Jacob C.

Gibbsboro, NJ

About jacob

The first time I played a drum set was in 3rd grade music class. I was hooked. I now love the feeling of getting a piece of music, scratching through it a few times, making mistakes, fixing mistakes, rehearsing, rehearsing more, then playing it on stage for a stale audience that ends screaming for an encore.

In Elementary School I experienced 2 types of music lessons.
#1 Lessons that were too structured and boring because students were not able to have success at each lesson. The focus was on the structure vs. enjoyment.
#2 Lessons that were very fun and challenging to work towards
because students could see progress each week.
From that experience I am very confident that my enthusiasm towards learning percussion will be challenging and rewarding.

My music career has taken me anywhere from small church venues to theater orchestras including:
-Kensington Community Church (Troy, MI)
-The Rochester College Concert Band (Rochester, MI)
-The Box Theatre (Mt. Clemens, MI)
-Hope Community Church (Mt. Laurel, NJ)
-Liberti Church (Center City Philadelphia)
-Epic Church (Center City Philadelphia)

*** Lesson Details ***
You will soon learn that I am reliable, organized and high energy. Lessons are organized but flexible just like any good drummer.

Objectives:
#1 You will be on the fast track in school music programs. (You will do better in other classes as well)
#2 You will learn to be self-disciplined with practice. (You will have more confidence in challenging situations)
#3 You will be more confident in your ability, musical and non-musical.

Typical Lessons:
-We will review the previous lesson to measure progress and make any corrections necessary.
-New and challenging material will be offered with instructor help.
-Students will take the new material home to practice.

Practice:
I know that the best students we turn out are the students who practice the most. 99% of the learning comes through practice. No one learned to walk in 5 minutes, just like no one learns music in 5 minutes. Practice and mistakes are the difference between average and unbelievably good. If you want to be good the time spent in the lesson is just the recipe. You (student) are the one who makes it happen through regular practice. I remember hating practice sometimes when I was a kid. Practice should be fun. Focused practice should be really challenging and really fun. The feeling of satisfaction going from not being able to play something to learning it and nailing it is the best! This only comes through practice.

Depending on level after basic lessons (1-7 months) students will be able to keep simple time, have basic ability to use all tools in their drum kit and be able to include simple fills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio specifically for drumming, an electronic drum set, an acoustic set, amps, recording equipment, seating for parents with video feed so that you can check in during lessons.

Students should be able to practice anywhere anytime. They don't need fancy equipment, just willingness to practice. I can help you get creative!

*** Travel Equipment ***
To be determined based on the student's needs and location.

*** Specialties ***
On a typical day you will catch me listening to and playing songs by:

Bastille, Imagine Dragons, Paramore, Lorde, RHCP, Adele, Hillsong, Coldplay, U2, Zac Brown Band, Cream, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Journey, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, the Stones, Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Earth, Wind, Fire; ZZ Top, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Diamond Rio, Boston, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, The 4 Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Bob Marley, etc.

Jeffrey W.

Haddon Heights, NJ

About Jeffrey

My background is as a classically trained singer and voice teacher. I have studied with numerous leading voice teachers and singers in the United States. I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Florida State University in Voice Performance and I studied for my Doctorate in Musical Arts in Vocal Pedagogy from The University of Miami. My education has provided me a great understanding of how the voice functions correctly and how to relate this to any level of student, from completely inexperienced singers to advanced singers. My teaching style focuses on making sure that the different p
arts of the voice are working correctly then focusing on the coordination of the entire system working together. Whether you are preparing for an important singing engagement or just trying to improve your skills, I would love to help you achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every voice lesson will consist of equal time instruction through vocal exercises and instruction through song. I have a very laid-back and fun approach to singing and teaching. I feel that the studio should be an enjoyable place and the voice lesson should be a time of the week to which the student looks forward. During the first lesson the student and I will set achievable goals in achievable time spans specific to the level and skill of the singer. I will give the student all the tools to achieve their goals, including weekly skill and muscle training exercises tailored to the student's needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In home studio, Baby Grand Piano, Guitar, Microphone and amplifier, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need a piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice, using the pricipals of natural acoustics and comfortability in vocal production. Creating a resonance that is natural, beautiful, and individual to each singer.

Jeffrey rocks! I'm 59 and after a lifetime of not properly singing, I'm finally learning how to correctly sing and protect my instrument. It has been about three months and I've improved exponentially. Jeffrey accepts you at whatever level you are at and brings you along from there. He is knowledgable, patient, and always positive!

Excellent teacher! I couldn't be more elated with my decision in choosing Jeffrey for my singing instructor. Not only does he possess highly impressive credentials but he has an amazing way of combining his highly trained teaching ability with his wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable, confidant and at ease. Each week I am amazed at his teaching technique, his engaging personality and his obvious eagerness in helping you achieve your goals. Have had a couple of vocal coaches in the past however Jeffrey is by far the most outstanding teacher I've had and feel privileged to have found him. Thank you, Jeffrey!

John R.

Mount Laurel, NJ

About John

My name is John. I am a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where I received a Bachelors of Music Performance on the guitar. I have moved back to South Jersey, and am looking for students.
My areas of expertise lie in metal/rock/progressive playing, songwriting and arranging. I also feel at home in the classical realm as far as orchestration and arranging go. I can teach various techniques on the guitar (including the fore mentioned styles) along with funk, blues, jazz, alternate picking, sweep picking, legato playing, hybrid picking, harmonizing, chord melody, odd meter, theory,
and ear training as well as all things beginner.
I am also proficient as a vocalist, drummer/percussionist, bassist, and can find my way around a piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson is what you make of it. Every student (and every teacher) is different. I can be very easy-going and laid back, or I can be extremely stern and strict. It all depends on the personality of the student, how seriously he/she takes music, and how much/how fast he/she is willing to learn. Some students prefer to take things slow and let material sink in (which I recommend), while others like to go through material fast and "jump around". The choice is yours, and I will do my best to adapt. I do, however believe one should never move forward until a strong foundation is built upon the current topic of education. First you crawl, then walk, then jog, THEN run.
i will use Musicians Institute curriculum as reference material along with any other books I have which pertain to the knowledge you seek.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement:Couple of amps, PA, couple of guitars, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have guitars (electric,acoustic,and bass), cables, amps, metronome, tuner, music stands, (effects pedals, PA, mics, drums, hand percussion and piano if necessary). Student would need his or her own guitar and cable, and notebook w/ manuscript paper along with whatever else they may feel they need.(Tuner,etc.)

*** Specialties ***
Although I play many styles, I specialize in rock/metal/progressive styles as well as classical, although my classical technique could be considered more of a hybrid or a bit unorthodox in comparison to what is typically expected. Developing the ear as an all around reference to back up all other musical knowledge is my strongest method. I believe transcription helps reading immensely and putting theory in a musical context rather than just leaving it on paper helps the knowledge come to life. I exploit the origin of all things so that a strong foundation is built. If one knows where something comes from, then one can always build upon or subtract however they wish while still having a clear understanding of their options. In this case of course, we are dealing with the endless options and possibilities of music!

About Philip

I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in music production and engineering. I am a keyboardist of more than 20 years, and I love being able to impart the gift of music to others, whether that involves piano technique, music theory, or recording lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have one philosophy with regard to my lessons: on the whole, they must be enjoyable. If that's not there, the motivation will not be there. While there's work involved in learning music, I strive to focus on songs my students are interested in and supplement that with the necessary practicing tec
hniques.

Philip is an excellent teacher--he communicates well, is very professional, friendly, patient with children, and has excellent credentials. He teaches my granddaughter, who can be a little chatterbox, but Philip handles her very well. I would highly recommend him for anyone.

Brian M.

Marlton, NJ

About Brian

Hey! My name is Brian and I teach guitar, bass guitar, and music theory out of Duke's Bike Music Studio in Marlton, NJ. A little about myself, I'm 33, married and have two kids. I've been playing guitar and bass since I was 12 and professionally teaching music since 2008. Aside from playing in various bands in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, I'm a guitarist, upright bassist, and vocalist in the 553rd Air National Guard Band of the Northeast. I'm also the Music Director for the 553rd's popular music ensemble. I studied music and music education at Camden County College and Berklee Col
lege of Music.
Over the years, I've developed a method of teaching that uses songs my students like as the example for learning technique and music theory. My students are of all ages and range from never-played-a-note to gigging musicians looking to change things up a bit. Duke's Bike Music Studio is conveniently located near the Promenade shopping center. My rates are competitive and my schedule is flexible. Hit me up and we can get you scheduled right away.
Thanks!

Brian is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. I have gone through some challenging phases while learning basic music theory and technical skills on bass guitar, and Brian has been instrumental (see what I did there?) in encouraging me through those bumps in the road. Learning to read and perform music can sometimes seem daunting, but he's really great at breaking down the information into fun exercises and simple explanations. You can tell he really enjoys what he does.

I decided to pick up the guitar in my 30s and soon realized I was in over my head. I spent a few hours with Brian and he has been tremendous in helping me progress. He is a personable guy and has a knack for explaining instructions and techniques clearly. He gives a ton of feedback and has an eye/ear for correcting issues. Also, Brian makes music theory very approachable which has given me a greater appreciation and understanding of the complexities of music. I highly reccomend.

Brian is amazing. He is wonderfully patient with my 10 year old son and knows how to get thru to younger students and communicate with them etc. We are very proud of our son's progress towards being a really great guitar player and it's because of Brian's patience, ability to communicate as well as his knowledge and ability to teach. His rates are very affordable and he's quite flexible with our family's ever changing schedule as we are super busy
