About Cem

Thanks for checking out my profile. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals in drum and percussion! Here's a little info about my musical training: Born in Istanbul, Turkey and raised in Tulsa, OK, my first musical experiences were on my grandmother's old piano. I was later introduced to a drum set when my brother and I received a drum set as a gift. I played in several local bands and in my high school jazz band in Tulsa, playing a range of musical styles from rock, swing, funk, and Latin. I decided in my senior year of high school to take music seriously and moved to NYC to study at the Drummer's Collective. During this period, I also focused on Middle Eastern hand percussion (doumbek, riq, and frame drum) and studied with Mehmet Akatay in Turkey. After ...

Cem is a great musician and instructor. His lessons are always informative, and best of all not boring. He plays alongside you and he is always patient, and helpful. Cem is a excellent teacher who wants to see his students progress, and I would recommend taking lessons with him.

Instructor Review

Cem is an excellent instructor, a very patient teacher that takes the time to discuss the importance of form and sound quality. I have always had the desire to play drums and have never played so I appreciate his approach of making me feel at ease by playing along with me so I can see his form and technique. All the feedback I have received I have been able to return to the next class with improved skill and understanding. I really enjoy and look forward to my classes and I am happy with my progression during a short period of time.

Paul W. Brooklyn, NY

I teach all styles and levels of drumming! Focus on listening, playing along to songs and recordings, groove, time keeping, technique and reading. Some discussion of music theory and history. I tailor my lessons to meet each individual student’s needs and expectations. I encourage students to bring their favorite songs and we usually end up working with those. I also like using songs by The Beatles as they provide a perfect (fun and familiar) platform to learn many different aspects of drumming and musical performance.

About Paul

As a teacher (and also father) Paul finds great joy in sharing his experience and insight with the next generation of creative musicians. For many years, he has taught drummers and percussionists of all ages and levels in academic settings as well as privately. He has also taught workshops and masterclasses at several renowned venues and music conservatories while touring with bands throughout Europe (Royal Academy of Music, London UK; Hull University, Hull UK; Centre des Musiques Didier Lockwood, Paris FR). Playing music has always been a part of Paul's life. Growing up in a family of musicians, he started playing cello at age 6 and he's been playing drums since age 8. After an extensive classical tutelage at the Music Conservatory in Esch/Alzette (Luxembourg) and at various music ...

He's an unbelievable teacher!

Paul is a teacher kids and parents would beg for! He's patient, kind, funny and amazing with my son. My child is not easy to calm, let alone teach, but Paul has this kind and fun personality that connects well with my son. When its time to learn they get down to business but when my son needs a break from the concentration, Paul allows him to break loose a bit and even joins in on the fun! I've never been more happy with a teacher before!!
Thank you Paul!! Your awesome!!!

Paul is awesome!

I started taking lessons with Paul when I was 14 to work on songs I was playing with a couple of friends at school. Paul teaches me so much and he's very organized. We have a lot of fun during lessons. He's very passionate about music and he knows how to convey his love for drumming.

Andrei P. Matawan, NJ

I have played and studied drums as a secondary instrument for quiet sometime. I have had some accomplished drum students.

I teach all the basic rudiments and have a strong focus on learning beats by ear. I like to teach my drum students to read and do rolls with a strong concentration on the snare drum.

About Andrei

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and beginner Drums. I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges. *** Lesson Details *** I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and ...

Andrei has been our weekly music teacher for more than three years. He teaches my son (now 9 years old) to read music and play the drums and the piano, and he teaches me to play the guitar.

Andrei has been nothing but reliable and generous with his time. He is proficient in music history and theory, in a wide range of musical styles, on multiple instruments. His patience, diverse knowledge and skills along with what appears to be an intuitive approach toward each of his varied students, has been very effective for us. Also, he knows A LOT of music, has a great ear and doesn't seem to mind working with us to play whatever tunes we come up with each week.

If you or your child wants to learn to play an instrument, this is the guy!

Great Teacher

Vince has shown patience and professionalism since the first day I started.
He answers questions fully and allow the lessons to flow at a pace that works for me.
His lessons stay on point and we don't proceed unless I have a grasp of the technique or principle.
I recommend him for prospective students of all ages.

The Man is Patient & Helpful

Since Dr. C. and I are the same age, we connected musically and share the same taste in artists and musical genres.
He takes the time to answer all questions and allows me the freedom to experiment while under his supervision.
I feel I am grasping the rudimentary basics of the instrument and look forward to my next visit.
There's an ease to our lessons and I never feel as if I'm being rushed.
Recommend him highly.

Acoustic Guitar · In studio
I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for 3 months now and have learned so much in that time. I was excited to learn the acoustic guitar, but a bit nervous since I have never taken any type of musical lesson or have ever had any success with learning an instrument. Jimmy's patience and fun personality put me at ease right away. I am an elementary teacher of over 20 years, so I could tell that I had made the right choice in coming to Jimmy for lessons. Jimmy takes the time to teach music theory, which I appreciate, and answers any questions that have. He is a very dedicated musician whose experience and knowledge become apparent as he teaches his students, and when you view his studio. He is very reliable, always getting back to me quickly when I correspond with him. If I have had to change lesson days due to weather or family commitments, he is always understanding and flexible. I highly recommend him to other perspective students and look forward to growing as a musician with him as my teacher!

I love working with students of all ages and walks of life and I can't wait to meet you!
