About Gabriel

Gabe has been playing the drums for twenty years and has been teaching students for about twelve years. In that time he has played with numerous live acts as well as studio work. His experience mostly lies in jazz, funk, blues, latin, and rock. As much as he loves playing these styles he loves to teach them. Gabe's music education began in grammar school and continued through high school. In college he earned a non-music bachelor's degree but never stopped studying the drums. With the help of his own private instructors and continued playing experience, he now considers himself a self-taught musician and uses this experience to show his students how to do the same. His students can expect a challenging curriculum that will make them better players no matter what style of music ...

Great Instructor

Gabe is a great instructor who is extremely knowledgeable in all facets of the drum and drumming. I am an older student who has started lessons after a very long layoff from the drums….way back to elementary school days. Gabe is extremely patient as we have gone back and started with the very basics. I would highly recommend Gabe to anyone interested in studying the drums at any level.

Outstanding student instructor!

Gabe has been a phenomenal drum instructor for our 10-year old nephew! He blends the perfect balance of discipline on fundamentals with fun rhythms that keep our nephew interested but focused. We've seen great progress in his development just in the first two months. Gabe is very patient, yet firm, in his style and his skill level is amazing, so his qualifications are certainly exceeded.

Overall, we would highly recommend Gabe for student instruction!

Great Teacher!

Gabe is an awesome teacher. Very laid back, but also knows his stuff and supplies plenty of good practice material to help improve your skills. Seems to be familiar with teaching all different kinds of styles and has no problem adjusting the lessons to suit the needs of the student.

After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to

Daniel is a excellent instructor. He's very patience, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I cant wait for our next lesson to learn some more. I tried on my own and was going to give up but Daniel has shown me that I can learn to play bass.

Linda L. Tucker, GA

I play and teach a variety of percussion instruments, including hand drums (congas, tubano, djembe, bongos), xylophone and other toned percussion, shaker-type instruments, tambourine, guiro, etc.
Percussion instruments are a great way to introduce very young children to playing music. In the past, I taught music classes to toddlers and preschoolers, with an emphasis on percussion. I have also taught percussion to teens and adults.

About Linda

*** Travel Equipment *** I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so. I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children. The students must have their own instruments, music stand, paper and pencil, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions. *** Specialties *** On guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs. Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory. When using an electronic keyboard, I

I can work with you on mallet technique (marimba, xylophone, bells, vibraphone, etc.) and help you learn from classical/orchestral, pop, and jazz literature. I can also assist you with learning orchestral snare drum technique. We can work on learning orchestral repertoire as well. A few of the books I use are the Modern School for Xylophone, Marimba, and Vibraphone (Goldenberg), Modern Method for Tympani (Goodman), and Stick Control (Stone). Please see my bio (the "About" section) for my orchestral experience.

Mr. Stephen has been a great teacher , He has been teaching my boys piano for about nine months and he knows how to teach each one of them at their level. The boys started at the same time and they are learning at a great pace. I would recommend Mr. Stephen to anyone looking for a great teacher. He is truly a blessing and my boy always look forward to going for lessons

Steve D. is an excellent teacher! My daughter is in the band at her middle school, and she started taking lessons a few weeks before school started. She was worried about having to play a part on the bells that she did not know. Steve showed her exactly how to play it, and she was able to play the whole piece before leaving her lesson. She came worried, and she left confident! Steve is very patient, and is able to answer any question you ask him regarding percussion. He is very kind as well, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs lessons.
