Hello! My name is David G. aka “Pudge”. I live in Brooklyn, NY and I would love to share my expertise and teach you drums, congas, batá, or any other percussion instruments you would like to explore. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz and Improvisational Music from the University of Nevada, Reno, and I have experience recording and performing in many musical settings including small group jazz, big band, pop, blues, rock, metal, punk, country, salsa, Brazilian, Cuban, orchestral, marching, reggae/ska, and church music. I play congas and have experience playing and recording in funk, salsa, timba, rumba, and other folkloric Cuban styles. I also play batá drums, double-headed Afro-Cuban drums played in the religious ceremonies of Santería. I also speak intermediate Spanish and can tutor beginning speakers and a wide variety of other school topics. My curriculum for students is very focused but flexible to each student's interests and needs, generally focusing on technique, rudiments, groove, playing songs/arrangements, improvising in different settings, reading music, listening, and sharing my real world experience to guide my students towards their goals. But most importantly, I bring positive energy, love, and spiritual connection to drumming and practice that encourages my students to have fun, enjoy the learning process, be patient and nonjudgmental, and ask me whatever questions they have about life as a musician. I look forward to working with you!

I had my first lesson with Kevin this evening and thought he was excellent. He was clear, personable, knowledgeable and understood well what I was looking for.
