"My sons Thomas and Danny studied music at the School of Music and Drama in Little Silver for many years. They learned quite a bit about music and enjoyed their teachers very much. Now Danny has been accepted at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Troy, New York to study Aeronautical Engineering this Fall!
He also will continue in the music program for guitar and string classes. Thanks to our friends at the School of Music and Drama for my sons great start in music."
"I've been studying at the School of Music and Drama for the last seven years. When I came to the studio, I knew absolutely nothing about music. With the help of my instructor Jim Josselyn I just received a merit-based scholarship to the music program at Monmouth University.
My lessons have always been fun and informative; I've made great friends here as well, and I would just like to say thank you for the opportunity. And now I can share what I've learned with my students as a teacher here at the school!"
"I'm going into my fourth year of piano lessons at the School of Music and Drama. These lessons are enjoyable because I like different styles of music such as rock, blues, jazz and classical and my teacher has helped me learn them. Because of the RockBand program, I've been able to perform in ensembles that have performed at Victory Park and Monmouth Mall. Becoming prepared for these performances has helped me become prepared for things in my life such as sports events and tests at school. Thank You!"
"I have studied piano at the School of Music and Drama for eight years. I enjoy my lessons because I love to learn, and it makes me happy to know I am improving. I love reading music and learning my favorite songs. It also makes it easy when my teacher shows me how to place my hand properly. Thanks for teaching me!"
My children, Nate, Madelyn and Gabe, have enjoyed their lessons very much for the last eight years. They feel comfortable with their instructors and look forward to new lessons each week. Music lessons have helped expand their ability to learn, and they have learned to commit to something and work hard at it to improve the skills needed to get better. We enjoy the winter and spring recitals. It's great for the kids to get in front of people and perform, it really helps build their confidence. Thank you!
"My daughter Kat has studied guitar for four years at the School of Music and Drama. She has enjoyed her lessons immensely, and the one-on-one attention of her teacher has allowed her to excel musically. Her involvement at the studio has boosted her confidence in all aspects of life. She has developed leadership skills and holds the office of Vice President in her school's band, has been inducted into the TriM society, a music honors society, and assist's the school's band director in helping younger students with the basics of reading music. We attribute much of Kat's success to her lesson's at the School of Music and Drama, and her teacher's tutelage.
Thank you!!! - Mary Giblin
"I have studied piano and guitar for four years at the School of Music and Drama. I'm learning how to improvise and write music of my own, and I look forward to my lessons each week. I've played in the RockSchool band in the past, and now I'm leading a group of my own. Thanks for everything"
