I can get you going from the beginning stages up through the first couple of years. Groove is everything. :-)

*** Lesson Details ***
In addition to the fundamentals (Tone, Rhythm, Technique, Ear-Training, Sight-Reading), I also like to tie-in music theory, composition, and improvisation along the way. I believe in setting short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals that are specific to the student and their needs and wants. I also believe in the benefit of having the student bring in songs or materials that they are interested in, and designing lessons around their interests. I am patient, creative, and willing to move at any pace that is right for you.
Through my experience as an educator I understand that every student is different, and therefore, my job is to guide and facilitate learning, while making the process as enjoyable as possible! My approach is customized to bring out your strengths and interests, while also ensuring that you have a solid foundation on your instrument. In addition, I am professionally trained in both jazz & classical music, and I perform regularly with working bands of all types and genres.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, piano, guitars, clarinet, sax, flute, amps, seating for parents
*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are expected to have an instrument, and eventually selected method-books which will be decided upon for each student based on their needs, goals, or level.
*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of students, from beginner to professional levels of all ages.
Skills and teaching techniques vary specifically per individual, but may include saxophone technique (technical facility, tone, scales, overtones), improvisation (jazz as well as other styles), sight reading, music theory, ear training, transcription, composition, and repertoire development in all styles of music (jazz, classical, pop, funk, world, etc.)

I have been performing with classical, jazz, and various other groups for over 15 years. I started off on drum set and then expanded to classical and jazz percussion. My teachers include the principal percussionists for the New Moscow Symphony, Israel Philharmonic, and Atlanta Opera. I have extensive experience on stage, including shows at the Kennedy Center and a concert tour of Greece, and am an active performer and composer.
I have been teaching lessons for the past 5 years and love working with students of all ages and skill levels. I am very patient and interested in using my skills to help students reach their goals.
I work with students to establish milestones and individualize the structure of lessons to fit student-determined goals. While all students receive similar training in regard
During lessons we will generally play through last week's exercises, talk through any questions the student might have, discuss goals and progress, and come up with a set of assignments for next week. Assignments can include playing exercises out of a book, playing along to recordings, transcribing drum solos, theory assignments, and more.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

New profile. More details incoming.
My teaching style is very natural, and I like to emphasize the fact that music itself is natural and fun! I draw upon my extensive history of studying many instruments, and use all the best lessons that I was taught, along with some of my own ideas, to help students find the fastest, easiest, and most enjoyable way to improve
I have also trained in the Alexander Technique and in sports-focused physical therapy, which aids me in identifying and helping students solve technique problems that are causing issues with playing, or which could cause pain or injury down the line. So far (knock wood) I have not had any student suffer from the repetitive stress injuries which affect so many musicians.
I have been teaching lessons on multiple instruments for over 10 years, and my goal as a teacher is to help you reach your goals, and have fun on the way!

Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate drum student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

playing with Israeli superstars such as , Ninet Tayeb, Shai Gabso and Ran Danker.
In addition to playing live Iv'e been always liked to teach.
For me teaching is much more than just how to learn the instrument.
I remember clearly how my drum teacher effected me. being a better person on the way of being great drummer is my goal.
I am a professional, active drummer with a firm grasp on all styles ranging from rock to jazz.
Having had the opportunity to teach students of a wide range of ages (4-50 y/o), I've seen that everyone learns differently and at their own pace. My goal for each lesson is to hone in on the student's interests and base lesson material off of the music that they want to learn - be it classical, rock, or even video game music! I want there to be application for every thing taught in my lesson, and for the student to be able to relate one musical concept to another.
I am available to teach any of the instruments mentioned as well as any music theory, writing, or production lessons as well. I hope I can help you meet your musical goals!
