About Peter
I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable f
inding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body. Rhythmic breathing is made simple and encouraged from the start. Tones and drum patterns can be explained verbally or written mathematically. Students remember the patterns forever, as well as gaining comfort in playing with other drummers or instruments. Odd time signatures or complicated songs can be tackled and easily learned. Use any drum or percussion instrument you have! Recordings are encouraged if you like!

Peter grew up in Chicago, raised to love soulful music. A graduate of Northwestern University's Performance Studies program with a focus on Theatre and Media Arts, Public Speaking, and Ethnology. Designing percussion for stage and dance lead to studies and teaching of North and West African, Middle Eastern drum, Caribbean/South American and Asian drum and percussion rhythms. First hand experience has been gained by living in Morocco and South Korea for nearly a year each, studying and documenting folk music.

About Ari
Hello there! My name is Ari, and I am a MA in Government graduate student living in Marblehead. I have been tutoring for 8+ years and working in education/childcare generally for about 10 years. I hav
e worked with kids of all ages (elementary to college) in all major subjects and several specialties.

I have worked with individuals with several types of learning, social, and emotional complications. I have worked with several learning styles and therein take an adaptive teaching approach. I see tutoring as not pure pedantry, but a constructive process whereby the student, the student's parent(s) (if involved) and myself regularly discuss the style of the tutoring sessions as well as the student's study habits as appropriate by age.

Ari is Awesome! My daughter is about to turn 14, and has been having a lot of trouble getting history to "stick". She likes mythology and ancient history, but anything after the Fall of Rome - forget it! In one ear and out the other!
Enter Ari - he's totally turned that frown upside down! She's actually excited about the stuff they talk about, and she feels confident that she'll be caught up and ready to move into high school with some strength in history, instead of dread! In fact, she's even talking about trying for honors history!!
Ari is enthusiastic and engaging, and motivating! YAY!

I graduated with a 4.0 from Lexington High School, one of the top public high schools in the country. I got a 2380 out of 2400 on the SAT and did very well on AP tests and the SAT Subject Tests. I att
ended Harvard College where I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and a major in Economics. I now run a tech startup which makes educational apps for patients at hospitals. I am a good listener and work to personalize my teaching so each student gets the most out of it. If you work with me once, I think you'll see I'm good at what I do.
