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

Experienced drummer with 13 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty and I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

Great lesson, I leaned so much from Kevin! He has so much patience and is really good with giving tips and tricks.
Jon
Highly recommend Kevin! Just started drums and did 2 months of lessons with him at his in-home studio. Really cool set up, and he listens to what you’re interested in learning, while also recommending what to practice during the week between lessons. Also had a few jam sessions with him which were awesome!
Super chill guy, and I’m sure he’s great for every skill level and age. Thanks Kevin, will be back soon for follow up sessions!
Ellie M
Kevin is very resourceful and his instruction is clear and effective. As someone who did not have any experience with music software before, I’m already getting familiar with Logic and making songs with it after few weeks. Looking forward to future lessons.

I follow a mindfulness based approach to teaching which includes breathing techniques, body connections and fluidity with all aspects of drumming. Finding how each student learns most effectively, i.e. auditory, visual, kinesthetic, hybrid I develop a range of practice techniques to being each student to their maximum potential. Rooted in classical and world music I have the tools to teach any style of music on drum kit or hand drums. In addition, I have over 15 years of experience working at the United Nations International School in New York City.

Corey is a fantastic drummer! Take advantage of time at home while learning new skills, and this is a great way to stay active and keep your energy up. Corey has been drumming for a very long time and has an excellent positive attitude, you can't miss!
Alex
A great experience! I have been learning with Corey for about two months, and am already improving. I am a guitar player with some basic drumming experience. I was looking to finally get to the next level so I could record my own drum beats (also drumming always looked like a lot of fun!), and Corey is helping me to achieve this. He is a talented drummer himself, and was able to quickly assess my playing level so we could start building on it. He has a great eye and ear for issues with my technique and always has an exercise to address them. In a short time I have experienced significant improvement, playing some more creative drum patterns, and am looking forward to continuing.
A lot of fun, very fulfilling, great instructor! Highly recommended!

Corey is an awesome drummer....truly knows the heart and soul of his craft! He's patient and kind...all around a cool dude! Check him out!

About Richard

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers

Timothy B.
It's nice having a pro like Richard customize the lessons because he creates a greater understanding of music theory as a whole and then can bring it back down to a specific application like practicing scales with a clawhammer technique. I can tell he's gradually moving me along to meet my personal goals. You can't get that out of a book or a video.
Janice
I had a wonderful first lesson with Richard. It was fun and he taught me exercises that I can actually do and really make music right off the bat. I was scared that I'd be overwhelmed and not be able to do anything right but Richard broke things down into small steps that were easy to follow. I'm really looking forward to my next lesson. Thanks Richard!
Timothy B.
Very patient, personable, professional, and purposeful. Each lesson is packed full of building blocks for dexterity and familiarity with the instrument.
