Experienced teacher and performer. I teach at the college level all the way down to youngsters (5 year old minimum age for me). I LOVE music and playing the drums and I'd like to share my experience with YOU!

As a performer I've toured the country multiple times with various artists, sometimes playing to crowds as large as 7,000. I've been on dozens of recording sessions and I've performed in just about anything type of venue you can imagine.

As a teacher I've maintained a roster of private students for over 10 years while also teaching as adjunct faculty for multiple colleges in Massachusetts. Additionally, I have a music therapy background which has shaped and informed my teaching style.

My favorite genres are jazz, rock, R&B, country, metal, basically anything with rhythm! Lets connect and get you moving forward on your instrument.

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!

Drum set! Everyone wishes they can play the drums but do you have what it takes? I believe you do! In drum set lessons I will teach you the fundamentals and skills you need to play by yourself at home, make a drum cover video for YouTube, or play in a band.

"Working with Garrett has been a wonderful experience. I was nervous to take drum lessons at first, but the environment at Garrett's studio is really comfortable, and he is very easy to talk to. As far as the lessons go, Garrett is great at breaking complicated topics down, and he pays a lot of attention to the fine details. Whenever I have trouble with something, he always has other ways of explaining the concept and fines a way to make it click with me. Garrett is also just as good with jazz as he is with rock and pop. We started with a lot of rock grooves and technique, and now we're working on my reading, jazz comping, and soloing. I learn something new at every lesson and always have a good time doing so--I'd highly recommend Garrett to anyone!"

"To the point...

Matthew is very good at knowing where you should start. Instead of pulling out basic rudiments from the start, Matthew had me play my set first. It was then he got a good understanding where I needed to start.

Matthew is very laid back, allows you to progress at your own speed, and always makes sure you got your lesson(s) before he leaves...

I would recommend Matthew to any drummer wanting professional instruction."

"Chuck has been teaching my son drums for several years now. In addition to being an accomplished musician and sound board technician in his own right, Chuck is also a great drum teacher and all around friendly guy.

I have seen my son’s drumming improve drastically over the last few years while he’s been under Chuck’s tutelage. Chuck has also taught my son how to mix his drumming with other instrument tracks on the sound board in order to create CDs and MP3s to send to his grandfather.

If you want a drum teacher who approaches his craft in a spirit of excellence, Chuck Reichel from Sound Picture Studio is the instructor for you!"

"Best drum teacher in Orange County

I've been talking lessons with Mike for about 5 years. He is both a great teacher and person. He combines a high level of skill and teaching ability with unmatched enthusiasm. His lessons are a combination of practice on the pad and on the kit, culminating in learning to play songs. Learning a new instrument is not easy, but this approach works and is very rewarding( as well as fun). Mike is also very friendly, fun, and energetic. To summarize, you WILL NOT regret choosing Mike. He is great teacher, and is someone who you or your child can become friends with. I will never regret having Mike as my drum teacher."
