Recently Phil has been working with some of the most popular dance/show bands in the Northwest, including The Goods, That 80's Show, Galaxy 54, Vanity, and Gold Digger.

rivate instructor with Music Works Northwest and the Seattle Drum School. Currently Phil teaches privately in several different studios in the Seattle Puget Sound area.

I teach the Moeller Method. This is a system of technique which involves three basic wrist motions. The basics can be taught in one lesson, but the application takes a lifetime. I also teach all popular styles of contemporary drum set, such as rock, jazz, funk, r&b, and many different Latin styles. I work with students on reading both on snare drum and drum set and also get them playing along and transcribing with recordings of whatever style of music is of interest to them.

I am over 60 and always wanted to learn music, especially the drums. Phil is not only a great teacher, but also has shown remarkable patients for someone like myself with absolutely no music talent whatsoever.

From how to hold a stick and drum rudiments through reading advanced from music and playing to a click track

About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

My teaching approach combines real-world experience and a studied knowledge of how the brain learns music at different ages. I've been teaching for over 10 years and love teaching students of all ages and levels.

*45 minute lessons are only recommended for students 13 or younger.

About Kate
Originally from Buffalo, drummer/composer/improviser Kate Gentile has played and recorded with a panoply of renowned musicians since moving to NYC in 2011.

Kate has played with Anthony Braxton, Dustin Carlson, Andrew D'Angelo, Kris Davis, Marty Ehrlich, Michael Formanek, Ben Gerstein, Jon Irabagon, Chris Lightcap, Terry McManus, Matt Mitchell, Helado Negro, Ted Reichman, Chris Speed, and the Asphalt Orchestra, and has recorded with Jasmine Lovell-Smith's Towering Poppies and David Aaron's Flip City.

"...[G.'s] inventive drumming...eads the listener into a gentle place." -Step Tempest

"[G.'s] drum work on this [Fortune Songs] is exquisite." -“Bird Is The Worm

In addition to being a frequently used sideman and collaborator, Kate also leads bands exploring her own music, which often tend towards dense, long-form compositions with
unconventional rhythms and harmony. Her music has been described as "...hyper-detailed...designed to spur multi-faceted improvisation". Her most recently formed trio with pianist Matt Mitchell deals with a new book of compositions containing varied forms and harmonic and rhythmic structures that demand a spectrum of improvisational creativity.

Kate holds a dual degree in Jazz Performance and Music Education from the Eastman School of Music. Kate has also studied independently with a host of great drummers, improvisers, and composers, including Dan Weiss, Tim Berne, Tony Malaby, Marc Ducret, Miles Okazaki, and John Riley.

Kate has enjoyed teaching drum lessons independently for 10 years and has taught at the NYSMF summer jazz program and several schools.

Kate is an energetic and passionate educator and forward thinking musician.

Snare drum and drum kit.

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:
Elements of rhythm
Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation
Tone development
Finding/Expanding your range
Dexterity, speed, and accuracy

How to advance to the next level

Ani is a wonderful teacher! I have always wanted to learn to play the Piano. But, it was my daughter who first started learning with Ani. It was evident that Ani is a higly skilled pianist. And I saw how much my child enjoyed the lessons, the easy rapport that was established and the wealth of knowledge that Ani brings. Needless to say, I signed up too! My daughter and I love our lessons and look forward to the class each week.

Ani is an amazing instructor. It is clear that she cares very much about her profession. I signed up for voice lessons, and she has been teaching me to read music and play the piano because it all ties together. She is also getting me to a point of independence so that I can practice at home with ease. I just love how peaceful and non-judge-mental she is... I have learned lots and I am very happy I found her :)!

I teach all levels and styles of drumset. I tend to focus on groove and playing for the music while also making sure the student has a firm grasp on fundamentals and technique.

About andy
I started playing drums when I was 9 years old. My passion grew through high school and I decided to go to college for music. I attended the Jazz / commercial music program at Temple University, graduating with a bachelor of Music degree. During my university training I had the opportunity to play in all kinds of Jazz, Funk and Fusion and Rock bands. I also played snare drum with the Temple Diamond Marching Band for 2 seasons as well as playing a season with the classical percussion ensemble.

Upon graduation I became involved with many local Philadelphia rock bands and played shows all over the Delaware Valley. I began teaching drum lessons at area music stores as well as worked as a recording engineer at the production music company Musicrafters.

After college and always hungry to learn more about my instrument, I traveled to New Yor
k City to study at Drummers Collective with Sandy Gennaro (Joan Jett, Cyndi Lauper) and Pete Zeldman. During this time I played with two very successful Philly based rock bands, Tenth House and Iota and the Minor Details.

Prior to moving to Los Angeles I was based in Asheville North Carolina where I played with several area artists. In 2014-2015 I did a substantial amount of touring all over the East Coast and Midwest with an alternative folk indie band called Matt Townsend and the Wonder of the World.

Currently I am located in Los Angeles.

I look forward to being your drum teacher !
