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.

Dani D

Instruments:

Drums have always been the biggest passion in my life. This incredible instrument holds endless musical and rhythmic possibilities which have always fascinated me. In 2011, I graduated with honors from the New Engalnd Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance.  I've had the honor of playing at some of New York's most well known venues as well as international festivals such as the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat.   

Josh Z

Instruments:

Hello! I am an energetic and driven teacher who loves sharing his knowledge of music with others! Drums are my passion, and I'm lucky enough to say that they're my profession as well! I attended the University of Michigan as a percussion performance major, and then moved to NYC because, let's be honest, there is no better place in the entire world for musicians! I offer all of my students an opportunity to play with an actively gigging teacher; someone who knows the inner workings of what it takes to make it as a musician. I also have extensive knowledge of NYSSMA and the all-regional ensembles that you can be playing with! Please feel free to peruse the rest of my page. I look forward to working with you!

Matt N

Instruments:

I am a young and passionate percussionist who loves being involved in music performance and education. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from LIU Post in 2013. I have had many great performance opportunities that include two performances in Carnegie Hall and other smaller venues around the country. My goal is to teach students of any age to appreciate music as well as to experience the feeling and passion of music.

Bruno E

Instruments:

I am an Argentinian born, Brazilian raised drummer/percussionist based in Brooklyn since 2011. I spent the previous three years studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I've been teaching since 2005, and it's one of my favorite things to do. The feeling of passing your knowledge along to someone else and see them become better musicians is very satisfying to me. I also work on Broadway, off-Broadway and with several artists as a touring/recording musician.

More Information About Music Lessons

An education in music carries over to all other aspects of life. Not only do students learn music, and how to appreciate all types of music, but music lessons can help to improve academics. Music students tend to score higher in science, math, and english/language skills tests.
Students taking lessons will have the chance to share their new found skills with family and friends at one of our various recital locations. Performing for a live audience enhances the student's excitement and joy for playing. Performers include a wide range of Musika's students from beginners to advanced, and ages 4 thru adult.
In home drum lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills. In home lessons are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. Lessons are taught once a week and significant progress can be made in a short time. Our teachers will suggest that students practice every day for the best results.
Your trial lesson will be a chance to meet the teacher, ensure student/teacher compatibility, and for the teacher to evaluate the students current level in order to create a custom lesson plan. We have a satisfaction gaurantee for all students - if for any reason you are not happy with the teacher after the introductory lesson it will be no charge and we can find a different instructor for you.
We value the safety of our students, and want to give you peace of mind during the process of finding a new music teacher. Musika conducts background checks on every teacher by using Intellicorp.net, a leading provider of screening and background check processes.
