The drums are the backbone of most music, so you have to be able to feel the groove and stay tight and on top of the beat. I encourage students to pick their favorite songs, and we drum to those while learning proper technique, rudiments, song form, fills, rhythm, different grooves / beats, and anything they want to know about the drums. I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years and have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music. Drums is a beautiful art and form of expression and is just the tip of the iceberg we can tackle called Music.

sooooooo much fun taking hand drum lessons from Brian! Ultra beginner student is me (shhh I'm getting better!). I decided to learn bongos plus the djembe ( I don't own either drum BUT he has them at his studio so it was cool )......He is very supportive when I try the exercises he shows me and no pressure to be a pro right away lol. I will keep coming to learn more and more I like the salsa stuff he showed me at lessons.......and don't worry Brian I am about to buy a set of bongos to practice at home! Cool guy - recommended!!!
Luther
This dude can play! Brian is a great teacher.. we did some hand drums and drum set for the few lessons we had together. I was new to learning music and glad I came across Brian because he is a chill guy with positive light. I felt as if I could take drums as far as I wanted with Brian as my teacher. I will be back for some more lessons when my wife lets me lol.
Jessie
Quality drum teacher. I took lessons with Brian for about a year and his teaching style is relaxed compared to other drummers I studied with. I never felt rushed with the exercises, we always went at my pace. I recommend this teacher.

My experience as a performer and teacher spans over 25 years of every musical style. I believe in creating an environment that is focused on playing music well and where the student can have fun while gaining confidence. It is important to develop functional musicians with good technique, time, and listening skills. We will cover all styles of conga/bongo music from Latin, Afro-Cuban, and rock/pop, including jazz, and other percussion as desired.

About Mariano

My experience as a performer and teacher ranges from early music to today's rock and pop, including various percussion instruments from around the world. When studying for my bachelors and masters degrees in music, I did course work in music recording, jazz studies, and music history. In addition,

Mariano is fun, professional, and knows his craft!
Evan
Mariano is excellent! He is firm yet patient and professional, and gets along really well with my son.
Emma
Mariano was an amazing percussion and drum set teacher. His lessons were engaging and productive, and he was always able to communicate an idea or musical concept in a way that I was able to understand and connect with. After about 2 years of lessons I was accepted into the Orange County School of the Arts for percussion and I owe my success to the lessons I took with Mariano. I continued lessening throughout high school and my skill level contined to grow. What I loved about Mariano's teaching was his unique ability to take very simple exercises and make them more difficult and therefore much more beneficial. Along with stressing the importance of basic technique, he would constantly inteoduce me to new things - Afro beats, traditional grip, Latin beats, new ways to sight read, and 4 mallet marimba technique. I would highly suggest taking lessons with Mariano if you are looking for a fun, encouraging teacher who has lots of experience with a variety of percussion performance!

I am a well-rounded drum teacher, meaning I have learned and studied genres ranging from blues, jazz, rock and indie rock. I will give you tons of music to listen to and interpret and teach you how to learn tunes by ear. You will understand the forms of jazz tunes such as aaba Aba and abc. You will learn how to play the tunes you listen to and take the concepts of drum beats and drum rudiments used within them o make them your own and use them in your original playing. I also teach how to read standard drum notation, and can teach you how time signatures work and the values of notes if you don’t already know.

About Eli

Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eli was great. He was very patient with my son during his very first music lesson. Eli made the lesson fun and enjoyable. My son enjoyed the lesson very much and is looking forward to his next one.

"We have had two lessons with Murray. My 8 year old loves her lessons. We have had other teachers in the past and he is by far the best. My daughter is engaged, excited, and is learning quickly. Murray makes learning fun! He encourages and explains and rewards with clapping and laughing!!! He knows his stuff and can relate and engage even over the internet. We love this teacher!"
