I have taught drum instruction and Jazz ensemble at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music for 20 years. In addition I developed and implemented elementary music programs for K-5 thru 4th grade for schools in the NY vicinity. Upon moving to the Milwaukee area I have taught private and group instruction for the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, Elementary Music K-5 thru 8th grade at St. Josaphats school, Music Therapy and intergenerational activities at the Lutheran Home, private studio and now Musika.
Every student is unique. I have taught beginners up to working professionals. Some students request a certain plan of study and I can easily adapt to their needs. As I have mentioned earlier I have played in almost every kind of musical setting. Stylisticly it does not matter what a student may want to focus on. I can help and teach my students to reach their goals. For beginning students I try to establish a good foundation in reading, technique and musical application. I generally use books, recordings, videos, personal handouts and personal demonstration as well as piano accompaniment at my home studio.
A 1/2 hour or 45 min. lesson would consist of
Reading rhythmic notation for the snare or drum set.
Techigue and co-ordination excersizes.
Application to a musical situation. (accompaniment or Improvise)
Excellent. Patient and fun. Great pacing.
Hard to make an accurate review after just a couple lessons. Seems well prepared and versed in his instrument. Good social skills with young children. Allowed me to come in after coming in late for a lesson. Looking forward to future lessons with him.
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
