I have performed and recorded with many artists including Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Patti Labelle and Larry Carlton. I specialize in drum set, school band, jazz band, auditions, and drumline. I focus on what the individual student wants from lessons (learning songs, preparing for auditions or to be in a band, technique, reading, etc).

Excellent teaching style! My son has learned so much in the past year, in how to master the drums, more than ever! Obviously, Murray loves what he does and is at the master level. My son gets so many compliments whenever he plays. Murray is just a caring, compassionate, and decent person.

Murray has been the Best Drum Teacher EVER! I have been through 4ish teachers and when I found Murray he helped me be able to play for my church! He will teach you multiple kinds of rhythms, beats, songs and grooves. And he has such a good attitude through every mistake I make! If you want a drum teacher who will teach you everything he can, and maybe some stuff he doesn't know, then Murray is the instructor for you!

Private Drum Teacher

I can't wait to share my knowledge and passion for the drums with you! I am a professional drummer who performs with different artists and band in New York City and Brooklyn. Every lesson, students will get 100% of my undivided attention as I strive to give each student the exact tools they need to succeed. Beginners will develop stick control & the skills and the coordination it takes to play the drums. More advanced students will enjoy exploring a diverse array of styles, improving reading and developing a posture and technique that will take them to the next level. I emphasis playing in a way that is healthy and comfortable for the hands and bodies. The exact objectives of lessons will also take into consideration the goals of the individual student.

I am a professional drummer, hand drummer, music producer and recording artist. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a degree in music education and percussion performance. I am a New York State Certified music educator with over 6 years of private and classroom teaching experience. A

"I was a bit nervous about taking lessons as I had not played drums in front of anyone before. My first lesson was surprisingly a very comfortable expereience and something that I would definitely recommend if you are on the fence. I have been playing for about a year and felt like I wasn't progressing with YouTube tutorials anymore. Max has really been helping to take me to a new skill level!"

"Murray is an exsquisite drum teacher. He teaches my son all of the fundamentals of playing the drums. He ensures that my son knows how to read music, and knows how to play all genres of music. His lessons are always fun and he encourages my son to have fun while playing, but to do so professionally as well. Murray makes sure that my son knows the different drum rudiments that he plays, such as, paradiddles/flamadiddles, so when speaks about a piece that he has played, he can sound educated and professional about his craft. Murray deposits fruitful information about how to conduct business, if you are planning to have a career in the music industry. Thank you for being a great teacher and influence to my child."
