the tools and materials you need to grow as a musician, so all you need to bring is your imagination. I look forward to the journey.

Besides being one of Long Islands best percussionist, he happens to be the most warmest, patient, personable, and fun loving soul I have encountered.

As an instructor, David exudes the perfect balance of amiability and intimidation. He will inspire you to work your absolute hardest without scaring you away. Personality-wise, he is that happy medium somewhere between Mr. Rogers and J.K. Simmons in Whiplash. I studied with David during my college years and 7+ years later I still utilize his concepts in everyday practice. There are many specific stories, ideas and exercises of his that have always stuck with me and come up quite often when I am working on something new or teaching a lesson or class of my own. Whether we were learning orchestral excerpts, 4-way independence, Bach fugues or just playing quarter notes with the metronome, I always left our lessons feeling highly motivated and anxious to practice. It's also great to have a teacher that can blow your mind with his own playing. It might be difficult for some teachers to get students into something like the tambourine or triangle but when he picked one up and casually played some insane rhythms and advanced techniques I was immediately inspired to learn to do the same. Not to mention his drum work on Matt Herskowitz's "Forget Me Not" - some of the things he does on that record still keep me up at night. I'm very grateful for my time as a student of David's and glad I can still learn from him as a friend and colleague!

David is a world-class musician with the rare ability to communicate the most complex musical ideas clearly and simply to students of all ages. Within the first hour of the first lesson, David helped our son, then age 12, identify technical issues that were causing him problems and stripped away bad habits that were holding him back. With David's professional guidance in both drums and percussion, our son's progress has been remarkable. In our son's own words: “David is creative with a good sense of humor, which always makes lessons fun.” We cannot recommend him more highly.

She was able to perform at Merkin Music hall with drum solo. David teaches not only the drum techniques, but also music appreciation, learning strategies.

Want to start learning how to play drums? As your teacher, I will focus on all the aspects which make a well-rounded drummer. Each lesson will be customized to both the goals, and the needs of the student. We will cover everything from various styles (i.e. rock, funk, jazz, latin, etc...), to drum technique, to reading, to transcribing, and the list goes on. If you are a beginner looking to build a solid and well-rounded foundation on the drums, then my lessons are for you!

About Dominic
I am currently a student at the New School of Jazz working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz drums.

My lessons are designed for beginners. The main goal of my lessons are to create a solid and well-rounded foundation within the student. As a result, the student will learn various styles, learn how to read and transcribe, learn technique, and, in general, learn the skills needed to play with others, whether that be in a jam session with friends, the jazz band at school, or in your own band.

While there will be a standard curriculum within the lessons, each lesson will be customized to meet the needs and goals of the student.

My personal passion is jazz, however, the fundamentals that you will learn are essential for a drummer in any style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your musical journey!
