Scott Magann – Public School Teacher and
Customer of the Academy of Drums
Expertise. Commitment. Respect. Dedication. Caring. These are words that come
to mind when I think of The Academy of Drums. The Academy of Drums is a truly
unique school, where the art of drumming and music making is joyfully shared
and where the commitment to excellence is clearly evident and abundant. I am
a student of Neil Garthly and also a music educator in the NJ public school
system. I marvel at the level of instruction offered at the Academy of Drums.
Every area of music education that an aspiring drummer needs is more than competently
and thoroughly addressed. Excellent teaching doesn't stop at the studio door.
It has a ripple effect. Neil's extraordinary teaching skills, support, guidance,
and generosity have been instrumental in helping me bring the joy of rhythm
and drumming to over 150 delighted fourth, fifth and sixth grade school children
this year! I have great respect for Neil and the fruition of his vision. The
Academy of Drums is a great school!
Academy’s innovative method of monitoring student progress both motivates
students and insures a well-rounded education in all aspects of percussion.
Academy will provide a safe, personal, helpful, and enjoyable learning environment,
where the student can experience the fun of drumming at their own pace. We
will teach any style of music, while using modern teaching methods, personalized
exercises, current songs and a positive reinforcement to help the student obtain
their drumming goals and dreams.
