Edgar V.

Miami, FL

If you hire my as your instructor, (or your son’s instructor), you will find you or your son immersed in an exciting music environment! I focus my lessons on 5 core skills for my students: Coordination, Rhythms, Music Theory, Sight Reading and Styles & Interpretation. I will apply these concepts in a way that is very intuitively and dynamic, so you will find you or your son playing like a pro in no time!

I also understand that you or your son will develop and learn at unique pace, and in order to further develop your skills and make your learning process more enjoyable, I will treat you as my friend or buddy and not only as my student. This is because studies have demonstrated that people tend to learn more when they make a connection with their instructor. Therefore my goal will be to find your strengths and weaknesses, so I’d know how to successfully convey the right message so you or your son become a better drummer with each lesson.

Note.

About Edgar

Hi there! My name is Edgar V., I'm from Bogota, Colombia but I now reside in Miami, FL. I have an Associates Degree in Music Business, Creative Performance from Miami Dade College. I'm focused, patient, enthusiastic and very active! "Schedule a lesson with me now and start either speaking in Spanish or playing drums from day 1!."

**For Drum students***

My passion is playing drums and percussion. I've been playing drums for 14 years now. First I studied drums in Colombia with Shakira's former drummer Italo Lamboglia for 4 years and then when I moved here in US, I've kept refining my craf
t taking drum lessons at Miami Dade College, learning new techniques and so on.

I'm currently an independent drummer. I play with many artists and bands as a freelancer, So I get to perform very often live in different venues all over South Florida. I also freelance at different T.V. Networks as a background drummer and percussionist for artists promoting their songs on TV shows. I have won drum contests and competitions on stores and online as well. I have recorded various records and singles with major producers and performed in different countries as a hired drummer.

I've been sharing my knowledge in drums with others since I first started playing drums! I’m a believer that the more you share, the more you learn, and overtime I've realized that the process never stops. At first I was a drum instructor at a local church in Colombia. I had 10 – 20 students in a single classroom -- It was a great experience! Then when I came to the U.S. I've been mainly instructing privately, so I have plenty of experience.

Schedule a lesson with me now and start learning the art of playing drums. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities. After all, you might be the next music prodigy, but perhaps you don’t know it yet! See you soon!

Excellent drum teacher!

Edgar is an amazing drummer and teacher. He's very patient and committed to make you a great drummer. He also takes the instruction from the "classroom" to the real world, he once took me to one of his shows and let me play a song with his band!!! That was amazing.

Rene T.

Miami, FL

percussion and tempo recognition. techniques and style variation

About Rene

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International As
sociation for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15 albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

I looked around for a while before I took lessons with Rene as I was looking for someone who could help me learn to sing as a beginner while also improving my guitar playing. Rene was exactly what I was looking for and he has a great studio set up too. A fantastic musician... highly recommended.

Mitchell C.

Miami, FL

I picked up the drums at an early age. Played in a bunch of bands growing up. The drums are such a fun and physical instrument, using your whole body. The energy it brings is truly unmatched. I will guide you step by step in playing a full drum kit, learning limb independence to create rocking drum beats.

About Mitchell

With almost 20 years of music education experience, I have developed a super fun and effective teaching method that has proven to work. I am a kid at heart and love working with children. And as the oldest child of 6, I possess the necessary patience and enthusiasm for their learning development. In addition, I have worked with many adult students who initially thought it was "too late" for them to learn an instrument. They proved themselves wrong and were very successful with their new found talent. I have been a professional recording artist and live performer since the age of 15. I began te
aching around the same time as a way of earning extra spending money. As the years went on, I fell more in love with teaching and formed a career out of it. So come join me on this musical journey and give the gift of music!!

Jerry J.

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Beginning students will begin studying from the book "Progressive Drum Grooves" by Craig Lauritsen which he/she will be required to have each lesson.

Although instructor will have drumsticks, brushes etc. students should carry them along for every lesson.

A drum set or practice pad will be a very crucial part in seeing growth from our lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
(1st Kit)
Standard sized 5 piece Mapex Drum Set with cymbals.

(2nd Kit) "ideal for young children"
Fusion sized Mapex drum set with cymbals. 18" bass drum

The lesson room also has a PA system for CD/MP3 player capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide practice pad if needed. If student is learning the drum set they will need to supply for in-home lessons.

Charles M.

Hollywood, FL

I've been teaching Music for 5 plus years and my students have gone on to accomplish great things. My goal and challenge for every student is to teach them how to play, read and listen to music. This will enable them the ability to play any song and any style of music. I specialize in Jazz, R&B and Classical. Typically I learn my students leaning habits whether its hands on or visual and their attention span, so I can't effectively teach my students. I Can't wait to meet you!

About Charles

I have acquired over five years of teaching experience, travel from ages 5 to 17 acting and playing music. In addition I am a full-time music teacher and spend my free time volunteering at a local high school teaching music. I love music and teaching, it is amazing to see the look on a student face when they learn something new and even better when they perform and stun the audience the joy that my students get makes me happy its confirmation of a job well done.
