About Gabriel C.
I started playing drums when I was in second grade and formed a band with my 2 older brothers who played bass and guitar. It was something to do when we younger but when I got into high school, I took playing drums a lot more seriously. I was in a very competitive marching band playing bass drum and tenors in the drumline and at the same time, I was introduced to jazz drumming. The improvising aspect of jazz drumming sparked my love for it because the freedom it gave me to express myself was something drumline could not do. After getting state recognition for my playing in jazz bands, I transferred to a high school with a more intensive jazz program. I am currently a jazz studies major at California State University, Sacramento. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!Show More

We are very pleased with Gabriel. He is very good with my son!
Good first lesson.
I’m a visual learner. It was very helpful that Gabriel provided the music sheet. It helped me to see and hear how he played the rhythms on the drum. I’m looking forward to my next lesson.
Gabriel is great! he is so patient with my seven year old grandson and has a wonderful personality. He is making the drum lessons fun.
