I've been a self taught drummer for 23 years. I was frustrated that my left hand was never as strong as my right and felt like I was missing out on some fundamentals that would take my drumming to the next level. After the very first lesson with Gregg my playing changed for the better. Teaching me to drum in alignment with the drum set ergonomically shocked me how much better my technique became. I'd been on a slow rising plateau and now it feels like I'm scaling Mt. Everest. Gregg is a very positive, warm, informative and encouraging instructor. His professional experience gives him the credibility of a top teacher.
I came to Gregg thinking that I already knew how to play drums. Boy was I wrong! By the second lesson I realized that there was another entire world of drumming that I didnít even know existed. By the fourth lesson, every song I heard on the radio or TV suddenly took on a whole new dimension. My drumming has developed a groove and rich texture I only dreamed of before. Gregg is a great teacher; always positive, always encouraging. He never lets me rest on my laurels, building on what Iíve just learned and showing me an array of possibilities. His manner is modest and unassuming. One would be hard pressed to know that he is, and has been for a long time, a genuine "rock star". This has been the best investment I have made in my drumming since I bought my first pair of sticks!
Gregg Gerson's enthusiasm for music is infectious. I hold his philosophical approach to music as invaluable as his musical prowess which extends from it. He has enjoyed an extensive relationship with music and his graceful sustain has inspired me to pursue my own musical goals with similar dedication. This lesson has been of the most worth to me: the degree of a masterís ardor for teaching is only met by the willingness of a student to learn. With that said, Gregg will take any drummer, young and old, and usher them to their goals as long as they are willing to do the work."
I just wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude for Gregg Gerson. Gregg is the best drum instructor I have ever had, due to his high level of professionalism. He does not only instruct others, but he consistently applies his methods on stage. I started with Gregg just a few months ago as an average intermediate drummer. But through these lessons that I have had with him, it has changed my entire way of thinking. Now I am able to apply the linear method, which is essentially moving effortlessly over the drum set. His methods have vastly improved every area of my playing. I have even been able to apply these methods to many areas of my life. Now when my band lights up the stage at many of the top clubs in LA, it is Gregg that I have to thank for our success! So if you are looking to become the drummer you have always dreamed of, look no further than Gregg Gerson.
Working with Gregg has been a great experience. He has profound knowledge and skill in drumming and music in general. He understands groove, touch, and feel and strives to instill it in you. Being around him I get a sense of his unwavering work ethic, and after every lesson I am inspired. He looks at your playing style as an individual and gives you exercises that help break down your barriers. He teaches to focus and relax while you play, not just technical ability. But he gives you exercises that invoke technical ability and promote agile learning. The melodic style that Gregg teaches is by far the coolest style of drumming. Instead of just keeping the beat you are learning to sing with your kit!I cannot believe the improvement I have made since I began working with Gregg. I would recommend Gregg to drummers of all abilities."
Hey Y'all, Just wanted to give some praise for Gregg Gerson. Since I have been playing with Gregg, I have gained much needed confidence behind my drums. I am able to play with my band and have the precision and dexterity that is necessary to compilate some killer tunes, as well as have tons of fun since my drumming horizon has been broadened by Mr. Gerson. My timing has tightened, by riffs have expanded, and my fills sound super. This guy's the man, and if you are serious about your musical quest, he is your man.
You CAN be a better, funkier, more musical drummer than you've ever imagined; the key is taking lessons from Gregg. After my FIRST session with Gregg, my playing was completely transformed: my bandmates were blown away the very next time we rehearsed. As a teacher, Gregg's the perfect combination of Zen master and no-nonsense New Yorker. He'll help you develop your unique voice on the drums and get you playing with more confidence in virtually no time.
I am so grateful to have met Gregg. Not only is he an outstanding person, he is an unbelievable professional drummer. I have worked with Gregg for about two months, I've had eight lessons and it's making an impressive difference. He is teaching me how to "break out of the box." To achieve this he has taught me various poly-rhythms, working on odd time grooves and the extremely important triplet feel. I also have learned various rudiments overlaid by double bass patterns, which are very fun to play and sound very impressive. His guidance in what to practice is going to save me a lot of wasted time. Over all my timing is better, my left hand is stronger, I'm seeing new ways to improve old patterns and my fills are becoming extremely more dynamic. I absolutely recommend Gregg to any drummer who really wants to become more and break through their current thresholds.
Gregg Gerson and his applied drumming technique is by far the most compelling teaching style to date. His knowledge and philosophy on music and drums is amazing. Not only does Gregg show you how to unlock boundaries only limited to how hard you work, he teaches real time, real life techniques and education that can be used immediately no matter what your playing style.Gregg is so musically enhanced he can observe and mechanically break down your individual style and show you how to become the best player you can be through various exercises and playing techniques.The methods of Gregg's applied drumming has taken my playing level and musicality further in a few months than years of other education I have been involved with.He has shown me practice methods for power and stamina, introduced me to exercises to help me play "outside the box" and with plenty of "grease". He has taught me how to push my mind and ability to develop the skills necessary to play great drums. He is enthusiastic about teaching and wants you to learn. That displays a lot about his character which translates into his incredible ability to rip on the drum kit and many other musical instruments he plays very well. This gives such an advantage to students like myself who challenge themselves to find greatness. Gregg is the outlet. His knowledge is undeniable greatness for which I'm fortunate to learn from. Aside from also being down to earth and very cool, Gregg's personality and willingness to help you understand make him the perfect instructor. I'm lucky to be taught by such a talented musician and I'm honored to also call him a friend.
