I had the fantastic pleasure of studying djembe rhythms with Bob and absolutely loved it. His enthusiasm and teaching style worked for me achieving the goal of developing my skills with rolls and solo riffs. I found greater confidence and direction on strengthening what skills I had . Sad our schedules and distance prevent us from continuing.
Mr. J. was my band teacher for several years and there are few people I have met that are as enthusiastic, passionate, and knowledgeable about music as he is. He always took the time to make sure each student was getting the help they needed and that they enjoyed themselves in the process. With Mr. J. as your instructor you will not only be learning from one of the best out there, but you'll be sure to have a great time while doing it!
I am a former band student of Mr. J and loved being in his class. I believe every student has a memorable teacher and he would be mine! He was lots of fun, very passionate about what he does & always had us laughing until it was go time! He treated us as musicians, not just students. You're sure to love him.
Mr. J is an excellent music teacher! I am a former student and found his teaching style to be encouraging, fun, and highly skilled. You’ll build both technique and artistry in a safe and encouraging environment. Take a lesson and you’ll be a lifelong fan too!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
