I specialize in the following styles of playing:
Rock, Hip - Hop, All Latin, Jazz, Funk, Blues, R and B, Gospel, and Dance. I also have a very good feel for World Music as well. I have a very free-spirit for playing, so I often mesh the above stated styles into a more progressive style of playing. I believe that you must be feeling what you are playing.
For drum students, along with learning drum beats, students will also engage in drum tuning, reading drum charts,
warm-up/skill-building exercises, and internal hearing.
For guitar students, we will engage in guitar tuning, warm-up/skill building exercises, reading sheet music, reading TAB, notes on the guitar, chords, and student chosen songs, amongst other activities.
Aside from drums/percussion and guitar, I also specialize in beat programming/sequencing, recording, organizing song-writing/song-structure, musical score, live performance, and professional music marketing. I am able to show you how to use programs such as Reason 3.0, Logic Pro, Protools LE, and Adobe programs to take your creative abilities to the next level.
I believe that these days, it is imperative for musicians to have four major components in their professional arsenal: 1) Discipline and chops on your instruments; 2) Know how to successfully market yourself and your music; 3) Know how to properly develop a learning ear to record/produce your songs/tracks; and 4) Understand and effectively utilize music production programs.
Henri believes music should always be fun and inspiring for everyone, no matter what skill level. FUN is always the focus, because if you are not having fun, why are you doing it?
