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

The percussion family of instruments is the widest and diverse of all, from hand percussions to bells, timbales, shakers, etc...
All involve a unique technique, but they do have a large common approach and require and strong understanding of rhythms and poly-rhythms.
Whatever your final goal I will make sure that you are well prepare and have the appropriate technique.

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!

"Great teacher!

Henri is great!! He is a super experienced and knowledgable drummer (musician) and teacher. He is extremely patient, has taught me my basics, technique, and is very open to teaching what you want to learn, willing to teach you what you are really interested in musically. At the end of every lesson, he reviews what we learned, writes it and lets me video it so I can practice at home. He has been really flexible, patient, laid back and always down to work on whatever you want but great at coming up with lessons that challenge and excite you as well. I could'nt be more pleased with Henri as a teacher. I always look forward to my lessons."

"I am a high school band director and Cameron was our percussion instructor last school year. He did a wonderful job with the students! He covered all areas of percussion from marching band, to concert band, and even percussion ensemble. He pushed the students and expanded their skills on all percussion instruments, all while keeping things engaging for the students. He programmed for and rehearsed our three percussion ensembles last year. Cameron was an integral part of our band program and our students loved working with him!"

With her kind, friendly, patient teaching style, he was immediately comfortable and learned quickly. With her guidance, 3 years later he is doing great things in high school! Yulia is an absolute gem — a professional who is also a great teacher. We would give her 6 or 7 stars if we could!!"

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."
