Lynn L.

Brooklyn, NY

I am not a percussionist, nor a professional drum-set player. But I do play drum set and have a general knowledge around the kit.
I can get you going from the beginning stages up through the first couple of years. Groove is everything. :-)

Asaf N.

Bayside, NY

About Asaf

I would not be the person I am today if music wasn't the focal point in my life as it is. Not only do I absolutely love performing and studying music myself, but I adore teaching as well. Part of the musical experience is taking what you hear and what you learn from others and building on it to create your own musical contributions. I take the gifts other teachers and musicians have given me very seriously and subsequently feel the great importance of imparting my knowledge unto others. Whether you want to be a professional, or just be competent enough to enjoy yourself, we all practice, study technique and gain knowledge about music with really only one goal in mind: To have all the tools necessary to express ourselves adeptly through music. All the technique in the world will not ...

Flexible teaching methods!

Asaf is just brilliant. During the first session, my son was very distracted by the other things in the music room ie lights, instruments etc but Asaf managed to engage him by being extremely flexible in his teaching ie he is not wedded to any order and has a lesson plan in mind but goes with the flow and the interest of the child - this ensures that all that was intended on being covered is, and as a result of the flexibility, my son just loves these drum lesson and Asaf. Asaf makes him focus and has built a great teacher/student relationship in only 3 session. I would highly recommend Asaf.

The Consummate Professional

Asaf has trained my son initially on a practice pad. Taught my son Quater notes, Eighth notes and moved on to the Snare Durm and worked his way up to 16th notes. He taught my son how to use wrist action, rather then his arms. The fact that ASAF travels to my home and instructs my son is definitely a plus. He is highly commmunicative and flexible.

Drum · In studio
im 23, been playing drums for 14 years,I had different teachers all growing up, but I realized that I had no real good knowledge of theory and '' why things works''.
iI've been taking classes with Rafael Leal for six months. During these six months there has been a lot of progress with the knowledge of music theory and my drums skills. There are a lot of music teachers out there, but Rafael's combination of knowledge and skills can not only craft you into a great drummer, but a great musician as well!I highly recommend you contact Rafael leal and pursue taking your music education to a new level.

Professional and competent...

I am a fellow musician, a piano/keyboard player. I first played with Rafael at jam sessions, where we met up several times before getting together privaetly for rehearsing and recording. Rafael is an easy going person who plays both comfortably and with conviction behind the drums. Literate in music notation, specializing in rhythms and patterns, Rafael plays many grooves from Jazz, Rock and Funk to Cumbia, Salsa and Brazillian rhythms for a nice, eclectic mix. Whether improvising or playing more in a tradition, exploring musical territory is a pleasure with Rafael, students can only benefit from his knowledge and experience. Enjoy the journey...

Christopher C.

Brooklyn, NY

My teaching method always revolves around keeping things loose and fun. However while we are working toward your goals (learning a specific drum pattern or playing along to your favorite band) I will be making sure that we are addressing important technique issues including dynamics, grip, posture and others.

Our lessons together can be customized any way you wish so no matter what your drumming goals are we can get there together. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Christopher

My name is Chris and I'm 32 years old. As the drummer for the band Phantogram I have played over 150 shows in the last year and a half and appeared on national television several times including Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman. I have been studying and playing drums for 20 years and have lots of experience I'd love to share with you. I have a very easy going personality and I enjoy tailoring lessons to a student's specific needs whatever they may be. I aim to make lessons fun and enjoyable and I look forward to hearing from you!

Knows how to keep things loose and fun. I take drums very seriously but it had been a long time since I had played so we made sure to cover the basics but have fun too.

Learning an instrument will give you much more than you can possibly imagine.

About Fabian

I've been teaching Drums for 10 years and my students have gone on to become professional musicians themselves. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to fluently play many rock and pop songs. I specialize in rock and pop , typically use Tommy Igoe's Groove Essential books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: fully equipped studio with drums, guitar, keyboard and recording gear.. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! Fabian was born in Bolzano Italy. He started showing interest for the drum set when he was 7. During his childhood and teen-age years he studied with many famous European drum and Music teachers. He played and toured with many ...

My son can't stop talking to everyone about his first drum lesson. He's so excited and looking forward to lesson#2. Fabian was patient and well- paced for my almost 5 year old jr drummer.

I am very glad that I found Fabian to teach me guitar. I was very nervous at first, because it is my first time learning, but I was extremely lucky to select Fabian. He is so patient and understanding, and explains everything so well. He is also fun, and brings ease and comfort to the lesson. He goes above and beyond. I look forward to our Monday lessons together. I highly recommend him.

Fabian is a great teacher, he helped me learn how to play acoustic guitar and helped me with my music theory. He is really patient and understanding. I would definitely recommend him to other students. He also has a very nice and private study space.
