About Yves

I grew up in Quebec City Canada, where I only spoke French during those growing years. From a very young age, I was always attracted to music and particularly playing drums. My mom has told me that before I could even walk, I was already banging away on whatever I could put my hands on. I would sit down with pots, pans, and spoons and bang away. My parents bought my first “real” drum kit when I was about five years old. It was a Mickey Mouse drum set that they ordered from the Sears catalog. I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, because of the poor quality of the drum, this particular kit only lasted a couple months, but it was on that very drum kit that I gave my first live performance. The concert took place in the basement of my house. This memorable concert included one song, a ...

Yves truly qualified in experience and teaching ability

Selected Yves as a drum teacher for my son based on his profile. Yves is an experienced, patient and fun instructor that has been effective making drumming fun and interesting to my five year old. Yves is good at making sure parents understand how to help their child in the learning process. Yves is a bit further out from me but I am not disappointed. Thank you Yves.

Yves is THE BEST instructor!

My son is 5-years-old and quite an active little guy! When he said he was interested in learning to play guitar, I wasn't sure we would be able to find a teacher for his age. We did; Yves is the best! Yves is always patient with him and understanding of his age/ ability. He instructs him with kindness and holds his attention. Yves also has a wonderful home studio in a nice home/area. He is flexible with scheduling as well. He goes above and beyond with extra help and recommendations for helpful materials. My son looks forward to seeing him every week and sharing with him 'how much I practiced'. We would highly recommend Yves to anyone.

Yves was our 11-year-old grandson's first drum teacher and he was great. Yves knew how to let him play around a little bit and still keep him on track. Our grandson always looked forward to his next lesson and was excited to go. The driving distance got to be too much so we had to find a teacher who was closer to us.
Alfredo S. Temple City, CA

I teach a bit of snare drum techniques for concert band and hand drum percussion. I can help students their studies, who are in percussion in their school band.

About Alfredo

Hi! My name is Al! I've been playing drums for about 11 years now, I started playing at the age of 12 when my parents bought me my first drum set. Since then drumming has been my life, everything from playing in numerous bands, drum competitions, private teaching, and National US Tours. Leaving my home town of Brownsville, TX behind, I moved out to L.A Summer of 2008 to attend the Los Angeles Music Academy, where I received my Associates Degree in Music Performance. I currently teach private lessons and I gig around town with various artists. I have lots of musical knowledge that Iv'e obtained by studying with LA's Top Drummers. I'd love to pass down my knowledge only to benefit you in your drum learning experience. If you're just a beginner, only want to take ...

Kris is awesome!

Kris is awesome! You will never meet anyone who loves musicor teaching as much as Kris. I startedwith him almost two years ago, and as an adult, beginning voice student I ampretty inhibited. Kris has an enthusiastic manner about him though, that reallyhelps you relax and feel more confident as he instructs you. When I started outthere was a real tightness in my voice that was probably more psychological thanphysical, but he showed me some important techniques for voice relaxation andamplification. For someone as shy about singing as I am, some of histechniques may seem a little outlandish at first, but they really do work! My karaoke buddies tell me that I sound even better than before! Iwholeheartedly recommend Kris to anyone who is looking for an enthusiastic andknowledgeable teacher.
