To anyone thinking of taking Drum Lessons in central NJ, I started playing drums and taking a serious interest in music around 7th grade. I was taking lessons through a local facility which, to say the least, skipped much of what was necessary to have a good technical foundation. Up until high school I was running on talent, and miserable reading ability from my lessons. I met someone who was taking lessons with Scott and saw how quickly they improved, which, to be honest, scared the daylights out of me! I got Scott's information, and proceeded to begin private lessons with him immediately! The lessons focused on immensely important details of a musical life, with intense focus on mental and physical relaxation, which is quintessential to technical facility on the instrument. Scott taught me sensitivity, and musicality. He taught me about the instrument itself, and about the greatest players of all time, who would become my greatest inspirations in life. At this point, I am a Jazz and African-American Music Performance Major at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Scott's preparation has invested in me a strong foundation to pursue my musical career to this higher level, as well as given me the confidence to reach outside the university's walls and take on many gigs around the area. I'm busy enough to not have to work while in school, playing drums is my occupation at present, and I am blessed to have these opportunities, all of which I owe to my dear mentor, and friend, Scott Strunk. -Alan Korzin
