Whether you're an aspiring pro or just want to be able to play along to your favorite records... We will make it happen.You have to do the work, but I can guide you in the right direction. There's a lot of trial and error involved in learning any craft but with the right guidance, the amount of error is kept to a minimum, the learning process will be more effective and quicker, and much more enjoyable. I've taught students of ages ranging from 5 to 65. It's never too late, and you're never too old. One great memory I have is a retired gentleman who, at age 65, wanted to make his life-long dream of playing in a wedding band come true. He had owned drums for years, but never took a lesson in his life and could barely hold a simple beat. Friends of his had a working wedding band and needed a new drummer. They gave him 6 months to get to a level where he could keep up, and we made it happen! Many of my students have gone on to become succesful musicians, playing with bands and touring internationally. Many others simply play for fun, and are enjoying being able to play along to their favorite songs and jam with friends. Apart from local students, I have extensive experience in offering intensive courses for students visiting from abroad. Two hours a day for a week, an hour every other day for a month... we'll make it happen! My studio is an easy 45-minute train ride from Manhattan. I take pride in offering quality drum lessons at very affordable rates. Especially in today's economy, I don't believe in the rates some drum/music schools charge. I don't have any extra overhead, since my studio is at my home. This also makes scheduling extremely flexible for me. An introductory lessons is only $20. After that, there are a variety of options for (bi-)weekly lessons (30, 45 or 60 minutes). Email me below to schedule your introductory lesson, or with any questions you may have! I'm always more than happy to help visiting foreign students finding affordable accomodation (hotels) and assisting with any other aspects of visiting the New York City area.
