Marc is extremely patient and passionate about his teaching. Not only does he emphasize the basic techniques for a beginner like me to master, but also make it fun for me. He also tries to motivate me with music theory and history which definitely help me understand the music better and inspire me to master the basics. Marc has an amazingly amount of knowledge in everything else as well, such as physics etc. that shows up in his teaching from time to time, which makes the learning experience much richer!
Brian L.
Marc is an incredibly friendly drum coach who also knows when to push his students to their limits. He has the rare ability to inspire his students so that they perform to the best of their abilities. If you don't sign up with Marc for your next drum lesson, I would suggest re-evaluating your decisions.
Rafal W.
Marc is a great teacher. Classes are always very friendly and productive. In my case, each class begins with a review of progress/practice, and ends with a meaningful and personalized homework. He is also very flexible, sometimes I had to move my classes around and he's always super responsive and understanding. I knew nothing about drums, and I am happy I decided to begin my journey to learn how to play them, with Marc as a mentor!

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over fifteen years and teaching for about 12. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels (lessons at my studio will be on electronic kit).

About Asaf

I would not be the person I am today if music wasn't the focal point in my life as it is. Not only do I absolutely love performing and studying music myself, but I adore teaching as well. Part of the musical experience is taking what you hear and what you learn from others and building on it to cre

Eventhough it was just our first lesson, Asaf is a patient teacher and gave lots instruction.
Sophia P.
Very informative, we went over terminology, how important it is to have the proper sticks and the correct way to hold them. Reading the music and playing the proper beat. We did a lot for 1 lesson, my daughter loved it.
Bindia M.
Flexible teaching methods!

Asaf is just brilliant. During the first session, my son was very distracted by the other things in the music room ie lights, instruments etc but Asaf managed to engage him by being extremely flexible in his teaching ie he is not wedded to any order and has a lesson plan in mind but goes with the flow and the interest of the child - this ensures that all that was intended on being covered is, and as a result of the flexibility, my son just loves these drum lesson and Asaf. Asaf makes him focus and has built a great teacher/student relationship in only 3 session. I would highly recommend Asaf.

Online Drum Teacher

I'm a Berklee alum who was fortunate to study with Alan Dawson, and still use a lot of what I learned from him in my teaching. I've toured around the world playing drums as well as recording on both coasts and CO, and I most recently taught at the Aurora School of Rock for 4 1/2 years. I tailor each lesson individually for each student to make the learning experience unique and educational. You won't learn if it isn't fun, and I make it fun.

About Carl

Hi, I've been playing drums since I was 13 and have gotten to play all over the US, up in Canada and in Japan. I've recorded many albums and still record to this day. Before I decided to do the teaching and recording thing from home, I taught for over 4 years at the Aurora CO School of Rock, so I

Carl gave my daughter drum lessons over the course of a few years and I can honestly say after every lesson she had she had something good to say. Carl is a very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor and watching my daughter's skill level increase because of his instruction was great. I highly recommend Carl as an instructor.
Brittany
Carl is a wonderful instructor! He was able to help our very shy daughter progress from basic drums to more advanced drums, culminating in performance ready songs. She always enjoyed his instruction and has positive feedback on her time with Carl.

"Emerson is an amazing instructor. Besides being a very knowledgeable and gifted musician, he’s patient, kind, and makes learning the drums fun. What I appreciate most about Emerson is that he’s interested in helping me reach my goals. I happen to be interested in learning Latin style drums and lucky for me, Latin is one (of many) of Emerson’s specialties. So many people have told me that Latin is hard to learn, but in four short lessons, I already know how to play a basic Bossa Nova beat. Emerson is a very organized and efficient instructor. We work with handouts, video (I record him as he instructs) and reading exercises from a book. A highlight for me in our sessions is when Emerson accompanies my drum playing with another instrument, the piano for example. I really get the feeling like we’re having a little jam session and it's fun because I can hear that I'm making music and that's an awesome feeling.

Choose Emerson as your music instructor and you will not be disappointed."
