I'm a professional percussionist from Cuba.

I graduated in music from the National School of Art (Escuela Nacional de Arte, ENA) in Havana, Cuba, in 2007. At ENA, I got a professional preparation in Symphonic percussion and Cuban percussion.

After graduating, I worked as a music teacher at an elementary public school for two years and performed with the ENA Symphonic Orchestra, ENA Jazz Band and a salsa band.

I also have experience performing in Cuba and the US.

If you are interested in learning Spanish I can give the lesson in Spanish.

Dariel is an excellent teacher! He is patient and makes learning a fun process. He is a professional musician from Cuba. He taught me not only Music Theory, but also basic Conga percussion and he gave me a lot of knowledge about Cuban music. He recommended videos and songs that I could listen to.

Dariel is a patient, and effective teacher. I walked into his studio with absolutely NO musical experience and in a matter of weeks Dariel had achieving significant progress. My dream of become proficient at playing the conga has never seemed so possible and within my reach with Dariel!!
