Some Quotes and Testimonials
... because even a virtuoso seeks clarification on refining their skills. Quote "I dig your playing big time and wanted to see if you do any on-line lessons or Skype. I am trying to get my single stroke up and it is around 107 with or without
Moeller but past that it is a strain. I am the guy that played with Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters. I have good chops but need to hit the next level and you are there. Dig your
big band drumming man lots of fire. " - Mike Clark - (Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Tony Bennett, etc)

Quote "Jacob, you've got GREAT hands!!! ...hands from hell...!"
Jim Chapin - (20th century's most influential drum set educator)
"It's been a little over 2 years that I have been taking lessons with Jacob Kaye. I am so excited about my development, I wish I had met him 10 years ago! My technique, reading
and independence has dramatically improved. Jacob is passionate about teaching drums with the goal of taking his students to highest level. The only limitation is the student's
desire and the availability of practice time. My goal is to play all the styles of music from Rock to Jazz , and with Jacob I'm definitely on my way." Roger D.
"Studying with Jacob has been a rewarding experience in many regards. Through his teaching, I have been able to deconstruct and rebuild my playing habits, using proper
technique and placing emphasis on being confident and relaxed in my approach. He provides constructive feedback which really facilitates the learning process, and is genuinely
interested in developing a lesson plan to enable you to reach your personal goals, whatever they may be. Highly recommended for those who wish to take their drumming to the
next level and beyond." - Sean J. Ph.D. candidate
"Jacob is an excellent teacher, whose passion and knowledge over the last two years has taken me from basic drum concepts all the way to advanced studies in the Moeller
method. His instruction provides solid fundamentals in drumming; from reading and coordinated independence to improving your "chops". It's always kept fun though with the
application of these fundamentals to many different music styles such as rock, jazz, Latin, or anything else you would want to try. With Jacob's instruction, along with hard work
and practice, I have grown in leaps and bounds as a drummer." Matthew G. Ph.D.
