If you want to really rock on the drums I can get you started. I have MANY years of playing, performing, and teaching experience. Want to learn to play your favorite songs? And hopefully develope your own style! Let's rock!

About Thomas

I have been playing drums for over 47 years. For 16 years I played and performed professionally with my band Black Widow USA. We toured the US several times in support of our two internationally released CDs. For about 30 years of my time behind a drum set I had given drum lessons on and off. But b

This is our first Drum instructor and we are thrilled with Thomas. He is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about teaching. His approach is positive in nature, meeting the student where they are at, takes their interest as the lead, and starts teaching there. My 11 year old son really likes him too! We go to our 4th lesson this afternoon.

These lessons were great. Regarding drums, I was an absolute beginner, and Tommy's lessons turned out to be an excellent jump-start. I used to play keyboards and guitars before, and I enjoy picking up by ear rather than reading notation, so I really liked informal and 'non-notational' way the lessons went. There was no hard notation drill, and yet Tommy had covered most rudiments, basic techniques, and patterns needed to rock in about 10 lessons. I'd recommend this for anyone who doesn't know how to hold sticks but want to get introduced into rock drumming.

Music theory is a joy to teach! Let me guide you. Within the first few lessons, you'll know terminology and basics such as rhythm and note reading, and as time goes on you'll be able to understand chords, structure and more. I typically use method books combined with traditional repertoire.

***At the lesson***

During the lesson, students will begin with the material they have completed throughout the week. Corrections may be made. Students may have to repeat assignments until they are done satisfactorily - this is common. Then, writing assignments will be graded. Online students will submit writing assignments online through e-mail prior to the lesson, and will be given their grades at the lesson. ...

I am about retired and decided to take piano lesson as a hobby last year. I knew nothing about playing piano and music theory. I was lucky to find Doniell as my piano teacher. She is very patient with me for not knowing anything and explains everything I need to know for that day’s lesson. She is also very flexible to work with me with my work and trip schedules. I have been with her for one year and take half hour lesson each week except when I was out of town, now I am able to play many songs and very happy with my good progress. I definitely recommended her to anyone who is interested in learning piano lessons. You will get satisfactions.

Our daughter is taking lessons with Doniell and after every lesson is thrilled to share her experiences. Doniell has been exceedingly accomodating of our schedule, making it absolutely pleasant to work with her. We are a homeschool family and she offered time outside of evening hours. We had several illnesses and issues with travel during the snow this past winter and she has always been understanding and patient with rescheduling. Our daughter is very enthusiastic about piano and many things in life, we are thankful we have Doniell to guide her as she continues to develop a passion for music.

I've taken guitar lessons from a few teachers and Dan is the best fit I've ever had. He is very patient and does a fantastic job of tailoring lessons to individual needs. He clearly loves to play music and is very thoughtful about how he shares this knowledge in his lessons. He never fails to encourage me as a guitar player and reinforces a 'can do' attitude. His positive and calm demeanor also make for a fantastic instructor. Thank you, Dan.

"I attribute my singing career to Michele. She was my very first singing teacher. She pointed me in the right direction when I got my first choir solo as a teenager in church and remained as a member to help support me several years later when I became the director of that same choir. She created our our former a Capella group where I did my first TV voice performances (and my first recorded album) and she's responsible for creating a musical environment that inspired me to attend conservatory and graduate with a degree in music.

"Jennifer was my son's piano teacher for over 2 years. She started working with my son when he was 7 and I could have not asked for a better teacher for him. She interacted with him exceptionally well and my son simply adored her. Jennifer has a natural talent in teaching especially due to seeing how much my son has excelled with his piano skills over the years. He was well prepared and rocked all of his recitals due to Jennifer's dedication to him. She was always on time and showed up when expected. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a teacher to all. She is super friendly and has a welcoming demeanor about her. I would definitely rate her one of the best instructors ever!"

"I am a high school student who has been taking trombone lessons for four years, and I have been playing for six years. I was having trouble on this difficult piece that had a wide range of notes, and I needed help with this because I had an upcoming state competition. Eventually, it was recommended to me to find a professional who taught at a collegiate level, and that was when I went online and found Mr. Gallo. I decided to sign up with him for six lessons just to see what I needed to work, but when I started taking lessons with him, I realized how much improvement I needed to make on my trombone. He had denoted instantly in my first lesson what I was doing wrong. Thanks to Mr. Gallo's phenomenal teaching, I have embraced a more acute and accurate practice routine as well as a better embrasure which has assisted me in unlocking a higher range on my trombone than I have ever reached before. The practice technicalities he has taught me that have become very advantageous to me, and will be easily instituted in more complicated pieces in the future."
