Overview

Hello! My name is Cristina and I have been playing drums since I was a child. After graduating high school, I decided to continue to pursue music. For the past 4 years I have been studying Percussion and Drums, first at the University of Houston, and presently, and the University of Texas at San Antonio with plans to finish my Bachelor of Music degree. I specialize in drumset, and percussion instruments such as marimba, snare drum, vibraphone, etc. I also am able to teach marching band percussion and drumline instruments. Along with teaching, I am a gigging musician with great versatility and experience in many genres of music. Not only am I able to teach basic fundamentals of music such as technique, reading music, styles, etc., I can make learning to be a great musician a very enjoyable process!!

*** Lesson Details ***
My style of teaching is very relaxed and patient. I use real word analogies and use a student's personal interests to help make music easier to understand. I take the time to get to know my students' personalities and interests in order to accommodate their needs. My curriculum would consist of understanding drums/percussion instruments, rhythms/styles/timing, technique, music notation, and performance manners. After 3-6 months of lessons, students will know the basics of what I have listed above. I believe that if you have patience with yourself, that you can achieve any kind of goal. All it takes is a good teacher, faith in yourself, and practice!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upstairs room. Two drum kits with seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have various mallets and sticks. I can bring a small drum kit. I expect my students to provide their own mallets and sticks, along with EARPLUGS, and a folder for all of your papers.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Jazz, Pop, Hip Hop, Country, Tejano/Folk. Very Familiar with most genres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cristina gives excellent pointers that are helpful in improving playing. She takes note of things that may hinder my advancement and make my playing more difficult. She is both encouraging and reasonably critical where it counts. January 24, 2012
