Hello! My name is Daniel and I have been playing drums and percussion for over 15 years. I have two older brothers, one plays guitar, and the other plays bass, so it only made sense to me to pick the drums as my instrument and I quickly fell in love and knew what I wanted to do with my life!
I'm very versatile when it comes to various styles of music such as rock, funk, soul, pop, jazz, blues, swing, latin, afrobeat, as well as reggae/rocksteady/ska. I can teach you everything that I know about proper technique, music theory, drum notation, chart reading, rudiments, groove/feel, improvisational skills, and more
My main focus is on the drum set but I also play congas, bongos, timbales, and various handheld percussion instruments. I'm really excited to get to know you and bring out your inner percussionist!
I have had a difficult time finding an instructor in Austin who kept me engaged and helped me grow as a musician. That changed with my lessons from Daniel!
Daniel did a thorough assessment of my skill set on the kit and created a lesson plan that works for me and my goals. He is attentive, works to what my needs are as a student, and has great communication skills. Band mates commented on my improvement on the kit within two weeks of starting lessons!
Daniel has been an ideal teacher for my 15 year old son. His has a wide stylistic range that keeps things interesting and challenging, and he’s also very attentive to my son’s own interests and abilities. He’s centrally located, easy to get to, and easy to work with. Highly recommended.+ Read More
