About Abel T.
Hi! My name is Abel Tabares and I am a professional drummer. I graduated in 2013 from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University with a degree in Jazz Studies.
I have taught all ages and levels for more than 9 years. Whether you are a complete beginner picking sticks up for the first time or an advanced student looking for new material to work on, I can help reach your goals guaranteed.
I am passionate about education and believe every student is unique as a musician. As a teacher I am dedicated to bringing the highest level of instruction to my students and making sure they are continuously improving. We will always work toward a specific goal catered to you. With my approach many of my students have been accepted to their schools Marching, Concert, and Jazz Bands as well as All-State Jazz Bands and All State/Regional Orchestras.

I studied with Abel for 3 years as an adult student and had a great experience. He’s a very dedicated drummer and teacher, is patient and smart, and is also a cool guy to hang out with. He became a great mentor, and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am today without him!Show More
Wonderful drum teacher! Works well with children of all ages and is incredibly patient with his students. I’ve known Abel for years and I highly recommend him for students looking to improve for their technique to compete in school bands.
