I believe music is an art form that offers one of the greatest paths to intelligence a human can achieve. Learning and teaching music are key parts of how all culture was originally created and transmitted. Sharing the knowledge and expertise I have acquire over the years with students is very gratifying, but so is receiving their unique input on any matter. I believe that our classes are ways for us to connect to students and for them to play, be creative, explore and keep me also on the path of discovery. It's really a two way street.

Andrés Fonseca

Drummer, Composer, Producer, Educator

Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Andrés Fonseca started playing piano at an early age, but soon after he discovered his true passion for percussion instruments. After completing his studies at the Universidad Sergio Arboleda in Bogotá, he won a scholarship to study music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Berklee with a dual degree, cum laude, in Contemporary Composition & Production as well as Jazz Drumset Performance.

Since coming to the Unites States, Andrés has performed in major venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Apollo Theater in New York City; the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; and the Detroit Jazz Festival, among others. He has released his own compositions with his band, Unlimited Perception, in addition to recording for and playing with many of his peers.

Andrés’ unique voice--in both drums and his own compositions--blends the sound and tonalities of modern jazz with traditional Latin music. His work interweaves traditional, ancestral, specifically Colombian music, with modern drumset and its evolution mainly through jazz and contemporary music.
