Edgar V. Miami, FL

Subjects Taught

Drum, Percussion, Spanish

About Me

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 freelance at different T.V. Networks as a background drummer and percussionist for artists promoting their songs on TV shows. I have won drum contests and competitions on stores and online as well. I have recorded various records and singles with major producers and performed in different countries as a hired drummer.

I've been sharing my knowledge in drums with others since I first started playing drums! I€™m a believer that the more you share, the more you learn, and overtime I've realized that the process never stops. At first I was a drum instructor at a local church in Colombia. I had 10 €“ 20 students in a single classroom -- It was a great experience! Then when I came to the U.S. I've been mainly instructing privately, so I have plenty of experience.

Schedule a lesson with me now and start learning the art of playing drums. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities. After all, you might be the next music prodigy, but perhaps you don€™t know it yet! See you soon!

About Me

Hey there My name is Charles, but I prefer to be called Kris. I was born in Montgomery Alabama, but became a south Florida native after relocating to south Florida at a young age. I began playing drums at age eight and making music has been my passion since. At age thirteen one of my middle school music teacher took interest in me and taught me how to play the euphonium. Shortly after I was learning how to play the trombone.
Upon graduating I began exploring my love for music; as I began attending Dillard's high school. There I joined the band and began touring to play at different schools, events, and competitions.
As my high school career came to an end, I was accepted to Florida A&M University with a music scholarship.
​Today I am working towards my Bachelors of Music at Florida Memorial University. And also perform at local events throughout south Florida, and teaching youths throughout the city. I love traveling, meeting new people, listening to and playing music, exploring new cultures, food, and music :-D!!!!

About Me

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 Musician’s Institute, M.I., in Los Angeles, California under the direction of the legendary drum instructor Joe Porcaro. I have a unique presence, approach and distinctive talent. I have a large number of professional credits, including dates with Nichole Nordeman, Mark Schultz, and Cowboy Troy as well as an American Tour with the Brazilian singer Eliana Pittman with a record Live CD in Miami, plus opening act at Contemporary Rock Gospel Tour for famous bands as Sweet Foot, Five Iron Frenzy, Audio Adrenaline, Small Town Poets, Jars of Clay and others. I am very passionate for my art and very creative, with my style, easily crossing borders between rock, pop, jazz and modern music. My creative fusion adds a world-class touch to any type of sound.
I want to help you and nurture your interest and inspire you to develop a life long passion that offers countless benefits.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Cello, Classical Guitar, Drum, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Upright Bass

About Me

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15 albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
