Erasmo R.

Murrieta, CA

About Erasmo

Hello Parents and Students,

I have been teaching and writing music professionally for ten years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't be where I am at if it weren't for his help and positive encouragement. Now I try to encourage all of my students the same way.

After high school I went on and played percussion with various Orchestras such as the "œInland Valley Symphony Orchestra" and "Mt. San Jacinto Symphony Orchestra."

I have also been involv
ed in the DCI (Drum Corps International) and Drumline community. I toured for four years and experienced performing with groups such as Yamato Drum and Bugle Corps 2002-2005, Black Knights 2006, and RCC marching and winter percussion under the direction of Scott Johnson & Jeff Lee in 2002, and Sean Vega & Jim Wunderlich in 2003.

During my college years I started playing Jazz Vibraphone in my school'™s top big-band. This allowed me the opportunity to play Jazz Piano which I have performed and still study until this day. As a result, Jazz has now become one of my biggest passions.

As a Professional International Composer, I have had the privilege of writing and arranging for many marching bands, wind ensembles, and indoor percussion ensembles, including orchestrations, recordings and sequencing projects for media, and musical theatre in the United States and Japan.

I am also currently an adjudicator for the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) and a member of the Vic-Firth Education Team.

I hope that this gives you a close and personal Idea of where I come from and hope that I can help you get the most out of your experience with music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that in order for you to get the most out of our lessons it takes both, the Teacher'™s and Student'™s understanding and attention from both ends. sometimes giving all of the information in the world won't help if one there is no engagement and two if me as a teacher don't make sure that you understand. So I like to make sure to explain things in more than one way to make sure the student understands the concepts and what to practice.

I like to keep a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mallets, Concert and Marching Sticks, Metronome, Practice pad, and Literature.
(Acoustic and Electric Piano are available depending on the time we arrange our lessons at the studio)

*** Travel Equipment ***

(I sometimes bring additional implements, such as hand drums, like a djembe and other accessories, depending on the focus of our lessons.)

Great Teacher

Though at times his schedule can be a little cluttered, Erasmo is always willing to add another lesson to his calendar. He's an all-around great teacher and nice guy, and this really shows through the relaxed, chill environment he creates during lessons. He taught me almost everything I know about music, and I feel like I can come to him whenever I have a question about a certain technique or piece of music. Respect.

Amazing instructor

Erasmo has been my instructor and has taught me mallet percussion for the past year, and over that year I have improved unbelievably. He is an amazing instructor, very patient and helps explain so the student can fully understand. I have gotten very far within such little time thanks to him. I have become such a better musician from the time I started learning from Erasmo, and I have gotten many great opportunities to become an even better musician thanks to the instruction I have learned. I would highly recommend him for anyone of any age.

Jacob P.

Yucaipa, CA

I grew up playing and listening to jazz and rock music. That is my main focus in the beginning. We will start simple rudiments and beats for snare and drumset and grow from there. Technique, control and passion.

About Jacob

I am an audio engineer student at Art Institute of California- Inland Empire in San Bernardino. While going to school, I have been doing "gigs" in LA off and on with connections in the industry. I have access to extremely nice studios! I have been playing guitar and drums since the 6th grade and continue to perform and play off and on!

BIO ON MUSIC:

Biography
Jacob P. was born and raised in Palm Springs; California. Growing up with parents who had very different musical backgrounds, which led him to want to live in world full of music. At the age 10, he picked up his first guitar and
began to take his first piano lessons and a year later then picking up the first pair of drumsticks. He developed a self-taught technique for drum set, while being mentored by his older brother, Sean, (endorsed by Soultone Cymbals, and former student of LA Music Academy and University of Oregon) traditional jazz artist, Allen Goodman. (Goodman has performed with many famous jazz artists in his during his drumming career and was mentored by Buddy Rich. He wrote the intro to the George of the Jungle cartoon series, and is now playing with many jazz artists at Vickys of Santa Fe in Indian Wells, California, with the Desert Cities Jazz Band) Gregory Whitmore, Band Director at Cathedral City High School, has also been a mentor to Jacob.

In 2009, he performed Ron Nelsons Danza Capriccio with the Cathedral City High School Symphonic Band and world renowned saxophonist Kenneth Tse at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. That event was followed by a performance tour of the United Kingdom with the Cathedral City High School Symphonic Band.

In 2011, he ventured off to France and Germany with the CCHS symphonic band for his second performance tour with the group. Playing at many venues including, Heidelberg Castle in Germany and Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte, outside of Paris, France. He has been on national television performing at the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl in 2007 and in the Hollywood Christmas parade in 2010 with the CCHS Marching Band. He has performed with various groups within the community throughout the years.

Over the years, music has grown into a passion for him and provided solace while dealing with a rare medical condition, Chiari 1 Malformation. Jacob attends The Art Institute of California Inland Empire, studying Audio Production.

I have a two part approach to playing and teaching the drums, Time and Taste. Playing the drums is more than just rhythm, it is also about musicianship and groove.

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.

Vincent O.

Moreno Valley, CA

Teaching drums would be customized per student. Goals depend on how fast the student moves and practices. I will start off teaching just a little bit of snare drum from books and gradually ad everything in. Rock will be the first style we will start off with and may work our ways towards jazz, Latin, shuffle, blues, and so on. The key concepts will be to develop syncopation and rhythm.
