Private Percussion Teacher

In lessons we'll train technique and theory right alongside the ear with the objective of being able to play from your authentic self.
In addition I studied with the Jazz legend and esteemed educator Stefon Harris (currently leading the Manhatttan School of Music). We will use his innovative theory and ear training techniques to learn the most basic mechanics of music.

About Grady

My personal philosophy of music is to explore and learn as much from my students as I can teach them. For me teaching is like going on an adventure to find something together. I've been able to play all over the world and tour with many different musicians and the thing that made the core of every

Smart, enthusiastic, patient. I'm an older adult who has some basic piano ability (very basic), and within moments Grady evaluated and then clicked in with my needs. I suspect he would be perfect for children also.
Terry J.
Grady is the most energetic, caring, and fun piano instructor I ever encountered. He is very patient and goes over the basics when needed. As a adult learner, Grady not only meets you where you're at but takes his time to go over any issues you may have. I highly recommend Grady !!!
Terry J.
Grady is very patient. He has a very good sense of humor. Takes his time in explaining why notes are the way they are,especially when you get stuck. Highly recommend Grady to any piano beginner, intermediate and advanced

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.

Jean Pierre has been an amazing teacher for my son, who is learning the drums. We have weekly lessons scheduled and Jean Pierre is always on time and ready to begin the lesson. He has vast knowledge of drums and other percussion instruments and is able to teach with patience and approachability when Xander has questions. We were first worried about having an online drum teacher (Jean Pierre lives in Malta). But it has been flawless as we have used the take lessons application to connect and set up a stand by the drum set so Jean Pierre can see Xander's drumming. We are very happy with Jean Pierre as Xander's teacher and would recommend him to other students.

Great teacher! Highly recommend!
Thomas
Jean Pierre helped my daughter fulfill her dream of playing the drums. His lessons are fun and my daughter is always enthusiastically practicing for her next lesson.
Highly recommended.

"I have been taking music lessons of various types in and outside of school since elementary school and have never had a teacher who introduces concepts quite like Mr.Fuhrman. Things that I have struggled with ever since they were introduced; especially regarding rhythm/counting have become incredibly simple- as they should be! My progress regarding percussion (which I've been working with for over 4 years) has increased exponentially since working with him. Not only will he highly recommend essential practice, but he's willing to give you various strategies to manage time and to be able to fit the practice in. I've had music teachers (all of whom were very competent musicians) telling me to practice since the second grade, but no one's ever set aside some lesson time to discuss how to fit it in. I am a beginning music teacher myself and have already implemented some of the concepts he has taught with my own students. He's not only an incredibly skillful musician, but he is an amazing teacher as well. You won't regret doing lessons with him."
