Private Percussion Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 years and my students have gone on to play in bands and some even went on to study music in college. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few basic rock patterns and as time goes on you'll be able to play fills while also keeping the music steady. I specialize in understanding rhythms and practicing them slowly in order to develop the physical coordination which is needed to be successful on the drum kit. Generally I will make recordings for you to play along with. This makes it easier and fun to practice. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high sc

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

Online 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!

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.

My daughters anxiety was high the first day of highschool for band. The students were seasoned and Lauryn had not practiced in months. Chloe eased Lauryn’s nerves and gave her the confidence she needed in just the 1st lesson! She’s awesome!

"Carmen has been my son's teacher for last three years. He started when he was eleven, and now he is going to join his high school symphonic band after successfully auditioning for it. Two things stand out in Carmen's approach to teaching: 1st is her constant readiness to find ways to make students excited about learning and willing to do the work, 2nd is staying positive and encouraging all the time."

"Good assessment of child's starting point. Wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Great introduction into drum kit (we called it drum set in my day). At that point, needed to slow down and give child more fundamental practice time to soak in the concepts before racing on."

Profile_71595_pi_Carmen_Color_01
"My daughter and I have been taking lessons with Carmen for over four years now. Carmen has proven herself to be a outstanding teacher and wonderful person.

When we started our lessons with Carmen, my daughter was 7 years old and I was in my 40s. And we take our lessons together. Carmen has done a excellent job of meeting the challenge of having both a child and adult student. She personalizes our lessons to our interests and goals while keeping in mind our individual strengths and skills.

Our lessons initially started with the drum set. My daughter now proudly calls herself a percussionist. Our lessons with Carmen now include snare solos, marimba, vibraphone, bells, tympani, clave, agogo bells, tambourin and ganza. (We plan to start Conga soon.) Styles we study with her include classical orchestral, rock, jazz, blues and samba.

Carmen creates but a core structure for continued skill advancement while integrating this to match our interest. For example right now, my daughter and I have been focusing more on Samba rhythms. Carmen integrated a system for our drum rudiments to be incorporated into a Samba beat to maximize our practice (and fun).

Carmen goes beyond the scheduled lesson time to help her student. Between lessons Carmen will produce record tracks of her playing various pieces for us to use as a guide during our practices. She will download music for us to enrich our understanding of a genre that we are studying. And she will email or text us between lessons to follow-up on our status if we had specific difficulties in our lesson.

I would highly recommend Carmen as a percussion teacher for a child, an adult or (as in our case) both. We definitely plan to continue our lessons with her."
