I divide my lessons into technique (mostly done on a practice pad) and coordination (playing drums).
Learning the rudiments is essential for any drum set player or a percussionist. First, I focus on getting a nice clean single roll, double roll and a buzz roll which are the building blocks of all styles of drumming.
Once the student masters that he will be able to play with a nice feel and groove and have a natural approach to the drums so he can express himself effortless and with ease.
It will be lots of fun and you will groove with a smile on your face!

About Kolja
Kolja is a versatile drummer/percussionist that has been actively playing/teaching/recording for the last 20 years of his life.
He teaches at his studio in Bushwick.
He has studied Jazz drumming at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Europe. Although trained as a western drummer, studying with the Indian master drummer Taalyogi Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, has given him insight how to teach rhythm and make it a fun process.
The joy and the excitement while playing is what Kolja focuses is on. How to groove effortless and with ease is what he teaches!

Kolja is a wonderful teacher. He's very laid-back and easy-going and all around a very pleasant guy to get along with. He is also very willing to work with people in whatever desires they have for the drums. Don't get me wrong though, you're not goofing off during the lesson. He's very focused on teaching the drums well and wants to make sure you're solid in whatever it is you're learning. He has a good balance between patience and making sure you're not falling into bad habits by using poor technique repeatedly. No matter what skill level you're at, I'm positive that you have something to learn from Kolja.

Kolja is great! I've taken lessons for various instruments since I was young and never had as much fun as I do in drum lessons. He has a great energy and gives positive, constructive feedback. His years of experience as a drummer and instructor were immediately evident. I felt improvement even after the first week of practice! I appreciated that he took time to understand what I wanted out of drum lessons and how I prefer to learn. I have been wanting to start drumming for years and am so glad that I found Kolja!

I studied drums when I was younger and wanted to reacquaint myself with my long lost art. I am so happy I chose Kolja, He has this amazing joyful energy. He's an amazing drummer and can explain how to do it. Wow! He made me feel really comfortable from the get go. He was very thorough assessing my skill level, my goals and how much time I actually have to give to practicing. He is teaching me how to reread drum notation and really making sure I have the proper posture and holding the sticks correctly. I am very interested in jazz drumming and poly-rhythm. I think with him I will reach my goals. I'm slowly getting there. He is really good at explaining and showing. I think I really lucked out.

I've been performing for 10 years with drums. It's my passion instrument. It's what I wanted to play when i was a kid.

About David
I am a 20 year musician with 11 years teaching experience. Born and raised in New York City, I attended Laguardia high school for music and art and afterward Queens College majoring in music. My main instruments are Clarinet, Drums, and Saxophone, but i also have a strong background in Piano, Trumpet, and Flute. I've taken private music lessons for the past 15 years with world class musicians, among them David Weber and Howard Hirsch. I've performed in every major concert hall in New York City, including Carnegie Hall when i was only 11 years old. I performed alongside many famous musicians, including the late Tito Puente.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching includes all aspects of music; Musical theory, sight singing, as well as Music History. My teaching style allows the child to have fun while they learn their instrument, but I emph
asize a strong practice regiment. Your child will understand that while learning music and an instrument can be fun, there will be some work involved if they want to become great. I usually use either the Alfred or Rubank method books to supplement a curriculum that I tailor make for each individual student. Any question or confusion a student has about anything during the lesson will be explained in detail and dealt with until he/she understands the concept. I've had many students pass all levels of the ABRSM and NYSSMA exams as well as receive academic scholarships for musical excellence.

I have been playing drums for 15 years. I teach drum set up to an intermediate level, covering fundamentals, music theory, reading, and performance.

I prefer to work out of method books that take instructional material from well known pieces of music, primarily from the broad scope of the rock and roll genre. This ensures introduction and reinforcement of music fundamentals while maintaining the ever-important fun factor!

My goal is to take a beginner and create a capable drum set player who knows music fundamentals, and has been given a strong foundation for performance technique and capability.

About Timothy
I am a songwriter, composer, and performer living in New York City. I am a formally trained musician with considerable real world performing experience. Teaching music is something I enjoy immensely and something I am extremely passionate about.

During my time as a college student studying music, I began teaching guitar lessons. I found the work to be extremely rewarding. I was happy to be spreading a bit of love for music around, and I believe I made some lasting impressions. I continued to teach music lessons after I graduated, expanding to teach piano as well.

The more I taught, the more I found sincere joy in teaching. As I was was getting to know each of my students better, I realized that I was doing more than just teaching music lessons. I was acting as an example, a friend, and a counselor of sorts. I realized th
at each lesson was an opportunity to influence each of my students in a positive way, however small or large. To be granted that opportunity was truly thrilling.

I teach guitar from beginner to advanced levels of performance, in many styles. I teach piano up to an intermediate level. I specialize in Jazz, Folk, Blues, Rock, Funk, and pretty much any contemporary style a student might be interested in learning. Although not my specialty, I am capable of teaching classical styles as well.

I am very excited to teach anyone interested in learning about the wonders of music, and I work with all ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, students can expect to have fun while learning. I am friendly, warm, personable, caring, patient, and fun. I strive to find the perfect balance between learning the important fundamentals of music, and just plain enjoying music. Music takes hard work, but music is supposed to be fun!

I am a laid back person, and I do not expect any strict formalities when interacting with students. I feel that the more comfortable a student is, the more easily that student can learn and have fun doing so. However, I do expect my students to thoroughly practice, to focus, and to strive to improve.

I tailor each lesson to a student's particular needs. Everyone learns and interprets music in different ways, so I strive to serve each of my students uniquely. From basic fundamentals to advanced techniques, I cover everything. I also give each student an opportunity to choose some music that they will enjoy learning.

My curriculum changes depending on the student's ability level, age, and instrument of choice. I typically use a method book for reinforcement of musical fundamentals, and a supplementary "project" piece of music that the student enjoys playing and learning. I do this so that my students can see direct connections between music fundamentals and playing music that they enjoy. My own personal knowledge and experience as a musician is always added to each lesson as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For guitar lessons, I provide my guitar and any equipment that the student may not have initially, like for example, their own guitar, or music stand. Piano students will need their own keyboard for the very first lesson. The student should eventually provide their own instrument and equipment, such as their own guitar, music stand, and copy of the selected method book; all of which are things that they will need in order to pursue practicing on their own time.

*** Specialties ***
I am capable of teaching using many methods, styles, and genres, depending on the student and their particular needs. However, I specialize in jazz, folk, and rock styles, as well as improvisation.

About Granville
I operate in the music arena as a touring musician; a Music Director for musicals, jazz ensembles and choirs; a composer & songwriter; a band teacher at my local elementary school, a private instructor and a producer with a degree in Jazz Composition and Professional Music from Berklee College of Music. I am currently performing and writing with Divinity Roxx (Beyonce, Victor Wooten, etc.), Elle Winston, Kate Vargas and others. Most of my writing and creating is done here in my private studio. I am proud to have produced tracks featured by the likes of Elton John on his Beats 1 Radio (Apple Music) station. That is to say, I'm really proud of the artists and having such an inspired space.

I have, and continue to be honored to perform all over the world with some of the most prolific players this planet has seen and those it will experi
ence in the coming years. I find playing music can be a great source of inspiration and release. But most importantly, everyone has a voice to be heard through music.

I have taught privately since I was in high school on my own. Over the years, I have also been affiliated with some amazing entities. Additionally, my work in arts administrative (Brooklyn Academy of Music -BAM, UVA Music) translates into my ability to show you skills that will garnish success when you aren't playing music.

My students can expect growth in knowledge of rhythm, understanding of music and song forms. Your timing will improve! Your feel for styles (blues, rock, jazz, hip hop, EDM, etc.) will improve! Your technique will be through the roof!! I empower my students to do whatever they can dream to do with music, whether it is for personal enrichment or personal ambition.

I will demystify anything you feel is outside of your reach and grow you into the musician you want to be. My private studio is a fully equipped playground for the musically-minded with all the tools and materials you need to grow as a musician, so all you need to bring is your imagination. I look forward to the journey.

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.

About James

I understand that each student's journey is specific to them as an individual. As such I tailor my teaching to the direction that they want to go with drumming.

I've been drumming for 27 years and have played with numerous Grammy winning and Platinum selling National Touring and Recording Artists like Paramore, Florida Georgia Line, Godsmack, Incubus, Buckcherry, McKenna Faith, Breaking Benjamin, Eli Young Band and more.

As a student, you will have hands on dedicated personal and focused lessons. My personal music taste includes Hard Rock, Pop and Country music.

About Thomas
I am a professional touring and recording drummer. I graduated from West Milford High School then spent 2 years at the Drum-tech School of Music in London.

Drum students can expect to have fun first and foremost! You can expect to improve week to week in basic rudimentary knowledge, terms and technique. Most drummers hate rudiments! Depending on their teacher...they are boring and challenging to learn (but that's where all those great chops you want to learn come from!) I teach students to relax, not stress and understand that drumming and learning is a journey. It takes time to unlock their own individual sound and style on the drums and play with confidence, dynamics and expression.

I have been drumming for 27 years and depending on the goals and preference of the student, I can teach students various things like: Learning how to pla
y drums, how to read music, play their favorite song, improve bass drum speed, learn poly-rhythms, how to tune drums properly, proper playing technique, how to avoid injury your hands and improve your grip while playing etc etc.

As a professional drummer I frequently take trips to Nashville for performances, recording and meetings. In my experience so far, I have played with well-known artists like RONIN, Paramore, Florida Georgia Line, Godsmack, Buckcherry, Incubus, Eli Young Band, Trapt, Saving Abel and more. I have even written and co-written various songs for artists as well.

My personal passion is Hard Rock, Metal, Pop and Country but I firmly believe that great technique and basics of drumming are essential to any and every style you play. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to accomplish your goals of become a better musician!

I wanted to learn to play drums as I've always dreamt of being able to play so I started taking lesson with David. He is very patient and has been able to discover a "sense of rythm" I didn't even know I had inside of me. His approach to teach me was very powerful and he transformed me from total dummy to a good drummer in a very short time. I will never stop to thank him for his professionalism and his patience. I highly recommend David to everyone who wants to learn how to play Drums or becoming a pro.

I think drums lessons are not the easiest thing to do online. David was incredibly prepared for that and had all the necessary tools to have a good sound from skype so that i could hear everything, and specially all the necessary instruments prepared so that i could fully take advantage of the hour lesson.Also his Online lessons are pretty fun, sometimes he would make a little funny statement just to break the little ice that online communication can create through a screen, which I found out is pretty important.
Finally, when it's online the lesson is also focused towards music knowledge and suggestions about music history that we all should be aware of.
