*** Lesson Details ***
I want YOUR DRIVE AND PASSION TO PLAY DRUMS to set the pace for our lessons. A motivated and aspiring player leaves endless possibilities behind the kit! Lessons will start with a nice, rudimental warmup to get those hands and muscles warm. We'll focus on playing technique, muscle memory, as well as the key rudiments played by marching drummers and drum set players worldwide. Once we're warm, we'll move to getting that full, solid sound out of the drum set. Focusing again on technique (behind the kit now) and basic patterns to work on getting a great sound. We'll finish up by playing/jamming to your ...

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

About Cristina

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 ...

Cristina is knowledgeable, patient and a great teacher for me. I'm really excited about the progress I've made in just 3 short weeks and I know I want to go as far as I can in drumming.

I'm normally self-conscious and nervous about learning new skills, esp if I feel like I'm not able to be GREAT at it right away. But Cristina put me at ease right away and has helped me to be laid back and patient. That's a big deal.

She's an awesome drummer too.

About Robert

My job...Well I simply take a song I like, maybe Boston's more than a feeling or, Taylor Swifts 22 and play all the instruments to it! Everything! Just me! I am currently sponsored with youtube which means I make my living playing music! Dream come true! It's so awesome that this is how I work because I love every second of it! I also love teaching what I have learned. I am a 15 year musician but only 24! I own a recording studio in San Antonio Texas and love helping upcoming artists tighten there craft! I can teach anyone anything not just by curriculum but also association. If you love Led Zeppelin lets start the teaching there! and break the style apart by chords and progressions! I keep it fun.
