Percussion:
There are a whole list of percussion instruments and I can teach you anyone you would like to learn. Each instrument has it's own unique characteristics and can be sounded by being struck or scraped by a beater, struck, scraped or rubbed by hand; or struck against another similar instrument. The percussion family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments. Some of the instruments are timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, and tambourine. Whichever percussive instrument you choose I have the ability to teach it to you.

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

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 lessons revolve around drum set and concert snare drum technique and musicianship. I aim to make sure that my students have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of percussion (rudiments, sight-reading, etc.), while simultaneously exposing them to the vast world of rhythmic styles and grooves. These span from classical snare repertoire to jazz, funk, rock, soul, and Latin styles. I design my curriculum around each student's individual needs, in order that our lessons may serve a practical purpose onstage.

About Dominic

I am a multi-genre drummer/percussionist who is currently a student at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. Trained in classical piano from the age of 6, I took up the drums at age 11, with an emphasis on jazz drumming. Since then, I have performed at venues such as the DC Jazz Fes

I pretty much teach all common areas of percussion. These include timpani, drum set, marching percussion, mallet percussion, concert percussion, and some world percussion.

Alex is Very knowledgeable. He was great with my 13-year-old daughter. She learns a lot from him and really enjoys working with him. He is very good teacher and very patient. I like the fact that he gives her specific homework to work on. I look forward to working with him for a long time.

I've been teaching piano, guitar, bass, drums, and composition for 15 years. Whether my students go on to become professionals or continue with music as a hobby, my goal is to develop a deep foundation of fluency and love for music. I specialize in classical repertoire and composition, but love to dive deep into whatever style my students want to explore.

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over ten years and teaching for about seven. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. In addition to drum kit, I can play and teach hand drums (djembe and conga) in contemporary or traditional African, Latin, American styles. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels.

David gets it. He understands what your needs are and designs personalized exercises in order to help you reach those goals! He challenges me. I want to know what things I am doing wrong and understand the mechanics behind my errors and the tactics in order to get better. David is good at expressing those things in order to help you understand your voice and the different factors that are affecting your voice. He is extremely capable and very flexible. For this reason, I definitely recommend him as an instructor for anyone that is searching for a good vocal instructor. Worth the $$.

"Good assessment of child's starting point. Wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Great introduction into drum kit (we called it drum set in my day). At that point, needed to slow down and give child more fundamental practice time to soak in the concepts before racing on."

"My 11 year old son lost his drum teacher, and we found TakeLessons online. The hardest part is choosing a teacher because many are all top notch 5-Star rated. I picked Tracy D. seemingly at random!

What a lucky draw it turned out to be. Tracy is a real pro, with a great personality. It took my son less than a few minutes before he was comfortable, having fun, and learning new things (he has 1 year experience).

I’ve been a part time musician for over 40 years, and I can tell you when I meet someone that is a true professional musician and the right person to teach my son. That is this exceptional woman."

"Mr. Piper came to Lake Charles, LA and DeRidder, LA for a FREE drum camp for kids. We went to both locations because that's unheard of in our city. He taught the kids:
*Different techniques
*How to play the drums with different genres of music
*Rudiments!!"

"My 9-year-old son, Luke, who is on the spectrum (PDD-NOS) studied with David for the better part of a year and the experience was terrific. In addition to being extremely communicative and reliable, David was kind and patient. David kept Luke focused and entertained while also inviting him to think about rhythm in ways that made sense to Luke's brain. We happily traveled from Inwood to "Downtown Brooklyn" for lessons because the level of instruction was that good and, I think, Luke's progress demonstrates that. Luke was bitten by the hockey bug, so we are taking a break from percussion right now, but I wouldn't hesitate to return to David's studio should time allow in the future."
