Drums:
One of my favorite instruments to teach , and definitely a fun instrument to learn, is the full Drum Set. You will love my method as it is very easy to follow. Starting with very basics of learning rhythms, within the first two lessons you will be able to play beats with a band! Study with me for over twenty years if you like and you will learn all styles of beats, polyrhythms and more.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

My music lessons are fun and educational. Students are busy and dealing with life. Music should not be another thing you "get through". Whether you're young and dealing with multiple subjects in school or you're an adult with a job and responsibilities, music should be the place to escape all of that. I want to teach you whatever you would like to learn and develop a curriculum based on your own wants.

Want to learn songs from your favorite bands? Great! Let's do that!

Want to prepare for college auditions to become a music major? I can help you with that!

Want to play music with your friends and be a part of a cool band? I've been there and done that, and can help you with that too.

Whatever your reason for playing music, whether its for fun or scholarships or auditions or whatever, music should be FUN! I want to help you with that.

There are materials like "Stick Control" and "Survival Guide for the Modern Drummer" but at the end of the day, I want to help you play music, ...

About Kevin

Hi there! I've been drumming for 14 years and teaching for 6 years! I've taught elementary students through college age and beyond. I love seeing my students grow and learn and pursue music from a place of interest, passion, and enjoyment! Music has given me so many opportunities like traveling

He is very knowledgeable and you can tell he works with kids. My daughter looks forward to lessons and can see big improvement each week. He is always asking about her current music goals and upcoming auditions. One of her goals was to make jazz band and she did, playing the trap set on a song at the winter concert.

"Murray Piper is an excellent, excellent music teacher for kids (and adults too). Unlike some of my past music teachers, who's instrument skills far exceed their ability to teach, Murray is an excellent communicator, super engaging, and keeps lessons really fun. My 7 year old Son is receiving drum lessons from Mr. Piper, and loves interacting with him. Murray is also happy to adjust his teaching style to suit the personality of his students. Most importantly as a Father, Murray is kind, upbeat, and professional with every member of my family, including my two children who aren't (yet) receiving music lessons. Thank you Murray! You are truly excellent at what you do."
