About Erasmo

Hello Parents and Students, I have been teaching and writing music professionally for sixteen 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 if

Erasmo is very patient with my 9 year old who had stopped his drums lessons for about a year and his technique of teaching is different from the previous teacher as in he's touching up on more basic techniques and working on fundamentals in addition to just practicing some songs every class. I think in the long run my son will benefit from that.

Private Percussion Teacher

Lesson regiments are tailored to synthesize student goals and musical passions, setting a foundation in the instrument of interest.

Technique and practice-exercises provide the core for study and development (but we won't let that get in the way of the fun!).

My teaching philosophy largely derives from experience with master-drummers of different fields of study; my methods are thus a synthesis of concepts designed to ensure anyones improvement. We all have rhythm!

I am a professional percussionist and drum instructor based out of the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz. I teach both studio and outcall lessons to all ages, covering drumset, steel pan, hand drumming, orchestral percussion, music theory, and piano. Additionally, I am a leader in the samba

My son enjoys his lessons with Joe very much. He’s an encouraging teacher.

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Online Percussion Teacher

Award-Winning Teacher - Networked/played with members of Heart, Bad Company & Queensryche. Learn Your Favorite Songs Quickly & Accurately.

Percussion is one of my specialties.

Beginning to Intermediate Percussion lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, percussion is the backbone or "foundation" to
any hit song.

I break down percussion to its most basic rudiments so that
you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling
along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

"I have been taking music lessons of various types in and outside of school since elementary school and have never had a teacher who introduces concepts quite like Mr.Fuhrman. Things that I have struggled with ever since they were introduced; especially regarding rhythm/counting have become incredibly simple- as they should be! My progress regarding percussion (which I've been working with for over 4 years) has increased exponentially since working with him. Not only will he highly recommend essential practice, but he's willing to give you various strategies to manage time and to be able to fit the practice in. I've had music teachers (all of whom were very competent musicians) telling me to practice since the second grade, but no one's ever set aside some lesson time to discuss how to fit it in. I am a beginning music teacher myself and have already implemented some of the concepts he has taught with my own students. He's not only an incredibly skillful musician, but he is an amazing teacher as well. You won't regret doing lessons with him."
