I started playing music at the age of 3. Hailing from a long line of musicians, my first musical experiences were vocal performance & the drum set. In junior high, I expanded my skill set to the piano. My skills were honed & perfected in the Latin Jazz/Pop super-group ‘Soulsa Caliente’. I later organized my own multi-genre band and performed in various venues throughout the city of Houston, TX & southern regions of the U.S. My summer months were spent participating and teaching in the Diaz Music Institute’s Latin Jazz Workshop conducted annually by Jose Antonio Diaz, Horace Young, Noe Marmolejo & other great musical heavyweights. My diligence, focus, and perfectionism began to shine before I even graduated from high school. The most notable were: All State jazz drummer #1 ranking
I have been playing drums for 18 years, and have been teaching 8 years.
I have tons of energy during lessons that mixes well for the younger students.
For older students I have the chops to catch their attention.
My curriculum ranges on the needs of the student. I have everything from developing better grooves, more independence, chops, or simply learning how to play different styles.
My goal during my lessons is dependent on the student. Not only do I want to help achieve personal goals, but I too want to help give the gift of being able to develop personal style. I feel that as a teacher, when my student is capable of achieving their playing desire on their own, I have enabled them to be a life long self sufficient musician.
My teaching style is very informative and demonstrative. I love being able to view the problems the student is facing and create a lesson to help overcome those obstacles.
As a Musicians Institute graduate, I've learned from exceptional drummers in the Los Angeles music industry. I gained and learned many tricks of the trade and can offer the same quality education to anyone. As a student myself, I realized that having great sound, solid timing and grove are just as essential as having cool beats to play. There are more technicalities to drumming than being able to play fast or having the best chops. Aside from learning how to play drums, knowing how to think about music, how to listen to music, and how to study music will give a great foundation to any student of any style. I first like to determine the students ability and understanding by working on a few coordination exercises and reading exercises. From a good foundation, I build a curriculum,
My philosophy on teaching begins with what the student wants to learn, where they want to go with their music, and what their desires are as far as musicianship goes. I start by letting them play for me, and then we go from there to tailor the lessons according to their ability. There have been numerous books written on technique, speed, sight reading and rudiments, of which I have many in my battery of materials. The student and the teacher work together to make the student better.
I am a third generation musician on both sides of my family, and am continuing the tradition in my father's footsteps as a drum and percussion instructor. I am a member of the American Federation of Musicians, local 65-699 in Houston, TX. I graduated from Queens College-City University New York in 2010, with a major in Creative Writing and a minor in music from the Aaron Copeland School of Music.Â I have taught, played and recited poetry in France, Bolivia, New York City, and my two hometowns of San Antonio & Houston, TX.Â These experiences have made me not only a better writer and musician, but a better person.
I have over 20 years of playing live and recording experience in the music industry. I began teaching as a favor to a bandmate over a decade ago, and quickly discovered a new passion besides just playing. I get a huge sense of reward seeing a student not only progress as a drummer, but as a musician as well. My lessons primarily focus on proper grip techniques, posture, basic drum beats, common drum fills, drum set dynamics, and of coarse, how to play the music they want to play.
I am 42, and started young of 12 years of age with drums. I also play the guitar, bass, piano, and sing, but am classically trained by professionals for a decade or more in drums. I take the student through the subject and address the very beginning, to more advance concepts and relationship to "what is going on" and "how to address blocks" with insight, techniques, and support. I like to teach out of the book and in the book with occasional additional guitar or bass to develop my students.
I started drums at the age of 12, and I am now 42! I am a native Houstonian with a degree in network engineering and over a decade of formal education in percussion. I have taught drums now for over a year with a company from California and would love to be your new drum teacher. I am also a recording instructor, and have been featured on radio programs.
I strive to provide students with the tools needed to master musical skills. I also strive to be creative, nurturing and most of all, patient. It is very rewarding to see a student of mine excel in their musical endeavors. Every student may learn at their own pace but I build them all up so that the end result is the same: musical mastery.
My teaching experience dates back to my high school days. I taught private lessons to students at the middle school I attended so they would be prepared for what they'd have to do once they got to our level. As a senior in high school I aided the drumline at another local high school that had just opened. At the present time I am teaching musicians of all ages, ranging from the age of 6 to elderly adult. Before graduating from college, my passion for and knowledge of percussion created an opportunity for me to work for the North Forest Community All-Star Band Drumline and the North Forest High School Drumline. This position allowed me to teach the drumline and instill the discipline and tools needed to win competitions. I have worked with all kinds of students from all walks of life.

"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
