Once we establish a general goal, I will then develop a curriculum especially for you and we can set some goals for 3 months down the line, and six months down line. I will help you get to where you want to be, and push you past that point and take you as far as I can in your musical journey! Everyone learns differently and at a different pace. The important thing is that we are always moving forward, and that means PRACTICING!

About Miguel T.

I come from a very musical family. My parents bought me my first drum set for my 2nd birthday, and that started it all for me. I started playing Latin percussion (Congas, Timbales) around age 7, guitar and piano at age 9, trumpet at 10, Bass at 14, Accordion at age 17, Trombone at 18, and I am always trying to better myself on all those instruments! My dad was my main instructor and influence while growing up. I toured professionally with my family’s band from 2001-2008. I worked with “For the Love of Drums” music studio in San Antonio. I am a studio and touring musician, producer, arranger, and transcriber. I lead my own Tejano band and was nominated in 2012 for a Tejano Music Award for Best New Group. I am currently a member of the 5x Grammy Award winning Tejano group, Little Joe Y La Familia. I have been able to share the stage with many great musicians in California and in Texas and have a lot of experience to bring into your lessons!
