About Andrew

I have been playing drums since I was 10 yrs old. Some might say its a late start, but I was a ready and driven as ever. Previously I had taken piano and guitar lessons for years, but I couldn't steer away from wanting to play the drums. I wanted to be a diverse drummer and coming from guitar and piano I wanted to learn to be a melodic drummer which I have worked on since. I will teach the art of drums in a form thats understandable and diverse. Everyday is a new experience linked from the last lesson, if you have a special interest in music we will work on it as I can teach samba, jazz, cumbia, r&b, hip hop, gospel, rock, blues, DnB, dance, electro and more. The world of drumming is opening up immensely and now is the perfect time to start, from sponsorships to drum- offs and DVD's to ...

Felipe G. San Antonio, TX

The first instrument I taught myself was drums, so helping others learn is very special to me. Materials used during drum lessons include the Hal Leonard publications The Visual Drumset Method and Drum Aerobics.

About Felipe

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Felipe Garcia and I am a self-taught music teacher. I began teaching music in 2010 and have loved it ever since. I believe learning to play music can be fun and easy, and I work hard to make sure your experience with music is one that will inspire you to keep playing for the rest of your life, for as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “without music, life would be a mistake.” My experience with music began long ago when I begged my parents to buy me a drumset and they finally gave in and bought me one when I was 14. Prior to that, I had no real experience with music except as a listener. I taught myself how to play by playing along with CDs of my favorite bands and eventually I felt like the drums wasn't enough, so I talked my parents into ...

Felipe has been great. I am learning a challenging new instrument - a 6-string banjo (aka a Banjitar) - which is a banjo/guitar blend. In less than a month I am feeling more confident and comfortable with the instrument. I am looking forward to learning more!

Felipe has been a fantastic instructor! My son is 4, nearing 5, and like most his age, has a limited attention span. Felipe has been able to keep him engaged and has been extremely flexible and easy to work with. He has introduced my son to not only drums, but also any other instrument he shows an interest in. I highly recommend him.

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

Alfredo V. San Antonio, TX

I've been a Drum Set teacher for over 30 years. I base my courses in what I learned at the Drummers Collective in N.Y. I cover as many styles as possible. My main goal as a teacher is for you to become a better drummer, cause a better drummer is happy drummer.

About Alfredo

I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records for big labels (BMG and Sony Music among them). I work as a producer and my approach to teaching comes from my love of Music in general. I have been a drums instructor for more than 30 years and my students always get the gigs. I speak English and Spanish. My teaching style is fun and has a very clear outline, remaining flexible within it. I keep learning and practicing every day, and am very open to having fun together while learning. If you practice, the results are shown on every lesson and ...

Alfredo is an incredibly accomplished Drummer and musician! His professional musical experience and accomplishments are quite impressive. It's humbling to have someone with his professional music background as a teacher. But don't let his background intimidate you. He is very patient, and has a well structured methodology to teach you how to become a good drummer. Alfredo's technique is not directed to just learn easy groves to play along with music. Rather, he is committed to teaching you the proper techniques that will give you the foundation to become a skilled drummer if you are willing to put in the time. It's challenging, to say the least, but I think it will pay dividends in the long-run. When you are around Alfredo, it's obvious that he "loves" playing the drums, as well as composing and playing other music/instruments. It's also great fun to play your exercises, while Alfredo plays along with you (challenging not to be distracted) on his drum set or bass guitar. Great FUN!
