Students can expect a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

About Erasmo
Hello Parents and Students,

I have been teaching and writing music professionally for ten years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't be where I am at if it weren't for his help and positive encouragement. Now I try to encourage all of my students the same way.

After high school I went on and played percussion with various Orchestras such as the "œInland Valley Symphony Orchestra" and "Mt. San Jacinto Symphony Orchestra."

I have also been involved in the DCI (Drum Corps International) and Drumline community. I toured for four years and experienced performing with groups such as Yamato Drum and Bugle Corps 2002-2005, Black Knights 2006, and RCC marching and winter percussion under the direct
ion of Scott Johnson & Jeff Lee in 2002, and Sean Vega & Jim Wunderlich in 2003.

During my college years I started playing Jazz Vibraphone in my school'™s top big-band. This allowed me the opportunity to play Jazz Piano which I have performed and still study until this day. As a result, Jazz has now become one of my biggest passions.

As a Professional International Composer, I have had the privilege of writing and arranging for many marching bands, wind ensembles, and indoor percussion ensembles, including orchestrations, recordings and sequencing projects for media, and musical theatre in the United States and Japan.

I am also currently an adjudicator for the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) and a member of the Vic-Firth Education Team.

I hope that this gives you a close and personal Idea of where I come from and hope that I can help you get the most out of your experience with music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that in order for you to get the most out of our lessons it takes both, the Teacher'™s and Student'™s understanding and attention from both ends. sometimes giving all of the information in the world won't help if one there is no engagement and two if me as a teacher don't make sure that you understand. So I like to make sure to explain things in more than one way to make sure the student understands the concepts and what to practice.

I like to keep a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

Over the span of 20 years in music education, Travis is proud to have worked with students of all ages, abilities and skill levels achieve their musical goals. Lessons taught with patience and consistency have provided his students with the most important skills and concepts to play with confidence and proficiency through the use of proper technique and a direct model of fundamentals.

Travis has been involved in numerous playing situations throughout his career. Studying under great industry professionals has helped him become proficient in all styles of popular music and makes him a well rounded player and an exceptional teacher. He has performed in a number of different
groups that include many diverse styles of
music and has toured and recorded with various artists in the United States. Now, settled on music education, he enjoys teaching at an academy for the arts where he gives private lessons, clinics and group classes.

In his teachings he improves the student's technique and creativity while introducing many important concepts that have influenced modern music. He continues playing with various artists and is involved in many community events.

“I assist my students with playing like their musical idols by using proper teaching methods to help them become well versed in the musical styling of their choice.” -Travis Blum

"I love meeting the needs of my students to enhance their musical growth." -Travis Blum

Piano students will focus on the most important skills and concepts they need to be able to play proficiently and musically. This will be through the use of proper technique and providing a clear explanation of music theory, scales, progressions, harmonizing, improvising, ear training, sight reading and understanding lead sheets. All will be in the best interest of the student in order to focus them toward playing the songs and styles they wish to play. Everything will be demonstrated and explained thoroughly with clarity and patience. Exercises to help the students build confidence to play parts that they can call their own will be encouraged.

Drum lessons will improve the students technique and creativity while introducing the many diverse styles. Students will implement the use of the rudiments and see how they might be applied to beats or fills on the drum set. Linear patterns and four way coordination patterns will be applied for developing good coordination skills and ambidextrous discipline in advanced players. Beginners will learn to grasp a feel of straight quarter, eighth and sixteenth note beats. Shuffle and swing rhythms will be covered so the student can get a feel of grooves that are based on these concepts. Students may also learn about music and rhythms from all over the world, as they apply to all of the styles of modern music as we know it. After the basis of various rhythmic concepts are applied, then the student can reach into the field of playing over the bar line, playing in odd meters, and soloing.

About Charles
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.

Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son. We highly recommend Charles!

I grew up playing and listening to jazz and rock music. That is my main focus in the beginning. We will start simple rudiments and beats for snare and drumset and grow from there. Technique, control and passion.

Ani is an amazing instructor. It is clear that she cares very much about her profession. I signed up for voice lessons, and she has been teaching me to read music and play the piano because it all ties together. She is also getting me to a point of independence so that I can practice at home with ease. I just love how peaceful and non-judge-mental she is... I have learned lots and I am very happy I found her :)!

Want to be a famous drummer? Do you want to be a master of your craft?

I want to teach you how the pleasure of drumming while implementing the essentials such as timekeeping, pocket, and appropriate groove choices.

I can teach you Rock, Reggae, Funk, Punk, Country, Latin, Metal, or Jazz. But more important, I can teach you how to be the musician other musicians want to play with... how to have the right attitude. Let's play some drums!

About Miah
Jeremiah “Miah” Palmer is a professional drummer originally from the San Francisco East Bay area. Having started his percussion instruction in elementary school at age 9, he proceeded through junior and high schools playing in the concert, symphonic, jazz, and marching bands.
At age 15 he joined his first rock band, which he played with through the rest of high school. At 19 he joined the US Army, and throughout his service, he continued to play professional gigs and record around central Texas while not deployed. After the Army he moved to Michigan to pursue music playing live gigs and recording drums for jingles for radio commercials.

If you are looking for someone to teach you concert percussion or marching percussion skills, I am your guy. From snare drum to marimba to bongos, I cover all the bases (pun intended). I compete in Drum Corps International and Winter Guard International (Drums). I march bass drum with the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps and for Vessel Percussion, which are two highly recognized World Class groups. In terms of teaching, I taught a middle school drumline this past winter and led them to a 2nd place title in State Championships. I make sure to design my lesson plan around the student to best fit their learning needs. Teaching and percussion are two of major passions, so I promise that you will be in good hands with me as a teacher. I hope to hear from you soon!

About Finn
I started my percussion career in the 6th grade and have been playing for 8 years now. I pursued percussion (and music in general) all throughout high school. A big influence on my teaching styles and techniques came from my high school marching band. In my freshman year of high school, as a drumline we achieved 2nd in the state of Michigan overall (out of 44). The years following have been very similar in placement all the way through my Senior year of high school. I also played with an indoor drumline named Farmington United Percussion Ensemble. In State Championship competition, we have led the division in 1st place for the past 4 years (Michigan Color Guard Circuit). We have also made World Finals in Dayton, Ohio for the past 4 years, with a 2nd place medal this past year in Winter Guard International (Drums) Independent A Class..

A
s of 2 months ago I moved to California to pursue higher level indoor drumlines. I'm currently a part of Vessel Percussion, a World Class percussion group based out of Ontario, California. This coming summer I will also be marching with the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, which is a World Class marching band that placed 4th in the world at the top level of competition in Drum Corps International. As a way to help raise funds to pay for these activities, I am hoping to be able to spread my knowledge and teachings on to others who wish to pursue percussion in some way, shape, or form.

Lessons will inlude: Concert Percussion (snare, bass, cymbals, toms, timpani, keyboards, auxiliary), Marching Percussion (marching snare, marching bass, marching tenors, marching cymbals), and light exploration of Visual Performance (marching, confidence, fluidity)

When I teach, I will be able to provide a Marimba, Mallets, a Marching Bass Drum, and Practice Pads for teaching. I will have spare sticks, but I do prefer if students bring their own sticks. A lesson with me isn't just about playing the instrument and learning a shallow lesson only about rhythms and hitting things with sticks. I heavily encourage and focus on teaching music theory, instrument history, different genres and styles of percussion and music in general, the different techniques and approaches, modern drumming vs. "old-school" drumming, and making sure the student gets a true understanding of what percussion really is.

In the words of my mentor, "A drummer knows how play drums. A percussionist knows how to master them."
