I have a 100% rate of getting my students into their school of choice as of yet. Although I don't guarantee it, I will work relentlessly to make sure you are well prepared though. I will also lend you PDFs of books to help you save a buck.

About Scott
*Brief Update: Both of my 8th grade students were accepted to LaGuardia High School and my 5th grade student was accepted into Mark Twain Middle School for the Gifted & Talented. He also passed his audition for Borough Wide Band. Next up is getting my Junior in high school into All State Orchestra!*

*Update again. My student made all state!

I have been playing drums and percussion since the ripe old age of 9, in 4th grade. Originally wanting to play the clarinet, my music teacher thought my sense of rhythm was too good to waste and placed me in the drum section. I was the only kid who didn't want to play drums. Twenty years later here I am, a professional freelancing percussionist and teacher. The journey to where I am was a long and winding one but I can't imagine it any other way. After learning basic drumming in elementary sch
ool, I continued through middle school. There I was placed on drum kit and thought I was the coolest. I didn't take it too seriously but serious enough to keep playing drum kit. When choosing high schools I wasn't interested in keeping with drums. I only took marching band because it meant no gym. After my first year I was placed in every band the next three years, having to learn timpani and marimba for concert band. I was also recommended to join a city wide concert band, InterSchool orchestras of New York, and haven't left since. I still coach the band and help tons of high school and middle school students hone their craft. Also that year, through ISO, I was given a chance to attend French woods performing arts camp on scholarship where I began my love of playing in musical pit orchestras. Through this time I studied with a couple of teachers and had plenty of coachings with professional percussionists. Upon graduating I have played well over 100 different musicals, played with over 25 different orchestras, and have taught over 100 students both privately and in coachings. I currently run a Drumline out of a private school, coach ISO band, freelance and have a studio of 8 students. That is a short sample of my journey and I hope it inspires you to study with me.

If you choose me as a teacher, I will shape you as an overall musician, not just a "Drummer". What this means is that you won't just learn beats from me, you will learn all the fundamentals of basic to intermediate music theory, from note reading and rhythm to chord changes and ..... You will start on a practice pad and quickly go to a drum kit. Lessons will be half and half, but more 75/25 drumkit, because everything you learn on a pad can translate to the kit! I would also teach you timpani and xylophone if you like so you can broaden your horizons and even get into the middle/high school or college you want. I have most of my books of pdf that I can give you to print or you can purchase your own copies. You would also need to purchase a practice pad and eventually a drum kit. If you don't want to purchase a drum kit then there is almost no reason to study it since you won't be able to practice between lessons. Practicing, let's talk about that. It is expected that you practice the material we learn in the lesson throughout the week. Now I know everyone is busy, but if you can put aside 25 minutes (a sitcom without commercials!!) a day then you will have a better understanding and better retention of the material. Doing this will let us just review the material a little bit and go on to learn new and exciting things.

The bottom line in choosing me? I am a professional musician in the trenches of the nyc music scene and know what it takes to make it.

Had my first lesson with Scott today. I was very happy with the way it went . I'm 50 years old with no experience at all - so I can honestly say the lesson was enjoyable without any pressure.

Scott is inspiring, motivating, caring, attentive, personal and professional. In only a few weeks my daughter is developing a solid foundation in technique, rhythmic notation and musicianship. I would strongly reccommend him.

Rhythm is one of the essential elements of music. A background in drumming can help you to better understand any instrument.

About Eric
Performing and recording musician with several groups for over 15 years. I have been teaching private lessons and classes in community education to students of all ages since 2007. I have also taught music in early childhood education, St. Paul Public Schools as well as music therapy programs at Minnesota Veterans Homes. I am always excited to witness my students joy as they reach and exceed their goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Relaxed lessons geared toward the students goals. Various styles and techniques; Fun and efficient practice exercises; Improvisation; Patience and attention to progress; Wide Chord Vocabulary; Music Theory in a way that is easy to understand; Tone development and playing by ear.

Every student is an individual and responds better to different teaching styles as well as learn at their own pace. My goal as
a teacher is to give you an enjoyable experience in learning a new instrument and to tailor the lessons based on your interests and goals. After the first few months a beginner student can expect to have learned basic techniques and useful skills to allow them to play simple songs and melodies with ease.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are taught in a studio with amps, acoustic guitars and electric guitars, ukuleles, along with fretless and fretted bass guitars, drums, microphones, recording equipment and software, are available for a student to use during the lesson time.

Great first lesson. Attentive, and I felt like we got right to playing. The hour went by real quick, but I feel like I gained something already, and expect to learn more in future lessons.

Did a great job of meeting me halfway on my experience level.

I have over 13 years experience teaching people of all ages from 6 to 60 years of age. Some of my teaching included at a local music school/store as well as a national music studio. I am very good at starting first time drummers out on the right path for learning to play the drums. I teach many different styles and concepts. I am very patient and understanding when it comes to teaching. I am very focused on keeping lessons fun.

About David
David graduated from the Phillips Jr. College in Salt Lake City, UT to receive an Associates degree in 1994 for Business Management. He began playing drums at seventeen, and soon after studied under a professional instructor and musician for 2 years. He continued to study at Brighton Music for 4 years, learning to fine tune his technique and dynamics, studying jazz. Soon after, David began performing professionally in bands for rock, pop and Jazz, and started teaching part time. In 2004, David began teaching privately and at a local music school. He offers rock, linear playing, shuffles, fusion drumming, double bass, funk drumming, Latin styles, jazz, independence, snare drum studies, and stick control. I teach all levels from beginning to advanced. I care about my students, and want the best for them. I will always try to keep lesson
s fun. I will not hesitate to go the extra mile for students when learning to play the drums, even if that means spending extra quality time with them.

Luis did an amazing job with my son. My son struggles with focusing and attention, and Luis was a perfect fit for him. He really worked hard with him over the course of a year + to prepare him for Lavilla auditions. I can confidently say that without Luis's help, my son wouldn't have passed his audition with flying colors and get to attend such an amazing band program at a great school. We are eternally thankful for his help!

Teaching students how to play with bands and read music are both important. I've played over 27 years and taught over 17 of those years. Grooves, coordination, reading and soloing are all aspects of what I teach from mostly my own books. I combine having fun with the commitment of practicing into a well rounded learning experience. I have recitals for students to show off their talents 1-2 times yearly. I'm versatile in teaching new drummers or advanced students. I look forward to our lessons.

About Danny
I've played drums about 30 years and taught lessons about 20 of those years. Each student is different and I've evolved my lessons to accommodate teaching each student. My background consists of all styles of Drumset, marching band, rock bands, soloing and Troopers drum corps. Also playing in jazz, concert and orchestra bands gave me opportunity to perform and compete many places including P.A.S., scoring a 1 @ state and G.C. drum off. I took private lessons for a few years before leaving to college in Hollywood, CA, attending M.I.(Musicians Institute) with one of my instructors becoming the current drummer for Korn, "Ray Luzier". I now teach mostly out of my own books on how to read music, coordination, grooves, soloing and playing with bands. If you are not local, I offer online lessons too. I have 1-2 recitals each year and make it pos
sible for online students to participate. Accepting beginner to advanced drummers, come check it out.

About John
Started playing a Soprano Uke at an early age. Quickly moved to a Baritone Uke and wrote my first song at age 11. This also was the year that a Drum Set came into our house. I was in love with music . . . and still am after all these years!!
Hear are instruments I play professionally: Acoustic & Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drum Set. I also have performed and led worship with the Electronic Keyboard. I can do beginner lessons in all of the above and Banjo, Mandolin & Fiddle.
Over the years I have enjoyed leading Worship Bands, forming Praise Teams, joining the "pit" for Musical Theater, Bluegrass Band, Solo Guitar & Voice and Background Music on the Keyboard. The list goes on and on and on AND the list is not finished yet. Have written quite a few songs and worked with other song writers on their pieces. If you hope to be a singer/son
gwriter . . . then I am your man! I can help with voice coaching and experienced critique of lyrics and chord selections.
Great success teaching the above instruments as well. The youngest student taught is 5 years old and the most mature was 72 years young!
I want you to know that I am a Christian. My love for Jesus continues to grow and I have always been careful to screen certain songs out of my repertoire and teaching.
Let me share with you My Love of Music and get you where you are hoping to go with yours.

John is a gifted musician and teacher and an even better person! He is very patient and can teach to any skill level. He was able to teach me, a non musician with no real musical talent, to play and enjoy the acoustic guitar. I highly recommend John if you are considering taking acoustic guitar lessons!

I get pretty excited when when my new students pick up a new groove or take a new step in developing their technique! I've been drumming for 15 years and professionally for about 5, including paid gigs and teaching in the Salt Lake region. Currently drumming and section leader at the University of Utah Drumline. I've drummed professionally in groups such as the Seattle Cascades and Weber State Indoor Percussion. I've played in many rock and metal bands in the last decade and also have a track featured with the famous drummer Luke Holland. I've taught high school percussion. I can teach anywhere from beginning to well-advanced drumming. Ranging anywhere from classical symphonic to marching drums to heavy metal drum set. You name it, I can help.

On a side note, drumming is something that never came easy to me. The first 6 years of my drumming career was spent trying to catch up to my peers and getting cut from auditions. I believe this makes me a really good teacher due to the fact ...

About Christian
Drumming is absolutely amazing. Nothing gets me more excited than when I see my students learn. I make a pretty good income outside of teaching lessons. But, I continue simply because I love doing it.
