Edgar V. Miami, FL

If you hire my as your instructor, (or your son’s instructor), you will find you or your son immersed in an exciting music environment! I focus my lessons on 5 core skills for my students: Coordination, Rhythms, Music Theory, Sight Reading and Styles & Interpretation. I will apply these concepts in a way that is very intuitively and dynamic, so you will find you or your son playing like a pro in no time!

I also understand that you or your son will develop and learn at unique pace, and in order to further develop your skills and make your learning process more enjoyable, I will treat you as my friend or buddy and not only as my student. This is because studies have demonstrated that people tend to learn more when they make a connection with their instructor. Therefore my goal will be to find your strengths and weaknesses, so I’d know how to successfully convey the right message so you or your son become a better drummer with each lesson.

About Edgar

Hi there! My name is Edgar V., I€™m currently majoring in music business creative performance at Miami Dade College. I'm focused, patient, enthusiastic and very active! "Schedule a lesson with me now and start learning the art of playing drums."

My passion is playing drums and percussion. I've been playing drums for 14 years now. First I studied drums in Colombia with Shakira's former drummer Italo Lamboglia for 4 years and then when I moved here in US, I've kept refining my craft taking drum lessons at Miami Dade College, learning new techniques and so on.

I'm currently an independent drummer. I play with many artists and bands as a freelancer, So I get to perform very often live in different venues all over South Florida. I also ...

Excellent drum teacher!

Edgar is an amazing drummer and teacher. He's very patient and committed to make you a great drummer. He also takes the instruction from the "classroom" to the real world, he once took me to one of his shows and let me play a song with his band!!! That was amazing.

About Frederico

I am a professional drummer, well known within the international community, and I'm an experienced musician who has worked with bands and groups all over the country, at Miami, California, Boston, and one of South Florida’s top locally- based drummer. All of this makes me one of the unchallenged players in our music industry at Florida. I have recorded, toured and performed as a drummer with Protocol Jazz Band, Mix Brazil Samba, Paulo Gualano Brazilian Carnaval, Someday Radio, Vinyl rock band, Alex Petronouv singer, and far too many other projects too completely. After a life time of learning, I took my unique style from Copacabana, Brazil to the clubs and concert halls of the world. Formal lessons initially in Brazil with Pascoal Meireles, but further followed studies at the ...

My drum instructor has taught me how to read music, keep time with a metronome and how to enjoy learning the drums. He is very skilled at breaking everything down into smaller components making the daunting task of playing the drums more comprehensible. He is light-hearted, has a great personality and is encouraging, even when you think that the assignment is impossible.

I have great respect and admiration for my teacher. He's one of the best there is.
Andy M. Fort Lauderdale, FL

As a drum instructor, I use a groove orientated approach to get the students deep in the pocket, I teach students how to sight read the Drum set Legend. I organize beats into 4 (four) main categories (classic rock, modern rock, hip-hop, and rap, as well as additional styles) while also breaking down each category into, a multitude of sub-styles. I stress the importance of developing a good hand technique, with snare drum rudiments, good hand and foot technique with drum set rudiments, and poly-rhythmic technique with poly-rhythmic rudiments. I believe drum lessons should not just be so tedious, so I usually assign a simple song or two to keep the students interest and allow creative process through improvisation, all the while providing different ride cymbal patterns to gain the ability to play along with any rhythm on the bass drum and snare.

Andy is a great musician, teacher and person. He doesn't just understand music, he lives it. He is very patient and supportive with people and his talent definitely needs to be passed on to as many people who are lucky enough to get the chance!

I had looked at several people before settling on Andy for vocal lessons and I'm very happy I did. Even after a few lessons, I've noticed large strides in progress. He's very diligent and not complacent at all. He has stacks of books about voices and vocal faults- he's constantly trying to become better so you can be sure he'll do the same for you.

I've been very happy with my lessons so far and am giddy to see continued progress under Andy.

I have been working with Andy for almost 9 months and there's a reason for such longevity. He has proven to be a great mentor,encouraging me to try different songs and techniques which help me to go beyond what i think i'm able to do. He also shows great concern in teaching musical theory, which he explains with such passion and understanding of the craft that it's impossible not to be inspired by it.
Overall, Andy is a magnificent teacher. Reliable, inspiring, passionate and dedicated to what each individual student wants to learn.

I picked up the drums at an early age. Played in a bunch of bands growing up. The drums are such a fun and physical instrument, using your whole body. The energy it brings is truly unmatched. I will guide you step by step in playing a full drum kit, learning limb independence to create rocking drum beats.

About Mitchell

With almost 20 years of music education experience, I have developed a super fun and effective teaching method that has proven to work. I am a kid at heart and love working with children. And as the oldest child of 6, I possess the necessary patience and enthusiasm for their learning development. In addition, I have worked with many adult students who initially thought it was "too late" for them to learn an instrument. They proved themselves wrong and were very successful with their new found talent. I have been a professional recording artist and live performer since the age of 15. I began teaching around the same time as a way of earning extra spending money. As the years went on, I fell more in love with teaching and formed a career out of it. So come join me on this musical ...

I have taken lessons from Mitchell and have grown leaps and bounds in my ability to not on become a better guitar player, but also learning the fundamentals so that I can play on my own. He is the ultimate professional and his own skills as a musician show up when he is teaching.

It was a pleasure meeting Mitchell, he's a very good instructor. My daughter became very enthusiastic with everything that he taught her in just one hour. He was very clear with his methods and she understood everything. I recommend him as very good instructor.

You will learn all the different aspects of drumming: Independence, techniques, rhythms, sight-reading and more.To enrich their rhythmic techniques, teachers supplement their sessions with exercises from my library of 100-plus instructional books and DVDs. Once they master the necessary techniques , students can even enter the Drummer Paradise studio to lay down some beats.For all the parents out there who have trouble getting their young ones to get some exercise, try sitting them on a drum kit. Not only will they get the exercise they need, they will also have fun!

Corey is an excellent instructor. He is professional, very patient and truly inspiring. I particularly enjoy that he always finds a way to relate whatever is going on that week with drums. It’s a nice way to explain things in a way that makes sense to you but also keeps drums very relevant in daily life. I highly recommend him.
