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.

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.

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 Association 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 ...

As a drum instructor, I use a groove orientated approach to get the students deep in the pocket, I teach students how to sight read the Drum set Legend. I organize beats into 4 (four) main categories (classic rock, modern rock, hip-hop, and rap, as well as additional styles) while also breaking down each category into, a multitude of sub-styles. I stress the importance of developing a good hand technique, with snare drum rudiments, good hand and foot technique with drum set rudiments, and poly-rhythmic technique with poly-rhythmic rudiments. I believe drum lessons should not just be so tedious, so I usually assign a simple song or two to keep the students interest and allow creative process through improvisation, all the while providing different ride cymbal patterns to gain the ability to play along with any rhythm on the bass drum and snare.

I've been trying to teach myself guitar for 8 years now, just bits and pieces of a lot of songs, but after taking lessons from Andy for the last 2 month's, I can now play almost 40 songs all the way thru, and getting ready to put a band together, I couldn't have done it without Andy, He is an Awesome Teacher, Very Easy to work with, I would recommend taking lessons from Andy, If you want to take your guitar playing to the Next Level.

Andy is a great musician, teacher and person. He doesn't just understand music, he lives it. He is very patient and supportive with people and his talent definitely needs to be passed on to as many people who are lucky enough to get the chance!

I had looked at several people before settling on Andy for vocal lessons and I'm very happy I did. Even after a few lessons, I've noticed large strides in progress. He's very diligent and not complacent at all. He has stacks of books about voices and vocal faults- he's constantly trying to become better so you can be sure he'll do the same for you.

I've been very happy with my lessons so far and am giddy to see continued progress under Andy.

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 teaching 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 ...

I have taken lessons from Mitchell and have grown leaps and bounds in my ability to not on become a better guitar player, but also learning the fundamentals so that I can play on my own. He is the ultimate professional and his own skills as a musician show up when he is teaching.

It was a pleasure meeting Mitchell, he's a very good instructor. My daughter became very enthusiastic with everything that he taught her in just one hour. He was very clear with his methods and she understood everything. I recommend him as very good instructor.

You have seen how they do it and it seems like fun.
Maybe you have always wanted to try it,
or you are a drummer already that needs the extra practice and wants to improve the technique, then go for it.

About Vincent

Does not matter what your influences are, from Psychedelic Furs to All American Rejects from Green Day to Nirvana, Van Halen or Metallica, we know what is to be a music fan first then a musician. If you have the love for the music and a basic grasp of rhythm you can learn to play drums. First we teach you the mechanics then to follow the beat, once you have master these skills, practice will give you the ability to grow and create.

Alexander N. Miami, FL

I have been playing drums for 24+ years, and occasionally take on students.
For beginning students, I will teach snare drum method (stick control, rudiments, etc.)
For intermediate students (who can read music) I will teach drum kit method and/or more advanced percussion.
My philosophy is that music appreciation determines a student's desire to learn and excel at music performance. Students must communicate what styles/bands/musicians they enjoy, and I will tailor lessons for that genre.

About Alexander

24+ years of experience. Classically trained. Performance experience includes orchestra, rock, industrial, electronic, hip-hop, and jazz. I will teach how to read and write music notation. Beginners will start with snare drum method - reading/writing music, stick control, basic rudiments, etc. Intermediate (or fast learners) can have drum set instruction. Student should provide examples of music they enjoy, and I will tailor lessons to develop that style of performance. Can also provide advice/training on music recording/engineering. I have been in multiple bands and/or have worked in music recording studios in Washington DC, New Orleans, and New York City. I am new to Miami. I do not speak Spanish (sorry, I am still learning).
