Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!
Janna R.
David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

"I am a high school band director and Cameron was our percussion instructor last school year. He did a wonderful job with the students! He covered all areas of percussion from marching band, to concert band, and even percussion ensemble. He pushed the students and expanded their skills on all percussion instruments, all while keeping things engaging for the students. He programmed for and rehearsed our three percussion ensembles last year. Cameron was an integral part of our band program and our students loved working with him!"

Profile_71595_pi_Carmen_Color_01
"My daughter and I have been taking lessons with Carmen for over four years now. Carmen has proven herself to be a outstanding teacher and wonderful person.

When we started our lessons with Carmen, my daughter was 7 years old and I was in my 40s. And we take our lessons together. Carmen has done a excellent job of meeting the challenge of having both a child and adult student. She personalizes our lessons to our interests and goals while keeping in mind our individual strengths and skills.

Our lessons initially started with the drum set. My daughter now proudly calls herself a percussionist. Our lessons with Carmen now include snare solos, marimba, vibraphone, bells, tympani, clave, agogo bells, tambourin and ganza. (We plan to start Conga soon.) Styles we study with her include classical orchestral, rock, jazz, blues and samba.

Carmen creates but a core structure for continued skill advancement while integrating this to match our interest. For example right now, my daughter and I have been focusing more on Samba rhythms. Carmen integrated a system for our drum rudiments to be incorporated into a Samba beat to maximize our practice (and fun).

Carmen goes beyond the scheduled lesson time to help her student. Between lessons Carmen will produce record tracks of her playing various pieces for us to use as a guide during our practices. She will download music for us to enrich our understanding of a genre that we are studying. And she will email or text us between lessons to follow-up on our status if we had specific difficulties in our lesson.

I would highly recommend Carmen as a percussion teacher for a child, an adult or (as in our case) both. We definitely plan to continue our lessons with her."

"Mariano was an amazing percussion and drum set teacher. His lessons were engaging and productive, and he was always able to communicate an idea or musical concept in a way that I was able to understand and connect with. After about 2 years of lessons I was accepted into the Orange County School of the Arts for percussion and I owe my success to the lessons I took with Mariano. I continued lessening throughout high school and my skill level contined to grow. What I loved about Mariano's teaching was his unique ability to take very simple exercises and make them more difficult and therefore much more beneficial. Along with stressing the importance of basic technique, he would constantly inteoduce me to new things - Afro beats, traditional grip, Latin beats, new ways to sight read, and 4 mallet marimba technique. I would highly suggest taking lessons with Mariano if you are looking for a fun, encouraging teacher who has lots of experience with a variety of percussion performance!"
