Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

Private Drum Teacher

You've got to walk before you can run, so I focus on the basics. But, the basics can be a lot of fun! Especially once we start to apply them to your favorite songs, and being creative with them - that's kind of what it's all about!

About Mike

Learning to play an instrument is a mixture of a lot of fun, and a lot of hard work. My strength is finding what will inspire my students to WANT to put in those difficult hours of practice, and then showing them how to apply what they have learned in a creative way, so that they experience the fu

Amazing, patient really informative instructor and just a great guy. Highly recommend.
Vince
Mike was really the best instructor I could have asked for. Knowledgeable, patient, and best of all, chill when he needed to be. I was just picking up the drums for a high school band I was in at the time, and he was more than willing to help me learn whatever dumb song me or my band had decided sounded cool at the time. At the same time, he showed me a lot of really excellent practice techniques, directed me to some solid literature for different rhythms to work on, and would sit with me through a whole hour of my relentless mistakes like it was nothing. More than a good instructor, he's a really cool guy! He never missed a beat!

Mike brings it all to the lesson...musicianship,
decades of experience, versatility and creativity.

Private Drum Teacher

***I am a freelance musician/percussionist in the NYC area but I am currently teaching online lessons from my Texas home in the midst of the pandemic.***

Being from Texas, music education became a huge part of my life from the moment I picked up a pair of sticks in 2001. I received two performance degrees from very prestigious music/percussion programs (Florida State and Eastman School of Music) and I have been private teaching since 2013. Lessons with me could set you up for either great success and/or to simply have a very good time learning something new. Whatever goals you have, I will do my very best to fulfill them. I have training on the following instruments: marimba, xylophone, vibes, bells, snare drum, timpani, drum set, auxiliary instruments (tambourine, triangle, cymbals, tom-toms, etc) and a few hand drums. I currently have access to a drum set, marimba and drum pad/snare drum.

My son Christopher received private lessons from Ms. Gartin when she was here at Brennan High School. He learned so much from her and gained such a confidence in himself. She taught him so much, and helped him discover his passion for music. HIGHLY recommend her for lessons! We miss you Ms. Gartin!

My daughter took drum lessons with Sarah. She made huge advancements in percussion during this time and the relationship between her and my daughter was remarkable. It is a blessing to find someone that your children bond with and look up to.

Any genre, any song. Teaching for 20 years. I tailor each lesson to the needs/goals of every student.

For beginners, I can write easy versions of your favorite songs for you, while giving you a well balanced music education.

For more advanced players, I can show you how to play almost any drum part, and show you tips on how to figure out drum parts by ear and make your own.

Since I play other instruments, I can show you how to jam to anything and sound good while having a blast!

For children, I make lessons fun and varied with learning and musical games to keep them excited and engaged.

For everyone, I can teach you the most efficient ways to learn any musical skill based on experience and leading scientific books on learning, while keeping lessons fun!

Moeller, Groove, Creativity in problems solving, the essentials ;)

I enjoy trying to make a connection on your level. We all come from different backgrounds but teaching and learning music is just like learning a language.

Interested in creating a natural feel and sound on whatever instrument you play? Improving your technique? 4 mallet marimba? Drumset?

For the better part of my adult life I have been performing and teaching classical contemporary music. Although I am well versed in the traditional repertoire of classical percussion (orchestral and contemporary chamber music/solo), my heart is first and foremost a performer. If you are looking to become creative musician who enjoys a challenge and likes to find creative solutions to skill-building, let me know! I'm sure I can help and would love to work with you!

"Alfredo is an amazing drum and a terrific, thoughtful teacher. When I started my lessons with him, as an intermediate drummer, I thought I knew what I needed to do to improve. He listened to my thoughts and then evaluated my proficiency, and then together we modified my lesson plan to grow in areas I didn't even know were weak.

I've never worked extensively on my left foot- it wasn't something that I thought, for the music I was playing, I really needed to develop past the basics. Now, having seen what he can do, I'm working diligently to develop more 4-way independence and adding a powerful playing ability to my arsenal.

I will be working with Alfredo for a while and I really look forward to growing. I also enjoy my lessons simply because he's a great guy. And his custom made drum set that he built himself is awe-inspiring."

Murray does a great job of encouraging the student while he is teaching. He takes the time needed to explain the very basics before moving onto the more difficult concepts.
