Private Drum Teacher

My lessons focus on musicality and execution in a professional setting. I have played with a huge variety of artists, including Joan Baez, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Emmylou Harris, Glen Hansard, and Bob Weir. I also earned a jazz degree and played around NYC for 20 years. My advanced lessons explore the intersection of technique and music, while my beginner lessons focus more on individual interests and how to achieve our musical goals.

About Liam

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!

I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

Fun first lesson. Jared was ready on-time and figured out quickly where to begin working and also had very good integration with the computer, pulling up charts and sheet music and helping us follow along. We look forward to more lessons!

I've had three banjo teachers over the past two and a half years. Judging by Jared's performance today, he's the best of the lot. The first banjo teacher expected too much too soon, and the second one started me out with the basics, as if I had never picked up a banjo before. Jared is starting our lessons at the right stage for where I am. He's patient and explains things well. If I had started with him two and a half years ago, I'd be a decent banjo player by now. Thanks, Jared!!!!!

Online Drum Teacher

I started my musical experience as a drum student, studying privately and while in the jazz band at school for five years. I also have five years of experience performing and working with live music acts. We will work through various rhythms and feels, and choose a solid song list of classic songs ranging in style in order to practice versatility as a drummer. I am happy to work with you as a developing musician to feel more confident and have fun behind the drum kit. Send me a message and we'll talk more!

About Juan

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor."

Adam makes you feel as if no question is a dumb question and is happy to take you along the journey that is mastering an instrument. Great teacher and great guy!!
