Music education in Westchester will never be the same again!

A little background. A BIG change. 


There is no shortage of music schools in Westchester, NY. With a thriving community for the arts, the study of music is serious business. When I started teaching privately in Westchester, parents would seek me out for geniune high quality drum, percussion, and mallet keyboard percussion instruction. They wanted to work with a professional musician in a flexible scheduling environment. Over time word slowly spread about my world class education and instruction. As my client base grew, we started an ensemble program and I began providing high quality instruments to clients as well. We also added several pivotal online offerings. I am extremely proud to provide a much needed service to the community. The Simon Boyar School of Drums and Percussion is an absolute game changer for music education in Westchester, NY!
