I started playing music at the age of 3. Hailing from a long line of musicians, my first musical experiences were vocal performance & the drum set. In junior high, I expanded my skill set to the piano. My skills were honed & perfected in the Latin Jazz/Pop super-group ‘Soulsa Caliente’. I later organized my own multi-genre band and performed in various venues throughout the city of Houston, TX & southern regions of the U.S. My summer months were spent participating and teaching in the Diaz Music Institute’s Latin Jazz Workshop conducted annually by Jose Antonio Diaz, Horace Young, Noe Marmolejo & other great musical heavyweights. My diligence, focus, and perfectionism began to shine before I even graduated from high school. The most notable were: All State jazz drummer #1 ranking
I am 42, and started young of 12 years of age with drums. I also play the guitar, bass, piano, and sing, but am classically trained by professionals for a decade or more in drums. I take the student through the subject and address the very beginning, to more advance concepts and relationship to "what is going on" and "how to address blocks" with insight, techniques, and support. I like to teach out of the book and in the book with occasional additional guitar or bass to develop my students.
I started drums at the age of 12, and I am now 42! I am a native Houstonian with a degree in network engineering and over a decade of formal education in percussion. I have taught drums now for over a year with a company from California and would love to be your new drum teacher. I am also a recording instructor, and have been featured on radio programs.
I strive to provide students with the tools needed to master musical skills. I also strive to be creative, nurturing and most of all, patient. It is very rewarding to see a student of mine excel in their musical endeavors. Every student may learn at their own pace but I build them all up so that the end result is the same: musical mastery.
My teaching experience dates back to my high school days. I taught private lessons to students at the middle school I attended so they would be prepared for what they'd have to do once they got to our level. As a senior in high school I aided the drumline at another local high school that had just opened. At the present time I am teaching musicians of all ages, ranging from the age of 6 to elderly adult. Before graduating from college, my passion for and knowledge of percussion created an opportunity for me to work for the North Forest Community All-Star Band Drumline and the North Forest High School Drumline. This position allowed me to teach the drumline and instill the discipline and tools needed to win competitions. I have worked with all kinds of students from all walks of life.
I have been drumming for 7 years, I received drum lessons for 6 months and was also a student in the percussion section in school from grades 6-11 so not only do i have the improv skills but also the technical and structured part of it as well. I have a great system for teaching students who are eager to learn.
I am a freelance drummer based in Baytown, TX. I have always had a passion for music and have really enjoyed expressing myself though drums over the years and would love the opportunity to teach you how to do the same. I am very clear and easy to work with as a teacher. I strongly believe in hands on learning and am very patient with my students and work at the pace that is best for each specific student. A little about my qualifications: I started playing drums at the age of 11 and at that time I was in the percussion class at my school and learned all about technique and how to read music and I continued in percussion through out Junior high and high school. Then the following year, at the age of 12 I began receiving lessons for drum set. I have now been playing live at least

I am a working musician. I have been playing music for 17 years. I have a great knowledge of both drums and guitar and am building a knowledge in many other areas.

I have given lessons to musicians who are now professional musicians. I love passing on the knowledge that I learn.
