Victor-Andres C.

Boston, MA

About Victor-Andres

I'm a very friendly and easygoing instructor. My philosophy in teaching music is to show the student musical elements that can be put into practice right away, which can be used in a context to have a solid reference of the progress made. *** Lesson Details *** I strongly believe that in a learning process it is essential to experience results so that the motivation is there from the start. That is not to say that thing come easily to us, everything takes time and effort, but it is very positive to learn in ways where we can apply what we have learned to real life right away. This also goes hand in hand with spending the right amount of time practicing and studying, I put a very strong emphasis on this and I make sure the student is always understanding and advancing. For that, I strive

GREAT w/ KIDS!!!

VIctor, is a great instructor and my son (6yrs old) really likes him! He is patient and easy to follow. His rythms are fun to learn and he breaks them down very well. He is also very reliable and understanding if last minute change of plans arise. I would recommend Victor to any age group... After my son masters the drums with Victor we are looking to start guitar next. My son and I highly recommend! VICTOR, thanks so much for being so great! PS we started drum lessons in Dec 2012 and are still going strong as of May 2013.

My official drum guru!

I started taking lessons from Rob about 2003. I have found him to be a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Believe it or not, not every good musician can both play AND teach with competence. Rob can do both. He has vast technical skills but he also plays "music" with passion and musicality. I have also found Rob to be extremely sharing and generous beyond expectations.
What are you waiting for? Take some lessons!

!

The single most important influence on my musical career has unquestionably been the great Rob Eagan. Unlike many teachers out there, Rob teaches you how to be an all around musician and not just a drummer. He then encourages you to take your skills out into the real world by introducing you to people in your age group and beyond.

Without Rob I would not have been able to come out of my shell to pursue music in the way that I did. I cannot recommend him enough.

Danilo is the Best

Danilo is enthusiastic and fun. My son likes him very much and is learning a great deal. He enjoys his lessons. I think Danilo is a great match for my son - this is why I drive for one hour to get to the lessons and up to two and a half hours to get back home. (Traffic).
Danilo is a great teacher and very talented musician!! I'm thrilled we found him!

Great teacher, really talented

I have worked with Danilo for a few weeks and look forward to every lesson. Not only is he very talented, he is patient, attentive, and really works with you on getting the best out of every lesson. I would reccomend him to anyone looking to start an instrument or to get back into playing an instrument.

Danilo has not only taught my son trumpet, he has taught him to love music.

Danilo is a gifted teacher as well as an excellent musician. He tailors each lesson to my son's inclinations and interests while moving him along towards greater mastery of the trumpet. He encourages my son's curiosity and has conversations with my 10-year-old that touch on pretty sophisticated musical ideas. I cannot recommend Danilo more highly. He is patient, kind and always well-prepared for each lesson which builds on the work from the week before.

Gavin was a highly insightful teacher, he took me from never having held a pair of sticks to being able to play "Basket Case" by Green Day (It's my favorite song).
Super nice and fun to learn from.
