By listening to + watching my students to determine where they're at musically, I help develop their skills through custom tailoring each lesson based on the education and experiences I sought out.
If you're interested in learning to become a musician through the many instruments that make up your drum kit - send me a message.
My influences include Buddy Rich, Animal from The Muppets, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, John Bonham, very recently Keith Moon, and my mentor & favorite person in the world, Normie Wayne.
I have been a drummer my whole life. I started at the age of six and have two degrees in percussion performance.
My name is Noel B., and I am a musician living and working in New York City.
When teaching a new student I employ many different methods. To me, music is about playing with people. Its important to be able to play by yourself but there are things you just can't learn unless you play with people. I liken it to taking soccer lessons but never playing on a team. Also, its important to perform. All of my students are invited to perform at a venue with a grand piano that professional musicians in the city play. This really helps the students and I set goals, and achieve them. I also use some method books, theory and other things, but just making it about playing makes the lessons much much more fun and inspiring for the students.
I currently teach at two music schools apart from my Private studio. O
I hope to inspire others to pursue a musical life. No matter how serious and long, or short and light.
One of my ultimate goals in teaching is to help my students develop the skills and knowledge to not only be able to play well, but to also be able to teach themselves (and hopefully others in the future). Thank you for your time! Have a great day!

Noel has an extremely diverse background in much that goes well beyond the guitar - He's an awesome drummer as well. This made the lessons even more interesting since he could offer perspective from the drummer's point of view, stressing how important rhythm is to becoming a solid guitarist.
On top of everything else, one of the things I like the most about taking lessons with Noel is that sitting down with him is like sitting in on a jam session - a pretty cool feeling for someone who's somewhat new to music, but has always wanted to learn.

My teacher is amazing. A master professional in his musical field. He teaches like he's done it for decades, even though so young. I would dare to say he can teach with his eyes close. I love all his teaching techniques, from theory to scale, to practicing the Hanon Studies, to ear training and on. I like how he plays along with me while teaching me a new musical score. He completely dedicated to teaching his student and making sure his pupil is satisfied with his performance. He'll even help you with preparing you for an recital or musical event. He knows how. I highly recommend for teaching any pupil from age 3 to 92. He'll ask me what I want to do next, and then we look for scores that I can learn according to my level.. He's attention to your needs as a student and works around it. I always look forward to going to my next lesson and see how I improved and what's new score he's prepare for me to learn.

My son Steve had started playing the drums in 5th grade as part of the school music program, but at age 11 he wanted to start taking them more seriously, so my wife and I bought him a shiny new drumset for Christmas. Lo and behold, it sat in our basement for a year without being touched. Finally, we insisted he take a few lessons and start practicing on his set; after much arm-twisting, we got him to agree to take lessons from Alex for three weeks before giving up on music entirely. After the first lesson, Steve came home, set up his drumset, and practiced for 3-4 hours every night that week. Alex provided him with ample practice materials to get started, and also exposed him to lots of different music to inspire him. Last week Steve was talking about Roy Haynes and Art Blakey, names I hadn't heard someone say since my father passed away (he was a HUGE jazz fan). In several months, my son has progressed to the point where he has to choose which friends to jam with on Saturdays--he simply doesn't have time for all of them! I've seen it affect his studies too--through elementary and middle school, Steve was an average student that did what he had to to get by, but this year he has really turned it around, finishing all his assignments the day they're assigned and going out of his way to complete extra credit opportunities in his classes. I am sure this motivation will seriously help him as he enters high school, as long as he keeps playing the drums and getting lessons from Alex. Although most of our lessons are in Alex's well-equipped studio, a couple times we needed him to come to our house and it wasn't a problem at all; he was on time and brought necessary materials with him. Alex's lessons have had a major impact on not only my son's musical development but his life, and I would strongly recommend him to any parent looking for a drum instructor.

After just a few months of lessons, I've improved enormously and it feels like there's more potential on the horizon. The exercises he gives me are spot on and for the first time I'm really enjoying practicing. Taking lessons with John is the real deal - he's truly transmitting what it means to play and I can see him easily transitioning between players of any ability with patience. I admire him as a musician, and he's also just an awesome guy. Would recommend to anyone.

I love music. Since you're taking the time to read this, chances are you (or your kid) do too. My goal as a teacher is to bring out the best in each individual student. Every musician has a unique voice. Some teachers devise lessons for students with a "one-size-fits-all" mentality. I know from my experience that this does not work for all students because everyone learns differently and wants to learn different things. As your teacher, I will make my lesson plan fit exactly what you want and need as a student. My lessons focus on technique and musicality, and I will teach you exactly what you need to become the best musician you can be.
Learn a variety of percussion and drum styles with an emphasis on fundamental technique, time/rhythm, and musical expression!
My name is Taylor and welcome to my teacher bio. I'm a passionate drummer/percussionist with a diverse teaching and performance background. I have a degree from The Cleveland Institute of Music in Timpani/Percussion where I studied mostly classical music. However, I have played and studied drum set for the last 15 years in addition to my classical studies. I'm always looking for new styles of music to immerse myself in!
As an educator, I have a diverse background. I have experience in the public school system teaching at The Cleveland School of the Arts, an alternative public school for artistically gifted students in the Cleveland, Ohio Metropolitan School District. Additionally, I am a drum/percussion instructor at Hunterdon Preparatory School, an alternative public School in Annandale, New Jersey. I have marching band
I pride myself on my flexibility as an educator. All students are different and all students learn differently, and I hope we can find out what works best for you to meet your musical goals.
I look forward to meting you!
Want to start learning how to play drums? As your teacher, I will focus on all the aspects which make a well-rounded drummer. Each lesson will be customized to both the goals, and the needs of the student. We will cover everything from various styles (i.e. rock, funk, jazz, latin, etc...), to drum technique, to reading, to transcribing, and the list goes on. If you are a beginner looking to build a solid and well-rounded foundation on the drums, then my lessons are for you!
My lessons are designed for beginners. The main goal of my lessons are to create a solid and well-rounded foundation within the student. As a result, the student will learn various styles, learn how to read and transcribe, learn technique, and, in general, learn the skills needed to play with others, whether that be in a jam session with friends, the jazz band at school, or in your own band.
While there will be a standard curriculum within the lessons, each lesson will be customized to meet the needs and goals of the student.
My personal passion is jazz, however, the fundamentals that you will learn are essential for a drummer in any style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your musical journey!
