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!

I break teaching down to an easy-to-understand language by demonstrating techniques, rudiments, drum set styles, and playing along with music within the drum lesson. I've been drumming for over 10 years, and I have been teaching for 4 years. I combine knowledge of contemporary drumming techniques along with applications handed down through other drummers for different learning experiences for students. Whether chosen as a hobby or a possible career route, having an experienced drum teacher is key.

I have discovered through my studies, the more I learn the more I don't know. We are all perpetual beginners and our advancement depends on or ability to use fundamentals as tools for self expression. Whether it's learning how to bounce a stick, or wrapping your head around conveying time (or times!), or even moving into a spiritual aspect of drumming, I am happy to offer any assistance you may need.

About Adam
I've been playing drums since I was 5 and teaching since I moved to NYC in 2004. I graduated from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and have been performing ever since. In addition to playing I continue to practice and study, broadening concepts of music, rhythm, technique, and communication. I love sharing what I've learned hope it can help anyone on a similar path.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio is equipped with multiple drum kits, conga, timbale, bongo, misc. percussion, amps, and keyboard.

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.

Find the voice of any drum and make it sing. Students of every level benefit from rhythmic breath and speaking the words of the rhythms. Beginners will find the sounds of the drum, learn the language used to explain patterns, and quickly memorize rhythms by name. Everybody learns differently, we will write, speak, feel, or clown around until you fully grasp the rhythm. Intermediate and advanced students will benefit from a variety of techniques from around the world to employ to make even familiar patterns sound fresh.

About Peter
I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable finding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body. Rhythmic breathing is made simple and encouraged from the start. Tones and drum patterns can be explained verbally or written mathematically. Students remember the patterns forever, as well as gaining comfort in playing with other drummers or instruments. Odd time signatures or complicated songs can be tackled and easily learned. Use any drum or percussion instrument you have! Recordings are encouraged if you like!

Peter grew up in Chicago, raised to love soulful music. A graduate of Northwestern University's Performance Studies program with a focus on Theatre and
Media Arts, Public Speaking, and Ethnology. Designing percussion for stage and dance lead to studies and teaching of North and West African, Middle Eastern drum, Caribbean/South American and Asian drum and percussion rhythms. First hand experience has been gained by living in Morocco and South Korea for nearly a year each, studying and documenting folk music.

Fort Collins, CO

I studied Afro-Cuban Percussion, Percussion and Drums at the University of Northern Colorado, the nation's 3rd largest Jazz school. I bring 17+ years of education and teaching experience to the table.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

Having played the drum set and hand drums for 25 years: live, in the studio, on the radio, for cover bands, for churches, and in my own band- I’ve learned to be quite versatile in my approach to percussion. These experiences have given me the opportunity to learn a great deal about drum and percussion, and it’s place within music, which I’d love be able to convey, and transfer onto the student as well.

About Mike
I’ve been teaching and playing drums for a couple decades, however, it didn’t take that long to get good at the drums. In fact, it doesn’t take long at all. I’ve set drumming goals for myself and have achieved all of them. Being in a band, making an album, being signed to record label, playing on the radio, playing concerts... none of these things are extraordinary and none of them are out of reach! One of my goals is to have you independently playing the drums as soon as possible. I want you, the student to get it. I want you to comprehend what the drums are and what they do, and how they function within a band setting as well as by themselves and then... I want you to go off on your own. Use your own creativity and take the things you’ve learned and make it your own. Everyone of us teachers was at some point an uneducated student who ne
eded help and to be set free. That’s what I do. I help you learn and then get you going-
