Featured Teachers

Aaron L

Instruments:

Hi my name is Aaron - I have been teaching privately for 7 years. I am 30 years old and love bringing the joy of music into peoples homes.

Featured Teachers

Michael W

Instruments:

I am a jazz musician and composer at heart. The woodwinds (saxophone, flute, clarinet and ewi (Electronic Wind Instrument)) will always be my main performing instruments. Although my journey into composition and teaching has given me practical experience on many other instruments as well, so that I am a competent player and teacher for beginner and intermediate students on piano, guitar and electric bass. Sharing music with others, with an audience or with an eager student, is a magical and rewarding experience that I cherish. I’m happy to say that teaching and performing music has taken me all over the world.

Noel B

Instruments:

Hello everyone and welcome!   My name is Noel Brennan and I am a drummer living and working in New York City. I have been fortunate to perform with jazz legends such as John Scofield, Pascal Niggenkemper, Andy Milne, Dave Pietro, Dave Douglas and the list continues.  These shows were at many first rate jazz clubs including:  Blue Note, The Jazz Gallery, The Stone, The Tea Lounge, Tomi Jazz, Cornelia St. Cafe, The Falcon, Twins Jazz, Trumpets Jazz and many others.  While receiving my Masters degree at NYU, I was also employed as an adjunct music faculty member.   In 2012 I was selected as one of Half Note Records musicians in the "Promising Artist Series."  The award included responsibilities such as giving concerts and leading clinics.   My drumming education began with Les Harris Jr., a long time student of the legendary educator/player Alan Dawson.  I have also studied with drumming greats Jeff Ballard, Billy Drummond, Ari Hoenig and Tony Moreno.   In 2011, I was accepted as a disciple of tabla maestro Anindo Chatterjee.  This has also been an amazing opportunity.  Chatterjee spends half the year residing and teaching in NYC.  Just three blocks away, I am able to spend ample time learning from him.  In the winter of 2013, I spent several months in India living the music.  This included daily talim (lessons) from Gurujee as well as many all night concerts and sessions with local musicians.   My study of tabla began in 2008 with Amos Libby of Portland, Maine.  He is a talented teacher who introduced me to Hindustani/Carnatic music.  I also traveled to India in 2010 to study with Amos's Guru, Vidwan Vasudeb Rao.  While in Bangalore, I studied mridangam and experienced life in India for the first time.      Another interest of mine has been listening to and studying electronic music.  Turntableism was a large influence.  I have turntables and a sampler and have been working with them for years.  It has been a great inspiration to follow in the footsteps of DJs including DJ Craze, DJ Shadow, Mix Master Mike and Q-bert.

David M

Instruments:

I have been taught guitar by ten different teachers and understand a wide variety of styles as a result. I am two semesters away from graduating William Paterson University with a Music Studies degree, primarily focused in music theory. Though I have spent many hours working very hard at my instrument, I consider myself primarily a songwriter and producer and spend much of my time writing songs for my band or engineering and producing albums for other artists. I personally believe that looking at music of any genre from this perspective allows me to be a more effective teacher.
