Drum, Piano, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion
I am a graduate of Northwest Vista College (AA Music Technology) and Schreiner University (BA Music). I have been playing piano and drums for seven years and working with music technology for five years.
On piano I have studied with many fine pianists including Dr. Hsin Chan and Dr. Beth May of Northwest Vista college and Dr. Don Crandall, head of Schreiner University's music department. I have experience reading everything from pop charts to Bach. As such, I am comfortable helping students learn almost any style of music they are interested in. That said, students looking to learn advanced jazz techniques should probably look elsewhere, since I am still studying that myself!
On drums I have studied with John Godoy, principal timpanist of the Corpus Christi Orchestra and Don Gilbert the principal timpanist of Kerrville’s Symphony of the Hills orchestra. Additionally, I have played in ensembles ranging from rock bands to orchestras. My primary area of expertise on drum set is rock style playing but I am also comfortable teaching the basics of jazz style playing.
On the music technology side of things I have experience with both recording and in the box production techniques, which is to say, making music with software on a computer. I got started with music production working on music of my own. Later I improved my skills by studying at Northwest Vista, acting as recording engineer for a San Antonio music school, doing concert recordings for the Schreiner University concert band, and mixing albums for local bands.
With music school behind me I am now working on a computer science degree at UTSA. I hope to develop music production software after completing this second degree. If this endeavour does not work out I will probably head off to graduate school somewhere.
I have been playing drums since I was 10 yrs old. Some might say its a late start, but I was a ready and driven as ever. Previously I had taken piano and guitar lessons for years, but I couldn't steer away from wanting to play the drums. I wanted to be a diverse drummer and coming from guitar and piano I wanted to learn to be a melodic drummer which I have worked on since. I will teach the art of drums in a form thats understandable and diverse. Everyday is a new experience linked from the last lesson, if you have a special interest in music we will work on it as I can teach samba, jazz, cumbia, r&b, hip hop, gospel, rock, blues, DnB, dance, electro and more. The world of drumming is opening up immensely and now is the perfect time to start, from sponsorships to drum- offs and DVD's to DJ Drum Set combinations which allows you to share the stage with another person and be a star . The necessity to have a quality, sound drummer in your band is in high demand, we will work on getting your chops up as well as being sound fundamentally, being creative and open- minded, appreciating those who have come before us and take a look at the direction of music as it has changed greatly and continues to do so every day. I have played with such acts as; Ellen and the Degenerates for 2 years, a local cover band who was in high demand. Nate Davenport a local talent with great ambition , great business mindset and an awesome voice, and I have been on a U.S. tour with Audaz De La Sierra including New York (Madison Square Garden) Chicago, Las Vegas etc. I have played for many bands starting with the church choir singing, and playing drums., all throughout high school with a successful band called Midnight Swim, Filio and I am now in a jazz collective.

Hi! My name is Felipe and I am a multi-instrumentalist who loves helping others learn how to play music and have fun while doing it. I received my Bachelors in Music from the University of North Texas where I specialized in Music Theory and Classical Guitar. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Texas State University.
l began playing music in High School when I taught myself how to play drums and guitar by playing along with CD's of my favorite bands. Since then, I have played in many garage bands and pursued an education in music.
My teaching style is very laid-back, yet can be very intense for student who are ready to get to the next level. I understand that all students, no matter what age, are different. I don't expect everyone to learn music my way but help to put music in terms that the student understands and feels comfortable with. I understand that some people learn things differently and try my hardest to make my lessons fit the students individual style. I don't shout chords at the students and expect them to just know them. I like to teach multiple versions of the same chords and work with the student to figure out which works best with them.
Drum, Music Theory, Percussion
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!!

I am a music educator of eight years: I have taught both middle school band and choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education: I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).
I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records for big labels (BMG and Sony Music among them). I work as a producer and my approach to teaching comes from my love of Music in general. I have been a drums instructor for more than 30 years and my students always get the gigs. I speak English and Spanish. My teaching style is fun and has a very clear outline, remaining flexible within it. I keep learning and practicing every day, and am very open to having fun together while learning. If you practice, the results are shown on every lesson and you will really notice it!
