About Enrique
I truly enjoy teaching and have many years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages.

I try to teach my students how important it is to listen to themselves play. When appropriate, I bring a guitar or bass (depending on the student's need) and help the student learn how drums relate to the rest of the music. I want all of my students to enjoy playing and to have music as a tool for life: one that helps them express themselves, think creatively, learn specific and technical skills, and grow musically. I believe all people can benefit from learning to play an instrument. If you or your child believe that music can provide a new way to find meaning and joy in life while learning a valuable skill, please contact me.

In addition, I have successfully taught many students who have had trouble in school due to lack of motivati
on and/or learning disabilities. Drum/percussion lessons have reawakened these discouraged students' desire to learn and I am happy to adjust my teaching style for any disabilities or difficulties a student may have. I am happy to provide references from parents whose children were struggling in other areas of life and who looked forward to a music lesson when all else seemed to be a chore.

More information: My recent recordings include top-selling Mexican pop artist Yuridia's newest album, Entre Mariposas, produced by his longtime collaborator Javier Calderon, and I have shared credits with Kenny Aronoff and James East.

Winner , San Diego Music Awards with the band Skelpin.

Percussionist of Manolito Gypsy (Gypsy Kings).

*** Lesson Details ***
Classes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on age and ability. I give lessons at your home or in my home studio.

I will start by talking to the student and/or parent about what the student would like to accomplish from the lessons and what, if any, musical background the student already has. It's OK if you don't have any experience at all.

The first class is when I focus on understanding how the student learns. Everyone learns differently and is motivated differently, so I make it a point to get to know what makes the student tick. During the first lesson, we will do some basic exercises so I can pinpoint where they are, and I'll assign skills to practice for the next class.

If the class is taught at my home studio, I record it for the student to refer to during the week. I assign exercises for every class, so please plan to practice at least 15 minutes per day while you are taking lessons.

Finally, I offer a recording opportunity for students who are writing songs and would like to learn recording skills. This is an option for advanced students, students who are looking to record a demo, or for young students who would like to preserve their new accomplishments on an audio file that can be given as a gift.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland TD-6 and Yamaha stage custom and acoustic drums. Full in-home studio. Machudo Cajons (Drum Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar recording software,Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar rec software,

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will bring appropriate lesson materials to your home and we will work together to get the right practice materials for you within your budget.

*** Specialties ***

Giulia is fantastic! She listened to my needs and started getting me going in the right direction right away. She's clearly passionate about music and is equally enthusiastic about teaching. I've learned a lot in a short period of time, and I feel more confident and "at home " singing!

Giulia, quite simply, is the best. Very patient, especially with someone trying to speak Italian with a Southern accent. Her lessons proceed in a very linear and logical way, aiding retention. She also delivers excellent fundamental rules of thumb that help a lot when encountering new material. And all of this is delivered in a superior style that combines equal parts gentle prompting and sound teaching techniques with a soupçon of Florentine humor and zest. My highest rating!

About Jimmy
My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about five years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

About Erika
Hola amigos!

My name is Erika Hoffman Garcia and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can
definitely do that! Cheers to learning a new language!

Hey there! I'm a fully bilingual (English & Spanish) graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio and am now studying Rehabilitation Science and Technology.

Jaime was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEACHER! He had the ability to work with students who were Pre-K through college. He could relate to them in a way that that fostered mutual trust and provided a safety zone for students to work and grow as life-long learners. I completely and wholeheartedly believe that he has can teach any subject from beginning reading to WHATEVER!
