John Cutrone is offering Drum lessons and Ensemble playing classes for all instruments. John draws from his professional playing
experience to communicate and strengthen important musical concepts. John has also created a series of play-a-long CD's and
charts to help learn reading and playing of many musical styles. The drum lessons include the use of an Apple computer to
give the students a sense of playing with other musicians. John teaches privately in Norwalk and Ridgefield Connecticut. Private
lessons are done on a weekly basis. It is also possible to contact John about purchasing play-a-long CD's through the mail.
