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.

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.
JoAnn C.
Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

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!

About Joe

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 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.

Drew was a great help getting me started on the kit. I was a beginner with minimal experience and spent one semester with him. The lessons started out in-person and had to move online halfway through the semester due to COVID-19. This didn’t stop the progression of learning. Everything continued and I consistently got better through great instruction.

Drew is great at relating material to real-life situations which really helps with the learning process. My main instrument is bass guitar and he constantly related information to how similar bass and drums are and how they should work together.

After one semester, I feel confident in my ability to practice correct technique and the ability to play with others. Thanks Drew!
