About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me I divide the time that we have so that we are getting the maximum potential out of you and the lesson. There are some things that I'm laid back about and some things that I am very strict on, I will never become impatient with a student because every musician is different. I believe that some aspects of drumming you have to be strict on in order for you to learn and for you to do things correctly and there are others which are strictly to have fun with. We'll touch base on all of these things and I'll never let you leave the lesson without learning something new that you can take home and make your own. If you are a beginner, after 3 months you will be able to do basic rudiments as well as play along to music or a band of your choice. If you are more of the intermediate and expert level after three months we will have cleaned up your chops, studied the click track and composed a drum piece of your liking, and if you aren't with a band other than because you don't want to we will find you musicians for you to at least jam with. Discipline is key and there are many lessons that can't be taught in books and I will make sure to help you understand these. I have books that I do teach out of, we can discuss buying them for personal use but all you need is your mind and a pair of drumsticks and come ready to work and have fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Drum studio: 2 acoustic drum sets, hand percussion, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
sticks, snare and set if needed. If the child does not have a drum set I would then expect them to buy my teaching aid and a pair of drum sticks.

*** Specialties ***
simple learning method ensures knowledge of base instrument and can be applied to any music. Funk, rock, blues, gospel, hip hop, samba, afro-cuban, bassanova, jazz.

Cristina H. San Antonio, TX

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Theory, Percussion

About Me

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 ***
2 drumsets, PA

*** 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.

Neil D. Boerne, TX

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Drum, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

I am a music educator of nine 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).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to create life-long musicians...
I focus on the needs and interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures.
My lessons are structured into activities that incorporate various aspects of music appreciation:
Music theory, music history, music technology, performance practice, etc. (making such lessons comprehensive)

*** Studio Equipment ***
As a musician of over 24 years, I believe it is the "musician that makes the instrument", and not the other way around. That is, I do not believe it is necessary to purchase the 'top' brand for your instrument in order to achieve the desired sound. Frequent practice builds skills and results in the desired tones people wish to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I always bring my instrument, metronome, tuner, music stand and stand for my instrument, including lesson materials and supplies.
I expect students to obtain a metronome and to always have their music folder (with ALL music etc.) available for lessons.

*** Specialties ***
All genres, all styles & all cultures! I teach students of all ages--mostly at my home studio, but I also travel to students' homes, churches, and, during the Summer only, I meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.

About Me

I am currently a college student at the University of Texas at San Antonio working towards my Bachelor's degree. I have had an avid interest in teaching for several years, as I have been a private tutor for students in math, particularly with algebra. However, though I still am interested in teaching others math as needed, I feel the need to broaden the horizon and also teach subjects that I excel in as well. I am exceptionally knowledgeable in elements of English literature and spelling, playing percussion instruments, and can help students learn about any study of history as well.

*** Specialties ***
When it comes to percussion, I am especially able to teach conga drums, snare drums, and tenor drums.

With gaming, I particularly help those who need assistance with achievements/trophies for gaming consoles by providing comprehensive guides outlining the most effective way to get the achievement.
