About Me

Music is my life and air. I started playing the drums when I was 12 years old. I played in every band and music ensemble I could throughout junior high, high school, and college. I have played in bands outside of school with music styles ranging from Rock, Punk, Hardcore, Metal, and Hip Hop. Since 2008, I have been teaching private drum set lessons and marching percussion to students of all ages and backgrounds, including Special Needs.

Recently, I attended the University of Texas at Arlington where I furthered my education in music teaching, music theory, performance, and percussion. I am also an experienced Djembe and Didgeridoo performer. Teaching and encouraging others in music comes naturally to me, and my degree in Music Business supports knowing how to prepare lessons and curriculum so students succeed.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love what I do and want my students to be excited not only to take lessons with me, but excited to go home and practice to further their skills as well. My lessons are focused and adaptable to the needs of each student. I have a wide range of teaching materials, equipment, and a personal library of method books for students to view and use. I do expect and encourage my students to practice at least 5 minutes a day. You will be amazed at how effective this is and how 5 minutes usually turns into 30 minutes of solid enjoyable practice.

About Me

Hey guys, my name is Gerson born and raised in Irving, TX. I am from the DFW area. I was introduce to drums at a very young age in my early pre-teen life. I've been playing drums for over eight years right now. I grew up playing at my church and seeing myself grow there. As the years gone by I was introduce to a great global drummer in the Christian market name Keith Banks. Were I went to learn more about drums at Christ For The Nations Institute. Then after that I played and travel with many worship bands around the DFW area and around the US. After that I went to study music theory and jazz, at North Lake College were it help me grow even more as musician. I was thought by a great jazz drummer name Gene Glover who played in the 1 o-clock bad at North Texas and many more jazz artist. Right now I am playing drums at my home church Iglesia Envagelica Bethel in Irving TX, and currently touring and playing drums for Denis Campos.

I have a vision where I see my student take his drumming to a level where he can never imagine. I am a very laid back person, I never want to pressure a student or make them feel uncomfortable at any time. The curriculum that I use includes basic drums notations and time signatures which is by Mark Wessels A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum. If the student practices consistently they will understand how drums can relate to the music learning how to keep time and be a great pocket drummer, and develop their foot speed and hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio Lessons are in the garage which includes carpet, recording studio, drums, bass, guitars, mics, and seating. No pets. Parking on the side or street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have a metronome a drum set, sticks, practice pad and a notebook. I usually bring my sticks and sometimes cymbals if they don't have any. The student needs to provide a full drum kit if he or she does not want to use a practice pad.

*** Specialties ***
I like to get connected with the student make him feel comfortable. The styles that I teach is in Latin jazz. Progressive and contemporary also funk and gospel.

Emily D. Denton, TX

About Me

I have been playing percussion since I was 11 years old. I played on drumline in high school, and minored in music at Southern Virginia University, where I just graduated from last May.

While in college I had a teaching internship, where I taught both the Middle and High School Percussion in Buena Vista, Virginia.

I believe that the most important parts of playing percussion are learning to read music and having fun! Lessons with me will begin with the basics of reading music, and your skills will only get better from there!

Aside from music, I love fishing, laughing, and Virginia. I love to teach those who want to learn.
