He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)
Delilah F.
My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

My son takes drum and piano lessons with Alonso. Alonso is a fantastic music teacher. Alonso is always on time and really allows my son to be engaged with songs that he enjoys! Alonso has taught online and in home and we are very happy with the progress that our son has made with both the drums and the piano with Alonso!
Jeyme
Alonso is very good at assessing a students abilities and interests and adjusting lessons accordingly, very patient and encouraging ! My son is on the spectrum and his drumming classes have been a positive outlet for his energy and creativity and general self-control. 😊
Levy Strande
Alonso is a great teacher. I used to take piano lessons as a child but that faded. He's been the perfect teacher to help me get back into it and learn more advanced topics. He is very patient and is flexible with scheduling. He works at my pace to make sure that I'm getting the most out of each lesson. In our lessons, the focus is on songs that I am interested in. For anyone trying to get into music for the first time, or anyone who wants to start up again, I highly recommend reaching out to Alonso!

Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing for over 2 decades and have a lot of experience playing professionally. I am also currently a audio engineer and record music for a living. I have a professional studio that will give the student the ability to sit inside and feel what it like to be in a real studio, not just a practice space like pretty much every teacher i have ever had lessons with. I have a practical approach for any one getting started with drumming. But i also like to teach what the student wants to learn at that time. This varies based on the needs of the student.

About Jason

I love teaching people all that i have learned over the past 2 decades. I have a lot of knowledge and experience to impart. And I have easy ways to teach this material to get you up and running on your own as soon as possible. I teach all styles to any one of any age and any skill level. I have
