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.

My kids have been taking guitar and drum lessons with Bruno for 2 years, and they are having a great time! It's awesome that he teaches two instruments, because I can have both kids take their lessons in the same place. They have tons of fun learning new songs, and the studio is nice too. Highly recommend him for others!
Lilia B.
I enrolled in online lessons with Bruno after seeing his posts on social media. I am glad that I can get such effective lessons with him online, because he is an excellent musician and instructor. He does a great job of demonstrating all the techniques that I need to know and teaching me a lot of different songs. Our lessons have been very productive thus far and I look forward to more!
Lindsey
Bruno is a great guitar teacher. My son stared lessons with him last year as a complete beginner, and now he can play a lot of his favorite songs on guitar. Bruno is knowledgeable, patient, and fun all at the same time! My son learns something new at every lesson and is excited to go home and practice! He is having tons of fun learning with Bruno and I recommend him to anyone.

Online Drum Teacher

I gig, teach, and tour, full time as a drummer living in NYC. I've played drums for over 13 years and studied with numerous teachers across the country.

I perform rock, gospel, funk, jazz, country, and pop music for audiences all over and can help students identify specific, tailored, course work to help them in whatever genre.

My goal is to help students of all ages and abilities sift through the ocean of content to find the *right* challenges for them so they can play what they want to play.

This if my life, this is what I love. I look forward to working with you!

I thought I wasn’t going to be able learn how to play drums and then I met Max! Very patient person and easily helped me unlock the door into drumming. Made everything clear to me and broke it down to where I was able to understand. Highly recommend, Thank you Max!
Emmie
Max is an amazing teacher. He is an outstanding, patient,
and compassionate teacher. His lessons were so well tailored to my needs. Each class addressed specific needs and goals of mine. Max is a great drummer and wonderful teacher, highly recommend.
Benji
I was a bit nervous about taking lessons as I had not played drums in front of anyone before. My first lesson was surprisingly a very comfortable expereience and something that I would definitely recommend if you are on the fence. I have been playing for about a year and felt like I wasn't progressing with YouTube tutorials anymore. Max has really been helping to take me to a new skill level!

"We Love Love Love Ray. My son is 8 years old. He is a beginner at drums and had his first lesson today at Rays (wonderful!) little studio with two drum sets in it. Ray started with a simple rhythm that my son had to copy and they practiced it together a couple of times. Then Ray showed him what that rhythm looked like, written down on paper and how you can read the notes so you can play it (anything) again. Then they both put headphones on and played the same rhythm along with a song of (in this case) Michael Jackson, picking up the tempo. This made it all the more fun, because my son felt like he was already actually making some real music!
My son loved his first class with Ray and I am very happy too. Ray is structured, has loads and loads of enthusiasm and is very skilled. On top of that he knows how to teach! We can’t wait untill his next class."

I've found Murray to be a ray of sunshine and so patient with his instructions.
I'm already playing songs only five lessons in. Online lessons are a breeze as he has multiple camera angles to help you see what's going on.
Can't say enough good about these lessons and Murray's instruction.
Give it a shot. You won't regret it."
