About Brian
I'm a 31 year old professional musician who has been playing drums and percussion for the last 17 years. I've taught for a respected music studio in Connecticut and I continue to teach here in Los Angeles. I have played in numerous bands and toured the United States, Europe and Central America. The styles I teach are Rock, Jazz, Latin, R&B/Hip-Hop, Funk/Soul, Reggae, Folk/Indie, Metal/Hardcore and World Rhythms.

I teach drum-set and various types of hand percussion such as bongos, djembe, darbuka/doumbek and congas.

*** Lesson Details ***
I've always thought that learning should be fun. I consistently try to bring a creative and laid-back approach to teaching drums. After the first lesson most students realize that I don't take myself too seriously. Sometimes certain techniques or exercises can be tiresome or even boring. When this
occurs, I switch gears and move on to something else. In my opinion, if a student is getting very frustrated it is generally best to relax and try a different exercise or beat. If we can't enjoy ourselves then what is the point?!

*** Equipment ***
I expect a student to have at least a pair of sticks and a pad. Eventually they will need a metronome for practicing and if they are serious a drum-set at some point. If you'd like to learn hand percussion I recommend having a hand drum of some kind.

*** Specialties ***
The styles I teach are Rock, Jazz, Latin, R&B/Hip-Hop, Funk/Soul, Reggae, Folk/Indie, Metal/Hardcore and World Rhythms. I teach from the heart and develop a natural feel for my students. I also use multiple books mixed into my teaching.

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.

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.

Cool down to earth teacher, amazing on drums / bongos. I'm a beginner and just bought some bongos so I wanted a few lessons to get myself started. Our first lesson was a blast and I'm gonna continue to take more lessons with Brian when I am able to.

About Kimberley
SPECIAL RATES FOR ONLINE STUDENTS! ASK ME!

Hi there!

My name is Kimberley, and I'm a British singer/songwriter, and I love teaching young people about this amazing industry! I offer songwriting, singing and piano lessons, as well as writing and composition. My first rule is that there isn't any! Each student is unique and different, and my goal is to teach in a way that's fun and interesting and keeps people engaged.

I teach all ages, young and old, novice to experienced, and take great joy in meeting new people and getting to know them and helping them learn.

Coaching can take place at your home or we can sit outside in my apartment by the pool, we can even go to a park and sit in the sunshine! I'm really flexible and want this to work for you at your own pace to help you reach your own goals.

I received one of the hig
hest marks ever in the country for Grade 8 piano when I was 14 years old and I haven't looked back! I've performed all over the world as a singer, and have always incorporated my piano as much as I can. I have had a joint number one in the UK, as well as other singles in the charts and have done arena tours throughout the UK and Europe. I have masses of performance experience and a lot of industry contacts as well.

Get in touch and we'll go from there! I'm excited to meet you and chat about what you want to achieve.

About Antonio
Antonio first began his path in music on the alto saxophone and soon after took up the bassoon in high school. Since then, Antonio has studied bassoon under the direction of John Campbell, while pursuing a degree in Music Education.

As a future band director, Antonio's passion lies in working with young students to not only develop quality instrumental technique and expression, but also in the development of a strong character. He is staunchly dedicated to traditional and emerging methods of music education and pedagogy, and actively applies these principles to lessons with his students.

I have performed as a bassoonist with the CSULB Symphonic Band under Jeremy Arnold, CSULB Symphony Orchestra under Johannes Müller Stosch, and Bellflower Symphony Orchestra under Joseph Taylor.

· Bassoon · In studio
As someone that has rehearsed and worked on chamber music with Antonio, I have to say that his pedagogy extends much further than bassoon. His background in rehearsal techniques and broad musical knowledge have been indispensable during our rehearsals, and he has often pointed out ways in which I can fine tune the expressionistic or technical aspects of my playing. Awesome teacher!

I actually got these lessons for my Mom who is 86 yrs young. After her list lesson she called me and said she was very glad I picked Diego for her instructor, he has the patience that she'd hope for. They both sang together in Spanish it was awesome and she is very excited to continue her classes with Diego.. So I'm going to bumper her up to 45 min. Instead of 30 min on her next set of classes. Thanks Diego for helping make my Mom's dreams of playing classical guitar come true.... her daughter...Susie
