About Yves

I grew up in Quebec City Canada, where I only spoke French during those growing years. From a very young age, I was always attracted to music and particularly playing drums. My mom has told me that before I could even walk, I was already banging away on whatever I could put my hands on. I would sit down with pots, pans, and spoons and bang away. My parents bought my first “real” drum kit when I was about five years old. It was a Mickey Mouse drum set that they ordered from the Sears catalog. I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, because of the poor quality of the drum, this particular kit only lasted a couple months, but it was on that very drum kit that I gave my first live performance. The concert took place in the basement of my house. This memorable concert included one song, a French ...

Yves truly qualified in experience and teaching ability

Selected Yves as a drum teacher for my son based on his profile. Yves is an experienced, patient and fun instructor that has been effective making drumming fun and interesting to my five year old. Yves is good at making sure parents understand how to help their child in the learning process. Yves is a bit further out from me but I am not disappointed. Thank you Yves.

Yves is THE BEST instructor!

My son is 5-years-old and quite an active little guy! When he said he was interested in learning to play guitar, I wasn't sure we would be able to find a teacher for his age. We did; Yves is the best! Yves is always patient with him and understanding of his age/ ability. He instructs him with kindness and holds his attention. Yves also has a wonderful home studio in a nice home/area. He is flexible with scheduling as well. He goes above and beyond with extra help and recommendations for helpful materials. My son looks forward to seeing him every week and sharing with him 'how much I practiced'. We would highly recommend Yves to anyone.

Yves was our 11-year-old grandson's first drum teacher and he was great. Yves knew how to let him play around a little bit and still keep him on track. Our grandson always looked forward to his next lesson and was excited to go. The driving distance got to be too much so we had to find a teacher who was closer to us.

Excellent Lessons

After 40 years, I decided I wanted to learn how to play the piano. James has been an excellent teacher, taking me from knowing nothing at all about the piano to being able to play short songs. I look forward to practice and to my lessons every week.

James is patient, encouraging, and always offers helpful suggestions. Highly recommended!

Robert is great to work with. We were able to identify my vocal range, introduce me to some basic music theory and help identify ways to expand my air capacity all within just a few lessons. I'm looking forward to each one and furthering my knowledge.

About Valentina W.

I am delighted as a music teacher and performer, with excitement and joy when my students really enjoy music. A musician is just like a 'Messenger of Love, Beauty, and Truth', bringing to people what is lovely, truthful and pure. Learning a musical instrument can open our eyes to see beauty of life, to embrace our sense of being and further, to prove that quality and purpose of life results from more than just physical satisfaction. For years we find that most studios, limited to resources and the pressure of exams - a competition-oriented approach, provide merely technical training on skills, but not a holistic encountering of music. We will try to bring about a different approach: Without diminishing the skill training, we will enhance the music appreciation training by guiding

As a amateur adult my major goal is to enjoy playing piano. Dr. Huang really showed her depth in providing substantial multimedia recordings and skill demonstration.

Really enjoy the lesson and can't stop thinking the stories shared behind the music piece...

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!

About Thaddeus

I've dedicated a lifetime to learning, studying and performing on Latin Percussion and Drum set. I began study at age 13 and was playing professionally by the age of 18. The truth is, I didn't wake up one day and choose drums and Latin Percussion - It chose me! And thankfully, music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I've been fortunate to have experience in performing all kinds of music as well as formal study with master drummers from Cuba, veteran Jazz Drummers, Soul drummers, a school education in music and drums, and also have the intuitive music knowledge that only comes from a lifetime of dedication to the art form. Because of my playing experience - I can teach you all kinds of music styles! Salsa, Latin & Brazilian, Jazz, Church Worship, Rock, Soul,

Conga Drums · In studio
I've grown up much of my life witnessing various great conga players that I have been privileged to experience. At a workshop held by Thaddeus with several other students, I was able to gain a much better understanding of conga rhythms and patterns. In addition to this, Thaddeus brings extensive knowledge on the history of the conga to further my understanding and learning. With a group performance at the end of the workshop season, our group was able to demonstrate what we learned for many others.

Percussion · In home
Thaddeus helped me learn various characteristics of percussion and I am grateful for his instruction. One thing I appreciated about learning percussion from Thaddeus was his ability to not only be able to explain the music but to be able to artfully explain musical concepts, relationships between percussionist and other musicians in a group, and how to use the various percussive instruments. Thaddeus' decades of experience become evident in his teaching. Thanks to the instruction I received, I was able to perform much more confidently in various performance and live group environments.
